What a game, quick holiday?

November 26, 2007

Had a chance to take my oldest son to see the Pats/Eagles game last night. What a game. I am a pretty big Andy Reid fan. I had a chance to briefly meet him while in Philadelphia and watch him coach in that city for a few years. I’ve always respected his approach and thought he was an exceptional x’s and o’s guy who many times had his team playing beyond it’s capability be it injured players or a short roster.

I thought he did as good a job as any coach in the NFL last night. That being said the greatest team I’ve ever seen won again. I would imagine there will be no shortage of f’bombs or sweat this week in Pats practices but I just can’t get over watching this team play. I am and always will be a dyed in the wool Steeler fan. My 4 years here has made me a pretty big fan of the franchise playing in foxborough.

When anyone talks greatest team ever my first defense is the mid to late 70s Steelers who, it seems, has their entire rosters in the HOF. This team trumps that and any other team I’ve ever seen. In a day and age of TOTAL parity in the NFL, where everyone has to play by the same rules, the Pats have done the unthinkable.

Take ‘camera gate’ and place it where the sun doesn’t shine, using that as a basis for any discussion on why this team is what it is means you’re nothing more than a Bellicheck/Pats/Kraft hater with minimal football knowledge.

This team, in the day and age of every possible tool available to prepare, has decided that on any given day they’ll be exactly what they choose to be offensively, and there’s nothing you can do about it. They ran the ball like 10 times last night. No huddle shotgun with 4 wide outs from the first snap. It’s almost as if they, and they may be, they say ok we are going 4-5 wide, we are going to throw 40+ times today and our QB, our wide outs, our line, our game plan, is so far beyond anything you can defend we’ll even give you an extra shot, we wont punt. (And a special thanks to all my special teammates who text messaged me after seeing me on SNF, the food jokes ran rampant but the message of the night belongs to our astute GM who said “Hey Schill, hope that popcorn is worth 2 million”….) Great guys.

Unreal to watch.

Thanksgiving was great, if not fast. Had the usual dinner at the in-laws with all the trimmings. Friday was Shonda’s 40th birthday and we got a chance to spend the night with friends hanging out at a local Medfield diner called Noon Hill.

Sunday the family was invited to participate in the Annuall Quincy Holiday Parade. Turned out to be a huge event that caught us a bit off guard. We thought we were headed to a small town thing with a chance to say thanks to some local Sox fans, and it turned out to be a 2 hour + event attended by over 200k people.

One of the coolest aspects of being here, being part of this organization and this family, are things like that. 200k + people at a parade and for 2 hours the motorcycle officers of the local and state police who were escorting us got as many hellos as we did, very cool stuff. We’d ride by a throng of people and it would go something like this “Hey Schill  ONE MORE YEAR! WOO HOO! Hey Bob how’s Jody? Hey Mike see you this weekend? Hey Dave how are the kids? Tell Mom we said hello!”, the entire parade. EVERYONE knows everyone here.

Thanks again to the town of Quincy for the invitation, our kids loved the experience.

    Thanks to the Schilling family for being part of that parade. It was quite an honor for the city to have you participate. We loved that glimpse into Curt Schilling the person as opposed to the pitcher. We were at the start of the parade (your car was next to our church) and all else aside, your first concern was getting the kids situated and knowing where they would be, just atypical Dad. After that, then treating the fans with patience and decency. Maybe this is one of the reasons Boston fans have taken you in so quickly.

    Thank you again for all you do both on and off the field. We are delighted you signed on for another year.

    Truly an awesome game last night! You looked like you were having a blast. My husband is an Eagles fan and a Yankee (wannabe) fan, *I know, I know* So it was nice to see him squirm ……. again. Glad you and your family had a nice Thanksgiving.

    Thanks for the post on the game. I agree with your assessments and think the whole spygate thing is overblown.

    That said, I thought the Eagles were better prepared, the Pats should be expecting teams like the Eagles with nothing to lose to play that way, they showed a lot of heart and pride last night, that’s for sure. Shows you how much emotion can play in a game, even at this level

    Loved seeing you in the Bruschi uniform, Curt! BTW, we all cheat at Thanksgiving.

    As this is my first post, just wanted to pass along that it’s nice to see an athlete who truly gives back to the community. Many say that they do, or maybe make a a single large contribution one time to get some name recognition, but you seem to be different. You seem to envelope yourself around your causes, and give to both the big and small events. That really shows something. Thank You.

    Nothing wrong with wearing a Steelers jersey last night, Schill.

    Nor next Monday.

    The following Sunday? I dunno, man.

    My family is originally from Pittsburgh, but I was born and raised in Massachusetts. I lived in MA during the 70s and half the 80s, then moved to the Bay Area where the Niners reigned. My dad is a big Steelers, Pats, and Niners fan.

