Some good lines, especially about the Journey mania and baseball being boring. I guess you don't expect players to say that kind of stuff.

How hard is it to 'D' up Nash? It's not too bad. He's fast. All he does is run around in circles.

Don't know why I found this funny, but I did. :D:

Meh...I'm not thrilled about a White Sox player saying that "baseball's kind of boring." Interesting though, if any Sox player were to say that, I'd guess it would be Dye.

How much do I love Jermaine Dye? Let me count the ways.........

Sick and tired of Journey? Let me just say, in no uncertain terms, THANK YOU! I get why the chorus of the song was popular for the team, "don't stop believin'" but for sobbing out loud, Steve Perry grates, and the song is just plain irratating. Glad I'm not the only one.

The only way I could love him more was if he was playing basketball with the Bulls, instead of the Suns. But I guess you go where the game is. Can't Jerry line him up with some pick-up games with Wallace? :redneck

Nice to hear JD open it up a little; he's always had a reputation for being serious and reticent. He didn't go Ozzie Guillen in the interview, but that's OK. You are who you are.

Hell, he's right: baseball CAN be boring at times. If the score is 8-1 in the fifth, my eyes are not usually glued to the screen; especially if the Sox are losing. And as a right fielder, there can be a lot of dead time even during a game.

And I agree with DDD: I too was tired of "Don't Stop Believing" in a hurry. Glad I'm not the only one. I don't think Dye was the only player sick of it either.

Especially when Fabulous Freddy Garcia is on the mound, taking two minutes between each pitch, and you know he's just going to give up the lead anyway. :(:

"Don't Stop Believin'" was the song of 2005. It should only be heard when the 2005 videos are played, IMO.

What's a good song for 2006, I wonder??

Keep in mind that to most professional athletes it's a job just like your job is just a job. They are paid extremely well for a unique skill, but day in and day out they go to work just like the rest of us. Baseball is kind of boring to play compared to basketball where there is action and movement all game.

You meant to put that in teal, right? RIGHT?

That song should have gone in the "songs that drive you crazy" thread in the PL, but it's so horrendous and so typical of 70s schmaltz that most radio stations won't touch it. Thank God.

May I be the first to suggest "It's Hard" by The Who??
As in: It's hard for teams to win back to back championships.

I thought it was pretty funny that he watches "Elimidate". It's hard to picture that. :D:

I like Blind Date as well, the one with the "thought bubbles" popping up....anything is better than Cheaters, that show is so self-righteous and ridiculous.

And there was one with PG-13 level "stripping" going on, but it's been off the air for quite some time. Can't even remember the name of it.
