Suspend everyone involved for a year and dock them that much pay. If that means neither team can participate in the rest of the season or the next, then who the fark cares.

Or, alternatively, just mouth a lot of stupid noise about violence not being acceptable, have some League idiot respond by making some tough-sounding, official-like things on TV, hand down a few fines that amount to loose change and peanuts, and continue as always with a sport that every year skews more into inanity and irrelevance.

Three maybe four punches that connected and then a bunch of people on top of each other.

Oooohhhh... scary stuff.

Violence is the all-American pastime, right?

I hate it when I go to a baseball game, but get hockey instead.

Eh, let them fight and get injured. A suspension here or there won't do anything. These guys start missing sizable parts of the season due to injury and the owners will solve this problem right quick.

They certainly aren't hockey players, that's for sure. It was like a young kids' soccer game chasing the ball with some people flailing around trying to hit something.

The last time I saw a Mariners-Angels game this poorly umpired, Enrico Palazzo was involved.

Super Chronic: The last time I saw a Mariners-Angels game this poorly umpired, Enrico Palazzo was involved.


ha.  i saw Dead and Company (the latest iteration of the post-Jerry Garcia living members of the GD) at Dodger Stadium a few weeks ago.  the stage was set up in center field facing home plate.  i had field seats, so it was surreal to be standing in shallow center field.

anyways, I left that spot and watched the second half of the show wandering around the stadium.  at one point I chuckled to myself, noting they had the baselines heavily cordoned off, thinking, "holy shiat, that's where Enrico Palazzo started ringing people up!"

(if i recall they shot the exteriors at Angels Stadium, but the field/game sequence at Dodger Stadium for whatever reason.  and i just watched Naked Gun a few days ago, and godamn, for a 30 year old movie, it still holds up.)

As usual, Jomboy has a great breakdown.

Angels and Mariners brawl, a breakdown

(Well, I can see I can't just post it in the thread as I intended, but y'all can click through and verify your age.)

Jomboy is uncannily good at lip-reading, although he confesses to not fully comprehending what Nevin says, starting at around 2:43. He sees it as "you go say it in the farking post game." To me, the last two words appear to be "bull shiat," not "post game," but I have no idea what he says up to that point.

As a player, Phil Nevin was a former draft bust who suddenly developed 30-homer, and then 40-homer, power in the early 2000s, after he was 30, when he was teammates with guys like Ken Caminiti, Greg Vaughn and Steve Finley. Then he became injury-prone and mysteriously less effective around 2004 or 2005. Not that I'm implying anything about this latest fit of, ahem, rage.

Gonna see 'em in Philly on the 10th and then in NYC on the 15th-16th.

And then -- I've been telling myself this for a few years, actually, but not following through -- I might be done with it. I'm agreeing with the masses who say D&C are just too slow. They didn't start out that way; they were great for a couple of years.

that's really cool!

LA was pretty mediocre.  a lot of the jams went on and on and on and on and on but they weren't going anywhere.  "c'mon boys, let's land this damn plane already!"  they also played some songs I really don't care for (Dear Mr. Fantasy > Hey Jude, the encore was Werewolves, which I can't farking stand).  it was a fun experience but musically, kinda clunky.  A few outstanding songs here and there but I found myself getting bored.  the tempo thing i don't really mind, it was just pretty clear this was the first show of the tour.  missed cues and no one asserting themselves for far too long.  and yeah, i told my wife this is probably my last 'travel' show (i live in phoenix).

first set dead center about 15-20yards from stage, kinda got bored, and then wandered around the stadium as i said.  this was during Stella Blue, which then led into (shocker) Saturday Night, then Werewolves.  I literally left once I recognized it, to beat the crowds.

i haven't really been following them, but what i have seen, what stands out is how short they are.  they're still playing, you know, an hour long first set but "only" 5-6 songs, which goes to what i said;  these long, long jams that are not really doing much.  I had a 12 minute Jack Straw and a literal 17-18 minute 'Stranger'.

