Just a MESSy weekend

I was feeling pretty bummed this weekend. I worked on Saturday and tried to get on blogger, and now the internets nazis at my work have blockt blogger. So it looks like I'll just be LoVing from home now. Woe. I really don't know what I'm gonna do for those 9 hours M-F.
But then on Sunday night I read a pretty funny story that I would like to share with you all right now. This will be one of those suite picture stories.

Bottom of the 9th and the Mess are ahead 8-7. Yankees have runners on 1st & 2nd and 2 outs, with GayRod (EP's fave) up at the plate. GayRod pops up a pitch to the right side and slams his bat down in disgust for what was sure to be the final out. But lo and behold, Luis Castillo had other plans, as shown here. Maybe his arms were tired from this.


Castillo's drop led to this reaction from F-Raud, as both runners scored to give the Yankees the improbable victory and F-Raud's 1st blown save as a Mess.


That whole sequence led to all of the Yankees laughing and mocking the MESS and their awfulness. But don't worry MESS fans. Their laughing at you, not with you.


Then on Sunday morning, F-Raud gets into an altercation with Yankees reliever Brian Bruney, who said that F-Raud's act was tired. You know what, he's right. Be a pro. You've got the all-time single season save record, act like you've been there before. Don't celebrate every save like it's game 7 of the World Series. But my favorite quote was this, from F-Raud...
"He better keep his mouth shut and do his job and not worry about somebody else," he said after closing out the Mets' 6-2 win Saturday. "If it came out from somebody big, I might pay attention to it. But somebody like that, it doesn't bother me."
So let me get this straight...you had to confront Bruney because of what he said, but he's not somebody big so you didn't pay attention to it and it doesn't bother you. Got it.

Obviously F-Raud gave his team a spark on Sunday with his war of words during BP. Johan pitched, and, well, maybe pitched is too strong of a word. He had the worst start of his career, so he gave up his ball and went home.


And here are the results.


All of this leads us back to the origin of the MESS and the reason for our being.


The end, and we all lived happily erve* after

An anti-Met post, great way to start the week.

Beth said...

And to answer zeke's question/comment from Friday, I do NOT have a tramp stamp. No tattoos at all actually, although I've thought about getting one for years.

El Padrino said...

Steve said...

"that sucks though, i'll miss ya

Steve said...

"Stay tuned for running diary"


no doubt. i'm curious to see how it all works.

any new bikini girls?

Steve said...

I wonder if Kobe dialed up Shaq last night and gave him a "Suck It, Haterz"

El Padrino said...

shaq was rootin for kobe

El Padrino said...

congrats spiff

H, still the best singer you know said...

Beth, I'm requesting full photographic proof of a lack of tattoos. ;)

H, still the best singer you know said...

No Bikini girls that I saw. The cold and rain probably prevented that.

H, still the best singer you know said...

Man even I was depressed by Castillo's mistake on Friday. Of course, that's because it handed the Yankees a win.

Beth said...

Hilarity from this weekend.

Fmbeth and I went to hang with his parents and at one point we're driving to dinner and his mother reads the bumper sticker off the jeep in front of us and keeps repeating it loudly asking what it means. I was dying in the back seat trying not to laugh to where she could hear me. Finally her husband just said "it's not nice" and she seemed to finally seemed to realize it might be dirty and said "oh, you can explain it to me later".

The jeep's bumper sticker: "If I wanted a Hummer I'd have asked your sister."

(You have to imagine a 65'ish year old lady repeatedly saying that for the full effect.)

El Padrino said...

that's hilarious

El Padrino said...

i wonder what keef thinks a hummer is

Steve said...

"it's not nice"

he shouldn't have told her. he should of been like, "i'm not sure, maybe you should ask our waiter"

El Padrino said...

"it's not nice" and she seemed to finally seemed to realize it might be dirty and said "oh, you can explain it to me later".

maybe he SHOWED her later

old people fuckin is gross

Beth said...

"maybe he SHOWED her later"

OK, now I'm ill - thanks EP!

