“It’s nice to see a chubby guy as the hero,” Spence says.

“If you accept that there can be anything heroic in professional sports,” says Admin.

“How about boxing?” says Spence. “Ever read Hemingway’s Fifty Grand?”

“How can you ask me that?” says Admin. “I was an English major, back when Hemingway was unavoidable, as opposed to unfindable in college, like now.”

Hey! Admin went to college? I never knew that. We’ve got a college downtown in the Valley. I love college kids! The way they like having non-stop fun! Was Admin like that? Hard to imagine.

“Notice the way Yankee Stadium empties out as soon as they fall behind?” says Spence.

“It’s easy to cheer for winners,” Admin says. “But habitually identifying with losers can’t be good either.”

They both look at me. “Chet has winner written all over him.”

Spence and Admin: They’re really not such bad guys, not even Admin. I saw him smile a few days ago, can’t remember at what.

    So above noticed what below noticed about NYC fans leaving!

    Chet does have winner written all over him.

    Though Chet you might tell Admin that he was talking and not Spence about the English major business!

    I've never read "Fifty Grand" but Hemingway "unavoidable" is extremely funny. He is not "unfindable" in college now (and Melanie is correct, that should be "says Admin").

    Chet: You ARE a hero.

    I take it the Yankees lost last night? Sorry Mollypop. What happens next?

    5:14 am on October 20th, 2010

    Ahem!… Melanie, it was actually Spence talking about being an English Major, not Admin…snort!…I guess if you only read every other word it might seem the other way around…heh!

    MLB!…Here is an excerpt from a news article on the MLB website!….snort!snort!

    “…there was a full section of Texas fans in the second deck above the third-base dugout chanting, "Let's go, Rangers!"

    The rest of Yankee Stadium was almost empty. There was nobody to stop the chant, nobody to drown them out, no more Yankees fans to offer any resistance. The Rangers are one win away from going to the World Series for the first time in club history and the Yankees are going quietly in the cool October night.”

    We think Melanie is right. It was Admin. talking about college. Go re-read it Rio, and give Melanie a big slurpy Pug kiss.

    Bee, You are worse than we are about baseball. We at least turned to the game occasionally to check the score!

    B&M: I don't have to watch any baseball game….I get play-by-play here on the blog.

    Rio: It is supposed to be Admin who is saying he was in college. Reread the post. Thank you for the info. So last night's game was the third game and they need the best of five. I think it would be much more exciting if the Yankees win tonight and then you'd have to watch the fifth game. (I have that right don't I?)

    5:44 am on October 20th, 2010

    I concur with Rio's WWWooooooooo HHHoooooooo. And watching all the loser fans stampeding to the exits was great. Did anyone else see the Yankee bullpen where "fan" had thrown bottles and other trash at them? We might get aggravated with our guys, but we would NEVER throw things at them. gasp. No southern manners up north? Mom and I can't even breathe when we think of the possiblity of the WS in Arlington…pant pant pant..we might just go over and hug the bricks while no one is there. Really. That is as close as I will ever get to a WS. They never have dog night when I would like to be there. hmph

    Spence and admin…thanks for noticing the superbalty (heh) of our chunky hero…Yankers walked the guy before him, 'cause everyone knows catchers can't hit!!! His catching is even more amazing considering that he has a middle to contend with when he squats…!!!

    Mollypop: How is your (mom's) foot today? What did the doctor say?

  14. Riö - The Evil
    5:57 am on October 20th, 2010

    Stover!… It will be way better if the Rangers finish them off today…snort!…Then Cliff Lee will not have to pitch till the World Series starts….sneeze!… The idea of punching down the Yankees 3 times in a row is much more invigorating…heh! …and a huge confidence builder going into the final series with the Giants…heh! …(Lets Go Giants!)

  15. Mollypop
    6:01 am on October 20th, 2010

    B. – Mom's foot seems better. The doctor said it was healing, just slowly. Mom is not sure she believes him, but then she has learned over the years to be very careful of these same docs who can also do so much good. He prescribed a strong antibiotic cream with bandaging and elevation. This should work in a week or she goes back.

    I can't blame the doctor since Mom did wait way too long to go see him. She kept saying it was getting better, until yesterday when it all swelled up big-time.

  16. Riö - The Evil
    6:16 am on October 20th, 2010

    MinPin!… I can’t believe that a true fan would throw trash at those over-paid millionaires in Yankees uniforms….heh! … I just pray that Cliff Lee does not sign with them next year….sigh.