    For me, it’s just the Pats, though. And I live near Seattle now. I still didn’t care about the Seahawks when they went to the Super Bowl. :-) But I see nothing wrong with liking the home team, as long as YOUR home team is still #1, whatever home team that is …

    Hey Curt, it was great to see you and family at the Quincy Holiday Parade yesterday. I was born, raised, and now operate a small local sports bar in Quincy so it was a thrill for all of us at Blue22 to find out that you and your family was going to be in the parade…and to also see you pass by our front steps (hope you enjoy the black Tshirt)!!! I can honestly say that what you do above and beyond for the community is what separates you from everyone else as a truly genuine and unique person….not too many are in the same class. Looking forward to seeing you throw your split-fingered fastballs on our flatscreens for another year!

    Hi Mr. Schilling,

    I forgot to say THANK YOU to you and David Ortiz for calling the team meeting during the ALCS series, when you guys were down. I watched the Letterman show when Jonathan Paplebon was a guest. He gave us a little blurp of quote, unquote David Ortiz. I think it was a demonstration of what leadership and teamwork is all about. Thank you!

    You’re still loved out here in the desert!

    Curt,

    I’ve read your blog off and on. I think you’re an upstanding guy and your opinions are ‘okay’ in my book.

    BUT COME ON!! (I had to setup a WordPress account just to make a point!)
    I am a HUUUUUUGE Pitt Steelers fan and I know you are as well…..UNTIL last night when I saw you on TV. R U Kidding me with that Pats jersey cloaked around your HYPOCRITICAL body?? R U kidding me??!!!

    THE STEELERS NATION SHOULD STRIP YOU OF YOUR RIGHT TO EVER ROOT FOR THEM AGAIN!!!!!!

    I don’t care if you’re close to the Kraft family, you’re loyalty is to Steel-town. Look at yourself in the mirror and question yourself, please. Please. Hope you vomit.

    Hey now! Out of respect for the owner of the team, and the friends and players I root for I wore Teddy B’s 54. I won’t lie, I am a fan of the team, the franchise, the whole thing they have going on. I wore an Eagles jersey a few weeks back when I was in Philly. They were playing the Cowboys, and who outside of Texas doesn’t hate the Cowboys? I was rooting for the Ealges then. Last night I was rooting for the Pats. The true dilema for me will be in two weeks when the Steelers make their way here. I cannot, and will not ever root against the Greatest Sports Franchise in the history of athletics! It will be a dilema but I am cooking up what I think might be a solution.

    saw you on tv last night schill! in my opinion IF any team from here on out will stop the pats it might be the steelers because of their great defense ranked number 1 in the nfl…this isnt going to be an easy game for the pats by any means but i know that possibly the greatest team in nfl history will come out with the W.
    ps: sososo happy you are back! can’t wait for baseball season

    Hey Curt, I smiled when I saw you in the stands last night even though you didn’t have the World Series trophy waving around which is what I have been hoping for (hopefully you can bring Mike Lowell with you).
    I don’t want to spout my political views at you because this blog does not seem as though it is meant to discuss the rights and wrongs of this war.
    I support the troops and and thankful for what they have done but I don’t agree with this war. In fact when it started and the bombs were showereing Bagdad on CNN at the very start, my firs reaction was tears.
    I felt sorry for the poor people of Iraq whose homes and ancient cities were being destroyed.
    I am a Jew and have visited the region of the middle east and although I do not know how any of the conflicts can be solved in my heart I feel sadness that when people speak of being against the war in Iraq, they are immediately accused of not supporting the US troops. This is simply not true.

    I know I should probably have sent a thank you in the section you are sending to them but I somehow feel that these comments are not appropriate for the soldiers, despite my good wishes and thank yous for them.
    For me I am thankful that my autistic son is one of the best programs in the country (right her in Marlborough Massachusetts of all places). I am thankful that even though life with takes constant vigilance and many unknowns about the future, that things could be so much worse. He is physically healthy and fit. I am thankful that my almost thirteen year old daughter is not resentful of all the attention her brother takes from her life and the first question out of her mouth when she gets off the bus from school is “where is my hug?” (meaning from her little brother)
    And finally I am thankful that god shines his light into all of our lives regardless of how we choose to believe in him.
    I don’t want to rant on too much so I will sign off now. Thank you for being who you are and for listening to all of us out here. Roni in Marlborough

    I was so happy to see you at the game last night, Curt. Just good to see you and good to see you rooting for the Pats. I’ve been a big Red Sox and Patriots fan since I was a kid (in the 70s). And I love to see you guys supporting one another.

    And, regarding a prevous post of yours, thanks for supporting our troops, too.

    i’m from Rhode island and am truly a hometeam girl, win or lose, i think wearing the Pats jersey was a class act (you could have been like Elaine from Seinfeld in the owners seats with the visiting team hat on) i love that show Go Sox!

    Hello!

    What is the current word on the Sox moving to a six-man rotation? Was that just a flash-in-the-pan rumor or is there a chance of it happening? What are your thoughts on pitching every sixth day? Do you think it’d be a good trade-off?

    Just working the straight math, if pitching every fifth game next year means you pitch an average of 6 dominant innings, you’d have to pitch 7 1/3 dominant innings every sixth game for it to be about a push. Do-able?
    Or do you think you’d average more than 6 dominant innings every fifth game next year?

