Props on the headline.
2002-09-11 05:35:27 PM  
Kudos to the headline writer.
2002-09-11 05:35:35 PM  
Almost as funny as that "Dam presses up against moaning dyke" one. Very nice.
2002-09-11 05:36:29 PM  
Yes, and the Mariners too. Go Angels!!!!!

Heh...everyone's talking about the headline, just like I was going to.

I'm suddenly unoriginal.

And yes, Go Angels.

Check out the Angels/A's preview for tonight, especially the charts at the bottom showing last 10 and rankings. Those are some impressive teams.

The headline would be a lot better if it didn't link to an article about the Red Sux actually winning a game.

Best Headline. EVER.

Check the facts. www.skeptic.com

Eurban Legend, water does not run "backwards" below the equator.

Excellent! Truly nice. That headline was so good, I don't even want to read the article.

Oh, wait. I never read the article.

My bad. Carry on.

I'm starting to wish the Sox would finally win just so their whiney fans would just STFU.

There are few things funnier than hearing Red Sox fans get all uppity in April and May.. then they get quieter and quieter. Notice it's September now, so you don't hear anything from a SINGLE ONE of them.

And the headline's awesome!

Don't mess with Boston...but the Red Sox still suck
2002-09-11 07:07:11 PM  
What did Ramirez do last night that this guy is so outraged over?
2002-09-11 07:29:32 PM  
Frank2: Manny squibbed a dribbler tback to the pitcher and walked back to the dugout instead of running it out.

ah. not too cool. thanks for the info.

Dbho - As an undergraduate physics major, I sympathize, but you're missing the point. For Red Sox fans, their collective persecution complex is the closest thing to a sense of group identity they have. Also, most of them wouldn't understand angular momentum if you spun them in a circle.
2002-09-11 07:45:37 PM  
I'm not complaining (since I am a sox fan), but why is there so many Red Sox stories on Fark?
2002-09-11 08:04:15 PM  
Trust me. There is nothing you can say about the BoSox thay hasn't aready been said in Boston. Nobody cares about them anymore. It's all about the Pats now..
2002-09-11 08:05:54 PM  
The Red Sox suck, they're almost as bad as the Yankees...almost but not quite.
2002-09-11 08:06:57 PM  
Yeah, I wonder how Kentucky's baseball team is doing... oh wait a minute...
2002-09-11 08:23:42 PM  
My pleasure.

How does your being a physics major give you insight or empathy into the collective persecution complex from which we suffer? In the same sense of irrelevance, as an English major, I am not only well versed in angular momentum, laminar flow and torque, but also sequential summation of movement. Also, the resurgence of the Pats has quelled that complex somewhat, leaving true New Englanders merely apathetic to the mediocrity of the Sox and B's, though at least Sox management tries to win.

Funny headline, but save it for a story about the Red Sox losing.
2002-09-11 08:29:08 PM  
Um. Go Whalers?
2002-09-11 08:34:40 PM  
What if the Red Sox played in Bizarro world?
2002-09-11 09:08:25 PM  
Too bad the coriolis force does not influence which direction a sink empties, funny headline, but you would flunk intro meteorology.
2002-09-11 09:10:57 PM  
Which way do the toilets flush down there? Somebody call the drainage commission.
2002-09-11 09:21:14 PM  
Bad Coriolis please read... stupid aussies.
2002-09-11 09:51:11 PM  
Man I hate Manny. He used to be a cool player but then he thought he was too good for the Indians. He can kiss my ass.
2002-09-12 01:51:14 AM  
i read the whole damn article looking for something amusing too. funny headline, but totally out of place and physically incorrect. oh well, i should be in bed anyways.
