Pregame wake and festivities

DMZ · August 15, 2005 at 9:53 am · Filed Under Mariners 

If you want to meet up with fellow USSMers, check out today’s unofficial USSM pre-game. We’re going to meet up tonight about 5:30ish, maybe a little earlier at the King Street Bar and Oven.

You get two USSM authors and a BP guy:

  • I’ll be there, trying to compose drinking songs about how depressed I am about Doyle.
  • Jeff will be there, helping with rhymes and meter. He’s the handsome one.
  • Jonah will be there, smiling, happy, and generally sociable, since it’s unlikely he’ll have another really bad day. Unless Jeff and I drag him into our Doyle-related despair.

Jonah’s trying to negotiate for a reserved table, so RSVPs if you’re going or will attempt to go would be helpful.

    Meche with a dead arm? Wow, we’ve never heard that one before.

    Hey Evan, you gonna need a chef at your new-fangled sports bar of yours? Might as well do it right, after all.

    What’s the deal you sellouts. Too classy for Larry’s now? Too seedy for the suburbanites?

    Only if you can make poutine.

    Ooh, I’ll try to be there in an hour. I’ve cheapie bleacher seats for tonight, but right now I’m trying to recover from my first bike ride in six months. I’ll be the beetroot red Irish one retching in the corner.

    Bugger. It is a BECU night. I’d have paid the full tenner for 300 level seats behind the plate but the guy in the team store told me there were no specials.

    I like the idea – Sports bar food as interpreted by the Culinary Institute of America! I will be a regular at the Ferret I think

    #49– “and the rumors continue to fly that Ichiro is perhaps the next to take a walk…”

    in 2008, maybe….

    M’s roster moves is like watching an episode of the Prisoner.
    Today they bring up Ojeda and send down Wiki.

    Jonah & DMZ, I forgot to follow up on something at the pre-game wake which I wanted your opinion on about Baseball Prospectus, but in particular Joe Sheehan…

    If you guys read it, what did you think of Joe’s piece a couple of weeks ago which was basically a eulogy to his father-in-law? No disrespect meant to Joe, but it seemed a little out of place in a baseball forum. It would have gone by without notice except then a day or two later in one of Will’s UTK columns, he spent a paragraph expressing thanks and appreciation for his father. Now this is a little more relevant since his father is a sports physician which relates directly to what Will writes about. But still, I can’t help think that I’m missing something about the BP philosophy or something. I admit that I was only reading the freebies for the last 3 years, but this year I subscribed and am reading more of the content. Perhaps I don’t fully understand the personalized views at BP. Anyway, Jonah, I anxiously await the tribute to your 3rd grade teacher. Hee hee.

    Good time at the King Sreet Oven thingie. Good beers, good conversation. And no apologies for lionizing the King!

    Rusty, BP publishes about 1,000 articles a year. You can argue the merits of a tribute article plus one paragraph if you like, but if 998.9 articles of baseball content aren’t enough, I’ll be happy to write 1.1 supplementary articles to bridge the gap.

  12. Rusty on August 16th, 2005 8:26 am

    Okay, thanks Jonah. I was just curious.

    nice meeting the few of you that I was able to yesterday afternoon, on the end of the table closest to the door.

  14. Jonah Keri on August 16th, 2005 10:27 am

    No problem Rusty–I was being sincere btw…I really am hyper enough to bang out an extra article to make a customer happy.

    Hopefully we can all reconvene Friday Aug. 26, vs. White Sox, Felix’s likely next home start.

    Jonah – after you wore the Fighters jersey yesterday, I have no doubt that you’re hyper enough to do anything for entertainment value 🙂

    (also – you should totally read Cromartie’s book if you haven’t. It’s awesome, and I bet it’d be even awesomer to an Expos fan.)
