I WANT THE FUCKING MONKEY!!!

I also want Smonk.

rbnlaw said...

Better get 2 ready. Mr. F might go postal if he loses.

Steve Sax said...

Won't you take me to

SMONKEYTOWN

NicJ said...

just cut the smonk in half.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

私はサルを獲得し、私は勝利しなければならない、氏はFにする唯一の障害があるだろう!私は勝利しなければならない!私は、モンキーを有する場合に限りあなたのためのモンキーあっしでも。

Orel said...

What he said.

Orel said...

Smonk frowns on your violent solutions, Nic.

Josh S. said...

Picking up from the previous thread, if SD and ATL both win tomorrow (assuming ATL loses today), does SD win the West outright based on head-to-head? Or do they still play a one game playoff in SD?

Josh S. said...

I phrased that weird, but I think you know what I meant.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

ニックは正しいことを確認します。サルは、2つに分かれている必要があります。それは、私たちの両方をなだめるための唯一の方法です。

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

アトランタ、サンディエゴは明日勝てば、ワイルドカードの3つの方向のネクタイがあります。ジャイアンツとパドレスが、1つのゲームのプレーオフを持っているゲームの敗者がブレーブスを果たしている。

Orel said...

"Yes. #want RT @rickwit @keithlaw Braves, Padres win tomorrow. That forces 3 way tie?"

Josh S. said...

Oh yeah. I forgot. ATL needed to win today AND tomorrow to clinch the WC.

As for him that I get a monkey, and I must win, there will be the only obstacle to make F!I must win!Overwhelm a monkey for you only when I have a monkey; but.

日本語への翻訳は私ので、私は同じくらい私はそれらを行うことができますか面白いを参照してください日本語でできるように投稿しています楽しませる。

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

残念ながら、私は、ゲーム中に日本語で面白い黙想を投稿することができなくなりますので、ダウンタウンの今夜するつもりだ。

Dusty Baker said...

If Gnats clinch a playoff spot, will they use chardonnay in locker room instead of champagne? Anchor Steam instead of Bud Light?

Dusty Baker said...

Per TBLA:

"John Lindsey is the #Dodgers acting hitting coach tonight. Russell Martin is "special assistant to the bench coach"

Dusty Baker said...

Per Dusty Baker:

Where the hell is everyone?

Dusty Baker said...

Broxton is bullpen coach tonight?

Mr. Customer said...

I'm here, DB. For some reason, my browser keeps scrolling down to yesterday's game thread, instead.

No…wait, that's just me doing that

Dusty Baker said...

Well, this AL v FL game isn't turning out to be much. Nor is the Stanford v Oregon.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

Do you have an iPad case recommendation? Finally about to pull the trigger on one of these soon so researching cases/sleeves/portfolios.

Mr. Customer said...

Dusty,

The book-jacket style case is the one I have. The vanilla model seemed a bit crappily made, and didn't want to shell out 80 bucks for the leather one, though it looks nice.

Most of the time, I just use it out of the case because it looks so damn cool, but on the plane, etc., it's perfect.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah I need something to withstand the rigors of air travel and having to tote it to meetings all over the place. And to spill martinis on it.

karina said...

*shakes head*

NicJ proposed the same solution as King Solomon, he's a historic figure for the Jewish, Christian, Orthodox Christian and Islamic religions.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Mr. Customer said...

Epale, karina!

MR. F said...

I WANT THE MONKEY!

MR. F said...

Alright time for Arcade Fire. Cya!

rbnlaw said...

At home drinking beer, Vinny.

rbnlaw said...

Oregon/Stanford getting ready for round 2.

rbn getting ready for round 6.

Oh yeah. . .

Dusty Baker said...

At home drinking beer, Vinny!

Not w RBN, though.

rbnlaw said...

If I post in an empty GT, does it make a sound?

rbnlaw said...

DB and RB,
Brothers from different mothers, drinking together in solitude.

rbnlaw said...

Also waiting for Mrs. RB to get home.
Going to see The Social Network.

I'm not much of a movie goer, but I'm going to see this one.

Dusty Baker said...

I like how Vinny was saying how Wide Eyes takes everything so seriously right when the camera caught His Eyeness goofing around in the dugout with gum hanging out of his mouth.

rbnlaw said...

