Overheard at a Red Sox-Dodgers Game

I went to the Red Sox vs. Dodgers exhibition game this weekend at the Coliseum.  It was the largest baseball game in history, with 115,300 attendees.  This was my view from the very last row at the top edge of the stadium:

 

At the top of the 7th, it was 7-1 Red Sox, and a man wearing a Sox cap and t-shirt pulled down one of the many Dodger flags flying on flag poles around the top edge of the Coliseum.  This started something of a mini-riot, as everyone else wanted one too.  Pretty soon, nearly all the flags were gone, and the police were running up the stairs.

Crowd: (pointing at the Red Sox cap guy) He did it!  He did it!

Tattooed Guy Sitting Next to Me: Man, everyone’s a snitch.

Policeman #1: (to the Red Sox cap guy) OK, let’s go.

Red Sox cap guy: What?  What I do?

Policeman #2: (reaching into Red Sox cap guy’s back pocket, pulls out the Dodger flag) Really, you’re gonna lie to us?  Get up, let’s go.

[Red Sox cap guy gets up and gets escorted out.  The crowd cheers, then quiets down.]

Dodgers Fan with Goatee: (to the Red Sox cap guy, as he is led away) Yeah!  Boston sucks!  Hahaha!

Red Sox cap guy: Yankees suck!  Yankees suck!

One day, as the screen goes dark, I only hope that something as good as this would eulogize me.

P.S. This version of Pachelbel’s Canon needs to be in Guitar Hero.

It’s always nice to start the day off with a little Marley.

Overheard at a Hipster Wedding

Hipster #1: Hey, nice sunglasses.  Ray Bans?

Hipster #2: … 1943 vintage Ray Ban Aviators, actually.

Me: It looks like your suspenders are jerry-rigged to go down to your socks.

Hipster #2: This ain’t no jerry-rig, buddy.  It’s 1946 United States Marine Corps standard issue.  Vintage.

I’ve often thought this about many ladies, but have never found the words until now.

Ivan Rios, whose real name was Manuel de Jesus Munoz, was one of six remaining members of the leadership council of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.

“The FARC has suffered a new, major blow,” Colombian Defense Minister Juan Manuel Santos said, according to The Associated Press.

Rios was killed by his own chief of security, who offered items including the rebel leader’s severed right hand as proof of his death, the AP quoted Santos as saying.
