Trot, I hardly knew ya

Today Red Sox nation is in a somber mood. We're tired. Very very tired. The game last night was 4.5 hours long, and it started at 8:25. That would make it about 1:30 before we got to bed, and when we finally did break free of the television, it was with heavy hearts. That other team, the one with the horribly offensive logo on their hats? They came alive in the 11th inning after an old and beloved friend, Trot Nixon, broke the tie that had lasted several innings, and opened the flood gates. After Trot's hit, Cleveland went wild and scored 7 runs in the top of the 11th. It was painful. Very very painful. Trot is our friend. He's one of the good guys. When he left the Red Sox this past winter, we were sad to see him go. And look how he returns the favor.

OK, obviously he has to play hard for his new team, but really. Does he have to take their logo so seriously and lead a massacre against the Sox?

I'm taking this personally.

I honestly like Cleveland, the city. It's a really great city. It has the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, which, if you have never been, you MUST go, especially if you're a baby boomer. Jacobs Field, where the Indians play, is huge and new and has Kosher food stands! Cleveland has a vibrant Jewish community. It's a nice place to live. Real estate is about half that of Boston. It's close to Chicago and New York. They have a good art museum. They're on a lake. OK, they also have a river that occasionally catches fire. That's a problem. But all in all, it's a fine place.

But those Indians. I'm not loving them.

Oh, come on ... cheer up. It's our Trot who broke the tie. They owe us now. If it weren't for the Sox, they wouldn't have won!

I'm not loving them tonight, either. Grrrrrrrr.

I believe Michael Ruhlman lives in Cleveland, too. I love him. Not like I love Anthony Bourdain, more of a "Boy, I'd like to pick his brains about food" kind of thing.
