Poolman: Just Say No To Bush, Texas

Poolman: I really like the players on Texas — Vlad — Elvis, Josh (classic reborn Jesus freak teetering on the edge of a relapse) the coach who looks like he just stumbled out of the Gospel Mission. But, I just can’t get past the Bush element. You know when the series goes back to Texas we are going to get close ups of W between every other pitch. I would much rather watch a disappointed W than a smirky W. I’ll stick the West Coast dogs and the kid with the bangin’ hair.

Question: Poolman basis his support for the Giants on his dislike for Texas Ranger fan George W. Bush. How do you determine who you root for in this World Series?

P.S. World Series Begins

APhoto Of The Day — 8.24.10

Top Cutlines:

  • 1. There’s no crying in baseball. Even if you’re a dork and totally blow catching a foul ball in front of your girlfriend. Even if you get a huge black eye and lose your vision in that eye and your girlfriend leaves you for a guy who can catch. Even then, there’s no crying in baseball — CindyH.
  • 2. Why do you look at the marble in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the baseball in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the marble out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a baseball in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the baseball out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the marble from your brother’s eye — Nic.
  • 3. In an unexpected place, the Mariners find their new left fielder — JohnA.

Question: Are you still optimistic that the punchless Mariners will turn things around and begin hitting? And/Or: Is it time that Ken Griffey Jr. retires? And/Or: How many games do you watch a year at Safeco Field?