El Padrino said...

ZEKE-

Following today’s game, Johan Santana told reporters he has been pitching with some aches and pains of late, including a stiff back, a split nail, and a blister, but otherwise he feels ‘fine.’

ToddPacker said...

i agree with keith's take on k-rod... otherwise the post was terrible

ToddPacker said...

phil's hat made me laugh

tem said...

"Didn't make it through the prelims. Thanks for the support tho. Stay tuned for running diary."


you should have told them the only way tem is watching the show is if H is on it.

tem said...

"The jeep's bumper sticker: "If I wanted a Hummer I'd have asked your sister."

(You have to imagine a 65'ish year old lady repeatedly saying that for the full effect.)"


good thing you didn't have to explain a keef (RIP) sanchez to her.

tem said...

tem going to dr J in 20 minutes.

El Padrino said...

the thing with krod is though, he's always done that so not sure why everyone cares about it now

El Padrino said...

and bruney should relax because the fat toad the mets slapped around friday night does the same thing

El Padrino said...

"tem going to dr J in 20 minutes."

condolences

tem said...

krod is a douche

El Padrino said...

some doubt casted in the Iran pres election, shocker

El Padrino said...

"krod is a douche"

i'd like to see tem's douche list

it's probably real long

El Padrino said...

doesnt sound like a pleasant way to die

Beth said...

"i'd like to see tem's douche list

it's probably real long"

I think Mize's douche list would be MUCH longer.

blue said...

ironically, meiz is at the top of tem's douche list

blue said...

lakers fans are funny...they can't even riot properly

blue said...

actually the lakers fans were all going to riot, but most of them showed up fashionably late and the riots were already over.

El Padrino said...

why was kobe jumping up and down like Jordan did when he won

kobe is a joke

El Padrino said...

such a fraud of a person

El Padrino said...

he's probably a robot

blue said...

kobe is a douche

El Padrino said...

what's the difference between the NBA Finals Trophy and Kobe's rape accuser?


A sore butthole.

El Padrino said...

I'm late on this but surprised this doesnt happen more often

El Padrino said...

Plaxico case adjourned 'til Sept. 23. He's free to play this season, so the ball is now in Roger Goodell's court.

interesting

blue said...

maybe the bares can get him

blue said...

probably didn't make national news but Orton was officially named the starter this weekend.

So adjust your fantasy drafts accordingly

El Padrino said...

his stock just went up

blue said...

saw that rex grossman signed with the Texans...so Jug can boo him in person now.

El Padrino said...

he'll play too, scahub is made out of cotton

blue said...

is that why they call him cotton schuab?

El Padrino said...

blue is smrt

blue said...

11 game win streak is now selling tickets

Tyler said...

Man, I am exhausted from rioting last night...

El Padrino said...

impressive

El Padrino said...

la ♥ riots

Tyler said...

Latest tweet from Leroy Smith:

"Alright I'll admit it. Phil called me in to give the guys a motivizational talk b4 game 5. I owed him a favor."

Tyler said...

motivizational is hdh.

blue said...

"outhomering, outscoring stats"

yeah, usually when you score more than the other team you win.


but sometimes when you win, you really lose, and sometimes when you lose you really win...and sometimes when you tie, you really win or lose.

Tyler said...

Thanks, Rosie Perez.

El Padrino said...

"yeah, usually when you score more than the other team you win."

right but 74-28 is a big differential, my point is they are crushin fools

El Padrino said...

"but sometimes when you win, you really lose, and sometimes when you lose you really win...and sometimes when you tie, you really win or lose."

I hate it when you talk like that

blue said...

"right but 74-28 is a big differential, my point is they are crushin fools"

hard to believe but their band of misfit pitchers are actually throwing pretty well lately too.

jason marquis leads the NL in wins? seriously?

El Padrino said...

yeah that's odd

blue said...

tem must be at the penguins victory parade.

blue said...

oh, he doesn't lead the NL in wins now...some other douches got wins since saturday

Keith S said...

"i wonder what keef thinks a hummer is"

Keith S said...

