Post-Game 23 Thread: Perfect Snark

DODGERS 8, PADRES 5

The Dodgers had a perfect April at home (starting 7-0 there for the first time since 1947, says Vin) and we had perfect snark in today's Game Thread. Just a sampling:

On James McDonald's tough outing...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...
McDonald falls apart faster than Shea Stadium when a screw is loosened.

After a Padres fan made a nice catch of a foul ball...

Erin said...
Man, I don't know if a bigger tool could have caught that foul behind the plate.

On Andre Ethier's Photo Day fears...

Nic j said...
thats what they said
[on the radio], even if they crop you out and manipulate your photo, you're still in a uniform.

who wears a dodgers uniform while assaulting an underaged girl

On the pretty blonde singing "God Bless America"...

Fred's Brim said...
i bet Brian Giles asks her out

During a crucial Ethier at-bat...

Booger said...
come on Dre, just because you are scared of cameras doesnt mean you cant come through in a flash!!

After Ethier hit into an inning-ending double play...

Nic j said...
not only is andre taking carne asada sundays from nomar, he is taking nomars GIDP's

On the pest...

Booger said...
Wasnt Eckstein on the mini-sirloin burger commercial?

See what you've been missing? There's a Game Thread for every game, so join us and get your snark on!

you doctored my post to make me look like an Andre Ethier basher!

thats it from now on im never posting anything about Ethier. Extortion!

Orel said...

Fair enough, Nic. Entire post restored.

Nic j said...

i guess i kinda get what ethier is saying about the no photos thing.

Nic j said...

i was joking by the way, sarcasm doesn't show well in type.

Orel said...

No problem, Nic.

I figure Ethier's just taking the strictest stance possible to be safe. He obviously didn't consider the fan reaction, or he doesn't care.

Nic j said...

yeah, ethier seems a bit on the cocky side, but as long as he continues to rake i dont really care.

Ill try and send pictures im going to the game tomorrow!!

Orel said...

Don't discount the role Ethier's wife may have played in his decision.

Have fun at the game! Would love to see your pictures!

Fred's Brim said...

I wonder if Giles will take her out for breakfast...

Booger said...

Ethier might be taking it a little too far. I understand the dangers of candid pictures during off-hours, but he has to understand that he works in the piblic eye. doesnt he remember when someone was trying to sell a piece of gum chewed by Luis Gonzalez?

Erin said...

I feel like a celebrity. I guess I should take my profile picture down now, just so you fools can't doctor it.

Steve Sax said...

All day, I have been snickering about booger's Eckstein / mini sirloin burger comment. Love it.

Yippee ki yay, mini sirloin burgers! Hah!

Booger said...

Yeah, that is probably one of the funniest commercials i've ever seen.

it even has Migosh from Willow!!!

QuadSevens said...

I love how the mini cowboy almost falls backwards off his horse when he throws the lasso.

Orel said...

"I feel like a celebrity. I guess I should take my profile picture down now, just so you fools can't doctor it."

Careful Erin, we may just Photoshop you with Brady Anderson.

Orel said...

As much as I like Booger's comment, I gotta say I hate that JitB commercial. The whole little people trope is so tired.

Erin said...

Orel, I'm with you on that commercial. I just wish I could get the stupid song out of my head.

Great stuff!
