Thoughts on the CityStyle broadcast

Admittedly, we probably blew out our most salient insights in the comments section of the Drunk Jays Fans' liveblog, but here are a few thoughts on today's broadcast:

-Gord Martineau: It's as if it were the first game that he saw since Willie Upshaw's heyday. Also, really drunk.

-That bald guy with the goatee: His vague attempts at demonstrating his mad baseball knowledge were as fumbly and awkward as a we were running drunken game at a frosh party.

-Kathryn Humphreys: Not nearly as funny as she thinks, but we at least give her credit for busting out with the "Is is awkward in the shower?" question to Gregg Zaun when discussing how hot Alex Rios is. Also, "If you were a pork chop, what sauce would you smother yourself with?" Possibly hung over.

-Barb DiGiulio: Everybody loves Barb after today's game. We totally respect her ability to interview the geriatric snowbird fans without seeming cloying or too hip. Also, kinda milfy hot.

-Patrick Elster, Jays VP of Douchiness: Still evil. Also (as noted by the DJF) looks exactly like Jerry the King Lawler.

It wasn't much of a broadcast, but then again, they had promised us rank amateurism by virtue of the fact that they sent the City crew to do the game. It was really only intended to be an infomercial for the Jays ticket office, and we can get on board with that.

Sweet sweet karma
Early on in today's game, they announced that the phone system for the ticket office went kablooey. Maybe the system wasn't used to receiving calls from the 416/905.

The fan outrage rages on...doesn't it?

Wow. We kinda lost our shit on Friday, didn't we?

It took a full weekend of being strapped down and watching the Game Show Network just to get our heart rate back to normal.

Much thanks goes out to all of those who picked up the torch over the weekend and went about setting Messers Godfrey and Elster ablaze (figuratively, of course), including the DJF, Hum and Chuck, Belong to Rios, Bottom of the Order, Ghostrunner on First and (Best Regards,) John Brattain.

And of course, all of this outrage was obviously picked up by the mainstream media.

Right? Right? Hello?...Is this thing on?

We don't want this to descend into one of those twee blog posts about how the MSM is corrupt and obviously isn't hip to the jive like us bloggers. We're just a little disappointed that after Blair poked the story with a long stick on Friday, nobody touched it. (At least, no one that we saw.)

We could go into a whole new rant, about how the media game is fixed, and how the TV rightsholders didn't want to hurt their relationships and how the birdcage liners didn't want to do anything that would limit their access to the organization.

But that'd be beneath us.

Instead, we'll just send out this Long Distance Dedication to Paul Godfrey, and all the kids in the Jays front office. This is what you get when you mess with us.
