no. way. 10.20.04

wow. that's all i have to say about the red sox. and those classless yankee fans showing their anger-- oh no, we're not winning? let's throw our cell phones and baseballs on the field! shouldn't have been out that late last night and my eyes are bleary but hey, i think it was worth it.

tonight, it's on.

Problem was that the umps didnt say why they reversed the call. There was nothing displayed on the board and no replay on the screen. So the fans had no idea what was going on, only that we lost a run, jeter was back on first and a-rod was out.

stadiums are funny about their replays; remember the houston minute maid folks showing tavarez losing his shit? i went to a white sox game where bthey showed no replays, b/c the sox were getting beat on. i think they should have shown what happened; it was pretty clear on tv the first time. and still, the fans have to control themselves. stinkin' jersey-ites.

I do believe the REd Sox fans have acted similarly on occasion! Also, what is so wrong with a team's fans vociferously expressing their displeasure. Met's fans would just sulk and go home. And for the NJ thing, Fuck You! Just b/c someone is from NJ doesn't mean they automatically suck. (did I just defend NJ, shit.)

Omigod, I can't even think about school today. My life is consumed by the Red Sox right now. The old guys at the bar we hang out at now give me high-fives and call me a "true fan." Everywhere except for parts of NYC seem to have bars full of Red Sox fans. I am Crazy Red Sox Girl. All hail Papi!

Heather, you did, upon the Sox winning, jump up in our booth and shout "who's your daddy, bitch!" at the television. That is pretty crazy fandom.

Awe, I really wish I could be there to watch the oncoming pile of shit hit the fan tonight. Now Norm and Silver be nice to each other, but on another point Silver does have it that Mets do indeed suck like a little girl. So if you team gets this far then being able to vent is justified to a degree. (Did I just agree with Silver? Shit). But then Norm does have the point that NJ sucks like a drunk Alex.

fans should NOT THROW BASEBALLS AND CELL PHONES. flat out. they should not threaten players nor mar the game with violence. red sox fans are no saints but i understand their pain. they have pain. in baseball, sometimes things do not go your way, making the times when you win big like planets aligning. or michael finding a woman he can sleep with before she gets piss drunk.

you know you don't love jersey and while the mets suck, they would bitch and whine very very loudly. met fans often think they should have a good team without putting in the work. yankee management gets able bodied players and that is worth something. the mets are resigned because their management finds new way to lick their assholes while they should work in concert to put out a winning product.

hetha-- are you freaking out? all hail cro-mag damon!

I wish I could have been in New York, with all my dearest friends, for this most blessed of nights. Now it's up to Clemens to humiliate us. And did anyone notice how Francona has already made the stupidest managerial decision of the World Series, three days before its opening pitch? Why Pedro? Why? Are you kidding me?

But no... No... I will be happy now... happy...

Hey I don't have to get a girl drunk to shag her it's just easier that way! But yes throwing shit is puerile and although I'd prefer NYY to win, the fans are kinda like the pompous assed fuckers who are akin to the dirty scum Man Utd fans here.

*Kringe* I just looked at the NY TImes for the score.

Yes, I'm crazy and I did scream "Who's your daddy now, bitch!" at the television, but at least I'm not rolling over cars in the Fenway or lighting toilet paper on fire in Amherst. Johnny Damon is my homeboy!
