Seven!

The official sponsor of the ASV coverage of tonight's game: tum04.gif Am I ready to eat crow yet? Not on your life. There's still more baseball to be played. A note to some of you - and you know who you are: Lighten up, Francis. It's a game. It's a rivalry. It's fun. Take a deep breath and stop taking everything so seriously. And to one emailer in particular: violent threats over baseball are just not cool, buddy. Chill. Update: Don't forget about the bet! Someone will be coughing up 70$ for charity tonight.

A part of me has taken the position that I should not watch tonight. I should get some sleep for the first time this week and not live and die with every freakin pitch. I think that part of me may be right.

Of course, that part of me will be chained and beaten by the rest just before first pitch.

It's just another cruel Yankee ploy to wring as much out of the BoSox fans as humanly possible.

Game probably won't be decided toll the 13th inning, with a two outs, full count hit that will be bobbled by the as yet undetermined Boston goat, allowing the winning Yankee run to cross the plate.

Now THAT was a very whiney post...

Man, I am so annoyed. Well, at least some charity is getting $70 out of this.

No one should be threatening anyone. So in that sense, yes, of course, it's only a game. Fun? That's a different story.

Long ago I lost my sense of humor about the Yankees. Not fun.

Fortunately, the BoSox have already redeemed themselves. This series was over for them. They're hanging in there and perhaps have a shot tonight.

More important, they've forced the Yankees to pitch a lot of innings, so perhaps the NL team can clean up a tired Yankee team like last year. I was afraid the Yankees would get to rest their pitchers for four days prior to the Series. Every time that's happened, the Yankees have cleaned up.

Yankee Stadium Ghost Alert!
Today is Mickey Mantle's birthday.

Jets v. Sharks
It's on for tonight.
No guns.

I'm disappointed in A-Rod's behavior. I'd be embarrassed of him if I was a Yankees fan. And the cops in riot gear on the feild? That was just...strange. But the only really odd thing that happened last night was Bellhorn's 4 run homer. Until now, that guy couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

I'm assuming that tonight will be stranger yet. Looks like I'll be losing sleep again...

I'd be freaking out if the umps left the A-Rod call the way it was. But as much as I'm a Sox fan, what Rodriguez did was just baseball. If I were a Yankee fan, I'd be more disappointed that he didn't barrel into Arroyo full bore instead of giving it a little girly slap. He has a right to run to first base. "Outta my way, beyotch!"

shank: those guys are always there. Usually, they're out behind Section 39, waiting to beat down the Bleacher Creatures if they decide it's time to kill something.

When they left the field I'd bet cash money they were redeployed to the player's gate to make sure the umpires escaped with their lives.

i agree with ya sol. A-Rod could've saved a lot of trouble if he just tried to steamroll someone. I guess Varitek instilled in him the fear of the glove, so A-Rod opted to slap the glove before it slapped him.

Violence over a ball game not cool? Someone should have told THIS GUY.

The worst part about coughing up seventy bucks is that you have to swallow it all first. So do what they do in prison...

Unfortunately for ARod, Arroyo didn't block his progress to first base, so in order to run him over he would of had to leave the baseline - and they would have called him out for that.

I don't mind that he tried to slap maneuver. But when he got busted he should have left the field like a man instead of crying and whining to the ump like he really believed he did nothing wrong. That was embarrassing. You didn't see Matsui putting on an act when they got the Bellhorn call right. He at least has some dignity.

OK. This is gettin' creepy.

My prediction:

Bosox beat the Yankees...dramatically. Like with a grand slam in the 9th. Then they lose to Clemens in game 7 via no hitter. I'm betting some Sawks fans will try and learn to fly then. It'll be like Christmas.:)

Mwahahaha. Mwahahaha. Mwahahahaaha!!!!

Lighten up, Francis.

Ha! For some reason, I feel like your only reader who will recognize that line.

"Ha! For some reason, I feel like your only reader who will recognize that line."

Not at all! It's from "Stripes". Sgt Hulka speaking to "Psycho":

Psycho: "My name is Francis [I forget his last name-*shame*]. Any of you call me Francis...I'll kill ya! ...... Any of you homos touch me or any of my stuff, I'll kill ya...."

Hulka: "Lighten up, Francis!"

Order might be off, but ...

Can we all agree that "Stripes" should've ended with them graduating Basic Training? The first 2/3 of the movie was hilarious; the part in Europe was groan-inducingly painful and best forgotten.
