Weekend Links: Bloody Sock Edition

Written by

It's game 6 for the Red Sox and if you have been a fan you know that something special is likely to happen tonight. ESPN went back and recapped some of the famous game 6's the Red Sox have been involved in.

In 1967, the Red Sox came back from a 2-1 deficit to win the game and force a game 7.
In 1975, one of the most famous home runs was hit - Carlton Fisk waving it fair over the Green Monster.
In 1986, there was the big collapse with the famous ball going through Bill Buckner's legs.
In 2004, Curt Schilling with essentially a broken foot beat the Yankees. Yes, this is the famous bloody sock game.

Tonight Schilling takes the mound in a game 6 again. There's an 80% chance I'm going to cut my ankle and bloody up a sock in tribute to that last performance of Schilling's. I'm joking... maybe... Let's go to the links:

The Digerati Life is tells about Silicon Valley job history. If you think that I'm just linking to get extra entries to win a $50 iTunes card in her giveaway than you know me too well.

Five Cent Nickel is doing some awesome charity work. I would join in, but with losing 50% of our household income, I need to cramp down on all expenditures. So maybe my contribution is to bring attention to this great work.

Money Smart Life gives me an idea to win 50,000. I will have to look into this, because it would be a good "job" for me now.

Golbguru is Glad that Oil prices are rising. I'm glad as well, because it means that people will look into other energy alternatives, something good for the long term.

I don't usually like to other link-ups, but I'm making an exception for Generation X Finance. He's got a podcast coming up next week presented by About.com and sponsored by Charles Schwab. It's not everyday that a personal finance blogger can say that.

Sun asks if we are rate chasers. I'm not because it's too much work for too little profit. I hate transferring money all over the place - it just doesn't seem efficient.

Jim tells us the basics of prenuptial agreements. We had meant to get a prenup for some time, but got distracted by the wedding planning itself.

Free Money Finance tells us how not to get a job. My plan is to not apply for one - cut that "problem" right from the source ;-).

No Credit Needed writes how he lives without a credit card. I just don't get how he reserves a hotel room, rents a car, or buys anything online.

Mighty Bargain Hunter writes seven ways to conquer Chuck E. Cheese. I'm going to have file this away for the future.

  1. Bloody sock allegories make me ill! I’m way too squeamish… But whatever you do, no pictures please!! ;)

    Shouldn’t this be the bloody stocks edition after Friday?

    Lazy… I use a debit card for all of those things. I reserve the car or hotel w/ the debit card and then pay in cash (or use the debit card) – and I use a debit card associated with a secondary checking account for (the very limited number of) online purchases that I make. In almost 3 years, I’ve never had a company reject my debit card for a reservation…

  4. Lazy Man says:

    Ahh, I make no differentiation between a debit and credit card. For me debit is another word for “not going to get bonus points for this.”

    I’m glad the Sox won last night. Is your ankle healing from it is laceration?

    Lazy –

    This post is dated Saturday October 20th, and it references some charity work Five Cent Nickel is doing. Five Cent Nickel is matching donations (up to a limit) to The Conservation Fund but the deadline was Friday October 19th. Your post was a day late and a dollar short, literally.

    Well I tried. There’s always a chance that he’ll extend it.
