Potent Notables
Friday, June 29, 2007
The Yanks finally returned to their own familiar stomping grounds today to play the A's, and yours truly trekked out to the Bronx to watch what I hoped would be their first win in 7 days. Luckily they did not disappoint, shaking up the status quo by actually grabbing and maintaining the lead for longer than half an inning! I failed yet again to acquire a home run ball or hit Farnsworthless over the head with a frying pan, but a good time was still had. Interested? Here's what went on tonight.
  • Unlike the last game I went to, I attended this game in the company of another human being. Michael from www.bostonsucks.net was kind enough to take pity on the poor friendless Yankees Chick and offered me a ticket. As a token of my appreciation, I implore all of you to go buy one of his shirts.
  • This was my first experience sitting in the infamous Section 39, and now that I've experienced it I don't see how I could ever sit anywhere else! The cheering, the chanting...It was like watching the game with a bunch of rowdy friends. If I had friends.
  • Apparently "suck" is an inappropriate word in Yankees Stadium (and not just in the dirty context you are thinking of, get your mind out of the gutter). A chant of "box seats suck" was incited by a Bleacher Creature and he was promptly removed from the stadium; later, some hooligans sang "S-U-C-K" instead of "YMCA" and one of them was kicked out as well. According to the handsome Irish cop (complete with sexy accent!) manning the area near me, some pc-nazi (see what I did there? That is clever, don't try to deny it) wrote a letter complaining that the word is offensive. Blimey!
  • The cheese fries I so enjoyed last time were nowhere to be found anywhere in the vicinity of the bleachers. I could probably make the same thing at home with a bag of frozen french fries and some Velveeta, but where is the fun in that?
  • Moose looked better than he has all season. He's spent the first half of the season right on the brink of my "out" list, but he pitched splendidly and gave the bullpen a rest. If Farnsworthless wasn't so worthless Mariano could have pitched just the 9th, but having to get the extra out in the 8th didn't prove too taxing.
The only downside to the day (aside from the lack of cheese fries) was the fact that Texas failed to beat Boston. Why won't they just lose like I asked them to?

    Great to see the yankees finally get back into the W column. Glad you got to go to the game. I'm in Alabama, so yeah... I didn't make it ;). By the way, when you write new blogs posts, go over to BeTheRef.com and post a link to your story, and hopefully get a few extra readers. Take care and keep up the great blog! :)

    I find it interesting that there are actually rules and codes of conduct in New York based on how you can and are expected to act, yet you can do whatever you want in Boston, including telling everyone they suck and wearing T-shirts that say, "Jeter Has AIDS."

    You really need to get to Farnsworth. Watch the highlights from last night's Giants game and learn a few moves from that fan who wormed his way onto the field to shake hands with Barry Bonds.

    Hey Chickers!

    How'd that game work out for ya today?

    Should have been a no hitter.

    That's what your shitty team deserves!

    That pic of you in your Stankers shirt rocks!

    It would rock even more if it was a Red Sox shirt!

    Have a long hot boring, losing summer!!!!!

    I heard during tonight's sox game that Proctor was so pissed after the game today (another loss...) that he took nearly all his equipment on the field and burned it?! mannnn there's a serious mutiney about to take place!!!

    If you agree to actually Farnsworth with a frying pan, I will supply you with a ticket and said frying pan!

    So "suck" isn't allowed but "Why Are You Gay" instead of YMCA is fine?

    Yep, good old Yankee Stadium. So much better than Fenway.

    /sarcasm

    Lots of venom here today.

    Anyway, onto the details:

    The funny thing is the Red Sox have lost five out of six and are on pace to witness a decrease in total runs for the third consecutive season, yet it's not going to make much of a difference if a) their pitching continues to keep them in every game and b) the Yankees continue to suck.

    Proctor's bonfire yesterday was embarassing. As if his equipment is the problem. No, Scottie, your lack of control is the problem. The bipolar offense is enough of a headache, but the bullpen leading the league in walks is beyond inexcuseable.

    I think Cashman needs to stop taking chances on these hard-throwing, Rick Vaughn clones who can't find the strike zone. I've always advocated guys who can bring the heat, but not if they don't throw strikes.

    Proctor's problem is overuse, plain and simple. Torre doesn't know how to manage a bullpen.

    And look out for the Angels. Red Sox will not beat them in the playoffs.

    hey, Mikey, your idea of what's allowed at Fenway is wrong. That stuff flew about 5 years ago; now, no Yankees Sucks shirts allowed, you get tossed for swearing, you get tossed for throwing balls on the field, you get tossed for pretty much everything. They've really tightened up on that stuff, for real.

    Also, A-Rod's wife's shirt? Wow...

    I have bleacher seats for all the Sunday games in Section 43, so I know your pain regarding the food and drink available out there.

    I have never had them because they look good and disgusting at the same time, but the nachos doused in cheese and chili seem to be very popular in the bleachers, as well as the lemonade where they throw that whole lemon in there. Can't beat the ballpark hot dog though.

    I didn't realize they cleaned up their act at Fenway, Matthew. That's good to hear. As anyone who reads my blog knows, I'm not easily offended, but even I get uncomfortable hearing or seeing profanity in public depending on who I'm with. I mean, I wouldn't want to be with my mother at a game when the guy in front of me is yelling, 'Fuck you, Jeter! You fucking suck!' It's just awkward. So are offensive T-shirts, which is why A-Rod's wife should be ashamed of herself. How old is this woman? Common sense should've kicked in by now. It's hard to view her as a sympathetic figure when she does stupid shit like this. They should've made her cover up the shirt just like they do to everyone else at the stadium who wears something offensive.