    (You seem aware and well-adjusted enough about your age to handle this question dispassionately. I’m not getting any younger either, am I.)

    Hey! Saw you on tv last night, hahaha, not like I see you any other way — but funny to see you as a spectator rather than a player. Anyway….I’m so disturbed with the attitudes in the fallout of last night’s game. I’ve actually got a rant drafted for my own blog for tomorrow on it. It’s like – any other team would’ve lost last night’s game. Sure the defense didn’t look good — and Brady made some not so great choices in calls at times, (hello, lateral at the very end?!?! Or, how about Ben Watson is open not Moss!) but…a win is a win. So why the news reporters and other types are walking around saying “it’s a win, but…”. C’mon. No one adjusts like Belicheck…I’m sure they won’t make the same mistakes again. And for once, we actually got to see the Pats have a little competition. Every team going in there is not going in with their tail between their legs — they want to bring the big boys down!!!
    They’re going to pull out all the stops, right? And football’s a funny game…on any given Sunday, anyone can win. Movin’ on….

    So, what is up with all the rumors surrounding the Santana trade?!?! Personally, I’d hate to see the Sox give up a solid 1-2 beginning to the lineup, but the Pedroia/Ellsbury rumors are a-flying. Do you have any thoughts you’d like to share on seeing either one of those to young’ins head out?

    In response to Curts comment to reply number 12: Curt when you say you will never root against the Greatest Sports Franchise in the history of athletics, does that mean that you would never root against THE NEW YORK YANKEES?? Because regardless of who is the champ right now, NYY are the most successful, with MORE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS than any team in any sport. When we finally once again reach the chemistry needed to rescue the Championship Trophy from the grips of the Dirty uniform wearin, long haired, unshaven Dirt Sox, it will be our sweetest Championship of all; and undoubtedly the beginning of a long tortuous drought for the needy RSN fanbase. Yanks will be back, and be back soon!!! Get ready RSN, cause we’re coming back to reclaim whats ours

    Dear Curt,

    Thanks for giving the Pats some props. I’ve been a life long Red Sox and Patriots fan. 1986 was a disappointing year for both teams. Oh those 1986 Bears. Anyways…when 2005 & 2006 did not go well for the Sox the Pats provided something to watch to take out minds off of things.

    I’m tired of this whole spygate thing. I call it sour grapes. There is no way anyone can call the Patriots the new Yankees. There is no cap in baseball!!!!!! Running up the score? I remember when the Pats were on the loosing end of or a high scoring game. I can’t remember a better Patriot team. Even on their off days they keep it together and find a way to win.

    What about the Celtics?? ZOMG!

My family has always been big Steelers fans and I have as well. Then came Tom Brady and Tedi Bruschi and Bill Bellichick….and you get the drift! I love that team! I’ll never forget the first hometown team….but this is home to me now and I am just loving The Pats.

    It was nice to see you at the Patriots game last night – albeit through my television. The popcorn did indeed look good and I am looking forward to December 9th and your Steelers.

    I am a physician down in New Bedford and I am actually writing to you regarding a charity/public health idea that I have. It revolves mainly around you and your new weigh in clause. The point of the project is that you are not the only person in Massachusetts who should watch their weight, or pay more attention to their diet, or simply get in a little better shape. The idea is that Massachusetts could join you in a safe weight loss campaign and it could benefit a charity of your choice at the same time. I have even come up with a name for the campaign which is, I think, quite catchy.

    I have tried to reach you through the Red Sox and your charitable organizations, but I have not yet had any luck. I thought I could take a shot this way. If you are interested – which I hope you are – in hearing more, please email me at ajramler@aol.com. If you think there is someone in particular that I should speak with, please let me know.

    Thank you for your time and for all the good work that you do.

    I didn’t realize a person could only root for one football team. Apparently if you profess to be a Steelers fan, but then decide to support your local team one night, you’re a fraud and a hypocrite. Really, people, grow up.

    Curt, I think it’s important when you live in a community to support that community. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with you and your family rooting for the Patriots, seeing as how you live and work right there where the team plays. It doesn’t mean you’re not a Steelers fan. Geez.

    I’m not a Pats fan myself – in fact, being a Colts fan I see the Patriots as a very big rival – but I appreciate your support of them.

    Take care.

    Or the comments that you have made about Bonds * when he hasnt been convicted of anything … yet you have judged him to death but only on rumors…

    I dont like Bonds * just proving a point , and Im not comparing rumors to what is true

    Cheating is Cheating if it is using roids, or using a corked bat your whole career

    There are people dying every day in Iraq and around the globe trying to defend our honor and yet you have people calling Curt Schilling a fraud because he wears a Patriots jersey to a Pats game. LET’S REALIZE WHAT IS IMPORTANT HERE PEOPLE! I knew Curt is a Steelers fan and had no problem with him wearing the Pats jersey. Isn’t a Pats jersey better than an Eagles jersey? What does it matter what Curt Schilling wears to a football game anyways?

