*crashes into billboard*

LoneLy Fan said...

Numnber 7! No way I am going to lose!

Paul said...

Yeeeeehaw!

Dusty Baker said...

(revs)

Dusty Baker said...

@LF

You lost the spelling contest, though!

Dusty Baker said...

This means I'm going to have to iPhone while driving. It's worth the risk of a ticket and/or major accident.

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

Sorry to leave you hanging:

I think it's booty.

QuadSevens said...

How did I miss this competition?! DAMMIT!!

Dusty Baker said...

Sometimes I feel like we're all just part of one big experiment that EK is conducting.

Dusty Baker said...

And....I need to work.

Dusty Baker said...

(i would say something moderately witty relating to car racing, but my knowledge of such is extremely limited)

Paul said...

Boom.

Spank said...

*runs over digger*

Josh S. said...

@Dusty

That's what it is!

MR.F said...

ahhhhhhhh

Steve K said...

Already missed the first one! Good start!

Dusty Baker said...

(crashes)

Spank said...

killKillKILL

Josh S. said...

License to Drive is an underrated classic.

Steve K said...

Can we trade to get Wilson Valdez back? Strictly as bullpen help.

MR.F said...

damn, already behind

Eric Karros said...

Man, tallying this up at the end of the day is gonna be a Danica Patrick.

Steve Sax said...

(race day interruption)

anyone else having trouble with the royals / orioles badges today? They're invisible.

(now back to your race)

Paul said...

Bam.

Paul said...

This Is Red 5.

Steve K said...

I'm already out of things to say...

Spank said...

All I did was mention that I wanted to cleanse myself in Lake Minnetonka on twitter and now I am being followed by Bankers,Doctors and some fools who want to cleanse my colon with lemonade.

Dusty Baker said...

Pace car pace car pace car

Dusty Baker said...

Oooooops......that lemonade guy is me.

karina said...

I think I don't really get this!

Jason said...

Work already sucks today. Can we drink and drive during this thing?

Josh S. said...

Did I miss one?

No, I think I'm good.

Dusty Baker said...

@Jason

Like I don't already have an ice cold 40oz on my lap as I circumnavigate the race track?

Spank said...

@ karina

You have to comment once every half hour till 3pm pacific.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

sputter....

Josh S. said...

karina, just comment once every half hour period (Between 8:00 and 8:29, 8:30 and 8:59, and so on...) and you'll be good.

Dusty Baker said...

Can I get a DAMMIT! ?

Josh S. said...

No.

Spank said...

Pit stop.

Dusty Baker said...

Drink it like a mad man yes I do
Fuck tha police and a 502

Paul said...

I lost R-2!

Actually Neeebs is hanging in the back of my x-wing.

Jason said...

@Dusty

DAMMIT!

Steve K said...

Commenting every half hour for four days?!?

Josh S. said...

DADGUMMIT BLOWOUT!

MR.F said...

Well this is a contest I won't win...

Dusty Baker said...

(dry humps Smonk)

LoneLy Fan said...

Damn dentist. I knew I was going to lose this competition because of him. BASTARD!

Spank said...

Engine malfunction...to the shop.

Dusty Baker said...

(does donuts in the infield)

MR.F said...

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh

karina said...

another lost lap!

Josh S. said...

He's going the distance!
He's going for speed!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Balls.

karina said...

Josh, I agree License to Drive is an underrated classic.

LoneLy Fan said...

Had to pit on the first lap. I'm near the back of the pack, but I got the kinks worked out of my motor and plan on coming strong near the end of the race.

Jason said...

Is there a drive-thru liquor store on this track? I'm running low...

karina said...

@Sax Royals-Orioles badges ain't working for me either

Dusty Baker said...

@Jason

I'll slow down when I pass you and pass over some Mickey's Big Mouths to tide you over.

Paul said...

Spanky just tried to car jack me!

Dusty Baker said...

Drive by Spankicide!

