Wish I’d Thought Of That One

Monday, May 7th, 2007, 4:35 pm

I can’t say that I follow baseball all that closely (living in Pittsburgh will do that to you) and I find the media’s obsessive coverage of the Red Sox-Yankee rivalry pathetic–it’s the battle between the Bad Guys and the Worse Guys.

Still, the Yankees signing Roger Clemens elicited a fantastic one-liner from one of Bill Simmons’ readers. In an act of stupendous self-regard Clemens yesterday announced to the crowd in the middle of the game that he was signing with the moribund Yanks. Which inspired this line from a John F. in Kansas:

“This is historic … who ever heard of a rat jumping ON a sinking ship?”

Magnificent.

    3When this happens in 30 years there will be no more black Jesus freaks. Attrition will have eliminated this population.
    This of course is a good sign for those who will be betting on the Second Coming of Christ.
    Since the gods don’t respect Christianity I wouldnÂ’t be surprised if they have the Second Coming lead the people to the center of a star.
