They bleeped me saying "whore!"

[2] =)

Ted's reaction to what you said was priceless, as was the total nonchalance with which you said it.

It reminds me of the fact that when I *do* game chatter on other sites, specifically BBTF, I completely forget that I'm not at the Banter and that other people aren't as completely inured to the fact that most of us swear like sailors at the drop of a hat (or a Girardi pinch-stand there).

3) Well, truth be told, the producer said I could use one curse and we didn't tell Ted about it so we got a genuine reaction. LOL.

Yeah, it's funny, back in 06 I think it was, when we were still at Toaster, the Yanks were losing in the playoffs and a few of the Dodger Thoughts fans came through and were offended by the language. Now, my rules have always been simple. Curse all you want here but don't pick fights with each other and get nasty with each other. But a few guys were really put off by the language. And I answered one of them and said, listen, if you come to a Yankee thread when the Yankees are losing a playoff game and you are offended by the language well, then, you can go fuck yourself.

[4] that fuckin' rules! yeah, i remember that well. i hope it was that jimmy zappala guy, or whatever his name was...

That was hysterical. Well done, AB!

[4] Poifect!

Oh, man, I remember that too. Underdog was a frequenter of Bronx Banter at the Toaster, and he told all of the Dodger Thinkers that we wouldn't bite their heads off or anything. So some of them came trembling in to see what the scary Yankee fans were like.
Jon Weisman had verrrrrry different rules. Lots of them. Dodger Thoughts would sometimes cite rule violations: "Rule 9", or whatever (there was a rule against mentioning no hitters, of course).

Now I feel a little better. But I kind of miss the Toaster.

[1] I saw that monstrosity today. Thing looks like it should be playing La Cucaracha. How many people do you think approved that design? Unbelievable.

Seeing other teams build things like this makes me happy we have the Steinbrenners.

I enjoyed the "rattle their jewelry" crowd remark. It reminds me of the "prawn sandwich" comment that Roy Keane used to describe wealthy Manchester United crowds.

[4] Yeah, I completely remember that post-season. Shell-shocked would be an understatement!

Oh my goodness, B, that was hilarious (and very on point!) (beep), (beep) and (beep), yeah pretty much! Anyone have the stats on who said what the most yet? I bet I know without looking who the leaders are...

13 RIYank   ~  Oct 8, 2011 10:03 am

Will, you just wrote "Oh my goodness."

Just sayin'.

14 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 8, 2011 10:50 am

[13] Wowzers, so I did. I flay myself in repentance. Which you prefer next time:

A. "Oh, Sheeeit!"
B. "Gotdayam!"
C. "Great Googlay-Mooglay"
D. "Oh, Em, Gee!"

Losing a game that should have been won does things to you. Look at poor ol' Jorge? >;)

15 RIYank   ~  Oct 8, 2011 11:13 am

[14] Yeesh.
So, you're a Dodger fan now? Just because of that one loss?

16 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 8, 2011 11:57 am

[15] Hey now, no need to go below the belt. Let's keep this clean, okay?

Hilarious .... what an actor you are AB! :-)