I'm kidding about that. Your mom is a saint

Beth said...

"I axed your mom"

I thought you were blocked from work now.

Keith S said...

The Final Destination looks suite

El Padrino said...

he's home, he starts at like 11 PST

Keith S said...

"I thought you were blocked from work now."

I am. But I don't go to work until 11:00, Bethdrino

Beth said...

"I am. But I don't go to work until 11:00, Bethdrino"

Is that EST?

hilarity, odom ranking on gasol

isiah thompson said...

keef when they blocked this place at my work, I was able to get in a few times by clicking on the post title and posting comments that way - clicking the "comments" link would always be blockt.

might want to try that if you can at least get on the site.

isiah thompson said...

WMCJ has been on one of the Encore channels a lot recently.

blue said...

i heard the father son thing on mike&mike this morning, but missed who the other 2 were.


so i guess i didn't actually hear it.

blue said...

"WMCJ has been on one of the Encore channels a lot recently."

the black channel

El Padrino said...

i love the equipment/towel guys during the celebration

so awkward and white

spaceman spiff said...

other 2 were rick/brent barry and matt/matt goukas

isiah thompson said...

nobody went and hugged Colby, thought that was funny.

isiah thompson said...

and Colby has stopped trying to immitate the way MJ talks. He's gone street.

Keith S said...

"keef when they blocked this place at my work, I was able to get in a few times by clicking on the post title and posting comments that way - clicking the "comments" link would always be blockt."

Will try that. Thanks

blue said...

"other 2 were rick/brent barry and matt/matt goukas"

ah, the barry's make cents....goukas would have gotten a blank stare

El Padrino said...

"and Colby has stopped trying to immitate the way MJ talks. He's gone street."

but he was jumping up in the air like him

fucking fag

El Padrino said...

Goukas gets a ::blank check::

isiah thompson said...

....goukas would have gotten a blank stare

there haven't been a lot of Japs in the league

isiah thompson said...

Colby was over-the-top having his daughters around.

spaceman spiff said...

rome is replaying the buss son's victory speech, fucking gawd-awful, dude has steves

isiah thompson said...

Joey Buss was the highlight of the evening.

spaceman spiff said...

ewing would have jumped too, if he won a title and if he had knee joints

isiah thompson said...

you'd think he would have prepared a little something or at least practiced something more than "I FOUND MY BASEBALL!!!!"

Keith S said...

Maybe Kobe will fly over the Bermuda Triangle on the way home from Orlando

blue said...

Just wait for Adam Morrison's "i'm going to Disney land" just like big baby from last year.

spaceman spiff said...

dont know what would be worse, jerry going al davis or jerry dying and joey taking over

blue said...

or maybe adam morrison will bust a move like madsen a few years ago.

spaceman spiff said...

rogue from xmen's boobs

El Padrino said...

leave Patrick alone

tem said...

"i'd like to see tem's douche list

it's probably real long"

i'd print it out, but it doesn't even fit on the intrawebs

tem said...

dr. j opted to wait until next year.

he was rough with the sack today though.

El Padrino said...

jesus

tem said...

dr. busted out "it's science" like 10 times on me.

he was talking about how if i cut 300 calories a day out of my diet i'll lose 1lb of fat.

he did not like it when i said i doubted that. he said "it's science" so i said, so if I cut 300 calories out for the next 200 weeks i will weigh 0lbs?


i think that is why he was rough with the package.

tem said...

"tem must be at the penguins victory parade."

drs. RIF.

i'll never love a team more than i loved the ewing knicks, huge part of my childhood

El Padrino said...

nice tits on pacquin

spaceman spiff said...

yea true blood

blue said...

i've heard that show has a lot of nudity...i should watch

even if it is about vampires

tem said...

"he said 1 pound of fat. listening is fundamental"

i am 100% fat

tem said...

still it doesn't work.

that means i would lose 200lbs of fat in 200 weeks.

Steve said...

is True Blood any good? anybody here watch it?

El Padrino said...

what channel is that, showtime?

