Thanks for nothing Mother Nature

Good Morning. I'd like to thank Mother Nature for giving us enough snow to make it a pain to go to work, but not nearly enough snow to close the office. I'd also like to thank her for giving our New York offices enough snow that they are probably going to close early. I'd also like to mention that our Ohio and Kentucky offices closed early yesterday, so thanks for that.

Anyway, not a lot going on today. The B's beat the Oiler's 3-0 last night in "Hail to the Chief" night. Apparently, the Celtics did not play the Bucks last night in Milwaukee, but rather will play them here in Boston, tonight. The lesson there is that you should never take what I have to say about the Celtics to be true.

Down in good old Fort Myers Diasuke Matsuzaka played CATCH yesterday. Wright Thomson, writer for drove 110 from Miami to Fort Myers to watch Dice-K play catch. (scroll down a little in the blog). A good AP story on Lester. My favorite person named WilyMo is going to arbitration on Friday. (because 1.75 million isn't nearly enough to strike out all the time and make pop-ups look difficult).

Also from the Globe:
"Lugo plans to arrive early, perhaps as soon as tomorrow. Lugo will be playing alongside Mike Lowell, who won't be playing next to Alex Gonzalez on a regular basis for the first time since 1999. That's when they began to play together with the Marlins, and both came to Boston last season. Gonzalez signed this winter with the Reds. But while Lowell said it will be an adjustment not to be playing with Gonzalez, he named a different player as the one he'll miss most: Gabe Kapler, who retired as a player at age 31 to become manager of the Sox' Single A team in Greenville, S.C."

I'm going to miss Gabe too. Someday, our paths will cross again Gabe, someday.

Thanks to work Katie (aka, WKatie), we have this pretty funny picture of David getting his grove on (check out the pictures on the right). Chris, you should translate this article and post it in the comments.

From the MFY, Joe is trying to get in touch with Bernie, and Cashman is going to talk to Mo (after his comments that he would sign with another team after 2007)

Peyton Manning tried to keep Super Bowl a "normal" day. "Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning told David Letterman he tried to make Super Bowl Sunday as close to a normal day as possible. Manning, who was a guest Tuesday night on The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS, said that was the advice he got from three Super Bowl alumni -- Hall of Famers John Elway and Troy Aikman and Colts nemesis Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. "And that was the best advice they gave me, was to do whatever you normally do," Manning said. "So I kept my routine as normal as I could so I felt real comfortable all week and the game felt pretty normal to me."

Okay, I don't want to be a jerk here, but Bill left Peyton a message wishing him luck and Tom gave him advice. WTF?
(okay, that ^ is the last time I talk about the Pats till the Combine).
