Game Thread Silliness

During last night's game, NESN showed video footage of a visit Jerry Remy and Heidi Watley made to sick kids in a hospital. Remy said some kid was so happy he started crying. I posted:
the kid at the hospital was crying because he wanted to talk to heidi, but remy showed up
Jere:
I'd want Castig to come to my hospital and call the operation. "And his eyesight returns, can you believe it?"
Then two at the same time:

Joe Grav:
I wouldn't want troop.
"IT'S A GREAT SURGERY SO FAR! AMAZING! BEAUTIFUL! FAST... oh, he screws it up and the patient is dead."
redsock:
better castig than trupe:
"THERE'S THE OPERATION --- OH MY GOD, JERE'S HEARTBEAT IS LOW, WAY LOW, HE IS DEA .... oh no he's perfectly fine"
I thought it was great that we both went for "truping the operation" and that Joe went alive-dead and I went dead-alive. There were others:

redsock:
Kay: "There's a scalpel."
ish:
"He is high, he is far, he isssss dead!"
redsock:
Don: "This is Dr. Smith's 7th hip transplant operation for Dr. Smith. The first one was back on April 16, 1994, a Tuesday, at 10 AM. It lasted 5 hours and 14 minutes and .................."
Jere:
Staats: "And the surgery's successful. Must've been a Red Sox or Yankees fan."
redsock:
McCarver: "After he performed the sur-gery, the doctor told him "Sure, Jere (ri)!"

Buck: "..."
phil:
Hawk Harrelson on vasectomies: "Sacks packed with ... hegone."
Jere:
Rizzuto in dental surgery: "Gotta get across the bridge-work."
redsock:
Berman: "It looks like the patient has a pinched nerve in his back, back, back, back ..."
ish:
McCarver: "You know, this surgeon reminds me a lot of Derek Jeter. He's not as good as Jeter is yet, but he has a lot of potential. Jeter is so good and he has so much range. This surgeon here has the intangibles like Derek Jeter has."
redsock:
"Very clutch. That's a type of surgical technique you can't teach in medical school. Also, he makes the little stiches, the ones that don't show up on the post-op report."
Jere:
Morgan: "You can see he's going to the medical bag, I'd guess he's gonna break out the toothbrush for this operation."
redsock:
"That reminds me of a visit to the doctor I had when I was with the 1975 Reds."
redsock:
Vin Scully: "And I cannot believe what I just removed."
Jere:
Scully: "we take time out from this unassisted triple bypass to tell you about Armor hot dogs..."
ish:
Bob Uecker: "I must be in the front rooooowwwwww... of the observation deck."
Any others?

Phil's Hawk Harrelson was the clear winner.

Can't touch the Hawk line, but allow me to add the late great Ned Martin:
"Mercy..killing!"

redsock said...

"Mercy..killing!"

Excellent.

You left out your and Ish's collaboration last night, which I especially enjoyed since I live in Yankee territory:

Sterling: "You know, Suzyn, brain surgery is not like the other operations."

As much as people try, you just CANNOT predict brain surgery! There are stats for everything, but you still have to perform the surgery.

Morgan: "This surgeon does a good job on a consistent basis. He works hard and is a vital part of this consistent team. He reminds me of Sheffield."

(It should be noted that I wrote "This surgeon" because Morgan doesn't know half of the players who are on the field at any given time. Most of the time I listen to one of his games, I wonder if he's even paying attention to what's going on down on the field.)

As did I from 1987-2005.

I originally had only a sampling. I left out the Joe Morgan ones mainly because I didn't understand Jere's comment, but then figured what the hell, put them all in. Musta overlooked those.

Buck: "..."


This one was my favorite, as I can actually hear it in my head, including Buck's awkward silence.

redsock said...

Harry Caray would be unable to pronounce any of the procedures or body parts. He would also be tipsy.

Buffy: "And the doctor closing up the patient. Alex Rios is the greatest player of all time. It looks like a successful operation."

redsock said...

pokerwolf:
you made a mistake by spelling "consistent" correctly but spot-on choice of sheffield.

dont forget the morbid call that almost every play-by-play man uses, "twin killing!"
that always makes me cringe a bit.

Various Orsillo-isms:

"The dentist is drilling into that tooth full bore."

"The doctor is outstanding in the hallway."

"... and the patient is down by way of the internal bleeding."

"The diagnosis is cancer ... and the patient gets the bad news."

"The doctor's diploma was framed by Varitek."

redsock said...

Sing it!

"Who do you call
when your elbow's bus-ted?"

tim said...

In a results based business, he got the job done.

Orsillo:

The surgeon was late to the operating table. He was tardy on the cut.

ish said...

I want him as the head surgeon and so does everyone else, including him, and that is what we are working toward and we need him there now. There is no question about it, you don't have a guy with the best hands in the industry and keep him as a stand-by. You just don't do that. You have to be an idiot to do that.

Orsillo: The surgeon looks to the first eye and the third, but cuts to neither venue.

Lenny Clarke: Jerry! Don! The doctor said the kid's so ugly the prognosis is as bad as my career's. If it weren't for Dennis Leary, I couldn't find a job with a mining helmet. Speaking of mining helmets, I went to the proctologist yesterday...

Dennis Leary: Hey, Bruins, eh?

Jerry: Hey, guys, could you keep it down. It's hard enough finding time for these Sox Appeal clips while the game is going on.

Orsillo: Let's throw it down to Heidi. Heidi?

Watney: With the Red Sox trailing the Rays heading into the All-Star Break, I asked Red Sox Manager Terry Francona "Who is Ken Rosenthal, and why does he keep looking at my chest?" Here's what he had to say....

Jack Marshall said...

Heidi: he keeps looking at your chest because he only comes UP to your chest...

ish said...

Heidi: he keeps looking at your chest because he only comes UP to your chest...

I'll betcha even I am taller than Ken Rosenthal.

ish said...

Heidi, to Rosenthal: "Hey. I'm up here."
