Nice Service

The Red Sox picked up a new catcher the other day, because he was capable of catching their knuckleballer. But he was in San Diego, and they need him to catch that night. So, they got him a private jet -- cool. But on ESPN, he mentioned that, when he got to Boston, he was driven by cops to Fenway Park at 100 miles per hour.

Do you think if, say, a plumber is late for work in Beantown, he can get a high-speed police escort to work?

  1. Well the government probably subsidized the stadium, and pays for (a lot of) the security for events, so at least they're being consistent.

    Also, I'm sure there is a joke involving a catcher and 100 mph escort, but it escapes me at the moment.

    Yes. If the mayor, police chief or [insert state official] needs a plumber right away, they'll get one right way.
