Ramble On Sports

Where sports, pop culture and everything else collide.

More Mets and no ranting

Posted by bigblue123 on December 17, 2009

Our fearless leader has entitled my latest two blog posts “rants.” Honestly, that bothered me — being a middle aged guy, I try and avoid ranting. It scares people (I’m 6’5″ and halfway between 200 and 300 pounds) and every time I see Frank Barone from Everybody Loves Raymond on the tube I think “not me.”

So, here’s a sorry to my last three targets of rants.

To beer drinkers extraordinaire in section 339 at the Meadowlands – “sorry.” It’s selfish of me to be annoyed — it’s your right to guzzle beer non-stop and urinate incessantly during a game. How else could you enjoy the game? I promise to be more cordial as you stomp over me headed to the men’s room muttering obscenities.

To ESPN; sorry. It’s gotta be hard to wade through the thousands of resumes that you get monthly. So many of those sports journalists — so qualified and so experienced. Much better and easier to just whittle the competition down by hiring ex-coaches with NCAA violations in their history. Now, I understand it allows you more time for the real business of ESPN — coming up with new ways to show the hole cards at a poker tournament. Shame on me —  I keep watching!

Finally, sorry to Omar Minaya and “Bravo” on your latest signing. While the Sox were nabbing Lackey and division rival Philadelphia was signing Halladay — you were globetrotting and bringing back Ryota Igarashi from Japan.  Thanks, Omar. I would imagine that the Tommy John surgery he had two years ago has mended and his team (the Yakuit Swallows) will really miss him. I hear it’s almost as tough to play in Yakuit as it is in New York.  A fringe benefit is that maybe this signing will enable us to go out and resign Ken Takahashi. Thanks Omar — just living that Citi Field dream. How’s season ticket sales going anyway? ( I couldn’t resist that one jab)

That’s it — sorry to all and to all a good night!
