NY Fans Remain the Absolute Classiest


With the All Star game in Yankee Stadium, and everyone in the media falling over themselves to wax poetic about the stadium and the Yankees, the fans in the stadium are doing their part to show why they’re douchebags.

Last night when Chase Utley was introduced he was lustily booed, now granted it was likely Mets fans that were booing him, but fuck it, they’re all from New York, and it was still stupid. Here’s Chase’s reaction to getting booed. Don’t worry ChUtley, you’re still totally boss in my book, now keep cranking those homers for my fantasy team.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Last night’s Home Run Derby was some kind of cruel endurance test as ESPN put Joe Morgan and Chris Berman together as the announcers. I’m pretty sure that can be considered torture under the American Code of Military Justice. I hope they had the TVs tuned in over at Guantanamo. All I know is that after the pure analysis Joe provided, plus my ears ringing from “BACK BACK BACK, it falls just beyond the infield,” that I came super close to stabbing a screwdriver into my ear canals.

And then to make it even worse, for some reason Rick Reilly was on-air as well. I get that ESPN is paying him a ridiculous amount of money for his 800 word columns, but he should never be on live television. I don’t think he said a single thing that was not inappropriate. From his bemoaning that the derby was 8 white guys, making it out like that was MLB’s fault, not that players like Manny Ramirez, A-Rod, Tejada, etc had zero interest in participating. Or when Uggla hit a homer and Reilly said “Who needs steroids?”

Sigh, sure, Reilly can write, but ESPN should leave him inside somewheres with a laptop, he definitely shouldn’t be on-camera.
