Thanksgiving is over and we are now in the throes of one of my favorite times of year: Christmas season! I’m Jewish, but there’s nothing like some good Christmas music, the giving spirit, and hopefully some snow to put a girl in a good mood.
Unfortunately, December means the hot stove is heating up as well. Yes, I said unfortunately. I love the idea of getting new guys, but I hate seeing guys go, and I hate the rumors that accompany the hot stove. I am very, very attached to my boys. It’s always a bad day for me when someone leaves the Red Sox.
This year, JBayBay (it is imperative to call him that) is a free agent, and though the Red Sox did offer him arbitration, there is a very real possibility he could walk away from this team. It will take a lot of money and a good amount of years to sign JBayBay, and Theo isn’t well known for those types of contracts. Theo has, however, made it clear that JBayBay is his top priority.
See, despite the fact that he’s a Canuck, JBayBay is just a phenomenal human being who has earned a special place in my heart. First of all, his name can be skewed to sound like that Hurricane Chris song A Bay Bay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4tnlRQGyH0). Additionally, he loves hockey, especially the Bruins. Third, he’s a great team player, quiet and productive. Fourth, he’s JBayBay. He can’t leave me. It’s not allowed.
I’m incredibly busy right now with the final two weeks of my fall semester. My mother has made it clear that anything below an A- will be unacceptable. If I had been conscientious enough throughout the semester, this should not have been a problem, but I’m unfortunately a slacker, so I’m racing to catch up in these last seven days of classes. I’m hoping that if I ace my finals, I’ll be able to get As in every one of my classes, but I have to worry about acing them in the first place so it’s going to be great.
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and is doing well. Enjoy the season and people of Boston, cross your fingers for snow!
