$10 bucks...ahh not good.
2004-10-19 11:55:04 AM  
Yankee fans say:
"I got yer 28-inch good luck charm rye cheer."
2004-10-19 12:09:15 PM  
I want this series to end more than I want the Presidential campaign to be over with.

I just want either the Yankees fans or Red Sox fans to talk their day of shiat and be done with it... these games are killing my nerves.

/Gordon sucks.

bout time leprechauns started work on breaking the color barier...
2004-10-19 01:20:48 PM  
This story is really weird! Like how every sentence ends with an exclamation point!
2004-10-19 03:29:02 PM  
Is that guy the Sox's shortstop?

God, I hate myself.
2004-10-19 06:07:14 PM  
You should see the little f'er dance....
Mahow Mahow!
(Link to 9+ meg wmv file of Nelson doing a "suggestive dance" on Telemundo.) It is Absolutely hysterical. It gets better as it gets closer to the end.

Life's been good for this little dude ever since he escaped from Neverland.

"Red Sox's 28-inch "good luck charm" charges fans $10 for a photo."

What the hell is my penis doing in Boston? And where is my money?
2004-10-19 07:16:19 PM  
I'd charge twenty, even though I've got 20 inches less to photograph.

Did I just say that?
2004-10-19 07:19:19 PM  
SuburbanCowboy: That is too funny. Thanks.
2004-10-19 07:23:18 PM  
If I was the FOX network, I'd dress him in a little Red Sox uniform, and get Verne Troyer to dress up in a little Yankee uniform, stick them in a steel cage and then weld it shut, give them chainsaws, nunchaku, ninja stars, and acid-shooting spray guns, and let them battle it out. Plus a special $1M bonus if someone can sever the other guy's head.

I'd put it on PPV and make meeelions! MMMEEEEELLIOOOONNNNNSSSS I say!
2004-10-19 08:11:56 PM  
ohh wow.. i know him.. i used to see him a couple of years ago in the main bulevard in Dominican Republic also taking pics with people..
he didnt charge back then!!
2004-10-19 08:19:39 PM  
Its actually 30". I measured.
2004-10-19 08:20:45 PM  
Yes, but does he have four asses?
2004-10-19 08:27:08 PM  
Poor little sod. That isn't a viable size. Good luck to him.
2004-10-19 08:28:07 PM  
That pictaahh is wicked pissahh!

/bostonics is bad for the country. Speak english.
2004-10-19 08:31:14 PM  
Thanks for the vid, SuburbanCowboy.

Damn that guy is TINY! And I thought I had it rough...
2004-10-19 08:40:32 PM  
Can anyone translate the Spanish from Suburban Cowboy's post?

Also, why is a mortar and pestle in the background?
2004-10-19 08:41:33 PM  
Why is that paragraph underlined? Who is "Someone Who Knows"? Why do we care he's a sales exec? What the hell is going on? Why is this article messing with my mind?
2004-10-19 08:45:41 PM  
Oh, and insert penis joke here.

Hehe, I said "insert penis".
2004-10-19 08:52:40 PM  
Bellhorn is front running candidate for LVP. ie: least valuable player

10 outta his 20 outs have been via the K and he just got doubled off with bases chucked and 1 out.

Whadda choke artist.

2004-10-19 09:02:16 PM  
Haven't other "diminutive" celebs (Gary Coleman, Emmanuel Lewis, maybe even Verne?) expressed frustration at being picked up like little kids?
Oh, wait, this guy's a PR wet dream & enjoying the flash of fame...
/chunk of nothing
2004-10-19 09:03:22 PM  
Huh, I wonder if baseball fans are tanked out after the last 2 games?
2004-10-19 09:07:10 PM  
Is the game on LIVE audio or video on the net anywhere????
I'm been looking, but only get the one where you have to pay.
Help here would be nice.

He's the lil guy from the Island of Dr. Moreau. If only Joe C was alive.

If you knew anything about the English language, you'd know that the Boston accent is the first accent in America and it comes from the British, originally.

/take your flat midwestern accent and...
2004-10-19 09:24:26 PM  
Fantine I'm not questioning your grasp of colonial chronology; I'm assuming you're aware of some lingual lineage I don't know about. Or you think folks in Williamsburg speak with British accents... ;)
2004-10-19 09:26:52 PM  
midgets weird me out. i mean they are adults, but because of thier size, get treated like a cute lil kid. they actually like it too. this guy wouldn't have lasted a second in Nazi Germany.
2004-10-19 09:31:10 PM  
Yes, yes, fellow farkers, I know there were also (countless?) native languages and sublanguages predating the accents of circa-1600 settlers in this chunk of North America now known as the United States.

And my apologies for the pissy butt-covering. I went to court today.
2004-10-19 09:33:42 PM  
They are so cursed.
2004-10-19 09:35:36 PM  

No offense, but can't you afford $2.95 for one night?

Much as I swore I'd never send money in the direction of again (after they re-upped my audio subscription from one year to the next with absolutely no notice), I decided I'd like to see the game and 30 seconds later I was watching it.  Not too shabby, I've got to say.

Incidentally, 3... er, 4-0 Boston. Woo.

tonguedepressor: Bellhorn is front running candidate for LVP. ie: least valuable player

He must have just rubbed the midget (pardon the expression).
2004-10-19 09:40:20 PM  
I'll eat my words and enjoy the taste if the SOX WIN!!
2004-10-19 09:40:37 PM  
Speaking of which:

Sox: 4
Yanks: 0

Bottom of the 4th.

Varitek single RBI, followed by Crabrera single. Bellhorn 3 run HR.
2004-10-19 09:40:57 PM  
Ouch, petunia you really put my in my place. I'm just going on what my linguistics teacher taught me about the sharp vowel sounds pertaining to the british accent as well as the bostonian accent. but hey, everyone has bad days.
2004-10-19 09:43:41 PM  

Might I suggest you start with "Bellhorn is front running". After that refreshes your pallet, I suggest "candidate for LVP. ie: least valuable player" sautee a la malaise, with a good white whine to wash it down.
2004-10-19 09:58:46 PM  
Fantine Nah, the British-Boston accent comparison sounds intriguing.
I learned more about the history and evolution of the English language in one grammar course in college than I had picked up through high school. I wish my university had offered more courses like it. (Alas, I've forgotten huge chunks of it, though.)
2004-10-19 10:04:51 PM  

I hear that. I'm considering selling nitro pills in front of my apartment complex.
2004-10-19 10:18:00 PM  
Also, two other things:

1- I've been taking a poll:

Which would you rather have?
a- Your candidate of choice wins the election
b- Sox win the world series

It's about neck and neck right now after a dozen or so people.

2- Tim McCarver needs to be beaten without mercy.
2004-10-19 10:31:45 PM  

I know enough to say the boston venacular is not spectacular.

/that rhymes, even in bostonics. . .
2004-10-19 10:36:02 PM  
Its not the money Oswald. Its the principle.

i think someone left Kobe in the dryer too long.
2004-10-19 10:40:40 PM  
I'll give you my 28 inch good lu.....oh forget it, it's just too easy.
2004-10-19 10:41:37 PM  
lol spooter I just spit beer on my screen
the resemblance is uncanny
2004-10-19 10:51:21 PM
