...and damn was it sweet. Ok so I was watching it for D-train and The big unit, so sue me. But, even being the Marlin hater that I am, this team is starting to grow on me. Anyway, great game and I would love to see the Marlins get the wild card.
T-minus 2 days till Lou Pinella throws another tantrum.
You'd figure any Marlins attendance record must include the World Series from 1997, but still....gotta love those Fish. I'm hoping Dontrelle doesn't become Mark Fidrych version 2.0
(edited by Big Bad on 31.7.03 0043) All right, I'm enjoying Rhyno's "man-beast" gimmick: He keeps his hair long, wears full-body wrestling tights with a big "R" on the back and uses the "Rhino Gore" as his finishing move. Can't you imagine him watching the Discovery Channel one day while tossing around possible gimmicks and having one of those "Hey, wait a second!" epiphanies during a rhino segment?
To spruce things up, the WWF should give Undertaker and Kane last names -- like Undertaker and Kane O'Brien, the O'Brien Brothers -- just for comedy's sake. Hopefully the door's still open.
RVD is approaching the always-exciting "The crowd loves him, but he's not getting a major push yet" phase which helps makes wrestling so much fun. It only happens once every few years -- Stone Cold in '96, The Rock in '98, Shawn Michaels in '93 and so on. -- ESPN's Bill Simmons back in 2001
Nope, no attendance record last night, but the crowd of 37,000+ was the most to see a Marlins home game since July 14, 2001. The walkup crowd was like 15,000 or something. And it feels so good to see my team FINALLY hangin with the big boys.
Yo, it's me, it's me, it's (points to self) P-A-B!
There was a lot of debate about that this year; personally, I'd say that there really aren't more than 10 guys that I'd count on to go in and get the last 3 outs of a game, and pretty much know I'll walk away with a win. Wagner's one of those guys.