Paul said...

*waives at Dusty's car "the dry humper"....from a distance.*

Dusty Baker said...

I'm going to start ripping off more gonads if Blogger and Apple can't get this shit sorted out.

Cc: Steve Jobs, Larry Page

karina said...

@jason drinking and fast cars, what could go wrong? ;)

Dusty Baker said...

Jason also has a carful of blunts and broads.

Jason said...

@karina

Running out of booze, obviously.

Dusty Baker said...

Skadooosh!!!

Josh S. said...

Run, run, run, run, run,
Take a drag or two...

MR.F said...

HAN: I feel terrible.

karina said...

you've just made me grin, Jason

Jason said...

If that'll make you grin, you should try one of my blunts. Or broads, your choice.

LoneLy Fan said...

Blerg

Steve K said...

I missed another one! Time flies when you're not paying attention...

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, J Steve! Step it up. Trader in your Yugo for at least a VW bus.

Paul said...

Bam!

Dusty Baker said...

Oyster Pubes likely out for season? Yikes. Hate to hear it, Gnat or no.

karina said...

@Jason *blushes* I'm not into blunts or broads :( but I'm already impressed

Paul said...

That is a shame. This would be a great year for the Dodgers to run away with the West...if they didn't stink.

MR.F said...

Chewie helps Han to a platform and then turns as the door
slides open revealing Leia. She, too, looks a little worse for
wear. The troopers push her into the cell, and the door slides
closed. She moves to Han, who is lying on the platform, and
kneels next to him, gently stroking his head.

Josh S. said...

Dun, dun, DUNNNN!

Dusty Baker said...

Juju

Paul said...

I am going to throw a fit if the Water guy doesn't show up at the office soon. I am parched!

karina said...

Oyster Pubes is out for the season...schandefreude?

Josh S. said...

@karina, my first urge is to send Cousins a thank you note (or at least go out to the Yard this weekend and give him an ovation), but as a decent human being, it's hard to celebrate a horrific injury.

LoneLy Fan said...

Here

Paul said...

Yeah I feel bad for Buster. He has worked hard to get to the show and one play really sets him back.

Plus he has to be in pain. Glad no head trauma

Eric Karros said...

Scores and visual updated as of 11:30...

Dusty Baker said...

Uhbybyb

MR.F said...

Can I request different colors? As a Cal alum, being represented by Stanfurd colors is just plain wrong!

LoneLy Fan said...

This is just going to turn into Smonkstakes style quoting of all the nerdiest of movies/tv shows. Take it away Mr. F.

Paul said...

Boom.

Jason said...

Grrr

MR.F said...

@LoneLy Fan
...going to? It already is!

karina said...

@Josh you're right, sometimes being a decent human being is a curse.

MR.F said...

LEIA: Why are they doing this?

Dusty Baker said...

Jkbugkvkhggiy

Steve K said...

Hmmm... I don't think I'm doing very well at this...

Dusty Baker said...

Whew....out of that mtg so now I can post more masterful insight and race car inspired witticisms..

Dusto_Magnifico said...

I'm missing a girdle sprocket... really starting to slow me down

karina said...

100!

Dusty Baker said...

101

Dusty Baker said...

Blogger time is a full 2-2.5 mins off every other clock in the universe.

Dusty Baker said...

LoneLy Fan said...

Here

Josh S. said...

Damn you straight to hell, lunch!

Eric Karros said...

sync test

Jason said...

Beer status: empty.

DAMMIT!

Eric Karros said...

yup, clock is a little off

Eric Karros said...

n'sync test

Eric Karros said...

yup, timberlake is still crushing it

Josh S. said...

Only one lap back, but Dusty and Paul are unlikely to slip up.

(aims at their tires)

Paul said...

I was thrown to the wolves!

Steve K said...

ok

MR.F said...

HAN: They never even asked me any questions.

Eric Karros said...

I hope you're happy with your colors now Mr F

MR.F said...

