  1. Look at it this way, Obby: You've been right every time!
  2. Hiya, GGET! Good to have you around again. No, I didn't get a scrapbook. She just did things like that for our little brother, since he was . . . . Well, I think "special" is the accepted term in today's social climate. Heck, we all did little things for our special little brother. I used to tie his shoes for him. But after he got married, it really wasn't my place anymore.
  3. I remember that book! Do you still have the cool poster she drew, with Kaline swinging that classic swing, and "Thanks For The Memories - 3000" written on it?
  4. When Lolich pitched the final game of the '68 series, I was home with my family watching it on tv. When it was over, we (including my mom and even my dad, who never really cared a whit about baseball) all went out of the house. The entire neighborhood (in Warren) had erupted into the street, and everybody all over the neighborhood was going nuts, whooping and hollering, blowing car horns, and generally acting like idiots. It was great. In '72 we were living in Ohio, and nobody I knew was much of a baseball fan. I listened to a lot of games on the radio, though, and was happy to hear them clinch. In '84 I was living in Florida, and watched the series with my wife, who had converted from being a Reds fan to the Tigers, partly because of Sparky Anderson and mostly because of me. We celebrated together in private. In '87 I was still in Florida, so I didn't get to follow the season much. I don't remember even seeing them clinch.
  5. Wear a pair of deely-boppers and some swim fins. That way he'll know you're not stuffy, but just a regular Joe.
  6. Yes, but very pleasant, in a mammalian sort of way. :eek:

  8. Castillo upset Tigers decided to walk him June 25, 2002 FREE PRESS NEWS SERVICES MIAMI -- Luis Castillo was upset Monday to learn that Tigers manager Luis Pujols planned to walk him intentionally if he had batted in the ninth inning Saturday with a 35-game hitting streak on the line. "Don't tell me that," Castillo said. "That's bad. I'd have a bad reaction, because I needed a hit. I'd be really, really, really mad." The game ended with Castillo on deck when teammate Tim Raines hit a sacrifice fly that gave the Florida Marlins the victory. On Sunday, Pujols said he and bench coach Felipe Alou agreed that with a base open and a tie game, they would not have given Castillo a chance to beat them. "I don't know why he'd say that," Castillo said. "I know he's trying to win the game, but I'm trying to get a hit. The fans were waiting for that at-bat." Castillo said he doesn't know Pujols well. Both are from the Dominican Republic, as is Alou. Castillo said he heard that some Dominican fans were angered by the manager's comments. Castillo went 0-for-4 Saturday, ending the longest streak in the major leagues in 15 years. ______________________________________ Ok, so Luis Castillo is a jerk. "The fans were waiting for that at-bat." Waaaah! Hey! Luis! Get your big head out of your tight ass! The game is about winning, you pud-pulling putz, not about give Luis Castillo a fifth chance to be a hero after he's already blown four previous chances. Schmuck. What a butthead. What a loser.
  9. What would be new about Weaver being a PH? Hasn't he always been a pecker head?
  10. We wouldn't take NJ for a dead sewer rat and a bent bottle cap. Leave New Jersey where it is, thank you. With the prevailing winds blowing west-to-east, we prefer it that way.What's that? Oh! You were talking about Nick Johnson! Oh, well. That's a different bag o' cats then. Never mind.
  12. You're all forgetting about the adjusted LPT, which tells us how Q would have posted, if this had been the Cleveland Indians message board. By tossing the magic chicken bones and reciting the special incantation known only to mystical stats adjusters, a procedure guaranteed to give 98.6% accurate results regarding what definitely would have been the case in events that never even happened (this is also known as the Radically Subjunctive Metaphysical Prediction index, or RSMP), I can state with complete certainty that on 82.5132% of all sports-related message boards the equivalent of qsilver would have posted the equivalent of a response (adjusting for possible differences if he were using a Dvorak keyboard, and factoring in the percentage probability of his using an iMac), but if we consider only baseball message boards, that rises to a whopping 97.8124%. So I think it's unquestionable that we will see a qsilver response on this thread. Besides, qsilver has always been a gamer.
