Cowboy Up!

HERE AT THE RANT, we recently received a missive from a good friend of ours who closed his letter with the phrase, "GO YANKEES," followed by a full twenty-six exclamation points.

Unfortunately for our good friend, these twenty-six exclamation points UTTERLY FAILED to bring his beloved Yankees a victory in last night's contest against the Boston Red Sox. While we do not wish to begin "talking smack" -- as we fear that Babe Ruth will claw his way out of his grave, shamble onto the pitch, and proceed to throttle Derek Lowe during the seventh-inning stretch on Tuesday -- we would offer some gentle teasing about last night's matchup. Besides, we figure that doing so will merely "cancel out the karma" and lead to a fair and even matchup between these two fine the valiant Red Sox and that other team.

So, old friend, yippie-ki-yay to your Yankees and their $164 million payroll and that oafish lout of a franchise operator you have down there. :-)

Hi! Nice site! Please visit our site als... oh, wait. Nevermind. Thought I was a blog spammer there for a second.

I'm not a fan of either team, but I have to admit, something about the Red Sox playing in the WS just doesn't seem right.

What's next, a Bengals vs. Cardinals SuperBowl?

I'm casting my "root" for the classically-attired Yankees, as I fear what might result from a Red Sox victory.......
