Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

June 30, 2009 | Glenn Clark

How would you respond to a friend who called you to say “Hey man, I have a ticket to Wednesday’s game; do you want to go?”

I mean, you might see exciting things like Adam Jones’ UNBELIEVABLE catch last night; but you’ll be hanging out with something like 30,000 Red Sox fans all night.

I’ll probably still go, but I already know I’m going to have a miserable time.

Of course, it is baseball; so it’s not like it would be thrilling anyway. At least I can yell at some Patriots fans.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say…..

SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:

-You have to get the feeling that this Michael Oher movie isn’t the most popular thing in the world of Michael Oher. I think that everyone who knew him at Ole Miss is excited for the opportunity to honor a kid they fell in love with for four years; but to have your life recognized on film when you are really just beginning it still seems to me to be more of a burden than anything. How will Oher’s teammates look at him when they turn on their TV’s and see trailer after trailer for a flick about a rookie?

Talk to you tomorrow.
