Boston Sports Monsters Allegedly Boo President’s Recorded Video Message

by Jim Newell

President Obama is definitely a jerk, now. Why did he record a video message today praising the Boston Red Sox, their fans, and their stadium, when all of those things are pure evil? The President should be ashamed to associate himself with such a diabolical Hitler-y terrorist organization that hates happiness, and freedom. It’s not like those people are capable of appreciating friendly compliments, anyway. Because according to the never-wrong Twitter machine, the daytime-drunk fans booed when Obama’s message played on the Jumbotron at today’s Fenway Park 100th Anniversary game. Where’s the news? This is what Boston sports fans do when they see any person.

We’re still waiting for cell-phone videos of this booing to materialize. You can be sure that when they do, the echoing boos will be muted by the ceaseless lunatic screaming of the morons shooting the videos. (“SO YOU THINK YOUAH SPECIAL, COLLEGE BOY? BOO EHH DONUTS…”) Until then, here’s some classic footage from 2008, when Sarah Palin’s handlers apparently thought that Philadelphia Flyers fans were polite people.

A politician booed? NEVER!

Barb April 20, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Q: What do the Red Sox and lawn furniture have in common?
A: They both fold and end up in the cellar after Labor Day!

DrunkIrishman April 20, 2012 at 5:24 pm

So, kinda like the pending Romney campaign?

Tundra Grifter April 20, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Patio furniture?

Doktor StrangeZoom April 20, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Paddy O'Furniture?

Tundra Grifter April 20, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Too subtle.

glasspusher April 20, 2012 at 11:38 pm

2004 and 2007 ;)

thebeatgoeson April 21, 2012 at 12:36 am

Booooooooooooooo!!!

Barb April 20, 2012 at 5:24 pm

The Palin appearance at the Flyers game was staged with piped-in cheers. Trust me, I am a Flyers fan, I am wearing a Flyers jersey right now and I am having a party tonight when the game starts. People in Philadelphia hate her.

vulpes82 April 20, 2012 at 5:27 pm

I didn't know you were a Philly girl, Barb! Bryz better step it up tonight!

Barb April 20, 2012 at 5:33 pm

Are you a fan, Vulpes82?

vulpes82 April 20, 2012 at 11:04 pm

I come from a very Flyered up family. They better bring it Sunday! It's a noon game, Barb, FYI.

Steverino247 April 20, 2012 at 5:43 pm

So, when does the Flyers jersey come OFF. That's what we want to know…

Barb April 20, 2012 at 5:59 pm

I switched to a Flyers t-shirt. I have to fry chicken wings and make the rest of the food now.

Lascauxcaveman April 20, 2012 at 6:28 pm

I'm backing the Canucks, for the moment. I'm close enough to Vancouver BC to watch their local newscasts, and it's so fun to watch the city of Vancouver go completely batshit after their team cruises through the regular season, thoroughly kicking everyone's ass, and then fumbles and bumbles its way through the playoffs, in constant threat of being eliminated. Rending of garments, tearing of hair, oaths sworn to God and the Devil, etc etc. The whole of British Columbia are all on suicide watch even as we speak.

sullivanst April 20, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Being of an Islander persuasion, I find myself compelled to support whoever the Flyers are against.

So "go… err… lemme check quickly… Pens!" ;)

(P.S., you forgot the burning of cars. Or do they only do that when they win?)

Biel_ze_Bubba April 20, 2012 at 6:16 pm

"Staged" being the operative word. The Dems, to their credit, fail abysmally at thinking that way

donner_froh April 20, 2012 at 6:17 pm

Flyers fans hate everyone.

Fare la Volpe April 20, 2012 at 6:25 pm

People in America hate her.

Barb April 20, 2012 at 6:30 pm

I love Fare.

Pithaughn April 20, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Just replay the ovation us mile highs gave him in Denver to cheer up with.

YasserArraFeck April 21, 2012 at 2:06 am

Sorry Barb – someone forgot to give the Penguins the memo

Quayle2012_KNOT April 21, 2012 at 10:22 am

Did you know an anagram for Sidney Crosby is Disney Cry Sob?