Keith S said...

piece

El Padrino said...

not a vampire fan but will watch id f it's good and female nudity is abundant

spaceman spiff said...

"i cant believe how far and how fast he came"

-Rome about Ariza

hope his producers dropped a TWSS on him

isiah thompson said...

True Blood is on HBO

El Padrino said...

Then I wont be watching it, i chose not to get HBO and instead get all the showtimes and eveything else but cinemax

tem said...

you chose poorly.

El Padrino said...

why is that, i get 10 more movie channels for $10 less a month and hbo repeats everything

tem said...

you don't get to see this true blood show.

so you chose poorly.

blue said...

and no entourage

blue said...

or bill maher's shitty show

El Padrino said...

entourage has jumped the shark

whatever that means

El Padrino said...

true blood on Hulu i think

"One of the loudest offenders is Maria Sharapova, who at 101 decibels is almost as loud as a lion’s 110 decibel roar.

In last month’s French open, Aravane Rezai complained to the umpire about the noise emitting from 16-year-old player Michelle Larcher de Brito."

it's the only reason i watch the 6 minutes of tennis that i do watch

El Padrino said...

Rapper Fat Joe made a surprise visit to elementary school students in Jersey City this week and discussed the importance of a good education, unless of course, they’re planning a career in baked goods or automobile repair: “You can take a man without an education and he can become a mechanic or a baker, and he can know everything about baking and do it for 22 years. But that’s as far as he’s ever going to go.” He adds, “The man who gets an education doesn’t have to know a thing about baking. He doesn’t have to know how to make a donut, but he becomes his boss. That’s the difference about having an education.”


awesome, love when rappers give advice on edumecation

Steve said...

Soldier selling book for 20k or so. Paid 7$ for it.

He's about to do his second tour in Iraq. Murphy will have none of this, dude's a goner.

isiah thompson said...

I hope Fat Joe mixed in some exercise advice also.

blue said...

what about being a rapper, do you need education to do that?

Tyler said...

Yes, to be a rapper you get your degree from The Streets or the School of Hard Knocks.

Tyler said...

Unless you're P Diddy, then you just ride coattails.

Tyler said...

I hope Plax signs with the Jets and he makes Dirty Sanchez a Pro Bowler.

El Padrino said...

goodell gonna let him play?

Tyler said...

He'll suspend him four games.

Tyler said...

Otherwise, I'm sure the players union will take the NFL to court. Can't deny a brother a chance to work.

El Padrino said...

yeah without a conviction rog cant do jack shit

El Padrino said...

cheddar plax is a hell of a wr

damn shame

El Padrino said...

overboard

isiah thompson said...

4 games max for Plax

Tyler said...

Yeah, he's gonna get a lot of looks before training camp starts. I think he signs with the Jets to stick it to the Giants.

isiah thompson said...

we saw how bad Elisha sucked without Plax.

Tyler said...

Yeah, they need to make a move and soon. Their #1 is Hixon, and he's ok, but he's not a #1. The rest of their WR core is garbage.

El Padrino said...

"Jets to stick it to the Giants."

not sure how that sticks it to the giants

"we saw how bad Elisha sucked without Plax."

was it eli or the wr's, full off-season should do the trick, he'll be fine

isiah thompson said...

and you know Jacobs will pull those labia early in the season and they got rid of Ward.

no run game or passing game

they better hope that D steps up.

isiah thompson said...

Phil Mchonkey* ain't walking through that door.

El Padrino said...

"Yeah, they need to make a move and soon. Their #1 is Hixon, and he's ok, but he's not a #1. The rest of their WR core is garbage."

they just need a red zone target, they can matriculate the ball down the field with what they have

Tyler said...

And I'm not knocking them for cutting Plax, they had to cut him, he was a distraction and they would have had to wait to see what happened with his trail and/or suspension, but I thought trading for a #1 WR was their top priority. Do it already.

El Padrino said...

"and you know Jacobs will pull those labia early in the season and they got rid of Ward.

no run game or passing game
