Well, I posted this in the link dump, but here it is again. I love Remy's commentary. "This guy right here is supposed to take us to the promised land..."

I should be doing the Campfire thing tonight, assuming the local radio affiliate is carrying the game... crap! Football? Damn! Guess it's downstairs with the TV for me.

I might hop in, but it'll be 90% crowing about the Patriots. Or 20% eating that crow. Which is 10% more protein in my diet.

That video is appropriate for every occassion, JG. You should post it in the lawyer thread so we call out the character of Irish Jig Instructors. I don't have a link for you SDD, but there's one I wish I had. My dad, brother, girlfriend and I went down to Baltimore for the Yankees' final game Sunday. When we got back to the car, we turned on WFAN just in time to hear the greatest rant in sports radio history. During some show hosted by Chris Russo (a Giants fan, otherwise known as the Mad Dog) and some pro-Mets guy, a Mets fan called in to discuss his feelings on where the Mets go from here. This guy started listing everything that "needs to be blown up" within the organization and he didn't miss anything in a full-on, single-breath raging scream-- Wilpon, Minaya, Randolph, Jose Reyes, Carlos Delgado, Paul LaDuca, the bullpen, the vendors, Keith Hernandez, Abner Doubleday, Jeffrey Meier, screwcap wines, jughandle turns, and the infield-fly rule. I may have missed some from laughter. When the guy finished (and presumably passed out), there was a beat, then Russo says, "You know what's next for you? Yankees/Indians, Thursday at eight." That might be the single cruelest response by a radio host I have ever heard. I know that's not what you're looking for, but it's a story.

Yes, Crafty that is exactly the kind of stuff I'm looking for get me a link please. In my haste I forgot about the Met's . I guess I'm still miffed about 1969 and all.......... :> In the meantime please enjoy the soon to be infamous Lou Pinella "Umbrella Song" I love all the jabs in this song! "Barret had it coming" sweet...........

I love when he kicks off his flipflops and the face the camera catches right after. I don't know why that particular part kills me. I don't know why, but he sort of reminds me of Vera De Milo, the Jim Carrey character on In Living Color.
