Welcome back. How are you? How's your weekend going so far? I had a blast "on the road" yesterday. I could have done without the limited/non-existent vision at a few points, thanks to the rain, but it was great to revisit my old stomping grounds and see my friends Ben and Brian. We'll probably cover that in more detail later, though. For now, help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out a little Sunday Clutter.
The Boston Red Sox seemed determined to lose a heart-breaker to the New York Yankees after coughing up a 6-1 lead yesterday. However, everything turned out okay, thanks to a 9th inning RBI triple by Mr. Clutch, Pedro Ciriaco, that drove in the go-ahead run, and Boston ended up winning 8-6. What was particularly nice to see (or at least hear on the car radio) was that Jon Lester had a fairly solid performance, giving up the 4 runs on 4 hits, with 6 strikeouts in 6 innings. Hopefully this means he's starting to get back on track. Felix Doubront will take the mound tonight as the Sox try to take 2 out of 3 from New York.
The Carl Crawford drama continues. Bobby Valentine said he was following the team's medical staff's orders by giving Crawford a day off after playing four consecutive games. The problem, if that's true, is that no one bothered to tell Crawford that was the plan. Does anyone talk to anyone on this team? I know the players union would never allow it to happen, but do you think Crawford would take a pay cut just to get out of Boston if he could?

The Mitt Romney campaign, trying to salvage his disastrous trip abroad, tried to put on their best hawkish face by indicating the candidate would support a pre-emptive attack on Iran by Israel.
Rep. Michele Bachmann's baseless accusations about one of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's longtime aides having terrorist ties were so outlandish, that even House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) distanced himself from them as fast as he could. However, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Virginia) is standing by Bachmann.

WWE wrestler, "The Great Khali," had the tumor removed that caused his immense size. Khali is 7-1, 347 lbs, and he suffers from the same condition that Andre the Giant endured during his lifetime. Khali certainly made some money, thanks to his acromegaly, but it can also cause all sorts of health problems, so good for him for finally having it addressed.

Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. I think we'll let the Foo Fighters close things out with, These Days, for today's, "Song of the Day." One of these days, we're going to have a Clutterhead Happy Hour. Doesn't that sound like fun? Sorry, getting off topic. Enjoy the song:
Thanks for stopping by, everyone. It was great to see you, as always, and we hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday. I'm going to do a grocery shopping this afternoon, so we'll have plenty of snacks and beer if you want to come over to watch the Red Sox - Yankees tonight. Otherwise, come back soon, and we'll have some more fun. Until next time, that's today's Clutter, and like the wise man said, we are outta here.
