walking into the death star

Ever since my voluntary reassignment I've been looking for a barber closer to home. Donning my Mets jacket, Mets hat, and watch.. I got in the car and started looking for one. I found one right on main st, of course. I parked the vehicle, walked into the establishment and I'm greeted with a loud "ohhhhh look at this guy, he's a Met fan". Right in front of me was Derek Jeter, a fathead Derek Jeter. I was very nervous..I felt like I had just walked into the Death Star in nothing but my mets underwear. Yes, I have those.

So the first thing I said was; hey I bleed red too (I wasn't walking out of there without a haircut..I needed it..bad!!) The guy that seemed to be the loudest was the owner.. The Mario Batalli look alike. I purposely let other people go in front of me so he wouldn't fuck up my hair.

The less assuming barber waves me over and I ask him if he too was a Yankee fan. He said, it depends on the tip. I knew I could work with this guy. Money talks right? Well, after a few laughs, the nerves disappeared and I knew I had found my new barber. I no longer felt like a caveman. I can't believe what I put my self through for a haircut....I don't even want to think what's going to happen when I go back in two weeks.

Numbers sandwich with tedious sauce

I had a shitty day from the get go this morning. To compound things, I look like the biggest ass to my superiors....I managed to looked like I didn't know what I was doing $(*&#(*$%&. All the minutia, all the tedious numbers, checking and double checking and triple checking... sucks! I can't wait for the week to be over. I can't wait for baseball season to start....The only thing that's keeping me sane is baseball. Is Friday here yet?

Red Sox land low blow

Boston owner grants Yanks' Steinbrenner membership in Red Sox Nation news services

After new Yankees boss Hank Steinbrenner lambasted the notion of Red Sox Nation, Boston principal owner John Henry has offered an olive branch to his American League East rival.
Henry has decided to make Steinbrenner the newest member of Red Sox Nation complete with membership card and certain perks that only members can obtain, according to the Boston Herald.
"I'm a big Hank fan," Henry wrote in an email to the newspaper. "Just to ensure he knows how cool Red Sox Nation is, [Saturday] we officially inducted him as a member of Red Sox Nation and we are sending him his membership card giving him access to an array of options including our newsletter, bumper stickers, pins, Green Monster seats and a hat personally autographed by David Ortiz."

***LMAO***This is great stuff. Keep it coming boys!

"For his part, Hank betrays no worry about the competition in the American League, whether it's the Cleveland Indians, who eliminated the Yankees last year; the Detroit Tigers, who added Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis this winter; or, above all, the Red Sox, who have not only won the World Series twice in the last four years but are arguably becoming a national phenomenon,'' wrote the Boston Globe.
" 'Red Sox Nation?' Hank says. 'What a bunch of [expletive] that is. That was a creation of the Red Sox and ESPN, which is filled with Red Sox fans. Go anywhere in America and you won't see Red Sox hats and jackets, you'll see Yankee hats and jackets. This is a Yankee country. We're going to put the Yankees back on top and restore the universe to order,' " Hank Steinbrenner told the New York Times, Play Magazine
