I probably won't be able to listen to this live, but it sounds cool. Is the audio going to be archived?

redsock said...

It will be archived. I'll have a link for that later.

Ish said...

Kason Gabbard's coming back. For some reason I feel rather good about that. I liked him.

And it (somewhat) nullifies the Eric Gagne debacle. Murphy and Beltre are still with Texas. Sounds like cash considerations going back to the Rangers.

Just read a review of the Mohegan Sun center-field bar seats at the Toilette-Nouveau, and they reminded me of the Hard Rock in the Skydome...until I read the price for seats - NINETY FUCKING DOLLARS????

I nearly shat myself. That's fucking ridiculous, $90 to sit in a bar and watch the game through glass. It's fucking $5 in Toronto and they usually don't bother charging it. I can understand it being a bit more because its New York, but $90 - anyone who coughs this up is out of their fucking mind.

God dammit. I could go on but I don't want to blow any veins in my forehead. Jesus fuck.

Jere said...

It makes me verify I'm over 18 and says the show features "strong content." Live up to that! F-bombs! Or at least say dong once or twice.

L-girl said...

Jere, are you going to sign up to chat?

redsock said...

And he said he got his $ worth!!!

...

Maybe I should talk completely in JoS code.

redsock said...

Host: "This isn't under the FCC so don't worry about maybe a bit of cursing."

I'm supposed to call in at 9:10.

...

People are chatting at the site now!

redsock said...

I think I signed up to chat

redsock said...

click "login" in top right to register

L-girl said...

I registered but I can't bring myself to chat with such moronitude. I'll just thread here by myself.

redsock said...

Hope the chat is no indication of the show.

L-girl said...

If it is, you should high tail it out of there.

Jere said...

Wow, you're suggesting we just listen but talk about it here? That's not a bad idea.... but I will go see if I can register over there.

Jere said...

Hey I hear the dude talking.

L-girl said...

Yeah, listen but thread here. That chat is too dumb.

L-girl said...

Check out JobaJr. He's my new hero.

Jere said...

Wait, what the H? It says it's a Red-Sox Yanks debate but he says he specifically wants Yanks or METS fans? I'm confused.

redsock said...

Jere could add some good anti-Yank stuff

L-girl said...

I don't know. I was surprised by that too. I hope Allan's not being ambushed.

L-girl said...

I've done media where I've been blindsided. They swear it's an intelligent show, and you find yourself in the middle of screaming match. Later they apologize like they weren't expecting it. Yeah right.

redsock said...

I need my posse!

Jere said...

ooh, he's using the "rape" term. Who the f is this guy?

redsock said...

L talking trash!!

redsock said...

rape- "for lack of a better word"

L-girl said...

We're on it, A.

L-girl said...

MannysDong, Jere is that you???

redsock said...

commenters might not dictate level of show. the nyy blog is quite good, i think. smart stats, graphs and pie charts!

L-girl said...

Will this guy ever shut up???

Jere said...

this is ridiculous

Jere said...

you had to ask if that was my name?

L-girl said...

Damn, I lost my connection in the middle of Allan talking

L-girl said...

I knew it was you.

tim said...

I'm here and ready to rumble! Should be studying but oh well, this looks fun.

9casey said...

This guy from the Yankee blog actually seems pretty realistic.....

9casey said...

Red Sox have to be a eight or a nine

L-girl said...

9C, yeah, that was part of the deal. He does an intelligent blog, so Allan figured it would be ok.

9casey said...

Bench.....its in the hospital

9casey said...

We changed our whole bench , Allan

L-girl said...

9C, it's not so easy to think of everything on the spot.

9casey said...

L-girl said...
9C, it's not so easy to think of everything on the spot.



I know, I'm just bustin balls, and we also have Kotsay back

9casey said...

Bruney may be legit

9casey said...

Likes MDC, he loves him in a Andy kind of way...

9casey said...

Masterson..RESPECT

tim said...

this is hilarious. chirpin yankee fans.

9casey said...

No contest...

L-girl said...

this is so funny. i haven't been in a chat thing in years.

Benjamin said...

I'm trying to come up with something clever to say about Allan's voice, but I've got nothing. It's a perfectly ordinary voice.

L-girl said...

It sounds higher on the radio than it is in person.

Benjamin, are you Birdbathia?

tim said...

No that's me, L.

I lost the audio. Damn you crappy laurier wireless in the library.

L-girl said...

Tim! Cool. I'm cracking up.

Benjamin said...

All this "lets you and him fight" stuff is tiresome.

L-girl said...

nice to hear allan warming up

L-girl said...

Benjamin, I know. Both guys are smart and serious, but the host can't keep up.

tim said...

What a bloody joke. Oooh just got audio back. This should be humorous.

L-girl said...

I'm gonna put moderation back on. I think the idiots from the chat room might be on their way over. :)

tim said...

I'm out - REALLY gotta get going on this homework.

