NOG Hob-Nobbing On "Pitch"

John Henry—rumored to be the principal owner of the Boston Red Sox Baseball Club—has been across the pond viewing his newest toy, the Liverpool soccer team in the English Premier League. As his other team (no, not NASCAR) flounders after an also-ran 89-win season, Henry and his wife Linda Pizzuti are the toast of the town (such as it is, after all, this is Liverpool we're talking about). The local "fans" are convinced that the three straight wins for their previously miserable team are the result of Henry taking over. Isn't that special? Hey, John, when you get a chance, could you focus a bit on your little hardball team here in Beantown?
