    October 4, 2006 The off-season is 3 days old…

    Posted by Christine E. at 1:59 pm in General Comment (1)

    And ALREADY I am climbing the walls without baseball…and I still have 4.5 months to go….I know, know, I could watch the playoffs, but watching the Skanks and the Red Sox play makes me nauseous, so I certainly cannot watch another team and the Skanks play…

    Ya know what I am hoping for? That A-Fraud totally melts down into a crying, drooling, basket case with like 3 hits in the postseason…now THAT would entertaining…

    Most of the predictions/reports I have been reading a naming the Skanks as the team to beat..UGH….I may be moving to Boston and living in my friend Paul’s driveway if that happens…It’s horrible here…as I mentioned before, the Skanks AAA team is coming here to replace the Phillies club we had…and people are SO excited…just about everyone I know around here is a Skankee fan…and probably 75-80% of them are the horribly annoying and obnoxious ones…..I have actually had people whom I know and NEVER speak with make it a point of saying something about how the Skanks prevailed this year–How lame is that? “I don’t want want talk with you any other time, only to be an annoying, obnoxious ass–le..” Now, to be fair, I do have a few friends who are Yankees fans with whom I can actually carry on a legitimate conversation–but how annoying a Skankee fan is is directly proportional to their IQ and how much of a bandwagoner they are…Do you really think these “fans” actually cheered for this team in the 80’s when they NEVER won? Yeah….sure….right….

    File this under the ” Someone needs to take Stupid Dan’s job” Department: Probably could get a trained monkey to do it better than him, after that “the Skankees are wonderful” article in today’s Globe “Try to look past the pinstripes, Red Sox fans: You want your kids to grow up to be like Derek Jeter.” Uh, HELLO???? W……T…….F…..?????? NO WAY! Why on EARTH would I want my child to grow up to be a Metro sexual pencil necked precious arrogant overrated…I cannot even think of a proper pejorative for him! UGH….

    While I am disappointed about Papa Jack and Dave Wallace’s contracts not being renewed, I am not super surprised…after this season, heads had to roll–and where did we fail most significantly? Hitting and pitching… I hear that Indian Director of Player development, John Farrell is a definite possible for the pitching coach role…

    For some amusement, check out Bill Simmons, who is doing running diaries of the postseason games–only palatable way to watch them…

    Go “any team playing the Skankees!” Whooo Hooo!!

      I’m with you. And today by 4 we’ll know if the Yanks are as unreal as they seem. Moose against a Tiger. Growwwwl. Whimper. That’s the Tiger’s post game comments followed by the Yankees’.
