Joe Morgan is D-U-M-B


I know it's all trendy to hate Joe Morgan and I hate to join trends but it's just too true.

I'm watching the Yankees-Angels game and the Angels have runners at the corners. Rivera hits a grounder to A-Rod and he looks the runner back and throws to 2nd. The 2nd-baseman clearly steps off the bag before he catches the ball. The umpire calls the runner safe. That seems to be the right call to me.

Joe Morgan gets all upset because he was a 2nd-baseman. He admits he stepped off the bag before the ball was caught but keeps trying to tell me it doesn't matter. How can you argue with that? God forbid you admit you were wrong, [fine, I'll say it] cobag!

It's quite common for it to not really matter if the second baseman steps off the bag ... they usually still give them the out if they're trying to turn the double play.

To get mad at Joe Morgan for saying that calling the guy safe in the playoffs when he would have been out normally seems a little pointless.

Anyway, if you're going to hate anyone, why not go for Tim McCarver? I mean, there's a shutuptimmccarver.com but not one for Joe Morgan.

Better yet, perhaps you should complain about the fact that the Cardinals game on Saturday starts at 8 Pacific. That's 11 PM Eastern ... it't ridiculous. The one game I'll be able to watch and it doesn't start until 11 PM. Screw Bud Selig ... he did the same thing back in 2002 and is still just as much of a dick to the Cardinals

I can't hate Joe Morgan, only because I love what;s his name Jon Miller so much, and they always go together. Morgan bugs me but does not grate.

Also, I am coming out here now, that I will enter the Angels-White Sox series as rooting for the White Sox, only because of their long suffering. However, if either team acts extra cobaggy, I will root heartily for the other. So as not to make Seitz too mad.

You guys are speaking a whole nother effing language. What the hell is a cobag?

I almost had to exchange harsh words with three losers at the show tonight because one of their girls was talking to my friend. These harsh words would have likely led to me defending myself in such a manner as to end up jailed, but they backed off. I am rather pleased with my ability to alpha male when necessary. I just wanted to listen to music and these idiots wanted to posture. Dumbasses.

Ok, so I was pretty drunk when I posted that. It is all drunk=true, but it just looks recockulous. I was no way close to a fight. Those guys were being idiots, but other than that most of it was all in my head, which was full of Pabst. I said, it, PABST!!!! ARARDRRHGD! That's fightin' beer! AHOY! AVAST!! SHIVER ME TIMBERS AND BOARD EM YA MANGY CURS!

I know you generally give the 2nd-baseman benefit of the doubt if he tries to turn a double play...but he didn't try to turn a double play. In which case it's a force out and I don't think it's unreasonable to expect him to keep his foot on the bag.

Also, Joe Morgan likes the Yanks way too much and that pisses me off in the first place. Besides, I still have a little bit of a soft spot for McCarver. Morgan, on the other hand, seems determined to argue the same three points every time I see him on TV.

As for the cobag...I made it a link.

Ok, now I understand the Cobagging. Bran muffin is also a decent insult. My next question is this: why is it so hard for PP to string words together into a coherent sentence? He uses adverbs when he wants to use nouns. Did he sleep through English class in junior high?

Chuckles, are you some anal retentive hose beast that couldn't handle any or all of the following:

Gravity's Rainbow
The Sound and the Fury
Any stream of consciousness?

You're still just drunk from your crappy AiH show. Don't be such a COBAG, you bran muffin muncher.

It's all in good fun, isn't it?

I read The Sound and the Fury in high school and you need consciousness to have a stream of it. All the evidence points to a distinct lack of said necessity in PP's crew. The WRNs could outdrink and outthink you colonic ejections any day of the week.

Chuckwagon, bring it with your Ph.D. any day of the week. You're gonna be eating my acrylamide soaked Converse, and then Prof. Booty gonna touch you with his Noodly Appendage.

AND THEN YOU WILL EAT IT COBAG.

MJ' always knows what I mean, and what I say, and what I intend to mean when I say it.

Noodly Appendage? Long, thin and limp. Scary!

Well I aint talking about his dick, and that ain't gonna be hard around you anyway, I don't know what you were thinking. You'll never expect the slap, damn thing will put your brain in your lap straight up.

I am too smart for this conversation.

I'm gonna have to call *foul* on that, Chuckaroni. You can be far more withering than that without resorting to suck obvious ploys; has our time together taught you nothing.

Dude, that swollen brow is NOT extra brain cells, I don't care what your momma said. Also, once you pass an insult threshhold I will resort to the robot voice. It is unassailable.

Who needs a swollen melon to be smart? Certainly not Einstein. Although, if this conversation is any inverse measure of our capacity to maintain intelligent discourse, PP would easily be classified as macrocephallic and I, microcephallic.

No, I would be a femtocephalic and you would be a gigacephalic. And phalli got nothing to do with it. SPELLING FLAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also you have a nanophallus!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAh

I must concede this point. Did I mispell the word in question,or was I making a jest of such supreme subtlety that not even I understood it?

Who the hell is Joe Morgan anyway?

Chuckles, we love ya, why are you hatin on Three Bs!?

We have been posting non-stop chaste space cake, and no love from the Chuckwagon.

Just answer the question, Pinkie. Who the hell is Joe Morgan?

I hate you not because you are bullish. I hate you not because you are foolish. I hate you not because you are morons. I hate you because you are incapable of good, honest, rational thought.

Huzzah!

Put down the Atlas Shrugged and get on the Three Bulls! train!

Joe Morgan is like invisible pie, he does not exist!

Ayn Rand is for wannabe carpet munchers. I've never read anything by her, as I do not care.
