Post-Fest 104 Thread: Misery Loves Company

GIANTS 2, DODGERS 1

The mortifying Giants comeback victory was thankfully anesthetized by great company at SoSG Fest 2010. More later, as I've gotta get back to drinking.

Still holding court at the bar.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I've calmed down a bit. Still plenty pissed, but not as uncontrollably violent. These bats need to wake up fast, and I expect a lot out of Theriot over the next two months.

Steve Sax said...

Theriot is the answer.

Mr. Customer said...

Unsurpisingly, still here at the bar. Outlasted Dusty.

Paul said...

GAARP better step it up!!!

*cries*

Mr. C still at the bar? I missed out.

*curses*

NicJ said...

Ive already started making my "LA (the)RIOT SQUAD" signs.

Mr. Customer said...

@paul

Chatting up the Aussie barkeep as we speak. I'm gonna need a cab, to say the least.

Josh S. said...

Mr. C's saving our table for SoSG 2: Electric Boogaloo.

Josh S. said...

^Fest

Steve Sax said...

That Aussie barkeep, Kim, is a jewel.

She'll break your heart, Mr C.

Mr. Customer said...

@josh

It'll be the one with the dude in.a coma underneath.

Mr. Customer said...

@sax

Hopefully.

Dusty Baker said...

Outlasted Dusty my ass! Unless you went back after Mrs Dusty squired me home.

NicJ said...

Just saw the the Padres got Ludwick from STL.
I hate that guy.

Paul said...

I have to honor myself after my 13th straight day of work with a trip to Bev Mo. I wish I had a better option but I might end up on the floor quick.

Paul said...

Mr. C

You make me proud. I know that I think I am the best at conversation after a day of drinking. Some may disagree but I can't really hear them at that point anyways.

Dusty Baker said...

Like to send a shoutut to the Sons for their hospitality today and for organizing such a fine event. I'd take a bullet for you guys, especially if it the bullet was tipped with Jamesons*. What a great day for so many of us. Just served as a remonder of how much we love this place and what a unique asset it is for unrequited Dodger angst. You guys are the best!

*Not-so-obscure reference to the post-SoSG Fest beverages that Mr. C and I enjoyed.

Dusty Baker said...

As much as I think Chris Berman is a tired old goat, I have always liked his nickname for Dotel:

Octavio "Don't Ask" Dotel

That's just rich.

Paul said...

Thanks for idea Dusty. Going to restock on some that aged Catholic whiskey.

Dusty Baker said...

Permission to call Theriot "Wattsriot" for the next two months?

Dusty Baker said...

Didn't take much to push Paul over the line.

Dusty Baker said...

Betsy and her man: shout out

Dusty Baker said...

Sons: 42 shout outs

Dusty Baker said...

Josh: shout out

Mr. C: middle finger

Dusty Baker said...

Shout out: Carlos

NicJ said...

isnt it a funny that the angels tagline for the season is "tradition" and they change their logo, colors, and location constantly.

Dusty Baker said...

Shout out: Rafael of the [redacted] bar staff. True Blue through and through.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

Watching Lost Angels of Cerritos Auto Square right now. They're not losing by enough for my taste.

NicJ said...

watching the angels lose is the only thing i have left.

Nancy Bea said...

We had a blast! Thanks again for having us. We thought of a name for Belinda on the drive home...either ShameyJamie or JamieShamey. Which do you like better?

Betsy said...

Thanks so much for having us, it was a blast meeting everyone, worth being stuck in traffic. since dewitt is gone who is going to make his att appearance?

NicJ said...

haha, very good question betsy. Does Theriot take his ATT spot too?

Dusty Baker said...

I'm happy to sign autographs in place of Joyce DeWitt. Do I show up at some shitty strip mall AT&T store or what?

Dusty Baker said...

"ShameyJamie" sounds good.

Neeebs said...

Landed safe and sound.

Dang for missing the Snarkfest.

