Tim McCarver and the 1990 World Series
My lord, Tim McCarver is damn annoying. I remember being annoyed by him as a 7th grader watching the ’90 World Series. What 7th grader has an opinion on something like that? Listening to McCarver again as an adult is like nails on a chalkboard. GUH!

Random notes on the first 1.5 innings of the 4th game of teh 1990 World Series:

– A damn lot of drama packed in just 30 minutes of baseball (injuries to Hatcher, Davis & Braggs’s bat break)

– I went nuts when I saw Braggs break his bat over his back when I saw this as a kid. It’s still mind blowing to see.

– Chris Sabo is seriously my hero. SPUDS!

– Jim Kaat are you showing off your high school class ring? Oh, I guess that’s your ALC ring. Whatever. Stop showing it off.

– Dave Stewart was a badass mofo. How did we win this series, let alone sweep? The A’s were insanely stacked – McGwire, Canseco, Stewart, Henderson, Eckersley. Jeez. WILLIE RANDOLPH!


The McCarver Drinking Game

Here’s how to play:
Get a bottle of your favorite booze and a shot glass and…
1: Drink every time Tim uses a multi-syllable word incorrectly.
2: Drink every time Tim states the obvious like it is a profound insight.
3: Drink every time Tim calls the play wrong.
4: Drink every time Tim gets a player’s name wrong.
5: Drink every time one of Tim’s inane comments is met with stoney silence by the other broadcasters in the booth.

Guaranteed: you’ll be drunk by the bottom of the 1st inning.

    I just got confirmation from Jay Bruce, the next great rookie of the Reds, that he will do a special “guest blog review” of a card of his. So keep an eye out over the next 2 weeks and I will let you know when it is going to happen. Let me know if you have any questions for him and I will try to throw them in if I can.

    Ha! That’s a great idea. Way to snag Jay for that. Best of luck. We’ll let you know if we think of anything good to ask.