Less is more sometimes, boys...

/the Drums>Space was really, really cool.  i usually hit the bathroom but they had this cool techno thing that slowly fused into this really cool ambient synth type thing.  kinda says a lot for me when one of hte highlights is D>S.  *shrug*

/second set opener was Scarlet > China > Rider > Fire.  a bit too cute with itself and they had a hard time finding the opening and landing spot for Fire (and, I don't really care for Fire, period.  like i said, wasn't really 'my' setlist, outside of a few songs.

My white whale is Dire Wolf. Never seen it in ~80 shows, and that's the most significant song that has eluded me. It hasn't always been in rotation, but it is now. If I see it in one of the upcoming shows, maybe that will be the universe telling me to declare victory and go home.

Never had a shortage of Let It Grows, though. I even saw a couple of full Weather Report Suite versions by Furthur (the best of the post-Jerry bands IMO).

I'd love to see a full Suite. My first Terrapin was Further. They sandwiched Samson and Delilah in with it. Was pretty cool.

they played Phoenix in October, a fantastic show.  Dire Wolf opened the show.  problem was, they were checking vax cards, and the show was set for a 7pm start.  I'm in line with my parents and a friend, it's like, 6:43 or some shiat, we're about 7-8 people from the entrance, and the band starts playing.  there were literally thousands of people behyind us, people start yelling at the security, "c'mon, just let us in!"  we missed basically the first half of it, scrambling to our seats.

at the set break i went to get a drink and saw people still getting scanned in.  couldn't be lieve it.  some people missed the entire first set. and then, during Drums, friend and I went for a drink and people were stillllllllllllllllllll getting in. insanity.

yeah it's so played.  and of course, Samson on a Sunday show. I was happy I didn't get West LA Fadeway though, and Tennessee Jed utterly bores me.  West LA is just.....I utterly don't care for it.  but DMF>Jude, ugh.  and werewolves, god that was a kick in the balls.  hate that farking song.

don't think I've ever caught a Terrapin in 50-60 shows, between the GD (twice), Ratdog, Other Ones, Further, The Daed, and D&C.  i love it, just don't recall ever getting it.  and I've only caught one Sugar Mag (1998).  that's my white whale - one of my favorites but I always always always miss it.  gah!

Tennessee Jed usually elicits a "meh" from me but sometimes the performance surprises me, on their better days.

Werewolves, I dunno... kind of a throwaway, but I've only seen it twice that I can think of.

Thirded on One More Saturday Night. Or maybe I wouldn't mind if they played it where it belongs, in the middle of the first set, where they might otherwise be playing, like, Minglewood or something.

I think I've seen Terrapin more than any other song, and I love it. Probably my all time fave. Got to see the hardly played "album ending".

Wait, I just saw this... how is this possible?

The dork that I am, I've plugged my setlists into a spreadsheet, which I then sorted by frequency. I don't have it with me now but I'm pretty sure Sugar Mag is in third place, after Not Fade Away and Playing in the Band. (Not counting Drums and Space of course.)

KingKauff: Got to see the hardly played "album ending".


in the haze of my memory, I now think I mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmight have seen one with Ratdog, but I don't remember the date so I can't check.

another one I always miss is Eyes.  I've only seen to my memory, one, and that was in 2002.  I know i caught it 5/26/02 DC but that mgith be the only one ever.  which is a shame as that's a top 10 song for me.  i have probably 10-12 versions on my phone, between 73, 77, the obvious Branford 3/29/90, and a couple of officially released ones.  i never catch that!

what setlist sorter is that?  I did one for U2 but I don't recall seeing a GD one.

yeah, 7/21/98 The Other Ones is the one and only SugMag.  I'd love to see what song I've seen the most, or obv the nevers/one time club.

one of the great buzzkills was Tucson 2/26/13 or so, when towards the end, they were jamming out of something and Bobby started what kinda sounded like the Sug Mag riff, but not quite, and i was like, "YES, finally!!!!, here we go!"

then he slammed in 'Easy Answers'.  WTF?  to end the second set?  THAT song?  ha!

