I love the last line...

"Can any of them play CF?"

I will make sure someone asks Joe Cowley about this next time he is on at the Score.

My husband told me about this last night - he had heard about it on the radio. Oh, that just makes me laugh that they're too afraid to stay on the fifth floor, and it especially cracked me up that A.J. would stay there.

Of course, even though I don't believe in such things, I would be afraid if I were staying on that floor. Just because I'm a chicken in general.

Oh, I also love the part about how Brian Anderson is rooming alone this year like a Big Boy...but in the new, unhaunted part of the hotel.

I would have asked if anyone can drive in runners that are in scoring position with less than two outs.

But that's just me

So that's why the Sox couldn't get any of the runners in scoring position home last night! It wasn't bad hitting.... it was fear!! :o:

That just reminded me who Carlos Quentin looks like. I've been trying to think of this forever. The Grusomes from those late Flintstones episodes.

Yeah, that would be like one of those God vs. mini-Ditka arguments on the Superfans sketch on SNL.

What if a lefty is on the mound that night? Can AJ fight as a southpaw?

Is this heaven?

No it's some crappy hotel in Florida.

Maybe AJ will get so scared his hair will turn black.

I love this stuff. The power of the human mind to be persuaded never ceases to amaze me.

My brother's best friend works for tbS sports and did our playoff series with the rays (got me free playoff tix :cool:) He said that when the sox were in tampa, Ozzie woke Kenny up in the middle of the night to check if his room was haunted...something with the ceiling fan moving or something with out being on. I said it was prolly BA in the room above dancing with some chick:rolleyes:

Sounds like the hotel owners are trying to drum up some hype for their hotel so that people who love ghost stories will want to stay and therefore spend $$$ money there.

intersting that players keep checking into that hotel and no other one does the team choose the hotels or can players choose? I never heard of this but makes me actually want to go and check out the place to makesure the place isnt setup on purpose just to scare people, possibly things hidden in the walls. On the video they say players are put on the 5th floor on purpose so it makes me wonder :scratch:

Wasnt there a report about the hotel last season on CSN?

I have stayed at the Vinoy numerous times for weddings and visiting family. No ghost stories here, but it has that nice historical feeling about the place.
