Yeah, I Giggled: Yanks-Rocks Gamer I

Sounds like a B-Movie title to be sure. Let’s see what happens in rare air as Mike Mussina swings a bat and faces off against Josh Fogg at Coors Field. Sorry for the brief game post; it’s a busy day in gerbilville; one interesting development is Jorge Posada playing first base. I am looking forward to watching the game in high-def on the new (well, new to me) tv set. It’s fun treating yourself on father’s day, to be sure. I hear that in HD you can actually count JT’s nose goblins individually, and the hue of ARod’s lips is rendered in surprising richness and saturation. Too bad Jason’s on the DL; I was looking forward to the sharp rendition of the beads of neck-sweat. Comment away.

  • just be thankful your first Hi-def experience wasn’t Tyler Clippard’s pizza face against the Mets.
    So apparently Randy Johnson has a herniated disc again…
    I also can’t wait to watch Posada at first. Same with Damon actually.

  • Randy Johnson vs. Norv Turner on HD should be a pay-per-view event.
    An hour split-screen still image of their mugs for everyone to contemplate.

  • I wonder who has the best record of the three of us with these gamers-YF, Gerbil or me? Same with Paul and SF. Who is the good luck charm, who’s the opposite?

  • I am game thread death for the Sox.

  • What’d ya get, Gerb?
    I’m jealous…

  • Gerb, it’s funny because we just bought a new house, and my only stipulation with the now much larger livingroom was a new TV. So, I went down to best buy (which is running a great program now with two years same as cash), and I’m now flipping between both games on my new LG 37″ LCD TV in High Def. It’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen, and quite frankly, don’t know why I’m so far behind the rest of the sports world. I’ve seen it in bars and stuff before, but in your own livingroom is something totally different. I’ll never watch a game anywhere else other than my house if I don’t have to!

  • Sorry to be so late and off-thread. Daddy duty and all.. Owen’s grandpa bought a new 50″ plasma; he sold me his 46″ Sony DLP (3 years old, does 1080i) to me for super cheap.. about half market value. I promptly ordered DirecTV HD w/DVR service; it was delivered this afternoon; looks SWEET!

  • rbf: Re: Mussina/Posada
    Mussina, rumor has it, is particular. He likes Nieves better is the story.

  • Nick: re gamer mojo, that’s a great study piece. I wish I knew how to look that up easily.

  • Getting shut down by Josh Fogg is not a pretty sight.

    AndrewYF June 19, 2007, 10:47 pm
  • Losing in HD sucks more sharply.

  • The Foggy results tend to suggest that the Rox are on a roll more than the Sox were sucking last week… it’s kind of reassuring.
