Baseball and the Simpsons

First of all, Congratulations to the Phillies and Yankees on advancing.   Reds and Twins just look like innocent bystanders.    Is a shame, because I wanted to see closer series.  

Did you all catch the Simpsons episode Sunday night titled “Moneybart”?    I thought it was funny.  Bill James voice says “I made baseball as fun as doing your taxes”    Mike Scioscia’s voice is also in the show.  He is riding a roller coaster with Bart when he shows him his three World Series rings, he loses one and says “that is OK, I’ll get another one.”   

Lisa has taken the added responsibiliy of managing  “The Isototes”  to get extra curricular actitiy.  Bart doubts his sister can manage.  Lisa anticipating that says “There have been plenty of females managers in baseball:  Connie Mack, Sandy Alomar, Terry Francona, Pinky Higgins.” 

This reminded me of John, a friend that used to sit in front of me in the Top Deck at Dodger Stadium.  He told me once “Didn’t the Dodgers used to have a woman that broadcasted Dodger games in Brooklyn?.”   I told him no.   Then he said “yes they did, her name was Connie Desmond.”   Linda(BBE) and I started laughing so hard when John said that.     

Yeah, Sandy alomar never managed in the big leagues.  

Here is a link of the episode if you have not seen it.

The Simpsons writers sure are clever.

Jane,
That is the second episode with Mike Scioscia. The first one is where MSTI of Mike Scisocia’s Tragic Illness got his name for his blog. I have a linky for his blog here.

Jenn,
I saw it a second time around too :-) I have to find the one about Mike Sciocia’s tragic illness.

The Simpsons never cease to amaze me. It was even funnier the second time I watched it…lol

Oh wow Mike! how long ago did your aunt passed away? You know today is the last day of Hispanic Month. I don’t know why it starts September 15th and not Sept 1st.
