Throwback

Doug:
Hey, Arturo, what's the word? Any specials.

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
But, of course...

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Today I'm introducing the Cody Ross.

 

Doug:
Oh, do tell.

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Well, it's a classic in homage to Cody's classic made-for-Fenway swing and a throwback to simpler times— mustard, relish, onion, all beef frank.

 

Doug:
I'm with you on the classic metaphor as Ross' swing seems tailor made for Fenway and is reminiscent of the some quintessential right-handed hittahs to don the red stockings...

 

Doug:
But if just mustard/relish/onion what makes it a "Cody Ross."

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Ah, Mr. Roy, that's just it...

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
As you turn and "walk off" I holler, "Hey, buddy, the next 3 are on the house!"

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Boom. Unexpected. Boom. Game winnah.

 

Doug:
!

 

Doug:
Arturo, you are like the Ted Williams of hot dog vendahs.

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Well, you know it is Mr. Roy, I try to keep my head on straight.

 

Comments

Arturo is the Boston Speed Dog of Soxaholix.

Nice one h.b.

Bet anyone here they won't re-sign him.

Got an unexpected invite to tonight's game. Think I'll have me a Cody Ross at the park.

Tarry delight, so seldom met.

Ah, as soon as Papi comes back Ross will end up on the DL.

Are we so cynical round these parts that we cannot bask in the simple joy that is a game well won? (Or walked-off, as it were.)


Am I being too optimistic in my lofty youth to want to enjoy this and tell you that it has brought a smile to my face more than once today?

If that's wrong, I don't want to be right.

Right on target today, h.b. Believe I'll have me a cookout tonight... Two Cody Rosses, some chips and a Coke.


Maybe a can of corn to go with?

@Scott: Bet on. Ross will be resigned. I'll bet you a hot dog at Arturo's.

@pseudoinsanity: Yes, Red Sox fans cannot totally enjoy any simple triumph, aware of the disaster lurking around the corner. In 2004, I was at my brother's house watching the 4th and final game of the World Series. Red Sox up 3 games to none, ahead in game four late in the seventh inning. My sister-in-law says, "I give the Sox a 50-50 chance of pulling this out."

@pseudoinsanity: you should indeed bask in the glow of that win, because if you are not optimistic when you are young, you will have missed your chance.

Arturo's special tomorrow will be the Nick Punto. That's an Italian sausage with peppers and onions on a hoagie bun, but just before he serves it to you, he rips the bun and toppings into crumbs and hands you just the sausage.


"The Shredder", Punto, really? Goddamn weirdo! I thought we got rid of all of the characters on this team!

Bob - you are not going to subject us to your usual racist Friday afternoon farewell, are you?

Speaking of Monday... I'm going out of town and taking a long weekend.


I'll put up a placeholder post for any yakking.

So if a Monday completes a "long" weekend, I guess it's true what they say after all, isn't it?

I always thought "Tuesday After A Long Weekend" was a true slur.


I any case, I have to go get a haircut. I'm starting to get Farrah Fawcett jokes thrown my way. (At least I hope they're referencing my hair and not my moobs.)


Have a great weekend all. Hopefully we'll have something fun to yak about on Honky.

Fenway Park is the center of world cynicism. If it isn't I would say there's oh, a bunch of bars that are populated by Red Sox fans that could qualify.
We are no where near the gold standard of cynical thought and action. That honor (Drum roll) is held by the French Army and has been since 1812!
Cody Ross channeled his inner Chuck Berry after he tossed his helmet. Good stuff, Cody!

Who the fuck is Cody Ross?

I'm too tired to post a link, but go to The Onion and search Kevin Youkillis


Unbelievingly,

Lc
