Oh, That Bob!

Reading Bob Carpenter's MASNopus, I was struck by 2 things.  Well, 3 things, though the notion that everything goes back to the Cardinals with him is hardly new.

1) He basically says that Cardinals fans are mindless idiots. (Best fans in baseball, kids!)
2) He acknowledges something we already knew, but it's nice to have confirmation in print: he (and MASN) doesn't try to be objective at all.  He's a fan first, and is going to present the homer take.  (and he apparently thinks he played for the '98 Cards -- maybe that's why he loves Eckstein so much?)

I linked it on the side, but I'll throw it here as well.  This is pretty cool.  It's an ancient image from an electronic scoreboard used to 'show' the game to fans who weren't at the park.  Ever wanted to see what a ghostly electronic Bucky Harris batting in the '24 Series looked like?

  • Yes, enough of the announcers who are fans first, either of the home team in particular or the game in general. Who wants that? Isn't the alternative of sad, bitter old guys like Howard Cosell or self-important douchebags like Tony Kornheiser just so, so much better? NOT.

    (And in honor of Bob Carpenter, my verification word for this comment is cardrant.)

  • Totally and that Scully clown out in CA -- it's like eating saltines just game after game. How am I supposed to enjoy a ballgame without sizzle? What am I supposed to do, provide my own cheering?

  • Pretty ridiculous, the Cards fans are some of the smartest in the league, up their with the Yankees. Silly comment.
