THERE'S ONLY ONE OCTOBER!!!!!!!!!!! Just thought you should know. It's cold in Boston, so I have my
parent's apartment's basement fire on. That's a lie but I'm 4 beers in, so it could be coming soon. BTW I think 4 beers is my optimum blogging capacity.
Anywho, enough of my background....how about you (a/s/l?)? I'm in on a Friday night to watch Sports and the awesomeness that is Buck McCarver. I'm a little late to the party so if something has already been said let me know. I'll be in this space sporadically throughout the night.
(As always, I thank The Sports Hernia for that photo. I can't get over Joe Buck's Le Tigre pose)
"And that's from our friends TBS"- Joe Buck
Aww look who's making nice!
Tim McCarver revisits the keys to the game in a smooth and calculated fashion (it took 3 minutes to say a 10 second statement)
"I don't know about Joe Buck making nice, but what I do know is that he has the tallest, most towering head I've ever seen. That's simply an incredibly tall head."- Anon
He has to store all of that Sports
knowledge and insight ego somewhere Anon. (You set em up I'll knock em down)
"When it comes to Manager of the Year the reason I think Wedge will rate the Edge is because his payroll is twenty third....Terry Francona is second."- Ken Rosenthal
"On the otherside in the other dugout almost redefinding....redefining....this Indians lineup really pounding out hits..."- Buck
"You can't quarrel with either one getting the nod."- Buck
Wow...was that an all-around shitshow. Here's the thing though, at least Rosey and Bucks tried for an opinion about Manager of the Year.....McCarver.....nope.
"I think Joe Buck needs to say Manny being Manny a couple more times. Apparently catching a fly ball is Manny being Manny."- Simon
What if the Yankees were playing the Sawx tonight? What name would Joe say more....A-Rod or Manny? Discuss amongst yourselves.
Eric Wedge owns a Batting Cage outside of Boston....hard hitting reporting from Tim McCarver that was passed to him on a post-it from an intern from Somerset. Excuse me.....Summmmahhhhhsettt.
It's Finger Lickin' Good by the Beastie Boys coming back from the break? That's being turned into a YouTube clip. How ridiculous was that?
"I am picturing Joe in a batting cage, looking all tough and hardass, adjusting his watch...And sucking, and maybe pulling a muscle in his sunken chest."- Hollywood Wags
Drink every time HW gets mad at Buck.
"I believe that's Steven King's son next to him the fellow with the black beard....He does not write under the name King.....I think."- McCarver
"2-2 pitch is fouled third base side. Joe Hill."- Joe Buck
"Joe Hill! I think that's right. Steve Horn our director of information right on the ball as always a huge Steven King fan of Steve."- McCarver
OH GOD I MISSED YOU FOX BASEBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Smiles...and singles...and Red Sox...and dreadlocks..and smiles" (Via Kyle)
Just kill me now please.
"Did anyone catch McCarver talking about the Red Sox playing the White Sox in the 2006 Playoffs?"-Kyle
I wish I did.....because THAT'S NOT RIGHT!
"Halfway through the game and Joe has been solid in my estimation. McCarver, not so much. But still better than the TBS crew."- Anon
Really? I just can't listen to Buck at all.....I just laugh at McCarver.
MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES! Nice.
"Did anyone else miss the McCarver cackle?? (In best Terry Bradshaw voice) - Joe Buck, you funny!! Over/under - Ben Affleck shots this series (set at 7 1/2)"- Anon
Joe Buck brings up A-Rod to the Red Sox....you know....just because.
CC's hat looks
"If there was ever to be a buddy cop TV show/film of Buck and McCarver, "Smug and Senile" would be a great title."- Kyle
We've got an early leader in the Clubhouse for comment of the night. You degenerates are making my night BTW. Who's drinking with me everytime Joe Buck is smug? POWER HOUR!
"Jason Patric would have to be on that show, he and Joe seem to enjoy each other's designer-stubbled company."- Hollywood Wags
Oh man....I don't care who you are.....
"Clam Chowda....Alright!"- Tim McCarver
"You guys can quit slobbering over FOX & the crew any time now....these man crushes are killing me... It's an 8-1 blow out...If it was TBS...you'd be killin' 'em"- keveekev
What are you reading dude? I'm so confused. Am I actually praising FOX while trying to type out horrible things??? They're in my brain!
"A fly ball, a souvenir, a smile, an RBI, a strikeout, a smile."- Buck, are you just looking at things in the room and saying you love them? I love lamp."- Tom
Oh Tom stepped up the game! Nice!!!!
All American Rejects is played....OMDQ thinks this came out 5 days ago.
"Maybe it's time to flip over to ESPN and catch the wit and wisdom of Chris Spielman"- Anon
As you wiiiiiiiish!
Holy crap......perfect timing. Anon I love you. Brandi Chastain ripping on Spielman....and I get the video? I would be nothing without you.
Holy shit....Chris Spielman just said that his daughter can only get the autographed Soccer ball if she benches 120 lbs!
"Jason left the trap door open and it squirted. Sometimes you don't get the glove down far enough." - TM (Via S2N)
"You guys whine when the announcers stuff up, but at least 2 of you have completely misquoted them. He said Gonzalez was as good as there is at short not Lugo."- Anon
I'm sorry....I apologize A Gone is a great individual Ms. Gonzalez.
"I preffered the Fox Producers joke to the Mrs Gonzalez one"- Anon
I work on a delay Anon.....it's Friday and I'm exhausted. You win round one my friend....
"Julio Lugo as good as there is at short"- Joe Buck
HOLY SHIT! Joe....I don't even watch Baseball and I know he sucks. I looked it up.....17th out of all starters in the majors. None better my ass.
Redacted. If you're Bill Simmons and/or Dane Cook I HAVE to know!!!
"A little Beck for Josh Beckett."- Buck
I'm actually enjoying FOX's music selection. Good stuff.
"JD Drew's younger brother is the shortstop for the Arizona Diamondbacks. And boy is he young."- Tim McCarver (Via Anon)
That's just wrong. Okay I'm jumping this sinking ship. I was bested by Bill Simmons on a fielding percentage comment and this game is over. I'll see you all for the Pam Ward Chronicles tomorrow.