HarryButtle April 21, 2012 at 11:50 am

Broad Street Barb!

sullivanst April 21, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Of course, if you wanted to pick a venue where Sarah Palin (or any other Goober pretty much) was most likely to be roundly booed, you'd pick any Philadelphia team, or maybe the Knicks or my beloved Mets – fanbases that boo their own players (or even Santa Claus) at that drop of a hat from cities that vote overwhelmingly Democratic.

Kinda makes you suspect.

MissNancyPriss April 21, 2012 at 12:20 pm

also a flyers phan.

coolhandnuke April 20, 2012 at 5:24 pm

Buckner should have delivered the message.

Doktor StrangeZoom April 20, 2012 at 5:53 pm

Buckner sold Chryslers here in Idaho until the dealership closed in 2008.

Oh, wait, I don't have a joke.

He's apparently still churlish about that one thing.

coolhandnuke April 20, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Bucky "Fucking" Dent might be a better messenger.

Biel_ze_Bubba April 20, 2012 at 6:20 pm

And/or Aaron F. Boone.

I think Buckner got forgiven, finally, after 2004 — he got cheered at the 2005 presentation of the rings. He's been elevated in status to just one of the many who labored so long in futility. (If they were still looking for that first title, of course, he'd still be dirt.)

Speaking of which, I'm off to the Mets game tonite, to cheer on the Giants. Later!

horsedreamer_1 April 22, 2012 at 7:17 pm

Buckner wasn't asked to appear 'til '08, after the second Series win. Just in case the first was a fluke.

Callyson April 20, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Yankee fans, pipe down–I can hear the "Boston Sucks!" chants all the way out here in Los Angeles…

Oh, OK, OK, just this once…

Schmannnity April 20, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Maybe he shouldn't have worn that White Sox hat in the video.

GOPCrusher April 20, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Ask Jim Rice about how friendly Red Sox fans are.

OzoneTom April 20, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Scott Brown needs to try this.

BklynIlluminati April 20, 2012 at 5:26 pm

If Tom Yawkey where alive NObama would have had to use the service entrance let alone appear on the Jumbotron. GO YANKEES!

glasspusher April 20, 2012 at 11:40 pm

Sad but true! Yawkey was a racist good old boy- and the sox never won any World Series under his ownership. Glad that's over. Go Sox!

Chichikovovich April 20, 2012 at 5:31 pm

I'm beginning to realize Bishop Janky had a point. This is just like the times that Hitler or Stalin made appearances at public events and people booed and heckled them openly and fearlessly. Obama really is a dictator.

Doktor StrangeZoom April 20, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Bishop Yankee?

Boojum April 20, 2012 at 6:21 pm

"No more yanky my wanky, the Donger needs food!"

George Spelvin April 21, 2012 at 1:33 am

Oh, you and your …… reality.

It'll never catch on.

coolhandnuke April 20, 2012 at 5:31 pm

In Boston they like their monsters green not blah.

Exhausted66 April 20, 2012 at 5:32 pm

A blah guy not welcome in Fenway?

This is not news.

sbj1964 April 20, 2012 at 5:33 pm

The Bean Town Boo'ers? Barry did not come in person because most people in Boston would rather be some where else.

starfanglednut April 20, 2012 at 5:33 pm

Now I haz an embarrassed.

The sports fans, who come from all over New England, are obnoxious/from Southie.

But Boston is a lovely, civilized town full of liberals, frighteningly smart college kids, and married queers, I swear.

Pithaughn April 20, 2012 at 6:39 pm

I have a button I got in Boston, " Dip me in honey and throw me to the lesbians".
Good times.

starfanglednut April 21, 2012 at 9:33 am

I live here, and I know exactly one republican. That has to be good for something.

flamingpdog April 20, 2012 at 5:33 pm

Well, duh, I mean, RED Sox? We all know those Commies hate National Socialists like out Preznit Bammers.

Crank_Tango April 20, 2012 at 5:52 pm

You know who else…oh wait.

Doktor StrangeZoom April 20, 2012 at 5:54 pm

National League socialists?

edgydrifter April 20, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Did Fehrnstrom bring his fucking Etch-A-Sketch to the game?

