Did anyone go to Sox Fest last year??? They had a lot of Sox players go up there and get their picture taken w/ the 2000 Division Champs Flag. They announce Kip Wells' name and he's wearing a SHINY NEON GREEN SHIRT and some RECTANGLE BLACK PLASTIC GLASSES. Me and my friends died laughing when we saw him. We were like "AHHHHH!!! What a wiener!!!!!!!"
He looked like a complete nerd.

Is this a justifiable reason to hate Kip and be happy to see him go???????? I think it is!!!

Plus, Kip was only 20-21 w/ a 5.14 ERA in his career. He was a hyped up phenom that turned out to be average. I really don't think Kip is anything that special.

Here's what Kip said about joining the Bucs:
"I'm excited," said Wells. "Initially everyone from my agent all the way down said that the first time you get traded is always a little shocking because you have been with one team the whole time.

"I'm happy about the opportunity that I am going to have in Pittsburgh and about the guys that are coming over with me. They have a new ballpark and some good young players and some good young veterans that have been around long enough to have established themselves in a short amount of time like [Brian] Giles and [Jason] Kendall have."

Also, Lowe was a stud, sad to see him go, but I'm excited about Ritchie. I think he'll have a lot more success w/ the Sox.

i agree--no room for shiny green shirt wearers on this team! I'm guessing Ritchie is more in to flat colors and should fit right in.

Good one, Red, digging out the ol' Beavis and Butthead graphic. There are so many tags, I can't keep track of them anymore.

Whose job is it to organize those things, anyway? :smile:

Why is it Bmr's PERSONAL DUTY to disagree w/ everyone on everything. He is so argumentative and sarcastic. I's not just this thread, it's every one. Why are you so negative and pessimistic about everything?

And I didn't say this just b/c you replied like that on this thread, but you're a grouch on every thread. What's the deal, man???

Bmr's mission in life is to prove that everyone except him is wrong.

LOL. Negative is putting a guy down for how he looks. Kip wells is obviously more successful than you, and yet you make fun of him? Thats sad. A grouch? negative? Me? now THATS funny, lol. im probably one of the most positive, happy human being you will ever run across...

making fun of kip wells is deep rooted jealousy of his success. Being mad at arod, for the money he makes is jealousy. Saying the yankees are bad for baseball is jealousy. THose are 3 examples i can think of...

i was meaning that you sometimes love to play the devils advocate and by you own words, never accept when you are proven wrong, at least in that person opinion.

i was there and i saw him in his gay shiny shirt and i made fun of him too. anyone in a shiny green shirt is a dork and i will laugh at them just for the fact that shiny green shirts look really stupid. and we also made fun of sirotka the year before at sox fest cuz he looked like a total dork with his highlights in his hair and his stupid coat he was wearing. i like anyone when they are in their sox unifoprm but when they look like backstreet boys i cant help but laugh.
