Day 3207: Sports

Two notable and different sports events happened yesterday in Boston: (1) The Boston Marathon (usually held in April) and (2) the Red Sox, against all odds, defeating the Tampa Bay Rays to advance in the American baseball playoffs. Here’s some reporting from ESPN about the unlikely Red Sox win:

I never played sports because of my heart condition, but as somebody once said, “If you can’t play a sport, be a sport.” Can you see sports in my images for today, many of which I took while going for a three-hour walk yesterday?

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “sports”:

Be a sport and leave a comment, okay?

If gathering and expressing gratitude were a sport, I’d be an elite athlete!

    I had the privilege of attending that Red Sox game. So much tension but so great!

  2. I’d suggest taking water resistant footwear with good soles.
    I’m thinking of getting that book for my brother. Would love to know what you think of it.
    I just finished Deborah Copaken’s Ladyparts — and recommend it.

    Bring warm thoughts on your walk today 🙂

  4. Several years ago I was in Florida visiting my parents and we went to see a Tampa Bay Rays game and they happened to play the Red Sox. I feel a little guilty for saying I was glad to be there to see the Rays win that particular game, but if I were to go to a game in Boston I’d cheer for the Red Sox because I like baseball and always root for the home team. If they don’t win it’s a shame.
    And speaking of home teams here’s the native Tennessean Mike Massey who’s always a good sport.

  5. Your Royal Highness Harley and Princess Joan posing for a family portrait. Joan, amber princess, Ladyship of Boston shore and ‘good sport’.

  6. carry your celebratory heart around with you

  7. I will be rooting for your Red Sox against the dreaded Houston Astros, Ann, listening for a garbage lid beat or some other such sign of illicit sign stealing … I can’t forget or forgive that transgression against my-still-favorite sport.

  8. Nice post. Following now 👍🏻
