Random rantings and ravings about the Los Angeles Dodgers, written by a small consortium of rabid Dodger fans. With occasional comments on baseball, entertainment, pop culture, and life in general.
Carlos Monasterios (3-5, 4.02) vs. Wade LeBlanc (8-12, 4.15) wait wait I mean Vicente Padilla (6-4, 3.96) vs. Tim Stauffer (3-3, 1.68).
got that new GT smell.
Podsednik-7 Furcal-6 Loney-3 Blake-5 Ethier-9 Kemp-8 Theriot-4Ausmus-2 Padilla-1
stupid fucking dbacks.
ROLL OVER DODGERS!!!!
Still has the sticker smudge on the glass in this new GT.
the starting pitchers look a little off though.
Orel must have had this GT ready for a while; the pitching matchup says Monasterios v. LeBlanc.
we probably just need to accept the fact that the giants will probably be in the playoffs this year.I think that so frightening because if they end up winning a WS we have nothing to hold over them. Sure we have more but theirs will be shiny and new.
Oh, this is where everybody went =(
Wait...Wait...Wait!Here it comes..........< Fart >
MR.LASF,You should change the direction the arrow points.
All up to Miguel Montero.
montero is saving all his hits for when he plays us.Jokes on him.
FUCKING OYSTER PUBES AND FUCKING VAGIANTS
Son of beetch.
well now all we have to look forward to is this slapfight of a baseball game coming up.
That's not true, Nic. I have a lot to look forward to tonight. There's...well, there's...wait, there's...well shit, you're right. This is pretty much it.
You guys don't have BBBQ's going?
Hell yeah I do, Mr F. What the hell do you take me for, some sort of damn commie?
boise @ VT is what ill be watching. With random look ins on the baseball game to see if any of the new guys get to play.
What time does that game start, Nic? Should be a cracker.
I destroyed my grill with steaks and bratwurst saturday night. Shit is a fucking mess and I'm too lazy to clean it.
Late scratch; I was going to BBQ but instead I'm just going to microwave some Stouffer's.
What's the extra B for, BYOBB?
5 i think DB.
Hell I don't even know what the middle B stands for in BBQ.
I'll probably crash NEEEBS "Carne Asada on the Girl" party and ask his mom for dessert.
whats the extra "E" for?
@NicThat "e" is for "extra e".
well i just looked up "neebs" in the urban dictionary and i hope he isnt one of those. Maybe that why he has the extra e.
ESPN needs to put Lou Holtz to sleep already.
Whoa, hey! Urban Dictionary has a word for everything.Karina, close your ears.
I wholeheartedly agree re Holtz. Bastard's been dead for 6 years and they keep propping him up.Of course, he's been dead to me since shirking Razorbacks back when I was but a lad.
I want Boise State to win just to fuck with Colin Cowherd.
Oh Snap! I was left dumbfounded with "The Meaning of Neeebs".Now which definition describes our Neeebs? No.5 perhaps? HaHa
LOL these definitions are ridiculous.
i usually like boise to win.
whats up with the tron designs on VT's jersey numbers?
I want Boise State to win because fuck those castrated turkeys
Combining all the definitions: a drunk, poorly endowed, unattractive sexual predator, poor sportsman, noob, black male.I don't understand definition 6. It is poorly worded.
one of my favorite definitions from UD.nomonym:When you eat something and it tastes like something else. Things often taste like chicken but chicken rarely tastes like other things."This tuna tastes just like your mom." "Dude, that's a nomonym!"
HAHAHAHAHA. That is brilliant.
if you type in neebs with an "S" you will get another interesting one.
Cowherd sat down next to me at The Counter last night while I was having a burger and watching the Dodgers game. He had just gotten back from the Dodgers game.
the Va Tech uniforms look like ones that Miami rejected
did VT and BOise both get uniform redesigns?NIKE im guessing.Thats one large Logo on boise's helmet.
