    I was at Fenway Park last night and heard some of the following during the latest installment of the Yankee-Red Sox rivalry from the Fenway Faithful:

    "Hey Mariano, learn how to install a pool!"
    (Mariano Rivera, a pitcher for New York, lost his nephew and his brother-in-law who were electrocuted in his pool in Panama a few days ago.)
    "Hey Miguel, you're a fucking Al Qaeda terrorist!"
    (Miguel Cairo plays second base for the Yankees. He's hispanic.)
    "Bernie, I raped your wife!"
    (Bernie Williams is a devout Christian who obviously deserved it.)

    Baseball is not war. I really hope it was just the beer and the adrenaline speaking, but who the hell gets off saying things like this? Especially considering life outside the ballpark.

    I would kindly tell them to leave the park, go outside and play a game of hide and go fuck themselves.

    :-/

    Piss-Poor taste.

    Absolutely moronic! Seems that sportsmanship is dead (for the fans, as well as the athletes!)

    BTW....the Sox are my second favorite team! I wish them well tonight!

    (go soak that Mr. P!!!!! I like professional sports for the entertainment value, but not the behavior!)

    You think that's harsh?


    Try going to a Philedelphia Flyers game. Some of the best fans in sports period... and I hate the Flyers ;)

    Those guys are ruthless. I remember back in the day they used to throw batteries on the ice at players.

    You think that shit talk is bad? Whew... that was weak. I remember being at an L.A. Kings game and Theoron Fleury (which Im sure no one here knows) is a recovering alcoholic ...*ahem*.. sorry "recovering" alcoholic, and people were yelling over the glass at him saying "Maybe you need a drink, Theo, you fucken loser!" "Get off the ice you fucken lush", etc..

    That was just something I recalled right now..

    Dilloduck put it best..

    Let me know how the soup turns out.

    Leave the $$ at home when ya go
    to Vegas. I spent 5 days at Caesars
    on business and did a lot of watching. One day reality hit me in the face...The armored trucks! They always took money out of the place, they never brought it in. Gotta tell ya somethin, even a slow Southern boy like me understands that.:D

    Take care.

    I think it is abhorrent and intolerable behavior!

    Nothing I would want to take my boy out to see, that's for sure! It's a shame that a few idiots ruin it for many who appreciate proper and civilized behavior.

    What's wrong with a little chatter from 3rd base...."hmmmmbatter, battttttterrrrr......swing....." instead of the epithets being slung about, now?

    I'm sure it will be fine.....the soup, that is.....

    I always take a couple of C notes with to spend, with the realization that there are not going to be any presents coming home.

    They did not build Las Vegas on winners!
