You get this far with the best record in the National League, the home-field advantage and now everyone in the country has good reason to be ticked.Does anybody take TJ Simers seriously? He's not a journalist or a sportswriter, he's an agitator. He relies on his ridiculous insults to create interest and attention. The only people who read his columns, me included, do so because they can't believe that the idiocy he creates gets published by a major media outlet. It's like slowing down and rubbernecking at a car accident. A Simers column is an SUV flipped on it's side and on fire. Useless, but strangely enticing. And then you feel guilty afterward for gawking.
Fox will be broadcasting the World Series and it likes to put the camera on the face of every single fan sitting in the stands, these fans as ugly as any in the country.
Nowhere in America are people more angry than those living here. During Game 3 they had their humorless furry mascot put on boxing gloves and take on someone who was supposed to be an L.A. fan, sunglasses, cellphone and all. The furry mascot punched him out, much to the delight of the folks here who love a dash of violence with their sports entertainment. Same tired skits, by the way, they employed a year ago.
But this is considered entertainment here, the only bright spot if they draw the Yankees now, getting a look in the mirror at fans who might remind them of themselves.
He can't really mean the things he says. It's impossible. That wrinkled old loser can't really call an entire fanbase ugly. He mentioned mirrors later in the piece so I assume he's looked at one. Other people ugly?
And to call out the Phanatic for doing the same old shtick. Child, please. The Phanatic is supposed to do the same old shtick. Would this idiot criticize the circus for continuing to have clowns? And worse, Simers is the epitome of a "tired skit". Passive aggressive questioning to athletes and childlike insults never seem to get old to him. What's good for the goose should be good for the douche.
But it must be said, he is successful. He once again lured me in to these stupid arguments. I doubt I'm alone, too. And he is correct on one of his points. Yankees fans do remind me of Phillies fans, at least more than the Dodger fans do, because they've also seen a WFC trophy in the last twenty years.
