The Fans are Chanting Barry…Manilow

1.) I watched exactly one pitch of the World Series yesterday, and luckily for me, it was Pablo Sandoval’s first home run.  Good stuff. But, sorry World Series, baseball is boring and I had AMC’s Halloween marathon to keep me busy.

With that being said, did anyone else see the clip on Deadspin? If not, let me summarize.

Barry Zito has just hit an RBI single (I think) and here is where it gets interesting, allow me to post the transcript between the wonderful (sarcasm) announcers Joe Buck and Tim McCarver.

Buck: How about Zito? And how about 4 straight games for the Giants’ starting pitchers to knock in a run.

(Fans Cheering)

McCarver: That’s a sound he has not heard in this park too often.The sound of ‘Barry! Barry!’

Buck: They use to say it for somebody else around here.

McCarver: When Barry Manilow was playing. In a concert.

Buck: Or Barry Bonds.

Yes, McCarver, or Barry f-ing Bonds, you toolbox!

2.) Getting back to the Halloween movie marathon, I think having Busta Rhymes karate kick Michael Myers out of a window in Halloween 8 maaaaay have been the wrong decision. I’m just saying.

Also, earlier in the movie, Busta Rhymes–who at this point is dressed up like Michael Myers–confronts THE REAL Michael Myers and just totally dresses him down. He says to him (because he thinks Myers is some other guy): “You need to get you ass back in the garage with Nora! That’s your job! Go back in there and help her ass out! Go do your job! I left the back door unlocked for your ass to go out the back and into the garage! That’s what I did! You need to get the hell out of here! Go on! Skoot! Skadattle! Get the F out of Dodge!”

So Michael Myers chops him to pieces, right?

WRONG! The real Michael Myers just stands there like a dummy and then turns around and walks away.  WHAAAAAA? So take note folks, if you’re ever attacked by Michael Myers, don’t run, just insult him and hurt his feelings. Then he will walk away in shame.

3.) After that debacle, I watched the less-debacled (not a word) Halloween 4. My favorite part of the movie was when Dr. Loomis came upon a crash where Michael Myers drove an ambulance into a river and he asks the cops, “How many bodies were there?”

And the cops answer, “Meh, we don’t know.”

So Loomis says, “What do you mean you don’t know?”

And the cops go, “Meh. It’s hard to tell.”

HARD TO TELL? I’m pretty sure you could figure it out. At least ball park it. But no, the cops are content to just watch a van sink and Myers gets away.
