Game 14 Thread: April 20 @ Colt .45s, 5p


Ted Lilly (1-0, 0.00) vs. JA Happ (1-0, 3.75).

Today we continue the road show with the first of three games at Houston. The Colt .45s, that is; not the Astros. This past Tuesday and for every home game on Friday, players will don the throwback Colt .45s logo (which blessedly originated with no extraneous apostrophe, which would have been a big disappointment for me) to commemorate 50 successful proud years of the franchise. The team finally swept aside controvery about including a gun in the logo, which was original and therefore historically accurate. As if crime in, say, Houston's 5th Ward in the last 50 years has all been the result of and a misguided reaction to a simple baseball logo.

That brings us to my favorite malt liquor, Colt 45. Since my college days, I've quaffed this swill proudly successfully, and still find time to snag a few tall boys of if or the occasional 40oz when the occasion arises. Today and this weekend are such occasions. I'll have to go to a liquor store that "isn't on the way home" to purchase my 40 ounces of golden goodness, but it will be worth it.  Hopefully I can be half as smooth as this guy when I'm drinking it:



I hope you can join me in toasting the weekend series with a nice cold Colt 45. Because, as the old ad says, It works every time!

LET'S DO THIS SHIT!

Hideo Nomo said...

Lando's not a system!

Fred's Brim said...

unga bunga

Orel said...

Wow, a lot of guys I haven't heard of starting for the Astros.

Dusty Baker said...

This thread has all the makings of...well, a very debaucherous thread. I endorse it wholeheartedly.

Orel said...

Sellers tattoos a single!

Orel said...

KEMPHR!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FYFST

Steve Sax said...

2-0 in the first thanks to a Kempy HR. Great start!

Orel said...

Nice curve by Lilly!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kemp has an OPS of 1.500!

NicJ said...

Blue is pinching Lilly.

Orel said...

Ajellis GR double!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ajellis fears no pitch.

Orel said...

Lilly walks!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The Lilly giveth, and the Lilly taketh away.

Orel said...

Squeeze and squeeze alike.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nice going, Sellers. Hippie.

Orel said...

Lilly issuing more free passes than a drunk bouncer.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Some family is staying at my Mom's house this weekend. They're from Northern California (Giants fans). I turned on the TV just in time to see Bison smash his 8th homer of the season. The look of disgust on their faces...that's something money can't buy! :D

Orel said...

Ethier RBI #19! 3-0 Dodgers!

Orel said...

Very nice, CB!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ethier? Ethier.

karina said...

Epale everyone! i'm on time to watch Loney to get out of the slump :)

karina said...

next time, i guess *sighs*

"Ted Lilly is getting a generous strike zone by umpire". After that painful walk-off, we kinda deserve that.

Alex said...

There you go Karina, lead off double by Loney!

Spank said...

Boozellis!

karina said...

Call it! *Snoopy dancing*

Cliff Beefpile said...

Matt Kemp, he'll kick you apart. He will also show mercy.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Cliff Beefpile said...

Wow! Karina really did call it (Loney's slump-busting double). Strong work!

Alex said...

I'm pretty sure Snyder would have disintegrated if Kemp lowered the boom on that play at the plate...

rbnlaw said...

45?

rbnlaw said...

Listening to the game, watching my boy. The one I'm watching isn't going well.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That is why you fail, rbn.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The 45 grab, not the boy.

Hideo Nomo said...

Stupid Steiner said it was two out when Lee came up. I couldn't figure out why Altuve was trying to go home.

Alex said...

Yeeeeeaaaaahhh, Urine needs to be sitting for the majority of the season....

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Is this going to be Lilly's worst career quality start?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Can Ajellis play first next year?

karina said...

*cries*

Cliff Beefpile said...

Ted Lilly has no butt. He's like the antithesis of Broxton.

Steve Sax said...

Mets, down 3-2 to the Giants, just tied it in the bottom of the ninth. 3-3, Mets still batting with one out.

Cliff Beefpile said...

AJEllis has a hell of an arm!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That works.

Steve Sax said...

Strike 'em out, throw 'em out DP!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I thought Olive Oyl was the antithesis of Broxton.

Steve Sax said...

AJellis had a great arm in Milwaukee, too, when he threw it into center field.

Steve Sax said...

And we lost that game btw.

Dodgers up 3-1 through six

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sax isn't bitter.

Steve Sax said...

Fuck Sam (the jiffy lube guy)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

SoSG Sax: Not getting bitter since 2006

Steve Sax said...

Sax's Racer 5 IPA isn't bitter, either

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's a shame.

Steve Sax said...

Sax's last oil change at 2500 miles must have been too early

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm such a whore.

(cries)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FYFST

Dusty Baker said...

DVR'ing this one, Vinny!

Only in bottom of first.

Orel said...

Nice DP, Lindblom!

Steve Sax said...

Of course, giants take the lead in the tenth

Steve Sax said...

Mr la sc, what is fyfst again?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck your fucking spring stats.

Spank said...

F.I.S.T.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It should be FYFSS, but I like the T better.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

JANSEN WALK FIRST BATTER HE JUST LIKE BROXTON HAR HAR HAR HOW MANY INNING IN BASEBALL?

Steve Sax said...

Mets threatened in the tenth but giants win 4-3.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kenley Jansen is good at throwing baseballs.

Steve Sax said...

Gwynn is not too good with swinging bats.

Orel said...

Astros' SS putting on a show.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Javy time!

Cliff Beefpile said...

It's even easier to hate the Astros when they're wearing those black and orange uni's.

Orel said...

WIN!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Got him looking!

Cliff Beefpile said...

11-3. Not bad.

Jason said...

Making party by firing revolvers straight in the air, Yosemite Sam style.

Also making party by drinking 40s, Dusty style.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If you were really doing it Dusty style, you would be unconscious by now.

Paul said...

We won? We won!!!!

Paul said...

Changed it to the Laker game... And now changing that

Orel said...

PGTUP!
