A 9/11 thread in the "sports" tab? Fine. Oblig:

FTA: And many of them [Yankees] did not partake in all that, so there was some of that jealousy going around [among Mets players]. Like, 'Why are we so tired? Why are we wasted? Why have we been to the funerals and the firehouses, and the Yankees are getting all the credit for bringing baseball back?'

Maybe because the Yankees were still relevant in September, Bobby. One doesn't "bring baseball back" by barely cracking .500.

Go back to Japan, Bobby.

I do remember the Mets seeming more (visibly) involved with relief efforts.  And they were involved, at least a little, in a race with the Braves, so it's not like they weren't paying attention to baseball.

That being said, Valentine's probably just trying to cause trouble.
 
2013-09-11 06:27:23 PM  
But the Yankees interrupt every game for "God Bless America" and they even played "Sweet Caroline" after the Boston bombing, so it's even.
 
2013-09-11 06:29:21 PM  
I still remember Mike Piazza's home run on the 21st. That was about the peak of it for me.

I swear 9/11 made everyone retarded.  This country isn't going to get its shiat together until everyone who was alive on Sept. 11, 2011 is decaying in the ground.

What a spectacular douche.

People are crazy. Google puts a subdued black ribbon on their search page, and people are offended. ATT does a 9/11 phot using a pic, and people are outraged. Bobby Valentine makes a 9/11 remark and people can't handle it. People really need to stop making a big fuss about all this minor shiat people do.

With that being said, Bobby Valentine is just an idiot who doesn't know when to shut up about anything, and it was so nice when the Red Sox booted his ass out of Fenway.

This.

I understand if you had friends and family who parished in the "attacks", but for the rest of us it's just another day now.

Sure we remember what happened, and those of us who had no emotional impact on that day really wouldn't mind getting past it and moving on because there are more pressing issues now a days.

I can see his point, he just timed it poorly (should do it a few days before today since today is overreaction day) and he didn't really phrase it right. If he had just focused on the Mets players not feeling the love despite doing all of the on-the-ground things over the Yankees getting too much credit, it would have been a good piece.

Probably, but I'm not going to give him real benefit of the doubt. You're in New York, on a NY station, throwing sh*t on a NY team on an anniversary date of something terrible that happened in NYC (and elsewhere too, but you see my point). If you don't have the wherewithal/grasp to "phrase things right" given the setting, than at best you're a colossal farking idiot.

of course, I probably shouldn't throw insults around if I can't grammar good.

He's alienated everybody in Japan. He's alienated everybody at ESPN. (Not a bad thing, necessarily, but presumably really hard to do.) He's alienated everybody in Boston. Now this.

Someone needs to tell Bobby V there's no pentathlon for dickishness before he endorses the Vatican's position on pedophilia.

what a farking douche, Yankees have done a TON in new york city regarding 9/11 and representing service men and women, firefighters and police.

He really needs to fark off.
 
2013-09-11 09:55:17 PM  
It's a good thing nobody with two brain cells to rub together would ever let this man near a real live baseball team's manager office. The results could be caustic to the fan base.
 
2013-09-11 10:27:17 PM  
Maybe they were there and Bobby just didn't notice because they wore better disguises than he did.

Ewwww, actually having to be happy at that Bahston grand slam in the top of the 10th against the Rays...so dirty.

What a grade-A asshole. So glad the Sox ditched him after 1 year, but sad that a year was wasted.

Since I stopped giving a fark about baseball in any earnest fashion, here is the scenario I find myself hoping for:

1. Yankees make the "playoffs" with a negative run differential (has this ever happened?)
2. Yankees (specifically, A-Rod) win the WS, preferably with major contribution by A-Rod like last time.

This would be the debacle befitting of the sport.  Neither is really about the Yankees, but the Yankees happen to be in the unique position to make both happen this season.

If the Roid filled Redsox can come back 0-3 to win a world series then anything is possible.

The D-Backs had the best record in the NL with a negative run differential in 2007.

The one day I dont listen to Joe and Evan of course this happens.

John Buck 41: What a grade-A asshole. So glad the Sox ditched him after 1 year, but sad that a year was wasted.


Well, on the bright side it made Boston dump all those salaries/bad players and John Farrell couldn't come to the Sox last year anyways, if I remember correctly. And last year would make anything happening this year look good in comparison, but especially now that the Red Sox have the best record in baseball and has a killer offense.

Bobby Valentine is an asshole.  Ric Romero will fill in the details at 11.

Dude, he rides bikes and invented the wrap sandwich.  The man is a god.