    Terry Francona grew up in Western Pennsylvania as I did – is he a fraud if he roots for the Steelers against the Pats later this month?

    I used to pray that the Red Sox or my beloved Penn State Nittany Lions would win a game, but after 9/11, I realized there are so much more important things to pray for other than the result of a football or baseball game.

    Just when I think I need to get a life, there are always others more suitable…

    Just a tip to you, and the other Steelers fans who are flocking here… every Steelers fan (and football fan, and person) should read Roy Blount Jr’s “About Three Bricks Shy… and the Load Filled Up”, his landmark account of a year spent living and talking and drinking and carousing with the members of the 1973 Steelers, just as their dynasty started. Some say the best book ever about football, certainly the best book ever about football players. It’s also a sort of love note to Pittsburgh, and the old school guys who lived there, and once ran the team… can’t recommend it enough.

    Thanks again, Curt, for a great season.

    Good grief, people.

    OK, so Curt’s a Steelers fan who wore a Pats jersey to a game in Foxboro. Big deal.

    I’ve been a Red Sox fan since the early 70’s. I’ve got more than a dozen items of RS gear in my closet from hats, t-shirts, jerseys, not to mention the mugs, clocks, keychains, bobbleheads, etc. Whenever the Sox come to Tampa, I’ll be in the stands wearing my gear.

    But, when I’m at a Rays game against someone else, I have a Ray’s cap I sometimes wear. In the past 5 years, I’ve also been to games in San Francisco, Oakland, Denver, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Atlanta, Miami… and Boston. I’m pretty sure I have some kind of souvenir from all those ballparks, and I’ve worn or displayed them all at one time or another. And I still bow to no one as a fan of the Red Sox.

    Some of you really need to get a life.

    Who cares what you’re eating???? Can you strike out guys or get them to hit the bal to a player? That’s all I care about! You’ll be fine, no worries Curt.

    As far as the jersey….what the heck are you supposed to do, wear the opponents jersey in the hometown stadium????

    Let’s hope for another parade (this time the Pats) and Curt, you can be the grand marshall!

    Hey, Curt, I really like your candor! Not on topic, but wanted to tell you that and now that I have an account to post with, I’m taking this opportunity.

    Well, I’ll admit that I’m a life-long Rams fanl proudly, although this year not a lot to be whooping it up about (but not a Frontiere fan, no no no, but it’s not the Rams fault) LOL

    I also love the Pats! My bf is a total Pats fan, but I’ll still wear my Rams jersey when the Pats play. Although I do also have a Pats jersey I wear, too.

    Curt, keep up the good work – I love your style!

    Incredible game even though I was on the internet watching the boxscore. I know your a techie. Is there anyway I could get video of pats games on the internet?? I know your a busy man, but I am sure your the one who would know.

    I can see your problem with cheering for 2 teams. Die-hard fans still have hard decisions to make. You could wear a yankees hat like Tom brady and totally avoid the decision between the steelers and patriots!!!

    That pats game was a heart attack waiting to happen, kind of like the red sox, year in and year out…pre-2004, of course.

    What do you think of Papi’s recent comments? Do you agree or disagree?

    quoted from espn…

    “On another topic, Ortiz said the issue of performance-enhancing drugs in baseball had been blown out of proportion. George Mitchell is expected to issue his report by the end of the year.

    “It’s like they’ve placed that issue on the same level as [the war in] Iraq,” Ortiz said. “It doesn’t make sense to hear people talk more about whether Barry Bonds used steroids than about people dying in Iraq.”‘

    Schill…c’mon man. I was born and raised in Newport, R.I. Since age 6 I have been living and dying with the Sox and Celts. My Father did not like the Patriots ownership and had grown up in the Bronx so he was really not a Pats fan. Hating New York teams and not being MADE to love the Pats I chopse the Steelers mostly because of their colors and logo at age 6.

    NO and I do mean NO “dyed in the wool” Steeler fan wood EVER wear a Patsy jersey. NEVER! Let’s just call a spade a spade..you are a Hall of Fame pitcher….you are a great humanitarian and all around good guy, but you are not a die hard Steeler fan. You are also a politician and I would not be surprised if you had plans on parlaying your popularity in the Northeast into a political office..bravo. Just don’t profess to be something you are not. There is no way being a professed “dyed in the wool” Steeler fan, that you would have any conundrum at all. Just come clean and admit..you are a casual Steeler fanw ho roots for the Pats because he wants people in New England to get him into office..and possibly, the hall of fame.

    Hey New England Fans…keep underestimating BigBen…he will rip your hearts out.

    Curt:

    Considering Tom Brady was “talked to” for being seen wearing a MFYs hat, Steeler fans should not complain about you wearing the “home-town team’s” colors in Foxboro. Watched the game with a “die-hard” Steeler fan who had no problem with it. He is only disappointed you are not playing for Philly or *shudder* the Pirates. Fans forget that players play for teams that will hire them. What if you are a RS fan who gets drafted by the Jets? Do you start rooting for the MFYs? Fandom is fun, but some people need to get a grip.