    Woo WOo WOO from here in Cehvy Chase too. Great that today's game is in the afternoon, so the celebrations can start early. The Yankees are really demoralized, and the Rangers have come to play. It just doesn't get any better than this. A Rangers/Giants World Series would be great to boot. I don't think either team was expected to go that far this year; it's always great when the underdogs (although not sure where that phrase comes from; I may be underfoot at times but never under anything else) come through. Woo Woo Wookie

  18. Mollypop
    6:37 am on October 20th, 2010

    It's true those Rangers are on fire. Darn. If the Yankees lose today, like Desi used to say to Lucy, "You got some 'splainin to do."

  19. B.Stover
    6:37 am on October 20th, 2010

    Mollypop: I'm glad the foot is better but you should force her to go back to the doctor if it doesn't clear up by next week. No arguments!

    Wookie: The term underdog is from dog fighting. The dog who lost was called the underdog. Here's an article.

    Thanks Stover for the info, although it is pretty grim to read (note proper word usage there). Brings back shades of Michael Vick. My dad did pick up the recently published book called The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick's Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption by Jim Gorant, although he hasn't had a chance to read it yet. (Dan's book is at the top of the queue once he finishes A Perfect Crime by you-know-who). Wookie

    7:23 am on October 20th, 2010

    Goodness there's a lot of Woo woo wooing and howling today. Isn't it wonderful!

    There is another way to look at underdog that doesn't have to do with the "sport" of dog fighting . . .

    When a dog meets another dog with more "mojo" (always wanted to use that word) the dog with less mojo exposes it's belly by lying on the ground on it's back. Doesn't matter if it's big or small, male or female. Has to do with biology and big dog attitude.

    I do believe, NOW, that the Yankees are psyched out to the max.

    I agree, Macy, southern fans would never behave that way, nor would Rockies fans.

    Chet is my hero. Dogs need a canine hero and then sports heroes. We love it that a chubby guy did so well in the game last night. From what I read, the Yankees first baseman won't be back this season. I'm like Rio, I hate it when anyone gets hurt like that.

  24. Riö - The Evil
    7:34 am on October 20th, 2010

    Wookie!….What part of The Perfect Crime are you reading right now?….snort!

    SiberH!… That means the first basemen will miss one game…snort!…Their season ends this afternoon!….WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

  25. Siber-H
    7:39 am on October 20th, 2010

    I'm thinking the same way, Rio. Then, a WS in Texas. How cool is that!

    Molly, I'm glad your mom's foot is better and I hope it continues to improve. If it doesn't, take her to a vet.

    Two games today, Rangers at 1 PM, Giants at 5 PM (our time). Both teams were not expected to get this far. Go Rangers! Go Giants! The Rangers are one win from their first trip to the World Series.! The Giants need to win today. Especially since my boy will be there yelling until he can't talk above a whisper.

  27. Riö - The Evil

    Dynamics are going to change on the blog if the Rangers and the Giants both make it to the WS! We will, of course, stay true to our Texas team. Some of the rest of y'all will be changing sides. But don't get too cocky yet.. The force is strong on the dark side. The evil empire is still capable of coming back.

    We're going for a walk and then Mom is going to swim. She is still planning to watch the game. She will be like the fans that abandon their losing team, but won't be throwing anything.

    8:12 am on October 20th, 2010

    Molly!…That’s so very noble of you…snicker!….Brother!

    Unfair!….My friend just sent me an email that said her boss is taking her and her co-workers out to lunch at Chiles!….snort!…. She said she has been daydreaming about their fajitas all morning and now unexpectedly she gets to go there!…grump!…What about me?? … Where’s my fajitas?….Where’s my lunch?…. crap!

    Rio, quickly email your friend back and tell her to bring you some fajitas home. (doggy bags) She won't be able to eat it all anyway.

    My family expects the Yankees to lose today. They're our favorite team in baseball, but we're more hockey fans. My Dad and Boy even go to some of the Bill's football games and, of course, the Bills always lose.

    Once Molly gets over the Yankees, she'll be into hockey in a heartbeat.

    Maybe Dawson and C. Harris will be hockey fans with us.

    Rio. We just have about 25 pages left, so we are just about at the climax (hopefuly we can finish it today). The twists and turns have just been amazing. Clearly the tighest written PA novel that I have read so far. Wookie

    9:34 am on October 20th, 2010

    SiberH!… How did you know she would bring a doggie bag back with her….heh!… She’s a wimp and couldn’t eat all her lunch….grunt! …It says here in this email that she made a new friend at lunch. He’s new in the dept. and he hates the Yankees too!…snort!snort!

