Game 128, White Sox at Mariners
Anyone else notice that Dave Niehaus pronounces Orlando Hernandez’ nickname like “El Dookie,” which I believe is Spanish for “The Album that Made Green Day Big”?
It’s a good thing Jose Contreras doesn’t have a nickname that Dave can turn into a homonym for poop. And speaking of fecal matter, Joel Pineiro … nah, that’s too easy.
Oh, and one other note: evidently, getting knocked around by the Mariners earns you a ticket to the minors these days. Hard to argue with that, either.
Confidential to Peter C.: Don’t think I didn’t notice that you left the game last night just before Eddie served up the game-winner. You’re lucky the Jeff-man has a loving heart, and is not superstitious.