YOU SAW COWHERD AND DIDN'T ASK US TO SAY SOMETHING DEROGATORY TOWARDS HIM????
@DB, did he tell you the numbers suggest that you should have had the chicken sandwich?
Cowherd was there with his lad, who was wearing a Kemp jersey. Do with this fact what you wish.
I guess if his kid is there you couldn't use 95% of the lines I have prepared for him.
5% tasteful insults? I'd say you're slipping, MR. LASF.
@MLASF95% of the things I wanted to say were in re Kemp, so I just decided to say nothing.
how has Boise gotten good? Where does the money come from? The Ore-Ida fortune?
boise's ST looks pretty damn good.
@FBThey canceled all academic programs there. It's just football now.
Frank Beamer wants to choke somebody
I thought their potato stock finally skyrocketed.
Nats cap in the crowd!
wow those are some sad hillbillies
That was too easy for Boise State
@DB take THAT, Title IX!
That may be the first and only Title IX reference ever on SoSG. Nice!
I keep thinking this is Sunday, so a second ago I just got all freaked out that I was going to have to suffer through a Pod Rays camo Sunday uni before I realized it is Monday.
@ DustyMaybe they'll break'em out all week to celebrate the rememberance of remembering 9/11
*shivers at jingoistic implications*
youch - nice closeline
damn he just got hammered
wow, what a run.
Hello, gamethread. What's shakin'?
No mosques near PetCo when the Padres are wearing camo!
Mr C up in dis bish.
who the fuck cares if big ben isnt the captain anymore
Mrs Dusty trolling the GT tonight. Don't say anything bad about me.
@NicI didn't even know Big Ben was a captain until I knew he was no longer a captain. They still have captains in NFL?
@DustyIf we don't,then she will KNOW we're lying.
I sometimes notice guys like Peyton with the big C on their jersey.
the C stands for something else
or matt barkley, that looks really lame on a college uni BTW.
...and it ain't "Customer"
Pitching matchup corrected. Long weekend ending. Tears forming.
Get rid of the Seaward.
Good point re Mrs Dusty, Mr C.She asked about FB's hillbillies comment (which made me laugh incontrollably BTW), and I assured her that...yes, Virginia was chock full of hillbillies that should be mocked.
seems like Boise get a lot of kids from the So Cal area.
Holy spit! Smurfs up in dis bish!
I hate fade patterns. They look so nice, but they are so low percentage. I think calling a fade is an ego thing with OCs
I was thinking that same thing, Nic. How they convince a young brother from LA to go play in - Boise? - what a recruiting coup.
Are you talking about the Padres now, FB?
@DB re: the other thread - Yes, I've had the Rope Swing. Not bad for the brewery's first lager style brew. I am looking forward to the Fall seasonal Nut Brown Ale.As to th e debate on tanking, I have a hard time envisioning the circumstance when a protected pick will matter for the Dodgers. There is no way I can see Frank paying for both a type-A free agent and a mid-to-high first round pick. Since that depresses me to no end, I like to distract myself with winning baseball. And beer. Lots, and lots of beer. (beer status: Manny's, a local PNW unfiltered pale ale)
haha, that shot of the young couple sniping at each other was classic.
@Mrs Dusty - outside of Northern Virginia, it is mega kuntry there!
speaky of manny, anyone notice the sox are on a 7 game winning streak?
@DB - fading was never a choice for the Padres
@Jason - They did pay for Zach Lee. That's encouraging.Besides, if the team does go after a big bat like Ned says it will, it's better knowing that at least the first round pick is protected. It's better than not having a protected pick, you have to admit.
I also told Mrs Dusty that it's ok for hillbillies to laugh at hillbilly jokes, like Jewish people telling Jewish jokes, etc.
Manny 3-5 today.
go manny go
Cowherd on Friday "Utah may have won the game but it was a sloppy mess they didn't look good at all. Wait wait I getting another text from Kiffin. He loves me!! He texted it!!"Cowherd Today "I don't really look to see how the teams do the first week. It is the first game. These are young kids"
Tomorrow He will say Va Tech is awful and It wasn't a road game for Boise State.