Manually typing into Excel. Took me a couple of hours several years ago, and I've updated since then. I had long been curious.

Luck of the draw, I guess. Underrepresented songs for me, that I can think of, would be Scarlet-Fire, which I never saw Jerry sing and have seen maybe five or so times post-Jerry, and Brown Eyed Women.

one of the more difficult songs to play.  i mean, Unboken Chain is a monster, H>S>F, but, those chords are really tricky.  same with Mission.  Sometimes Jerry wrote some fairly basic songs, and then he'd pull those songs out and you're like, "E flat diminished 7th, and then a D maj 7 suspended, to F6 augmented?  haaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllrighty then!"

Maybe he's freakishly strong or has some hidden martial arts training or something, but Jesse Winker strikes me as a bit on the skinny side to be strutting all the way over towards the opponents dugout and start a scrum with an entire team by himself.

I think more than anything, he was going for Phil Nevin (the interim manager) because it was blatantly obvious that he ordered the hit. Considering that MLB banned him for 10 games and the pitcher who threw it only 3 andthe pitcher chose not to appeal the suspension (which never happens); I think that's a fair assumption to make.

i wondered if Trevor Bauer was goign to appeal his suspension.  my guess is the MLBPA told him to fark off, "bro, don't even try to make us defend the shiat you pulled.  take your farking medicine, see you next April."

This reminds me of a story an old for hire cowboy told me about cattle roundups they did in rough mountains on horseback. They would all unload on the first day and start rounding up the cattle and at sunset theyd make camp and corral all the horses together. The horses, especially young stallions  would decide to form a pecking order and they would kick and bite and generallly try to beat the hell out of eachother. And the old cowboys would let em go. But they made sure that the orneryest horses that were scratched and bruised up got worked extra hard the next day despite the soreness. By the second day there were hardly any fights and usually no fights by day 3 onwards in the roundup.  Sort of the opposite of what MLB does

what setlist sorter is that?  I did one for U2 but I don't recall seeing a GD one.

yeah, 7/21/98 The Other Ones is the one and only SugMag.  I'd love to see what song I've seen the most, or obv the nevers/one time club.

one of the great buzzkills was Tucson 2/26/13 or so, when towards the end, they were jamming out of something and Bobby started what kinda sounded like the Sug Mag riff, but not quite, and i was like, "YES, finally!!!!, here we go!"

then he slammed in 'Easy Answers'.  WTF?  to end the second set?  THAT song?  ha!


So I'm home now, and here's the top of the list (excluding D/S) -- and I wasn't even aware that there was a four-way tie at the top:

15 times - Not Fade Away, Playing in the Band, Sugar Magnolia, The Other One
14 times - Althea, Franklin's Tower, Help on the Way, Slipnot
13 times - I Know You Rider, One More Saturday Night, St. Stephen, The Wheel
12 times - Bertha, China Cat Sunflower, Eyes of the World, Shakedown Street, Throwing Stones

It seems obvious that Help/Slip/Frank would all have the same number, but I did once see a Help/Slip without a Frank, and another time I saw a Frank without a Help/Slip. Note also that I have one more IKYR than China Cat; see Furthur, Brooklyn, 7/14/12.

rickythepenguin: desertgeek: andthe pitcher chose not to appeal the suspension (which never happens); I think that's a fair assumption to make.

i wondered if Trevor Bauer was goign to appeal his suspension.  my guess is the MLBPA told him to fark off, "bro, don't even try to make us defend the shiat you pulled.  take your farking medicine, see you next April."


He is appealing it, but nothing's happened regarding that to my knowledge.

/also, he's busy suing media publications for reporting on his raping unconscious women

Anaheim is great for basebrawls because the photo bay is on the home plate side of the dugout. Scrums tend to migrate there.

Even when trying to appear serious, baseball still looks really damn silly. Was there even a punch thrown in this?
