I'm Sick, and I Have to Pack

I woke up feeling terrible. And I also have to pack up everything I own for the move. this is gonna be a helluva day, folks.

In my absence, check out these hilarious links that Russ sent over last night -- this website called On the DL hosts "a compilation of photographic evidence of ballplayers doing what they do best -- whoring it up and drinking with the ladies." This is great stuff:

On the DL Not So Blind Items Part I
On the DL Not So Blind Items Part II

Here's another great link, as it wasn't a good day for the right side of the aisle yesterday. And as this excited blogger points out, Tom DeLay, Bill Frist, world-class hypocrite Bill Bennett and Karl Rove may all be goin' down hard.

But Bennett's my favorite...for all you Freakonomics fans, Bennett said the following on his radio show yesterday: "[Y]ou could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down" Oh, it's true, you couldn't make shit like that up.

Man, I feel like its been a really long time since I woke up, put on CNN, and heard any good news.
But today was different. No new hurricanes to speak of. No mention of 20 soldiers getting blown up by an IED in Iraq.

Instead, just old fashioned good news: The Republican leadership is is severly wounded and the President's approval rating is in the shitter.

Granted I only had about 7 minutes to watch the news but it was a great 7 minutes.

two things about those awesome pics:

(1) trot nixon is clearly staring at that guy's crotch, not the girl's ass.

(2) someone needs to tell al leiter to rack his cups better. that's the sloppiest beer bong triangle ever. also, i wish he would realize that as a middle reliever you can't stay out til 6am on game day.

Did Kyle Farnsworth just step off the set of a Creed video?

It's nice to see that more than half of the pictures there are of current Red Sox players doing their worst. Millar and Foulke are d-bags and Brandon Arrojo still thinks he's in college. Maybe that's why we can't win a game in the most important week of the season.

i saw those pics of arroyo at the beginning of the season, so it's not like they were from tuesday nite. they were paired up with pics of his wife, asking who's hotter. funny shit.

yeah, foulke complains about the fans a lot but i guarantee he's getting more ass from fans in boston than in oakland.

matty, any word up there in beantown about which player anonymously griped about schilling getting a free pass?

At 12:06 PM, Blogger Matty Mac said...

Honestly, Ethan, I have no idea who said it. It's been hot on the local radio shows and no one has any idea. Personally, I think it was fabricated to perpetuate some sort of fire for Schill. But it created the wrong fire because instead of pitching well, he just opened his fat mouth and started his usual blabbing. If I were to guess who said it, it would either be Damon because he's just a fucking moron, Wakefield because he's a salty vet who never complains and goes out whenever asked to without thinking twice, or it could be someone who isn't with the team right now like Keith Foulkle who has caught nothing but heat for shitting the bed all season.

The person who needs to hook up with someone hotter than his wife is Varitek. You ever seen Mrs. Tek? She's fucking abominable. He's Tek, the guy who every woman in New England would cut off fingers for.

yeah i would've guessed foulke since he's all but demanded a trade in the offseason. is he even with the team right now or "rehabing" somewhere with raffy and sammy and the rest of the AWOL's?

At 1:31 PM, Blogger Matty Mac said...

He is not with the team right now, technically, but that's all up in the air. Last week it was rumored or released that he was shut down for the year, but then Tito Francoma came out and said that's not definite yet. Foulke was great last year, don't get me wrong, but to me he just doesn't fit in here.

And by the way, Ace, I'm as sick as a dog myself. Every fall when the seasons change I get HIV of the sinus and my lungs forget how to do their job. Breathing is not an involuntary muscle movement for me right now. I think it's part black lung, part bird flu, but I can't be too sure. What I am sure of is that it sucks, it hit me like a drunk truck driver and probably won't go away for at least 2 weeks. Super.

"it hit me like a drunk truck driver and probably won't go away for at least 2 weeks."

playoff games that don't end until 12:30am est aren't going to help your cause either. web md says you have 2 choices: sleep it off, or drink it off.

At 2:41 PM, Blogger Matty Mac said...

Web MD can suck my left nut. I work with them on their EDI database and they are morons for the most part. But I think they are right in their prognosis and rehab suggestions.

