Happy Birthday Lou Merloni!

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Evil Bastard (aka Chris_L), Apr 6, 2007.

  1. The unofficial Mayor of Framingham, MA and bestest buddy of Nomar turns 36 today. His birthday is also shared by Hall of Famer and fellow Massatuckian - Mickey Cochrane (born 1903). In their honor - here are who I think are the top 5 baseball players from the Great Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

    1. Pie Traynor - one of the top 5 3rd basemen of all time
    2. Tim Keefe - 8th all-time in wins with 342
    3. Mickey Cochrane - Hall of Fame Catcher - 2-time MVP
    4. Rabbitt Maranville - Hall of Fame shortstop
    5. (tie) John Clarkson - 11th all-time in wins with 328 (and he started his career with the Worcester franchise) (tie) Tom Glavine - future Hall of Famer

    Jeff Bagwell just misses the cut.

    What about Billy Guerin?
  6. They don't want you to talk like a pirate around here.

    There don't want you to be able to change your name around here.

    Round here if you notice the contrast of white on white they call you picky.

    The angels who first came here have gotten a better view of what you're posting and they have headed for more productive pastimes.

    Round here they don't stand up straight - they hunch over keyboards and radiate malice instead.

    Round here everyone is more than just a little misunderstood and every one has trouble acting normal even they're not nervous.

    Round here they make up stupid screen names

    Round here journalists try to think the same

    Round here people talk just like lions

    But they lay down when confronted just like lambs

    Round here Lou Merloni rules the land.

    And don't you fucking forget it.

    Round here, Chris L thinks he's a black jewish crooner who bangs celebrities. ROOOOOOOOOOOUND HERE!
  8. Flying Headbutt is a mamas little baby who better get himself in out of the lightning 'cause round here Lou Merloni calls down the thunder!

    And don't you forget it (or I'll have to call you a big yellow taxi)

  12. This reads like Counting Crows as written by Lili Taylor's character in "Say Anything."
    Triumphantly weird post, sir.
    My compliments.
