TICKETS!!! BASEBALL!!! RADIOS!!! This is what has been disturbing me as of late. Let's start with the radios. So if it isn't an Ipod..........what do you call it??????? So you're not cool if you don't have something with an I on it. GET REAL! Zunes are apparently sort of cool now, but the one to get is the Creative Zen!! Oh yes!! How yummy, nothing better!!! WAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY BETTER!!! Than the stuffy Ipod! You don't have to have an Apple, which is annoying already, it doesn't take 10,000 years to convert everything & Hallelujah!! It records & has a little radio inside! AWWWW!!! Now that's beyond cool. SO what is the problem??????? People are still subjecting themselves to this yuky Ipod! Why do I hate it, simple, because it doesn't have a radio & it doesn't record! So who needs it? There is no point. Done!
Tickets. Wow, Stub Hub, Ticket Assmaster & who else is selling, Ebay???? Wow, where is Tickettron when you need them? So it's not bad enough that you get a service charge if you can order the dumb things online [like if this were gas], plus tax & whatever other extra crap charges they decide to stick on there [$1,000 convenience bail, in place of artists getting arrested b4, during or after the show], but now we have idiots like StubHub charging how ever much they feel like it, way over face value & legally???? Do these people happen to own gas????? It's the most ridiculous, ludicrous, company in the history of entertainment. By the All-Star Game these jerks still couldn't get rid of their All-Star seats & there was a nice little empty chunk of empty seats in Yankee Stadium which was shone once & never revealed again for fear that someone would have guessed it wasn't SOLD OUT!!!
So, of course they have hold of concerts & Broadway shows as well & somehow everyone seems to be fine with this. SO when did world get rich all of a sudden? I could just see the credit card debts in the mail. 'Well, I just had to buy that 8,000 dollar left-handed upper deck seat to the All-Star Game & just took it out of my kid's tuition for it'. WOW!! IDIOTS!!![By the way, I can only use this world over & over so as not to say anything worse!]
My mind has been on baseball. I loved it for years! But then I began to hate it, especially after the strike in 1994 which we didn't have a World Series! [I started to hate it long b4 that but that did it]! I love & miss the classic players. Real players, b4 the age of steroids, not these money-grubbing scum we have now. Jerks who are just in it for the money & not to play . It's not the same it'll never be the same. Yet slowly I'm wandering back into it. Maybe because the Yankees seem to be hot again? Maybe because they're actually some good new kids playing for the sake of playing & not stupidity. Maybe because they have a new fighting manager? [kind of!] What happened to the good fights? I used to love when the managers would lose it over a silly call & go NUTS!! [yeah, so I'm violent, so what!] That went out the window with the old manager. He was too nice, now he's gone. There is some action now, but not enough. Hopefully it'll get better as will Old Timer's Day, which is the only reason to go. Yes, I'm a NYker. Yes I loved the Yankees, the real Yankees.
Bobby Murcer passed. He was NO. 2 & will always be No. 2. NOT Jeter! I WANT JETER TO GIVE UP HIS NUMBER TO THE REAL YANKEE!! Bobby needs to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame with his Number 2!! He was actually the nicest Yankee & he played for the sake of playing. A great announcer & just a doll! Until these new Yankees learn what the history of being a Yankee is & not mess around for the bucks, none of these Yankees deserve the numbers they carry on their backs.
So here's to the real Yankees & to the new kids who actually have a chance of saving their legacy which for years has been in the toilet!!:
the all-time classic boys [I know theres more but these are my special Yanks!]:
