In honor of yet another dreary, rainy day here in Boston, and because the Red Sox have the day off today and we all need to get our daily Red Sox fix somehow, here is a video from the 2008 season. If you haven't seen it before, it is a re-make of Milli Vanilli's "Blame it on the Rain" performed by Red Sox Closer Jonathan Papelbon and hometown favorite relief pitcher, Manny Delcarmen. This video was shown on the huge television in center field at Fenway during a rain delay between the Sox and the Cardinals last season and became a rain delay tradition for the remainder of the season. Funny video, yet another reason why I love the Red Sox.
Today was a pretty uneventful one for me. I woke up at 5am because my best friend, Sean, needed a ride to Logan airport. I have gotten the chance to see Sean a lot so far this summer, which has been awesome. Sean, along with many of my other friends from high school, have been around the city this summer and it has been nice to get to see all of them on a regular basis now that we all have four years of college in different places under our belts. I'm sure we will continue to hang out this summer and I can't wait for all of the funny new stories and experiences that we will share together.
One thing I have my mind set on this summer is to go on a road trip. I don't have a particular destination in mind, but I really want to just get in the car with some friends and head out to do some exploring. If any of you have gone on a road trip before, please contact me and give me some ideas for places to venture to. Road trip destinations and stories are both welcome, and if I get a good response I will post some of the stories here on the blog for everyone else to read (you can remain anonymous if you would like!)
I did hear some good news today coming from the "make some money" front. Starting immediately I am going to be promoting parties for NoNameNightlife/Top Shelf Entertainment. The first party that I will be promoting is taking place this Friday night at Hurricane O'Reilly's. Hurricane O'Reilly's is located on Canal St, a stone's throw away from the TD Banknorth Garden and a short walk from Faneuil Hall. The cover to get in is $10, but if you contact me before Friday night, I can put you on my guest list and you will be able to get in for $5 before 11:30. The best part about the job is that once I submit my guest list for the night, I am free to party and hang out with whoever shows up, so it's a win-win for everyone! More details are sure to come and I will keep updating this post as I get them, please don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested in attending so I can get your name on the list.
One addition that I would really like to make to my blog is more dialogue between both myself and the readers as well between readers. What better way to stimulate some conversation than a "Would You Rather" question?! Please, vote in the poll and add a comment to this post defending why you chose the option you did. Vote on today's question using the poll located on the right hand side of the blog!
Lastly, here are some good tracks that I have been playing a good deal for the past few days:
Black Eyed Peas- I Gotta Feeling
Rick Ross feat. The Dream- All I Really Want
The Alchemist- Hold You Down
Until next time...
