That's quite the headline.
 
2005-01-06 02:45:37 PM
I wonder how much Tyler Chicken he got for the trade.
 
2005-01-06 02:45:54 PM
Yeah, submitter

Whaaaa? I get the gaping hole in the rotation bit, I do not get the thai hooker reference.
 
2005-01-06 02:45:56 PM
Well, he doesn't NEED her anymore, but DOES like her.
 
2005-01-06 02:46:00 PM
the headline just doesn't quite make it. close, but not quite. just something about it...
 
2005-01-06 02:46:01 PM
well, that's somewhat inflammatory. i wonder if a lawsuit is imminent.

That's quite the headline.

Talk about an active imagination.
 
2005-01-06 02:46:59 PM
Lamest headline. Evar!
 
2005-01-06 02:47:20 PM
No, but Georgie still has either a roided-up has been at first, the baseball talent of a Sabrett hot dog stand owner at second, a shortstop who is not what he used to be, a true black cloud to a baseball team at third, a decent left-fielder, a past-his-prime center fielder and nobody in right field.

Yeah, good thing he got Randy Johnson.

Yet another building block in King George's quest to ruin baseball.

Gosh, I sure hope that the Big Unit doesn't "flood the zone" of the Thai hooker.

Gotta love that the guy has the perfect porn names as his nickname AND his real name!

"Thai hooker with a strap-on"

That makes me farking hot!

Can we get pics of the above mentioned Thai hooker?

WTF??? = headline < satisfactory + real annoying.

My Gawd, I never thought of that.

Good thing we got the Big Unit, coz our Thai hooker with a strap on was actually sucked out to sea by the Tsunami.

If there's a bad Thai hooker with a strap-on joke, I haven't heard it.
 
2005-01-06 02:56:20 PM
I figured out why Major League Baseball isn't ever going to level the playing field. It's for a similar reason that kept Howard Stern on the air in the early days.

They said that in his early days as a shock jock, people who hated Stern tuned in just to see what he would say next.

With the Yankees I think people will be interested in baseball just to see how badly $200 million worth of prima donnas in pinstripes will fall flat on their faces.

I'm beginning to think you're not the real Randy Johnson...

Once a man who could not get much richer
Paid an ungodly sum for a pitcher.
For a thousandth the cash
He could get some fast gash
From a cute little starlet, then ditch her.
 
2005-01-06 03:03:47 PM
I'm thinkin a Thai hooker would come standard with a whole array of STDs.
 
2005-01-06 03:04:48 PM
Let's look at the record:

GEORGE STEINBRENNER: Pays $32 million, or an average of $43,836 per day, for a man, and doesn't get any sex off of him;

BRITNEY SPEARS: pays $550 thousand, or an average of $275,000 per day, for a man, and gets all the sex she wants off him.

Who says blondes are dumb?
 
2005-01-06 03:05:46 PM
That Thai hooker was last seen in the Inian ocean floating on the strapon.
 
2005-01-06 03:07:25 PM
i've never seen a team like this ever. regardless of whether they win the world series or not (good chance though) imagine a healthy johnson (beavis laugh) with a run producing all-star team behind him.

/gawd damn

The difference is that you want to put the condom on Steinbrenner's head because of the circumcision scar on his forehead.

I once met George Steinbrenner at a US Army Football game at West Point, NY in 1992. My then ten year old buddies and me jumped the stadium wall to sneak up to his posse and get his autograph. At the time I didn't really know his significance, but I distinctly remember a group of New Yorkers in the stadium booing him and yelling things at him while he was trying to enjoy the game. I lost that autograph...

Great farkin' headline.
 
2005-01-06 03:19:44 PM
Oh please, the 'headline about Randy Johnson containing lots of euphemisms for 'penis'' was done last time he was about to be traded

/that is all

So does RJ offer Bernie some money for #51 - both have had it their entire career. I'm curious what number he's going to take though, I'm thinking 61.

ESPN.com has said that Johnson will pick a new number.

Good riddance.

Yet another former Seattle Mariners team member traded to the Yankees. This time, unlike Rodriguez, its one who will drag the Yankees down to the PCB infested depths of the Hudson River.

Randy Johnson has to be one of the most wishy-washy pitchers Ive ever seen. The man can pitch like a god one night and pitch like a drunken midget the next. Ive seen more games in the playoffs ruined because of that man than any other force in the ballpark.

When he was traded to the Diamondbacks, everyone wondered what was up with the Mariners management. Even today, I see fans of the Diamondbacks asking the same question.

Bah, the Yankees suck. The Diamondbacks will be better off without him. The Yankees will still stuck.
 
2005-01-06 03:45:46 PM
BTW, The NY Times ran an article today on the Yankees finances. It turns out that they have lost money (or made very little) in each of the last 5-6 years. So while it may be true than steinbrenner will win in the long run by increasing the franchise's value, he has shown a willingness to take short term losses in exchange for playoff appearances and hopefully some championships.

It's a very solid team on paper and one that will sell 3 million tickets before the first pitch is thrown, but there is definitely some major injury risk at almost every position.

Randy Johnson was traded to the Houston Astros.

It doesn't look like the submitter quite got the running headline joke with this one....
 
2005-01-06 03:56:32 PM
I'm a diehard Cubs fan, but come on. The Yankees can't suck if they keep making it to the playoffs. They don't always win, but show me a team that does.

Fighting words there, buddy :-)

Dear God, please, please, please let us keep Beltran. We are hopeless without him.

Randy Johnson reminds me of an ugly little dog that you see and say "oh, it's so ugly it's cute". But cute in a pet sort of way, not in a guy way. Mike Hampton is that kind of cute.

/knows more about MLB than just which players are cute.

Headline would have been good if you'd stopped after the first sentence, but then you kept on going. If you start with double-entendres, keep them vague!
