Here's a PDF list of all the alumni who were at Fenway for the celebration. Johnny Damon, Trot Nixon and El Guapo are noticeably absent.


IZZY ALCANTARA!? Man, takes balls to show up after the way he fell out of the game.

nbrfwhoooo: I do have a more than likely stupid question to ask. How did the old plane keep pace with the F-16? I am going to assume the F-16 slowed way the hell down. I have no clue at all about planes other than the basics. The plane was a prop plane and the other had Evil Knievel sticking out the ass. I just don't know, so go gentle.

I also have no idea but shortly after the planes went over head I head a loud noise outside the bar I was in. I went out to discover a dump truck rolling by. I hope that helps.

Somehow Michael Kay pulled it off! Everyone said he couldn't possibly say anything dumber than the "television in 1912" comment, but with "the Yankees suffered a blow losing Farnsworth," he did it!

robsul82: All right, 9 outs to go, Highlanders.

There can be only one.

In honor of Fenway's great history, today's managing duties will be performed by Grady Little.

/Clay might need to leave before the game gets wildly out of hand.

The Bestest: Zombie Hitler: Jesus Christ Michael Kay.

What'd I miss? I've got Smoltz and Vazcurison on MLBN

They came from break in High Definition Black and White and he was like "This is how this game would have looked on TV back in 1912!"

Singleton was like ""

This is how I used to post on fark in 1912, Michael Kay. Although back then my username was Mummy Napoleon.

Gunny Highway: Zombie Hitler: Rex_Banner: Wise_Guy: Rex_Banner: Zombie Hitler: 100 anniversary of their park, and they talk about Karim Garcia.

Wait, really? Tell me it was about game 3 of the '03 ALCS.........

What else could it possibly have been?

I dunno... I just figured that there could have been something else that I've forgotten about.

/I can't wait to watch that later

It was worse than you imagine.

That is the great part. At some point someone handed those two mics and said, "get up there" with no plan.

You cant light a match near Millar, and they let him on the field with a microphone.

When Pedro is the coherent one, you're in deep shiat.

The Bestest: Will Williams conduct a live version of the Imperial March when the Yankees take the field?

Now I'm just gonna be disappointed when that doesn't happen, good job.

FiendishFellow05: And the refurbished wooden ones have new paint, new self-rising mechanisms(no more smacking your legs on open seats!), and replaced wood where necessary. And again, they represent a minority of the seats at Fenway Park.

At least one minority is represented at Fenway.

/here all week etc...

Gunny Highway: Annnnnd I was supposed to get out of work at 1:00 today so I could watch the game but someone called out sick. 6:30 to 8:00 it is. Thank goodness for the internet.

Well I hope your "sick" coworker enjoys the day at Fenway.

LeatherPenguin: The Bestest: Well hopefully the Yankees already got all the awful pitching out of their system in the Twins series.

They took Hughes and Garcia into the parking lot and had them shot?

Better: they were put on the hood of Mitt Romney's car.

And I can tell some of you didn't grow up in a rural setting. You pee around an area to keep unwanted animals/pests away, such as foxes, rabbits and Yankees fans. We're just trying to protect this house!

Misconduc: /At least Boston doesn't have to give away 10,000 playoff tickets and only get 2,000 seats filled - Sorry Rays you lose.

Beats getting ready to sell 40,000 playoff tickets and then FAILING TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS.

I had good seats. Not great, but good. My only complaint was that the seats weren't designed for tall people.

They're designed for the Irish, which means they aren't even designed for average height people
