The game isn't over but I'm in a bad mood and I'm getting sick of Mike Krukow. How many times did he say "Gumby shoulders" tonight? What the fuck are Gumby shoulders? Gumby doesn't have any shoulders! I think once long ago he said it and everybody laughed even though they had no idea what he meant. Gumby's funny, right? So I thought maybe it's a well-known figure of speech in some circles, so I googled it, but - nothing!
And that ball Burrell misplayed in the left field corner- he said it was like Skee Ball. Well no it wasn't, I love to play Skee Ball and it was nothing like Skee Ball. Balls don't take funny sideways bounces in Skee Ball, they make lovely parbolas.
And I hate, absolutely hate the way he says "refreshing beer" in the Coors promo he does every game. Did he get instructions from Coors, did they tell him "Oh, by the way Kruk, when you get to the "refreshing beer" part we want you to say it like the most obnoxious man in the world would say it. Like you were just daring people to punch you in the mouth."
