We Don't Need No Stinkin' Out-of-Town Scoreboard!

It was 3-1 Sox, and I was miserable.

Now it's the top of the 5th, and it's 9-3 Yanks.

In the words of Howard Dean, former Governor of Vermont and 2004 Presidential candidate, "HYAHHHHHHHH!" (He's a New Englander now, but originally from the Hamptons on Long Island. I don't know what team he roots for.)

The game is on Channel 9. I still cringe when I think that, on those increasingly rare occasions when they're on what used to be known as "free TV," the Yankees are on Channel 9 and the Mets are on Channel 11. For decades, it was the other way around.

Anyway, Michael Kay just did the out-of-town scoreboard. Seriously, we're playing the Red Sox. Has the out-of-town scoreboard ever been more irrelevant? Out-of-Town Scoreboard? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Out-of-Town Scoreboard!

Joba just got that damn cheater Ortiz to pop up.

UPDATE: Final score: Yankees 13, Red Sox 6. Winning pitcher: Joba Chamberlain. No save. Losing pitcher: John Smoltz -- still very strange to see him in a uniform other than that of the Atlanta Braves. Home runs by Jorge Posada, Mark Teixeira, Melky Cabrera, and, best of all, by former Sox hero Johnny Damon.

He's one of us now.
