WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS?
WE ARE MISSING THE MAGIC!
TONIGHT’S ASSIGNMENT IS BEAT LA!
I (baseball) HATE THE DODGERS!
BUT I LOVE TO RIDICULE THEM!
It was really easy when LASORDA was in the picture.
HOWEVER even way back when ridiculing the Brooklyn Dodgers would also have provided some fun.
The DODGERS found Charles Ebbets, their president and owner behind the booth where he was selling tickets. 26 years later he died on the morning of Opening Day April 18, 1925 so he didn’t make it to the game however in his honer the Dodgers lost to the Giants 7-0.
Another memorable moment that never gets old:
June 4, 1976
During this game Dave Kingman hit three home runs to beat the Dodgers. Kingman had 2 of these 3 HR games against LA, this was the first.
When asked what he thought about Kingman’s performance Tommy Lasorda had this historic response:
Reporter: Can you give us just a few basic comments about your feelings on the game?
Lasorda: Well, naturally I feel bad about losing a ball game like that, there’s no way you should lose that ball game. An’, it, uh, just doesn’t make sense.
R: What’s your opinion of Kingman’s performance?
TL: What’s my opinion of Kingman’s performance!? What the BLEEP do you think is my opinion of it? I think it was BLEEPING BLEEP. Put that in, I don’t BLEEP. Opinion of his performance!!? BLEEP, he beat us with three BLEEPING home runs! What the BLEEP do you mean, “What is my opinion of his performance?” How could you ask me a question like that, “What is my opinion of his performance?” BLEEP, he hit three home runs! BLEEP. I’m BLEEPING pissed off to lose that BLEEPING game. And you ask me my opinion of his performance! BLEEP. That’s a tough question to ask me, isn’t it? “What is my opinion of his performance?”
R: Yes, it is. I asked it, and you gave me an answer…
TL: Well, I didn’t give you a good answer because I’m mad, but I mean…
R: Well, is wasn’t a good question…
TL: That’s a tough question to ask me right now, “What is my opinion of his performance.” I mean, you want me to tell you what my opinion of his performance is…
R: You just did…
TL: That’s right. BLEEP. Guy hits three home runs against us. BLEEP.
LET’S MAKE SOME MEMORIES! BEAT LA!
