Wish I'd Thought Of That One
I can't say that I follow baseball all that closely (living in Pittsburgh will do that to you) and I find the media's obsessive coverage of the Red Sox-Yankee rivalry pathetic--it's the battle between the Bad Guys and the Worse Guys.
Still, the Yankees signing Roger Clemens elicited a fantastic one-liner from one of Bill Simmons' readers
. In an act of stupendous self-regard Clemens yesterday announced to the crowd in the middle of the game
that he was signing with the moribund Yanks. Which inspired this line from a John F. in Kansas:
"This is historic ... who ever heard of a rat jumping ON a sinking ship?"
