Big Papi has some fun with A-Rod

Alex Rodriguez did a brief interview with the writers just now. As he was talking, David Ortiz shouted out from the adjacent locker, “No more talking about Madonna please!”

A-Rod paused for a second then kept talking as though he didn’t hear Big Papi. Everybody else started snickering, as did Ortiz.

    okay, so that’s amusing :-D

    For anyone watching these interviews and other pre-game ceremonies on Fox- do these Fox anchors make you want to slit your wrists? I’m not suicidal, but a few more minutes of Fox and you never know…

  3. DFox July 15th, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    “do these Fox anchors make you want to slit your wrists?”

    Absolutely. They are doing so much rooting and admiring that it’s silly.

    These Boston players show a lot of class…continually.

  5. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 15th, 2008 at 7:02 pm

    James Earl Jones!

    Guess they can’t help pushing the star wars metaphor. Evil Empire and proud!

  6. DFox July 15th, 2008 at 7:02 pm

    That intro Fox just ran was epic.

  7. mel July 15th, 2008 at 7:03 pm

    Was that James Earl Jones doing the voiceover for the intro? If so, thumbs way up.

    Parade on Fox now, for those who’re interested.

    Rebecca,

    Did you think of ray? I did.

    Jeez, I still think that it is sad that the winning league in this game gets homefield advantage in the World Series. They’re going to have to change the rule at some point, the National League hasn’t enjoyed homefield advantage since 2001. Alternating the advantage every other year like the old days would still work.

  10. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 15th, 2008 at 7:06 pm

    mel: Of course.

  11. mel July 15th, 2008 at 7:07 pm

    Alex, “It is smokin’ hot!”

    LOL!

  13. mel July 15th, 2008 at 7:09 pm

    Jeter and Yogi with all these blue collar guys talking about the Stadium is awesome.

  14. ERâ„¢ (The Last Yankee Fanâ„¢) July 15th, 2008 at 7:10 pm

    I hope a Red Sox player gets injured tonight.

  15. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 15th, 2008 at 7:10 pm

    I didn’t think I’d get emotional today, over the memories, but I am.

  16. mel July 15th, 2008 at 7:11 pm

    And let’s hope that they get taken to your ER, where everything is hopeless.

  17. ERâ„¢ (The Last Yankee Fanâ„¢) July 15th, 2008 at 7:12 pm

    I’m surprised Chevy can even afford to sponsor this event

    I didn’t know they still exist

  18. Craig July 15th, 2008 at 7:13 pm

    Ortiz was seen eyeballing a McDonald’s in mid-town ….

    “I hope a Red Sox player gets injured tonight.”

    Is that what the Yankees hopes have come to?

  20. Wolf In Pinstripes July 15th, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    Gawd, I turn the festivities on just in time for papelbon (note lowercase p) to be interviewed. Grrr.

  21. S.A.- I believe in this team but can the offense stop being so offensive? July 15th, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    Oh look, here’s Papsmear on Fox

  22. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 15th, 2008 at 7:16 pm

    Virgin Islands, ignore him.

  23. mel July 15th, 2008 at 7:16 pm

    VI,

    Relax. ER is not a real Yankee fan. No real fan would wish such. Well, they may wish it, but they’d never say it.

    Is Bloomberg a Yank or Mutt fan?

  24. pat July 15th, 2008 at 7:17 pm

    Pics of George on Yahoo. Sad that he looks so unsteady on his feet.

  25. pat July 15th, 2008 at 7:19 pm

    mel

    That isn’t a NY accent. The good mayor is a Bostonian.

  26. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 15th, 2008 at 7:19 pm

    mel: Yanks fan.

  27. DFox July 15th, 2008 at 7:21 pm

    “No real fan would wish such.”

    You mean you would have been genuinely upset if papelbon’s SUV fell off a bridge during the parade?

  28. mel July 15th, 2008 at 7:21 pm

    pat,

    He may be a Bostonian, but he’s a capitalist. That makes him a New Yorker now!

  29. mel July 15th, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    DFox,

    Read the sentence after that!

  30. pat July 15th, 2008 at 7:23 pm

    “You mean you would have been genuinely upset if papelbon’s SUV fell off a bridge during the parade?”

    I wish him no harm just a brain.

  31. pat July 15th, 2008 at 7:24 pm

    mel

    He’s a politician. That means he’s a bandwagon jumper.

  32. Lets try. July 15th, 2008 at 7:28 pm

    Why would you wish that some gets hurt. Its just a game, I bet they have family just like me and you.

  33. mel July 15th, 2008 at 7:31 pm

    I wonder if Papi would think it’s funny if Alex yelled out, “Why they no sell protein shakes in McDonald’s in New York?”

  34. Nick July 15th, 2008 at 7:33 pm

    Correct Pat and for reference see Rudee Julie Annie

  35. C-Rod July 15th, 2008 at 7:34 pm

    I’m not amused. Alex can have Papi in the settlement.

  36. Steve Schuman July 15th, 2008 at 7:39 pm

    I would never wish an injury on a Red Sox player. That is just ignorant and takes everything away from the word “sport”. On the other hand, I wish Sox players would just shut their faces. First Papelbon and now Ortiz. You know, it sounds trite to say that a Yankee would never say what Papelbon and Big Yappi said, but it is the truth. Tact doesn’t seem to be something the Red Sox organization preaches to their players.

  37. tantron willoughby July 15th, 2008 at 7:48 pm

    Alex will do himself a huge favor during the next off season and take Derek Jeter classes in Ladies 101. He really is lacking in gray matter.

    It must be tough living on 13.5 mill a year. Hope he enjoys the alimony and child support payments.

  38. debbie July 15th, 2008 at 7:56 pm

    er- i hope your ma gets injured tonight

  39. gt July 15th, 2008 at 7:57 pm

    “You know, it sounds trite to say that a Yankee would never say what Papelbon and Big Yappi said, but it is the truth. Tact doesn’t seem to be something the Red Sox organization preaches to their players.”

    Will you listen to what Hank says every week? And he never even steps on the field. It’s hilarious to watch yankee fans complain about paps or ortiz when your boss makes a joke of himself every time he opens his mouth. Turn that blind eye, I guess.

  40. West Coast Fan July 15th, 2008 at 8:16 pm

    Bloomberh may have been born and raised in Mass., but his mom is from Jersey. So that saves him.

  41. Chemmy July 16th, 2008 at 11:38 am

    Being from New Jersey “saves” people now? That’s what New York has come to? You’ve given up hating the B&Ts because of the Red Sox?

  42. Paps July 16th, 2008 at 1:08 pm

    Hope you Yanks fans enjoyed the last meaningful game at that beloved dump of a stadium. Yanks will be fortunate to finish third in the East this year…my how the mighty have fallen!

  43. Papi July 17th, 2008 at 6:46 pm

    BWAHAHAHA at Yankee fans talking about class…NY fans: The 2nd least classiest in sports (Philly).

    Reggie Jackson hates Jews…Little Stein is mouthing off…Daily News is ignoring the rest of Paps’ quote…C-L-A-S-S.

    I love this New York inferiority complex now…Boston could not be enjoying this more.
