The Oaks Ignore Their Pleas

Garbage Time for the Red Sox?

Posted in baseball by Jeff Graves on September 15, 2006

OK, I know the Red Sox are 10 games behind the Yankees in the American League East standings as of this morning, but the clearest sign yet that the 2006 campaign is over for the Carmine Hose came in the top of the 3rd inning of this evening’s contest against the Baltimore Orioles.  Announcers Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy spent the majority of the Boston at-bat arguing over the ingredients that go into Brigham’s Reverse the Curse ice cream.  Apparently, the action on the field wasn’t compelling enough to warrant any attention.  (Come to think of it, the Sox didn’t score, and nothing really exciting did happen).  Even so, I don’t think you would have heard that conversation during a mid-September game in 2004.

BTW, in case you were wondering, Brigham’s website reports that “Curse Reversed” ice cream contains “ Brigham’s delicious vanilla ice cream and is loaded with chocolate covered peanuts, chocolate covered caramel cups and swirls of Brigham’s fudge sauce.  That actually sounds pretty good…