Ish said...

That was a fun thread to read! :)

Ish said...

It's just too bad I didn't participate. April sports roll on and both TVs in the living room got another workout.

redsock said...

Shit, that guy did more pro-Sox stuff than me!!!!!!

Jere said...

what the frick? That Joey guy makes a sexist joke about LGirl at the end? Fuck that site.

SoSock said...

Wow, I caught the last 5 minutes or so. Didn't get to hear much of A.
I signed up to chat without really looking first. Made 1 coment and realized this was a typical "this is why I don't chat" chat.
It actually took me a few weeks of watching this site to decide it was actually intelligent conversation.
Well, usually - :)

andy said...

You should let some yankees fucks come in here sometime.

Mike A said...

Shit, that guy did more pro-Sox stuff than me!!!!!!Trust me, I only did it raise expectations so it hurts more when you crash and burn! ;)

JoeyH. said...

Thanks for coming by to the show guys. Sorry it got a bit out of hand in the chat but I guess these things are kind of expected when you mend the Yankees and Red Sox fans. That isn't generally the way the show works; this was the first time doing a show of this kind. But anyway thanks for coming and chatting and listening. Hope to see you there in the future

Really? ... Maybe not a good idea to insult the partner of one of your guests.

Trust me, I only did it raise expectations so it hurts more when you crash and burn!

After 2003, I became untouchable. Nothing will ever hurt me again.

In the end, I think more things have to go right for the Yankees (or fewer things go wrong) for NY to win the East than for Boston. The Red Sox are a more solidly constructed team, with players in reserve in case/when shit happens.

andy said...

With a Bailey Dong on top.

JoeyH. said...

"Really? ... Maybe not a good idea to insult the partner of one of your guests. "
I don't want you to think that I made any sort of a sexist joke. I replied to what somebody said in the chat room. It's an open chat room I can't pay attention to what everyone is saying while doing a show. From what I understand there was a bit of a fight going on with two of the listeners. So for that I apologize but I cant except total responsibility for what everyone does. It's an open chat room I'm just the host not the baby sitter.

redsock said...

Well, I have no idea what was said, I was simply responding to Jere's comment.

The show was good. Always nice to hear from an intelligent NYY fan. Now I have a new blog to check in with every so often.

JoeyH. said...

Yeah. I got it. What do you want me to do? I was busy taking notes during the show. Like I said. When you put 40 or so people in one room things are bound to get nasty. Me, personally, I'm not that way. Just don't think what some asinine listeners say in the chat room is a reflection of what my beliefs are or how I run my show. Tonight was a larger turnout than usual and lots of new chatters, I'm sorry if anyone was offended but just don't think this is a reflection of my personality.

tim said...

Boy, L...aren't ya glad you aren't involved with that crowd anymore (MFY fans)?

When that JtCjr kid said "You red sox fans all seem so old" or something, that compliment brought a tear to my eye, realizing that even someone as idiotic as that can recognize our superior intellect. =) We did JoS proud.

nyfan51 said...

I need to comment on the sexist remark bash. There was quite frankly--stupid banter going on between jobajr and lgirl--it was pretty boring actually and considering lgril is an adult, should have ended much sooner than it did. Anyway, the insults were flying, pms was mentioned and the tampon comment was added. No one was insulting anyone's wife. That's not what the show is about and for the record, the Host did try to control the chat--several times threatening to ban the chatters for their out of line comments. Grown women should know better than to exchange banter with little boys. It was boring, it was inappropriate, and not the content that belonged in the show.

L-girl said...

"That Joey guy makes a sexist joke about LGirl at the end? Fuck that site."

Did he? I missed it.

"Made 1 coment and realized this was a typical "this is why I don't chat" chat."

Definitely! But it's a hoot to be stupid once in a while - to serve a good cause ;)

L-girl said...

"Boy, L...aren't ya glad you aren't involved with that crowd anymore (MFY fans)?"

YES. But I was never around fans like that - except at the Stadium. And something tells me there are Sox fans out there who do the same thing.

The weird thing is that people from the chat seem to think I was actually angry or upset. Maybe they can't visualize a woman just laughing and going along with the silliness, they can only imagine I'm upset. Or is it that *they're* boiling mad, so they assume I am too? I was laughing and enjoying it. If I weren't, I wouldn't have been there.

I save my anger for important things.

L-girl said...

"I need to comment on the sexist remark bash. There was quite frankly--stupid banter going on between jobajr and lgirl--it was pretty boring actually"

As opposed to the highly intelligent commentary everyone else was offering? 100% of what goes on in those chats is stupid and boring.

"and considering lgril is an adult, should have ended much sooner than it did."

Why? I was enjoying a bit of fun. I assume everyone there was doing the same thing. Why should I have ended it sooner?

I wasn't the slightest bit offended by anything that was said. I'm not going to be offended by nonsense in an anonymous chat room saying things like "maybe Lgirl has PMS". For chrissakes, if something like that offended me, I'd need some serious help.

