  1. Leave it to Joel to call Mariano an ass. How do you not like the guy? Explain? I predict he pitches like a motherfcuker next season. Your O's better be scared.
  2. Here we go Giants, here we go. Here we go Giants, here we go. I feel justified in chanting that, since the Giants have been my favorite NL team since childhood. I'm looking for the Giants to come out smoking in the top of the first in game 3.
  3. First of all, congrats to the Tigers. During the season, statistically the Yankees were by far the better team (check the team statistics on Yahoo sports), but the Tigers are playing well and the Yankees stunk up the joint. With the exception of maybe A-Rod, I don't see how anybody can say they dislike or hate any member of the Yankees. Going back to the mid-90's, O'Neil, Martinez, Bernie WIlliams, Mariano, Jeter and the current group are all likable guys. On the other hand Reggie, Nettles and even Munson had abrasive personalities. Going back to the 60's, the Giants are my favorite NL team. I hope they can beat the Cards, If not, I'll be rooting for the Tigers.
  4. Updating my prediction......Starting tonight, the Yankees go on an 8 game win streak....
  5. Here is my prediction - The Yankees are winning the World Series. The bats are coming alive tonight and will remain alive through the rest of the post season. Verlander is going down.
  6. Here is the proof that you know squat about baseball, the Yankees or Jeter.
  7. The Jets are in first place. They have the best division record.
  8. Well then why didn't you say it smart aleck. I don't agree. They were without Mariano almost the entire season and survived THAT and a host of other injuries.
  9. Takes one to know one. Why are they dirt bags? (This should be good.) Go ahead Joel, I'm waiting for your answer.
  10. The problem with the Yankees is NOT losing Jeter or Mariano. The problem is Cano, A-Rod, Granderson and Swisher. What does it tell you when 40 year old Raul Ibanez is stealing the spotlight from those guys. The only reason they beat the O's is because the O's team batting average during the division series was WORSE than the Yankees. Since 2001 the Yankees post season performance has been dismal. Can't get any clutch hits, etc, etc, etc. They won the World Series in 2009 and guess what? A-Rod was hitting that post season.
  11. Well, I said I own two "official" bootlegs, meaning I own them on LP. I own a fair amount of other shows(Tull and others) on cassette or CD that friends/acquaintances have recorded for me.
  12. IMHO, I would say those are all worthy bootlegs, in the sense they've captured a classic era of Tull. Let's face it, they are bootlegs from the early 70's. The sound quality is what it is. I'm not a big collector of bootlegs. I own two "official" bootlegs. Tull from 1972 ( a show from April in Virginia) and Springsteen from 1976. I have some other bootleg material that various people have put on cassette for me. Sounds like you are not a Tull fan anymore. What do you want to do with the bootlegs? You could probably sell them pretty easily.
  13. What do you expect from a group of fans who use the tomahawk chop as their rallying cry. I would be embarrassed to be around that. Three errors. They don't deserve to win.
  14. We all know at this stage of the game it's a crap shoot. Whichever team/player gets hot will drive the outcomes. Of course you can't discount defensive miscues. Nothing would surprise me about the Yankees, although they seem to be playing well as of late. My NL teams are the 1. Giants and 2. Nationals.
  15. Here we go Yankees, here we go. Here we go Yankees, here we go. If I had the energy, I would post a picture of my ticket stub from game six of the 1996 World Series. A 3-2 win over Atlanta to win the World Series. I know a ton of Oriole fans and they are all urinating in their pants. Now they have to fly down to Texas and in one game extinguish their overachieving season. If you think about it, they really didn't want to tie the Yankees for first. It would have just meant playing an extra game. Another thing to think about. Any team that wins so many 1 run games could have just as easily lost those games. That's the law of averages. GO YANKEES!!!!
  16. Not me, I'm too much of a people person. In fact, I usually buy 4-8 tickets for any event I want to attend and no matter who the artist, have no trouble finding friends to go with me. In turn, my friends call me often and say "hey you wanna to see ______". Work would be the only thing preventing me from saying "yes". I've seen loads of artists I never would have considering seeing. Of course there are the before and after concert rituals that we always follow, dinner, drinks, chit chat, etc.
  17. Damn, I wish I lived in LA. Laserium has started presenting their laser light shows. This one on September 2, features the music of The Beatles and Pink Floyd. The music of our heroes Led Zeppelin has also been featured. I used to go to these shows in the 70's. http://www.laserium.com/schedules/Rooftop_Summer/ROOFTOP_SUMMER.html
  18. Good topic, but this is almost impossible. Here are four of my favs.... Paul - Mull of Kintyre Ringo - Back Off Boogaloo George - Dark Horse John - You Are Here from Mind Games.
  19. 70's would be Jethro Tull/Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band/The Dictators. (Hard not to include John Lennon, George Harrison, Leon Russell or Badfinger.) My interest in music waned quite a bit after 1979 or so and I never really recovered. I took somewhat of a hiatus from live shows during the 80's, except for some occasional hard-core punk shows on Sunday afternoons at CBGB's in NYC. I'll have trouble with the 80's, but R.E.M. would be one. What the hell, I'll include 1980's Jethro Tull.
  20. I've been listening to a lot XM satellite Studio 54 on channel 15. They play all disco music. Included are interviews with people who were part of the Studio 54 scene in NYC during the hey day of the bar. I quite like disco guitar playing, it's very repetitious, but I love that chicka-chicka sound.
  21. Incidentally, regarding all your condescending remarks about residents of the state of North Carolina. There are more hip/happening places in North Carolina than in Rochester, NY. That's a fact. As has been your mode of operation for three plus years, you NEVER fully address the countless criticisms against you. I'll repeat it again, you've been banned from here countless times. There is a reason for that.
  22. You go talk to Sam and kiss his ass like you've been doing for the last 3 years. You're like a 4th grader who has to tattle to the teacher.
  23. Look who all of a sudden is the expert on chat room behavior. Leave Electrophile alone. How dare you critique her, when all you do is talk trash to everybody(read your first post in this thread). You've been booted off of here a dozen time AND you are close alley of another person who has been booted off of here countless times. I stopped coming here because of people like you. Now you are still up to your BS and unfortunately the moderators allow you to misbehave. It's okay, I now frequent chat boards that TALK ABOUT MUSIC. When is the last time you posted a music related post?
