was he watching you weave then breath your story lines.

Yes, I agree.

There is nothing more useless than a minor league baseball player who's biggest claim to fame is being an attention-whoring idiot. I can't for the life of me figure out why I even clicked on that.

During the day, ESPN2 needs to show minor league baseball instead of stupid junk like armwrestling or those World's Strongest Man things. Well, wait, the last one is kind of cool. But still, the people want to see the mighty fall, even if it's not live!

Rocker stinkin' it up? Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

John Rocker is a douchebag. Say "Aye!" if you agree with me.
 
2005-04-29 01:04:46 PM
Never surrender, Corey. Never surrender.
 
2005-04-29 01:05:37 PM
John Rocker is a dick. That is all.

My name is john rocker and I watch the iron eagle movies, and I sign my name with an X

I eat rat poision cuz I can't read whats on the box!

2005-04-29 01:07:34 PM
Aye. That too.
 
2005-04-29 01:07:35 PM
I always wondered what happened to Corey. He went into baseball, did he?
 
2005-04-29 01:07:57 PM
I thought he was all right in Blues Traveller. I didn't know he played baseball. Is it true that he got a gastric bypass?
 
2005-04-29 01:08:42 PM
Yes, he is a dick, but if he can find the strike zone, he'll be back in baseball. Left-handed dicks who throw 98 don't fall off trees. Good god, what the hell am I typing?

From Creative Loafing (Atlanta weekly) Febuary 10th. This stuff cracks me up.

Last weekend, a fight erupted at Fontaine's in Virginia-Highland. Someone pushed someone else, a racial slur was uttered, a scuffle ensued, and the guys involved were thrown out. It wasn't until after the fact, however, that everyone in the bar learned the guy who'd started it all was none other than former Atlanta Brave John Rocker. Rocker embarrassed Georgia nationally after revealing during a Sports Illustrated interview that he didn't want to sit on a train "next to some queer with AIDS" and therefore would never play for a New York ball club. During the same interview he said, "I'm not a very big fan of foreigners. How the hell did they get in this country?"

It's nice to know Rocker's behavior has remained consistent - even if his pitching has not.

Was it battery night?

Dr.Knockboots: i hope he can make a full recovery and come back in good form.

I'll take a "fully recovered" Rocker over Tom Gordon ANY day.

Wow I really want to bang the Dusty T-shirt girl...

Oh, this thread was about baseball? Um, go 'stros.

Fark sure is boring today. And I really depend on a good farking on Fridays.

Corey Hart played in Indianapolis last year. I don't think he has much of a sense of humor. His theme song when he's coming up to bat is not Sunglasses at Night and we yelled for him to never surrender repeatedly (We figured he never heard that one before) and he never so much as cracked a smile.
 
2005-04-29 01:12:52 PM

Yep...now he's really thin...although he STILL can't get it over the plate...great harp player back in the day...
 
2005-04-29 01:14:36 PM
I loved him as "Hoss Cartwright" on Bonanza!
 
2005-04-29 01:14:44 PM
1) Aye!
2) "Watch you weave then breath your story lines." - so THAT's what he's saying.

/learn something new and irrelevant every day.
 
2005-04-29 01:15:13 PM
Aye!



He will never surrender as long as he can wear his sunglasses at night.


/has the song stuck in his head now
 
2005-04-29 01:15:39 PM
Wasn't he the spastic singer that covered "With a Little Help From Friends" that John Belushi used to imitate?
 
2005-04-29 01:16:50 PM
Thanks, submitter. I hate that song. I know it too well :(
 
2005-04-29 01:18:18 PM
How dare anyone root for someone who's politically incorrect!

Not to rain on the headline's parade, but Corey Hart (the one whose profile they link to, anyway) plays for the Nashville Sounds, not Bridgeport.

I had heard that Corey Hart was opening for Def Leppard this summer on a tour which played minor league baseball parks. Now I know why.

Q: What has 9 arms and sucks?


A: Def Leppard
 
2005-04-29 01:22:39 PM
If I had a choice, I would also chose not to sit next to a queer with AIDS on the subway. I too wonder how so many foreigners get into this country and no, I don't like some of the culture they bring with them.

/just sayin'

Q: What has 5 arms and likes to eat pu**y?

I got to see him close quite a few Braves games. Amazing arm on that guy.

Still a dipshiat for saying what he did.
 
2005-04-29 01:26:45 PM
Wow I really want to bang the Dusty T-shirt girl...

I mentioned this in the Personals Forum the other day, but that new girl looks so angry. Methinks the elastic in her panties is shot, or some such thing.

Anyway, Rocker is a tool, and I hope he doesn't come back to the Braves.

I always thought he was the mascot

Actually Corey married quebec hottness Julie Masse and is now a decent producer living in the carribean I believe.

/FYI

Not sure I see the problem with these comments but they sure seemed to piss off a lot of uptight liberals. What really got him in hot water were the things that were supposed to stay in the clubhouse. Bobby Cox will never throw one of his players under the bus and he won't let any other team member do it either.

Not to split hairs, but I'm pretty sure one of those guys had a little bit of a career after Nirvana. Yeah, he started, like, a new band or something. Wha-who were they- OH YEAH! IT WAS DAVE GROHL and he started THE FOO FIGHTERS!



Idiot.

/go get me a quarter pounder with cheese

And, Dave Grohl, wasn't he the drummer of Queens of the Stone Age?

/and Tenacious D, for that matter.
 
2005-04-29 01:40:42 PM
let bygones be bygones hes apologized for his comments and he paid dearly for them. hes learned his lesson, but i doubt we will see him in the majors again, hes always had control/confidence issues when the stakes get high.

/damn this spiderbite on my leg itches like the dickens!
 
2005-04-29 01:44:20 PM
jimiih: one of those guys had a little bit of a career after Nirvana.

i don't like all TFF's songs, but every single video of theirs that i've ever seen has made me LMAO.
BTW plexiglass guitars suck - no tone. look kinda cool though
 
2005-04-29 01:49:08 PM
This is awesome! I might get to see John Rocker play against my home team in the Atlantic league, the Lancaster Barnstormers!!!!!
