Red Sox Sweep and I, yeah, whatever…


As most of you know, I recently made a bet with Julia of Julia’s Rants.  The event of the three game Yankees-Red Sox series at Fenway Park from April 24th through April 26th.  The drama was heightened by Julia’s birthday which fell on Saturday, April 25th. 

At stake?  A pink hat of the opposing team for the loser.  I have previously made fun of Julia’s passion for pink hats, and honestly never thought I’d be anywhere near one myself. 

Unfortunately, the Yankees were a no-show that dreadful April weekend in Boston, and the Red Sox walked away…easily…with a three-game sweep.  Julia had a terrific weekend, and I was left to wonder why the Yankees failed to show. 

So, it has come time to settle my debt with Julia. 

Enter the land of pink Red Sox hats…




First up, my Yankees bear, Lou, had to serve his penalty since Julia was gracious enough to include a pink hat for him too…




Notice how Lou was trying to recreate Julia’s Blog Profile Photo.  Next, he took some Red Sox lessons from Wally the Green Monster, using a Red Sox book that Julia included…




The fun just keeps continuing (lucky me).  Wally decided that we needed to do a group photo…




What can I say?  The Yankees failed to come through for me that dreadful April weekend…




But I will live to see another day, and the Yankees will resume their rivalry against the Red Sox in June.  Yes, Julia, I am ready for the next round so get ready!  The Yankees will be back!

But, meanwhile, one final photo and the debt is PAID IN FULL!




Okay, that wasn’t fun…

NOTE TO DEREK JETER & COMPANY:  Don’t let it happen again!  🙂

    Glad you’re the one wearing a pink hat and not me! (seriously, you look better in pink that I ever could!)
    Hope Wally did a good job at helping Lou learn about the competition more. Ready for your next go round in June?

    As an exiled Yankee fan (moved up here to Boston in 1975), it has been very difficult since that cold October evening in 2004.

    Aww, love the hat!!! And love Lou’s as well!!! Just wait till the next series. I already gave Julia an idea. Oh, by the way, Boston’s leading the series, 5-0…just to let you know!!! And youare actually smiling in the pictures? Wow, some Yankee fan you are here. Just to let Julia know, she wont have to wear the Texiera shirt because the Yanks will never beat Boston…or sweep them
