Saturday Open Thread

INDIANS YANKEES

Swarms of Canadian Soldiers invaded Jacobs Field last night bringing the insect invasion to almost Biblical proportions for about two innings near the end of the game. You could see pitchers and players and umps being doused in bug spray (which supposedly does nothing to repel the little bugs, and actually attracts them more than anything else because of the wetness). Asked about the midges, Casey Blake responded, “What do you mean what did they look like? They were like small pterodactyls.”

The tiny gnat-like bugs usually hang out over Lake Erie, but with the unseasonably warm weather last night they migrated a few blocks inward to the ballpark. No word yet on if the Tribe are going to bring them to NY just to screw with Joba Chamberlain’s head. —Vince

    I missed the game last night – were the Yankees particularly bothered by the bugs because of their lighter-colored uniforms attracting ’em, or was the unpleasantness pretty universal?

  • Stuby | October 6, 2007 at 10:20 am |

    I knew most of the Red Sox wore baggy uniforms, but I think they have all gone up a size or two for the playoffs. What a bunch of Rag-Bags (Army expression).

    They seemed to be attracted to Joba Chamberlain specifically. :(

    Speaking of which, has anyone else noticed that Joba and Babe Ruth look like the same person?

    I think the real story of the night was Fausto Carmona’s jersey tag sticking out all game. No photo unfortunately, but if you were watching, I think Bob Brenly said something in the sixth about it being out since at least the second inning.

  • Griff | October 6, 2007 at 11:22 am |

    if you want to know the truth, Vince can atest to this. you need to get dried off to stop them. there isn’t as much water in the outfield grass, so they weren’t bugged as much. but with the watering of the dirt and sweat, there weere all over there. it’s ok.

    Did anyone notice the guy sitting behind the Yankees dugout that seemingly switched caps every inning? He was in the picture during close-ups of left-handed batters. I counted at least 6 different colored caps from this guy including hot pink, yellow, green, dark blue, royal blue, and red. Maybe more because I may have missed some because i was watching some Reebok…I mean NHL games.

    He’s been a fixture since Jacobs Field opened in the mid 90’s. I guess it’s superstition, but dont think any local “journalist” has sought him out to find out his routine.

    I can attest to this. Dampness and water attracts them. That’s why they were all over Joba’s neck. The bug spray just made it worse. They acknowledged this on the broadcast, and it’s true, they would have been better off bringing out towels to dry off then adding more liquid to the situation.

    i noticed the hat-switcher too, and wondered if i was the only one. the first hat i noticed was a neon green and i figured that when they changed, the network guys were having fun, that the color resembled the green-screen that they use to change the ads behind home plate on, and were fooling around.

    Auburn, playing at home against Vanderbilt, is wearing its usual road white jerseys and pants, but it is wearing plain white helments with gray face masks. Vanderbilt looks tacky in gold jerseys and solid black pants.

  • My Name is Not Earl | October 6, 2007 at 12:59 pm |

    The Auburn unis are supposed to honor the 1957 team which was named national champion in that year’s AP poll. The design of the jerseys and pants hasn’t changed since then, but I’m sure the ’57 team didn’t have that “Auburn” wordmark or names on the backs.

    b) The K-State unis look good, although the NCAA pennant looks gi-norm-ous. Scale it down or get rid of it. (KU doesn’t have it.)

    I am watching the Penguins – Ducks game on HDNET, and each player has a purple sticker on the back of their helmets. Even the goalies for both teams. Anyone know why?[/quote]

    It’s a Hockey Fights Cancer sticker for October only. All players on all teams will wear it this month.

    [quote comment=”153635″]Anyone know why the “C” painted in the end zone of the ND-UCLA game is blue with a yellow drop shadow while the rest of the letters are yellow with a blue drop shadow?[/quote]

    I’d assume that it has to do with the first to 100 championships sticker that all UCLA team have been wearing. but i have no idea

    why is the “st” in “Boston” filled in while the “Bo-on” is only outlined in white?

    France ended up with FIFA Mix’N’Match Systemâ„¢-created Scottish look. Wonder if they’ll pick the whites should they win the toss for the semi against England.

    Or if they get to the final and face Sith Efrika, Argentina or Fiji , three sides who rarely ever wear their away kit.

    It’ll probably end up England/SA though.

    I don’t know why the NBA would change such a recognized brand as the Boston Celtics for an exhibition game in an overseas market. I can see adding something to commemorate holding the game in Europe (a patch or something), but changing their entire look seems like it defeats the purpose of what they are doing.

    OK, I admit it: I’ve finally taken the plunge and started accepting porn ads. Starting next week, in fact, I will only accept porn ads (except maybe for a NAMBLA ad). That’s why I’m moving back the publishing time from 9am to 10:15am next week — so I can, um, “personally review” each ad’s content…

    Maybe it was the Celtics idea, their way of giving a very subtle nod to the country that is graciously hosting them? Maybe they did it just to throw all of the Uni Watchers for a loop? Maybe they really like the Scuderia Ferrari?

    The NBA has added the national colors to unis for overseas exhibition games the last few years.

    Rockies closer Manny Corpas had the hologram sticker on his underbrim tonight.

    Sad news in uni-land, as the Rockies win out in the black vests, so we’ll surely be seeing them Thursday in Phoenix. Gotta love lucky momentum laundry.

    Wisconsin Coach Bret Bielema has always worn a red windbreaker as a superstition since his first season with the Badgers in 2004 as the Defensive Coordinator. It is a winning superstition.
