Grace in Small Things 204:365

1. being able to wear jeans & a Sox tee to work on Friday because we have a very casual office environment.

2. Alex Gonzalez is coming back to the Red Sox!! if you've been reading here for more than ten minutes, you should know by now that i am a sucker for flawless defense in baseball, more than any other aspect of the game. back in 2006, the Sox had Alex as their short stop. not much of a force to be reckoned with at the plate, but *man* could he field a ball. our infield that season (Youk, Mark Loretta, Alex & Mike Lowell) was about the most beautiful thing i'd ever witnessed. i guess you could call AGon the anti-Lugo. it's going to be good to have him back in the fold, to most likely platoon with Nick Green.

3. closing my eyes & having a memory so vivid that i feel like i'm actually *there*. so much so, that when i snap back to reality & realize i'm not, it's almost a shock.

4. singing along to "Her Eyes" (Pat Monahan) in the car on the way home.

5. a ninth-inning come-from-behind win for the Sox in Texas!! it's been so long since they pulled that off and damn it felt good!!

That game last night was both awesome and ulcer inducing at the same time.

But what a flipping win.

Ted: It was good that one finally went *our* way. I feel like we've been on the other end a few too many times this season. In fact, I can't recall the last awesome rally from our boys before this one!
