Nemo 1, Red Sox Monster 0.
You can't drive.
You can't take the T.
You might not have power (400,000 people don't).
There's 20-something inches of snow outside your door.
The wind-chill is minus-a lot.

The Red Sox announced Saturday morning via e-mail to fans lucky enough to be on their mailing list that the scheduled phone ticket-sales event for Opening Day tickets against the Baltimore on April 8 and home games against the Yankees has been postponed until Monday at 10 a.m.

Of course, not even a monster blizzard will completely shut down "The Monster." The Red Sox are proceeding with the online sale for "fans selected in the random drawing."

You don't want to miss out on those pole-seats in Section 7 that offer a stunning view of the outfield. Or the drive for third place. Although you might end up watching all that action from MCI-Cedar Junction.
Don't think this team is worth it.
Even if John Lackey has lost 200 pounds.
By the way, there's no truth to the reports on some Twitter feeds that God ordered this storm as vengeance on Boston for trading Tim Thomas to the Islanders.
Stay warm and be safe.