Schmannnity April 20, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Like Marge Schott, maybe Fenway doesn't like "million dollar N**gers."

flamingpdog April 20, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Cranky note to Rebecca: I'm tired of being comment 15 instead of comment 3 because Intense Debate runs some sort of crappy "script" that causes my computer to run slow and refuse to post my comment! End of rant, carry on.

Jukesgrrl April 20, 2012 at 5:36 pm

Sarah Palin tweeted: Boston, the birthplace of democracy. One if by Jumbotron, two if by U.N. helicopter.

GorzoTheMighty April 20, 2012 at 5:37 pm

No wonder. The curse of the Bambino lives on.

anniegetyerfun April 20, 2012 at 5:38 pm

Wait, is someone suggesting that Boston Redsox fans are assholes? This is the first time I have heard any such thing!

Biel_ze_Bubba April 20, 2012 at 6:14 pm

Mint Mormoney would have gotten the same, and probably worse. Folks come to the ballpark to get away from politics. Just wasn't a good idea, period.

biblioteq_tress April 20, 2012 at 7:32 pm

True. I am a typical angst ridden, schadenfreude having, insert german word here verbing Sox fan but I do not, ever, go to Fenway to experience "classy behavior on a lovely afternoon." Double that for a Sox-Yankees game. Any politician, whether I like him/her or not, who shows up at Fenway will get shit. Remember John Kerry throwing out the first pitch? Sadly, as lefties tend to be slightly more polite in social situations if not on blogs, Democrats will catch a little more grief than Republicans.
The last Sox/yanks game I went to was on a Sunday afternoon midsummer so, naturally, lots of kids were there. In 2004, gods help me. About a dozen seats away a guy in his late thirties began yelling obscenities involving Yankees players engaging in sphincter stretches with their Series rings, with each other, with his own grandma, with a bag of bats, et cetera. Amazingly, after six innings or so, he got kicked out. You almost have to launch a missile from your seat to be kicked out of a Sox-Yankees game. Until security escorted his ass out I had not realized he had his two young sons with him.

Biel_ze_Bubba April 21, 2012 at 6:33 am
biblioteq_tress April 21, 2012 at 7:08 am

indeed. A reminder that assholes aren't born, but trained.

Tundra Grifter April 20, 2012 at 5:39 pm

One of the first rules of politics is to never introduce your candidate at a sporting event.

It's pretty much guaranteed the fans will boo. Why? Because they can.

Guppy April 20, 2012 at 5:54 pm

Considering the price of tickets nowadays, they're entitled to take a little liberty.

Tundra Grifter April 20, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Guppy:

I have no problem with fans booing people who have nothing to do with the game.

Heck, I was at Candlestick Park when Alan Ginsberg read a "tone poem" before a game. Talk about booing! You woulda thought Old Lassagna Breath himself, Tommy Lasorda, was trapsing across the infield.

The only time I think players should be boo'd is for an obvious lack of effort.

Regarding Mr. Obama, I was just pointing out it's not exactly news that a politician got boo'd at a baseball game. I'm going to guess the last elected official who didn't get that treatment at the ballyard was Gentleman Jimmy Walker.

BlueStateLibel April 20, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Or have your death announced. I was at Belmont Racetrack on Belmont Stakes Day when it was announced the Gipper had passed, which was followed by silence and a guy loudly doing a Loony Tunes laughing impression. A fitting end, but kind of in bad taste, he could have died on some other day, Smarty Jones had a big shot at winning the Triple Crown that day.

MissNancyPriss April 21, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Awesome, totally awesome.

flamingpdog April 20, 2012 at 5:39 pm

They should have had McCain record a video instead. He was there for opening day in 1912.

ManchuCandidate April 20, 2012 at 5:44 pm

Plus he's into crashing and burning. Like the Red Sox.

ManchuCandidate April 20, 2012 at 5:43 pm

Boourns?

Generation[redacted] April 20, 2012 at 6:05 pm

I was saying boo-urns.

flamingpdog April 20, 2012 at 5:44 pm

Jumbotron? They named a TeeVee screen after Lyndon Johnson's johnson?

biblioteq_tress April 20, 2012 at 7:33 pm

Did LBJ's peter eat peanuts?