MANNY RAMIREZ IS THE FUTURE OF CHICAGO BEAT WRITER HACK PIECES!
Maybe MLASF should start a faux Twitter account to give Cowherd shit.
BUT THE STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE, PAUL, THE STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE
i love how cowherd can just change his opinion to seem right. I guess that is easier to do when you have no cohost to call you on your shit.
I hate to note it but Zach Lee did not accompany any type-A signings.I will now go to a corner and cry.
@DB i may be a hillbilly but i have to admit I've never planted flowers in an old tire or toilet
How many writers will lose their jobs when Manny retires? many have made their careers out of belly-aching about him.
@DB, no we dont need Cowherd coming in here and typing at us in all CAPS.
@Nic - I don't know. Steve Mason still gets away with a lot of shit.@Dusty - I could, but Cowherd would just eventually find out and come on SoSG, deriding my opinion with made-up facts and calling me a whore.
Speaking of hillbillies, where is P Ditty?
I should also note that I'm more bitter than normal today. The rain and general grayness that is the Seattle fall and winter rolled in this morning.
@MLASF- thats because john ireland is an idiot unless its anything but basketball.
There's a beer for that, Jason.
John Ireland knows plenty! Like...how to spend per diem! And what Spero Dedes eats for dinner while the team is in Milwaukee!
Ireland is just there to play the UCLA Colmes to Mason's USC Hannity
=(I'd say I'm more bitter than normal today, but bitterness is normal these days =(.
Va Tech is getting it movin.
Mason plays to USC because he's a company man.
You know you're a SoSG nerd when you choose your browser based on how it operats in a Blogger-based GT.
just like he was a die hard clippers fan until last year.
Yeah, funny how he hopped off the Clipper train right when their deal with the Clips was up.
Reporters being fans of any ream drives me batshit. One of reasons I don't listen to any of that tripe.
It almost looks like Va Tech has a douche bag Ed Hardy stripe on their helmets.
mason's homerism towards USC drives me crazy. He used to talk shit about kiffin all day until he hopped back over to USC.
Except they're not reporters. They're guys on the radio talking about the local teams. Except when Ireland does sideline reports. And even then he doesn't do much.
Thanks, Dusty. I believe I am drinking that beer's 3rd cousin at the moment. I'm working my way through the family tree.My best to Mrs. Dusty. May her foray into this forum not damage her love of th Dodgers or the Blue faithful!*raises beer glass*
So when's the Light Cycle portion of the tournament?
fuck yah!!IDAHO POTATOES!!!
You know what also grows in Idaho? Meth. Oh wait that is Fresno.
^teamTrue, MLASF. Not reporters. Of course, there are very few actual sports reporters out there left. Most are sports opinionists.The same is true in news these days, too, sadly.
@Paul, i havent seen an "Only buy Fresno made Meth" commercial yet.
It's amazing the amount of people who are Tweeting about how much they like these unis.By amazing I mean scary.
Already have my postgame song. Damn I wish I was your lover- Sophie B. Hawkins
Wall Street 2 could be the ultimate meta-movie. Greed is good! (I will now produce a shameless sequal 10 years too late to cash in on the current political and economic climate)
@JasonAlso, let's do a bunch of demographic testing that shows we can get more women to go see the movie if we put a love interest in Wall Street II - more box office $$$!
137 comments and an hour til game time.My we're both surly and multi-faceted.
@Nic We are working on it. Fresno native Kevin Federline will be in it.
@Jason I will produce a shameless squeal should the Giants somehow miss the playoffs.
And it will still far exceed Basic Instinct 2.
Both the sequel and the squeal.
What is this strange "field goal" you speak of?
Laboring at work on Labor Day: surly factor +15
I don't look forward to another season of Brent Musburger.
The Kevin Federline from Clovis?
