...the Sox won the Series, for those who didn't already know. Since we have Rockies fans among us, so I won't speak more on this. Instead, I'll move on to another fine example of reasons to love Jerry Remy. This should amuse Michael, at least...
Just now, during the post-analysis on NESN with Jerry and Jim Rice, they touched on the odd diversion during the eighth inning of tonight's broadcast. For those who weren't following along, the geniuses on the mic at FOX decided to start discussing the fact that A-Rod was opting out of his contract with the Yanks. It was in decidedly poor taste and very unsporting: disrespecting the game at hand, and, by extension, all members of the Rockies and the Sox, and frankly, all of Denver. More than stoopid - downright careless.
Anyways, Remy summed up his reaction in about two sentences. Before he was done, he laid the blame on both Scott Boras (everyone's favorite agent to hate) for choosing to release that info in the middle of the World Series and the moronic FOX broadcasters for deciding to talk about in the late innings of Game 4.
I wish I could find a transcript of the fire Remy was spitting. It was awesome. No beating around the bush at all: the words "despicable", "disgusting", and I think "unprofessional" all made appearances, and, had he been a younger man, I think they would have needed to tape-delay his comments in order to properly censor him. 🙂 Go, Rem-Dawg!
