Boston -- Classic or Dirty Water?

All this talk about Philly and Baltimore, christ two of the worst teams in all of baseball,

Um, the Phillies and the Orioles have won World Series in my lifetime. Which is more than can be said for the Red Sox. Another plus for the Phillies and the Orioles: when their ballparks get run-down and go to seed, they tear them down and build new ones. (same criticism goes for the Cubs, too)

and oh yeah those beloved Yankees and Mets really tore it up this year.

At least the Yankees made it to the playoffs. And I hate the Mets, so I'm probably just as happy as you are that they sucked (and will continue to suck).

yep, they have one champioships in our lifetimes. but i think the sox have a better chance of winning one before either of those two teams do. Granted if the Phils get Thome, then it gets interesting. But their pitching staff does nothing for me. Neither does the Red Sox staff for that matter. When John Burkett is your number 3, there is plenty reason to worry. Ugh I hate being a Boston sports fan. Although my Bruins are tearing it up this year.

Yeah, but you could have been living in your pad and getting your $20 worth of those few minutes of rent.

explain this "getting $20 to live in my pad for a few mintues"
paying rent doesnt bother me.

Ha ha, you have a local news reporter named Joe Shortsleeve. This is like having a weatherman with the given name "Storm."

I had fun, although I kept driving around in circles at the junctions of Route 1, I-95, 278(? -- the road that goes to Marblehead/Beverly) and 114 each time I tried to go from anywhere. It was the Blair Witch project of driving ("AIEEE!! We were just here!!) But now I understand why New Englanders give such strange directions: There is no such thing as a plain left turn, right turn, or a street that keeps its same name past more than a few lights. "Curl around right" is a valid and useful direction. And Dunkin' Donuts really is a very convenient landmark.

I think Mary would like Salem Willows. Skee Ball has gone up to 25 cents from a dime but it's still fun.

Whether Boston's classic or dud, it's never hard to remember why people hate Yankees fans.

YEA! that is the awesomest comment ever!!

We're not really disproving the "Yankees fans are all assholes" theory here, are we? Anyway, I'm gonna come vomit on Fenway!!!!!!!!!!

Ally-zay, Friday, 17 October 2003 03:40 (10 years ago) Permalink

yo, this outburst would've been NOTHING compared to the outburst had it been the Phillies that kicked Sox ass. that would've been world war IV!!

yo ally i may have enough amtrak bonus miles to pay for you, tom and others TO GO TO BOSTON AND DESECRATE FENWAY PARK!!

isn't that better than a stupid lobsterita?

Little Big Macher (llamasfur), Friday, 17 October 2003 03:42 (10 years ago) Permalink

And most Red Sox fans would be doing the same thing if the tables were turned; New Yorkers are just more competent at being assholes.

Tep (ktepi), Friday, 17 October 2003 03:42 (10 years ago) Permalink

I just don't like Boston! I'm actually a Mets fan!!! You should totally get Tom and his friends to come, they'd really like pissing on Fenway.

I like Fenway. Sox Suxors, but Fenway is charming

I am doing the holiday singing thing again but because I'm crap I don't remember which dates I'm singing. Tix go on sale last week of October; I want to say the 27th but check http://www.bso.org to be sure.

in visiting Boston, we'd have all the grace charm and respect of the Goths and the Vandals invading Rome!

This reminds me of the "Cradle of Filth visit the Vatican" story.

Dude, seriously, let's go to Boston. Mid-November?

actually, if this thing can wait till December ... 'cause the bills play the patriots on 12/27.

I'll probably be out of town that week!! Argh.

mid-November is ok, then (other peoples' schedules pending of course)

Ha ha, Dan was right -- I was much more charitable in my assessment of the area when visiting in the summer. Usually I would say Boston is full of pretentious, racist assholes and Fenway is an overrated dump. But I was tooling around the North Shore at that time, not driving through downtown Boston, which is perpetually under construction and the signs say "DETOUR: bridge" when they mean "tunnel" and vice versa. David Raposa and Chris V., you know I love you guys, but in the main, Boston has the most fickle, bitter, fair-weather sports fans in America and I cannot stand them.

Anyway, the following comment of Tad's has just come to my attention:

Even if we had won the game I guarantee we would have found something to complain about. Its our nature. THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE MISERABLE.

Chris V. (Chris V), Friday, 17 October 2003 16:51 (10 years ago) Permalink

Felicity, I think he wants to go piss on Wrigley next, basically.

Ally-zay, Friday, 17 October 2003 16:51 (10 years ago) Permalink

all right, i've not been to wrigley stadium myself so maybe lumping them in with fenway was presumptuous. (the old comiskey park, on the other hand).

anyway, i've gotten wiser since i posted that comment and the Vet (dump that it is) is now slated to be torn down ... so i can see why bosox fans would be attached to Fenway.

Little Big Macher (llamasfur), Friday, 17 October 2003 16:52 (10 years ago) Permalink

i will gladly pee on U. Chicago, though -- evil bastids that gave the world Milton Friedman and John Ashcroft!

Little Big Macher (llamasfur), Friday, 17 October 2003 16:53 (10 years ago) Permalink

I hate Fenway. Yeah its a classic ballpark, but its a filthy uncomfortable dump.

Chris V. (Chris V), Friday, 17 October 2003 16:54 (10 years ago) Permalink

then my point still stands (at least wr2 fenway).

Little Big Macher (llamasfur), Friday, 17 October 2003 16:55 (10 years ago) Permalink

I still don't understand why Tad wants to tear down Wrigley Field. Oriole Park or Camden Yards or Cal Ripken Jr. Shrine or whatever it's called is modeled on Wrigley. It's the best place in the whole world!

(x-post ha ha, Tad in Momus "haven't seen it, actually" moment :) )

felicity (felicity), Friday, 17 October 2003 16:55 (10 years ago) Permalink

yeah, but i admit when i am wrong ... unlike mr. currie (sometimes!)

still, the orioles and the phillies got outta their respective dumps relatively quickly. what's the red sox's excuse? it isn't as if they don't have the money, you know!

Little Big Macher (llamasfur), Friday, 17 October 2003 16:58 (10 years ago) Permalink

The bitter, terrible, fairweather fans like the fucking place.
