The greatest game
<p>Several people have emailed me and expressed surprise that I have not had anything to say about The Yankees-Red Sox series. Truth is, I’m having a ball. I posted a brief blurb about how much fun this series was, and then I accidentally deleted it while culling some moronic attempts by a porn site spammer to fill the comments with links to some hot asian bisexual midget bestiality necrophilia voyeurs website. Oops.</p> <p>Honestly, the whole debacle with Zimmer and that hooded asshole Pedro Martinez was rather upsetting. I mean, if Zim came after me, attacking (as he was), I’d have defended myself too. But I’d like to think that I wouldn’t have been so violent about it. OK, OK, Pedro’s all fired up, maybe the adrenaline got to him. But wouldn’t you have felt absolutely awful immediately after you flung a 72 year old man to the ground? He didn’t, and that’s what makes him an asshole. But let’s back up a sec. This wouldn’t have happened if Manny Ramirez wasn’t a total wuss. That pitch wasn’t anywhere near his head, but then again you can’t really fault Manny for missing that fact, since he was ducking before the pitch was halfway to the plate. </p> <p>Whenever I get started on this topic, I get way too emotional. Maybe it’s best if I just refer you to a great <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/playoffs2003/columns/story?columnist=klapisch_bob&id=1637695">story</a> that appeared on ESPN.com today, featuring a couple guys from the Bronx Zoo that speak candidly about what a bunch of pussies the Red Sox are. Of course, they are unable to call them pussies in the article, but Graig & Goose are welcome to do an interview for rumblestrip anytime, where the editing standards are (obviously) far lower. No holds barred.</p> <p>Go Yankees!</p>
