  • Godzilla already tried...and failed

    A Yankee fan (I wonder who it was?) living in the Franklin Park Zoo, disguised as a gorilla, escaped. Promptly caught, & will be shipped to another zoo, since, with visiting Y fans and college students from NY, we have our quota of unruly gorillas. I believe the name was "Lil Joe".

    Hmmmm, maybe I should suggest the Bronx Zoo. (My second favorite place in NYC, the first being the Museum of Natural History.)

            Don't be silly. Our guys don't toss 72-y.o. Popeyes to the ground. Now if it were Clemens who'd done that ...

            Long story, but I had to post it.

                    • I was at the Zim-Pedro game

                      Sitting in rightfield grandstands, close to home, looking almost straight from home to third; Zim caught my eye when he crossed between Posada & Clemens, he kept dodging around people, I was trying to figure out who he was after.. He wove in & out, & Pedro did saw him just in time to put his arms up. Pedro obviously surprised; I was, & I had been watching Zim. Pedro leaned a little back, & moved his arms to the right, using Zim's energy. Pedro's expression was clearly puzzlement. Jim Rice immediately got Pedro, & told him to back to the dugout, & he did. Zim fell over because he had been moving at a full run - for him- which caught my eye in the first place.

                        I figure someone's gotta win, someone's gotta lose. If they want it that badly, they deserve it.

                        Didn't Cleveland and Seattle have one game around the summer of 2002, in which someone scored like 12 runs in about an inning or two to win something like 16-15, preventing a blowout?

                          I'm pretty much past that whole thing. Manny acted like he'd wanted to fight, and Roger practically dared him. The only one who shone on that day was David Ortiz, since he was the only person big enough to manhandle Manny and told him that he wasn't going anywhere!

                          That toon was just in humor, so nothing serious. Of course, if ya wants to make somethin' out of it, my Beantown friend ...

                            Actually that game took place on Sunday, August 5th 2001. I remember because I was watching it until about the 7th inning with Seattle crusing. I shut it off, just as my Mom got the call that my Grandfather had suffered a severe heart attack and died. He was like a second father to me and I cried non-stop for 15 minutes. When I stopped, I put the game back on and found the Indians had rallied to win.

                              Aww Jeez, sorry to hear about your Grandfather. That must be very rough, especially for the younger folks. :o

                              Still, member Jackie42 has a grandson who's contributed infrequently in this forum, and the younger is a Yankee fan.

                                Yes, Ortiz had Manny in a bear hug, I remember thinking it was a good thing Ortiz moved fast, I didn't see him get to Manny. I'm still not sure who took the bat away from Manny; I had a fleeting thought that Clemens could protect himself by throwing at Manny, but Posada was there. Hmmm.. stun tazers with the umps at Sox - Y games?

                                Seriously, with the tensions this year? "UMP TAZERS RAMERIZ" "BOSTON FANS ????". "POSADA TAZERED, YANK FANS ????".
