Nerd Alert! A comparison of Josh Beckett and the “Star Trek” films

Before you read the link below, please be sure to click this brief audio file:

Thank you. You may now proceed to a lengthy comparison of Josh Beckett’s Red Sox career to the “Star Trek” movie franchise.

And yes, I can call the author a nerd because I too like the “Star Trek” films, because that audio file is a capture of my daughter calling me a baseball geek, and because we can call each other that.

But you can’t.

    Re: the audio file:

    Craig, I enjoyed reading about your trip to the Cactus League this year, but what I really missed was a post at the end about your daughter’s underwhelmed and slightly dismissive reaction to your return.

    Re: the Star Trek v Beckett comparison:

    I suspect the comparison, if accurate, means Beckett will be off the Red Sox (out of baseball?) after 2012, leaving the franchise to the Next Generation.

    Star Trek made movies? I thought it was just a tv show.
