The Out Of Context quote of this week is brought to you by the letter T as in Trin:


Trin: i suggest also writing from the heart first
Trin: just vomit all over the cover letter
And this isn't the context, but it is similar to what I'm currently plotting; Did I tell any of you here on LJ that I emailed the Sports Legacy Institute with a general, hey I'm very interested in concussion research and stuff and are there any volunteer openings up and such? And I got an ACTUAL~! email~! from Chris Nowinski himself (saying no! but still~!)? If I didn't say that, I did now. And if I did say it, I think it bares repeating.

Anyway, I was kind of a bitch last night -- I sent a columnist from the Boston Herald a very cranky 5 AM email saying that even as a person who doesn't live in Boston, I know that the Herald is a pretty okay newspaper and that you should do some GODDAMNED FUCKING RESEARCH if you are going to be writing a baseball column. Jeff is NOT Jered Weaver. I mean it's one thing if a blog gets the two confused but this isn't a fucking blog. And then someone commented to the guy and said, hey that wasn't Jeff, that was Jared, so now the columinist still has it misspelt. I mean, come on. Even if I didn't stalk the Weaver brothers like I do, much like how I know there are two i's in Torii Hunter's name, it's just a thing, you know? Ugh.

Also, in regards to baseball, even though I think Amy is the only (other) one who would remember Phil Coke on my f-list -- but, caruso made a Phil Coke playlist that is AMAZING and just ugggh. Makes me shake my fist at Detroit for having him because he's so far away.

Dontrelle Willis, Josh Beckett, and AJ Burnett walk into a bar -- and the bar burns down )


Anyway, that's where I stopped a couple days ago. Which is cool because yesterday AJ Burnett and Josh Beckett both pitched and were awesome. Beckett came back from his "injury" (both mental and shoulder/arm related I'm sure) and AJ just finally had a good game (because I didn't watch any baseball just to give him the extra cosmic boost yesterday -- the things I do for you AJ).


Instructor: Those people outside are crazy, wearing big ol' leather boots in this kind of heat!
Student: Maybe they're from Texas?
Instructor: Nah, they looked pretty American to me.

Final baseball thing;

MLB.com has an article about how the Mets are failures. .. .... ...... in regards to never having a no-hitter, perfect game or anything else that would be awesome for a pitcher.

The topic in the Mets' clubhouse that day was no-hitters, a topic Mets pitchers discuss from time to time without firsthand knowledge of the phenomenon. It was in the summer of 2005 when Steve Trachsel recalled the six-man no-hitter the Astros had dropped on the Yankees two years earlier. "Is that allowed?" Trachsel asked. Then he answered his own rhetorical question. "Probably not; at least not for us. I don't think we are allowed."

[............]

The Mets, born seven years earlier, were guilty of a greater transgression, turning their backs on the patron saint of the no-no; they traded Nolan Ryan. "It's the Curse of Nolie," David Cone said in 1991 after he had flirted with a Mets no-hitter. "You can't trade that man and not expect some ramifications."
(if you see this a lot, Semagic is being a bitch)

Though I wouldn't mind it just being about my hate for Atlanta.

So. Let's see. Things I loved tonight with the 24-hours of Yankee coverage it seems on YES and/or ESPN:

- Yogi Berra & Whitey Ford telling stories in the broadcast booth. I told my mom to come pick me up from papa's because ESPN's announcers were/are shit and I couldn't take it anymore, I'd rather run home to Suzy's smokers voice (and that's saying a lot). But, Yogi and Whitey together were amazing.

- David Cone and A TAN AND NICE LOOKING Boomer Wells talking nonstop to each other. More BFFEs.

- Johnny Damon not realizing they called him for the lineup and someone having to go into the dugout to find him.

- Joba being RIGHT THERE for the pre-show things and just WATCHING all the legends.

- Pettite, no matter how shitty he's been this year, getting the final start, Mo getting the final close. Awesome.

- Paul O'Neill being the first player to go into the crowd with the bleacher creatures.

- ESPN being awesome when they literally showed the Bleacher's roll-call and Joe "Imma Idiot" Morgan, talking about it to the people at home and not mentioning the last part. And then the cut to the "game" for the last part. AKA: When the chat turns into a big FUCK YOU to the boxed seats <333333.

- Bernie Williams. Like. Bernie Williams. Okay, I have to say more than that. He is one of my favorites, one of my crushes, I thought it was shit what they did to him in his last year (for one thing, they should've had him retired the year before). And then the almost crying. And the pointing to his heart. And MY heart breaking.

- oh cap'n, my cap'n. Derek played hurt. I don't mention it enough but, I love Derek Jeter.

- I can't wait to see the random Yankees parade on the field on my tape. It sounds amazing on the radio.

- Mussina gets his peons to steal dirt for him. God, I love him.

- "Yeah, everyone wants to stick around for awhile. It says so much about the fans here..." - Derek Jeter on the radio.

- Oh God. Mussina just told me that he's been here for 8 years. I can't believe it.

- Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. They are playing "Goodnight Sweetheart" awww.

- Joba's stealing dirt. And and and supposedly his hands are shaking. I want to give him a hug.

- [livejournal.com profile] madlikerya: Derek with tears in his eyes! his circuits are gonna short if he isnt careful about that shit.

- "Thank god for them (the fans)" - Mo.

- Posada, Tino, Derek and Mo took pictures of all four of them together wtih their own cameras so they could have pictures. Aw. My heart.

- Brian Cashman is being talked to too. He said that Tino was at the game yesterday with his family in-cognito in the stands to see a game that way <3.

[Yogi] Berra, a 10-time champion often considered the greatest living Yankee, didn’t really need any more souvenirs—although he said he wouldn’t mind leaving with the final home plate of the ballpark he loved.

“I hate to see it go,” he said. “It will always be in my heart.”

article
So. The announcing team? Is Al Leiter & Cone~!!!!111 .... and Kay, hah, but, yeah. I love Leiter's voice for real, not for the fangirlism reasons that I love Cone's. I've also decided that the reason I like Cone's voice is because he talks like David Wright. Now, let's never discuss that again.

Beckett vs. Joba = awesome.

Awwwwwwwwwwwww. So. Firstly? I love that everyone in Fenway stood up and didn't stop clapping for Papi returning. But? But. Pedro Martinez's dad died of brain cancer (last) week/this week. And, Big Papi has on his helmet "RIP #45" for Pedro's dadddddddy. Awwwwwwwww =/

Wow, Lowell hit an awesome hit off the Wall, but it only was a single. Good job, fake #11 Knoblauch.

moar! )

NEXT FRIDAY IS ANGELS VS YANKEES, dammit Rya! you pick a bad weekend to show up, haahhahhahahaha. <3333333333333333.
