quick hits

After a few days at Disney World with the family I am back at thefoulline headquarters ready for Game 5. It’s game time, so this is going to be quick.

  • Manny is an idiot. His comments contradict what every Boston fan is thinking. Every year matters. See my post Manny being Manny from September 4th for more thoughts on him.
  • Signs your team and its fans are surprised they made the MLB playoffs
    1. Coming up with a stupid slogan. Example: “Rocktober.” I know that Colorado was amazed they made the playoffs with five no-name pitchers and a starting 9 that couldn’t be picked out of a police line-up, but this is really the best they could come up with? How about this one instead: Colorado Rockies: If we were in the AL, we would be watching the playoffs.
    2. Free towels to every fan that attends the game. Example: Cleveland’s “It’s Tribe Time Now.” This is without a doubt the dumbest thing they could have put on a free towel. It would make more sense for the Cleveland Indians owners to not only supply a towel to their fans but some soap and shampoo as well. This might help the bugs from swarming all of their stinky fans again.
  • If Fox Sports shows that moron in the outfield playing the drum another hundred times tonight, I am flying to Ohio and punching that guy in the face. How does this guy play the Wizard Master in his bi-weekly Dungeons & Dragons game and still have time to play the drums at every Indians game? Oh, I know. I’m betting that he doesn’t have a girlfriend.
  • How great is it to be a Red Sox fan? Down 3 games to 1 and nobody has pushed the panic button. Four years ago, people all over New England would be on suicide watch. Now, we are like, “they’ve been there before, they can come back.”

That’s all for now. I will be back first thing in the morning for the Game 6 preview.

Go Sox!

    What kind of bullshit call is that. Who the fuck is this umpire and how stupid can you be. HMMMMMM is it about time for replay yet? This is bullshit they better not lose by a run.

  2. Dave Says:

    It looks like the umps got the call right. It’s still no excuse for Manny lollygagging around the bases. There is some good news. The Sox are being patient at the plate and looking at a lot of pitches. They may be ready to put up a big inning.
    It’s the top of the 4th as I’m writing this.

    Side note: Coco Crisp needs to sit. Bring on Ellsbury..Now!

    Game Six, Your Starting Center Fielder, Jacoby Ellsbury.

    ehy, C-mac, unlike our usually bleek persective and sometimes dismal end of the world attitude when it comes to Red Sox issues or New England sports in general, we were lucky that who ever was heading home did not slow up and that Manny “atleast” had the knowledge to get to first and call time. Granted he could have been on second with the throw going home, but still.

    Jeff Francis is the man! He won 17 games this year, and was a first round draft pick in ’04 I believe, so I’d hardly say he’s a no name

  7. Dave Says:

    Jeff Francis would be lucky to win 12 games in the American league. If you asked 100 random people who Jeff Francis is. 95 would have no clue.
    This number increases to 99 in Canada. Facts are facts. He is a no name.

  9. Dave Says:

    I was under the impression that Michael J.Fox and Celine Dion were the only Canadian Icons. :)

    Pam Anderson. Canadian Made, American Customized.

    Molson Ice I think is Canadian

  12. Dave Says:

    You are correct young Dylan.
    Let’s go with Molson and Ice hockey as the best things to come out of Canada. They can keep Bryan Adams, Alan Thicke and Nickleback. As well as the other previously stated exports.

  13. Matt McLaughlin Says:

    Ah Ice Hockey. Thats a keeper, ay?

    Yeah, and Zamboni technology, where would we be in the Ice smoothing technology world with those craft Canucks? -Dylan’s Stache’
