In Honor of Phil Huuuughes….Meet The Parents

I know this is an old video from the All Star break, but since Huuuuughes is making his big start tomorrow night in the Bronx I thought I’d resurrect it. I can’t decide if my favorite part is his mother saying how much he weighed at birth (yikes) or his collection of bobble head dolls.
Mr. and Mrs. Hughes were at the All Star game in Anaheim and Phil didn’t pitch so well. I have no idea if they’re planning to be at the game tomorrow night, but if they’re bad luck I hope they stay home and watch their boy on that nice TV in their house. Game 3 is a must win, as far as I’m concerned. I have no interest in playing a fourth game in this series, so we need to shut the door on the Twins – shut it and lock it.



    Cute video! PJ! I too liked the bobble heads. Interesting to hear how big a baby Phil was. One of the few bigger than my middle son (11 lbs – born at home). How nice that his mama still takes care of him.

    Peggy, I’m so glad to hear you will be moving back into your house. Yes, I know the hotel had its perks, but you will feel so good to be in your own space again!

    And yes, I loved how Andy had the “Hip, hip Jorge!” t shirt on!

    Going to the shore tomorrow, but I told my friends that we’ll leave around six. My friend asked if we were leaving before dinner because we didn’t want to impose. “nooooo.” Pause. “The Yankees are on at 8:30.” She just laughed because they’ll be watching the game as well, but I don’t want to drive 2 1/2 hours after the game is over.

    Your son was 11 pounds and you had him at home, Melissa? I have even more admiration for you! So you’re going to the shore and I’ll be at a wedding, but we’ll both be back in time for the game. I call that excellent social planning. Drive safely.


    so boston sports radio doesn’t know what to do now. the intro to one evening show is that the host was so depressed over the sox being gone and the yankees winning and then they played jon sterlings call of lance berkman’s homerun. i completely enjoyed it but what are they doing torturing themselves. it’s either that or it’s randy moss talk non stop.
    kind of cute, kind of weird video. i guess he’s still young so it’s not so weird.
    peggy, great news that you are moving into our house. hopefully you’ll be watching the yankees winning the world series there.
    12 hours and counting. off to the maine coast but back in time for the game.
    ps jane, i would get your books at the library but i read them all!

    I am confident in Hughes, I’ve said before i think he’s going to a big time pitcher as years go on, I hope he shuts the Twins down today.
    Its a little scary for future women in his life that he likes his mother to do all that stuff…. a future brides nightmare…LOL

    Boston sports radio played Sterling’s call of Berkman’s homer, Barbara? That’s pure masochism! Either that, or they’re just taking a healthy attitude and reporting what happened. Nah, it’s probably the first. So you’re driving to the coast today like Melissa. Must be nice weather back east, which is good for the game later. Oops, I forgot that you already read my books. Well, read them again! HAHA.

    I’m pretty confident in Hughes too, Peter, although his record at home isn’t so great. He’s pitched in big games so I don’t think nerves will be a factor. He just needs to keep his pitch count down, not nibble and not worry about giving up the long ball. And yeah, I think he needs to stop having his mother do his laundry, but he’s still young.

    I’m afraid this game tonight won’t be any easier than the first two, Virginia. They score first, we come back, they score again, we come back, etc. Your nails could be in for a rough time, but as long as we win, right? You could always get acrylics!

    She-Fan Manor. LOL, Paul. The Hughes’ are a few hours away from me, so I don’t think they’d want to make the trip. Plus, I’ll just be getting home in time for the first pitch; I have a wedding to go to this afternoon. And finally, it’s bad luck whenever I entertain during the playoffs so I stopped inviting people over!

    Hughes has a special friend down here in Tampa Bay who each times he comes into town with the Yankees he takes her to lunch. The last two times he has lost the start.
    I will be sure to not let her travel up to NYC or even get remotely invested in the Yankee playoff hopes.
    Might have to tie her to the chair, but I think Hughes will appreciate it as long as it combines with a “W”.

    Jane, i love your blog. I had a hearty laugh over the Nolan Ryan George Bush pic because on Saturday morning there was a blogger on one of the MLB sites that left the following:

    first of all to texas: welcome to hell. we lived it for 86 years..the yankees are the baseball equivalent of freddy kruger. you think they’re dead. they’re not. you think they’ll stop. they won’t. you think the series is over, and it’s chapter 5 of another awful sequel. frankly i never thought you had a prayer and now i’m convinced of it. that said any team that has george bush (or any bush) as a fan deserves to be beaten in such a humiliating fashion. the picture of ryan and bush sitting there with poopy in their pants should be a tshirt in the bronx. welcome to east coast post season baseball dumb country mice don’t have a chance.
