Josh Woodward · 17 years, 4 months ago
I don't normally care, but since Sara is rooting for the Chicago, up the Cubs! :)
Starfox Back · 17 years, 4 months ago
I can't stand baseball (unless I'm in the stadium, but then that's more about atmosphere than the game), but I'll root for the Cubbies since I am originally from Chicagoland and the Cubs go to the playoffs about as often as pork flies.
Andrea Krause · 17 years, 4 months ago
Eh, I'm not a big fan of baseball, but when I have to root for someone it's the red sox.

I haven't cared about MLB since Pittsburgh had to let go of Barry Bonds because they couldn't afford him.

END YANKEE OPPRESSION NOW!!!!!

Albert Einstein arrives at a party and introduces himself to the first woman he sees and asks, "What is your IQ?"

The woman answers, "241."

"That is wonderful!" says Albert. "We will talk about the Grand Unification Theory and the mysteries of the universe. We will have much to discuss!"

Later in the party, Albert introduces himself to a man, "What is your IQ?"

The guy answers, "144."

"That is great!", says Albert, "We can discuss politics and current affairs. We will have much to discuss!".

Futher into the evening Albert goes to another person and asks, "What is your IQ?"

The person answers, "51."

Albert ponders this for a moment, and then smiles and says,
"GO YANKEES"!!

similarly...

A certain elementary school got a new teacher. This new teacher was a Yankees fan and proud of it. In fact, he was always talking about it, and since the kids were fairly young, he intimidated them.

One day he boldly announced, "My mother was a Yankees fan, my father was a Yankees fan and I'm a Yankees fan. How many in this room are Yankees fans?"

The kids, being a little scared to disagree with their teacher, all raised their hands; all except for one little girl. So then he asked her, "Well, what are you then?" She said, "I'm a Red Sox fan. My mother was a Red Sox fan, my father was a Red Sox fan and I'm a Red Sox fan too."

He then sarcastically snarled, "If your mother was a moron and your father was a moron, what would that make you?" She thought for a moment and meekly replied, "I guess that would make me a Yankees fan."
K-Lyn Back · 17 years, 4 months ago

Actually, we use that one for the Blazers (what if your mother was a prostitute and your father was and drug dealer). But we don't like our Blazers that much...

but I digress:

A newspaper reporter is walking around Fenway during a game and sees a boy being attacked by a huge dog. All of a sudden, another young boy comes up and saves the boy being attacked.


The reporter is amazed and goes up to the brave young kid and asks for some information. On his little pad, the reporter writes: "Brave young Red Sox fan saves child from a wild and rabbid dog".

After writing this, the kid who saved the child from the dog corrects the reporter and says that he is actually a Yankees fan. The reporter ponders for a second and then scratches out his previous statements and then writes:"Little bastard Yankee fan kills family dog outside of Fenway Park.

another:

Roger Clemens, after living a full life, died.

When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Yankees flag in the window. "This house is yours for eternity," God said. "This is very special, not everyone gets a house up here."

Roger felt special, indeed, and walked into his house. On his way up to the porch he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a three- story mansion with a bright red and blue sidewalk, a 50 foot flagpole with a Red Sox flag flying on it, and a Red Sox logo in every window. In the front yard was a sign reading 'Welcome To Beantown.'

Clemens looked at God and said, "I don't mean to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I won three World Series rings, more awards than I can remeber, and I won 300 games." God answered, "So what do you want to know, Roger?" "Well, why does Pedro Martinez get a better house than me?" God chuckled and said, "Roger, thats not Pedro's house... its mine."

Much as I hate to divert the conversation away from baseball, sounds like the one I heard about the dead NASCAR fan talking to Saint Peter going on a tour through heaven. He see's Davey Allison's and Alan Kululwicki's (both big drivers in the late 80's and early 90's, both died in '93) cars on display. Seeing the fan's reaction, St. Peter talls him God's a big NASCAR fan, and puts the late greats' cars on display. The fan see's 4-time champion Jeff Gordon's rainbow car at the end of the row, and has a look of shock on his face. "Wait a minute, don't tell me he died!!!"

"No," St. Peter says, "That's God's car. He just lets Jeff use it on weekends."

Ew... redneck jokes.
Andrea Krause Back · 17 years, 4 months ago
How is that a redneck joke?
nate... Back · 17 years, 4 months ago
Well, it IS about a NASCAR fan.

