"The Nationals, in case you haven't noticed, are in first place in the NL East."

I'd say you're making a Major League reference of your own, Buck, but you're not that cool.

I feel your pain. Not tonight, but I can relate.

I am so going back to cable. *sigh*


Yeah, DirecTV has a lot of cool stuff, but reliability and blacked out local sports are killing me.

You know, I despise Tim McCarver since he never shuts up about how great baseball used to be and he continually tries to talk about how awesome Bob Gibson was...but I just can't hate Joe Buck. Sure, everybody finds him annoying and he is such a walking cliche that it has to hurt...

But, my former boss tells a story of seeing Joe Buck outside a hotel bar after a world series game. A bunch of the clubbies were sitting around and Joe Buck walks by, my former boss yells out "hey, Buck, you suck".

Joe Buck, without breaking stride, turns his head and yells "Hey, f*ck you" and keeps on walking out the hotel.

I have to respect the man for that.

Or we appreciate the humor in this entire situation and are enjoying it. From the get go I've appreciated the fact that Royals fans were so bent out of shape over something so pointless. They're well within their rights to boo Cano, just as I'm well within mine to laugh at their reason for doing it.

Apply directly to forehead in the event of a Joe Buck article:

Joe Buck Pissed In My Shoes
a short narrative by (Farker) NakedReporta


Back when I was 11 and living in St. Louis, my parents decided I was too smart to be wasting my time in public schools and started seeking out private schools. The choice was eventually narrowed to two: John Burroughs and Country Day. I took the admittance test for each, but a kid I really hated from the public school I had attended was also trying to get into Burroughs, so I tanked that test.

Come fall, I was a seventh-grader at St. Louis Country Day School (known as CODASCO for short), whose famous alums include Vincent Price and John Danforth. And so began a year of sheer living hell. Most of the kids at CODASCO came from monied families, while I was this socially inept middle-class kid who wore the same Sears-bought suit every day. I was an immediate target.

One of my classmates was Joe Buck, the son of legendary Cardinals announcer Jack Buck. Joe was kind of a big, fat kid, but he had all the airs of social entitlement. Typical of the kind of stupid crap Buck would pull on me was to ask me if I "knew" my mother or to mock my attire. On more than one occasion, he was one of the ringleaders as five or six kids would decide to simultaneously throttle me.

But the final indignity came on a spring afternoon when we had gym class. We all changed into our standard-issue t-shirts and shorts and trotted out to the baseball field. All, that is, except Joe Buck, who bolted out of the locker room about a minute behind the rest. And when gym period was over, and we returned to the locker room, there were my Docksides-knockoff loafers, filled with the acrid stench of urine. Buck denied it, and the gym teacher didn't really give a shiat.

I had to wear my gym sneakers the rest of the day, then tearfully explain to my parents about what had happened. They decided to press the issue, and it culminated in Joe and his mom and my mother and I all meeting with the headmaster. Joe denied it, I couldn't prove it, and the headmaster made us shake hands. I knew the remaining months were only going to be worse. The group beatings and mockery intensified. I barely passed my way through the seventh grade, and the next year I was back in public school. The torment continued -- hey, I was a real dork -- but at least it was free.

Look, kids can do cruel things. Joe was looking to be one of the guys, and I was an easy mark. He couldn't have any idea that my home life was simultaneously crumbling, and that what could have been a respite (time in school, away from home) was instead just compounding my nightmare. I suppose I should forgive the guy. But I can't.

I've managed to slog through a pretty respectable career as a writer. Joe, with his family ties and -- even I have to admit -- considerable talent, is the voice of FOX Sports. And every time I watch a marquee sporting event on FOX, I can't help but pause and reflect that, all those many years ago, that prick pissed in my shoes.

His twitter bio is "No I don't hate your team. Get over it. I am happy to provide you hours of free entertainment or to be there as your piñata for all your frustrations. Enjoy!"

We're just brain damaged, while the guy who wants baseball's reality to mirror Ken Burns' nostalgic take on the game's glorious history is perfectly fine.

Oh, God, Phil Shifley.

FOX should just say no to such promotions. Including themselves, crowbarring stars of their shows into the stands.
 
2012-07-10 09:18:35 PM
Every year during the all-star game, I am reminded of how the Atlanta Braves have propelled the Texas Rangers to league superiority.

Oh, the "hometown hero is woven into the grand tapestry of America's pastime" thing? I think I really had a perfect response to that with the old man slumbering at a game.
