    on manhattan beach

    karisa: yo

    the_busblog: busy?

    karisa: not crazy so.

    karisa: how are you/

    the_busblog: not bad

    the_busblog: i want to interview you for this bosox/yankee thing about to go down

    karisa: haha- oh yeah?

    the_busblog: how about in 30 minutes?

    karisa: ok!

    the_busblog: ok ready?

    karisa: haha- i think so :-)

    the_busblog: karisa j, your team has made it past the anaheim angels

    the_busblog: any mixed feelings about your home team creaming the local squad?

    karisa: haha- none whatsover.

    karisa: i don’t care if i lived IN angels stadium.

    karisa: i have never, ever been an angels fan.

    karisa: and i hate their stadium even more.

    karisa: waterfalls?

    karisa: AND the WORST food ever.

    karisa: worst.

    the_busblog: you didnt have the carrot cake?

    karisa: no- but i bet if i did it would have sucked.

    karisa: i mean, how can you ruin a pretzel.

    karisa: and a sausage grinder?

    karisa: and a hot dog?

    karisa: AND- how can you justify playing a lame song like ‘calling all angels’ EVERY inning.

    the_busblog: easy tiger

    karisa: boston fans would have raided the pa booth and beat the person playing it up.

    karisa: sorry.

    the_busblog: do you have any angst saved up for the yankees?

    karisa: you asked ;-)

    karisa: hahahah- don’t get me started.

    the_busblog: tonights game stars which pitchers?

    karisa: my man, schilling.

    the_busblog: pedros not your man?

    karisa: he is….

    karisa: but i am nervous for him.

    karisa: he’s got game 2…. but i think it will be ok.

    karisa: maybe… he needs to repent for last year ;-)

    the_busblog: remind the readers what pedro would have to repent for

    the_busblog: if it isnt too painful

    karisa: haha- uh- game 7…

    karisa: staying in when he should have come out. giving up that heartbreaking homerun…

    karisa: i can’t really talk about it anymore… ;-)

    the_busblog: was that grady littles fault or pedros?

    karisa: but i have a much better feeling this time.

    karisa: grady’s.

    karisa: pedro is still on the team so i am not going to talk too much shit.

    karisa: he has still done lots of good!

    the_busblog: who’s the new manager of the red sox?

    karisa: i know who it is, tony.

    the_busblog: yes but i dont karisa

    the_busblog: f the al

    karisa: i know it is terry francona… you do not need to quiz me about the players ;-)

    karisa: hahahah!

    karisa: TONY!

    karisa: f the AL?

    the_busblog: yes

    the_busblog: the junior circuit

    karisa: we have THE best rivalry in baseball though.

    the_busblog: the pansy division

    karisa: ‘passion’ division.

    karisa: i don’t rag on your cubs.

    karisa: i wish they were in the playoffs too.

    the_busblog: is johnny damon your favorite?

    the_busblog: thank you

    karisa: no, but i think he is great.

    karisa: david ortiz is my favorite.

    the_busblog: if you were single

    the_busblog: and your pal kerrie was single

    the_busblog: and david ortiz was sitting there

    the_busblog: who would get him?

    karisa: haha- she likes pokey reese.

    karisa: and i don’t like him in the ‘i want to jump his bones’ kind of way.

    karisa: i think he is a great baseball player.

    karisa: jason varitek is super sexy.

    the_busblog: so you admit then that you do want to jump johnny damons bones

    karisa: johnny damon- i’d probably just like to smoke pot with ;-)

    karisa: or just have a few beers with.

    the_busblog: do you like the unshaven caveman johnny or should he visit the queer eye fellas?

    karisa: i think his look is working for him.

    the_busblog: is this red sox team better or worse without nomah

    karisa: brady is our new england representative of the metros ;-)

    karisa: as hot as he is.

    karisa: sigh…

    the_busblog: that will be deleted

    karisa: haha- whatever!

    karisa: i don’t want to answer that.

    the_busblog: youre in post-nomar denial?

    the_busblog: thats sweet

    karisa: well i just think it should be left alone. we loved him while he was with us and wish him the best.

    the_busblog: very diplomatic

    the_busblog: now i have asked you privately

    the_busblog: so i will ask you publicly

    the_busblog: if the sox win the series

    the_busblog: a first in 1,000 years

    the_busblog: and the pats win the superbowl

    the_busblog: and if kerry wins the presidency

    karisa: 86 years, thank you.

    the_busblog: will you pose nude for the busblog

    the_busblog: you can wear red sox

    karisa: hahaha- i told you. you’d have to ask permission from my boyfriend AND my mother.

    karisa: and my mom has never even uttered the f-word.

    the_busblog: is she a big sox fan?

    karisa: i’d say bigger than myself even.

    karisa: she doesn’t miss a game.

    the_busblog: i think i can get her to say yes

    the_busblog: i would work the angle that it would be good “luck” if you agreed to such an offer

    karisa: haha- i bet that would only happen if the earth’s rotation decided to spontaneously change direction and she developed a severe case of schizophrenia.

    the_busblog: she wouldnt even approve of it for her beloved ball club?

    karisa: nope. she doesn’t care about the patriots as much.

    the_busblog: yes, but she loves the sox

    karisa: and what makes you think my boyfriend would agree?

    the_busblog: i have information that might persuade him

    the_busblog: ok, yankees…

    the_busblog: are you happy that the sox will play the yankees again to see who gets in the world series?

    karisa: i think that it will only really count if we beat the yankees to get there.

    the_busblog: in my opinion the only match up worth watching is the sox-yanks

    the_busblog: who do you hate the most of the yankees?

    karisa: i agree with you.

    karisa: hmmmmm….

    karisa: i hate derek jeter.

    karisa: not a fan of sheffield.

    the_busblog: more than a-rod?

    karisa: more than a-rod.

    karisa: a-rod hasn’t proved to be too much of a threat.

    the_busblog: other than the greatest catch ever?

    the_busblog: how do you feel about joe torre?

    karisa: honestly?

    the_busblog: please.

    karisa: joe torre looks like my neighbor from when i was younger.

    the_busblog: ahahaha

    karisa: everytime i see him i think that mr. mcdonald has quit the fire department and is posing as the coach of the yankees.

    karisa: he is irrelevant to me.

    karisa: nice nostalgia.

    the_busblog: is zimmer still a coach for the yanks?

    karisa: hmmm…. i haven’t seen him in awhile- i have no idea.

    the_busblog: i doubt it but i would like to see another pedro/zim brawl

    the_busblog: that has to be one of the best of a long line of great sox/yanks moments

    karisa: haha- nah. i think the last brawl involving a-rod was better.

    karisa: ok- maybe not as memorable and/or funny….

    karisa: but i still don’t like to see an old man go down like that. plus, i think it sort of hexed pedro.

    the_busblog: interesting

    the_busblog: perhaps it did hex him

    the_busblog: however if pedro pitched for any other team, youd probably hate his guts, no?

    karisa: well i don’t have to worry about that right now, do i? ;-)

    karisa: and i don’t really hate ex-red sox players usually….

    karisa: unless they go to the yankees… cough (wade boggs…) cough (roger clemens)

    the_busblog: as we wrap up, what is your favorite sox/yankee moment?

    karisa: it will be the one where we beat them in game 5 to get into the world series.

    the_busblog: was that 86?

    the_busblog: my mind is foggy

    karisa: no- i mean this series upcoming.

    the_busblog: ahahahahaha

    the_busblog: youre the best karisa, thank you for granting us this interview

    karisa: hahah- my pleasure, tony :-)
