Nursing that Irish Hangover

ireland hangover.jpgWhat, exactly, is an Irish hangover you might ask?


For most people, it's the same as a regular hangover (dehydration, vomiting, possibly waking up next to a bearded lady), only the sun is still up 'cuz you started partying at ten in the morning.

OR...

In my case, it mostly concerns dealing with a slew of sore face muscles caused by laughing too much.  The following video will do that to ya:



I know this vid is old, but hell, it ain't stoppin' Mr. Krause and I from grabbin' our firearms to join the hunt.  Besides, the mystery of this southern leprechaun is as funny as Kyle Farnsworth is terrifying.

And believe me, that's a lot.

Happy Friday!

The proverbial (and literal) gloves come off in this verbal masquerade of utter ridiculousness and yes, injuries do occur (though mostly to Johanna and, since they are mental in nature, hardly noticed).  Among the topics of conversation one will find: Jeff's wandering Forever 21 eyes, Zack Greinke's ribs, the difference between a half and a full nelson, Cameroonian baseball, Bud Selig-bashing take 47 and much, much more... all to make you smile, laugh and play!

Holla!

Killin' It In 140 Characters or Less

oliver perez mets tweet.jpg

And thus continues the neverending sobfest that is the post-2008 season New York Metropolitans.

They just... haven't been the same. 

And now with the Madoff fallout hindering the club financially, I expect we will be hearing a lot of vitriolic critiques, like the one above on Ollie.  Oh Ollie...

I don't feel sorry for him.

Still, rather than sling crud at those who cannot defend themselves, we at RSBS prefer to just hit below the belt every once in a while.  As long as we draw a laugh out of ya, all is fair.

Hate me, just don't hate me 'cuz I'm right.

Peace,

Jeff

Double Talkin' Double Dream Hands

Jeff & Allen 2.2009 010.jpg

"It would be nice if my coauthor had similar intestinal fortitude when considering baseball orthodoxy."
--Mr. Allen Krause, March 9, 2011

In the above quote my gruff and oft extraneous colleague, Mr. Krause (also pictured above), says a bunch of stuff without really saying a bunch of stuff.  Like a politician jockeying for the attention of the masses, he assumes that by stuffing some multisyllabic extra-credit words in your face, that you will just trust he knows what he's talking about, that you will quietly nod and accept his worldview even though it has no basis in reality (ironically, this is exactly what evangelicals are famous for, the very people Mr. Krause was thwarting all along).

POPPYCOCK!

For ye are the dear readers of RSBS -- a vast realm of learned...

Orthodoxy, Zombies and Baseball

Jeff_2009.jpg

When Jeff and I discuss our views on the past, present and future of baseball, we often disagree but rarely allow the dissent to become mean-spirited.  Sure, there may be the occasional ad hominem attack comparing the other person to Neville Chamberlain but it's all in good fun.  Baseball, like most aspects of life, evolves over time and as choices get made, we see how those choices affect the game and debate the effects.

What happens when your debate can never be settled, though?  For instance, what happens when the the debate itself is grounded in faith and a belief that things work one way or another in the afterlife?  I'm not talking about zombies here, because we (and others) have already made preparations for that.  If and...

Mixing Up the Icons

reagan_eisenhower.jpgI often mix up Micky Mantle and Roger Maris.  I think it has something to do with the similarities between the names, the fact that they both played for the Yankees and that I wasn't alive when either one of them was playing.  Admittedly, this isn't much of an excuse and I should probably feel pretty bad even admitting that this is true but if you can't be honest on the internet, where else can you go?

However, as bad as my mix-up may be, it's nothing compared to the mistake Republicans have made for the past 30 years.  Whoops

Ok, before you comment, yes, I do realize that the Onion is a satirical newspaper even if this distinction is not always apparent.  But the beauty of the Onion is that its...

The Butt of All Jokes

kim kardashians butt 2.jpgWhen it comes to teams I really wish I could get behind, it starts and ends with the Seattle Mariners.  Yes, I admit: my heart really goes out to the city of Seattle and its long moribund baseball team.  Since that magical 2001 season, things haven't been too bright in the Emerald City.

kim kardashians butt 3.jpgThey lost their NBA basketball team.  Their football team is... well, it has had its ups and downs, (mostly downs).  And the M's... well, let's just say that maybe Safeco Field would be better suited to host the Ichiro Show than an actual full nine every...
