The Post Mortem: Sox Fans Fold

One had to wonder what would happen when baseball’s most obnoxious fans met the most dangerous. Would the brash bullies from Southie have the courage to run their mouths against Raiders fans in Dodgers jerseys?

Not so much.

The Red Sox fans assumed the turtle position like Claude Lemieux.

Figures.

The Red Sox fans have no problem getting in the face of a soccer mom holding a baby. The Red Sox fans have no problem brandishing a weapon to a woman in a wheel chair. But that stuff wasn’t going to fly in the coliseum. Apparently not being the majority (like what happens in certain sections of Angels Stadium) or having the balls to run their mouths to – as one diminutive Red Sox fan at work put it – those (expletive Hispanics), helped quell what could have been another “Boston massacre.”

And that’s all you need to know about the front-running Sox fans. No wonder so many of them wear pink hats.

But this should serve as a warning to anybody attending Angels vs. Red Sox games this summer. The Red Sox fans are not going to take this embarrassment lightly. So the elderly and disabled are warned. Red Sox fans are going to be pissed and they will be looking for some strollers to kick over.

You have been warned.

  • Boston and New York faced each other in the Super Bowl. More than 115,000 Sox and Dodgers fans filled the Coliseum on Saturday. Lil’ Hater just can’t get his blimp license fast enough.

  • You have to give credit to the Dodgers fans for showing up on Saturday. That actually was a pleasant surprise. And this doesn’t condone Dodgers fan behavior, but in instances like this, you have to favor the locals.

  • A caller on the radio summed up the look for the Coliseum best when he described it as Major League Baseball meats Rock-n-Jock softball. Very fitting. But it should be pointed out that left field was a touch farther 50 years ago, but the current configuration of the Coliseum bastardized the dimensions on Saturday.

AND FINALLY
Congratulations to those of you who picked the chalk for the Final Four this season. And that’s not a slight. There are four teams that were certainly a cut above everybody else and its rare that they all make it to the Final Four. This is actually a good thing.

The games last week were an incredible letdown. Final Four weekend now has a chance to be one of the best ever. Four dominant teams doing their thing.

And the whole notion that UCLA could be the Buffalo Bills of college basketball almost is too good to be true.

This is where a prediction would be handy but believe me, you are better off.

sheer numbers. shows you who the REAL los angeles team is. you imposters in ORANGE COUNTY should take notice. thats where the real war is gonna be. not with those idiots 3000 MILES away! you halo fans are no better than anyone, get off your horse. you halo fans are just as obnoxious with that stupid rally monkey and crap. hell you had to put a mini THUNDER MOUNTAIN in left field to fill space cause they couldn't fill seats. i remember going to THE BIG A when it was more than half empty. yet i'm pretty sure FENWAY was closer to being full since as we all know RED SOX baseball is a way of life there. CALIFORNIA ANGELS BASEBALL is relatively young. you're talkin 100+ years of history v.s. what? 10? better know what you're getting into by callin out the nation. HALO FANS ARE ALL BIGMOUTH TALKERS. PERIOD. all you halo fans, at any sign of trouble in the parking lot, run to your suv's and start dialin ANAHEIM POLICE! yeah, halo fans are tough...lol

So I'm confused. Is the drunk, semi-literate, 5'2" tough guy posting under the alway courageous nom de guerre "anonymous" a Dodger fan or a BloSox fan? Or does it depend on which sports bar men's room he's manning the glory hole in? I'm guessing whichever it is, he hasn't been to game at either yard since the Boy's Club did away with their "Sorry Your Dad's In Jail And Mom's Banging Uncle Chopper Again Here Have A Ticket In The Nose-Bleeds" program. I think we should help him out. While we can't provide him with an education... or self-awareness... or even the level of coherence demonstrated by tweekers crashing after a four day binge, we could get him something that would shine a little light into the dank, crusty tube sock of his existence: We could get him a functioning "caps" key.
BTW, my verification word is "eomuuwii" which, as some of you may know, is Cherokee for "You can keep the boot. I'd never wear it again."

I take it anonymous has thrown in the white towel.

I see we've moved from the "USC football fellatio" portion of the year to the "Ana-crime Angels fellatio" portion on this blog.

Ah the changing seasons...

UCLA the Buffalo Bills of college hoops? That's the dumbest thing I've read in a long time. I'm no Bruins fan, but give me a break. If you want to compare them to an NFL team maybe Pittsburgh or San Francisco or Dallas would be more apporpriate.

NFL Adam said...

The changing of the seasons it is.

For the record, the Bills/Bruins comparison is apt because, well, the Bills lost four consecutive Super Bowls. Maybe I should wait for the Bruins to lose a fourth, but come on -- that's close enough.

And if you want a history lesson, realize that the Bills did win consecutive AFL titles in 1964-65, and lost its bid for a three-peat the following year to the Chiefs (maybe, don't quote me on that). I would look that up for sure, but since you can't bother to register for a name, why should I make the effort?

N. Animus said...

Yes, everyone knows you have to register in order to assign a name to your post.

You've got me all wrong, Anonymous Internet Tough Guy. I'm trying to help you improve your writing skills so that the other guys at the Honor Ranch will quit calling you "Corky" when they pull their regular shower-train on your scrawny ass. You see the caps key is for words that start with big letters, like the "Y" at the start of this sentence. When you don't use it properly and instead capitalize full words at random, it reflects poorly on the home schooling your mother gave you when she wasn't down at the local shelter reporting another domestic abuse charge against Jack Daniels or Old Grandad. Believe it or not, I used to tutor kids with learning disabilities and, while all of them had more game than you, I feel a certain obligation to do what I can. I won't bother explaining why typing "P.S.S." or "bated" is the same as writing "asswipe" on your forehead in indelible marker. Instead I'll just point out that I had you pegged the first time. You haven't been to MLB game since that last time the local Fire Department dropped some off tickets with the canned hash in the charity basket when you were 8. Hell, you don't even like sports, but talking about your beer can collection or your Megadeath shrine just doesn't play well in most comment threads, does it? The reason you don't use a name is that, in your heart, you'd know you misspell that too. The reason you don't claim a squad is because you're too fucking stupid to understand the box score, let alone the infield fly rule. My verification word is "qxjrrzij". Go home. It's stamped on that 5 pound block of cheese Mama just brought back.
