Friday Clutter

Hi everyone, Come on in, I was just making some coffee. Happy Friday to you all. Congratulations on making it through another week. What's the plan for the weekend? It's shaping up to be a rough little stretch here at Clutter Headquarters. BDH spent most of last night pouting because there wasn't a Red Sox game to watch, and now it looks like I'm going to have to talk to him about the future of Terry Francona. That's not going to be fun, but we'll get through it somehow. Okay, the coffee's ready. Help yourself to a cup and let's... Read more →


Dark Day Clutter

Hi everyone, Come on in. It's a dark day at Clutter Headquarters. Literally a dark day with the clouds outside. The gloomy weather seems fitting following a Red Sox loss that would have made their pre-2004 predecessors proud. That was horrible enough, but what was just as bad was having to explain to BDH what just happened, this being his first baseball season and all. As soon as the game was over, he said, "Well, we'll just play again tomorrow, right?" He had such hope in his eyes and an innocent smile on his face, it was heart-breaking to explain... Read more →


Wednesday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back for another round of random. BDH and Little Buddha just woke up, and the coffee is ready, so help yourself, and let's see what's going on in the world today. With Jason Varitek (knee) and Jarrod Saltalamacchia (collarbone) banged up, the Red Sox asked 24 year old rookie Ryan Lavarnway to make his first start as a major league catcher in an absolute must-win game for Boston. No pressure or anything, right? Well, the kid stepped up big time, hitting the first two home runs of his career (driving in four runs) as the Red Sox... Read more →


Tuesday Clutter

Hey everyone, Come on in. How are you? The Sox have me a little grouchy, and I'm tired, which never helps, but now that you're here, we'll have some coffee, clear out a little Clutter, and I'm sure the rest of the day will pick up from there, so let's get started! The Red Sox are now tied for the wild card after losing 6-3 to the Baltimore Orioles last night. Erik Bedard takes the mound tonight, Jon Lester will come back on short rest to pitch the final game of the regular season on Wednesday, and then if the... Read more →


Monday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in. I was just making some coffee. I'm probably going to need multiple pots today, but I'll share with you. I had a busy Sunday that started with getting up at 6:00 am to help Dad Clutter park cars for the NASCAR race in New Hampshire, and the day ended about 18 hours later with the Red Sox game. My eyes are puffy, and my feet and back are sore, but I'd say it was worth it. Now it's time to focus and clear out some Clutter. Here we go... The Red Sox split... Read more →


Bus Clutter

Hi everyone, We're taking Clutter on the road again, this time all the way to the vast wilderness that is New Hampshire. There's a NASCAR race this weekend, and I'm helping Dad Clutter park cars on his property again. That means I have get up around 6am tomorrow, and you know how much I love getting up early in the morning. Thankfully I will get to have some coffee before I have to deal with anyone, and it's all for a very good cause, which in this case is me getting paid. Anyway, our last edition of "Clutter on the...

Saturday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back to the house of the random. How are you? What's the plan for today? It seems like it's not quite as dreary as predicted, so that's a good start. BDH and Little Buddha are still sleeping, so I had to make the coffee. Is it strong enough? I can make you another cup if you want, and then we can clear out some Saturday Clutter. Congratulations to the Texas Rangers on clinching the American League West division title last night. With Texas taking the West, the Detroit Tigers taking the Central, and the Yankees taking the...

Friday Clutter

Hi everyone, Come on in, come on in. Happy Friday! It is Friday, right? Why does it seem like this week took a month to get through? What are your plans for the weekend? I'm sorry we couldn't hang out yesterday, but grab yourself a medium DD, and let's clear out the Friday Clutter. The Red Sox didn't play last night, but the Rays split a doubleheader against the Yankees, and the Angels lost their game, so Boston goes into the final six games of the year with a two game lead over Tampa Bay and three games over Los...

Thursday Morning Jukebox

Hi everyone, Unfortunately, the real world prevents me from going through today's headlines with you this morning. You know I'd do it if I could, but someone has to pay the bills, and BDH and Little Buddha are still learning how to type. So, in the meantime, enjoy today's selection from the Clutter Jukebox while I'm off delivering newspapers. It sounds like Series 2 of the BBC's Sherlock now won't be airing until some time in early 2012. That's a shame, because they're wonderfully written stories, and they feature the man with the best name of all actors, Mr. Benedict... Read more →


Wednesday Clutter

Hi everyone, Come on in. Welcome back. Sorry I'm moving a little slowly today. I woke up with a massive headache, and now I'm waiting for the Advil to kick in. So, we may need to be a little quiet this morning, but grab a DD, and let's see if we can still clear out some Clutter. The bad news is that the Red Sox lost 7-5 to the Baltimore Orioles last night. The good news is that the Tampa Bay Rays also lost against the New York Yankees, so we are still the wild card leaders by two games... Read more →
