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."
Reyes, Keith Hernandez argue on team charter
http://theropolitans.com/2008/07/jose-reyes-and-keith-hernandez-nearly.html

The New York Post reports that Jose Reyes and mustached announcer Keith Hernandez had to be separated on the Mets' team charter on Sunday night.

Fuck. Yeah. Honestly. We know whose side I am for that fight. Reyes should've beaten the black Hair Dye For Men off of his damn head. And then go back to hitting triples and having a better average than most of the Mets. Oh. I'm sorry. That's what he's been doing almost all season and most of last season, right? Right.

"He got his point [across] and I got mine," Reyes, when asked to describe the confrontation, told The Post before he drove in three runs in the Mets' 11-1 victory over the Cardinals last night. "I'm not too happy with the way he's been talking."

Of course, this so far has only been in the Post (and broadcasted on the local NBC sports). So who knows if it's really true, but, I hope it was. Keith has been talking shit about Reyes all season (last season too). And I'm still not all right with Keith's "warrior mentality iz better!" over the Church concussions.

[Poll #1217914]

17 has turned 35
I'm surprised that were still livin'
if we've done any wrong
I hope that we're forgiven
Got a few kids on my own
And some days I still don't know what to do
I hope that they're not laughin' too loud,
when they hear me talkin' like this to you...

That's when sport was a sport
And groovin' was groovin'
and dancin' meant everything
We were young and we were improvin'
laughin' laughin' with our friends
Holding hands meant so much, baby
Outside the club cherry bomb
Where our hearts were really thumpin'
[livejournal.com profile] ___rawr wrote it best in her LJ, but no matter what happens he'll still be my favorite wrestler of all time and in the end... nothing can change my memories. I stopped listening to music the night Eddie died (strange, I know if you know how much I crave the stimulus of music) but, I've had all my John Mellencamp records on tonight because I need something familiar to listen to. And, obviously, block out the thoughts.

Just try to live each and every precious moment
Don't be discouraged by the future; forget the past
Thats old advice but it'll be good to you


John Mellencamp - Between A Laugh & A Tear


I'm going to be gone for another vacation, so I'll talk to you all on Friday.
Hey? Do you remember when I could go through a whole day without having to take a nap in the middle of it? Yeah, me too....

[livejournal.com profile] cobrasnaps: ...
[livejournal.com profile] cobrasnaps: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHA
[livejournal.com profile] cobrasnaps: And, that's all you gotta say.

Speaking of, I've been pretty good with not mocking the hell out of Corzine. I'm glad to see that most of the newscasters have been doing my job instead. I might actually watch Letterman tonight if I remember to see what he says. I know I got a billion jokes. But, seriously, my hate aside, I'm pretty pleased that apparently those write-in votes actually do work sometimes, LMMFAO, because look! My vote-in vote from the last election is now the substitute governer again. Cody should've just ran for office, lol. Oh, and that crash did look horrible and it's one of the many reasons why I hate NJ highways, but ehhh. At least *I* already always wore my seatbelt, even before Dan died.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Mariano Rivera is the only player in the major leagues with the No. 42.

That number was retired in 1997 in honor of Jackie Robinson, but players who already had the number were allowed to keep wearing it. Rivera is the only one left. This Sunday, he will have plenty of company as Major League Baseball is allowing any player, coach or manager who wishes to wear 42 to do so. The Yankees announced yesterday that manager Joe Torre, Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano will honor Robinson by wearing his number.

Jeter called it "an easy decision" to don Robinson's number, and also said: "If there's one player I could play with or talk to, it'd be Jackie Robinson."

Rivera said he thinks this is a great idea. He actually wishes MLB would go farther and have everyone wear 42 for one day.

"I wear it with honor," Rivera said. "I wear it with pride."

Cano is particularly tickled to wear 42. He is named for Robinson, his father Jose's favorite player.

"We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for him," said Cano, gesturing around the clubhouse.


Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] luckystar37, I am now in love with this band. Soon, once I have time (I'm shooting for Sunday afternoon), so will all of you.

And even though I don't like talking about the sport during the playoffs (and on Friday the 13th at that!) a verrrry happy birthday to my sexy cheese eatin' hair dyin' almost died three years ago Czech, Patrik Elias.
LMMFAO Note to self for future reference; it's a bitch to find lyrics for traditional Irish music on the web. In fact, it's almost as impossible as finding rap music in standard American English.

Also it amuses me how many Brock "fans" (and I use that term loosely) come out of the woodwork on these stupidass message boards ... especially when he "sticks it the WWE" by winning the IWGP Heavyweight in Japan.

Oh, lol, I never got around to seeing the AWA Florida DVD (Jarrett's the mainevent, eee!), but I did watch a SD tape from '00. And it had Kat vs. Terri in an intergender match. And next time I bitch about these wanna-be's fucking up my women's wrestling ... I'm going to remember this match, and how much they've progressed in 5 years. And degressed too, but that's another rant.

Holy fuck, another match had Val/Trish vs. Eddie/Chyna, and Trish broke the King's ice tea pitcher over Chyna's head and "knocked her out" for a little bit. Now, that's ... just. Yeah. LMMFAO. Also, Val Venus looks weird with all that hair o.O