In reading MLASF's posts, I am now curiously hungry for sushi.

rbnlaw said...

His Eyeness.

Classic.

Dusty Baker said...

Checking one more time...anyone else heading out to the Yard tomorrow?

rbnlaw said...

Stanford having their way with the Ducks.

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty asked me if we were all going to be sad that the Taiwan song was over for the season. Oddly, I am.

rbnlaw said...

2 soccer games and Arsenal/Chelsea.

No, not going, although I was going to the Shortstop. Not now, alas.

Dusty Baker said...

But how's the football game going, RBN?

*ducks*

Dusty Baker said...

^ No pun intended

Dusty Baker said...

I'll be down the pub watching the derby and rooting against you lot, RBN.

Spanktopus said...

AAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWW

YYYYYYEEEEEEEEAAAAAHHHHHHH!


Body Count- There goes the Neighborhood

Dusty Baker said...

"Abreu went quickly to Johnson"

Spanktopus said...

The Gators are horrible

Spanktopus said...

@ Dusty

Don't forget to make sweet,sweet love to Vin if you see him tomorrow.

Dusty Baker said...

I will, and I will dry hump Loney one last time this season.

Josh S. said...

I am unlikely to make it to the last game. My agent will be contacting the VORP prize committee to begin offseason negotiations.

Or Mr. C can just knit me a monkey with the Cave Emptorem logo on it.

Mr. Customer said...

Way to F it up there, Matt.

Steve Sax said...

What was the Taiwan song? Hu Are You?

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh

I'm sure we can come to some sort of arrangement.

Mr. Customer said...

^Agreement, but I guess that works, too.

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Y'all
It looks like we have a real slugfest this evening.

Spanktopus said...

WOW!

MeanieBreanie said...

Whoo hoo, we make score!

Spanktopus said...

No NO-NO

Mr. Customer said...

Double play -> two run home run

Balance is restored.

Spanktopus said...

That Marvin Gaye was a bad-ass.He's getting down on the ovation channel right now.

Spanktopus said...

Abreu's pic on gameday looks as if someone is flipping him off

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
Marvin was indeed a badass. I loved Mercy Mercy Me, Let's Get it On, and Heard it Through the Grapevine. Heck, I love all that old Motown music. It's a shame how he died. His father shot him in a domestic dispute.

MeanieBreanie said...

Barajas scores and it sure is quiet in here. We are an apathetic bunch.

Josh S. said...

Kemp is Mr. October (1st thru 3rd).

Spanktopus said...

@ MB

Yeah it was a crazy situation

Mr. Customer said...

How weird is it that Chad was the player I was most worries about 5 months ago?

Spanktopus said...

I'm still disturbed that I won't have a proper Vin sendoff.

HATE YOU DISH AND FOX SPORTS.

Dusty Baker said...

Only GBA I've liked all season. Thanks Nancy Bea!

Spanktopus said...

Now I'm getting pissed. I missed out on Nancy Bea jamming GBA.

Josh S. said...

The hell with this game! qubo is showing old He-Man episodes!

Dusty Baker said...

Vinny said Bills' bat probably died of exhaustion.

Dusty Baker said...

Didn't mean to rub that in, Spank.

NicJ said...

So, how is everyone's night going?

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Nic. It's pretty quiet in here tonight.

NicJ said...

everyone ready for their respective fantasy football matchups tomorrow?

im a little pissed i have to wake up early to set my lineup because of all my questionable players.

Especially since im probably losing either way.

Spanktopus said...

@ Nic

Hells yeah!

Gloves are coming off

MeanieBreanie said...

Ready as I can be. Spanky and I are projected within one point of each other. As usual, I'm sure it will be a slugfest between us. Neither one wants to be 1-3. Refresh my memory, who are you up against?

Dusty Baker said...

Whose ass am I going to miraculously kick tomorrow?

Oh yeah, it's MLASF. *confidence quickly wanes*

Dusty Baker said...

Hilarious dugout audio. Like how Wide Eyes is getting hungry and so everyone yelled for a sandwich from Kershaw - just like happened with Ausmus yesterday. Kid K as slipper boy.

Spanktopus said...

