Today’s recipe: Gatorade, greasy food, Advil, Gatorade (repeat as necessary)
Here’s a fun little Front Office tidbit for you: Did you know that an email gets sent out the day after wins like last night to let folks know that Gatorade has been placed in the breakroom? True story. Many thanks to Paul for coming through again today.
Now then…where do we begin on last nights game? I could tell you about how I was roaming through the park last night (in the sixth inning) and overheard a fan ask an usher where he goes to get his money refunded. The fan subsequently left the ballpark.
I could tell you about how unnamed Front Office employees were packing up their desks (because we have to be moved during offseason renovations).
I could tell you how one member of the Front Office went around telling everybody that we had no chance of winning because it was his birthday, and the Sox haven’t won on his birthday since 1999. By the way, Bill Simmons has a great article about last night’s game as it relates to the fateful October 16 date. Great read.
But in the end, the unnamed Front Office employees had to take everything out of their boxes, the poor birthday boy finally had something to celebrate (even though by the time the Sox won it was actually October 17), and well, that guy who wanted his refund probably wants to build a time machine, travel back to last night and slap himslef in the face.
In any event, people are pretty sluggish in the Front Office today, but happily so.
Can’t wait for tomorrow night!!!
All the best from inside the Front Office!

PPPS – We’re in the second week of a very intense Front Office Biggest Loser competition. Not an ideal time for this for obvious reasons…
