Dedication #11: The enemy, Suppuko, Red Sox

How devoted am I to the SOA/VC cause? Just look below. There is not one person in the other coalitions who has sacrificed as much as I just did. Smash doesn't count because he risked his life in Iraq before this whole challenge.

Do you know what it is like for a life long Yankees fan/Red Sox hater to wear the emblem of the dreaded enemy? It's like killing just a little piece of yourself. If I were a samurai, I'd be all about the seppuko, driving the blade in my stomach to the hilt right now. Good thing I'm not a samurai, eh?

I did this with my head held high, though. It was all in the name of a noble cause.

I will keep telling myself that.

Forgive me, Thurman Munson.

I need to shower with steel wool now.

Good lord, you've got guts.

No one will mistake you for a real Sox fan from this photo. If you were a real Sox fan, you'd be waving a broom around right now. OH YEAH.

Gracious - between your son playing, and you making that hat look lovely by association, what a fine multi-media blog!

I am so not believing you guys were looking at her hat! ;)

Nice.... hat

errrrr

got a rack for that hat?

What hat? ohhh, yeah. hat.

Talk about taking one for the team. Greater love hath no Yankees fan...

Such Spirit
Such Patriotism
Such BOOBS

MICHELE you are
Like a Hurricane

damn. you DO have gorgeous cleavage.

The Constitution will be sailing into Long Island Sound tomorrow to present the terms of surrender to Lord Steinbrenner. I think that you wearing the hat is probably what inspired Pedro and Manny today. Good work!

If you did shower with steel wool that would probably be one more shower than Thurman Munson ever took in his life. He was one hygenically challenged dude (unlike Carlton Fisk who was in soap commercials).

WUSSIIIIIIIIIEEEEEE!

Michele's wussing out! :-P Is this pic a fraud? No face = no deal. :-(

C'mon, 'Chele, you haven't really humiliated yourself unless the Sox pic includes a clear shot of your face, preferably with a faux goofy 'We just swept the friggin' YANKS!' Sox-fan grin on your face. Make it perfect by adding an emphatic thumbs-up (no, no middle fingers!) too.

Only then will we know you're truly willing to take one high and inside for the SOA/VC cause.
:-)

Nice cleavage...now what's all this about a hat? Where?

Clark, you want that stuff, you have to donate a decent amount to SOA.

This post was for those who donated specifically to see me in a Sox cap - no one said anything about looking happy about it.

"Only then will we know you're truly willing to take one high and inside for the SOA/VC cause."

Smiley face notwithstanding, bite me.

N-N-N-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O!!!

sob

Nice hat.
Nicer hatrack.

J.

As one of those Sox donors, thank you. Joe is delirious with delight. Me, I'm just astonished - I don't think any amount of donations could get me into an Oregon State cap. You're a stronger woman than I.

The "B" stands for what again?

(Sorry Michele, just playing along.)

Michele,

This post was for those who donated specifically to see me in a Sox cap - no one said anything about looking happy about it.

Even a pouty face (with or without mascara streaks) would be fine, but a pic advertised as 'Michele-in-Sox-cap' without Michele's face, well ... it ... disappoints.
:-(...

Smiley face notwithstanding, bite me.

Aw, 'Chele, you know I'd never really question your commitment to 'the cause.'

No hard feelings, K? For the record--Ya Rock! Anyway, you're maybe the most decent person I know that likes the Yankees.

I know what I hate. The Yankees I hate, but you in that hat, and Britney in a Yankees jersey, that I don't hate.

It's not just April anymore when you're 6 and 1 versus the Evil Empire! How on earth are the Yankees going to win 9 out of the next 12 to win this series?

Seriously Michelle, how much would I have to donate to get you to say: "Georgie Porgie, he might buy the whole league, but he doesn't have enough money to buy fear to put in my heart."

What i wonder, is why did she have a Sox cap just, laying around? Closet Sawx fan are ye ? Hmmmmmmm.

there's a Sox hat in that picture?

What's that caption on the picture about horribly large size???? {gdr}

You certainly are a sport, Michele.
Run out alll of your ground balls.
Some of them just might be winners.
Bravo.

"The "B" stands for what again?"

Beautiful.

And breasts, okay.

I can't believe it! You have great boobs! Tricker!

I would proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with you!

The B could stand for the curse of the BAMBINO. Or the Sawx are the Yankees BEEYOTCH.

We'll see who is yucking it up in October Sawx fans...as per usual.

Despite the hat Michele is the haWt.

Best. Photo. Ever.

I tried clicking "for horribly large size," but all it did was make the picture bigger.

(BTW, Wonkette has nothing on you.)

I was about to make a joke that "Steel wool" was your nickname for your husband, but I'll let that one pass.

Outstanding.

And it's a Seventies-era Sox hat! Carlton Fisk style!

Michele, that is one of the funniest (and most gratifying) images I have ever seen in my life.

You are truly courageous. Ha!

First the wine rack behind your son and now your own? Jeez, I've heard of working a meme, but c'mon!

Boooo!

That ain't a legit Sox bicentennial cap. Looks more like a Nascar lid or a gas station giveaway cap than something Yaz of Fisk would have worn.

I feel slighted.

music to view by:
you can leave your hat on

(link will die soon)

If you were REALLY courageous, you'd wear a Cubs hat.

I must be lost... by the pic, lovely though it might be, I'm guessing I got sitejacked to OliverWillis?

Michelle,
I think you will absolutely hate our website, so have a look.
