OTM Open Thread 8/19: It is Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone. The Red Sox have now lost nine in a row, and I would just really like it if they could win one (1) game in order to avoid double digits. I don’t feel that I am asking for much, but who knows. They will try to avoid that fate today with a little bit of day baseball action. First pitch between Kyle Hart and Jake Arrieta is at 1:05 PM ET. It’s also a big day/night for Boston teams in the postseason, with the Bruins looking to finish off the Hurricanes in the first round at 3:00 PM ET while the Celtics look for a 2-0 series lead over the Sixers at 6:30 PM ET. Those games will be broadcast locally and also on NBCSN and TNT, respectively. There are also four other NHL games and three other NBA games. And, back to baseball, the Braves and Nationals play on ESPN tonight at 7:00 PM ET. Use this space to discuss whatever you’d like. As always, just be nice to each other.
