A howdy doo to all of you and we obviously have a few things to discuss. First off, let me just state the obvious…the Dodgers were outclassed, outplayed, outcoached, and outperformed. There’s no other way to put it. And what makes it even worse is this whole city expected to win. It was in the bag. That’s the thing I’ve always noticed about L.A., we just expect things to go our way.

-maybe if Dave Roberts thought about “the feel” of the game instead of Sabermetrics? -maybe if Cody Bellinger realized you need to change things up when you hit a skid? -maybe if someone listened to Steve Garvey?

But you know what? The city of Houston had a sh**ty year, so let’s hope their first World Series cheers them up a little bit. Call it…Karmic Payback. And hopefully the Dodgers will learn a thing or two about playing up to the challenge. You need to rise to the occasion in these games, and not just expect Clayton Kershaw to win every game for you…

First things first, congrats to the Chicago Cubs for winning a post-season game! I guess all it took was keeping Steve Bartman away from Pittsburgh and it was a lock. Well, that and Jake Arrieta… Dude’s a monster. And I presume this will make Mr. Scott Ottersen happy, and it’s always good to see my compatriots with a smile on their face. Not sure who Mr. Carbone is rooting for this post-season (who he bet on?) but let’s hope he’s rooting for a Dodger win on Friday. Can we snap the Kershaw postseason jinx?! And why is he pitching before Greinke? And is Puig gonna play? Too many questions, just gonna say that if the Dodgers win, Fish would be happy, and that’s what we need right now.

And just for the record, Fish is back to drinking vodka. Woo-Hoo! Toss all those expectations of sophisticated drinking with me out the window. You’re lucky we’re not drinking some crap American beer. Allow me the unpleasant joy of drinking my Burnett’s and Dragon Juice. Mmmm….it’s … Continue reading

Merge! Merge! Merge!

For some reason I’m picturing Katniss Everdeen standing in front of the tribe raising her 3-finger salute at the tribes. Suddenly, helicopters can be heard in the distance. Confusion turns to chaos as everyone looks up to see a group of ex-players rappelling down and landing on the beach. They start attacking the “Hunapoyans” with a variety of sticks, logs and coconuts. They are led by Coach, who can be heard about the fray…

“Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought,” he says as he stabs Keith with the dull end of a bamboo pole.

“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity,” as he throws a spear at Jon…

“It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both!” as he hacks at Josh and Reed with a machete…

Other players like Russell, Boston Rob, Tyson, Parvati, Colby, Rupert, Jerri, Malcolm, Brenda and Skupin are part of the carnage. Corinne’s even there, throwing flaming coconuts at Julie whilst holding a cocktail, not … Continue reading
