SCHADENFREUDE SATURDAY

 

 

If we thought Thursday night was a great night with the Bronx Bastards season ending, Friday night was even better as the Phuck Phaces Phrom Philly went down in a heap to the Red Birds of St. Louis. Now believe me, I am no fan of The Genius but as Dick Channey once said “in order to beat the bad guys, you have to be a bad guy” and this instance, as Mets fans we had to root for the bad guy.

The fallout in Philly is great because the whole town woke up this morning realizing they are back to being a worthless sports town again. The Dream Team Iggles are a nightmare and the Flyers having shipped off half their team in the off season will be fighting for a playoff spot in the NHL Eastern Conference. The best news for Philly sports fans is the NBA lockout so they don’t have to subject themselves to the stink that is the 76ers.

A couple of items I read today stuck out to me, one is from our friend Metstradaums who not only reminded me about Gary Mathews Sr. “Mets are crybabies” line but also points out the Jimmy Rollins went silent after the game and then there is this quote from Jim Salisbury’ Phillies Insider column:

Long after the stadium had emptied, and after most of the players had dressed and left the clubhouse, Shane Victorino reached into his locker and pulled out a sheet of World Series tickets marked for games in Philadelphia. He looked at them wistfully then tore them in pieces and dropped them into the trash bin as he headed for the door and another cold winter.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Suck it Shane!

Over at The Real Dirty Mets Ed “RustyJr” Marcus has a terrific interview posted that he did with Howard Stern Show producer and longtime Mets fan, Gary Della’Abate

Tony Plush is taking a lot of heat for his choice of words following last night’s Brewers win over the D-Backs but really why even have a reporter on the field after a game like that? We all know what Sam Ryan was going ask Morgan anyway, “describe how you’re feeling”? “Describe that at bat”? Why do networks even bother? In fact, what we got from Nyjer Morgan was great, same as what we got from Tim Lincecum last year a big fat ‘FUCK YEAH”!!!! Between Morgan’s reaction and Prince Fielder blowing off Ryan and going over to Pedro Gomez of ESPN made it one of the best post games ever.  Let’s face it if the Mets ever win another World Series, I’ll be FUCK YEAH-ing people all winter.

Even worse was Craig Sager’ prolonged inane questions to Chris Carpenter, who just pitched the game of his life and as his body language showed he wasn’t happy to have to answer questions from a La Gage aux Folles castmember reject while his teammates were celebrating.

If the Brewers played in Citi Field, the Skill Sets money woes would be over, the place would be packed ever night, they have a lot of 86ers in them personality wise.

A MOMENT OF SCHADENFREUDE

From the Fuck-adelphia Daily News

General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told media today that Cole Hamels will be leaving spring training to fly to Philadelphia, where he will be examined by team doctor Michael Ciccotti.

 Hamels has had persistent soreness in his elbow, which Amaro says has become “more localized” lately

AS MUCH AS I’D LOVE TO GLOAT, I JUST CAN’T

I should be enjoying some good old fashion schadenfreude over the A-Rod on ‘Roids story that broke this morning as it has all the elements that brings out the viciousness in me. There is Alex Rodriguez the biggest self-centered phony to hit this town in a long time, then there is Gene Orza who allegedly tip off Rodriguez that the piss cops were heading to his home which enhances Orza’ rep as a scummy weasel and then of course there are the New York Highlanders who can’t get enough bad news to satisfy my hate but there are a couple of things that keep me from dancing like an extra in Riverdance.

What this outing of Alex Rodriguez does is justify the village idiot, Jose Canseco as the voice of truth. Even though, he will forever be a rat bastard and a no good snitch, one thing he’s not is a liar. Everything he wrote in his two books (let that swirl around your head for a moment, Jose Canseco writing 2 books) has come out to be true. Canseco may be an idiot but he is an idiot savant when it comes to performance enhancing drugs and the ball players that use them.

The other reason that I take no joy in this news is it hurts baseball. For reasons I can’t explain, baseball is held to a higher standard than other sports.NFL players wind up on the police blotter weekly, NBA players produce more out of wedlock kids than that nutty woman in California hell, even Olympic swimmers hitting the chronic don’t face the scorn of baseball players who take PED’s.

A week before spring training starts I don’t want to hear about PED’s I want to hear about rookie phenoms and vets coming into camp healthy and fans thinking we have a chance for a big season and looking forward to summer and enjoying ourselves in our new home  ball park but no we can’t because of more fallout from drug use that happened six years ago. It takes all the fun out of being a hater.

