Twitter Updates for 2008-10-20

  • Earplugs didn't prevent much. #redsox #
  • Hate when home plate umps make a strike call on a close checked swing. Can't we get the 2nd opinion? #redsox #
  • Found my enemy for the night: overly-demonstrative older woman, front row, just up the 3rd base line (over RH batter's shoulder) #redsox #
  • McCain's ads make me feel like I missed an episode. Seem to have been edited with a blender. #
  • @ericwyman She's right above the New Era sign with a Petula Clark bob, between two old guys. #
  • Why would Varitek need to tell the catching coach what he's going to do? #redsox #
  • @ericwyman good to hear. Make up for lost torrent time. #
  • Carl Crawford comes out to MIA? 1. Sounds anti-Amerikun to me. 2. Good luck signing a guy who's theme music says he just wants your money. #
  • @savetherobot Heart of Dorkness #
  • Need to know what it says on Papi's non-standard, non-team issued shirt. Something dirty, no doubt. #redsox #
  • Buck Martinez's Can't-catch-up-to-a-sliding-runner theory sounded like it was a new Law of Thermodynamics. #
  • Cialis, if your boner pills are so great, why do they require two soaking tubs? #
  • @mikesusz I'd have thought the roof, Field Turf and different colored walls would have been a tip off. And the empty lounge chairs. #
  • Dunno, how big are 2 out hits? There are 0 outs right now. #redsox #
  • @ericwyman looked like a Very Special Fan. #
  • TBS, you claim Frank Caliendo makes a big impression, I'd like to prove it. Have him meet me on top of the Sears Tower. #
  • "Hi, this is Matt Garza for Mucinex." #
  • Anyone else catching a romantic subtext to Ron & Buck's discussion of pitchers & catchers? #redsox #
  • @paulkelley the caught stealing? 3-2 and 1 out is a hit and run situation. Sucks they get the momentum from it. #
  • If that was an "easy" 1-2-3 inning, I don't want to see a hard one. Too much solid contact. #
  • @paulkelley yeah, it was definitely a risky move, but Tito seems to send the runner in that situation about 80% of the time. Sucked. #
  • PINCH HIT #redsox #
  • Dog's snoring soundly. Don't know how she does it. Nerves of steel. #redsox #
  • @ericwyman Thank you. Get that kid to an ENT, stat. #garzasnot #
  • Someone in the front row order something to make those weird-ass munchkin waitresses go away #redsox #
  • Now is that Animal or Hawk wearing the sweatshirt in the Tampa dugout? #redsox #
  • @ericwyman How quick does Price go in our draft next year? #
  • Ah well, great season, fun playoffs and Tampa's a damn good team. Could do without the fanbase. #redsox #
  • What is that song? Where can I pay to have it not played? #redsox #
  • @CinemaSuicide Uf, thanks for giving me someone to block. #
  • Please tell the dog I don't negotiate with terrorists. #
  • Good post on the value of defense and the price of wins in MLB: http://is.gd/4qPK #
  • @adarowski @SoxyLady I was sorry to hear it too, but I think it's only "out of character" for the person he's portrayed as in the media. #

Twitter Updates for 2008-10-19

  • If I'd been friends w/Shel Silverstein, I'd have always RSVP'd by saying, "Tell 'em I'm coming, and Shel's coming with me." #
  • @garyryan Well, it's strange you could acquire the "Big Game" label before playing in one. #
  • Dinner at Agave (Portsmouth) tonight; disappointment. Everything Poco's does, but worse, more expensive w/ bad service kicker. #
  • In re Shel Silverstein, for people like @suchatreat, http://tinyurl.com/6jpwt6 #
  • @adarowski if you're listening to Girl Talk, you're going to want the Wikipedia pages to save the brain scratching. #
  • Tampa Bay, you'll never be a respectable franchise until you strip the season tickets from Leather Lungs. #
  • My Facebook says "69 friends" I'll pass, but the 13 year old in me thinks it's funny. As is "the 13 year old in me". Meta-illegal-joke #
  • Buck Martinez just summed up the playoff experience: "When you're throwing 90mph fastballs, it's time to go #2." #
  • If you bought an off-brand, bullshit team jersey, don't bring it to a nationally televised game. #
  • Cue Kevin Millah: "Don't let us win one." #
  • You know TBS is a serious network when Saeger's jackets never run out of batteries. #
  • Want Youk's beard to produce birds like Family Guy #redsox #
  • I know we're spoiled, but if you're crying about a non-elimination loss by your 10 year-old team, gain perspective. #redsox #
  • Finds it ironic Adele is backed by skinny chicks on SNL #
  • @garyryan "And that was the second time I got crabs." #
  • @paulkelley They should get the Tampa groundscrew to spraypaint that stupid starburst on a carpet somewhere in a dugout. #
  • 1st time watching SNL in years. Complete disappointment except for Adele. #

