Thank you, Lord!

Well, well, I figured I'd have to write before crashing this evening.  The Neanderthals called The Boston Red Sox are not going to the World Series.  They lost in Tampa Bay tonight and the world, as much as it is spinning out of control in many ways, now feels a little bit better.  I am so happy to not have to hear Boston fans sing, "So Good! So good! So Good" for many months.  Now all that Tampa Bay needs to do is get a new logo for their hat.  Since they have already removed the devil from the ray, why not just drop that "B" and become the Tampa Rays.  At least then their letter logo wouldn't be representative of a highly infectious disease.  And, by the way, looking at their mascot, you gotta ask, what exactly is that?

I haven't felt this good since October of 2005...which is a little sad to admit.

That's Raymond, of course.

Dorkiest thing ever, from TB site:

"In early 1998, Rays scouts on a fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico spotted a strange looking animal. The creature, apparently drawn to the boat by the smell of hotdogs on the hibachi, climbed aboard and soon won the scouts over with his silly antics. During the excitement, a scout had a brilliant idea: make this fun loving fuzz ball the mascot for the new baseball team. "Raymond" as the scouts dubbed him, immediately accepted their contract offer of all the hotdogs he could eat, all the high fives he could handle, and the ability to shake his groove thing to countless Tampa Bay fans.

Raymond's animal-like appearance causes confusion among fans of all ages. His fuzzy face is similar to a walrus and his bulbous blue belly likens him to a mutant manatee. So what exactly is he?

In 2005 marine biologists and zoologists made a startling discovery; Raymond is actually a previously undiscovered species of dog known as "Canus Manta Whatthefluffalus" or in layman's terms, a Seadog. Seadogs have all the traits of normal dogs. They enjoy going for walks, playing with kids, and fetching. Unlike other dogs they are five to six feet tall, walk upright, are blue in color, and chase catfish. While other dogs live on land, Seadogs usually live in or around the water. Seadogs are well known for their fun-loving nature, passion for baseball, and general good looks."