    Nothing makes a Red Sox fan happier than seeing MFY fans like tanner12 cry and blubber that they have not won anything this decade, century, and millennium.

    Well, that and winning championships, but I suspects the likes of a tanner12 would not understand that. Perhaps his Mummy and Daddy can tell him stories of what it was like, but only if he finishes his English homework and chores first.

    –J.D.

    P.S. I have friends who are “MFYs” fans who get embarrassed when they are coupled with people like this tanner12. They are similar to rabid Red Sox fans who scream “A-ROD SUCKS” because . . . because . . . well because! They probably believed they were “cursed” and George Steinbrenner had paid off umpires and all of that.

    So you have what we see here: a child having a tantrum so he can tell friends “I pwn3d Schilling on his blog! LOL!!” as if Schill is reading it. Maybe “His People” will tell him:

    Schill’s People: Mr. Schilling? Some kid pwn3d you on your blog.

    Curt: Really? How do you think they will design the ring? We had the best record in MLB. Ted showed me his third Super Bowl ring and it has three trophies on it. You think we should have two or some reflection of that on ours?

    Schill’s People: I really do not know Mr. Schi—

    Curt: I think Johnny Pesky would love that! Hey, look at this! We’re going to have the character in this section of the game–pick up your controller. . . . .

    Fandom is one thing. Should be fun. Behavior like that of tanner12 is not fandom but pathology.

    Greatest team ever has been confirmed: 1991-95 Dallas Cowboys. Buy the book at Barnes and Noble by Ron St. Angelo. Read below.

    Three Super Bowls in four years is just part of the story. Here, in pictures and words, is why the Dallas Cowboys of 1991-1995 was the greatest team to ever play the game.
    Forget the Packers of the ’60s, the Steelers of the ’70s, and the 49ers of the ’80s. The Dallas Cowboys of the ’90s were the most brutal and successful team of them all. The Cowboys became the first team in NFL history to win three Super Bowls in just four years. Led by Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin, the team dominated the league. Writer Norm Hitzges and photographer Ron St. Angelo celebrate the greatest team ever.

    They completely dismantled the great Buffalo offense not once, but twice. The triplets would rip through the Pats defense. They would crush this Patriot team.

    hey curt, I can’t believe some of the chumps that leave comments here. Any true sports fan, especially an athlete, is able to appreciate greatness regardless of loyalty lines. For example, even though I had my ten-year-old heart crushed and trampled on by the Chicago Bears in Jan 1986, I am still able to appreciate that juggernaut of a team for what it was. I think it’s too bad when people let their emotions run their mouths without letting their brain get a little workout on the subject. I appreciate your openness on the subject (as with anything else) and LOVED seeing you on SNF the other night. Thanks again for running this blog; you always have an interesting perspective to read.

    ^ Hey butsmoocher rebsox…I was in the room the 1st night Schill was over at SOSH 4 years ago. Man, has it been that long? I also played in a SIM league with Curt and chatted with him a few times on AIM until some moron started giving his AIM out and Curt either changed it or just blocked everybody. I have talked with him about baseball, the Marines(I am a former Marine) and even the type of dip he chews.. I have been a Sox fan since birth in 1973 so please, do not question MY Fanhood..lol.

    Anyhow, I am as big a Curt fan as there is but I can still tell him when he is wrong, and he is wrong. If he professes to be a DIE HARD Steeler fan than I say DIE HARD Steeler fans..like myself would NEVER wear another teams jersey..especially a team that has tormented us in recent years. I don’t care if Curt and Teddy Bruschi play tidlly winks on Friday nights. RESPECTING greatness and promoting and rooting for a team other than the team you are a supposed DIE HARD fan of are two totally different things. Not only does Schill wear Pats Gear, he openly admits he is going to have a hard time choosing who he roots for!

    Curt..I will be there December 9th. Feel free to PM for info if you wanna drop by my tailgate! I’ll even bring an extra Roethlisberger Jersey for you.

    “just [Sic--Ed.] a commet [Sic--Ed.] on doctorx [Sic--Ed.] i [Sic--Ed.] do believe 2000 is part of this decade, . . .”

    It is not. A decade begins with the first year and ends with the tenth year. This is why it is called a “decade.” Now hold on to your high chair, for I must also reveal to you that a century ends with the hundredth year. You know, the one with the zeros? This is why it is called a “century.” Moreover, this is why the last century was known as the “20th century” and not the “19th century.”

    They should cover this in your mathematics class after punctuation, capitalization, and grammar classes, and recess, presumably.

    “. . . or didn`t mummie [Sic--Ed.] and daddy [Sic--Ed.] teach u [Sic--Ed.] anything,get [Sic--Ed.] your stories straight but, what can u [Sic--Ed.] expect from a redsox [Sic--Ed.] fan.”

    You should expect a correct argument with the proper evidence from a Red Sox fan, written with at least a passing familiarity with punctuation and sentence structure, yes.