"Anyway, the insults were flying, pms was mentioned and the tampon comment was added."

I didn't see a tampon comment. I'm sure it was a real zinger.

That's sarcasm, btw.

"Grown women should know better than to exchange banter with little boys."

Grown men (assuming you are one) should know better than to lecture grown women on their behaviour.

Do you lecture all the chatters on that site - all of whom were doing the same thing - or did you single me out for some reason? Could it possibly be because I was the only chatter with a female name?

tim said...

Yeah, I'm sure "Red Sox Nation" has its share of idiots too - especially of the card-carrying variety. Just not in that chat room =)

But hey....at least yankee fans have money. bahahahahahahahahahahahaha

L-girl said...

"Just not in that chat room =) "

Correctamundo

"But hey....at least yankee fans have money. "

Ha ha, poor guy was desperate!

Ish said...

But hey....at least yankee fans have money. Ha, more money now at least, considering they're not using their Toilet.

andy said...

L you spend most days in here "exchanging banter" with this little boy. Tampon Tampon PMS Vagina

L-girl said...

"L you spend most days in here "exchanging banter" with this little boy."

But that's different because I love you.

* * * *

Seriously Andy, your banter here is a PhD in physics compared to what was going on over there.

L-girl said...

Oh but Jere, I forgot to say: thank you for your anti-sexist vigilance. Whether or not I was personally offended, you are great.

tim said...

It's times like this that I'm glad I chose to be male.

???
!!!

9casey said...

So , i stopped listening at about 9:30, so I missed all the chat "problems", but what I get from all of this , is that Jere was offended that some yankee fan talks about tampons, is that even close.......

9casey said...

Is there a chance that tonight's thread my actually have yankee visitors? That would be cool, as long as everyone can keep it as classy as Allan and the other guy did last night(sorry I forgot your name)...

L-girl said...

"It's times like this that I'm gla d I chose to be male."

"I don't know you guys walk around with those things"

/elaine

L-girl said...

"So , i stopped listening at about 9:30, so I missed all the chat "problems", but what I get from all of this , is that Jere was offended that some yankee fan talks about tampons, is that even close"f

Not really :)

There really weren't any problems, but I guess some people thought I was taking it more seriously than I was. I was insulting and being insulted by a young, dumb, Yankees fan. Usual chat room stuff, and as as SoSock said, why I don't go to chat rooms.

"Is there a chance that tonight's thread my actually have yankee visitors? That would be cool, as long as everyone can keep it as classy as Allan and the other guy did last night(sorry I forgot your name)..."

There's a good chance, but I doubt it would be classy. I've been rejecting moronic NYY--fan comments all morning.

I think we should keep mod on tonight, but Allan says we'll try it w/o and see how it goes.

nyfan51 said...

Lgirl, it appears you misunderstood my post and I am happy to hear you were not offended by the comments made by jobajr. Your friend, Jere, however was insulted for you. "what the frick? That Joey guy makes a sexist joke about LGirl at the end? Fuck that site"
Thu Apr 23, 10:32:00 PM

His reaction was fuck that site, the host offended you. There was no lecture directed to you, just an attempt to clarify what was going on. The host did not mean to offend you. I'm glad you had fun and by the way--I'm a female. You weren't singled out--I was responding to Jere's comment. I see you responded to him yourself. Glad you had a good time.

L-girl said...

"Lgirl, it appears you misunderstood my post"

No, I did not. You did single me out:

"considering lgril is an adult, should have ended much sooner than it did."

and

"Grown women should know better than to exchange banter with little boys. It was boring, it was inappropriate, and not the content that belonged in the show."

You singled me out twice.

Your description of the exchange as boring, stupid and inappropriate - when it was exactly like all the other banter going on among all the other chatters - is also singling me out.

Re-reading your comment, I don't see how it could be interpreted any other way.

Thanks for stopping by to explain.

andy said...

The yankees are not good.

nyfan51 said...

Lgirl---I don't expect this to be posted--I'm sure your neanderthal posse will have it blocked. I wasn't singling you out--but probably should have. By your own admission, you were trading insults with a young boy. Your posse should have seen how you instigated the whole situation before coming to your defense. I repeat while you might not have been bothered, your protectors were and that should not be anyone's impression of how the show works. The host did not insult you. Happy Bantering!

L-girl said...

"Lgirl---I don't expect this to be posted--I'm sure your neanderthal posse will have it blocked."

Allan and I put the comments through ourselves. Neither of us are Neanderthal.

"By your own admission, you were trading insults with a young boy."

I have no idea how old "JobaJr" is. Still don't.

"your protectors were"

Those are my friends. Just plain friends.

"The host did not insult you."

Nor did I think he did.

Thanks again for stopping by. Maybe take a valium before your next visit.

redsock said...

I've always wanted a posse.

Now I have one.
