<quoted text>I am friends with a copule here who are from the East Coast and are Red Sox fans. J said that for a long time, you couldn't take your kids to a REd Sox game, ESPECIALLY if they were playing the Yankers, because it was just too inappropriate for families -- vulgar language, lots of overly drunk fans, etc. Then the REd Sox realized they were losing future fans this way, and they cleaned up their act. You can report fans for swearing, excessive drunkeness, and "Yankees Suck" shirts are no longer allowed. They said it's gotten much better.

Yankees do suck, though.
Yankees games are horrible. People are already drunk when the games start and dropping the f bomb during the national anthem.

Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray.

You'll have to speak a bit louder. Its a bit hard for noise to penetrate the wall built by 27 World Series trophies.

Iith the money spent on slaries for that team over the years, it is proof that you can buy anything.

Exactly. The Yankers can take very little pride in those trophies. I love when underdog teams with much smaller payrolls beat them.

I did not know if she had a flipping job or not....THATS WHY I ASKED HER!

I also have been on her since 2009, she has been here less than a year, so as it stands I post about 450 post a month and she is running @300 Not a huge diff, and she is still new to the game.

OMG from the carolyn hax live chat:

Friends in need
Hi Carol, Our friend's wife lost her job several years ago and they have had a tough time since then. Because my husband and I are in a fortunate position, we buy them grocery gift cards periodically. We recently found out that our friend's wife has turned down several jobs because "they don't feed my soul." We are aghast and do not want to continue to help them. However, they literally do not have food on their table some weeks. Should we say something or just stop helping them? Thanks!

Carolyn Hax :
Stop helping, say nothing.

I'm not sure whether typing that fed my soul or snatched its plate away, but the answer makes sense to me regardless.

I could not care less what a team's bankroll is. The NBA has a salary cap and a luxury tax penalty for those who go over the cap. You think the small town team that wins while staying under the cap has more to celebrate than the big city team that's paying the luxury tax? I think you're in the minority. I think most people want their team to win period and don't care about the payroll.

So in addition to your deficient logic and reasoning skills, your math ain't none too good neither.

Race's 28,213 posts in the 50 months since 2/09 = 564 posts/month.

Toj's 2,354 posts in the 9 months since 7/12 = 261 posts/month.

OOPS!!! I am sure that was just a convenient yet honest mistake on your part. 564 is fully double 261, so you're posting twice as often as her. Is that still "not a huge diff?" Dum dum.

Oh, come on, it's a *little* funny, although inappropriate. He was killed almost six years ago. I can see it not being funny if it just happened last year, but six years is plenty of time to not be so sensitive about it. Hell, when Whitney Houston died, there were jokes floating around the next day or two. Same with princess Dianna. Lighten up a little, folks. Any good Roger Ebert jokes yet?

Tim Pernetti, the Athletic Director at Rutgers, has resigned. In his letter, he says that he wanted to fire Mike Rice in November, but was overruled by HR and the lawyers. It was his job to advocate for the student athletes and he failed them in this case. I just love how no one wants to speak out against what is obviously wrong to most of the country until they have already lost their jobs. It's all about money.

I disagree. there's A LOT of hatred/resentment over the Yankees' payroll being the reason they can bring in the best players. That's why it's extra awesome when they lose.

NBA: What's the point in a salary cap if it's not enforced? Big deal, luxry tax penalty. If a market is big enough that they can afford to break the salary cap, they can afford the penalty. What a joke.
