The Daisuke Matsuzaka era has begun. He was apparently impressive in his debut striking out 10 and getting the win. I say apparently because I did not get to see any it because for some bizarre reason the debut of an international phenom with a price tag of over $100 million did not have enough hype to be broadcast to a national audience. That or a Royals game merited a blackout to everyone except the New England/Kansas City area because it had its first sell out since George Brett left town.
Granted I had to work but I was planning on a long lunch to catch some of it only to find out I was SOL. The Sports Guy kept a running diary of the game for those interested. Also reading the Sports Gal's review of the first episode of The Bachelor was a pleasant distraction from work. Sort of a "Desperation is the world's worst cologne/perfume" theme played out for our entertainment. Good stuff.
