Happy Birthday, Bobby Valentine!
You know your're the man, we know you're the Man. Happy Birthday to one bad motherf***.
RE: regular season homeplate walk-off victory celebrations
I just watched the Red Sox complete their inevitable come-from-behind victory against the sad sack Orioles, a team so bad, Jim Duquette has a parking space. It's as predictible as a Pro-Wrestling match. Is it me or are the players taking things a little far in their walkoff celebrations? The Red Sox won on an error by the pitcher covering first, against the Orioles, in May. But if you didn't know better, you'd think they just cured throat cancer.
No, it's not me, it's them.
I mean, cmon, you think Ty Cobb bounced up and down like a doofy bastard when his team happened to win a game in the bottom of the ninth? No, he probably spit at someone's mother (if it was mother's day) and then went home to kick his dog. It all seems strangely undignified. Plus, if you celebrate like that over nothing, what do you do when it counts, like in the playoffs? Hire a stripper and get it catered? I'm going over to ask the expert at Mets Walkoffs right now. Maybe he can shed some light on this phenomenon.
