So I’m off and I’m leaving the team in your hands. I have complete faith that you will do fine. They will probably fail somewhere, but you’ll do fine. I got the International roaming plan on my Blackberry just so I could check on you! And this site. I can’t expect you to watch over my site too. Or can I….

No, probably not. Well, just the team then. I’ll be back in the middle of the first play-off series. At least I don’t have to worry about you hitting Kevin Youkilis in the head. Yet.

Since it’s going to be the Jewish holiday of Sukkot (they have it in Nebraska too!), I’m going to pray for you not to play the Angels in the first round. God doesn’t like teams named after ethnic/racial groups, I’m pretty sure, plus there’s that whole winning record you have against the Indians, that could also help. Oh and world peace, I’m also going to pray for world peace. Amen.

Anyway, Joba, take care of yourself. You got through rookie hazing just fine. As a matter of fact, I think you look smashing in that outfit. Not in that weird, furry way, just in that “if I were king of the forest” way. You get me.

Well I still have some last minute things to do and you’ve probably got some gatorade to drink after being in that costume in 80 degree weather, so I’ll just sign off now.


PS, if you need me, Pious B has my itinerary!

    Dear Joba,

    I didn’t think I could love you more until I saw you in that costume. You rule!

    Hugs and kisses,


    (BTW, I’ll miss you Bec! I will think of you everytime Joba and/or his dad pumps his fist)

    Becca, have a wonderful vacation and travel safely, my dear.

  3. Becca says:

    Thanks, guys!

    Silly Becca. While it’s true on a technicality that they have Sukkot in Nebraska, it’s a moot point, because they don’t have any JEWS in Nebraska!

    But now, in the event that anybody ever does Google the phrase “Jews in Nebraska”….

  5. Pious B says:

    Oh, there most definitely are Jews in NE, Alex. Omaha has quite an active community with a very warm and welcoming rabbi, should you ever wish to visit. There is also a small community in Lincoln, by the by.

    Hey! I saw him 2 weeks ago in Boston too! He was in Wicked.

    Safe travels, Bec! Don’t fret, I’ll keep an eye on Joba for you 😛
