As Skeezy Bastard (aka Johnny Damon) will enjoy his 2nd return to the Fens this evening, it’s time for me to weigh in on the whole “Damon Brouhaha”
Johnny Damon felt he deserved a bigger paycheck and decided to go to the Yankees…..as much as it sickens me and the rest of the Nation, (what the HELL am I going to do with the Johnny Damon jersey hanging in my closet-not to mention his book?? And you think I’m kidding…..) going where he can make more money is certainly understandable – but it’s the WAY HE CHOSE TO GO ABOUT IT….. 10 minutes after he signed, starts talking about the “Yankee way” and how everyone loves him and respects him, and how the Yankee fans are some of the best in the game…and generally bashing everything Red Sox…Fine….But THEN you want us to “understand” and still love and respect you? Because 10 million a year wasn’t enough? And there is NO WAY you should get more a year than our Captain. NONE. And then there is the ad in the paper 2 months after the signing–Disingenuous…..and the whole “everyone on both teams loves and respects each other”– Disingenuous and his bid to get a plane to fly Jeter and A-Fraud, Timlin and ‘Tek home from the World Cup of Baseball…Disingenuous.
If you wanted your standing ovation at your 1st at bat, and wanted people to recognize what you did for 4 years in Boston then you should have SHUT IT, MEATSTICK……you can’t have it both ways….and now, you’re all mad, and have went on record as saying we are ungrateful, and the Yankee fans are better….FINE…. then don’t talk to our press, and don’t talk to us or about us cause YOU ARE DEAD TO ME….
During the debate on “boo vs. cheer”, my position was: IGNORE him……when he came up to bat (and I really liked the hiding out in the dugout until the last minute-pansy) 34,000+ people should have stopped, went silent, and TURNED THEIR BACK ON HIM. Now THAT would have been a beautiful sight to see! And it would have made him crazy…..because Johnny Damon is an attention-whore……and what could he say? “whaaaaa, they ignored me like the skeezy bastard I am?”
And BTW, the next time someone wants to disrespect me by offering me 10 million dollars a year to work for them……you let me know….skeezy bastard
