I'm going to probably write several of these.
Because she wearing an oxygen mask, Casey was a little difficult to understand in the hospital for the past 14 days.
Last Friday night (May 14), the nurse on duty came into the room to check Casey's blood pressure while she watched the Red Sox game.
As the nurse began de-velcroing the blood pressure arm band, Casey said something, but because of the mask, the nurse didn't catch it asked her to repeat it. But it was still unintelligible.
"What do you need honey?" the nurse, an older Asian woman, asked.
Finally Casey lifted the mask off and said "Buck Martinez."
The nurse looked at Casey and then the rest of us, like maybe the pain medication was messing with Casey's thoughts.
The rest of us in the room started giggling. On the TV, NESN's trivia question read: "Who managed the Toronto Blue Jays before current manager Carlos Tosca?"
The answer, of course, was Buck Martinez.
Casey wanted to make sure we knew, that despite her physical problems, nobody was beating her on baseball trivia.
