« How's that champagne tasting, Donnie Garko? | Main | "Surprise Inside" »

Two scoops with jimmies

Bill:
Here it is Tuesday and yet I'm still mouth agape in wonderment that, yeah, we are going to the World Series again.

 

Mike:
Oh me too. And I swear on the baby Jesus that I'm nevah going to treat a trip to the World Series as a birthright like some fans of anothah team that shall remain nameless.

 

Bill:
Speaking of our Spankee siblings, they're making themselves scahce these days, huh?

 

Mike:
Well, I have been getting quite a few congratulatory emails from Yankees fans.

 

Bill:
Oh, I'm sure.

 

Mike:
Yeah, all "Congratulations" and "good luck" and "Oh, BTW Go fuck yourself. I hate your Sux and hope that on the way to Denvah their plane crashes in the Rockies and is not found until the snow melts in the Spring and you discovah half your rostah has been eaten by the other half that is now traumatized and sociopathic."

 

Bill:
Heh.  Seeing Yankees fans in torment is such a delicious added bonus to going to the World Series.

 

Mike:
Absolutely.  It's not only the icing on the cake but also the jimmies on the ice cream.

I had a few MFY fans I know still talking shit about how we were going to lose to Cleveland just like they did.

They're so quiet I can hear the crickets chirping now...They must be drunk on whatever sour grapes Garko didn't finish.

Look at what's happened to me,
I can't believe it myself.
Suddenly I'm up on top of the world,
It should've been somebody else.

Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free-.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.

It's like a light of a new day,
It came from out of the blue.
Breaking me out of the spell I was in,
Making all of my wishes come true-.

Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free-.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.

Well, said. My only quarrel is that MFY Fans are not nearly as clever as to come up with that whole "frozen like a Carvel birthday cake" scenario.

They are more likely to take one of several tacks:

1. Can you count to 27?
2. "puzzare da fare schifo"
3. something about a curse
4. "sgualdrina" [directed to the pink hat crowd.
5. "Oh My Gawd. Rogah Clemons is standing in Gawge Steinbrennah's Bawx"

see you in the series.

"Oh, BTW Go fuck yourself. I hate your Sux and hope that on the way to Denvah their plane crashes in the Rockies and is not found until the snow melts in the Spring and you discovah half your rostah has been eaten by the other half that is now traumatized and sociopathic."

You got that email too?

I have a feeling that the entire team could survive by eating Dr. Charles alone.

Nice pick up Bill :)

On my drive this morning, I saw a Yankees hat on the side of the interstate. That's loyalty for you. I still have my first Sox hat circa 1976 with my name written in my childish print and another that I got from some gas station promotion and later got water damaged when my roof blew off my bedroom.

Re: Sox hats...

You know your loyalty is unfailing when this happens... I'm eight years old, in the front passenger seat of my parents' Ford LTD wood-sided stationwagon, Sox hat on, like it always is. We're driving from Gloucester to Ipswich on 133, headed for Goodale Orchard, and I stick my head out the window.

My Sox hat flies off and I shout. Probably said something an eight-year-old isn't supposed to say. In my mind, I can see it flopping on the side of 133, and then more cars coming by and running it over and tearing it up and you know, making Fred Lynn catches in the backyard isn't going to be nearly as much fun without the hat on, and...

...and my brother hands my hat back to me from the back seat. It flew out the front seat window and into the back seat window, smacking him in the face (bonus!).

See, Sox fans can't get rid of it, even if they wanted to. It sticks with you. And am I ever glad it did.

What, no thanks to the Indians for giving you guys TWO gifts this postseason? Geez, that's gratitude for ya.

Honestly, I'm still looking forward to seeing the Sox lose in the W-S. [cue evil laugh]

"On my drive this morning, I saw a Yankees hat on the side of the interstate."

I guess you passed the jumping off the bandwagon point of the highway!

'What, no thanks to the Indians for giving you guys TWO gifts this postseason? Geez, that's gratitude for ya.'

We'll send CC another cupcake. Thanks.

No wait guys...it gets better. Seems like Fux Sports (no typo there) and Ken Rosenthal still can't seem to actually praise the Sox for once.

Bunch of bitter fuckers is what I call 'em. That and having to read shit-kicker Pats/Sox haters claim all of New England cheats. Go fuck yourselves. Hey Dallas, how'd that FG from Denver taste? Hey Jets, still sucking? Thought so. Hey Pittsburgh, tough break kid.

Hey, most the Spankee fans I know are being good sports....lol...Yeah right...

However, I wanted to know if anyone else notices how the Playoff fans at Fenway seem to suck compared to the regular season Fans....I mean Its like I'm screaming at my TV telling them to get up off there asses..Its 2 K's and 2 Outs...Show some support....I hate Posers that come out so they can say...I was at the that game when ...errr....Whats his name hit that homerun....Ahhhh...Let me get a ticket to a playoff game sometime...they should do interviews before they sell those tickets...Was a bit too quiet at times for my DIEHARD blood....

