Today the Boston Red Sox return to Fenway Park for their 2021 home opener. After a disappointing 2020 (in so many ways), I’m excited to have Alex Cora return as the team’s manager, although I’m sad that many of the players he coached from the 2018 World Series are no longer part of the team. I have no idea what to expect from this year’s Boston Red Sox, but I’m excited and hope I get a chance to go to a game this year.
The game starts at 2:10 PM ET today and will be broadcast (locally) on NESN.

I want to give the WR 2021 calendar a plug. Readers of this blog (I assume) are well aware of this calendar which started in 2009 to raise funds for the rowing program at the University of Warwick. The calendar is comprised of mostly heterosexual athletes who get naked and pose to send a very specific message for gay men: let’s celebrate your sexuality and show that you are welcome in the world of sports.
Starting in 2014 funds raised from past sales were used to form, Sport Allies, a U.K. registered charity. The mission of this charity is to make sport a more inclusive environment for everyone, and the Worldwide Roar remains the charity’s key funder.
If wall calendars are not your thing, but you like the idea of purchasing merchandise to support this group, check out the link below for other items such as apparel, books, prints and more.
Hard to believe it but at this time last year Sergio and I were traveling through Argentina. It was great to revisit Buenos Aires – one of my favorite cities in the world. Here I am at Parque Thays having fun with a Botero sculpture. Leave a funny caption as a comment for this post, and I’ll approve it for readers to enjoy.
Dominic Thiem is a top ranked tennis player from Austria who won his first Grand Slam title, The US Open, earlier this year. However, one might say it is his assets off the tennis court that continue to get my attention.
Back in 2017 my post Dominic Thiem butt distracts TV commentators got a lot of attention from readers so I’m assuming that the photos of Thiem’s lime green derriere as shared by the Instagram atpdudes will have a similar affect on my readers and possibly result in creating a few more tennis fans.