  37. Riö - The Evil
    9:35 am on October 20th, 2010

  38. Riö - The Evil
    10:03 am on October 20th, 2010

    Hooo!… I just got another email from you-know-who!…heh!…She made some signs that say, “Let’s Go Rangers”, “Kick Yankee Butt!!”, “Go Rangers Wooooo!” and stuck them in unnoticeable places in a Yankee fans office…snort!… She sits right across from him and is waiting for him to come back from lunch….grunt!…One of the signs is plastered to the back of his jacket which is hanging on his chair – he won’t see that one…heh!heh!

  39. Mollypop
    10:11 am on October 20th, 2010

    Siber-H – I passed your concerns on to Mom about the pool water. She said not to worry because the pool is spring-fed and treated only with salt.

    Mom says she cannot not go for walks, she cannot not ski, and she cannot not swim. Huh? That's a lot of 'cannot nots' for me to follow.

    whispering (Plus she's stubborn.)

    Oh Rio – Your friend has a touch of evil just like you. The old "Kick Me" sign strategy.

    I just ordered more Cahors but I'm trying another kind this time.

  44. Riö - The Evil
    10:54 am on October 20th, 2010

    Heh!….I guess the guy just came back from lunch and has yet to notice any of the signs….snort!… He walked right by the one on his trash can…snicker!…This is the one she thought he would see right off the bat….gawf!

  45. Riö - The Evil
    11:02 am on October 20th, 2010

    Email!…. Says here my friend is having a seriously hard time keeping a straight face….snort!… He has walked by the trash can twice now….snicker!

  46. Sam
    11:04 am on October 20th, 2010

    B., how funny you mentioned Cahors. I just came on to give my Dad's report.

    He bought 3 different ones locally. Pigmentum 2005 he hated! Then the 2 bottles of Chateau Haute-Serre 2002 had different reviews. The first one he thought was one of the best wines he's ever had – like your review. Then he had the second one weeks later and said it was okay and then the Chateau Coustarelle 2005 which was just okay too.

    He doesn't understand why the two same bottles would taste so different.

  47. Riö - The Evil
    11:04 am on October 20th, 2010

    Snort!….Three times now!….OMG! He turned towards the wall where another sign is and didn’t see it!….hooooowheeee!…grunt!

    Rio, I think it's funnier that the guy doesn't notice the signs because at some point he will.

  50. B.Stover
    11:12 am on October 20th, 2010

    Sam: It is strange that the same wine with the same vintage tasted different. The one I ordered this time is Clos Triguedina Cahors 2005 through winebuys.com. I'll let you know.

    Hey, Macy, we read you. Who is C.C. Sabathia? Is that someone we should know?

    Barb's brother, the wine nut, had never heard of Cohours. Maybe cause he usually doesn't drink French wines?

    Alone?…. Alright! The Rangers have made it out of the 7th inning with out giving up any runs!….sneeze!…So now in the 8th they need to grab hold of some very hot bats and belt out five or more runs!….grunt!… No way around it now guys! ….sniff!

    Oh!…And he still hasn't seen the one note right on his wall that says, "Kick Yankee Butt!!!"…heh!

    Well!… Maybe the Rangers just want to win the Pennant in front of all their fans in Texas!…Woooooo!….That’s what we here think anyways!…snort!

    OK We are going back to Texas. That sounds a whole lot better than saying we lost the game. Texas Here We Come!

    This was nice for so many reasons, but I got to actually see them win is great. Mom isn't even dragging me off to bed.

  96. Barb & Maggie
    3:02 pm on October 20th, 2010

    Sorry about the loss! They will do it next time for sure.

  97. Riö - The Evil
    3:02 pm on October 20th, 2010

    Now!….We are watching the Giants vs Phillies game!…Not with as much passion, but we would love to see the Giants and Rangers in the World Series this year!…snort!

  98. Riö - The Evil

    Fog!…Wow, we can see the air at the Giants stadium…hoooweee!…snuff!

  99. Kirby T. Penworthy
    3:16 pm on October 20th, 2010

    Hey everybody! Mom just got home from handbell practice, so I finally got her to turn on the computer for me! I'm sorry about the Rangers game, but like Macy said, it's always better to win in front of the hometown fans, so they can really celebrate. What would have happened if they had won today's game, a few cheers from the loyal Ranger fans tucked way in the upper deck? Not that that's anything to sneeze at, but much better to do it in front of a whole stadium full!

