The '06 season is a month old and while the Yanks have gotten off to a very medicore start (how 'bout those Reds) this isn't what this post is about. It also won't be about their inability to win a game at night -- or ARod's total lack of clutch hitability -- or to wonder why, for heaven's sake -- did the Yanks ever sign Jaret Wright and his 7.20 ERA (is that a million for every earned run?)
Instead it will be about how much I totally despise Michael Kay. Do you know why I enjoyed last weekends games vs. Toronto? Not only 'cause the Yanks took 2 out of 3 but because that arrogant pompous dickhead had the weekend off! As much as I love Jim Kaat (soooo much) I hate Michael Kay. Couldn't stand him when he was on the radio (with that other self-important self-absorbed asshole, John Sterling) and I can't stand him on TV. He states the obvious, doesn't know when to shut the hell up, and tries to make everything into a drama. Just hearing his voice raises my blood pressure. If Kitty isn't on the broadcast I'll watch the game w/the sound off -- and if he is, I try to tune MK out (virtually impossible). I'm constantly yelling "shut up you stupid asshole" at the TV. And yet? He continues to blather on. Guess what Michael? I hate you more than I hate David Ortiz.
Rant over. Please feel free to move about the cabin.
