Can you say "Yearbook photo"? ^_^ In truth I'm trying to remain composed. I have my arm around Craig Hansen!
Our superstar rookie closer, Jonathan Papelbon. I thanked him for signing for so many folks in Atlanta. He was very relaxed for having pulled off an incredible two-and-a-third innings about two hours beforehand!
Truth be told, if I could have taken anyone home... definitely Lo. Note that I'm wearing my Madres necklace (but don't note that I'm also wearing it elsewhere--it was chaos) as well as my Yo-Lo-Go-Lo-Va t-shirt for him!
I knew I was going to come out of this with a bunch of nearly-identical photos, so I was trying to think of a way to be different with Coco. He was incredibly personable and charming... and amenable!
(This cracked up everyone present, BTW.)
And finally, as the price of driving me, Mom extorted my Lowell ticket...
