It Hurts Me, Too

This current 3-15 stretch by the Giants has been about as agonizing a period for fans of the Orange and Black as I can remember. Of the 15 losses that started with the 6-5 loss to the Padres on July 23 featuring the first of three consecutive blown saves by Blownitez, 10 of the 15 losses have been by one run. I would like to think that bad breaks -- such as Greg Maddux' lucky snag tonight of Bonds shot in the first inning tonight -- have contributed somewhat this ongoing awfulness. It also means that the Padres are about to suffer big time.

So, as the tens of readers of this blog know, another Giants loss means another posting of appropriate song lyrics -- "It Hurts Me, Too" by Elmore James:

You said you was hurting, almost lost your mind,
And the man you love, he hurts you all the time.
When things go wrong, go wrong with you, it hurts me, too.

You love him more when you should love him less.
I pick up behind him and take his mess.
When things go wrong, go wrong with you, it hurts me, too.

He love another woman and I love you,
But you love him and stick to him like glue.
When things go wrong, go wrong with you, it hurts me, too.

Now you better leave him; he better put you down.
Oh, I wont stand to see you pushed around.
When things go wrong, go wrong with you, it hurts me, too.

One of the more annoying trends in recent years at "Ebbets Field" is the scoreboard operator's propensity to urge the lame fans who regularly root for the hated Blue (aka the most overrated franchise in sports) to "MAKE SOME NOISE," as if the crowd summoning up the energy to scream is going to have any kind of difference in the outcome of the game.

A better suggestion would be to "PUT AWAY THE FUCKING BEACH BALLS."

And would it kill the Parking Lot Attendent to hire some concession stand workers who don't take half an inning to pour a beer and fetch a dog?
