I'll pick the Red Soxs and the Marlins to win. Haven't yet figured out what score it will be.

Always Thinking

Cowboy Up is something that the deer urine bat soaker Kevin Millar came up with. It basically means that they are grinders. If you are hurt, not feeling well, you have to "Cowboy Up". All in all, he is comparing the team to a bunch of cowboys. Personally, I find it pretty lame and the homoerotic overtones are astonishing.

Anyway, I think the Sox pull this one out but go on to lose the series in six games. The Cubs should win as well since I think Matt Clement is going to do well against his old team.

I guess it's too late for the red sox game, but I'll take the Cubs 8 to 5.

I think both pitchers may be getting hit well, but I think the cubs will get to dontrell willis just like San Francisco did.

i always wondered what the meaning was behind those t-shirts "the time is now....so cowboy up" and why the Red Sox play that Ryan Reynolds song of the same name

And the other night yuo mentioned the phrase during the A's game and then this morning i saw a 'Cowboy Up' bumper sticker and i thought wtf??

thax for the info Steam

Yep.

At least I was right on one thing. Sorry Dontrelle. Might as well say fuck it at this point and get the Tommy John surgery over and done with.
