Ah, yes. This would absolutely be the thread to drag me out from lurking and post. I borrowed his number for my username.
I want him so bad. Jason's seriously the first athelete I ever fell for; in school I had never even had a crush on anyone who played any sport. The only problem I've ever had with him is that he seems so serious most of the time. Though this preseason he appears to have loosened up a bit and is having a bit more fun.
Earlier this week NESN showed video of the team being sized for their World Series rings and, though he isn't in the whole vid, Jason's in quite a bit of it. And I think you all will like what he's wearing. ;) Video can be seen at CENTER FIELD :: Vox Populi
And, if you can sit through 50 seconds of Curt Schilling's postgame blather, you will be rewarded with naked Jason. Actually found the link to this vid in an old thread here. YouTube - Jason Varitek changing
Enjoy, fellow fans.
