John Sterling's Mind Is High, It Is Far, It Is Gone
Tonight, top of the 7th at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago, Yanks trailng the White Sox 6-5, Hideki Matsui batting against ex-Yankee and ex-Met Octavio Dotel, and John Sterling says the following:
"Theeee pitch, it's swung on, AND THERE IT GOES! DEEP TO RIGHT! THAT BALL IS HIGH! IT IS FAR! It is foul... "
No, Sterling, YOU are foul!
He tried to justify it by saying, "That ball was gone."
No, Sterling, if it was fair, and over the fence, then, and only then, would it have been gone. If not, it doesn't matter how far the ball was hit, it's not gone!
John Sterling's mind! There it goes! It is high! It is far! It is...
There are times when I'd like to strangle him... if he had a neck!
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: No fans in North American sports has ever hated their team's broadcasters as much as Yankee Fans hate John Sterling and Michael Kay. For plenty of reasons.
At least they didn't cheat their way to two World Series titles, like the damned Red Sox. Or, rather, the Roid Sox!
Update: It's now 10-5 ChiSox, top of the 8th. The Yanks are about to be 0-2 since it was revealed that they got screwed in 2004.
I don't care: The Red Sox cheated, and The Curse lives.
