    Unfortunately, it appears A-roid has gotten over his year-long slump...

    This may be sacreligious, but I'm rooting for A-Rod to have a big year, and a long carreer (provided, of course, that the Yankmees go nowhere in the interim). The less time that cheatin' bastid Barry Bonds spends in the record books, the better. If it takes a pin-stripe-wearing, mirror-staring, bad-call-whining, lip-gloss-shining, ego-stroking, October-choking, unmitiigated clutch-hole like Alex Rodriguez to knock Bonds off of his anabolic summit, so be it.

    Hiya, Barry! :ken

    I am with ya there.

    Plus if A rod has a great year he will command $$$$$$$$$$$$ in the free agent market so to keep him the Yankmees will have to pay, pay, pay.

    It's the classic scenario- he has a record shattering year, while the Yankmees fall into the basement early and play like shit. NY's pissed off all summer, then they get to debate whether A-Hole-Rod is worth keeping or not. :evil

    Is it just me, or does Jason Giambi look like he just stumbled off the set of a chain saw massacre movie every time I see him? The man belongs in the professional wrestling ring.

    He also looks less "deflated" lately. Hmmmm???

    Interesting to watch the sport this year and to witness how so many stars seem to have downsized miraculously!~ Manny looks like he just got back from Jenny Craig- Sammy Sosa looks like he he could use a Stop and Go tire plugger and a Cycle Pump. :huh

    Actually we have managed to make a simple "Yankees Suck" to really mean so much more. Those low class Archie Bunkers from the Bronx can't say hello without a few "fucks" thrown in to the point where it looses all meaning.

    Speaking of which I was hearding up the Jersey turnpike Sunday afternoon (fucking moto root canal) and at the tunnel split I saw a F650 (I think) with the ADV oval and another DS bike (guy and girl).

    I stood on the pegs hit the horn and gave a glorious ADV salute. If you are gonna have the sticker don't look so shocked when someone gives you the "secret handshake". :lol3 :eek1

    How many pennants have the Red Sox won in their history?

    I think I found it. 11 pennants. Step-children to the Yankees.

    lots and lots. Including a run of many in a row in the early 20th century that I don't think has been surpassed. I used to know these stats and shit- but time marches on and the braincells never regenerate.:evil


    Edit- quick count looks like 18 pennants, 7 world series titles... including the very first one. (oops-counted some years twice 'cause of the division series listings. They've got a shitload of those!)

    They might be the second most popular team in the junior circuit.

    I think the Yankerz have enough defenders of their record. Why don't you stick to rooting for the Tennessee... oh, wait... you don't have a baseball team, ya Spoil Sport. :fitz

    I'm a Cardinals fan in baseball as are most folks down this way. They are America's team.
