Another night at Turner Field, another brutal loss. While listening to the game (my cable is out and the Cablevision bastards can't make it to my house until MONDAY), I was reminded of this horrible song by the Nirvana ripoffs Bush. The chorus in it goes, "Oh, those little things can kill." And indeed they can: Kaz Matsui not being able to turn a double play; Ramon Castro not making Pedro Martinez aware of Marcus Giles running home; the head-slapping failure of the Mets to get any of the folks that provided the 5 extra base hits across home plate. I could go on and on, but I think I won't.
Come to think of it, maybe it's good my cable is out--I didn't get to see the bungles in the field, and I don't have to hear Fran Healy and Keith Hernandez. Perhaps Cablevision knew what they were doing. Hmmmm.....
And tonight's WFAN highlight: When Willie Randolph called on Shingo Takatsu, Gary Cohen said, "Here's someone just old enough to remember The Beatles, which is good since he has was can only be described as a Beatles haircut." Howie Rose then said, "When was he born? 1968? That's right around the time of The White Album." Rose paused, and then said, "Am I really going to do this?" He chuckled, then said, "I bet he said to the White Sox, 'Don't Pass Me By.'"
Oh I laughed. These two guys are amazing. We should just do a blog about the references they bring into every game.
