And now for your weekly update from the Wonkette Sunday Sports Desk: some people are losing some games, others are winning, whatever. But this weekend was a treat for the seven or eight Washington Nationals season-ticket holders, whose perforated booklets landed on the annual “Beat That Gal (Daughter? Wife? It Doesn’t Matter) Next To You” Promotional Event yesterday. Why do the Nationals hate nice ladies? Well, why not. Thank you for tuning in to this week’s edition of the Wonkette Sunday Sports Desk.

  1. The Nationals are just following the greatest Washington sports tradition: utter failure, at everything. I’m very disappointed in the Capitals, speaking of which.

  2. The way the Nats did my Brew Crew, the woman really should have been wearing a Ryan Braun jersey.

    (& now this becomes your anti-Semitic (even if he’s not observant) Wonkette Sunday Sports Desk post for the week.)

  3. That’s gotta hurt your hand, punching a girl in the skull. I would go for the more spongy, soft spots — and also avoid the arms, legs, and face as the bruises are more easily seen. As a former advocate for battered women, just sayin’ I got the inside scoop, is all.

  4. [re=559019]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Yeah right, but the so-called “Baltimore Orioles” are really the St Louis Browns. (St Louis: first in booze, first in shoes, and last in the American League!)

    [re=559018]Smoke Filled Roommate[/re]: Ha, and ha!

  5. [re=559040]V572625694[/re]: And the so-called “Noo Yawk Y@n#ee$,” the correct spelling of whose name will cast a horrible spell over my keyboard, are really the “Baltimore Orioles” (until 1903 – you can look it up).

    The only thing the 21st century Orioles have ever asked of me, their codependent — what you in other cities would call a “fan” — is to get slowly, carefully off the ledge. Every Frickin’ Season.

  6. Jim, when you tell folks at parties that you write for the Wonkette Sunday Sports rag I’m guessing you get the same reaction as I get when I tell people I ran cross country in high school. A sympathetic look and a nod indicating “you just couldn’t hack it in the real world of sports, could ya?” Kind of like having a Canadian girlfriend.

  7. [re=559045]Chernobyl Soup[/re]: Oh and before I get banned… I was making fun of me, not Jim, our All American All Conference All State of All Sports of All Time hero.

  8. When I went to Pirate games when I lived in Pittsburgh, they had a “Mullet Cam.” At boring moments in the game (most of the nine innings), the Mullet Cam zoomed in on people who still had mullet-hair (i.e. 25% of the audience) and put their pictures on the big screen for everyone else to laugh at. The mullet people would wave their fists and curse and try to give the finger on camera. Maybe the Nationals are just warning their fans that some sort of hair-do violence/entertainment is on the way.

  9. wake me when the zombie sonics do the job against the Los Angeles Jesus Quintanas. TrailBlazers by ten over the suns tonight, btw… Grant Hill gets a French lesson from Nico Batum.

    Does anyone actually watch baseball?

  10. I love to watch the Cubs and other teams, too. Baseball has a wonderful 19th century tempo that’s great for practicing a musical instrument to (pardon the Midwesternism — it’s the favorite place in a sentence we Midwesterners put a preposition at) — worked hard on my cross picking today as Marmol blew a save. Watching the Cubs also is enlightening about false expectations, senseless optimism and the superstitious nature of the athlete. They are indeed cursed — better them than me.

  11. Calling the Nationals a “Local Baseball Team” is like calling the “Washington Senators” (Texas Rangers) a baseball team. You’re taking liberties with the term “baseball team.”

  12. [re=559053]lawrenceofthedesert[/re]: When I was in college, I would go study in the bleachers of our local MLB team during afternoon week games. No one there, tix were 10 bucks, and I could watch the game live.

  13. Also, Nationals logo is total ripoff of Walgreens. Which is where the blond chick (or dirty hippie dude) is going right after the single serving of whoop-ass.

  14. [re=559049]ForTheTurnstiles[/re]: Does anyone actually watch baseball?
    I only watch sports that deplete natural resources, because why the hell not? It’s what Jeebus wants, also.

  15. [re=559049]ForTheTurnstiles[/re]: Not any more, but I still love the game. Too many commercials, and my Expos got turned into something unrecognizable. Oh, if by “watch”, you mean people on a Saturday afternoon just playing in the sun and having a beer in the dugout, yes.

  16. It’s actually a stereotype that Nationlas fans are all violent misogynists with skin that looks like it’s been basted in a 350 degree oven for an hour every ten pounds. They’re actually more educated, have a higher income level, and are more like the working class people they pretend to be than you Hollywood liberal elitist pigs are. Or Brewers fans.

  17. [re=559040]V572625694[/re]: [re=559040]V572625694[/re]: & the St. Louis Browns were the original Milwaukee Brewers. Look it up.

    Cannot wait ’til the Athletics move to Portland, Ore., & become the first MLB team to play in four cities, either. Fun. Though, it will still lag the Sacramento Kings NBA side by one city (Rochester Royals, Cincinnati Royals, Kansas City Kings, Kansas City-Omaha Kings, Sacramento Kings).

  18. Actually, it’s too early in the season to really give a shit (is what I always say).. *gulp*

    [re=559064]Sharkey[/re]: Yeah, Zimmerman? Should have had Greenberg at least.. Either that’s a customized jersey or some gay hipster baseball reference to ‘Turk 182!’.

  19. [re=559035]Long Form Def Certificate[/re]: [re=559072]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Unlike the Emetophillie and Snatchional fans of today, those of the ’82 Brew Crew could keep their brat & beer smoothies to themselves while enjoying Ueck call another game-winning Vook puke.

    Also, the sexual act that shares its name with the drink known as a “Harvey Wallbanger” makes a donkeypunch look like a bunnycuddle.

  20. [re=559072]SayItWithWookies[/re]: More simpatico to your point:

    Major League was filmed in Milwaukee — and specifically, at Milwaukee County Stadium — because Cleveland and its stadium were deemed not nearly ecomomically depressed and run down enough.

    I was a crowd extra during the filming of a few of the game scenes, and even the promise of a split-second of Hollywood screen time — and maybe a furtive jerk-job of Charlie Sheen or Wesley Snipes behind the craft servies table — wasn’t enough to drag more than a few hundred of us Milwaukeeans down to the stadium.

    We spent two days moving from one section to another so that every shot would have full bleachers. And giving Charlie & Wesley jerk-jobs.

  21. I remember when Mike Schmidt was in a slump and a local radio station devised the har-har tongue twister: ‘Mike Schmidt sits and drinks Schlitz’..

  22. [re=559094]Smoke Filled Roommate[/re]: Feel better, you big, mishapen, cancer-pacified baby?

    I’ll be sure to let veteran ever-changing avatar crappers like El Pinche, loquaciousmusic, and bitchincamaro know how bored you are as well.

  23. Jim Newell seems to misunderstand baseball chicks. They are a rather tough breed. Sometimes they ‘like it rough’….or perhaps I’m mistaken…it appears that Jim is posting this pic from a ‘FREEKIN ROLLER DERBY RINK’!!

  24. [re=559094]Smoke Filled Roommate[/re]: [re=559095]Extemporanus[/re]:
    There’s a kind of hush all over the world, tonight
    All over the world you can hear the sounds of lovers in love

  25. Ugh. I have to read 77 snarky comments and still not get an answer to “seriously, what the hell is this graphic even trying to depict?” Maybe it’s a bad crop of larger pic of people cheering. Agree with Way Cool Larry.
