“I don’t have to describe it. You saw it. It was outstanding.”
I think I’m going to like Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine. That was his response Monday when reporters questioned him about Jon Lester’s performance.
Really, what was there to say? It was outstanding, and they saw it. So there.
I hope he survives the Boston media.
Why does everything need to be talked to death?
It is particularly noisy this year. Politics, you know.
And right now, all of America (and all of CNN, MSNBC, and FOX, of course) is talking about a crime in Florida we really know very little about. The volume is turned up. All the way up. (Please don’t misinterpret. Discussion about key social issues is critically important. But we still know very little about the actual events of this particular crime.)
Sometimes, when I get weary of all the noise, I try not to contribute to it. Which is why I haven’t posted here as often as I might like to. So many voices, so many opinions, vying for the attention of your eyes and ears, and, after all, you only have two of each.
Sometimes, silence really is golden.
