Game 57 Thread: June 5 vs. Phillies, 7p

MANNYWATCH: 23 GAMES
DODGERS' RECORD WITHOUT MANNY: 16-11

Eric Milton (2-0, 3.14) vs. Jamie Moyer (4-5, 6.75).

COMMENTS: It's hip to be a graybeard! Carl Fredricksen (above) is the protagonist of the number-one movie Up and Milton and Moyer (average age: 40) face off tonight at 47-year-old Dodger Stadium. Both old men are on winning streaks, Milton having won his last two starts and Moyer having won his 250th career game.

So fire up your walkers and get ready to tell anybody who will listen stories that don't go anywhere — like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. "Give me five bees for a quarter," you'd say. Now where were we? Oh yeah, the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones. You see, back in those days, rich men would ride around in zeppelins, dropping coins on people, and one day I seen J.D. Rockefeller flying by. So I run out of the house with a big washtub and — hey! Where are you going? Anyway, about my washtub. I'd just used it that morning to wash my turkey, which in those days was known as a walking-bird. We'd always have walking-bird on Thanksgiving, with all the trimmings: cranberries, Injun eyes, yams stuffed with gunpowder. Then we'd all watch football, which in those days was called baseball. Eh, why didn't you get something useful, like storm windows, or a nice pipe organ? I'm thirsty! Ew, what smells like mustard? There sure are a lot of ugly people in your neighborhood. Oooh, look at that one. Ow, my glaucoma just got worse. The President is a Democrat! Hello? I can't unbuckle my seat belt. Hello? There are too many leaves in your walkway.
