Token Baseball Post of the Day
While reading Bill Simmons' excellent article on Manny Ramirez (I know, right?) this line certainly caught me off guard:
"You could always count on Manny to act like the craziest guy at a Fugazi concert. Nobody loved the walk-off mosh pit more."
I can tell you that Ian MacKaye would not approve of seeing the words "Fugazi, "loved" and "mosh pit" in such close proximity to each other, unless the phrase "stopping a concert to berate that guy in the middle of" was also in there. It seemed like an odd reference to throw in there. Why not just go with Rage Against the Machine or something? (And just for fun, here's a NSFW YouTube link of the most famous moment of Fugazi berating.)
Also, after watching James Loney (, Dear) take Ryan Dempster deep on Wednesday, soon followed by Lou Pinella summoning Sean Marshall from the bullpen, I was berating myself for not making a Sean Marshall/Cat Power joke in our baseball music post the other day. I'll try not to let you down like that again in the future.