  • Upside to #redsox potentially being eliminated in 5: no more Chip Caray in anyone's life. #
  • tbshotcorner.com - shitty baseball site or your vaccination information headquarters? #
  • Well, last one out shut off the lights. #redsox #
  • Do not thou, when thou art a fan, boo a Papi. Boo a Varitek, boo a Daisuke, but never an Ortiz #redsox #
  • WHAT! #redsox #
  • It would appear at two points last night, the #redsox had a 0% chance of winning: http://is.gd/4fgR #
  • @laurelatoreilly in re: .NET collective intelligence, you can't dm people that don't follow you. #
  • Think you can unfollow me without consequences? Dream on: http://useqwitter.com/ #
  • This week's Zero Punctuation: A+ - http://is.gd/47Tn #
  • Picked up some new (to me) stuff at the comic store: Sentry (http://www.the-isb.com/?p=705) and the new series of Criminal. #
  • @erdanton cue up Billy Bragg's "Levi Stubbs' Tears" in memoriam. http://is.gd/4gDY #

  • Stewing in my own gravy after nhupa-- loft at Pixel is still too hot. Brings back some memories. #
  • Someone find this plumber and kill him. Not class warfare, just sick of the arguing from specific to general. #
  • So McCain's Things He Wishes Hadn't Been Said were things about him, not by his supporters? Weird. #
  • He's spending unprecented dollars and more than you because people sent him more money. Wonder why. #
  • Ironically, people on the autistic scale wouldn't be swayed by such cheap emotionalism. #
  • Also: Voter Registration Fraud != Vote Fraud #
  • I have to admit I'm interested in McCain's "nuclear pants" concept. #
  • I know Obama's up by a lot in the polls, but it'd be nice if he jumped some of this dumb shit. #
  • I heard the first thing you see when you get off the plane in foreign countries is a clear explanation of smart econ policy. #
  • Do you have any goddamn ideas or do you just know what Senator Obama wants/ doesn't want? #
  • Pretty sure Obama didn't oppose Stephen Breyer, who was appointed in 1994. By Clinton. #
  • Not only does McCain have a record, he has a bunch of warped 78s. #
  • @jlbruno Yeah, that's your marginal tax rate. What you want to keep an eye on is your effective tax rate. http://is.gd/4c0r #
  • Not sure I'm feeling Sylar as Spock. http://is.gd/4a2S #
  • Free SEO advice to restaurants: don't PDF your menu. It doesn't look that great anyway. #
  • @CinemaSuicide When I need to focus and drown out distractions, I always fall back on Kid 606 or Shitmat. #
  • "Joe the unlicensed, not a plumber" just didn't have the same ring. http://is.gd/4clI #
  • @suchatreat "bald-faced". #
  • @serenemargarita only applies if you think "incentivize" is a word and not some bs marketing-speak. #
  • @serenemargarita I don't disagree, but I feel your priority in that case is cutting the person's tongue out, not correcting grammar. #

