The Curse Of The "B's"
Eventful game at the Stadium last night. Jesse (who came drunk, surprisingly enough), had the rare experience of being in the men's restroom...completely alone! It's apparently never happened to him before and he danced around and peed pretty much anywhere. Then he was tossed out (by a female cop Nanette saw saying to another cop "I want to throw him out" earlier). Why? Because he yelled "Axl! Axl!" at a Boston fan who looked like Axl Rose (and laughed about it). Everyone picked up the chant but the cop thought Jesse was chanting "Asshole." Even though ten people immediately spoke up and insisted he was saying "Axl" and she clearly realized she was wrong, she threw him out anyway. Then Girardi was tossed out. Then the cops continued to harass the fans, telling people to sit down seconds after they jumped up cheering for a play (seriously), throwing people out who looked genuinely bewildered over being tossed out. The woman sitting one row behind us could NEVER find her seat after going downstairs, which became a running joke. And the curse of the B's reared its head again for Boston, with Brett Gardner joining Babe Ruth, Bucky Dent and Aaron Boone as Yankees w "b's" in their names who get key hits off Boston, in this case a dribble up the middle that scored A-Rod. (Oh, and A-Rod tied Mickey Mantle with HR # 536.)
