Sox, Southside, Oversleeping, Annoyances and Apologies

I have to get the baseball talk out of the way first (mainly directed at you John, I'm sure you're the only one who pays attention). WHITE SOX WON BITCHES. 2-1, it was a good game. It kind of feels like we won dirty because there was a dispute about a call at the bottom of the 9th, but you can't reverse it now. The series is tied and we go to Anahiem from the next three games. We should win those three then wrap it up back here on the Southside (you have no idea how many times a day I knock on wood. I'm sure it really helps the team). Seven more wins and it's ours. It's been a long time coming, 88 years. We're due for a championship.

Ever since the playoffs started I've been dying to go back home to watch a game there, in some Southside Irish bar surrounded by people who will be just as into the game as I am. My mom is coming to get me tomorrow so I can watch Friday's game at home, then Kelly can give me a ride back up here since she's coming to visit me anyways. SOUTHSIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE here I come.

This past Saturday I had work at 9:00 am, so I wasn't planning on going out. I've told myself that the past 3 weekends when I haad work that early and ended up going out and getting drunk each time. But I had a good excuse this time, the Sox had just beaten Boston to clinch, so naturally I had to celebrate. I came home at 4 am, and set the alarm for 8 am. What time do I wake up? 10:30. Sweet, I'm an hour and a half late for work. I had never worked with the guy who was working, so I'm sure I make a great first impression on him. From now on, NO GOING OUT WHEN I HAVE WORK AT 9. Or at least be home by 1 am, let's be sensible here.

I really hate when I'm the passenger in a car and the driver rolls down my window for me using the automatic window-roller-downer-thingy. If I want the window down more than I already put it, I'LL DO IT MYSELF. Or if it's not open at all, maybe I just don't want it open in the first place. I think I'm old enough to make my own decision. I'm adding this to the list of stupid shit that annoys me. While we're on the topic, I hate people who use bookbags with wheels. Is it nessecary? I remember telling Kelly two years ago that whenever I see one I just want to go over to it and kick it over. So now everytime I see one, I mentally image myself kicking the shit out of your stupid bookbag on wheels and it makes me a little bit better. Not much, but it's the only thing that keeps my rage intact when I see one.

This is probably the worst post I have ever written. Sorry bitches.

I know it's been ages since I commented, but that's 'cause I'm a bad friend.

The White Sox won! OH. MY. GOSH! That's the best news ever. Ever, ever. That's why I love you. Keep knocking on wood, Katie. Keep knocking on wood.

"SOUTHSIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE Speaking of ghetto...

One time (I blogged about it), I didn't wake up for work and I guess they had been calling and calling and when I finally heard my phone, I heard the doorbell at the same time and it was my supervisor on the phone asking if I was okay then I answered the door and it was a deputy. One that I happened to know. It sucked. At least you're not late and work for the cops. And I meant for that to be a run-on sentence. Bite me.

Dude, you would LOVE to ride in the car with me. I like to purposely use the child lock on the windows and freeze the passenger and that kinda fun stuff. I can't WAIT 'til we hang out!

I don't know about those backpack with wheels either. I mean, how fucking lazy are these people? Though, I've seen the workload and big ass books some carry. Maybe you're just mean and don't feel for the heavier kids, Katie. Maybe they have back problems? Maybe they can't breath when they're walking to class from all the Twinkies they eat and it helps them? Maybe, just MAYBE they're lazy bastards. Just be nice already. I got you one for Christmas.

It's not POP, it's a COKE. Douche. I'm a good girl, though. I didn't say it earlier.

COngratulations!! Don't worry - the Angels were helped by a couple of bad calls in game #5 against the Yanks. I'm not crying about it, but it's okay if a call goes against them. i have to log on to see that replay.

Keep kicking ass!!!

I usually pick up hitch hikers & then lock their door for them. Sort of the opposite and a little more scary!

I'll be in Chicago in February. If you can drag out the series long enough, I'll watch a game with you. I know what you mean trying to find like minded fans. Irish bar? Sounds good. Hopefully I won't be too busy defending my whirley ball championship!!!

Rat In A Cage said...

I just watched that highlight several times. Total mayhem in the crowd & then watched the home run. It's so beautiful.

Congratulations, again.

Jaxe said...

Go Sox! (esp. so I can road trip to Chicago and party!!!)

Oh, and fricking HOLARIOUS post on Jenn's site. She's getting all worked up and sending them here to get you muwahahahahaa... oh wait, I'm supposed to be getting you back for that dirty trick! *slap* ;-)

Wait, for all I know your the same person and I just got duped again! DoH! ;-) Go Sox nonetheless. out.


Rat In A Cage said...

You're evil. I just went back to Jenn's site after reading Jaxe's comment.

Bad bad bad!

the queen of duplicity, mistress of mayhem, crusher of crushes - you have stunned many this week. But your math sucks -
The series is tied and we go to Anahiem from the next three games. We should win those three then wrap it up back here on the Southside
If the Sox have already won one, then win three in CA, that equals 4. There won't be a wrap-up game...
Once I was in Chicago and decided to go to Comiskey for a night game. I got there early and had drinks in the original McCuddy's (this was the year before they started building the new stadium). It was cool to see the pictures of Ruth and Cobb and others having beers in the same bar.

Rat In A Cage said...

Easy big feller.

She's thinking big picture & WS I believe.

3 more wins here & 4 in the WS.

Rat In A Cage said...


The Sox just won to take a 3-1 gamers lead, and three complete games from the pitchers. Awesome!

Party time, baby!!

My dad was watching the Houston/St Louis game earlier today and I sat and watched a bit of it and I asked him if he likes the White Sox and he said "no.". I was like "why not?" and he said "I'm a cubs fan and I have been since I was a kid..." I'm sure you know the rest. The point is it made me think of you which is always something I welcome! I blogged so read it. Gosh. I hope you had a good time on the southside! Talk to you later.
