Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
And now... for the Prime Minister, sinister.. Pete N-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hice! (Nice nice nice)
Kick em in the grill, Pete. Props to Jack Curry.
he is on my very short list of somewhat famous people that have been in my bookstore.
Bronx Banter is such a welcome release for me. On any given day, I can read about my beloved Yanks but also catch seemingly disparate references such as 3rd Bass, They Might Be Giants, Lord of the Rings, Rodney Dangerfield flicks, etc.
Here's my YouTube page with everything:
Just click the (View All Videos) link in the 'Videos' box near the top right-hand corner of the page. You'll get a list of 9 videos, 8 of which are the Yankees. They're not quite in order, so pay attention to the numbers before the title of each clip. It goes in order of 01, 02, 03, etc.
now i can watch the randy johnson/kim jones moment over and over.
Great job on the celebration clips, Pistol Pete.
I realized something about the celebration. Cynics can smirk all they want about how scripted they think the celebration looks, but I see differently, it looks like they are genuinely happy. While winning a division series and championship series is great, I think clinching the division is second only to the World Series win for these guys. It's cathartic, releasing the stress of an entire season, a season where many key players lost serious time to injury, a season where lots of people were hoping that this was the year the Yanks fell short. They didn't fall short, and it was thanks to a few players who have never been to the playoffs before. And those players are the ones who are living it up in those clips. I don't find anything "rehearsed" or "old" about it, especially watching Melky Cabrerra and Robby Cano jump around.
Speaking of which, where's that pic, Chyll Will? I need a new desktop!
Anyone else find this funny? Jason Giambi: "I'd do anything it takes to win a World Series."
