Wow, what a fabulous headline!

Clap, dee dee dee dee, dee dee dee dee dee dee dee...

Had to look that title up.

In other news NoMaas gets really tasteless. I haven't even seen Sox fans be this pathetic. Those guys need to get laid.

Wow .... that's pretty juvenile, even by MY standards. (speaking of NoMaas, not you) :-)

[1] definitely a great headline. I was expecting the linked clip to be a "Two of Us" treatment of ARod and Jeter celebrating, but I can't say I was disappointed that wasn't the case.

5 Diane Firstman   ~  Sep 28, 2009 2:07 pm

PostGame celebrations ...


Its hard not to like these guys ...

6 Sliced Bread   ~  Sep 28, 2009 2:11 pm

[4] still on the Two of Us tip, "I Dig A Pygmy" could be a good title for the Dustin Pedroia story.

7 RIYank   ~  Sep 28, 2009 2:31 pm

[5] What are they shouting in the background when Mo is talking to Kim? They're chanting something. Sounds sort of like "ED-DIE ED-DIE ED-DIE", or "REGGIE", something in that neighborhood.

8 Diane Firstman   ~  Sep 28, 2009 2:53 pm


Or Freddie Patek, or Darren Sproles or Spud Webb

9 RIYank   ~  Sep 28, 2009 2:57 pm

Hey, Alex, or maybe Cliff, or whoever: I just thought of something.
Could we have a Game Thread for the Tiggers-Twinkies game? That's a pretty good game, and frankly of vastly more significance to us Yankee fans than the actual Yankee game...

[2] Tasteless and not even particularly witty or clever. Some of their older stuff was pretty goddammed funny, IMO (I'll never forget Torre discovers fire, burns bullpen on 08.07.05 [http://tinyurl.com/y8fhysq], which still makes me laugh out loud). But more recent entries are pretty tired and unimaginative. I actually rarely frequent the site anymore.

[9] please don't remind those of us who got tickets to this game back in March

12 Diane Firstman   ~  Sep 28, 2009 3:29 pm

On a slightly different matter, good guy Chad Pennington is apparently done for the season again after tearing the shoulder capsule yesterday.

Can he come back a 3rd/4th time?

13 Sliced Bread   ~  Sep 28, 2009 4:04 pm

[8] fair enough. Revised title for the Pedroia book: "A Bug's Life: How A Pesky Gnat Played 2B For The Boston Red Sox." A little wordy but it will sell in New England. Red Sox fans loves them some colorful pop-up books.

Pete Abe with tonight's lineup:

Gardner CF
Cabrera RF
Damon LF
Posada DH
Cano 2B
Hinske 3B
Miranda 1B
Cervelli C
Pena SS

[11] [13] wow, sorry raging

a bronx banter shirt for anyone who guessed that lineup
is shelley still suspended, might as well stick him in lf

15 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 28, 2009 4:33 pm

[6] Hah hah ah ahh hah ha!


16 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 28, 2009 4:36 pm

[14] Maybe this is my kid's big chance, if only I can get him to the (New) Stadium and suited up in time, he could maybe spell Miranda at first in the late innings.

17 ms october   ~  Sep 28, 2009 4:41 pm

[16] get going!! hell, i'm pretty sure nypd would stop traffic for that

18 RIYank   ~  Sep 28, 2009 4:42 pm

[16] "Miranda"?? That's an easy one. See if he can spell "Yuniesky".

19 Shaun P.   ~  Sep 28, 2009 4:42 pm

[13] [14] I had Miranda at 1B, Cervelli catching, Gardner in CF, Cano at 2B right - but the rest, nope. I thought for sure Jeter would play today, and that Hinske would be in LF with Damon at DH. Oh well.

[11] At least you get to see a game in person - that's better than nothing!

20 RagingTartabull   ~  Sep 28, 2009 4:52 pm

[14, 19] As long as the weather holds up I'm not really complaining. This is one of the games I got when I went in on a partial plan with my friends. Both of whom are pulling no shows (something about "being out of town" and some guy named "Yom Kippur")...so its just me, the GF, and Ramiro Pena tonight.

21 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Sep 28, 2009 5:02 pm

[17] :)
[18] Ohhhhhhhhh.

22 RIYank   ~  Sep 28, 2009 5:06 pm

Before we move on to the next game, did anyone remark on the following unbelievable Jon Miller comment during the game?
Joe Morgan had pointed out that on a tag-up the runner can leave as soon as the ball hits the fielder's glove. Miller agreed, and claimed to have seen a game in which a runner scored from third on a foul pop that the fielder touched and then dropped. He said he saw this play.
My god.
I swear, Joe Morgan looked like a giant in the booth. He was Dustin Pedroia standing between two five year olds, towering over them like a giant. A huge, gritty, giant.

23 RIYank   ~  Sep 28, 2009 5:07 pm

DAMMIT. I keep posting that Millerism in a dead thread. I'm going to try one more time in the game thread.
