Odd baseball quotes and reactions to quotes

Postby Egregious » Sat Aug 20, 2005 12:52 pm

The other day, I was changing tv channels and stayed on a game just long enough to hear the play-by-play guy say "...and Uribe squeezes out number two..." From the other room, my girlfriend (who could obviously hear the tv) called out " :-P Ew, what the hell are you watching?"

This reminded me of a guy whose wife wouldn't believe him when he told her how Albert Pujols' last name is pronounced. I think the conversation ended with her saying something like "Why didn't he change it if he knew people were going to be calling him that on tv all the time?"

I told a friend of mine the Uribe story and he related a few more stories along the same lines. I'm curious to hear if any of you have heard similar things/had similar experiences.
(looking back at this, I realize it's kind of like a baseball overheardinnewyork.com...)

Theonly thing I can think f was a football instance. The Bears were playing the Bills a few years ago, ad after throwing another completion to a TE, the announcer said "Boy, Drew Bledsoe sure does enjoy those tight ends."

ahhhh

Colemanism's ....
here are a few of his greatest moments..

The morbid ..

"There's a deep fly ball... Winfield goes back, back... his head hits the wall ... it's rolling towards second base."
"Rich Folkers is throwing up in the bullpen."
"Boros is not with the team today because he's attending his daughter's funeral. Oh, wait, it's her wedding."
"I sure hope you're staying alive for the upcoming Dodgers series."
"Gene Richards swings, the ball bounces foul and hits him in the head. No harm done."
"When you lose your hands, you can't play baseball."
"Renko has just about had it. Pretty soon somebody will come out of the dugout with a fork and get him."
"The Phillies beat the Cubs today in a doubleheader. That puts another keg in the Cubs' coffin.".
"From the way Denny's shaking his head, he's either got an injured shoulder or a gnat in his eye."
"Edwards missed getting Stearns at third base by an eyeball."
"The ex-left-hander Dave Roberts will be going for Houston."

What are you watching?
"The first pitch to Tucker Ashford is grounded into left field. No, wait a minute. It's ball one. Low and outside."
"And Kansas City is at Chicago tonight, or is it Chicago at Kansas City? Well, no matter as Kansas City leads in the eighth 4 to 4."
"Larry Lintz steals second standing up. He slid, but he didn't have to."
"Johnny Grubb slides into second with a standup double."
"Turner pulls into second with a sun-blown double."
"There's a shot up the alley. Oh, it's just foul."
"And it's a long drive down the line to centerfield."
"McCovey swings and misses, and its fouled back"


What did he just say?
"On the mound is Randy Jones, the left-hander with the Karl Marx hairdo."
"Sometimes, big trees grow out of acorns. I think I heard that from a squirrel."
"Gonzo leaps like a giraffe and grabs it."
"Hats off to drug abusers everywhere."
"Tony Gwynn, the fat batter behind Finley, is waiting."
"Larry Moffett is 6' 3". Last year he was 6" 6"."
"All the Padres need is a fly ball in the air."
"Hector Torrez, how can you communicate with Enzo Hernandez when he speaks Spanish and you speak Mexican?"
Upon hearing Glenn Beckert's planned retirement: "Well, I hope before Glenn goes, he'll come up here so we can give him a big hug and a kiss, because that's the kind of guy he is."
"Sunday is Senior Citizens' Day. And if you want to become a senior citizen, just call the Padre ticket office."
"Zane Smith is a guy who can shut you out as well as look at you."
..
..

"I like to use big words so people will think I know what I'm talking about."


Thanks Jerry ;-D ;-D
