And apply it to the Yankees recent play.

They need to know that they haven't yet reached the trees. They need to know that they're still in the "mid-fight turbulence right after Jack asked for another drink, and Charley is in the bathroom flushing heroin" phase.

There's still time before they wake up in the forest with people around them screaming and getting sucked into the turbine of their destroyed plane.

I know the Red Sox don't play the Yankees for another week, but today is a very special day. I want Yankees fans to know that we acknowledge this day as mere turbulence before the coming crash.

30 years ago today the Red Sox won. Today, the Red Sox will win.

Happy Thurman Munson day.

QUOTE
Initial damage occurred during ground runout when the wheel struck a ditch and collapsed. The aircraft then entered a grove of small trees resulting in fractures to the leading edge of the wet wings and fuel leakage. The aircraft then struck the tree stump, spun almost 180 (degrees) and stopped on Greenburg Road. The aircraft was then fire destroyed by the leaking fuel.

QUOTE
Mr. Munson's injuries were diagnosed as a severe contusion (head), contusion (heart) hemorage, and necrosis of the cervical spinal cord. The Summit County Coroner classified cause of death as "asphyxiation due to acute laryngeal edema due to inhalation of superheated air and toxic substances." The Summit County Forensic Laboratory, Akron, OH, the Ohio State University Toxicology Laboratory, Columbus, OH, and the FAA Civil Aero Institute Laboratory, Oklahoma City, OK, conducted the toxicological examinations. Levels of carbon monoxide and cyanide were insignificant. Findings for alcohol and drugs were negative. Due to the free movement of the pilot's seat, after tree stump contact, and lack of shoulder harness restraint it could not be determined what objects in the cockpit inflicted the various injuries. The fastened seat belt which attached to the seat would not have provided any restraint after the seat attach point separated.

Failure to use the available shoulder harness restraints system is deemed a contribution factor in the death of Pilot Munson.

Buckle up and win.

Um, wow. I am generally considered to be a cold and unfeeling dude, but are we psyching ourselves up for an O's game with the memory of the death of a Yankees player?

I'm not sure the emphasis is so much on getting psyched for the Os game. I think it's a little more just straight out reveling in Thurman Munson Day.

But I could be wrong.

And Clay: You survived the deadline. Now start pitching like a keeper, dammit.

August 2nd, 2009 is the 30th anniversary of Thurman Munson's day of unliving. It would be Un-Red Soxian not to celebrate.

It was fun, though frustrating at times. The multiple, often Tek induced, squanders were... maddening. Best part really is the bottom of the 9th. Watching Bard just DESTROY the Orioles was... exhilarating.

Yeah yeah yeah Munson's death (though I totally dig the Dollar image)....meanwhile, in BASEBALL, it was 36 years ago and one day: August 1, 1973, when the Yankees, in a 2-2 tie with the Sox at Fenway, attempt a suicide squeeze bunt in a tandem effort to both win the ballgame as well as to denigrate the soul and spirit of Foulkey Reese.

The noble mountain that was Carlton Fisk stood in front of the plate as Thurmon Munson barreled toward home like a big, fat sack of potatoes that is trying to score a run. Munson, knowing he couldn't beat the ball, prepared for maximum impact (thus foreshadowing his own untimely death 6 years later). Fisk, seeing the ungainly and talented Munson barreling at him, readied his mitt to meet Munson's face (thus foreshadowing what would become the enduring image of the Red Sox' improbable 2004 season).



Fisk holds on. They both flip in the process, end up in a fistfight and ejected form the game.



Sox win it in the ninth, 3-2.

We ain't exactly sweating Baltimore today - win this shit.

He'll be up as long as Drew is hurting, I think. Though I guess they might decide they need another bullpen arm sometime during the Yankee series.

From Rotoworld: The Yankees are shuffling their rotation in advance of the upcoming Red Sox series.
Andy Pettitte takes the mound Tuesday against Toronto while Sergio Mitre moves up to Wednesday, thereby avoiding the Sox all together. Joba Chamberlain will open the series against the Sox on seven days rest as the Yankees are trying to control his innings from hereon out. He's thrown 10 1/3 innings more this season than last season so far.

That's hardinly sporting; nice work.

And my favourite part in all of this is that all Munson had to do in order not to die in a fire was to grow a fucking nutsack. He was learning to fly-- well, crash, anyway-- so he could visit his fucking family in Ohio; no guilt there, right? Still, that's sort of understandable, and it'd be even more rigoddamndiculous if he had hired a pilot to fly his private plane, but the dumb son of a bitch just had to get home, so even though he had landed correctly twice before, he then presumably got so homesick in the middle of trying to land that third time that he fucking ate the altimeter instead. Okay, fine, I'll be fair-- he died of asphyxiation, not injury. So, basically, he fucking choked to death. I love looking back on foreshadowings of the 2004 ALCS...

I have a mate who chortles whenever a Yankees catcher fucks up a routine play-- every time, he cracks up and yells out "Pilot Error!" Funny every time.

My second favourite part: shit-in-a-suit had the fucking gall immediately (well, within a year) to put a price tag on Munson's loss by suing the company that was teaching TM to crash-- the cocksucker sued them for Munson's trade value ($4.5mil, I think). How fucking vile is that? He loses a player, the organization does pretty much everything right (including splitting the series v. Baltimore after dropping the first 2), and then he predictably shits in the gaping heart-cavity of Munson's mourners by implying heavily that the value of Munson's life was exactly equivalent to his trade-value to the felching Yankees.

I drove to the Cape again in the wee hours of this morning, and when I got to the house where I'm staying, I saw a dead bird in the driveway. Not sure what kind-- the neighbour's dog had been after it for a bit, it seems. Still, I take this as a good omen.

Win.

Excited to see VM catch today. Glad that Tito's allowing him to, and with a young pitcher, instead of insisting on Tek's game-calling etc. Bodes well. Hate the nickname V-Mart, though.