    “will [Sic--Ed.]see what happens in 2008, [Sic--Ed.] then will see how cocky doctorx [Sic--Ed.] gets, i [Sic--Ed.] do expect nothing less from u [Sic--Ed.] redsox Flies into quite the temper-tantrum.

    There, there . . . I am sure Mummy will kiss it and make it all better for you! Make sure you ask her for help with the really “big words.”

    Oh, and a glass of milk! Good for your bones! You want to grow up and be big and strong like Big Papi, yes? Or Alex Rodriguez but able actually to hit in the post-season?

    To be honest, while there are the crybabies such as loveyanks, there have been a few good ones who respect the game and understand what being a “fan” rather than a “fanatic” means. Again, there are “fanatics” of the Red Sox who scream “he sucks!11!”–though with far better eloquence than loveyanks–regarding MFY players. There are Pats “fanatics” who scream “Peyton sucks!!11″ Same with Pitts “fanatics.” All are simply embarrassing to themselves, rather like loveyanks who, it appears, cannot type a single word without making a mistake.

    On that note:

    loveyanks:

    “ha!ha!ha!thats [Sic--Ed.] was great,jd [Sic--Ed.] did u [Sic--Ed.] stay up all night thinking about that one?”

    It takes about five minutes to spank a child.

    “i [Sic--Ed.] dont [Sic--Ed.] have to show whos [Sic--Ed.] smarter with all the big words. . . .”

    How about you try spelling just one word correctly? Can you manage that?

    Then we can work on capitalization, punctuation, and–I am not trying to scare you–calendars.

    “lets [Sic--Ed.] just remember who has more rings, the important stuff.[Sic--Ed.]”

    Let us review the catechism:

    Schilling: 3
    Beckett: 2
    Johnny Pesky: 2
    Dave Roberts: 1
    Alex Rodriguez: 0

    I am sorry, you had a point?

    This is fun:

    World Series RBIs

    Diasuke Matsuzaka: 2
    Alex Rodriguez: 0

    Sorry to make you cry.

    “i [Sic--Ed.] cant [Sic--Ed.] wait 4 [Sic--Ed.] the season to begin so we can see how all your great players r [Sic--Ed.] gona [Sic--Ed.] be,[Sic--Ed.]and u [Sic--Ed.] want to . . . Explodes into major temper-tantrum.

    I am a longtime Sox fan here posting for the first time, great blog, love it.

    Anyway, I have noticed, especially this past year that there are many different kinds of fans. There are those who are die-hard and would stick with a team through thick and thin. I am that kind of fan–hell, my first memories of being a fan is the mid-80s. I was a kid during the infamous WS of 1986, but that did not keep me from being a Sox fan. Then there are the types of fans that jump on the bandwagon after the team becomes a winner. I have seen many of these, too, the past few years. Sox Nation has grown its ranks considerably. There are fans who stay with a team until that team becomes a “loser,” then they go root for some other team. Turncoats, the lot of them.

    There are the types of fans that are gracious winners, and there are the types that will want to rub it in everyone else’s face. When I want to see the RS play the Other Sox in Chicago this past August, I saw both. One of these games, the Sox won 14-2. I am shamed to say that I saw a lot of obnoxious RS fans really being rude to the WS fans. I would say that is not a very good way to treat your “host.” The game was fun, though, and I sat next to two die-hard WS fans who were enjoying the game, even though they were losing very badly. Hey, they were there, made the best of it, and stayed the whole game, while many of the other WS fans made a mass exodus long before the game’s end. I respect them for sticking through the whole game, supporting the team.

    Then there are fans who are the sore losers, who will be vindictive, spiteful, and rude because of the other team’s successes. They do not stop at being this type of fan in real life, but feel a need to come and troll internet blogs such as this one, in barely coherent English. I have seen Yankees fans here who are a shining example of what a good fan “should” be–and I have seen others, such as loveyanks here, who are an embarrassment to the Yankees and to these fans.

    Anyway, I just wanted to get that off my chest, after reading loveyank’s diatribe and reflecting on my own experiences I have had as a fan. I cannot wait to enjoy the next season, till then, I will just watch the Patriots and the Celtics, who will hopefully bring two more championships to Boston. Cheers.

    It appears Our Crying Boylovesyanks” just cannot wash out the taste of the Most Monumental Collapse in Sports History.

    Perhaps he should ask Mummy for prune juice? Might work. Might sold that retentive problem as well. As always, I am here to help.

    Nevertheless:

    “i [Sic--Ed.] have nothing more to say [Sic--Ed.] to you jd [Sic--Ed.] (all my yankee [Sic--Ed.] friends are dying laughing at your bull) other than 26 to 2,26 to 2, 26to 2, enough said[Sic--Ed.]”

    My word, what will I do without the entertainment? However, I need to remind that the voices in the head are not friends, and there is a reason Mummy insists you continue on the haldol. Believe me, we ALL want you to get better.