TIME FOR A PROPER BURIAL

From reading the stories about this weekend’s series with the Cheesesteakers it looks as if Jerry’s Gang really wants to burry the Collapse of ’06 and sweep the three game series from Philly. Not only would that put to rest the awful memory of last year it would also put the Mets up 6 games and put a swift kick in the balls to the Phlacid Phills.

 

Saw this on a Phillies fan site and I had to laugh it’s an exchange between Howard Stern side kick/heroin addict/fat fucking slob Artie Lang and actor Jerry O’Connell on O’Connell’s porn viewing habits:

 

{ Like so many conversations on the Stern show, Howard was asking Jerry O’Connell about his porn viewing habits. Now, just in case you aren’t hip to the celebrity gossip scene, Jerry is married to Rebecca Romijn, who is currently pregnant with twins. Because of that, the former Stand By Me fatty said he hasn’t been getting much sex from his wife lately and has turned to porno to quench his sexual needs. (I apologize if this is getting weird, but trust me, it relates to the joke.)

 

So, anyway, Jerry was explaining his particular porno fetish; which happens to be zoomed-in, up close shots of the woman’s vagina. That’s when Artie chimed in with the hopes of helping Mr. O’Connell out. He goes:

 

“You know there used to be a magazine called Assholes & Pussies? All it showed was close-ups of assholes and pussies.”

 

Jerry seemed intrigued, but then Artie continued,

 

“Well… it was about the Mets.”}

 

HA, HA you pissed stained junkie, we’ll see who the pussies are after Sunday night.

 

Joel Sherman paints a picture of seashells and balloons for the Mets, especially this moment of Schadenfreude about the Cubs pitching staff:

 

{ The Cubs, pretty much the class of the NL all year, have lost five in a row. More important they have lost top starters Carlos Zambrano and Rich Harden. Zambrano was scheduled for an MRI exam of his shoulder yesterday with his season in the balance.

 

Meanwhile, the Cubs finally conceded Harden has “discomfort” in his right shoulder. And in Harden we are talking about a pitcher who was limited to just 13 starts for Oakland in the previous two seasons because of a variety of arm problems. He is slated to start Wednesday on 11 days’ rest. We’ll see.

 

And what made the Cubs darlings to win their first World Series in a century was the depth of their rotation. The Cubs will be a different team in October if their top two starters are Ryan Dempster and Ted Lilly rather than Zambrano and Harden. }

 

FOR SALE: Used 2nd baseman with some wear and tear on the wheels. Still gets on base but has range limitations in field. Asking price negotiable. Owner willing to eat some salary. Call (718) 507-6387 ask for Omar

 

The NY Sun is damn good newspaper but like all newspapers it’s in trouble of shutting down it’s a shame but the time they are a changing and maybe the Sun will stay as a web based paper.

 

If Screamin’ A Smith had said only nerds played Fantasy Sports Games I’d have no issue but when you say only “white” nerds play it then I have a problem. Screamin’ A goes on to say that blacks have better things to do than play these games like have barbeques and socialize, which is strange because I’m as white as rice and I socialize and I even own my own barbeque grill (cause we’re movin on up……..)  it’s unfortunate that Scream A has to stoop low like this to make a point but I guess when your career is going down the toilet you do what you have to do. I like Screamin’ A’s work in the Philly Daily News covering the NBA but his work never carried over to TV and radio (could be the Screamin’ part of his act) but you know what? I’m not mad at ya S.A.S I’ll still split a bag of Cheez Doodles and bottle of grape soda with you anytime.

 

Just to prove that assholes come in all colors, ladies and gentlemen I give you Curt Schilling.

 

Last nights New York Football Giants game was a real snooze fest. The Men of Coughlin could have and should have run for about 300 yards on the Redskins. The G-Men have a stout defense that shut down the Synder’s Sad Sacks all night. Towards the end of the game I was dozing off until the last play of the game when Mathias Kiwanuka went down and was grabbing his ankle in the first OH SHIT! moment of the season. It looks like Kiwi is fine WHEW!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Click here and then scroll down, to see the pic of example of the biggest front running fans in sports. Guaranteed you will be seeing a lot of Mets caps and Mets shirts on the streets of NYC  because the Mets are about to become a “NY event” So just a warning to Highlander fans on Staten Island and in the Tribeca/SOHO area of Manhattan and the Bay Ridge/Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn I know who you people are and I know your team affiliations if I see you with Mets gear on I will go Abu Ghraib on your ass. You’ve been warned!
