Salsa and cookies

NESN has video from the Mike Lowell Dancing with the All Stars competition. Here he is in all his glory!

I also have to include the video of the Red Sox annual Cookie-Off. Dan Roche from WBZ has done this three years in a row - he lines up four cookies and their sponsors, and gets the Spring Training crew to choose their favorites. Again, Lowell makes an appearance (he was great in the '06 version - "from this ripped physique, you can tell I never eat cookies")

I don't know if it's due to the new contract, or because RS Nation has been demonstrative of their collective love of Mike, but this spring he seems to have emerged from his low-key approach. He's more relaxed with the press, showing his wit and brains. He's appeared at these various events, and always gets camera time. He was one of the three players chosen to appear before the White House Press last week (the others were Tek and Oki). He seems to be one of the faces of the Red Sox - perhaps reflecting how the Front Office wants this team to be viewed. Professional, serious baseball players, with a sense of humor and a sense of history.

Hey Beth.

Great point on him being the type of player the Front Office wants.

Words can't express how glad I am to know this man will be manning 3rd for the next 3 seasons.

Now, sign the Captain.
