Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Yanks got a bad case of the blues this morning. Nothing to do but hope for the best while we wait to hear word on Joba Chamberlain's shoulder. And iffin it gets real dark fuh ya, make like Jimmie and bust a yodel.
I also sense that if we were to go around singing songs like that now, we'd end up in Guantanamo quick, fast and in a hurry...
All in all, a very surreal night. Fingers crossed real tight for Joba's shoulder.
I've never really been to Texas, just stopped through the Dallas airport a few times. I would like to visit though. I like their chuzpah if nothing else. Plus, I wanna get me some of that good time barbeque, man.
But ms oct, if I'm not mistaken we have already deprived Canada of statehood, and they still have a team and we still have to go play there.
actually my grandma and aunt live in dallas and have lived there for about 20yrs or so after leaving london.
and i'm going there in a couple of weeks - they do have some good barbeque - different from the deep south but good
imma gonna have to skip tonight's game.
Montreal > Toronto
nicely played ...
I hear that Zoolander is warming up on the catwalk.
Hope my inner redneck isn't showing too much here, but I would strongly recommend Lynyrd Skynyrd's cover of "T for Texas" as well. It's on their live record ("One More From the Road"), and they really reimagine it with some killer Steve Gaines countryfried pickin'. Great stuff.
Also, Alex doesn't drink, remember? So he'll be happy to get the BBQ in the dry town!
Finally, I want Robinson Cano to demonstrate how to get justfair and standuptriple together in one play. Tonight, please.
The early word is that his muscle tightened up due to a combination of the blistering heat (I sat in that heat the night before, and yeah, it's a huge factor) and fatigue. It's the latter that's most worrisome given Chamberlain's switch of roles. While he built up his arm strength, no one has any idea how the fatigue will be affected by the shape of his season. He's headed back to New York for tests, so we'll know more soon, but early reports and sources tell me that things look relatively positive, based both on the pain's location, and on his reaction. Expect the Yanks to be ultra-conservative, and for Chamberlain to miss a start at least. We'll know more after the images ...
Also, I'm neither a frustrated author or ball player, I'm a professional porno star/fighter pilot, so there.
Finally, I like Texas. Everything is bigger there.
Also, we employ sinister code names just to make sure we're extra-special safe from the retribution of the subjects of our puerile ravings.
Cool! I'm a cowboy astronaut millionaire, meself...
That's the only blairkar Google was able to find (and its an old auction, so it was cached on July 27). Well, someone in the UK as well, but I get the feeling that's not you, folks in the UK generally having more dry wit and all.
Just wondering . . .
Lighten up, buddy. Nobody around here is seriously anti-Texas (although I'm still a little upset about the 1965 Orange Bowl ;-). Heck, the people around here even tolerate this old country boy from Alabama so I'm sure a Texan won't be a problem. It's pretty easy to get along with people around here, just remember Patrick Swayze from Roadhouse: "Be nice".
