  • Yankees vs Marlins

    The victories of the Yankees over the Red Sox and the Marlins over the Cubs is, in a small way, a metaphor for American cultural and political life: Same-old, same-old.

    I was really hoping for a Cubs/Sox world series.

    The only good thing I can say about the Yanks/Marlins series is that it has relieved me of the obligation of watching and I'll be able to spend that time on something, perhaps, useful.

      "same old, same old" maybe that's true as far as the Red Sox and the Cubs going another year without getting to the series, yes, I'll agree. And the Yankees in it again okay, I'll go with you on that one too.
      I live in South Florida so I'm happy, but you can't take anything away from this year's Marlins. This is an amazing story.
      Here we had two championship series go to a game seven, into extra innings. This was some exciting baseball.
      Beyond the disappointment from a Cubs or Red Sox fan's perspective, I see nothing to complain about. I'm looking forward to a great series.

        I had to stretch to make this particular "metaphor" work as far as the Marlins are concerned, but since they were in it, what, 5 years ago, I let it go. I take nothing from them.

        I'm so sick of the Yankees I could puke. My dad, who grew up in the Bronx, used to take me to Yankee games which was fair enough; I loved those times together with him. But as soon as we were old enough to go to games alone, me and my friends were off to Shea.

        I hope the Marlins win, but I'm not going to watch.

          During the Mariners' self-destruction after the All Star break we (my household) held to the thin hope that Boston wouldn't knock them out of the wild card. But once the fat lady sung we were definitely on the Cubs/Sox band wagon.

          The Marlins deserve to go. The Yankees are such a rival we just love to h*te them.

          Having said that I went to game 4 of the 2001 World Series. There is no experience like a WS game in Yankee Stadium. That was the night of the first ever November baseball when the game ran past midnight. I even got a Yankee hat.

          Back in Seattle I wore the hat while ice skating with the kids. A Jr. Hi'ish aged girl said the hat was really bothering her and asked me to take it off!

          The hat is still in great shape, sits in my closet. Hasn't seen the light of day for quite a while.

            I hope you slapped her silly. Jeez, the nerve of some people. It's one thing to express your opinion, but to suggest someone take off a hat cause you don't like it! I have been accused here of being, what's the phrase, ah yes, overly sensitive, but that just takes the cake.

            I recently sent a sister poster here at RSU a PM about her sig which I hate. But I never suggested she take it down, fer crying out loud.

            Ok, rant over.

              i used to have the emblem of my favourite rugby (union - for those who know what i'm talking about) team tattooed on my shoulder.
              it was a remarkably un-me thing to do, to get a sportsteam's emblem as a tattoo but that just made it more me


              whenever one of those disturbingly pointless discussions about how stupid u r for supporting a certain team broke out (normally with supporters of 'the other team'), pulling up the sleeve of a shirt was a very nice way of saying 'shut up, sit down'



              (the original tattoo was badly done and after a couple of salvage attempts i admitted defeat and after witnessing the solar eclipse last year, had it covered with a black disc with stylised 'rays' represented by fading triangles on the one side and a celtic 'swoosh' on the other. the swoosh ends in a yin yan and is mirrored [but in negative] on the other end. as soon as i find a design that does it justice, i want to complete the piece with a shading-only representation of a 'crystal' contact juggling ball - damn! how did we onto my fav subject? )

                I briefly overheard on the radio today (didn't catch the whole story) that someone is buying or wants to buy the rights to make a movie about the young man who reached for the ball during game six.

                If so, it sure didn't take long.

                  I was skating with a friend who used to play hockey. Let's just say she had an intimate meeting with the boards.

                    GO MARLINS!

                    fortunatly the Muni-week-end pizza party was at a sports bar so i was able to watch game one.

                    game 2 wasnt so good,but game 3 with Masina vs. Berkett sould be a dandy.

                      Did you record it on your spiffy new twin deck tape player/recorder? I still think that thing is only good for breaking the record of "largest drop onto cement ever attempted by a twin deck tape player". Also, where were they showing the game??