  • If fruit flies didn't exist, DNA scientists would have to invent them. And then we'd have to kill the scientists for making something evil. #
  • @paulkelley I love The Mayor as much as the next guy, but Casey has 14 XBHs in 199 at bats this year, all of them doubles. #
  • Can we get Carlos Pena back? Or at least have his Mass state residence revoked? #redsox #
  • Uf. #redsox #
  • Got out of the inning with only 3 runs scored. Improving! #redsox #
  • It's getting to the point where the FrankTV ads are the least painful part. #redsox No, no it's not. #
  • @paulkelley Even hurt, Ortiz was 25% better than Casey this year. A small sample of playoff ABs doesn't change that. #
  • Buck's even got Ron Darling saying "David ORtiz". Weird. #
  • I can take the losing, it's the complete lack of response that's killing me. #redsox Also, Manny Delcarmen's stuff > his results. #
  • Listening to a terrific concert by Blind Pilot - http://tinyurl.com/3zay22 #
  • Remind me to never use thickbox ever again. #
  • @boonyboy Hoo. I wouldn't say I'm okay; can't you see the grimace? #
  • Client refuses to grasp all these interface issues he sees are a combo of his narrow design + his old person font size settings in IE6. #
  • @ericwyman sounded like he was going to miss it. Don't worry baby, I'll be there. #
  • Waiting for an iTunes 8 update that unscrews Airtunes issues. Oh, and makes the progress bar work again. Genius. #
  • @jeremydurham OCaml. Your move. #
  • There is a guy on the AV Club who goes by "Black Bolt" all his comments say "...". http://is.gd/48vQ #

  • Obama ads in Burnout Paradise (http://is.gd/43gG). Makes me nostalgic for the WTF feeling I had seeing real ads in Jet Moto for PS1. #
  • Firefox 3.1 offers geolocation services: http://is.gd/3Pp3 #

  • If you're scoring at home, Longoria hit that off his front foot (with a little bit of hip). Jesus. #redsox #
  • Bruins wearing some strange uni. Thought I'd mention it since no one is watching. Who's checking on the Revs? #
  • They credit Lognoria with a 3B? Love to see someone a single away from the cycle. #redsox #
  • Cut back all the flowers this weekend. Considering selling the neighborhood kids the dead salvia. #

  • @adarowski yeah, but unfortunately K/BB is an indicator of success. And he ain't got it. But he does have that butt wiggle. #
  • @baseballpro red sox #
  • @ericwyman seriously, Ron Darling gives the impression he hasn't been to a game since dashing my dreams in the late 80s. #
  • In what sport did James Shields earn the nickname "Big Game"? 'Cause it ain't baseball. #
  • If you read nothing else about the Rays' manager, read http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26984974/wid/11/ #
  • @adarowski not after you jinxed it. More likely a 400 pitch, 20 hit shutout. He had a shot at a Bill Lee perfect game after 1. #
  • Dear Harmonix, I want half the money back for "Sir Psycho Sexy", since you took half the words out. #
  • Rays' stadium should be limited to music that was created after team. Britney, Miley Cyrus, Holy Fuck. You gotta mix it up. #
  • I'm sure it's a coincidence Chip Caray uses "fist" as a verb so much. #
  • TBS viewers, you've been Saeger Bombed. #
  • Hoo, traffic must be pretty bad in Tampa #alcs #

  • House still reeks of tomato soup from a crockpot recipe on Monday. Thinking of getting a skunk. #
  • Worst part of Mike Lowell's injury is it opens the door for me seeing an extra-inning Mike Timlin appearance. Hopefully past his bedtime. #
  • @jeckman I'm just here to ban spammers. Makes me feel like one of the girls from 'Clueless'. More than usual. #
  • Free Mountain Goats EP at http://satanicmessiah.com/ (pay by guilt, choose your donation level, etc.) #
  • @leahcreates you can try http://labs.unitinteractive.com/unitpngfix.php - might fix your issue. #
  • @zapnap Hail Satan. #
  • WTF? No more Cooz! http://is.gd/3Qc2 (keep your mind out of the gutter) #
  • Mountain Goats -> Motorhead. Still disappointed w/ @suchatreat for flunking out on 'Ace of Spaces' in Rockband. #
  • discovering stuff in the Hs in iTunes: Helio Sequence, Hieroglyphics. #
