I watch sports because I like athletic excellence, grace (or catastrophic failure) under pressure, rooting for the hometown team and of course, to root against the opposition. So it is fun to have athletes that do not have enough brains to keep their mouths shut. Keep it up Luke Scott and Brandon Jacobs, there is nothing like rooting against you and reveling in your mediocrity.

Luke Scott, Kyle Farnsworth, Joe Maddon, cowbells, stupid cat DJ, and noted rapist Josh Lueke.

Rays are going to be a fun team to root against this year.

This only makes me want to go to more Sox games in Baltimore going forward.

It's interesting that he's picking on Boston fans when NY and I assume Philly during inter-league games also completely take over Camden.

I know. But the venue that he lamented Sox fans taking over is Baltimore. Presumably, if it annoyed him, it annoyed his Baltimore teammates. Here's to more of that.

And between that horrible stadium, the annoying cowbells and where that stadium is, I have no desire to travel down to Tampa just so I can heckle this asswipe.

My favorite part was this:

'Go home Boston! Pack your bags. See you next year.


Let him enjoy this. After all, he has only had 3 plate appearances in the postseason, in the NLDS with the 2005 Houston Astros.

"I rolled down the window and I'm like, 'Ah, hah, sucks doesn't it, when someone laughs or makes fun of you when things aren't going your way.'"


And I'm like, so Luke Scott essentially took the first opportunity he had to laugh or make fun of other people when things didn't go their way.

Given his apparent distaste for vulgarity, I'm sure this is precisely how he worded it, too. Boy I'd hate to be the Sox fan outside Camden Yards that night who caught such a vicious broadside.

Luke Scott's an asshole.


He's also a birther:

"[Obama] was not born here," Scott asserted to Answer Man in the session's last segment. "That's my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go — within 10 minutes — to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, 'See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.' The man has dodged everything. He dodges questions, he doesn't answer anything."

Baltimore was probably the most overrun of all of the away stadiums with Red Sox fans. If I were an Oriole, that would bug me too. On top of that, the Red Sox have had the O's number for quite a few years.

I find it hard to believe that Yankee fans are in any way less vulgar or obnoxious. I think I'd feel more or less the same way he does if I were in his shoes, especially if what he says about how he or his teammates were treated by RS fans is true.

All of that said, I don't give half a rats ass what Luke Scott thinks. Any fall from grace is accompanied by rejoicing of the previously oppressed.

I made it to the Yards for the first time last August. It was the day after the hurricane blew through, and the Yankees were in town. We bought tickets on the spur of the moment (there were lots of seats available at every price level, on the Sunday before Labor Day against the MFY).

What amazed me was that in the upper-deck section we were in, not only were there more Yankee than Oriole caps....there were more Red Sox than Oriole caps.

If the Orioles want to be pissed off at fans, they should be pissed off at their own. Opposition fans' vulgarity is not usually audible if your own fans show up.

I think people have dealt with the Yankees being annoying for so long that they just take it as a given.

"Yankees in town? Oh boy, gonna be packed tonight! Hot game!"

There's this bizarre feeling, I also think, among casual fans that Yankees fans (and perhaps players too, I dunno) have somehow earned their right to be everywhere at all times, because "THEY'RE THE YANKEES!" In other words, the Yankees are baseball's version of the Harlem Globetrotters. In the eyes of many, they can do no wrong.*

It must sting for them to have to deal with another team in the same fashion. I doubt it has much to do with the fans themselves so much as it's just an embarrassing thing to deal with. I have no doubt that if Rays fans started invading the Rogers Center every time they played the Blue Jays, Jays fans would think Rays fans were the most annoying fucking team, with the most annoying fanbase, ever.

*There are, obviously, exceptions to this. I am pleased to live in a place, Minnesota, where people hate the Yankees more than any other team with the likely exception of the White Sox, who are their predominant division rivals. People here begrudgingly respect Red Sox fans, but loathe the Yankees. Not even close.

That's the class he was so gracious to find in St. Louis. I guess it exists only there, no?

Has anyone else had this happen to them? A couple of seasons ago I scored a seat 15 rows above the Sox dugout in Baltimore. This was a getaway game won by the Sox in extras, thanks in part to all of all people Julio Lugo, and the day after the Sox infamously blew that huge lead and lost to the Os in what remains the greatest comeback in Os history. And the whole time he's leading me to my seat, the usher is killing me, in Scottian terms: "You people come here and you take over this place and you think you're so good and it just pisses me off . . .this is our place and you should respect that . . . blah blah blah." The whole time.

Then he dried my seat. And I tipped him.

Luke Scott should suffer a fate similar to Steve Irwin's. But instead of dying near the Great Barrier Reef, he's going to be found in a three foot kiddie pool in right center.

He sounds like just a miserable human being.

I cannot wait to hear the crowd when Boston's first home series comes against Tampa if Luke Scott even comes out of the dugout. Granted, there's the potential that he's the dumbest player in baseball until Elijah Dukes makes his comeback, so it's almost a compliment.

He also hides loaded guns all around his house. One day we will hear about a visitor to Luke Scott's home who sat on a couch and shot him or herself in the ass because there was a loaded handgun between the pillows, just in case an intruder broke in. I only hope it's Luke himself.

So I get it that it would bug you that your ownership put such a shitty product together that the local fans would stay away in droves, leaving lots of seats for Red Sox fans to snap up. But that's not about Red Sox fans.

I hope Luke and Elijah get in a fender bender down in Florida and exchange gunfire instead of papers.
