Nomar and D'Lowe Party On


And speaking of over-served, there was the night in 2001 that shortstud Nomar Garciaparra, much to the chagrin of his then-galpal Mia Hamm, got shattered on shots of his favorite Jose Cuervo Tequila Reserva in Barclay’s office.
“Oh, yeah, I heard him hiding in the back hallway telling her (on the phone), ‘I’m not undermining you, I’m just hanging out with my friends.’ ”
(Add whip sound effects here . . .)
During the night in question, No. 5 drank himself silly and then a few hours later found himself - and his hangover - in the Rose Garden at the White House!
“I got up around 11 that morning, turned on the TV and there’s Nomar in the Rose Garden with President Bush dedicating a T-ball field,” the Rackie reminisced. “I’m looking at his face, and he looks green around the gills, so I call his cell phone. ‘I’m in the Oval Office right now,’ he said. ‘And when I get home, I am going to kill you.’ ”

One of our fave tales concerns former Red Sox [team stats] whipping boy Derek Lowe, who, thinking he wouldn’t start against the Yankees the next day, was in a jolly mood when he arrived at the Rack at 10 p.m. one night in 2004.

“ ‘You don’t have to worry about me,’ ” the happy hurler declared, according to Barclay.
“He was in a good mood and drinking heavily,” the Rack maestro recalled. “At one point he was behind the bar pouring drinks and then checking coats. He was having a helluva time.”
But wouldn’t you know it, the next day the hungover party boy got the call to the mound to start against the Bronx Bombers. Do we even have to tell you he went four innings, giving up 10 runs?
“I’ll never forget the headline in the Herald the next day, ‘Lowe Down Dirty Shame,’ laughed the Rack owner. “I thought, ‘Whoops, I hope we don’t get blamed.” (You didn’t.)
