Clue-by-Four: Ramblings of a Jock Dork

Godwin’s law: Tim McCarver Needs A Cup of STFU

Posted in Clue x Fours and Other Tools of Sanity, Jock Dork: It's Who I Am by Wingnut on July 19, 2010

I know there are those of you out there who aren’t Yankees fans [Though I really don’t understand why]. I know some of you even go so far as to hate the Yankees [You do realize that you really love the things you hate, right?]. But I think it’s safe to say that no matter what you may think about the 27-time World Champion Bronx Bombers, that none of you would violate Godwin’s Law1 to do it right?

Apparently, Fox broadcaster and blatant Yankees hater Tim McCarver needs an education in inappropriate analogy. Anyone who has watched Fox when the NY is playing knows the announcers unprofessionally and openly root against the Yankees [Major network broadcasters are supposed to call games without bias]. But McCarver took his hatred to new asshat levels on Saturday during the game against the Tampa Bay Rays.2

The Dog Days of Summer (Baseball Week at ClueXFour): Shenanigans All-Star Break

Posted in Jock Dork: It's Who I Am by Wingnut on July 19, 2010

I still think Mickey looks better in Yankees pinstripes

The second-half of the baseball season is upon us and, for the next few posts, there will be a baseball reltated theme, including:

All-Star Weekend Proves to Be Just Another Cheeseburger

Things I Could/May Have Learned fron George Steinbrenner

and a few other things.

Not to mention @turnjacsons post: http://turnjacson.wordpress.com/2010/07/13/swinging-for-the-fences%e2%80%a6/ . He really brings the chedder in this post [A devastating fastball for the lingo deficient among you).

In the meantime, inspired by the many posts of http://www.missdisgrace.com/ , I have decided to include some photo highlights of All-Star Shenanigans with the girls. (more…)

“The Boss” Will Be Missed (with more links)

Posted in Jock Dork: It's Who I Am by Wingnut on July 13, 2010

(All-Star Week festivities delayed on account of rain)

“The Boss” will be missed by Yankees fans and Major League Baseball. His contributions to the game over the past 30+ years have reshaped the scope and reach of the game.  And all of this just days after losing Bob Shepphard, voice of the Yankees for so many, many years.

I cannot articulate what has already been said, so I will share some links with you of some people who have shared their thoughts:

Sean Napfel, Baltimore Radio Host

iYankees

William Nack, ESPN writer

Wallace Matthews, ESPN New York

Buster Olney, ESPN Baseball Analyst discusses Steinbrenner as greatest owner of all-time in baseball (Video)

John Kruk and Karl Ravach, ESPN Baseball Analysts (video)

Jerry Jones, Cowboys Owner (video)

Dick Vitale about Steinbrenner’s gererosity

Paul O’Neill, one of the key components to the dynasty of the late 90’s

Even an entry from Dickipedia

In Closing: For a man who said he would stick to ship building and stay out of day-to-day operations of the New York Yankees, you proved to be an asshole and a liar. Thank you.

Sincerely,

ClueXFour
