View Full Version : Well, chap my butt and call me chappy

I read the latest from Jay M. the other day. He gurgles his usual
praise of his favorite adopted team and goes on to say that the
possibility of Mark Prior starting the All-Star game would "chap
the butts" of Sox fans at the Cell.

That brings up an interesting point. If Mark P. does start the
All-Star game, will it chap your butt? I admit it won't chap mine,
mainly because I'll be concerned about other things, like where
the Sox will be in the standings and other important stuff. Also,
I'm quite thin, so there isn't much there to be chapped, anyway.

It is something to think about. Very, very thought-provoking.
If any of your butts do get chapped (I'm open to that chilling
possibility) I know what to do about it. I'll bring to the game
a large hunk of "Chap Butt." It's like chapstick, only better. It
comes in large blocks that you can either sit on or rub on your
behind to ease the discomfort that Jay Mariotti foresees all Sox fans suffering. Do NOT mistake it for chapstick. It is strictly for
use on your butt. That ought to make our suffering and pain
much easier.

One last thing. If you have any left over after the game and
don't know what to do with it, send it on to Jay Mariotti. He
could use what's left to rub on his head.

The first paragraph and a half brought up an interesting point. Being a diehard southsider, I would say, it would gnaw at me if the NL had a Flubbie starting pitcher. I don't know if it would "chap my butt", but it would be like salt in a wound. Here's hoping Millwood can throw another no-hitter in order to solidify the NL starting spot. :gulp:

Now, as to the rest of your post, just plain disturbing! :o:

Mark Prior could throw a 45-inning perfect game at the All-Star Game at U.S. Cellular Field and I wouldn't care all that much because the All-Star Game is, for the most part, meaningless.

But I guess in Cubdom, its the meaningless that matters most.

Don't Flubs players usually wilt under the pressure of the national spotlight?

Whatever, I like Prior -- bully for him if he gets to start. Maybe Maggs can take him deep just like he did with Lieber...

Has anyone Noticed how Mariotti ( more importantly, representing the views of the MEDIA) is really not just sqawking his views, but moreso, hes trying to PLANT THE SEED among fans to have his favorite Cub, Mark "greed amateur athlete" Prior start the game? Knowing the sheeplike audience in chicago will now begin calling on the radio shows and saying how theyd love to have him start the game, 1st cub in a long long time to start an allstar game blah blah blah. Then around June, Mariotti will slip cover, and start to write articles how the FANS want Prior to start the game (even though he/media planted this info). Chicago Media......Hard at Work
