The "Suck It" Post

Okay, I have to start with this one. Suck it, Yankee fan troll who attempted to post the following comment here on September 13th:


no shot the RedSox win the WS. One of a few things will happen -

1.) Loss to Oakland
2.) Loss to Detroit
3.) Loss to Yankees (if they shockingly make it to face you)
4.) Loss to Dodgers

Enjoy being gay



Is that classic or what? Oh lawd I love it. Of course, for him to admit that basically we could go as far as the World Series in mid-September, as if it were something to be mocked, was already a victory. The fact that we actually went on to win it all just gold-ifies that comment. His consolation: He finally got a comment through! By the way, I'm enjoying being extremely gay today as a fan of the World Champion Boston Red Sox, thanks!

Next up, suck it, Jim Donaldson, for writing an article called, and I swear this is not a joke, Is Jose Lobaton the 21st Century Bucky Dent?. With no due respect, sir, you are fired.

Same theme, suck it, Tyler Kepner--see this Joy of Sox post.

Suck it, MLB, for forcing the nation radio call on all the WEEI affiliates for the World Series. Unless you lived in or right near Boston, you suddenly lost Castiglione just in time for the World Series. Vermont, Maine, Connecticut, western Mass., most of New Hampshire, and half of Rhode Island had the local feed all year, and through two rounds of the playoffs, and then boom, they're gone, even though they're still in the booth calling the games. I don't see the reason for that. Maybe someone can explain it to me. And don't just say "money," as people would be listening anyway. In fact, I feel like they'd only lose listeners by taking away the local announcers. But maybe I'm wrong. Either way it's a shitty thing to do to an entire region of loyal fans.

Suck it, anyone who was brainwashed by WEEI to hate your team. It makes no sense to me that this loyal fanbase who "believed" and "kept the faith" for 86 years without a championship could suddenly say, "well, they had a bad year, I think I just won't care anymore and/or hate them now, I just can't take ONE YEAR of sub-par baseball and I no longer trust the owners who just brought me two championships after 86 years without one." Yet Tom Caron keeps bringing this shit up, right up to last night after we'd won yet another World Series. I still think we're talking about just the loud minority, aka the five dipshits who keep calling the radio stations to complain over and over. But to those five, you are NOT allowed to go to the parade. Leave space for the real fans.

Suck it to the radio types who kept talking about whether Red Sox fans are "on board" or not, or whether the team is "back." They'll probably be on the air during the parade going "when we come back, we'll talk about whether you're on board for this parade." We're Red Sox fans, we're permanently on board. If we wanted to only be on board in good times, we'd be Yankee fans. We've had a lifetime to learn this lesson. And the Red Sox can never be "back" because they never go away.

Okay, this is kind of a half-suck it, but this stuff about 1918, Jesus! There were so many references to it last night, you'd think we hadn't won a World Series since 1918. We've been through that already! Yes, it's a cool bonus to win at home, but people act like there was this long wait and that the team had failed us for all these years, when the poor 2004 team is probably sitting at home going, Hello??? Some fans even brought signs to the game that just said "1918," without even specifying why. So bizarre. Fox was showing the usual "price of milk" shit! To me this is the same thing as saying, "and the Reds clinch their first pennant on a Tuesday since 1883! Amazing!" or some crap. Again, VERY happy to clinch at home, BUT, World Series wins are not divided into home and away clinches. They both count the same.

I totally agree. I thought the emphasis on 1918 was really contrived.

Love your suck-it list. I trust if you were gay, you'd thoroughly enjoy it. Why not?
 
I believe that idiotic, always-wrong MFY troll is the same one who sent this to my blog on September 26:

"Can't wait to watch the Sox lose to the Rays in the ALDS ...ooohweee will that be fun"

Yes.
The ALDS *was* fun.
And, hey, the ALCS was also fun.
But the World Series was the most fun!
Ooohweee!
 
Mom here:

Happy Halloween, Kepner, you horse's ass. You're probably forcing your kids to go out trick-or-treating dressed as Jeter.
 
Yesterday, I walked around downtown Rutland doing some last minute Halloween shopping with a grin on my face that nothing could wipe off. We had a little Halloween party with friends and their kids, and then we all went trick-or-treating....my 9 year old was Jarrod Saltalamacchia!! He looked so awesome. Today is weird weather for November 1st in upstate New York-63 and rainy. The tradition my boys started (wearing some sort of Red Sox shirt or jersey everyday since the beginning of the series) has continued-today we have a 2007 WS champions and an Ellsbury t-shirt. And I still can't stop grinning!!!! It was so amazing to be able to watch this series with my boys-the 9 year old even stayed awake for the whole game on Wednesday. Happy happy happy. Oh, and we are in the market for a new puppy-the boys want to name it Xander! We'll see......
Dewey & Co. (Kim)
 
Awesome!!!

Poor kids will miss half the candy, not being able to move to their left.
