SHUT OFF, NOT SHUT IN:

Big Night for Drew Brothers (Steve Henson, July 18, 2006, LA Times)

Want to become a top draft pick? Turn off the television.

That's advice from the Drew brothers, the only family with three siblings drafted in the first round.

The oldest, J.D., played on the same field as his youngest brother, Stephen, for the first time in an organized game Monday. Middle brother Tim, a pitcher rehabilitating a shoulder injury, will join their parents in the stands tonight.

They'll watch a ballgame. Just not on television.

"We didn't have cable until I was 18, and we rarely watched any TV," J.D. said. "We played sports and spent our time outdoors."


So did the Brothers Judd, but, until they start a Professional Kick-the-Can League, the skills we developed don't seem to be in demand.

"Kick The Can" That's what we were all chanting while filing out of Game 6!

Worked. Tricked the Sox into starting the ofay instead.

Are you on Lexis/Nexis? Can you find an article by ANY Boston sportswriter who went on the record before Game 7 as saying the Sox were making a huge mistake by starting Hurst?

Matt:

Writers? The Can said it.

Kick the Can - soon to be an Olympic Sport.
