I was in the car listening to the Sox game when I heard something to the effect of "Nomar Garciaparra had to be carried off the field after collapsing in front of the batter’s box…"
Of course I hear this and my mind starts racing with what, why, how?! Come to find out that he’s now out for 2-3 months with a groin injury after volunteering to bat sixth in the lineup in an effort to help his team out…go figure.
I thought I was over Nomar…I thought I could say "fine go ahead and leave us, we don’t need you anyway!"…I thought I was ok with him sporting another uniform…I thought I could move on and not be concerned with his progress either way but I was wrong!
I, like many other Sox fans, still hold a spot near and dear in my baseball loving heart for Nomah! Number 5, you had me at ‘Hello.."