HAHAHAHA.

Eh, it's an upgrade.

Dusty Baker said...

Good comedic stuff, EK.

Dusty Baker said...

(drives fast)

Dusty Baker said...

(gets in quick lunch before the next segment)

It's the SoSG diet plan.

Paul said...

Speed speed speed!!!!!

MR.F said...

The cell door slides open. Lando and two of his guards
enter.

Paul said...

Speed speed speed!!!!!

Josh S. said...

PUNCH IT!

karina said...

missed another lap!

Josh S. said...

This is pulling my attention away from the puzzle.

rbnlaw said...

What the fuck is wrong with my engine?

Dusty Baker said...

Mr F is making me hate Star Wars. (sobs)

LoneLy Fan said...

Here.

Steve K said...

I'm still here...

Jason said...

I suddenly regret eating on the SoSG diet.

Dusty Baker said...

I feel the need - the need for speed!

I also have interest in driving faster.

Steve K said...

We'll see if I make the next one...

Dusty Baker said...

(drafts off another car he's about to lap)

I had to look up those racing words.

karina said...

how can you hate Star Wars, Dusty?

Jason said...

I think I just fell asleep at the wheel for a minute. Apologies to the pit crew members I flattened.

Paul said...

*thud*. Oops ran over Neeebs.

MR.F said...

LEIA: Lando.

LoneLy Fan said...

Here.

Josh S. said...

He's a demon on wheels!

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Because Mr F is starting his Smonkstakes bit again, and I'm weary of it.

Also, did you SEE The Phantom Menace?

rbnlaw said...

Is it another lap now?

Spank said...

Back on the track

Yahoo MOFO's!!

MR.F said...

Do you really want me to stop, Dusty?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

assbutt

karina said...

@Dusty I find it a legitimate way of expression.

AND

The Phantom Menace ain't THAT bad! it got Darth Maul and Quin Gon Jinn (looking like Liam Neeson)

Dusty Baker said...

(refuses to get drawn into Karina's debate)

Dusty Baker said...

I can see the finish line.

Except I guess we still have three more days of this tortu....er, fun.

MR.F said...

a

Paul said...

Just the good ol boys....

Jason said...

I'm getting tired of making all these left-hand turns.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

sputter... sputter... sputter...

LoneLy Fan said...

Here.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Blerg

rbnlaw said...

Hot Lap!!

and I was driving like a bat outta hell!

#Meatloaf

Spank said...

Darth Maul was the shit.Lucas fucked up the second trilogy by getting rid of Darth Maul and replacing him with an old fart.

Yahoo MOFO's!!

Steve K said...

in...

Josh S. said...

Phantom Menace is the best of the Prequels. (Which were all pretty damn bad, but they were new Star Wars so they got a pass.)

Josh S. said...

^ I mean, yes, Jar Jar, Jake Lloyd's "acting", and midichlorians were all WRETCHED, but at least it was filmed on location and wasn't a green-screen video game cut scene for two hours.

Spank said...

Oyster Pubes got rocked.

Spank said...

Attack of the Clones is down at the bottom with the Christmas special. Shit,Hardware Wars was better.

karina said...

I don't really hate the prequels

karina said...

missed a lap for a couple of minutes :(

MR.F said...

a

Dusty Baker said...

Hjkgkhgfuyvbk

Spank said...

Checkered flag!

Josh S. said...

Mace Windu tearing shit up in the Tartakovsky cartoon was the best thing to come out of the prequels.

That whole cartoon series in total, really.

Paul said...

Never meanin no harm.

LoneLy Fan said...

Here.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

I keep punching the gas... but I'm not moving...

rbnlaw said...

Vroom, vroom.

rbnlaw said...

Hardware Wars was the shit.

Steve K said...

and again...

Dusty Baker said...

Jhgyugcgfuxufgcufg

Spank said...

Ham Salad.

karina said...

LoneLy Fan said...
