From the Dept. of Pretty F#$king Awesome comes news that Nomar Garciaparra, my sister’s favorite player ever and the one-time Face of the Future of Red Sox Nation, will be announcing his retirement today–as a Red Sox. Turns out ownership is signing him to a one-day minor league deal so he can retire as a Sox, then he’s off to a gig at ESPN. NESN will have the presser live at 10:30.

I spoke of my Nomar love back here. You can speak of yours in the comments.

And, just one more time, let’s go here:

Thank you, Mr. Garciaparra.
