Now thats a f-f-f-freak hand

Well its fine and dandy that Vic made it through the game without getting assaulted either by the opposing team or his own, by making up nicknames that may or may not have been approved beforehand. Whats Marty Moon gonna do for an encore now that nobodys listening to him anymore?

See you there? How do they know Vic doesnt have some postgame work to do adding up stats etc, or heck, doing homework? Maybe its Friday night anyway. A little camaraderie with the PA announcer doesnt hurt any, but I KNOW I never saw a PA announcer who fraternized with the team.

Ever see a hand so big it could unscrew the ceiling lights all by itself? Now you have.

Nice that they already ordered food before Vic strolled in. I’m sure he was busy doing what I said in the last paragraph. I imagine they’ll come up with some more nicknames for other players for the next game. The fly in the ointment is coming though, and Rubin is doing a good job of disguising it so far. But so far this plot is rather painless.

Finally, my video will feature a guy we lost last night, Tommy Lasorda, former manager of the Dodgers who ate at every restaurant in Chicago, and then some. Probably hadnt paid for a meal there in who knows how long, what with all the people he knew and who he was; a true baseball ambassador who was the first manager I really cheered for when his Dodgers played the Yankees in the World Series. I still remember this bullshit call by the umps involving Reggie Jackson. I was as mad as Tommy.


  1. Nice of the kid in P2 to offer Vic a ride. He just assumes he has a ride. That’s why they are already showered, in street clothes, and have their meals on the table by the time Vic, who didn’t have to shower and change, gets there. Because he had to walk there. No wonder he said “s-s-sure”. He wasn’t thrilled about walking out into the winter night alone.

    Excellent piece on Tommy Lasorda, Rob. The man was good for the game. I will miss him dearly.

  3. Why is a PA announcer acting like the color guy on radio or tv? Am I missing something, or do we have the makings of a Bobby Howry 2 on our hands?
