Outside Prov Squared

"Shields didn't need more than the one run," said the Daily News about the Rays-Yanks game tonight. However, since Shields gave up a run, I beg to differ. If he wanted to actually win, he'd need more than a run. Anyway, he got the second run, and Tamper beat Enwhy 2-1. So we're 2 games up! It's been a while. Good feeling. Love the 2. Yanks play lowly Oakland this weekend, and we get the Mariners, who have the same 43-55 record as the A's, only...they've lost TWELVE in a row. So we should stay even or gain this weekend. But you never can predict baseball, Suzyn.

Saw the movie Outside Providence tonight, outside, in Providence. This is the Farrelly Brothers movie that nobody seems to know about, from 1999. I don't even have any recollection of it coming out at the time, but one Alec Baldwin line about cookies did spark a memory, probably from a clip he brought to Letterman or something. Anyway, aside from the fact that I liked all the Rhode Island stuff (the Connecticut prep school where a lot of the film takes place is actually the URI campus which I'm very familiar with), it was a funny, feel-fairly-good movie. Baldwin delivers some classic lines, and the rest of the cast does a fine job with the blue-collar New England thing. It takes place in the 70s, which is my favorite era, so that was a bonus. And someone I know had a speaking role! When you move to Rhode Island, you very quickly know everyone, without even trying. But I don't think you have to live around here or remember the 70s to like this movie.

With today's off-day. I thought about doing "July 21st In Red Sox Vs. Nobody History." But come on, you really think I'm gonna look up every year the Red Sox had an off-day on July 21st? What are you, an asshole?

1903, 1906, 1912, 1916, 1918, 1938, 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952, 1953, 1958, 1960, 1969, 1981, 1994. Happy?

Doesn't it feel good to win without playing?
