I am thinking that ChiTown has never had the thrill of starting a game thread and making it sticky, and she could have a civilizing influence.


Ack! Um ... okay ... but I may not do so well on the things to think about ...

I actually almost wanted to move that sewage story to the 'more baseball' forum but i guess it was Twins related since we are playing the A's this weekend.

That's not an out in Oakland.

See, whenever there's a foul ball that ends up a few rows into the seats down either line, Bert inevitably says, "That's an out in Oakland." Only in this case, see, Plou...

oh forget it.

I have every confidence in your ability. I cannot imagine anyone doing as good a job as Brian -- he deserves an award for being funny as hell every time. But before Brian took over, an admin would just post the lineup, add maybe 1 or 2 comments then make the thread sticky.

That lemon sucking avatar would have prevented that home run. Where is Ashbury?

You are quite right. I was distracted from the game for a while and came back too late to make the switch. So, it turns out, her Rallying services are needed after all.

With 2 enemy baserunners, I think that lemon face might be more effective at the moment.

Not your fault. Gardy should have pulled Duensing sooner. Of course, lemon face would definitely have prevented the home run.
