"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Thursday Night Lights

Costas and Smoltz are calling the Red Sox-Angels game. Angels got four in the first, Kazmir’s given half of it back.

It’s much cooler in the Bronx tonight. Ideal, really. Only a handful of nights this lovely every year in the city.

The picture was taken by Bags.

Angels need more. How 'bout it, Kendry?

2 Alex Belth   ~  May 6, 2010 8:50 pm

Youse guys stink. Beggin' to get swept...

3 Alex Belth   ~  May 6, 2010 8:59 pm

Kazmir is freakin' useless.

4 Alex Belth   ~  May 6, 2010 9:21 pm

the Angels are USELESS.

5 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 6, 2010 9:31 pm

Wow, Daisuke has really been a disaster for the Sox..then again, we got Igawa so...

6 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 6, 2010 9:39 pm

[4] Yep...

7 williamnyy23   ~  May 6, 2010 10:02 pm

It's been lost in the shuffle, but the Angels are simply not a good team anymore.

Jose Feliciano is going to sing the anthem at one of the games in the Yankee series. How cool is that. The story of his rendition during the 1968 World Series is really incredible.

I loved seeing Scioscia's face after Howie fel over. I hope he gets fired and goes to Japan.

9 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 6, 2010 10:12 pm

[8] Scioscia won't fit into the dugouts over here..

[7] Awesome! I love Jose Feliciano, and that anthem story really is amazing

It really is a beautiful night.

The Angels pitching staff is going to go down as one of the more overhyped staffs of 2010. Five number twos my ass

12 Boatzilla   ~  May 6, 2010 11:25 pm

Sorry, off topic, but the other thread is long dead, maybe this one, too. Cliff, 07834 is (or was) Denville, New Jersey--the hub of Morris County. Cheers.

The Mariners aren't very good either. The gap between the AL East and the rest of the AL seems to be almost as large as the gulf between the AL and NL.

14 thelarmis   ~  May 6, 2010 11:32 pm

christ almighty. the Rays machine just keeps on churning. it's already 5-0 and they're threatening for more, big time. what a division we're in.

[11] ha! i remember reading a big feature article about the "5 #2's" = funny!

15 williamnyy23   ~  May 6, 2010 11:37 pm

[14] The Rays are definitely very good, but I've watched all three games in the series and the Mariners have been really awful. They haven't even been playing very good defense. That division is really wide open...all four AL West teams are a hodge podge of mediocrity. It's almost like the NFL.

16 thelarmis   ~  May 6, 2010 11:43 pm

[15] i didn't see it, but the contsant basketball changing of scores and football final in the tejas-royales game was nutty. vlad is raking. even has 3 sb's this season! soriano has a but a one. i fear he won't reach 300...

yeah, the M's are a sorry club. how does that saunders kid look out there? i've been enjoying watching Heyward here in atlanta. i hope the fish call up Stanton soon, too...

17 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 6, 2010 11:47 pm

[15][16]Sad that the M's are so bad..but guys, I watched the Pirates on tv the other day...(putting clothes pin on nose to block out the stink..)

18 williamnyy23   ~  May 6, 2010 11:49 pm

[16] Saunders on the Mariners?

19 williamnyy23   ~  May 6, 2010 11:53 pm

[17] Watching, and in some cases rooting for other teams really makes me appreciate the Yankees. We've been lucky to have a very good baseball team to watch over the last 17 years.

20 thelarmis   ~  May 6, 2010 11:54 pm

[18] yeah. isn't it that michael saunders kid? i think he came over in the cliff lee trade, but i'm not positive. i thought they called him up to replace 'bored game' (milton bradley). but i could be wrong. usually am! : )

21 thelarmis   ~  May 6, 2010 11:56 pm

[19] yes. very very true. and i think you, me & mr. ok are all around the same age, so we had some fine fine teams to watch as little ones in the late 70's, even if we didn't fully know understand what we were seeing!

22 thelarmis   ~  May 6, 2010 11:58 pm

[19] ya know what's been one of my very favorite parts about following the Yanks the past half-dozen years or so is?

Bronx Banter !!!

: )

23 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 7, 2010 12:18 am

[22] I came in later but agree, last few years with BB has been great fun!

AND, with this comment I get the coveted #23 :)

24 williamnyy23   ~  May 7, 2010 12:25 am

[21] The first season I really remember was 1982, so I have definitely appreciated the current run of success. Growing up, I used to watch this video called "The 10 Greatest Moments in Yankee History" and be so envious of the team's past. The video ended with a montage set to "Up Where We Belong", and it would really make me sad!

25 williamnyy23   ~  May 7, 2010 12:27 am

[22] Definitely...I don't really think of BB as a blog, but rather a community.

