Hoping for intelligence and common sense? That sure is hoping for a lot out of New Jersey.Some will excuse the behavior as kids just being kids, out to have a loutish, drunken good time. Spewing obscenities at the visiting team is just part of the fun.
But you'd hope our Jersey kids would be smart enough to make an exception for the service academies, especially the weekend before the anniversary of Sept. 11, their generation's own Day of Infamy. You'd hope they'd be sensitive enough to realize that some of those Midshipmen may soon be among the young American men and women fighting and bleeding and dying in Iraq and Afghanistan. Young Americans, the same age as those safe in the stands watching a football game with their faces and bodies painted red.
You know this makes zero sense right? That was a really poor attempt at being witty. Let me guess. First comes the flood. Then because it rained so much there is mud. How clever! Then comes the terrible drought after all that rain... because that's what causes a drought right, excess rain? Then the soaked ground and green plants from all that rain suddenly catch fire. I know it's a common saying for people who can't afford to live here but you should really think it through.They have four seasons out there, too--fire, flood, mud and drought.

That's the first time I've ever heard California mocked for the weather.
lath, I didn't even read your reply because you've already proven to be a tool not worthy of my time. If you made this thread to try and start an argument with me for whatever reason, you're out of luck.
Go ahead and continue to think you're some kind of authority on baseball, second-guess the manager with your 20/20 hindsight and jump off the roof every time the Dodgers lose a game.
This is the sound of me ignoring you from now on.
Jeremy Roenick: I liked Patrick's quote, (that) he would have stopped me. I wanted to know where he was in Game 3. He was probably getting his jock out of the rafters of the United Center.
Patrick Roy: I can't really hear what Jeremy says, because I've got my two Stanley Cup rings plugging my ears.