Oh yeah...and how did Jerry Springer get those homeplate seats for 3 game sin a row?

Tribefan- and Gagne will deliver the cupcake. There. We're even.

Kinda sucks when the tix are going for something like 7k for one box seat...

Would be nice for them to offer tickets only to fans that actually showed up for the regular season.

Nice pickup, buckner!

Just as I figured would happen: Red Sux fans turning into MFY fans. I guess you guys should be referred to as MFRS fans, 'cause there really ain't that much difference between the two of u...well, except for the lack of numerous championships, of course.

"Nice pickup, buckner!"

Now THERE's an ironic comment that ever was posted

I wanted to be obvious enough so that Yankee fans might even get it!

rightsaid and tribefan has the same email address...hmmmm.

"The jimmies on the ice cream."

THAT'S what I'm talking about!

Can't get anything past you, can I tessie. You know how to mouse-over! Good for you.

//there really ain't that much difference between the two of u...well, except for the lack of numerous championships, of course.//

Let's see...Red Sox, 6 titles (going for their 7th), Indians, 2.

Go tend your midge farm.

Can I just say that I HATE that everyone else wants to call them "sprinkles"?

They're JIMMIES...

That thing over there is a BUBBLER...

You turn on your BLINKER...

Grr...

Hey look tessie, same email address here too! Go White Sox!

Just good at smelling trolls, that's all. Don't you have a white towel to go cry in?

way to keep up - White Sox won there latest in 2005. And you know as well as anyone else that it doesn't matter what the rest of the league does, what sticks in your ass is that you will ALWAYS be second to NY.

No, I wouldn't even say that, it was pretty simple. I thought those white surrender flags were stupid too, so you got nuthin on me. Go White Sox!

Got a good book for you TribeFan, RightSaid, Wowyourwickedsmahrt, Notevenanindiansfan, HeyBob:

http://www.amazon.com/Sybil-Flora-Rheta-Schreiber/dp/0446359408/ref=pd_bbs_2/104-5810951-8723146?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1193152309&sr=1-2

Oh, BTW, we certainly weren't second to NY his year. And unlike Chicago, at least we don't feel inferior to Milwaukee.

Now, we shall ignore the troll, lest he continue to defecate from his pie-hole.

Wow, somebody's awful uppity. Nothing says "my team isn't playing in the classic, but I'm going to be classy about it" like going to a Sox site and whining at the readership.

Nothing wrong with Cleveland - they just didn't have the team, and the pitching, to get the job done this year.

//Nothing wrong with Cleveland...//

Well, not counting the beards, of course.

Indians fans are Cubs fans without the security blanket of a goat or Bartman to latch onto at night when the darkness comes.

Speaking of beards. I scared everyone during Game 2 by going off on a drunken tirade concerning the stupid playoff beards worn by Cleveland. Playoff beards are for hockey. The wave is for football in the 80's and Fenway in the summer. Simple rules people.

Rockies are screwing their "fans" by selling tickets on the interwebs only. So the brokers all over the country will have dibs rather than the real "fans". Server crashed yesterday after 8-million hits. Are you kidding me! What a bunch of cheap fuckers in the Rox front office.

In re: trolls.

Do. Not. Feed.

lc

Thanks Kaz. Pap has lots of energy, doesn't he? I'm tired from watching him.

Boston has non-Red Sox fans?

Oh, 0 comments. I guess that make sense now.

Re "BostoniansNotRedSoxOrBaseballFans" I don't think there is anything I dislike more than people who want to decide what is the "right" way to live, i.e, "Don't buy that hot dog or spend money on the Red Sox!! No, no, no, do what we tell you to do because it's the RIGHT THING because we said so. Otherwise you suck. Oh and BTW the pediatric nurses hate you too."

Fucking fascists in disguise.

Guys Guys OMG did you see this guy on Monday night football last night?

Please check this link it is hilarious.

I will never look at thundersticks the same again!

I am not so much happy to be in the World Series. It's not like I feel it is a birthright or anything, but I've been waiting for the WS all year. The prize is still four wins a way.

I was totally stoked after we sealed Game 7 in the 8th, but my jubilation died quickly, as I looked forward to Wednesday. Let's get it on!

////Nothing wrong with Cleveland...//

Well, not counting the beards, of course.//

Or the fact that Cleveland is such a shithole that they once managed to catch a river on fire? Not standing water like a puddle, but a moving and flowing river.

Now, THAT is a cesspool.

That was funny. Love the crazy shit people come up with.

//Fucking fascists in disguise.//

Tell me about it.

I despise these people who bemoan the fact that some people like sports while the "world is going to hell and what about THE CHILDREN!!!!"

You know, I can walk and chew gum at the same time.