26 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 7, 2010 12:29 am

[24] "Up Where We Belong"...!!! Oh man, we are children of the 80s...yikes...

btw, I saw the Damon steal the other day again..I think that joins the list of Greatest Moments in Yankees History! I'll never forget yelling at the screen "Where are you going?!?!" Only to see him glide into 3B with no one around...

27 williamnyy23   ~  May 7, 2010 12:35 am

[26] There was something so poignant about seeing those highlights set to the lyrics of that song. I see the video is available used on Amazon. I am going to order a copy. I also loved the old record return to glory, the story of the 1977 Yankees, which was narrated by Phil Rizzuto. My grandfather gave me that record and I probably listened it to every day for a year.

The Damon steal is definitely a classic play…and I had the same reaction. I was all set to fire off an angry post before I realized how brilliant the play was.

28 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2010 12:37 am

[24] ah, i think mr. ok and i have a few years on ya!

i have a ton of '82 Topps cards at home in NY...

[25] yeah, it's like a "family".

[26] that hella RULED!

29 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2010 12:38 am

8-0 Rays. CC hit his 3rd homer. he never reached the 25/year potential all the pundits predicted for him...

30 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 7, 2010 12:53 am

[27][28][29] I actually remember the 1981 WS clearly..I was 7 and when we lost I don't think I took it well... :(

Rays are damn damn good..it's going to be a dogfight for sure. But first we have to knock those damn Red Sox back a few games after their gift-wrapped sweep of the Angels..

31 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2010 1:05 am

[30] we're the same age. i remember the early WS's, too. i mean, c'mon, you know how freaking precocious i am! ; )

i went to games in 77/78 though too, which helped. so did meeting willie randolph outside the stadium and sharing a room w/ my older brother who idolized reggie, adored the yankees and breathed baseball.

i don't mind having to dog it out w/ the devil fishes. but i fucking vilipend the shit sox. we best win at least 2 of 3 at that disgusting little league field.

32 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 7, 2010 1:22 am

[31] C'mon man, don't you know Fenway is a "gem of a park"? Watching Dustin Pedroia slug 325ft pop-up home runs doesn't excite you?

Did you see there's a new Reggie bio coming out? I'm a sucker for Reggie, will buy it no matter what :)

33 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2010 1:48 am

[32] by 'gem', do you mean 'hellhole'?!

yup, saw the reggie bio. prolly from a link you left here last night, haha!

i plan on buying my brother the josh wilker book for his upcoming b-day...

shit, my favorite drummer is playing w/ corado rusticci in tokyo and i meant to tell you about it. fuck! i actually think it was last month. i'm an asshole. sorry, bro... : (

34 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 7, 2010 2:04 am

[33] Looks like that gig was late April..

Hey, check out my man Albert Vila from Spain http://www.myspace.com/albertvila

Tokyo Jazz Festival 2010 tix on sale too, Sept 3/4/5, right when Mrs. Jazz is due!! Will have to skip this year..

35 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2010 2:10 am

[34] dammit. sorry, bro. i don't think it was a "jazz" gig, but i still woulda liked to have hipped you to it.

i really need to just email you, personally, off the banter... in due time!

gotta log off, can't check the myspace link now. once again - me sorry.

holy wow - CONGRATS on kid #2, that hella RULES!!! you're a lucky man, my friend! : )

i'm sure mr. ok jazz tokyo will be a GREAT big brother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this news just made a somewhat terrible day much better. i'm glad i trudged thru the trenches and made it to 2am to hear about this. really terrific, man. good on ya!!!

36 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 7, 2010 2:18 am

[35] No problems, Bonham! Thanks for the congrats!! Everyone excited, got Jazz 4 Kids cd already set up and ready to go for them both.

Get some rest, prep up for your weekend gigs (you got some, yeah?) and for the coming sweep of the hated BoSox. Salud!

37 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2010 2:22 am

[36] prolly not gonna be here for your reply... but -

yeah, 2 gigs saturday, but still haven't filled in the friday's. this will be the 3rd friday in a row without a gig, and believe me when i tell you the entire trio is in the throes of depression because of it.

remind me to ask you...if you like classical music....?! and would play it for your kids...?! of course, with 2 degrees in Classical Music, you can rest assured i LOVES it!!! : )


38 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  May 7, 2010 2:38 am

[37] Lots of classical! We'll chat about that next time, you got slumber, I got "work" for 2 more hours before Guinness time..

39 thelarmis   ~  May 7, 2010 2:49 am

[38] good! classical, jazz, thrash metal and...turkish fusion!

nope, no slumber. i'm in some pain. just need some beer and to relax in the comfy recliner.

rock on!