O:-)
*joolee* · 17 years, 4 months ago
Don't care! :D
nate... Back · 17 years, 4 months ago

nitsita Back · 17 years, 4 months ago

Jeebus... indoor plumbing can't be far behind....
nitsita Back · 17 years, 4 months ago

I'll have to let my sled dogs loose on you :p

Paul D. Beasi Back · 17 years, 4 months ago
Sadly, Nitsa, I think Montreal has proven that it doesn't want a baseball team. :/
nitsita Back · 17 years, 4 months ago
montreal != canada :D
Paul D. Beasi Back · 17 years, 4 months ago
Yeah but the only other Canadian MLB team is Toronto, and I hate the Jays. :)
meh · 17 years, 4 months ago

I don't really like pro baseball unless I'm at the park, and I've only been to maybe 2 games in my life, one of which was rained out after an exhibition game held before it.

Either way, since I was a very small kid I always claimed the Cubs or the Tigers as my favorite team in the majors.  I guess because they're animal teams.

It's nice to know the Cubs are doing well this year.  On the other hand, something will be wrong in my universe if the Tigers ever start to do well again.  :-)

I would've just voted for "uh what," but it implied too much of a lack of sports knowledge.  Not quite the "baseball isn't my sport, you insensitive clod" option I would've gone for.  Heh.

Of course I just woke up because I looked at the clock wrong the first time I could've gotten up, so this all might just be a mass of gibberish.

lawrence Back · 17 years, 4 months ago

well, for the Tigers, doing "well" would mean only losing 118 games next season. :)
meh Back · 17 years, 4 months ago

well, for the Tigers, doing "well" would mean only losing 118 games next season. :)

According to several much-much-older relatives of mine, the Tigers were once a fine team indeed.  But yes, for now it would be unsettling if they only lost 118 games or so.  ;-)

goovie is married! · 17 years, 4 months ago
um. yeah!
emilie is CRANKY · 17 years, 4 months ago

um. i watched a game of baseball once on tv at like 4am (i couldn't sleep), and it was bollocks. i was so bored.

still, it won't stop us going to see a game when we're over there, muahahaha. now, of course, who should we go see? hmmmmm. ;)

sheryls Back · 17 years, 4 months ago
Well, you'll have fun eating the bad food, drinking beer and whatnot - but really, they call it our national pasttime, but i think our national pasttime is napping, and therefore, since watching baseball is so condusive to napping....
Pentecost Andrew! · 17 years, 4 months ago
Methinx I smell a rat.
Starfox Back · 17 years, 4 months ago
No, the White Sox did not make the playoffs. As usual.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 4 months ago
We all know that the Red Sox can't win because of the Curse of the Bambino. The White Sox are still paying for fixing the 1919 World Series. What sin are the Cubs paying for all these years? They've gone the longest without a world championship.

Back in the 80s my friend, a Yankee fan, and I decided that to end the Curse of the Bambino the Red Sox should buy Don Mattingly, the best Yankee at the time, and convert him into a pitcher. Perhaps now they should buy Derek Jeter.
K-Lyn Back · 17 years, 4 months ago
Oooh...I dig it! Down with Jeter. I don't care HOW cute the kid is.
Misch · 17 years, 4 months ago
Anybody But the Yankees?
Bel kjfdxcvuyjh8 · 17 years, 4 months ago
yeah how about "really couldn't care less who wins because i will die of boredom if i watch baseball."

though playing it is kinda fun. I find that the sports that are fun to play, suck to watch, and the sports that i like watching, i can't play.
Melinda J. Beasi · 17 years, 4 months ago
Yes.
100% dainty! · 17 years, 4 months ago

You forgot the Phillies you insensitive clod!!

Come on, what team could be better when they have some unidentifiable green fuzzy thing as their mascot??

Talcott Back · 17 years, 4 months ago
The Capital City Goofball?
I always thought Dancin' Homer had more style myself ;-)
K-Lyn Back · 17 years, 4 months ago

They weren't forgotten...it was they themselves who forgot to get themselves into payoffs in order to be voted on...

Silly Phillies..Trix are for kids. (Can't you see the commerical with the mascot now?)

Jeffs D (a.k.a Devon) · 17 years, 4 months ago
