Alioto-Pier wants a “local Italian-American” like Joe Montana or Barry Zito to have the honor of leading the parade.
“We can’t have Tommy Lasorda come to San Francisco for the Italian American parade,” she told the [San Francisco Chronicle]. “He’s like enemy No. 1 right now. If you don’t think this is important, you should move to L.A.”
Now that’s reppin’ your hood. However I’m not sure Barry Zito is the right move unless he’s on a float honoring massive wastes of money. That’s about as worthwhile as a float of when Tony saw Angela in the shower on Who’s The Boss. Who does more damage to the Giants? Lasorda or Zito. Zito’s enemy #1 by a long shot. Perhaps he should sleep with the sharks in the bay. An Italian problem deserves an Italian response.
Perhaps surprisingly, many readers choosing to comment on the story enthusiastically backed Lasorda. “Want a great meal in North Beach? Ask Tommy where to go, not Alioto dash blankyblank,” wrote one. Penned another: “Tommy Lasorda is all about being Italian and enjoying great food. Zito will be booed and Montana would never come.”
Low expectation having muthafuckas. How about Tony Siragusa as a compromise? He may not live in the Bay area but he did try to take Rich Gannon’s head off in a playoff game. The Raiders play in the Bay Area. San Francisco’s in the Bay Area. Three degrees of separation. No problem. Do it.
Have you noticed an increasing nervousness over the past week? A feeling of impending doom that you couldn’t place? Don’t feel bad. You were just channeling Austrian terror. Ze Germans are back!
The last time the Germans went on holiday in Europe en masse, they took the Sudetenland and a world war started. This time, they were not so lucky. Over 200 Germans were arrested on Sunday following Germany’s 2-0 win over Poland in Euro 2008.
Many of the fans were chanting “Seig Heil” and other Nazi slogans. “Only about a dozen of those arrested were not German”. Israel has to be glad it didn’t qualify for the finals.
It’s good to see the Austrians step up this time as opposed to running and singing in the mountains or just giving up like the French. The Deuce is all about the cheap WWII joke. We’d say we’d be here all week but we can’t even promise that.
(Turns out that Deadspin had this up Sunday…but I missed that, even used the same graphic at the top…but i’ll leave it up here for the Family Guy song at the end. Sorry chums! Thanks 100% for the tip) The Oregon Urology Institute has a suggestion for guys who want to skip work and watch the first couple rounds of March Madness, get a vasectomy! They are willing to supply guys who sign up for a vasectomy before the NCAA Tournament with a “recovery kit” including sports magazines, free pizza delivery and a bag of frozen peas for your junk.
“When March Madness approaches you need an excuse … to stay at home in front of the big screen,” the advertisement of the clinic’s radio said. “Get your vasectomy at Oregon Urology Institute the day before the tournament starts.”
“Wouldn’t it be ideal,” [Terry] FitzPatrick [administrator of the institute]said, “just to be able to have your vasectomy so you could watch March Madness?”
He had reserved a dozen appointment slots for March 19, the day before the first tipoffs of the NCAA Tournament. By Thursday afternoon, 15 men had signed up. FitzPatrick expected to fill all 24 slots and to make the promotion annual.
I dunno why any of these idiots would do this when you can just hop on to CBSportsline and watch all the games online while at work…um, yea, except I won’t be doing that at my job…nooo way…not me, never mind that I said that. The free magazines and pizza are enticing however. Perhaps if i was out of my prime baby making years i’d think about it just so I could sit at home and watch them all on the HD while chowing down on free pizza (always the best pizza) but I’m trying to catch up with the Elijah Dukes and Travis Henrys of the world dammit!
The best thing about this story is that it allows us to post the Family Guy Vasectomy Song in case you wondered exactly what happens when the doctor goes snip snip down there…sorta. Enjoy