Once, I even bought playoff tickets AND donated money to the Katrina Relief Fund.

Imagine that.

There are some happy folks in Cleveland. I have to believe that Mark Shapiro's shiksa was relieve that she did not have to go to any more ball games.

Speaking of discarded caps by the side of the road... somebody must have picked up a helluva lot of RS caps tossed aside in `05 and `06, cuz there are a TON of new caps on the board this week. Am I the only one who noticed the 800-pound elephant on the bandwagon?

Glad to see that Rockies' ticket-selling technology is about as fan friendly as hacksaw surgery. I'd go out there if I could buy tickets for under 10x face value.

Rock,

I live in Cleveland and the incident you referred to happened over 30 years ago. Cleveland and many other cities have since cleaned up their acts. The place isn't perfect but I've never been anywhere that is.

Yeah, considering that one of the popular songs associated with Boston and the Red Sox has the lines,"Well I love that dirty water/ Oh, Boston, you're my home," it's a bit ironic to give Cleveland a hard time about the Cuyahoga.

Best to leave CLE alone. Something tells me we'll see more of Pronk and the crew in future years.

As for Denver, they may win this series, but their chance of facing the Sahwx in a future series are about as good as [insert name of barely legal female movie star] coming through my door right now and [insert foul, but gratifying, physical act].

let the Denver pileonathon begin. have we lost our game picking on poor old hapless Cleveland? We have an entire half of the Continental US to slice and dice.

your welcome.

//Once, I even bought playoff tickets AND donated money to the Katrina Relief Fund.//

Bob, don't forget the tireless, unselfish work you do to support the service industry in and around Boston. Why, you single-handedly support 3 or 4 bartenders AND their familes
We need more Bobs in this world, I say

Wow. I've read this site dutifully every day for the past four-plus years(long-time listener, first-time caller), to the shagrin of employers and girlfriends alike, and I can't remember such a flood of comments from people hoping on board and bashing the Sox. I don't know that I would ever stoop to taint my soul with visits to a Yankees site or other sore losers (looking at you, Tribe timers), particularly in the wake of heart-wrenching losses. I've got plenty of other places to taint my soul. Booze helps too.

Sox have announced Wake is out for the WS. Schill starts game 2 on regular rest, Dick K game 3. No word on game 4 starter. Choices would seem to be Lester, Batshit or Beckett on short rest. What say you?

I work in Times Square and live in Lower Manhattan and can tell you that the NY swastikas have disappeared almost entirely from the landscape except for tourists who don't understand what donning such a lid means and the local loozahs who wear MFY jerseys because it is the priciest piece of their wardrobes... very strange to see more Sox caps in this city than MFYs but the people realize this is the Sox' century dammit.

"Seeing Yankees fans in torment is such a delicious added bonus to going to the World Series"

Isn't "added bonus" redundant? "Free gift"?

I'd go easy on Cleveland fans. They'll remember Joel Skinner's stop sign to Lofton like we remember Grady Little's go sign to Pedro. Plus like someone mentioned we'll be hearing more from Pronk, Sizemore, et al.

Fuck the Indians and fuck the Red Sox. Go White Sox!

Fuck the Indians and fuck the Red Sox. Go White Sox!

Not to get anyone's hopes too high, but this reminds me a little of the Detroit-San Deigo WS 1984...Of course Detroit was a juggernaut that year (like the Sox were through the end of May), and SD had to come back against the Cubbies to make it. There's just something about expansion clubs that haven't had the pain of loss yet...it's like casting the RS experience against all teams, like everyone (should) suffer a little more before they get to the "Hollowed Ground". Seems that Colorado hasn't really REALLY suffered enough to grab the prize...

I mean, look at our catharsis: all the terrible letdowns, then an unequaled comback, victory in 2004 - and yet we are still haunted (last summer, parts of this summer) by humiliating failure. And why should another team or group of fans get to taste champagne without eating a few Shit sandwiches first? It's not a question of fair/not fair, it's simply the path to truth, and the satisfaction of a pure victory...

Wheahs Maahty?

"(Joe Torre's) class, his dignity and the way he respected those around him -- from ballplayers to batboys -- are all qualities that are easy to admire but difficult to duplicate," Jeter added.

"Furthermore, I have a close relationship to the batboys" continued Jeter. "It goes beyond pinetar and spittle, to something...well...even deeper"

>>"It goes beyond pinetar and spittle, to
something...well...even deeper"

OMG !! Can it be any better. Do you think he'll be helping out the Fab5 anytime soon?

>>Wheahs Maahty?

He's gone insane and is posting under assumed names and acting like a ChiSox fan!!


dear lc,

please remit (insert astronomical amount here) for the replacement of the monitor I am so graciously provided by my employer since the current model is sprayed with spittle-ridden coffee!

thank you.

Well, that's diffrent. As the lyrics go, "Boston, you're my home." ;-)
