Wake Me Up For Spring Training

Happy Groundhog’s Day! Unfortunately the famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, saw his shadow this morning in Pennsylvania and as a result, it is predicted that there will be six more weeks of winter this year.
For the Red Sox though, spring is just a little bit closer.  Spring Training is less than three weeks away and players and fans, alike, are starting to come out of hibernation in anticipation of the 2010 baseball season. There is one person who never went into hybernation this off-season: Red Sox General Manager, Theo Epstein. Instead, he was too busy making big deals that brought John Lackey, Mike Cameron, Marco Scutaro, Adrian Beltre, and Joe Nelson to Boston. Epstein is also not fazed by Phil’s prediction that there will be six more weeks of winter. Epstein told a select group of Sox fans at a recent luncheon at Fenway Park, “The best way to get excited about Spring Training is to have a snow storm and have it freezing outside… Yeah, we’re definitely ready to get down there.” Like Theo Epstein, I too, have spring fever. However, I do not need anymore snow to get excited about Spring Training.
Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report to Fort Myers, FL for Spring Training on February 19th and position players are scheduled to report down south on February 23rd.
 So until then, I am going back into hibernation. Just make sure to wake me up for Spring Training… http://www.chowdaheadz.com/slogan-of-the-day.html

Boston Red Sox Faces

With spring training right around the corner, familiar faces from our favorite ball club have been popping up in the news in anticipation of the 2010 baseball season. Talks about the roles for individual players have surfaced including expectations for Jonathon Papelbon, Tim Wakefield,  Jacoby Ellsbury, and David Ortiz – just to name a few. The focus this past offseason though, hasn’t so much been on the old faces of the team but rather on the new ones: Adrian Beltre, Mike Cameron, Jeremy Hermida, and former Los Angeles Angeles ace, John Lackey.

There is one more new face to the Boston Red Sox family that you may not have heard of this off-season. It is your official Boston Red Sox Forest Face. Just nail it to a tree and make it come to life as a Red Sox fan. Let everyone who drives by your house know that you are a diehard Sox fan with one these. Or simply start the new trend on the block. Each Boston Red Sox Forest Face measures 12” x 7” and wears the team cap with the official team logo. Each piece is made of weather resistant resin and has a durable hook for hanging. Remember, your Red Sox Forest Face will only be as passionate about the Sox as you are!

Charlies Item of The Week

It was tough to choose a wicked pissah item of the week and then I woke up to a bunch of snow here in Boston today so fittingly I chose the Red Sox Snowflake Ornament. It is usually $9.99 but for a week it will be just $5.00! Now that is “Wicked Pissah”
