The ceremonial shaving of Johnny Damon.: You know, for charity!

Sure, it's cheesy and staged, but it's Friday and his fiance is quite the looker!

Make that his fiancee. I know it's legal now in MA, but still...

I hate fake breasts. Funny that they made such a huge event out of this. Funnier that his first reaction was that he needs to lose weight, and that he started shaving at age 6 (!). I always thought Damon was pretty cool. Except when he's batting against the Yankees.

This Yanks fan has to admit, between Manny Ramirez getting U.S. citizenship and Damon's caveman look getting shaved off for charity and Curt Schilling's comments, I think it would be more fun to root for the Sox than for the Yankees. The Red Sox are like a light-hearted sitcom while the Yankees are a tense soap opera. But rings are all that matter.

I hate fake breasts. Jose Lima doesn't! (Have Mrs. Lima and Jesus Damon's fiancee ever been seen in the same room together?)

I first saw Damon's finacee during a Bruins playoff telecast. He probably met her at Revere Beach or the mall in Saugus. Additionally, they showed the Sox players' box at the game for about two minutes and she was talking at him the entire time while he was watching the game. Doesn't mean anything, but the next day at work about 3 of us all mentioned it.

He's still ugly.

Four pictures of this were on the front page of the Boston Globe this morning. I am completely conflicted as to what this say about Boston and/or the Globe.
