About time for HA to post that I'm not being productive enough in my ER.*

Hey man, you are OK by me. If there is anything the ER market needs it's more porn. Hell, we hang around the house all day, we need a little stimulation.

So thanks, brother.

Re: World Series

Hey guys, this game 2 isn't exactly chopped liver. Go Sox!

BTW, can you figure out a way to label those babes so we can vote for our faves?

Your picture is certainly a better end than having a guy named Pose-dink hit a HR to win the game.* But then, that could never happen*

God in His infinite mercy has looked down upon us, seen our longing and suffering, and sent His gifts to give us succor.

Thanks be to the All Powerful One for the beauty He has created in our world.

Re: World Series

I guess I am alone in thinking baseball is the world's second most tedious spectator sport.

I'd rather sit and watch paint dry. To each his own.

Judging from the other images in this thread, it just depends upon what it's been painted.

I haven't been to a football game in at least 13 years. I can't imagine spending two or three hours on the scene of a sporting contest anymore, not even if it's surfing. And never in front of the TV.

Re: World Series

Spectating usually doesn't much do it for me anymore.

There's more intensity in Post season of baseball and basketball.

I watch with the game on mute, while I surf, listen to my wife's ideas for the trip to Italy, practice my Italian, read Fortune, New Yorker and the Monitor, pet the dog, eat dinner, drink hot chocolate, eat grapes and cheese, nap, do yoga, meditate, go to bathroom, work on the grouting while there. I've never tried watching paint dry, but to each his own I say.

Re: World Series - Contains Callipygian Content

Whithout a doubt, the most entertaining World Series I've seen in a very long time. (Who"da thunk it?).

Imagine there's a few folks in Houston that are going to be late to work this a.m. (hell, it was late West Coast time).

Odds on Red Sox, and White Sox, ending their century long draught on back to back years, off the chart! (Chicago hasn't won yet, but like their chances.)

Ozzie and his boys, so far, have made the Central Div. proud. (Long time reputation for being the weakest div. in Major League ball).

DanTiem: Word from reliable source is that Lohse is history with the Twins. Good move on both their parts. Twins have above average pitching, but they need to score runs.

Anyway, it's been a great series so far, and who knows, (ask the Yankees), it's not over yet.

Jar - Yes, this has been absolutely great! thanks for the inside scoop, I know you're a reliable source. I'll try to keep it quiet. Twins need to shake it up to be competitive with the Sox and Kyle needs a new start with a different pitching coach. I know we'll regret losing him though, like other Twins we didn't keep.

Look how baseball has changed over the years:

The Astros' futility stretched the game to 5 hours, 41 minutes, a full 50 minutes longer than the next-longest game in World Series history, Game 1 between the Yankees and the Mets in 2000. No game has lasted longer in terms of innings.

The only other 14-inning game in World Series history was the second game of the 1916 series. A 21-year-old Boston Red Sox lefty named Babe Ruth worked every inning in a victory over Brooklyn that lasted 2 hours, 32 minutes.

Needless to say, times have changed. This game featured a record 17 pitchers, including Chicago's Game 2 starter, Mark Buehrle, who retired Adam Everett on a pop out to shortstop to end the game at 1:20 a.m. Central time. It was the first career save for Buehrle, who came in after Juan Uribe's two-out error brought the winning run to the plate.

And I gotta say, even if the Sox had lost last night/this morning it still would have been one of the best games ever.....

The Sox have been amazing but I think they're getting a little help - Shoeless Joe and the boys have got a fix in with umpires just to be sure.

Keeping track of pitch-count (got to get him out, his count's over 90 already), was unheard of just going back to the 50"s and 60"s, when a starter was "expected to pitch 9 innings.)

In the early 60's Juan Marichell and Warren Spahn both started and finished a 16 inning game. Marichell's pitch count: 245, Spahn's was
265.

Of course they were well compensated. Marichell made $18,000.00 that year, but had a good job at a restaurant in the off-season.