Sounds like you all had a blast.

Dusty Baker said...

Jorge Cantu: worst facial skin condition.

NicJ said...

Seal begs to differ.

Dusty Baker said...

I stand corrected. I meant if MLB players.

Josh S. said...

Oh hey, the Padres lost. Um, hooray for not losing more ground.

NicJ said...

crap, im actually rooting for the Pads now. Gotta keep the gints out of the playoffs.

Dusty Baker said...

Nice grill marks, Josh.

Steve Sax said...

Those aren't grill marks. They're skid marks.

Kidding, Josh! You're a wiener!

Dusty Baker said...

Total letdown just moping around the house after such a momentous afternoon. Only red stripe tallboys And making sweet sweet love to raffy will even begin to soothe what aches me.

Orel said...

Another vote for ShameyJamie.

Sweet whatnow?

Dusty Baker said...

Delino: not a lil bish

Dusty Baker said...

No shoutout: KempKershaw

Dusty Baker said...

Josh: wiener

But we love him

Dusty Baker said...

ShameyJamie sounds like the kind of girl I would have liked to go to prom with but not actually date.

Steve Sax said...

I like ShameyJamie too, to be Frank.

Dusty Baker said...

True or false:

Timmeh needs to wash his hair

Josh S. said...

I'm a wiener?! You're a brat!

Josh S. said...

Damn, that was a nice party, Sons. Thank you again!

Dusty Baker said...

Milhaus: little wiener

Dusty Baker said...

Sons: not sons of bitches

Orel said...

Are you guys still at the bar?

Steve Sax said...

Dusty: a man that can hold his liquor

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

No, home safely. We did stay awhile then Mrs Dusty ordered me to return as we have a canine emergency to deal with. I have to administer an eye drop to our dog every hour on the hour until tomorrow afternoon. I'll be up all night. Luckily, there is no sobriety test for administering the drops.

Josh S. said...

Dusty: a man that will also hold your liquor if you're not looking.

Dusty Baker said...

Anthony Weiner: not a weiner

Paul said...

Damn call of the wild made me take a quick detour but now I am home with anchor porter and Jameson reserve and a bit of a buzz already.

Gonna listen to some down existential indie rock to help stay in my Dodger funk. That is until the lyrics get too pretentious. Then on to some Check Your Head.

Dusty Baker said...

I love the transition from pretentious lyrics>Check Your Head.

Paul, check out:

Had a rad time, can't wait till the next one!


Now I just need to talk someone into getting rid of her red #5 jersey...

karina said...

@Paul what kind of existential indie music?. I feel angry as I was when the Yankees series ended, so it's London Calling, Combat Rock and Green Day's Dookie for me(I can't sleep tonight)

If this continues, it's gonna be Dream Theater.

Paul said...

@Karina

The National's. album Boxer. Love the song green gloves.

Mr. Customer said...

Now that I'm more sober and more awake, I'd like to echo the sentiments expressed above. That was a damn fine get-together, apart from the whole soul-shattering loss thing. A big thank you to the lads for making it happen.

I'll take that middle finger as a sign of respect, Mr, Baker.

Dusty Baker said...

MMMmmmmmm....Dookie....

Fred's Brim said...

DB Good-lookin out with the Beasties sample collection. Joeski Love's Pee Wee's Dance is still the cut!

It brings up an important question though: does Paul have a boutique?

Fred's Brim said...

and speaking of the National(s)...

I went out last night after the game to watch the Mets game with Mrs FB and friend of mine and we went to a tiny place that had the MLB package. Somehow, watching those games was really enjoyable. It seemed like everybody I wanted to lose lost. The biggest soul-soother was watching Ryan Zimmerman hit a walkoff 3R homer against Brad Lidge. That and liquor

Dusty Baker said...

That was a sweet Nats win, indeed. Now for a series sweep! Go Nats!

rbnlaw said...

So sorry I missed the fest, but had a fun time in that place called san Diego
