Since the Sox have checked out early, in fact, before Memorial Day, lets review things we can actually look forward to this summer while the Sox sit on the back burner:
Ironman 2 - I'm a big fan of movies, and sometimes bordering on movie "snob". While far from meeting the standards of the first one, it was extremely well done, and I highly recommend seeing it in IMAX. Plus, Scarlett Johansson.
World Cup Soccer - Soccer is awful. But its hard to dismiss what amazing athletes soccer players are, and how intriguing the game becomes when put on the world stage with intense patriotism involved. In bandwagon fashion, I'll be watching.
Toy Story 3 - Pixar. Summer. Blockbuster. Ingredients for success.
Sam Summer - The always reliable summer beer of choice.
The High Life - a close second.
More Twitter posts - ... from Lebron's elbow.
The Celtics landing Lebron and/or Dwayne Wade - kidding. I've had too much beer.
Go enjoy the summer, kids.