    That having been written, I must note–en passant–that is is “7”–though I give them “8” since the NL team forfeited. Since all of those “26” occurred prior to the conception of Our Crying Boylovesyanks” perhaps this is more apt in deference to his youth:

    Really? Did you play for the Yankees during those seasons? All 26 of them? No? Then *you* have NO rings. That would be as ridiculous as me trying to claim any of the rings that the RS won. I did not earn them, they did, and you certainly did not earn any of the rings that the Yankees franchise has through the years.

    “no [[i]Sic[/i]–Ed.] matter when they occurred again , 26to 2, 26to 2, [[i]Sic[/i]–Ed.]”

    See? Thus the sad, pathetic the state of public education. Poor boy has yet to learn to count. Granted, the concept of “ten years makes a decade” escaped his slippery grasp, so I should not be surprised.

    Nevertheless, if he cites “26” he has to cite “7” or “8” if you count forfeits–which MLB unjustifiably does not.

    If he cites “2” then he becomes a “0.”

    Rather apt, that.

    “hey [Sic--Ed.], jd [Sic--Ed.] your [Sic--Ed.] back.i [Sic--Ed.] was beginning to think.[Sic--Ed.]”

    Apparently thinking is not his forte. I did not think it was possible for someone to so consistently demonstrate his linguistic incompetence.

    Granted, at least he moved from “UR” to “your” even if it is “you’re” or more properly in a written medium: “you are.” Since he cannot figure out the number of years in a decade–Hint: Sames as his number of fingers–it would perhaps prove rude to expect him to have mastered third grade English.

    Cries in usual temper-tantrum of failure.

    Let us see. Anything interesting in the stream of agraphic dyphasia? Ah, here is a particularly embarrassing tid bit:

    “for [Sic--Ed.] example, 03 championchip[Sic--Ed.]”

    “Championchip.”

    Unfortunately, the Red Sox have won the same amount of “championchips” as the MFYs–which is the same number of “championShips the MFY have won this decade, century, and millenium–Hint: 0.

    Another “jem” from Our Crying Child: (

    “. . . maybe you can put your computer away, and GO TO SCHOOL and learn the facts of baseball(major league that is). . . .”

    How deliciously ironic. School is the place where little boys like him should learn things like punctuation, capitalization, spelling, grammar, mathematics, and reasoning. Since he apparently thinks school is a place for him to study his baseball cards–how he manages to read them is anyone’s guess since they have things like numbers on them–perhaps we can understand why he is a FAILURE.

    Ah the mind . . . it is a terrible thing to waste.

    Though in his case, perhaps one should make an exception?

    Someone who cannot construct a simple sentence with proper spelling and grammar should not question another’s intelligence.

    Keep that in mind, son. That is my free advice to you for the day. Normally I charge people quite a bit for my advice, so you got a real good bargain.

    loveyanks wrote: so gather up what little brain cells you have left

    I think what I said in the previous response also applies here. You are hardly in the position to make such an insult. Maybe if you were not a semi-incoherent troll, I would be willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. Consider getting a hobby outside being an internet troll. That is my second free piece of advice to you for the day.

    loveyanks wrote: its still at 26 to 2

    Actually, the Sox have technically won seven. In the past four years they have won two; they technically won five previous to these. In the past four years, the Yankees have won exactly zero.

    The Sox have managed to retain the majority of their very talented staff that got them to the WS, so I have a great deal of confidence in the next few years to come. I am not so sure what is in store for the Yankees. My Yankees friends–yes, I have Yankees friends, and we get along just fine because they are mature adults–have kind of mixed feelings. They will feel a lot better if they get that good ace from the Twins, and rightfully so–yet one mentioned that the Yankees have gotten several ace pitchers in recent years that just did not work out. Who knows. Nothing is even said and done yet.

    One think I do know, however, is that you will carry on with your trolling here. I understand that you are bitter and jealous. As much as you deny it, it is pretty obvious that this is the case. Coming here and making an arse out of yourself will not make it any better. You should get over your bitter jealousy and stop being such an arse, as you are just embarrassing yourself. Instead of trolling, maybe you could take up a journal, into which you pour you troubled feelings of failure, bitterness and resentment? Or maybe consider getting a hobby outside of your bedroom such as jogging? Perhaps take up crochet with your grandmother? Maybe volunteer at a local soup kitchen? ‘Tis the season, after all.

    I realize you will probably not take any of my advice, but hey, at least I gave it a go.

    Welcome to ANOTHER Exciting Adventure of Grammar School Failure!

    When we last left our story, lovesyanks was losing a spelling bee to a lame, tap-dancing oyster ravaged by dyslexia, and Tiffany called him “Butt-breath.”

    “jealous[Sic--Ed.].”

    Indeed, Our Crying Child clearly is. Has never seen a championship in his life-time . . . sees no hope . . . the 8th graders gave him an “Atomic” wedgie.

    Sorry Curt, you must switch your allegiance to Hillary since she is the only candidate that will stomp-out “Atomic” wedgies and “swirlies” and . . . the dreaded “Rear Admiral!”

    Think of the children, Curt!

