Something to Cheer You Up...

Hey all. Sorry I missed out on Dodgers "Bring the Pain" night. Was at the Hollywood Bowl rocking out to Goldfrapp. Though I did periodically check the score until I saw it was 6-2 in the ninth. Then didn't look at the score until after the game. Yep, yep, yep. Don't think even my customary 227 post would have helped.

Seems like you've all taken it well.

Since 96% of y'all are also Star Wars nerds addicts, I thought this might put a much-needed smile on your faces. Enjoy.

I was going to be mad that you didn't suffer through this embarrassing debacle of a shitpile of a nutkick of a game, but then you said it was a Goldfrapp concert. I think we're even

Fred's Brim said...

Sorry - there's still a burr under my saddle after last night

As I was scrolling down on my phone I liked that I could tell this was a Delino post as soon as I read Goldfrapp. Be glad you were at a concert. The game was so bad my "roommate" was genuinely mad walking to the car.

The AT-AT was rad though the title had me thinking he'd rob a bank and take a bunch of hostages.

In thinking about Broxton's 46 pitch blown save, I'm theorizing that Torre didn't simply have a brain cramp but an abusive moment right out of The Great Santini.

I can't get over last night's debacle. I hate Joe Torre. He's a freakin' idiot.

Oh yeah, the AT-AT did put a smile on face. Thanks.

Mr. Customer said...

Yup. I'm still bent, as well.

Dusty Baker said...

Yep, still chuffed.

Fred's Brim said...

chuffed or chafed?

The Double D said...

As long as you're not chafing

The Double D said...

And Goldfrapp was like being back in 1986. New Wave lives! And this time around, I get to drink during it.

Dusty Baker said...

I might choff.

Josh S. said...

I'm not mad anymore. I can only laugh it off. You have to.

I wonder how long I'll stick to my vow to not watch games for a week. I'll probably crack by tonight.

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh S

I admit that I'm still mad, but it's merely general impotent rage at this point. I'll probably be over it by game time.

Dusty Baker said...

I woke up thinking that Josh probably wouldn't make it any more than one night of staying away.

I will feel much better if we can pound some Giant ass.

Wait that didn't come out right...

Mr. Customer said...

But, now that you mention it...

Dusty Baker said...

Also, eating a hige pizza and having a nice red wine will help ease the pain the way Cupcake Wars did not.

Mr. Customer said...

The capitalization in that sentence makes it decidedly less appealing, though.

Dusty Baker said...

KFP both has a giant ass and is a Giant, now that I think about it. Could kill two birds with one stone.

Josh S. said...

OK, now I'm mad again.

I just realized Troncoso and Sherrill faced the exact same part of the lineup that Broxton did, yet they only allowed 2 runs.

MR. F said...

=/

Josh S. said...

This cheered me up. It should work for you too, Mr. C.

Josh S. said...

The utter ridiculousness of the Dodgers' "Young Guns" poster has also lightened my mood IMMENSELY.

*points to avatar*

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh S

Somebody tweeted me that link this morning, too, but I hadn't seen it until now. Brilliant.

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh S

Also, I fully appreciated this week's ep. A bit on the schmaltzy side, but the history/art angle is how I roll.

Paul said...

I am still pissed.

I need a 12-0 beat down asap.

Paul said...

Kuo is a young gun but he only has one bullet in his six shooter.

Paul said...

Wait who makes up this stuff? (re: posters).

MR. F said...

Ahhh. I might be able to make the Dodgers game tomorrow. I really should try to go.

Steve Sax said...

Third and final post-game thread (sort of) just went up. I finally can exhale.

Steve Sax said...

Oh, and btw, that video did make me feel better. Thanks Delino.

Blithe Field Bible School Football Rocks!

Dusty Baker said...

Have you been waiting to exhale, Sax?
