I received the JU-JU rallying cry this morning to continue doing exactly what we have been doing to continue the win streak. And we all know that this is not a request, not a suggestion, but a command.
Last night, as I watched the Yanks, I was enjoying cocktails laced primarily with ice, crown royal, a twist of lemon and a splash of seltzer. I had sautéed some raw cashews in hot oil and sea salt spiked with the infamous, " ghost chili pepper."
Needless to say, between the yanks success, the cashews and the cocktails, I was in fine spirits. The thing is, in a high scoring game, one can consume a lot of salty nuts in nine innings. And with the added spice of that spiked sea salt, I needed to drink a lot of cold liquid. So, 3/4 of a bottle later ( I maintain that a fifth is no longer a fifth), I found myself feeling zero pain, but needing a lot of rest.
Today, I am moving slowly and cautiously. The prospect of repeating the same ritual tonight present a huge dilemma;
Do I begin drinking with YES's batting practice coverage at 6pm, or wait until the first pitch?
