Pitying Fools

Things Jon Sterling said during the yankee game tonight that nauseated me:

1. Jeter missed the game with some type of flu or something. Jon said, "They showed a shot of Derek Jeter in the dugout, and he looks so sick. It's amazing that he's even here. But he's the captain, so he's here to support his team." Okay, have you noticed that Mr. "Will Play Under Any Circumstances" has been missing an awful lot of games lately? Even though Torre supposedly is not letting him play (possibly, according to Rebecca's theory, because Jeter's playing really crappily, so why not jump at the chance to bench him?). But still, if you're gonna tell me for all these years how, "If he can walk, he can play," then don't turn it into, "Wow, he's not playing, but he IS in the dugout, even though he's sick. AMAZING."

2. In the bottom of the ninth, no outs, and the yanks up a single run, Jon described the yanks' rally in top of the ninth as "the yanks' winning rally."

There was more, but this one other thing deserves a more in-depth post. You'll know it when you see it.

Also, Suzyn Waldman said "RBA" instead of "RBI" tonight.

There was a new show on NYC's WFAN, which had several hosts, one of whom is a Red Sox fan since after the 86 Series, when he switched over from the Mets. I only heard the beginning of the show, but this dude said "If Mad Dog makes you mad with what he says about the yanks, you're gonna HATE me." Nice.

And I can't believe I forgot to mention this, but the Mr.T In Your Pocket device is SO handy for when McCarver is announcing. Especially "Quit your jibba jabba," and the more to-the-point "Shut up, fool." It sounds like when Mr. T recorded the messages, he was listening to McCarver announce a game with his favorite team playing in it. He's that pissed. Unfortunately, by the end of the game, I was exclusively playing "Don't make me mad! Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr."
