Cone dropping a Sugar Hill Gang reference and now spitting lyrics. Hysterical. Love Cone!

Hughes' location fucking sucks.

7 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2012 1:12 pm

Bleh. I get the feeling the Yankees are just not interested in this game.

8 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2012 1:13 pm

22 thelarmis   ~  Aug 12, 2012 1:54 pm

10-4 at the Rogers center.

23 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2012 1:54 pm

[21] And I was all set to give up on the game and do some yard work.

24 thelarmis   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:00 pm

royales & twinks each take a 3-2 lead.

25 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:06 pm

26 thelarmis   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:12 pm

27 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:13 pm

10-7. Very interesting.
[22] Nice one. : )

28 thelarmis   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:14 pm

yeah Swish!

10-7

and counting...

we need a field goal!

29 thelarmis   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:15 pm

thanks, just fair!

what was the catch i missed?

30 thelarmis   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:18 pm

c'mon andruw!!!

31 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:19 pm

[29] Casey McGehee blasted a high deep fly to left field. The Blue Jays left fielder had a bead on it the whole way, loped back to the warning track, stutter stepped, climbed and snatched it over the wall robbing a 2 run homer. He made it look easy but hot damn was it an awesome catch.

32 thelarmis   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:19 pm

was the hbp on purpose to cano?

33 thelarmis   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:21 pm

[31] damn. (and thanks for the details!)

and fuck on andruw. we could be tied or winning right now...

34 Ara Just Fair   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:27 pm

[33] Video up on MLB.COM already.

35 thelarmis   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:31 pm

and of course the other 2 games are now at 3-3.

speaking of 3's, i'd like the yanks to put up a 3-spot here in the 8th. then win it in the 9th.

but curtis goes down on strikes...

36 thelarmis   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:36 pm

well, crap...

37 thelarmis   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:52 pm

[34] sick catch.

good job(a)

38 rbj   ~  Aug 12, 2012 2:57 pm

Dang. Made it interesting though.
