Alcohol + Red Sox Fan = Trouble.

I was having a few drinks with a friend of mine who's a die hard Red Sux fan (I know, but otherwise he's okay, i guess).  A few drinks turned into a few more (we work at a wine shop, so the drinks keep on flowing).  Long story short, the infamous debate reaches the point where I get fed up and somehow wind up betting him $1,000 that Don Mattingly would be inducted into the Hall of Fame by 2017.  It's on paper -- hanging in his office.

Mattingly is probably my favorite player of all time -- I was born in 1985, so my entire childhood baseball experience revolved around seeing the great 1st baseman year after year.

That said, I know he won't make the HOF, and I can only hope that he forgets about the bet.

So, to conclude this rant, a word of sagely advice -- don't drink around Red Sox fans -- not to the point that I did.  It will only result in you becoming so frustrated and annoyed from there whining and BSing that you may do something stupid.
