I don't expect anyone to actually read this, but I found this conversation Liz and I had during the All-Star game pre-show hilarious and so I'm posting...for posterity or something.
me: WTF? Pre-game show?!
Elizabeth: Yeah, this All Star game probably won't get underway for an hour and a half. I'm really starting to hate sports
me: what?!?!?! It's already 8 here and I have to be AT work at 7 tomorrow :(:(:(:(
Elizabeth: Welcome to watching sports on the East Coast
Elizabeth: I'm exaggerating about the hour and a half, but it won't start right away
me: boo-urns. dude how long is Girardi gonna have braces?
Elizabeth: The Yankees manager? I didn't know he had them
me: yeah, he does and has for quite awhile
Elizabeth: He always looks pissed off. I don't think I've ever seen him smile.
Really though, LeBron was kind of the tipping point. I'm starting to hate sports. Or at least the way they’re broadcast.
me: well ESPN has been really terrible for awhile now, for sure
Elizabeth: Yeah. It’s that, it’s the fact that athletes are mostly a-holes who are paid more than the GNP of a lot of countries .... It’s a lot of things
me: yeah, I hear that. It's the fact the Berman and Joe Buck still have freaking jobs!!!
Elizabeth: haha what's he doing there?
me: and Boch!
they are on the coaching staff apparently. you don't have it on in the office?
Elizabeth: We do
I was just about to say "Bud Black!" to you. You beat me too it
We have the sound down though. I didn't know why Buddy was there.
I guess Manuel picked him as a bench coach
me: yeah. guess so
Elizabeth: what? I wasn't watching
Okay, I'll stop now
Are they seriously booing?! That's lame
Elizabeth: Who are they booing (we have the sound down)
me: the Red Sox
and they sortof boo'ed the Giants players, too
and the Yankees
Elizabeth: I like it. Angels fans getting a little teeth :)
me: but it's the All Star game!
and they cheer Albert? Stay classy SoCal
Elizabeth: I have no problem booing people in the All Star game.
me: they all laughed it off so I guess it's cool
Elizabeth: Yeah I don't think any feelings are getting hurt, don't worry
If I were an Angel fan, I'd hate the Sox too. We've beaten them a few times
me: yeah, but they are a stupid team who shouldn't exist anyway.
Elizabeth: haha, now who's being mean? Their name is stupid. I recognize their right to exist
me: They cheer for people in their division and boo Joe Girardi. They are dumb
Elizabeth: Look at these actors, being all serious
me: This makes me laugh, This is the All-Stars among us thing
I still heart Julia
I don't care
Elizabeth: Was she in it? I just Ford, Affleck and McConaghey
me: she was first! Julia follows no one!
Elizabeth: I think someone from Glee is singing the nat'l anthem
Way to synergize, Fox!!
Dude, MLB puts everything about the All Star game except the rosters on its Web site. I finally ended up on Wikipedia, as usual
me: what did we do before Wikipedia?
Elizabeth: Lived in darkness
me: pretty much
wow. homegirl just changed keys in the first 2 bars
me: I didn't do that when I SANG THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AT A CHARGERS GAME :p
Elizabeth: hahaha of course you didn't. You're perfect
me: and it was pre-recorded.
Elizabeth: I'm sure her's is too
me: I don't think so. parts of it where a complete mess.
Elizabeth: Maybe that was her best take!
That's how much better than her you are.
me: hahaha. I love you Elizabeth :)
More f-ing commercials?!?! Seriously. Hate. Sports
Elizabeth: I miss the world cup. I'm so un-American. At least soccer games start when they say they're gonna start
Elizabeth: Oh look, cute kids. Vom. It.
sorry, I'm in a pissy mood.
me: I was thinking the same thing. They are terrible. I hate that people think kids should get to do everything.
Elizabeth: Are there any players you don't think are hot?
me: Big Papi?
Elizabeth: yeah no Red Sox are hot
Elizabeth: Corey Hart looks sad to me. At least he did at the Derby last night
me: he looks like a redneck
Elizabeth: a sad redneck
Elizabeth: I wish Cano got an error. F-ing yankees
Although, other than the yankee players - Go AL!
me: haha right, right
Elizabeth: I think this is the NL's year though
And then Liz had to go home. Good times, ya'll good times.
