Default goes to show you ...

... how closely i follow the minors.

my wife and i went down to frederick md over the weekend to visit our daughter and for a little fun on saturday night she took us to see some fireworks. well, the fireworks happen to be after a baseball game at keys stadium, home of the frederick keys, a baltimore affiliate. we got there just after the 5th inning started so we were able to just walk in sit down and watch the rest of the game so we could enjoy the fireworks display after. the game happened to be tied 1 - 1 and i found myself just rooting along with the crowd and pulling for a home win so we'd get to the fireworks action a little sooner. as it happened, the keys scored twice more on home runs to win. we then watched the show and everyone went home happy (it was a very good display btw).

only this morning did i discover the team i was rooting against was, in fact, the sox minor league team winston-salem!

SHEESH!

There has to be some kind of penalty for that! 50 lashes...... 2 weeks without a beer...... no Sox on TV for a week...... no sex for a month......

Not sure what is appropriate, but something should be done!