P. Ditty sighting.
Fresno: there's a reason they don't call it FresyesAm I allowed to tell a Fresno joke?
@Spankactually from Tarpey village. If Clovis wants to claim him. Wait who cares he is not associated with Fresno.
@FBplease do. I have a bunch of them.
wasnt hout the one who got clocked last year by blount?
@Nic - Yep.
Taylor's not getting good protection from the O-line.
Yeah he looks like Biff from back to the future.
My ears were burning. You guys still loving my adoration for extra vowels?
I need a ruling: a fellow patron at the bar ordered a tequila-based drink which elicited a mock of derision from another local drunk about Labor Day implying the need to order American made forms of alcohol only (exact profane, and jingoistic, wording redacted for Mrs. Dusty's benefit). I tossed out a joke similar to "tequila is appropriate it were Day Labor Day!"Inappropriate? Too on the nose?
I don't understand...
STOOPID ESPN CAMERA ANGLE
Oh go fuck yourself, Assburger.
LESS THAN 71 HOURS UNTIL REAL FOOTBALL
Just tell the local drunk to drink his Milwaukee's Best and Shut the Fuck Up! Or better yet, Call him a neeb
If we don't reach 200 comments by the time the Dodger game starts I will put a hole in my wall. I'll whore the thread if necessary.
ehhhh thats quite a chasm to jump.
We need to average one comment a minute
@JasonI had to go punch a wall, but now I'm back. Even if one were to somehow translate Labor Day meaning a time only to honor American labor, do you mean to tell me that this tea party fucker at your bar didn't get that it takes American/local labor to pour the tequila and keep the bar open (eg the barkeep and staff), to distribute the devil juice to bars and restaurants and shops, to transport it to those outlets, to design and produce advertisements with scantily clad women, etc.? What a neeb. Sucker punch that fool.
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Fuck the Jokies
Wait, is the VT coach's name Beiber?
Good use of Neeb, DB.
No, it's Beamer. Damn, I was hoping to mock him for that.
Unnecessary capitalization there....
lou holtz again. he is picking ND to come in during halftime and win the game.
Yah, What Dusty said.
I should try punching walls.
Trying my best to whore out some comments.
When did Granny Clampett join ESPN?
kill Kill KILL Lou Holtz!!
If there's whoring to be done, I shall do my part.
I HATE LOU HOLTZ
Lou Holtz is okay when he says good things about Cal.I dunno I hardly ever watch TV.
LOU HOLTZ IS THE PAST OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL!
Fucking Granny Clampett. HAHAHAHAHAHA
dodgers dont even get a pregame show on kcal tonight?beautiful
Lou Holtz only serves to tell stories that don't go anywhere. Like the time he caught the ferry to Shelbyville. He needed a new heel for m'shoe. So he decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So he tied an onion to his 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. Gimme five bees for a quarter, you'd say. Now where was I... oh yeah. The important thing was that he had an onion tied to his belt, which was the style at the time. You couldn't get white onions, because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...
@Dusty - I couldn't agree more. However, not 15 seconds after my post, yet a third patron pointed out that this minor disagreement was occurring in a pub that:* Is owned by two British ex-pats (hey John and John!)* Has a Union Jack hanging directly above said tea bagger's head* Has Mr. C's favorite "Keep calm and carry on" signage displayed throughoutand, most importantly:* Employing several local residents who pay taxes, spend locally and generally tolerate the right of a racist jackass to express his dying views of society.Still, I like my Day Labor Day idea.
i just watched the most hopeless round of family feud ever.
Jason, I still don't understand:'I tossed out a joke similar to "tequila is appropriate it were Day Labor Day!"'
I'm watching a pretty crappy episode of the X-Files.
Keep calm and carry on, then.
Do the Midshipmen play Notre Dame this year?
Really, this X-Files episode is going in strange places.
Mulder: "You're not making any sense. Make sense to me." That's what I'm thinking about this episode.
@MLASFI initially read that as "misshapen"
They are a bit misshapen though.
