  • I’m waiting a week. Then, it’s mine.

  • $17, that’s a rip off. (I’m Kidding) Back to my original plan of selling them in the Giants Stadium parking lot. SF, you get 15% for coming up with the ever so perfect saying!

  • This can do double duty for Phillies fans, too.

    SF September 20, 2007, 3:04 pm
  • Why would anyone go to Giants stadium?

    Brad September 20, 2007, 3:05 pm
  • Why would anyone go to Giants stadium?
    To steal signs.

    SF September 20, 2007, 3:06 pm
  • The answer is easy Brad, to drink of course! All the joy the Yankees bring me, the G-Men drain out of me every Sunday. Not to mention the tickets have gone up every season for the past 5 years AND there are new parking restrictions that force you to get there at sunrise!

    John - YF (Trisk) September 20, 2007, 3:09 pm
  • Oh, so they’ve hired the same people that handle tickets and parking for Fenway?

    Brad September 20, 2007, 3:11 pm
  • Well, to be fair, SF: they’ve probably been doing that at every stadium they’ve played at for the past four or so years. I wonder whey they didn’t pick up the sign from the Raiders on the blitz that caused Brady to fumble? :)
    As a side note, that call made my whole year! ha.

  • Brad- They are building a new complex called Xanadu and a new stadium at the same time. They lost close to 10,000 spaces. Season ticket holders have to buy parking permits to park in the stadium lots. If you are a visiting fan or someone without a permit you have to get bused in from a satellite lot. So being that we didn’t know how quickly the lot would fill up we were there at 8 am for the GB game.

  • That’s terrible. 8:00a is too early to drink, I think. Well, maybe not. I’m pretty sure I’ve been drinking that early, but to be completely honest, when and if you start at 8:00a you normally wont remember what time it was you grabbed that first one. ha.

    Brad September 20, 2007, 3:21 pm
  • what limitations?
    what shortcomings?
    in 2008, they may all be a thing of the past.
    ladies, gentlemen, and BR…
    gabe kapler returns.

    Yankee Fan In Boston September 20, 2007, 3:22 pm
  • Awesome. Someone that can handle Shelly Duncan in a bench clearing.:)

    Brad September 20, 2007, 3:24 pm
  • PS – If you google image Gabe Kapler, it’s pretty disgusting.

    Brad September 20, 2007, 3:24 pm
  • disgusting?
    i’m afraid.

    Yankee Fan In Boston September 20, 2007, 3:28 pm
  • Yeah, there is a lot of grape smuggling going on there.

    Brad September 20, 2007, 3:29 pm
  • Thanks Brad, you just saved me the 8 bucks I was gonna spend on a late lunch.

    Tyrel SF September 20, 2007, 3:29 pm
  • Agreed Brad, agreed. By the looks of things Gabe would have very little use for SF’s new T-Shirt or any T-Shirt really. Gabe loves to go shirtless apparently.

    John - YF (Trisk) September 20, 2007, 3:31 pm
  • Tyrel it could have been worse, it could have been Gabe Kaplan!

    John - YF (Trisk) September 20, 2007, 3:32 pm
  • Kaplan probably would’ve saved me ten bucks on dinner too.

    Tyrel SF September 20, 2007, 3:40 pm
  • That dude’s fro is sweet.

    Brad September 20, 2007, 3:47 pm
  • Some Boston sports reporter interviewed on M & the M Dog just said that it’s clear Buchholz should be the 8th-inning man and that, when asked about this, Francona said he’s not ready to discuss such things yet. That’s so far from saying “absolutely not” that it makes me think that Bucholz to the pen is pretty much a foregone conclusion, unles both Okajima and Gagne suddenly turn things around.

    IronHorse (yf) September 20, 2007, 4:22 pm
  • I agree, Iron.

    Brad September 20, 2007, 4:23 pm
  • Is this shirt available in blue and orange?

    FenSheaParkway September 20, 2007, 6:59 pm
  • Soon. We’re adding numerous versions.

    SF September 20, 2007, 7:41 pm
  • Pinstripes?

    Tyrel SF September 20, 2007, 7:51 pm
  • Nope. Yankee fans wouldn’t ever cop to their team having shortcomings! ;-)

    SF September 20, 2007, 7:56 pm
  • Ok, we have a series of shirts up now, for Jetsfans, Soxfans, Metsfans, and Giantsfans.

    SF September 20, 2007, 9:06 pm
  • Here’s an idea for a T-shirt design.
    How about picture of a nervous Sox/Mets fan sitting out on a ledge, and a cop trying to talk him down?

    SoxFan September 21, 2007, 2:33 am
  • i feel like i was the inspiration for this shirt…i’ll be in touch with details about how you can arrange the royalty payments…

    dc September 21, 2007, 10:21 am
  • Hey, guys. So you know, there is sweet little plug for the t-shirts over on Soxaholix today. They’re saying you’re “batshit crazy”. ha.
