The Fireworks Are Lame
I really think the fireworks are over the top. Honestly. Imagine if we had some crazy circus number every time there was a Red Sox homer at Fenway. Or if balloons and confetti were launched from Hood blimp or something. It's very triple A. Like that Comerica tiger roar I hate. It's like mocking the opponent or whatever.
So, Mo and I came up with a good idea (speaking of childish). We were discussing that Sesame Street skit I love with Grover as the waiter (I blogged about it in my old cyber crib) and how much the blue faced puppet with the mustache looks like Remy.
So, wouldn't it be cool if they (I don' t know, the muppet makers) created Rem and Don muppets that could spend a night or a portion of the night in the booth, mouthing along to the actual commentary? I'm thinking that this would only be appropriate during one of those pointless end of September games, when we've already clinched the title and we're just playing for fun. And then, maybe the actual Wally could come in, too, and it would be a muppet extravaganza. They could easily use the Janice muppet (guitar player from The Muppet Show) as Michelle Damon, like if they *enhance* her a bit. Renteria also has a sort of muppet-like face and Clement definitely does, so, like Michelle, they wouldn't have to dig around much too find some muppet look-alikes in the warehouse. That's a job that would give me great satisfaction. I think I will volunteer.
So, we just took the lead. 5-4. Cool.
