I love what the band did in Sand.  Those last 12-13 minutes were ACE, Tom Ace.  If I were drinking from the toilet, I might have been killed.
Bouncin' - after all that, fuck they could have kicked their instruments in the face and I would have loved to eat some ice cream.

The real opening day is one of my favorite days of the year.

Any other AL East teams need their home opener spoiled?

75% sure I saw mattstick on his way to the Blue Jays home opener as I was driving back to my hotel.
Wish I had known that was happening tonight, took me an hr to move 6 km into downtown.  :frustrated:
Probably would have bought tickets too.
that's great. people are stupid.

My records are my media for music. They are to be played. Loud and as often as possible.

Jays home opener is for n00bs, I'm going later in the week when they don't have a 30-minute pregame ceremony and there are 30,000 fewer people.

Finally caught my first game of the season today.. Astro's vs A's.  While I'm not a major fan of either (Go Rangers) my dad is a huge A's fan and I live in Houston now so it was still a lot of fun.  Weather was perfect and there were $1 hotdogs all game!  Baseball is here!!

I was treated by one of my vendors to great tickets behind the visitor's dugout at Fenway tonight. We were treated to a thrilling walkoff victory by the Sox. It was so rejuvenating to be back in the stadium after this winter.

God I love baseball.

I'll get my comment in while I can, Mets look damn good so far.
with Harvey, de Grom and Colon as a great top 3 and Niese and Gee can be at least .500 pitchers or better.  this team can make some noise this year.

Jays Take Out The Trash 13-6: Game Fourteen Thoughts

Quote
Did someone say something about trash birds?

The shitheel Baltimore Orioles, a living, breathing, 25-man avatar for the pile of human garbage posing as their manager, Buck Showalter, got their shit-brains knocked out, metaphorically, by the Toronto Blue Jays tonight, and so like so many petty losers before them, decided to try and actually get physical with the Jays.

In another slice of baseballís ongoing real-funny-until-someone-gets-his-brain-scrambled-or-worse stupidity with players whipping balls dangerously close to one another, Rule 5 pitcher Jason Garcia, playing the part of overzealous goon trying to impress the coaches at a hockey training camp, did what he surely thought Showalter would have wanted and threw behind Jose Bautistaís back after allowing a Josh Donaldson double to start the bottom of the seventh of a game that was, at that point, 11-4.

Dumb.

And dumber still because Jose is fucking awesome. A couple pitches later and he homered ó just like he did when shitbag Oriole Darren OíDay threw behind him last week ó and pimped the home run like a man who had just almost been intentionally maimed while playing a damn game of baseball should. He admired his shot, flipped his bat, shouted at second baseman Ryan Flaherty, glared at the dung piles in the Orioles dugout, then celebrated with his teammates like the ball he knocked out of the yard (again) had been hit directly into the souls of the cheapjack little shits who threw at him for no good goddamned reason.

Then, when Jose took the field for the eighth, Showalter, dipshit Adam Jones, and others didnít seem to think he had been respectful enough by not sombrely circling the bases and declining to brush off the fact that the fuckhead Orioles were back in the business of throwing at players who were getting the best of them, like a bunch of little shithead Machado-inspired children. Wahhh, fuckfaces.

Then, because he is a fucking boss and not intimidated by the horseshitting Baltimores or their managerís sad old man thuggery, when Delmon Young stung one to right field, Jose charged it, trying to throw Young out at first ó and nearly did so, much to the chagrin of the idiot Orioles and their idiot announcers, who apparently felt he was hot dogging out there, and were more concerned about this than pointing out the crass and ugly stupidity of their team in trying to maim this guy yet again.

Dumb as fuck.

Donít throw at people intentionally. Ever. But hereís a pro tip, Orioles: maybe especially donít throw at Jose.

I totally agree with this post.  Fuck Buck and his band of tools.  At the game I went to last Friday, Jimenez threw at Sandoval's head because he slid hard (and totally legally) into 2nd base earlier in the game.  No excuse for ever throwing at a guy's head.

I don't know if I agree with the line not to throw at anyone intentionally ever.  I agree with not throwing at anyone's head.
Baseball has always had the unwritten rule to settle the score on the field.
Harvey threw at Utley a week or two ago and hit him in the back. This was after Philly hit 2 Mets, knocking their cleanup hitter out of the game.  Utley took it like a man and went to 1st base and his post game comments were that he'd been hit before.  it was no big deal.  there was no carryover the next game.

I don't think it should carry over as much as some of these divas do nowadays but some games it is handled like professionals and is part of baseball.
