Warning: As Cory and I again got out of the hospital after 2am this morning (and I was back on the road for work by 5:30), I will be a tad “cranky old man”. Don’t mess with me today…

Obama’s flub in the MASN booth
The president says he was a “Southside kid” yet can’t name any players while he was growing up. I was a Bosox kid. Here’s how easy this is: Carl Yastrzemski, Rico Petrocelli, George ‘Boomer’ Scott, Mike Andrews, Luis Aparicio, Reggie Smith, Jim Lonborg, Ray Culp, Tony Conigliaro. How about some opposing players I saw at Fenway: Frank and Brooks Robinson, Thurmon Munson, Boog Powell, Tony Olivo, Jim Palmer, Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew, Mark Belanger, Rollie Fingers, Catfish Hunter, Joe Rudi, Casey Cox… not so hard

I saw him and the (pre-helmet) Big, Bad Bruins at the Garden, Mr. President, along with Phil Esposito, Gerry Cheevers, Johnny Bucyk, Pie McKenzie, Fred Stanfield, Ken Hodge, Derek Sanderson, Eddie Johnston, Coach Sinden, Gary Doak… see how easy this is (when it really happened)

Are CO2 Regulations via Executive Order Next?
Probably
Justice Dept. Included Non-Terrorists on List Supporting Obama’s Claim That Hundreds of Terrorists Have Been Convicted in Civilian Court
And they called George W. Bush dishonest

Makes sense, thus taxpaying smokers should be exempted from sub duty

Any explanations from Kucinich?

    Sorry. I wasn’t even a bad joke until the late 50s.

  • SlapShot

    I once met an old school bruin from the 50′s. He owned a hockey equipment store close to Hershey, PA, and he had pictures and newspaper clippings from his career framed and hung on the walls
    Remember Kenny Smith ?????

  • MissJean

    Give my regards to Cory. I hope he didn’t tear anything too badly. I’m trying to decide whether to have surgery on my shoulder or just rely on daily exercises to keep it in place.

    Hope you got some rest yourself, Bob. ;)

  • The Machine

    Obama is chock full of the Freudian Slips.

    “Kaminsky Park”

    ahhhhhhhhh…..MAN…I HATE when I mess up my links…

    sorry about that one..

    “Warning: As Cory and I again got out of the hospital after 2am this morning (and I was back on the road for work by 5:30), I will be a tad “cranky old man”. Don’t mess with me today…”

    no worries, I wouldn’t mess with ya even on a GOOD day, period. Can’t find a justifiable to mess with a guy who’s FAR more experienced than I am. period.
    Hope Cory will do well. Definitely feel for him.

    “So we won’t hurt feelings and say ‘Islamic radicalism’ anymore. Just what would you call bombings, beheadings, honor killings…?”

    my guess is that the left will call it something PC like “an islamic wartime act”..

    Volcker: Taxes likely to rise eventually to tame deficit

    once again, because we TOTALLY need to SPEND our way out of debt. Isn’t that what we ALL do, spend money when we don’t have on a CREDIT CARD when we don’t HAVE money? damn…I have a decent idea of what a chunk of the system is like, and I appreciate the power of a dollar etc, I just think Obama somehow thinks people are MADE of money and that the treasury is full of Monopoly play money…good lord

    “Obama’s “read my lips” moment. Remember what those words did to Bush 41″

    I do. I REMEMBER that clip as a kid. Personally, I think Obama’s “read my lips” moment is the constant “let me be clear..”

    “The media would love Steele out so the GOP will (again) be called ‘racist’”

    good call, that sounds right, sadly, as yet another dumbass DemoKKKrat congressman has compared the TEA Party to the Klan…damn it

    “Tell that to today’s arrogant punks. Wait… they don’t read”

    and those of us in today’s youth who DO understand the concept of older wisdom, humbly accept the word as truth and seek to understand it more in-depth….or at least I do, all things considered

    “Watch internships go away, and thank this administration”

    let’s not forget all the damn government jobs being created as well

    “The president says he was a “Southside kid” yet can’t name any players while he was growing up. I was a Bosox kid.

    well done! Unfortunately I don’t know any of those players, but my baseball hat is off to you.
    For Obama, not knowing players and all, growing up in Indonesia and traveling to Pakistan in the 80s will do that to a guy

    California Democrat proposes mandatory gun registration

    another one to vote out

    “Because Fox doesn’t call the day after”

    or constantly kiss Obama’s ass, insulting the opposition with sexual slurs

    “Rev. Michael Pfleger didn’t play the race card; he’s one of the dealers”

    he indeed is scum however. NO church leader should spew venom like he does, loudly I might add, and call themselves a “church leader”…ask Jeremiah Wright

    “I saw him and the (pre-helmet) Big, Bad Bruins at the Garden, Mr. President, along with Phil Esposito, Gerry Cheevers, Johnny Bucyk, Pie McKenzie, Fred Stanfield, Ken Hodge, Derek Sanderson, Eddie Johnston, Coach Sinden, Gary Doak… see how easy this is (when it really happened)”

    very cool. Gotta say, that’s a hell of a jump. good stuff

    “This also means the liberal/socialist fringe is being visibly isolated (which they really don’t like)”

    hence the need for a boogeyman

  • IT Nerd

    Yup. Along Eddie Murray, Sandy Alomar jr., Dennis Martinez, Omar Vizquel, Charles Nagy, Albert (Joey) Belle. BTW saw Belle’s first game when he was called up in ’89 against Nolan Ryan and the Texas Rangers. On the mound for the Tribe was Greg Swindell.

    See – real fans DO know the players.

  • http://black-and-right.com Bob

    With Manny and Jim Thome.

  • IT Nerd

    I tell ya, its tough supporting the Tribe. First time I ever saw them advance to the playoffs was in the movie Major League.

    But they did beat Boston in the 95 and 98 playoffs.

  • http://black-and-right.com Bob

    Saw him on TV, not in person. I don’t remember the names of too many Indian players back in the day. We always whupped their butts… :-P

  • IT Nerd

    Hey Bob – since I’m an Indians fan I have to ask: Did you ever see Oscar Gamble and his mega-fro back in the 70′s?

  • Mommy RN

    Give our love to Cory. I hope he feels better. Bob, try to get some rest. Those ERs can be a pain in the arse to try to get any rest in. (I know, I work nights in one. I feel so badly for the families.)

  • thekingtut

    And once again BHO looked the American people in the eyes and flatly stated: fuck you!

  • Jan

    Make that cranky, but relieved father and sweet dreams to you tonight.

    “The media would love Steele out so the GOP will (again) be called ‘racist’”

    Having Steele in never changed the fact that Republicans were called racists anyway.

  • http://black-and-right.com Bob

    Cory’s shoulder dislocated yesterday afternoon and we were at the ER and OR from around 5pm til’ 2am this morning. He’s home sleeping off the medication.

  • Trishmac

    Hey Bob- what were you two doing at the hospital this AM????? Hope all is well with BOTH of you!

  • Palmetto

    “Any explanations from Kucinich?”

    Mr. Kucinich could not be reached due to his undergoing treatment for post-tramatic syndrome caused by being dangled by his ankles from the door of Air Force One until he agreed to vote yes to healthcare.

  • IT Nerd

    Not all Terrorism? Tell that to Nick Berg.
