Red Sox Fans: Are You Covering The Bases?

Who's familar with Bronson Arroyo on the Red Sox, and how he's releasing a new cd?

I'll start off by saying he's got a good voice, and I heard him play a couple songs live on the radio and he sounded pretty good. Not saying he sucks.

Here's what I find funny though: the media, radio, newspapers, and local tv, are absolutely blowing this guy like he's the next Led Zeppelin. During interviews, they keep asking him questions like "what do you think of yourself more as, a baseball player, or a musician?" or "wow, it's so amazing you're releasing a cd AND playing baseball!" Uh, yes, he's a much better musician than PRO baseball player because he can cover songs...stupid.

If you're from Boston and follow the Sox you know what I'm talking about. If you're not from here, you obviously don't hear the constant attention on the cd.

People...it's just f'n COVER SONGS! There's ONE reason this guy was able to release this cd: he's got the money to do it. He hired some very legit musicians to play on the album(including Mike Inez from Alice and Chains), and put it together in the studio. You could walk through Cambridge on any given night and find 20 people who are 10X the "musician" he is.

I will just leave you with this: he plays the Goo Goo Dolls on the cd. And Creed is in his top ten albums of all time.

Find any sports event. Click open the channel guide, pick theme, one of the channels will be the game.

I think I will go try this myself.

Kicky, you will never believe what I am doing now on a daily basis.

I've started running again. It's the funniest thing people have ever seen on the streets of New York, this huge fat guy huffing along (I walk a twenty minute mile, I run a fifteen minute mile--- what a streak) Anyway, I'm up to about 5 miles one day, and two the next, with a one day rest every five days. Lost about six pounds so far.

dat's all.

Oh, thank god. I thought you were going to tell me you were doing something bad for you. It's good to know I'm still the most self-destructive member of A2K.

Keep it up, man.

P.S. Do you remember a guy named Jim Fixx? Big-time jogger. Had a heart attack WHILE running and died on the spot.

Just thought you might want to know the dangers.

He was a hero of mine back in the 70's. I was soccer ref then and reading Fixx's book, brilliantly titled RUNNING, taught me a lot about the way to jog, walk, run, jog, sprint, have fun, run. Players in the Oklahoma heat couldn't figure out how I could run for 90 minutes, but I was doing practice sessions for twice that long and then going for a ride on my bike.
(I never heard of a triathalon until I was over 30)

Still tied. Some guy is bowling from the mound.

Haha! Good luck with the health kick. I'll double my intake of alcohol and cheese to even things out.

I love this Yankees/Bosox rivalry. Fun stuff.

I have been watching this arroyo bull, sort of. I Came to the same conclusion (must be ok, but he's making it work with pro-baseball cash). But, I tell ya, the sappy eyebrow emotion in his pix makes me want to slap him.
