Today gives the old guys.
Enjoy, y’all and:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!
I'll never forget taking my two young daughters to their first Old Timers Day. I believed that it was absolutely imperative for them to be able too see my all-time idol, the Mick, and Joe D. in person
Peaches En Regalia playing at the Stadium - can't get much cooler than that
Will yogi put in an appearance? I mean golf-cart style of course!
Old Timers Day!!!
I love Old Timers Day!
"Once you get loose, you're done for the day."
God, this is fun!
Nice hit, Willie!
(God, this is fun.)
God, he's such a goofball!
It's so nice to see everyone!
Cone's at 3rd? lol....
 It's a hoot, isn't it? The whole thing is a hoot! Vaudeville meets nostalgia meets baseball.
I love the cameramen being on the field, reminds me of the old days when I played.
 It's always entertaining. : )
Wow, Goose is tot a plaque too?
Hideki v. Reggie!
Um, when did old timers start being younger than me?
God, John Montesfusco.
Wasn't he called "The Count?"
 that's my buddy Ed Alstrom on organ!!!
He's the freakin' *MAESTRO*
Well this is not good.
I'll take that.
Oh, FOR FUCK'S SAKE!
Nice, uh oh
I remember the time I got Andre Robertson to autograph the under-bill of my Yankees cap. Unfortunately, the signature was washed away by perspiration in a matter of weeks.
But I remember him standing there, carefully signing my cap.
One of my first memories is of Willie Randolph signing an autograph for me outside the stadium. I remember him being super nice and cordial. My mom had a light blue envelope in her pocketbook. Willie carefully signed his name in his excellent cursive and wrote #30 underneath. We tacked it to a bulletin board, but I don't think it made the move from Queens to LI. I have a vice memory of it, however! : )
Oh yeah, what happened to that car?
I remember the Mets had some (fuck) little go cart to bring their relievers in while the Yanks had some classy pinstriped ride.
That was nice, with Goose.
Vivid, not vice. Damn iPhone...
Damn Schoop : /
So, uh. Joe couldn't move Derek down in the order, right? He could bat eighth or something.
Tie. It. Up. Please.
oi oi oi. how goes it folks?
What venue were they just talking about on YES?
Fucking terrible. Bollocks!
 That's a triple oi! Myron Cope would be proud. : )
 not exactly what I was thinking but that works!
This fecklessness is wearing thin.
oh my. impressive catch.
 I know, I missed it! I heard the whole little story but failed to catch the name of the venue!
 damn. I'm actually thinking of watching the game replay because i'm curious.
Has anyone been to shea stadium in Brooklyn? I was really confused that these small bands I liked were playing at Shea stadium at first.
i saw the Who and the Police at Shea. around '82, '83
Now, where's that confounded Score Truck?
 I saw the Stones there in I think 89 or 90. But this is a small venue in Brooklyn apparently. It was very confusing to hear about bands playing there.
 i wish i saw led zep live. i wasn't alive though...
This is maddening the fuck out of me.
 yeah same here. would have been great.
 oh yeah, i saw them there, too. steel wheels tour, with living colour opening. an african drum troupe, too.
This game is excruciating.
This is killing me.
 i've only been watching for about an inning and i agree.
Efficient inning. Tanaka needed that.
What the hell is wrong with this Tanaka guy? We just can't keep the lead with him on the mound.
hurry up and win guys!
 seriously. For a pitcher he sure scores very few runs.
Can't believe we're getting shut out.
 You can't?? You should be able to by now. You've had plenty of practice.
wow lame lame lame.
Ah, excellent. I was tired of leaving runners on base every inning. Good work this time guys!
Very tempted to just give up on this game and go watch the orphan black season finale.
Two feckless pop ups after hitting the ball well yesterday. Bleh.
I was so traumatized as a kid when Thurman Munson died.
shit. not good.
He's going to get out of this unscathed.
But it won't matter because we can't score a fucking run.
 me too. still am...
just hung my thurman plaque in my den the other night : )
Great, now it's 200-0
 So weird, I thought precisely that: "Now it feels like it's 200-0."
 Nice. I had a framed signed pic but it seems to have disappeared over the years. I think maybe during my divorce or something. I think my parents divorce sucked up my Nettles jersey years ago too. Both make me sad.
At least Toronto lost. Still, I want to win this for Tanaka.
 a year or two ago, i went on a big time thurman baseball card buying spree. made me feel good : )
I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GET A FUCKING HIT!!!! SOMEONE, ANYFUCKINGONE, GET A FUCKING HIT!!!
 sweet. I should find a replacement munson item for the rec room.
btw, I think you'll appreciate this in particular, I picked up a flexidisc the other day. I don't think i'd seen one in 20 years.
Thank you, Ichiro!
(He should be batting second.)
Come on, Brett, fucking PLEASE!!!
 Regardless of outcome, Gardy might be the man for this spot. I just feel better with him batting than with anyone else.
although, that change up is messing brett up big time.
Oh my God.
Shoot me now.
oh feck it. that sucked.
I was wondering how we'd avoid scoring this time. My bet was swinging strikeout, but easy groundout was a close second.
well, fuck this. good day all.
that was effin ridiculous. Not even close.
I want to see how they call this because that was bush league.
This is too much.
This game is just killing me.
OK, looks like I missed something. Replay?
He was no where near the bag. Bullshit call.
 the runner sliding into third base was way off the base which is why Kelly threw it away. It can't be replayed but there has been umpires conferencing and managers arguing. I really don't like it because he could have hurt Kelly the way he did that. Nobody would expect him to be where he ended up.
This game is some kind of horse shit.
ok gone for real. Can't stomach this. good day folks.
 Smart man. Cheers.
Oh, for FUCK'S sake!!
Jesus, do you see this shit?
Whirled Cup in an hour. I like the US's chances against Portugal better than the Yankees chances here. And I don't like our chances against Portugal.
Sure, why not give up a first big league home run.
Oh yeah, Sori's on this team.
One run in 18 innings. Horseshit offense.
US has had chances
Almost at 55
A second goal! Missed it, stupid laundry
Damn you Renaldo
That last Por goal kicked me in the stomach.
But, let's face it, the tie is what we needed. Now tie the Germans and go through, or even lose by a goal or two and our guys are in good shape.
 (By the way, it's Ronaldo. Renaldo is the retired Brazilian.)
