Plus I hear you couldn't hit a curveball.


I actually can, but I spend very little time with baseball. Most of my time is spent helping football players make great plays and getting touchdowns. Their celebrations are touching and to be honest with you, I am a bit of an ego-maniac... I love the praise and attention.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

You're responsible for picking her. That counts for something.


Sometimes people wander into the showroom, survey the options, and ask the salesman/new best friend, 'Tell me about this magnificent mechanical horse named... Pinto'.

Who is not in the lineup.

Again. But because NL park, right?

This is kinda why I don't get into the minutia of the game in threads. I almost never see things the way the majority does.

I just tune out Bremer. Figuratively by just not hearing him. Or literally by muting him.

Works for me.


Dick never bothered me much, but the last few minutes of listening to him, and Roy babble on about open stadiums is making me want to open a vein.

Dude, are you naturally funny, or do you just bring it out in game threads?

Honestly... It's a tough job with a unique skill.

It's tough to talk for three hours. It's a slow game and the action is primarily routine. You are almost guaranteed to say something pointless and repeat phrases.

Yeah... Bert has always been a drinking game... It's Dick who has gone down hill during the team's horrendous slide...

They are just white noise to me unless I decide to listen actively.

But ugh, this one is not looking good.

If I worked on the same office, I'd never accomplish anything but chuckle and get fired. It would be short lived.

I'm pretty sure I got on stage at some point, because my fingers are killing me.

I'm a bit fed up with Mauer. Tired of hearing "he'll be fine" and "he'll get his." He's a go-zillionaire and he is not driving in runs. Get your tail in gear! Tired of hearing "keep your approach the same" and all that baloney. Drive in some runs and make a difference. I would trade him but know one would take his contract. Frustrated.....

Sucks that no one was on base during his first two doubles. I agree.

This game has sort of sucked, but I think the Twins are gonna win this sucka. 9th inning heroics straight up!

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.
