So a bit of perplexing results came from last week’s blog. Before we report them to you, let us first ask you this: have any of you actually SEEN Major League? The reason we ask this is because of 8 votes, 3 (and the majority) people chose the quote, “Would you please put some pants on? I feel weird having to ask you twice.” That choice was a trick. It’s not from Major League. It’s from The Hangover. Phil says it to Alan in the hotel room when they all wake up in the morning. Yes, it’s a funny line. No, that doesn’t mean you pick it. We specifically asked you what your favorite line from Major League was. We should’ve known better than to give you a trick choice. No one voted for Jake’s “I’m hung over, my knees are killing me and if you’re going to pull this shit, at least you could’ve said you were from the Yankees” or Doyle’s “Heywood leads the league in most offensive categories, including nose hair. When this guy sneezes, he looks like a party favor,” which was Lisa’s personal favorite. Only 1 individual chose Doyle’s “…and he walks the bases loaded on 12 straight pitches. How can these guys lay off pitches that close?” This is one of Serena’s favorite scenes in the entire movie. For some reason, 2 people chose Doyle’s (yes, Doyle is responsible for 90% of the movie’s best quotes), “You can’t say goddamn on the air…Don’t worry. Nobody is listening anyway.”Yes, this was amusing, but is it really funnier that the “lay off pitches that close” line? We think not. Lastly, only 2 people voted for Brother’s all-time favorite line and inspiration for last week’s blog post title, “Look at this f*cking guy.”
Now that we’re done making fun of you for making the ra-tarded mistake of choosing a quote from the wrong movie, let us move on to an actual blog. We swear it’s real this week! It’s not about mini giraffes on a treadmill! We actually went to a baseball game this week. First, don’t forget to check out Lisa’s post about Mets’ Opening Day.
We took the train to the game again because it’s way cheaper than driving in and parking in the expensive parking garages. At the stadium, we bumped into several “celebrities.” First, we saw a man dressed in dirty and ragged clothing who looked exactly like Dave Grohl from the Foofighters. In all honesty, it really could’ve been Dave Grohl because if memory serves us (and it often doesn’t), we believe he dressed that way back in the day when he was Nirvana’s drummer. We rode the escalator with Eric Byrnes, who wore a navy blue Yankees hat. At least we think it was Eric Byrnes. He sure did look like Byrnesie. In our section, we spotted a redheaded man with a Magnum PI moustache who looked exactly like Jeff Foxworthy. Finally, on the jumbotron, we spotted a woman who we swear looked like P!nk drinking a beer. Anyone know if P!nk is a baseball fan? And if she drinks beer while pregnant? Cos’ then it really might’ve been P!nk.
We got to the stadium around 6:10, so we figured we’d try to visit Monument Park again. Needless to say, it was yet another TBB Fail.
After stuffing our faces, Lisa rolled Serena’s fat ass up a few ramps (it’s always good to get some cardio in) to the upper deck where our seats were located. Before reaching our destination, we bumped into our ex-boyfriend.
The good news is that Serena was reunited with her future husband, Justin Morneau…even if it was from a slight distance.
The game went by rather quickly. After the Yankees scored 4 runs in the 1st and 2nd, the Yankees’ offense was relatively quiet. The Twins made a few mock attempts at rallying without success.
We made it onto the D train easily, barely having to wait in the station. Unfortunately, when we got off at the 7th Avenue station to transfer to the E, we discovered that the E train temporarily wouldn’t be running on that track for maintenance reasons. Thankfully, we knew where the nearest F train station was (and by nearest, we mean four blocks over and two blocks down), so we just walked over (look at us exercising!). Just a slight detour. No biggie.
Only a few baseball notes this week:
As many of you probably heard by now, Manny Ramirez has officially retired from baseball…because he didn’t feel like serving his 100-day suspension for testing positive for steroids…again. Wow, Manny. You never cease to amaze us. You’re truly a special breed of animal. Congratulations. A$$ clown.
Has anyone seen the Head & Shoulders commercial where Joe Mauer makes fun of Troy Polamalu? It’s hilarious. By the way, we just Googled. It appears that Troy Polamalu is Greek Orthodox. In case you were interested…
We’re watching Sunday night baseball and prior to the game, an ESPN interviewer spoke to Clay Buchholz. We don’t like spreading rumors, but we strongly feel that he is malnourished. He might be anorexic. Someone should call a medical professional. It could be an emergency.
We’re happy to report that tonight’s blog only took us three hours as opposed to last week’s ridiculous marathon. We think we might be getting better at this. More focused…
Ooooh, JD Drew just hit a single. Serena picked him up for Tigers Love Pepper yesterday! Score!