Blueb4sunrise April 20, 2012 at 5:44 pm

Who was in the stands? No jobs people?

SayItWithWookies April 20, 2012 at 5:49 pm

That's gutsy for Catholics — I'll bet President Obama sent them all to the gas chambers.

Generation[redacted] April 20, 2012 at 6:07 pm

According to a noted historian, tolerating the catholic church was one of hitler's finer moments.

GOPCrusher April 20, 2012 at 5:49 pm

Today is the 100th birthday of Fenway Park.

Doktor StrangeZoom April 20, 2012 at 5:49 pm

I bet this guy was there.

anniegetyerfun April 20, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Well, this whole "being a nice and polite President" thing seems to be going over swimmingly!

iburl April 20, 2012 at 5:55 pm

Government whistle blowers, Afghanis, Pakistanis and Gitmo former-humans may beg to differ with the "nice and polite" part.

YasserArraFeck April 21, 2012 at 2:07 am

Yeah – it's fucking Boston – what do you expect?

Doktor StrangeZoom April 20, 2012 at 5:54 pm

If only he'd learned to say "chowdah."

OneYieldRegular April 20, 2012 at 5:56 pm

Maybe they were just booing him because he's from Chicago?

Generation[redacted] April 20, 2012 at 6:08 pm

That would assume some kind of geography-based sports affiliation. Is it possible?

Doktor StrangeZoom April 20, 2012 at 6:23 pm
weejee April 20, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Too many Bostonian half-baked beans.

KennyFuckingPowers April 20, 2012 at 6:07 pm

largest mass booing in the history of mankind was Jan 20th 2009 at 11:50 a.m. in DC when the Obama faithful reacted to the wheeling out of one Dick Cheney. The mere sight of him on the jumbo was enough to unite 2 million people in unison to BOOOOOOOOO!.
I have heard the roar of the crowd and that one gave me chill bumps. Then the next moving moment was the about 1 million who Na Na, Na Na Na, Hey Hey, Goodbyed Bush on Marine One. Awesome, fuckin' awesome.

biblioteq_tress April 20, 2012 at 7:36 pm

I remember that! Although I was still stuck in the crowd outside security in the Penn Quarter. Trying not to freeze, or pee on myself. I succeded at one of those.

finallyhappy April 20, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Speaking of booing, my family has a very good chance of seeing/meeting my close personal friends(whom I have only seen at a distance), Barack, Michelle and Bo tomorrow- while I have to work. I am not happy.

flamingpdog April 20, 2012 at 6:27 pm

So … you're saying there's an upside to being unemployed?

biblioteq_tress April 20, 2012 at 7:38 pm

Oooh, tell them to ask him for a nuclear sub! I want a nuclear sub.

Biel_ze_Bubba April 20, 2012 at 6:11 pm

I could have told him not to wear that damned Yankees cap.

Fare la Volpe April 20, 2012 at 6:29 pm

You mean guys who can't even spell the plural of "sock" are kind of dumb assholes?

Nawwwwww.

Goonemeritus April 20, 2012 at 6:29 pm

As a New Yorker I would like to say for the record fuck Boston, fuck their fans and fuck all their sports teams which could more accurately be described as criminal enterprises.

Edit– I think the cities curling club is OK but that's it!

biblioteq_tress April 20, 2012 at 7:41 pm

As a Bostonian, I expect a citizen of a city that tolerated George Steinbrenner, a man so morally bankrupt he was arrested for being Nixon's back alley sugardaddy, to say something like that.

Goonemeritus April 20, 2012 at 8:15 pm

Well played but lets not fight I think we can all agree that at least neither of us is from New Jersey.

biblioteq_tress April 21, 2012 at 7:10 am

The horror. Agreed.

James Michael Curley April 21, 2012 at 8:12 am

Hey! I heard that. Remember despite the title; Snooker, BowWOW and The Waistband are all New Yorkers.

rocktonsam April 20, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Cripes, Boston Red Sox Fans, you will always be assholes.