The playoff games definitely aren't going to help, that is for sure. And, since I work at a bar on Thursday and Friday nights right next to Fenway, sleep isn't going to come easy for at least another two days. Add to the fact that I can't drink while I work is just gonna make me miserable. Can't wait to be hospitalized by Saturday with whooping cough, diphtheria, smallpox, sars and vaginal warts. Damn, I sound like Mulgrew.

cask n flagon? who's on first? boston beer works?

At 3:00 PM, Blogger Matty Mac said...

The Pour House. Not next to Fenway per se, but a three minute walk, right on Boylston across from the Pru. We get tons of Sox traffic before and after games. Should be interesting this weekend. If you're in Boston for a game though, go to the new bar in Fenway called "Game On!", it's a great bar and if you go downstairs, there are about 100 tv's of all sizes and in the bathrooms as well. Nice selection of beers and the waitresses are pretty sweet.

At 3:10 PM, Blogger ethan said...

the pour house! i fucking loved that place in college. are they still serving 1/2 price burgers on saturdays?

At 3:15 PM, Blogger jakezebra said...

The pour house is just a Foggy Goggle knock off. Get a real second job.

At 3:39 PM, Blogger Matty Mac said...

A) Yes, the half price burgers are still there. But the breakfast is by far the best around. I love it. There is something different at half price every night, which is cool.

B) The Pour House has been there far longer than the Foggy Goggle. The Pour House has been around for like 20 years, whereas the Foggy Goggle has been around for like a year or two. It used to be Dad's, which was the place to go if you wanted to get into a fight or fall down some stairs. While I like the Goggle, it's much different than the Pour House and the PH is definitely not a knock off. And, each bar tends to two very different types of people. The Foggy is like the club scene where you go to dance and compare who has the collar on their polo popped higher. The Pour House is just a bar to go to watch games, get food until closing and basically just drink. No dancing and all that jazz.

C) What would define a "real" second job. In fact, what defines a "real" job. Is getting paid to perform some type of work not a "real" job? Should I drive a cab? Maybe play the buckets on the street? Maybe work the graveyard shift at 7-11? You tell me......

Ethan...any time you're in town let me know and we'll drink for free at the Foggy Goggle knock off.

Matty, I'll be in Boston next weekend. Me and Zebra will come by for a drink and you will be tremendously disappointed to meet me, eventually asking us to leave because I suck and Zebra is yelling inappropriate things at really large guys. It'll be great.

"It used to be Dad's, which was the place to go if you wanted to get into a fight or fall down some stairs."

heh. i swear everytime i was in dad's someone DID fall down those basement stairs. usually into a pool of throw up or just onto the supremely sticky floor.

also, does everyone high five the statue when they walk into the pour house, or is that just me?

At 4:04 PM, Blogger Matty Mac said...

Yes, Mulgrew, definitely stop by. I work Tursday and Friday nights. If it's one of those nights, find me or have someone call me if I am not at the door. The beers will be on me. Meaning I'll pay, I prefer to stay dry. If it is Saturday or Sunday, shoot me an email ( and we can meet up and the beers will still be on me. Zebra can yell all he wants, because it will probably be at me. I'll throw everyone else out.

Tons of people high five the statue, but it's better when the drunk girls are strolling out and they take pictures humping the statue, usully with short skirts on which then exposes the thongs.

At 4:58 PM, Blogger Ace Cowboy said...

I leave work for one day and this place turns into the Love Connection.

I'll be back in two and two.

At 5:05 PM, Blogger jakezebra said...

I cannot think of another word less apt to describe me than inappropriate. Nope, scratch that I got one, it's Peurto Rican.
The comparison and job reference were meant as jokes. I thought that calling the pour house a foggy google knockoff would be ridiculous enough to reveal the sarcasm. Maybe I missed on that one.

At 5:21 PM, Blogger Matty Mac said...

Sorry Jake, I didn't pick up on the sarcasm. My bad. I consider myself to be a pretty sarcastic person with the ability to pick it up pretty well, but I failed this time. I do not know Capoeira myself, but I can do it pretty well on Tekken 4 with that chick with the pigtails. My girlfriend is a black belt in some sort of Kung Fu shit and has some sort of degree or certificate in the Bow Staff (read: huge broom stick), so I usually send her to fight my battles for me. She's 6'3", 250 lbs. and ropes cattle for a living. She's cute on the inside.

Also, I think the word "inappropriate" is such a relative term. It's not even in my vocabulary.

Ace is just sad he missed on a such a great conversation.
