A friend of mine–a Red Sox fan friend–just texted me from the Sox-Angels game in Anaheim. How did he score tickets to ALDS Game 1, you might ask yourself? Good question.

Well, it turns out that he walked up to the ticket window….

And paid them 40 bucks….

Two hours before game time.

Bite me.

  1. The more stories about crappy Angels fans, the better.

    Not trying to make any excuses or anything, but is there a way to get to Angel Stadium without driving?

  3. yep…that’s apparently how tickets work in the rest of the baseball universe, you know, in places where no one really cares about baseball.
    you know who else sucks? those TBS announcers. um, 1st inning, Lackey gets Ellsbury on, and all of a sudden “we might see a home run derby tonight!” uhhh…huh?? also, who the hell dresses them, clowns? really, Turner Broadcasting? an orange suit that looks like it came from a bin at Goodwill is the best you could do for that guy?

    I could go on and on…completely ignoring the contributions of Ellsbury at the end of the game, ragging on Lowrie’s error for most of the game, the asshattery of the “manny who?” comment…why can’t Don and the RemDawg cover playoff games for us pleeease? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I know listening to McCarver and Buck makes those guys look like Bill James, but seriously.

    Public transportation in SoCal? No way, Paul.

    OMG Lyndsay, I agree so much that I just had to write “OMG.”

    I second everything you just said and will have more a bit later today in post form.

  6. Coley Ward says:

    Craig Sager always wears terrible suits. He usually does NBA sideline reporting. Kevin Garnett likes to make fun of him.


  7. TBS, has graced Cubs/Dodgers with Dick Stockton. He has lost it, he mangles names and occasionally even forgets where he is. They pair him up with Ron Darling, sorry don’t care to listen to a former Met and Tony Gwynn, who as a broadcaster was a great hitter. Is it asking too much for at least one guy that might be familiar with at least one of the two teams? I was forced to listen to the radio which also sucks because it is so far ahead of the HD feed.

  8. seriously, they need to keep Sager away from Lester – that radiated suit might bring his cancer out of remission.