BZ1 April 20, 2012 at 6:55 pm

Boston, home of the champs, fans, not so much …

StanleyPain2 April 20, 2012 at 7:15 pm

Obama was booed, therefore HITLER.

owhatever April 20, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Obama smiled at the poor darlings, said he was sorry they were off to a four and nine start this season and reminded that they will always have the warm memory of Bucky Fucking Dent.

Aridzona April 20, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Ah, sportsmanship.

pinkocommi April 20, 2012 at 9:47 pm

In the Red Sox fans' defense, Obama deserves to be booed for pretending to be a fan of the White Sox.

Sparky McGruff April 20, 2012 at 10:00 pm

They weren't booing, they were just chanting "Bruuuuuce! Bruuuuuuuuuuce!"

Negropolis April 20, 2012 at 10:04 pm

Oh, just STFU you redneck, baybilly lobsterbacks.

BTW, Imma let you finish, Boston, but Philadelphia sports fans are the most boorish evah.

Negropolis April 20, 2012 at 10:20 pm

Also, apropos of nothing: Fuck the Texas Rangers and the Dubya they rode in on. Also.

flamingpdog April 21, 2012 at 1:33 am

Little known fact: The Washington Senators' owner who moved the team to Texas, Bob Short, served as treasurer of the Democratic National Committee during Hubert Humphrey's presidential campaign. He was so reviled in DC that, according to the Wiki, "During the Washington Nationals' final game at RFK Stadium on September 23, 2007, a similar scene unfolded. Nationals' fans unrolled a series of three banners vertically spelling out "Short Still Stinks", in nearly the same place in the stadium that the two [similar] banners hung 36 years earlier [during the Senators last game in 1971]". Short died in 1982. He had a lot to do with me never registering as a Democrat until 2008. Asshole.

biblioteq_tress April 21, 2012 at 12:51 pm

Did Dubya ever reimburse the kind folks of Arlington TX for the crapwads of dough he finagled out of them for the stadium?

JackObin April 20, 2012 at 10:37 pm

Ignore baseball. It gives Little Georgie Will a boner.

ttommyunger April 22, 2012 at 9:44 am

Yeah, all but the middle inch.

Come here a minute April 20, 2012 at 10:38 pm

What's the difference between Fenway Park hot dogs and Yankee Stadium hot dogs?

You can get Yankee Stadium hot dogs in October.

(This joke killed before 2004.)

Redgyal April 20, 2012 at 11:05 pm

Newell, you're overcompensating.

DemmeFatale April 20, 2012 at 11:45 pm

Then the Yankees won the baseball game, 6-2.
That's all.

biblioteq_tress April 21, 2012 at 12:53 pm

And though I am a skeptic and atheist, I cannot help but see the middle finger of baseball fortune in that.

io9k9s April 21, 2012 at 12:30 am

I am shocked…shocked! …#redsoxfans #boos #president

George Spelvin April 21, 2012 at 1:40 am

So, this Fehrnstrom fellow. Isn't he some kind of "campaign guy" for one of the Republican opponents of the President?

Should we be surprised that he would portray this event in the most negative-to-the- President way possible?

IceCreamEmpress April 21, 2012 at 12:57 pm

Fehrnstrom is a lying liar who lies. The Brother, who was there, said it was 80/20 yays to boos, which is probably an accurate predictor of the Hopey v. Mittens results in the Fall Classic.

SpeedoFart April 21, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Who the fuck cares what those liberal, lobstah-eatin' elitists think?

ttommyunger April 22, 2012 at 9:45 am

Boos or muffled bean-farts? Wonkette reports, you decide.

Allmighty_Manos April 23, 2012 at 9:00 am

No one here has mentioned our totally awesome Capitals fans.

neiltheblaze April 23, 2012 at 9:24 am

Ironically, Obama will win Massachusetts by at least 20% in November.

Lascauxcaveman April 20, 2012 at 7:46 pm

Riot after game seven, regardless of result (see 2011.)

Barb April 20, 2012 at 8:14 pm

Goal #2, Sullivanist!

sullivanst April 20, 2012 at 11:35 pm

Ah yes of course. I struggle to remember which car burning incidents are related to which results for which teams sometimes :P Although I do find that when in doubt, UWV hoops is probably a good guess.