    You want to help the children . . . do you not?

    “what[Sic--Ed.] a joke.”

    Yes, Our Crying Child is. This is beyond “Red Sox and MFYs,” this is sore loser, a bad and ignorant fan. All teams have them, and they drag their other fans down. Having nothing in life, they live through their teams to the detriment of anyone who suffers the misfortune to encounter them.

    As a poster above noted, he refers to “we” winning championships . . . or is it “championchip?” Do those come with salsa? I digress.

    “We” do nothing. While I am sure my missing a class I was suppose to teach in order to listen to the radio in my car during The Game 4 clinched the eventual 2004 World Series, for some strange reason “my” ring never arrived!

    Could you get on that, Curt? Maybe it is under someone’s desk? Get back to me. . . .

    Adults understand this–they are fans, and nothing more. Children such as Our Crying Child; however, think they are “part of the game.” They are the fools who take a swipe at Gary Sheffield, or hurl insults from behind home plate directed to Jorge Posada’s child. They try to start fights in stands–with smaller opponents, of course!

    “i [Sic--Ed.]really think [Sic--Ed.]all those years of losing has, distroyed[Sic--Ed.],[Sic--Ed.]what little brain cells you all[Sic--Ed.] had left, . . .”

    Tu quoque

    Since he FAIL‘d to handle large numbers like “10,” I suppose I should not criticize him for his ignorance of advanced mathematics:

    “Let us review the catechism!”

    2 World Series Championships in 4 years

    0 in 7 years.

    Quod erat demonstrandum. . . .

    Continues in his incoherently incontinent indignant irr [Get on with it.--Ed.] temper-tantrum.

    I find it thoroughly relaxing to spank children, particularly other people’s children. I feel I have engaged in community improvement. Rather than go to the corner and “think about it,” Our Crying Child returns to spew a word-salad so he can try to impress the “Kool Kidz” that he “Pwn3d” Curt Schilling on his blog as if they care or anyone else does.

    It has been observed that insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. That applies to stupidity as well, as lovesyanks demonstrates.

    It is Our Crying Child who cannot count.

    He cannot spell.

    He cannot read.

    He cannot write.

    He cannot add.

    We must, then, question his ability to execute his basic activities of daily living.

    His pathology is as simple as it is obvious: He sees two Red Sox World Series and none for his team.

    Living through his team, he reached the edge of Pleasure only to watch it snatched away and suffer the ignominy of The Most Monumental Collapse in Sports History [Available on DVD.--Ed.].

    He may even wonder if his team suffers from a “curse”–what else explains swarms of bugs?! Multi-millionaire bats suddenly falling silent.

    Bullies live through oppressing the weaker. Cowards, such as this, try to attach themselves to a bully and pick up the scraps. So he attached himself to the MFY hoping to share in their glory and domination. Hence his use of “we” regarding their championships in the distant past, or at least for him distant past.

    Well, at least he could laugh at the Red Sox, or so he thought.

    Oh but the horror! The horror! He cannot even do that now.

    So his is having a tantrum. As noted, his pathology is simple, as is he.

    So he tries to troll a blog of a pitcher whom he apparently blames for the failures of his team. All of this misrepresents what actually happened over the decade–you know, ten years–but facts are not important to Our Crying Child; his nightmare rules his passions.

    He is an object of pity now.

    Hey, guy, if you are going to have a sockpuppet, try making at least a half-hearted effort to disguise your, ah, “writing style.”

    Bottom line is, having another account in an attempt to lend more credibility to your argument is only going to make you look even more foolish, particularly when it writes like a fool! Why not stop before digging yourself deeper?

    Our Crying Child prevaricates:

    “if [Sic--Ed.] i [Sic--Ed.] wanted to take my time, i [Sic--Ed.] could type a lot better, but who cares. [Sic--Ed.]”

    Gather he does not care that he behaves the fool. Well, every village needs an idiot, so we have him.

    “this [Sic--Ed.] is suppose to be fun, jd [Sic--Ed.] made it ugly.you[Sic--Ed.]. . . .”

    “Let us review the catechism!”

    1. Our Crying Child came on hurling nearly incomprehensible claims and insults.
    2. Said Child received correction of both.
    3. In increasingly deteriorating screed, Our Crying Child throws multiple temper-tantrums.
    4. Child receives a spanking.

    Our Crying Child has only himself to blame for his plight.

    “. . . type alot [Sic--Ed.] like him also, . . .”

    As in, “with proper English, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, vocabulary, not using fists, et cetera.”

    “he [Sic--Ed.] dosen’t [Sic--Ed.] want any yankee [Sic--Ed.] fans, leaving any comments.”

    LIE

    As explained to him in terms that the ape creatures of the Indus have mastered, a number of good MFY fans post.

    He is not one of them.

    Blathers on into a confession of faith, protest of “injur’d merit,” and other elements characteristic of a Drama Queen.

    The Lady doth protest too much, methinks. . . .

    Behave as a child, be disciplined as such. Behave as an adult, earn the respect of adults.
