Chrissy and JD begin their journey:
The return of Chrissy and JD:
Tuesday, November 28, 2006
Me and Chrissy had a great time this Thanksgiving. We did a good bit of traveling as well. We drove to Jacksonville on Tuesday.
We went to Gainesville on Wednesday (Chrissy's future home?). It was freezing. I don't remember it ever being that cold.
Got to go to the swamp and the O-dome. Do you see what it says on top of the O-dome?
Went to Orange Park, Florida to visit friends Wednesday night.
Spent time with the family for Thanksgiving. Did a little fishin.
Went to St. Augustine on Friday. Chrissy rode a donkey for her first and probably her last time; more to come when I figure out how to download video to blogger.
Saw the Christmas tree lighting on the river in Jacksonville with some friends.
I'll write about Saturday and Sunday later. They are both worthy of their own blog.
Fun times, but I'm glad to be home

1. As I said before, the Yankees can't get him.
2. Some say that Japan is the new Dominican Republic (Look at the best players in the game today, and see how many are from the Dominican). It might be a big market in the future.
3. He was lights out in the World Baseball Classic. He's already prooven he can be clutch without throwing an MLB pitch.
I think it might be a bit much to pay for him, but maybe it will work out. I wouldn't say the Sox have made the best moves in the last few years. Beckett hasn't met expectations. They traded Hanley Ramirez (a potential allstar). I'm starting to wonder if the 04 Series was just fate, not front office intelligence.
Things to look forward too: Schilling is still there, Papelbon should be a starter, we still have a guy named Wily Mo. Only 5 more months until baseball season starts again.
Until then, Go Pats, Go Jags, Go Gators, and as always, GO SOX!!!