KILL KILL KILL

Spanktopus said...

Billz is pitching a nice game from what I can tell from gameday. Thanks Dish and Fox.

Mr. Customer said...

Set with everybody except Steven Jackson. I hope the trend of getting less points every week turns around.

Dusty Baker said...

If Brox is the bullpen coach, does that make him ineligible for the game? Hopefully.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spanky
I'm playing my bench and I think I can still kick your ass ;~)

BRING IT ON!

*must win or she will be eating crow

MeanieBreanie said...

DAMMIT! We let them have one with only 1 out.

Dusty Baker said...

That is some crazy smack out of MB. Best back dat shit up, or Spanky will never shut up about it.

Not sure who I'm rooting for in that matchup.

MeanieBreanie said...

Oh lord, now it's Troncoso. His gameday picture makes him look like a criminal.

NicJ said...

my trend of players underplaying their projections has to end this week.

Almost all of them are hurt so they are getting 5 point projections.

Spanktopus said...

@ MB

We can settle it tomorrow or take it outside right now,Punk

MeanieBreanie said...

@Dusty
Notice I said "must win or will be eating crow".

@Spank
MB has pink boxing gloves and she is ready to take you on at any given time.

NicJ said...

i hate when all my games are early.

Spanktopus said...

I put Ebonic Shawn Green on the bench and I know it's going to bite me on the ass.

Dusty Baker said...

That's what color Spanky's boxing gloves are, too. What a coincidence!

NicJ said...

hopefully it doesnt because i was forced to start LDT.

Spanktopus said...

@ Dusty

My Thong too!

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
Watchout cuz I'm coming after you with 2 of your beloved Rams - Sam Bradford and Mark Clayton. I also have BenJarvus Green-Ellis whoever the f*ck he is.

NicJ said...

Vin likes the DSBG.

Dusty Baker said...

DSBG in tha heezy.

MeanieBreanie said...

Now back to baseball. How did we let these suckers get back in the game?

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

Troncoso

Dusty Baker said...

^ To be fair, runners were Bills'.

Spanktopus said...

Your treading on deep water Baby. Bes relax fool

Josh S. said...

Man-At-Arms is pinch hitting for Teela.

MeanieBreanie said...

D'Oh - Troncoso
How could I have forgotten?

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
This girl likes living on the edge.

Spanktopus said...

Who the fuck is going to pitch the 9th?

NicJ said...

JANSEN!!

Dusty Baker said...

MIMOSAS ARE THE FUTURE OF MY BREAKFAST!

Spanktopus said...

A pot of coffee,Nasty smack and a butt-kicking is on my menu

MeanieBreanie said...

Personally I'm a fan of Bloody Mary Mornings a la Willie Nelson. I gave up on the ole Tequila sunrises some time ago. MB loves Tequila.
Tequila does not love her.

Dusty Baker said...

I was only thinking about Mimosas because of the repetitive Taiwan song.

Dusty Baker said...

For the record, it will be Guinness for breakfast for me as I watch Chelsea v Arsenal.

MeanieBreanie said...

I thought maybe Karina's mimosa influence had rubbed off on you.

MeanieBreanie said...

Spank we are pretty evenly matched. Does anyone ever tie in these things? I'm hoping for the remote possibility so harmony can be maintained.

NicJ said...

the lakers are supposed to be at the chelsea v. arsenal game.

Dusty Baker said...

Karina's mimosa cravings first came to light BECAUSE we were talking about the Taiwan song. It all goes back to that theme song.

Dusty Baker said...

No shit, Nic? Cool!

I know Kobe has talked of his admiration for Drogba (Chelsea's striker) so I hope he is wearing the right colours.

Spanktopus said...

I remember that mimosa thread

NicJ said...

JANSEN'D!!!

Dusty Baker said...

A party is being made by us!

Steve Sax said...

No yipping from y'all: POST-GAME THREAD UP.

Spanktopus said...

*runs out the front door naked holding Smonk, Grover and a ghetto blaster playing Depeche Mode

MeanieBreanie said...

A party indeed! Toward the end it got a little too close for comfort.

Steve Sax said...

Spanktopi are Spanktopi so why can it be

You should get mad from a missing PGT

Steve Sax said...

(dum dum dum!)
