“19-08″

A good chant to drown out those obnoxious Cubs fans. Hey Braves management, why not help us out with some music (the chop, something, anything …) next time the opposing team’s fans get too vocal.

And don’t even think about playing “Sweet Caroline” this weekend, ’cause if you do, someone’s going to get hurt. Probably me.

  1. If they play Sweet Caroline, I hope it turns into a PR nightmare.

  2. OK… how great is this? Went to the Cubs game last night and I was sitting like three rows behind the Cubs on-deck circle. I could have had conversations with Lou Piniella and Alan Trammel if I so chose. Anyhow, after the Cubs had runners on 1st and 2nd against Vazquez (in like the 6th maybe?), Vazquez went on to walk the next batter to load the bases. “LET’S GO CUBBIES!,” was all I could hear – especially where I was sitting. Vazquez goes on to get Blanco to fly out and keep the shutout going. That’s when I stood, turned around and chanted “1908!” repeatedly until the home team came to the plate. Then came the 9th inning and Milton Bradley comes to the on-deck circle. He was taking some practice swings between innings and I happened to yell, “Hey Milton, there’s NOBODY out! Don’t throw the ball in the right field stands this time!” at him. And without so much as a hint of hesitation, he turned to see who said it and quickly found me. He yelled a few obscenities at me and told me to “watch this shit right here.” I told him to bring it on and he promptly went to the dish and struck out. Of course he then heard about it on his slow walk back to the dugout as I yelled, “Hey Milton, there’s ONE OUT. You just STRUCK OUT at home plate!” Surprisingly enough, he didn’t fling his bat at me…

    I can’t believe you weren’te escorted from the premises for cheering too loudly.

    Yeah, me too. I think that Turner Field attendants are instructed to only throw out the rowdy hometown fans – I know I’ve gotten a talking to before (after getting into it with an old Yankee-lovin’ grandpa who threatened to “kick my ass” in front of his grandson).

  5. I thoroughly enjoyed last night as well, except I was with my girlfriend and another couple, who are Cubs fans, so I had to be on my best behavior. Good thing they at least weren’t annoying Cubs fans, and we were also surrounded by mostly Braves fans…

    I also noticed that Milton Bradley was walking back to the dugout with his head hung low after striking out…

  6. Duane you have the eternal respect of the Office. Caz, you need to break up with your GF (kidding).

    Duane, good show. Reminds me of a funny exchange a friend had with Rickey Henderson during the ’99 LCS here. Ricky had gone 0-for-4 the game before, and this guy was ribbing him about it. Rickey says, “O-for-foh don’t mean nothing,” and then goes on about how much money he’d made playing ball. Classic.

    Sadly, they play Sweet Caroline at the G-Braves games. Duane, well done. That’s some quality heckling right there.
