Weekend Questions

Hey kids, it's been a long time comin'

  • CAN the Red Sox survive with a piecemeal rotation this weekend against the other Sox? I hope David Pauley can throw harder than his mom Jane.

  • WILL the Marlins keep things interesting(er) in the NL East and stay in the race? Three games against the Mets with Volstad, Nolasco, and Olsen can make a world of difference if they win 'em.

  • MIGHT the Dodgers actually score a coupla runs this weekend? Their batting average with RISP has actually been negative this past week, but they're still just a few games behind weekend opponent Arizona.

  • DID you know that there was a picture of a baby in a shrimp outfit on the Internets and you were just holding it back from us? Shame on you if you did.

  • CAN the Blue Jays catch the Yankees this weekend? If so, I have to take a picture of myself wearing a Blue Jays hat saying "Adam Lind possesses superior skills."

That's it for us this week. We're jetting early, so if you haven't already left the office, go Ask Dr. Toast some stuff. It's Labor Day weekend in America but it's abso-fucking-lutely nothing in Canada, so we've entrusted Lloyd the Barber with the keys to the Walkoffwalkmobile for Saturday and Sunday. Email him with your tips and praise.

As for Monday? Walkoff Walk goes dark in honor of union folks everywhere. Have a cold one on me, Norma Rae.

Bill Conlin is filling up his bathtub with cocktail sauce.

And that has nothing to do with the shrimp baby, Conlin just likes how ketchup and horseradish keeps his skin nice and shriveled.

Holy hell it's prawn baby. Are we that far off from giant squid baby?

It is indeed LaboUr day in Canadia, but that won't keep me from driving the walkoffwalkmobile into a bunch of rich people in the Hamptons.

Long ago and prior to being defiled by Garry Trudeau, Jane Pauley was quite the piece.

I'm going where there is no television or internets for the weekend. When I return I expect the Tribe to have a 13 game win streak going.

TALK TO ME WHEN THEY GET TO TWENTY, CHIEF.

Did I miss the pic of Rob in a Sox hat?

Labour Day has been celebrated on the first Monday in September in Canada since the 1880s

Well whaddya know. Good on you, Lloyd.

I just found my daughters' Halloween costume. Thanks for the picture of shrimp baby.

That pic is coming next week, Farthammer. My Red Sox hat access is proving to be more difficult than previously expected.

I hope it's one of those cool PINK redsox hats!

wait....you guys dont work anyways...so Monday really isnt out of the ordinary

now the cubs' record this year...THAT is out of the ordinary

-self-jinxing

put that baby on a treadmill

2-0 Phillies on a Kosuke error.

Stuff I've learned from this post and comments:

1.) Canada has a Labour Day.
2.) Gary Trudeau nailed Jane Pauley
3.) Cocktail Sauce is just horseradish and ketchup. (Seriously!?)
4.) You are supposed to make the bread into toast BEFORE adding the butter. D'oh.

@PaleHos: Is 4.) that what CTC meant by a toast point?

Grunter is a Cubs fan? All is explained.

Update: Carlos Marmol is the tits.

Crew win. All is good.

The Giants sure are making the Reds look good if that's possible.

Funniest yahoo comment I have ever read, re: Zito's modeling debut:

A gamer always has the warrior swagger, whether in a baseball uniform or in True Religion's lowrise 'Billy Rainbow Big T' bootcut with back flap pockets with Rainbow embroidery.

I THOUGHT I MADE THE FUNNIEST COMMENTS YOU'VE EVER READ.

You are way too funny for Yahoo commenting.

We should schedule a local WoW beer-fest.
I propose my watering hole: the Little Shamrock.

I been there before. By Keyzar? Next time I go to the city, I will let you know. Or sooner if Rob and CTC make a post out of it, like Farthammer and Phillas debate whose team is shittier while getting wasted. It would definitely drive the hit-count up, since my fiance would read it.

Bring her along. We'll get pictures of me drunkenly hitting on her and Rob and CTC can post them. That should drive up the hit count.

HOLY CHRIST DOES DAN MEYER SUCK...BUT WAIT, I THOUGHT HE WAS A HOT PROSPECT WHO WILL BE AWESOME MR BEANE

Done and done re: fiance donation.

I am drubnk as fak

@Rob: How odd you can't find a Sox hat in Jersey. I'm happy to get one to you from Boston--your choice: Tan, Green, and old fashioned Blue (with the Nomar #5 on the brim!) You just let me know and I'll get to the post office straight away.

Oakland only gave up 20 hits. Sweet.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is on; I haven't seen that in years.
