Something Wicked This Way Comes
Mirabelli ducked out of a state trooper's vehicle (his escort) and jogged into the park in his uniform. I am so amused by that. What a lucky cop, by the way.
Orsillo giggled when he said, "They've changed the chant from Yankees 'aren't very good' to Johnny's 'not very good.'" You know, because Don can't say "suck" on television.
Johnny tried to tip his hat and I just felt bad for him. My God, Johnny, what the fuck are you thinking? Talk about asking for it. Why didn't you just go to the plate and concentrate on hitting? You only made it harder on yourself there. Any other team, Johnny, and you'd still get the love. Any other team! (Wow, the fans actually threw some money down on center field. Seems like an obvious gag, but I didn't even think of that. Good one, bleacher people.) I mean, really, Johnny, you tried to give us some sob story about how Red Sox front office didn't care about you, but the fact is WE DID. WE DID. You made your bed, brother. Johnny whining about getting booed would be like Affleck bitching about the paparazzi. Where there is ying, there is also yang. Remember, Johnny, a lot of the people booing you are going to go back to their one bedroom apartments and continue to live paycheck to paycheck. You get to go to your luxurious hotel or whatever and get a 90 minute massage.
Remy is suddenly the human boo-o-meter. More than once, he offered his opinion as to whether or not there were more boos than cheers. "Definitely more booing" was his final word.
Nice off the end of the bat hit by Papi. Wang has walked 3 batters so far and it's still the 1st inning with 1 out. Whoops, 2 outs. Cairo did the right thing there with the force out. Eh, gotta give "I Can't Believe Manny Robbed Me of a Home Run" some credit on that decision.
Bases loaded and ... Wily Mo, Wily Mo, Wily Mo please get on base. It's all you, Wily Mo. 3-1. Good, good. Ah, crap. At least he hit the ball well and Bubba had to seriously dive to catch it. It wasn't a strike out.
More mindless commentary later. I cannot sit still during these games. They make me nuts.
