Post-Game 83 Thread: Mermaid Power!

DODGERS 7, MARLINS 3

Even continued Blogger wonkiness couldn't stop Vicente Padilla from striking out nine over 6.2 IP (2 ER, 6 H, 0 BB), 3 RBI from en fuego Rafael Furcal, and three Dodgers going yard (Matt Kemp #16; Andre Ethier #14, Casey Blake #9), frying the flopping Fish before our very eyes. Jonathan Broxton had to come in during the ninth inning to save the game with the last two outs, but these Fish were gasping for air anyway. And not that we're a superstitious lot here at SoSG, but you know damn well there will be more Mermaids for tomorrow's rubber match. And not the kind named Ariel.

That image loaded at the same time the Honda opera commercial was playing on my TV. It made for a funny combo.

I wanted Jackie, but now I have Lindsey crying.

I am le sad.

Dusty Baker said...

I am not - repeat NOT - superstitious. At all.

Dusty Baker said...

No Jackie Johnson. Just that freakishly thin-nosed lady.

Josh S. said...

Alyssa Milano as a mermaid.

Might as well keep it in the family.

I can't stand the Jackie teasing. I have turned my TV off.

Dusty Baker said...

MSTI just reported that Volstad was optioned to AAA after the game (the minor league, not the car club).

Josh S. said...

MLASF angry at being denied Johnson.

Josh S. said...

I thought he was optioned to the Mexican wrestling organization.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I have to admit, that was funny, Josh.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Are you sure it wasn't the American Angus Association?

FINALLY JACKIE JOHNSON

Sharon Tay's nose is indeed bizarro. Cosmetic surgery gone awry.

Steve Sax said...

And why didn't they show the clip of the Rangers fan falling from the upper deck?

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Drudge linked to the video of the fan falling. I think it's still there.

Dusty Baker said...

Is that her name - Sharon Tay?

Steve Sax said...

type "sharon tay" into google and "sharon tay plastic surgery" comes up. Apparently others think this nose is not natural.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCKING FAT TURD BASTARD

Steve Sax said...

@DB, looks like the drudge video link doesn't show the actual fall.

yikes.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I missed Jackie. I feel cheated.

Dusty Baker said...

I like one of the comments on that YouTube site of the fan falling:

"If this would of happened in Philly he probably would have been tased."

Also, this one, which fairly succinctly reflects my feelings:

"Show the God Damned fall, c'mon. Show the damn idiot making his 15 minutes of fame come true."

Waitaminit...Mariano was playing hurt against us? Man, the universe keeps inventing new ways to make that weekend more depressing.

Here's an insightful article on Tay:

She says "My greatest strength as an anchor is being genuine."

When Sharon Tay first came onto the local scene, she had a very broad natural nose. Apparently she wasn't fond of her god given beauty.
