I am writing this as I get ready for the Red Sox - Seattle game which starts just after 10pm and will probably go into the 1 am hour. And even longer if extra innings develop. I used to love the Red Sox playing out west because I had the TV to myself and there was no other competing television show to worry about except maybe the news at 11pm.

The last couple of years I don't believe I've seen the 9th inning of any of these game that have started at 10pm. Okay, that's a partial lie as I stayed up the whole way through the first game in Anaheim back on Friday night to see Boston win. Will I stay up until the end tonight? Probably not but to help the situation I am about to head out to Cumby's or someplace for a large coffee. "Buenos noches amigos."