    Rio: Mom had to laugh at your friend's shenanigans! When she worked at the newspaper in Tennessee, there was another Iowa graduate there, so the two of them played havoc with two other Big Ten grads. One had her own office, so when Iowa beat Ohio State, they wove black and gold (Iowa colors) streamers across her whole doorway — covered every inch. She had to break through all the streamers before she could get into the office. The Illinois fan just had a desk on the newsroom floor, so Mom and her friend wrapped the whole desk in black and gold streamers, and wrapped them around the phone, too. So when he wanted to answer the phone he had to cut through all the steamers. Of course, first he had to tear his way through streamers to get the desk drawer open to get the scissors out!

    We are rooting for the Giants, also. Mollie's boy is there and we hope he gets to see them win.

  101. Mollie (a black pood
    3:21 pm on October 20th, 2010

    He almost did not get there. No place to park to take the Ferry to the AT&T Park. They finally parked, but in a no parking place. Hopefully their car will be there when they get back. I think he said there were 900 Giants fans on the Ferryboat. Here's hoping Giants win!

  102. Mollie (a black pood
    3:31 pm on October 20th, 2010

    Hey, I hope I counted right, I think Siber-H was 100. What a near miss for me…

  103. Barb & Maggie
    3:37 pm on October 20th, 2010

    Mollie, We think you are right with your count, should be

    Siber-H.

    Wookie, Barb really liked The Perfect Crime. Probably the best PA she has read so far.

    She just started The Help today, and so far is really liking it. First novel, but can't remember the author's name right now.

  104. Riö - The Evil
    3:42 pm on October 20th, 2010

    Kirby!…I’ve heard stories of her prankstership…heh!…The one that sticks in my mind tonight is when she quite young and working with a bunch of Geologists who studied dirt under a microscope…heh!…There was this big room with large tables for their huge sheets of paper they laid out with the layers of earth they found…grunt!…Any way, there was this older Geologist named Dee (great tennis player, wow!) and he always worked on the table near the door and farthest away from the One Wall Phone in the room…heh!…So one day my friend taped down the phones receiver button and then called the Room Number….grunt!…Dee would methodically take off his reading glasses and walk to the far away phone… sniff!…When he picked up the phone just kept ringing and he would get really pissed off .but he never knew who did this to him ‘Often’ …wheeze!… She was awful! …snicker!…Dee always beat her badly at tennis and this was her only way to retaliate…cough!

  108. Riö - The Evil
    3:50 pm on October 20th, 2010

  109. Siber-H

  128. Riö - The Evil
    5:51 pm on October 20th, 2010

    Mollie!…Lincecum, Posey and Black Beard will do nicely if you are offering!…heh!snort!…Of course none of my existing players will have to leave in this offer ….snicker!

  130. Siber-H
    5:55 pm on October 20th, 2010

    They would, indeed, do nicely. See, Rio, I told you she doesn't sound like Georgia.

  131. Mollie (a black pood
    5:55 pm on October 20th, 2010

    Or you could get the one with the Lincecum hair on it or a big black beard, no, I think the Panda Hat is the one for you.

    5:57 pm on October 20th, 2010

  152. Siber-H
    10:06 pm on October 20th, 2010

    I agree, Rio. I don’t think about any other sports until the baseball season is completely over. Some years I can muster up a little interest in football, some years I can’t. Hockey might be intresting. They do get to bashing one another over the head, and swinging at one another, don’t they?

  153. dawson
    10:20 pm on October 20th, 2010

    Mollypop: I live in Canada so I Have to watch hockey. Like it or not. Redwings are my team (born in Detroit). 2nd choice is the Minnesota Wild and 3rd is Vancouver. The man in this house is a die-hard Chicago Blackhawks fan and the only reason I know anything about hockey.

  154. Siber-H
    10:21 pm on October 20th, 2010

    New England Patriots…that is funny because I was thinking the same thing about rooting for them. Their name has a nice sounding flair to it.

    I will be rooting for the football team that signed Michael Vick to end up at the bottom of the heap.

  155. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:32 pm on October 20th, 2010

    Dawson!….My friend works with a young guy who planned his vacation around the Minnesota Wild…heh!…He just got back from a trip where he went to Finland and Sweden. He and about 100 other fans watched as the Wild trained and played games there….snort!…He actually got to have lunch with some of the Wild team members…heh!…He had great time…snuff!…My friend says he reminds her of the downcast donkey who hangs with Pooh Bear and Piglet but this week he has been happy… heh!… And he even sort of laughed at her Yankee Sign antics…snort!!
