Jonathan Papelbon NY Controversy in All-Star Game

6 posts in this topic

I personally am a Twins fan and really don’t care for either Boston or the Yankee’s but when it comes to the American league against the National League I’m all for the AL regardless of the team they are from. Even if I hate a player I wouldn’t boo them in this situation. The funny thing is that Papelbon actually performed better then Rivera did in their first innings played not to say Papelbon is better then Rivera of course.

From what I understand he praised Rivera for most of the 50 minute interview but on this one repeated questioned answered as he did that he would pick himself to close. Is that really a big deal and would Rivera answer it in the same manner, Yes and I think not. What is really bad and is sooo typical of the NY fans is their poor sportsmanship attitude. We shouldn't have All-Star Games in NY when they booo one of their own AL team players especially when we are down by 2, what a bunch of jerk-baits I hope they stay close to or better yet at the bottom of the East. Way to go getting rid of Joe T. NY bums!

Original Daily News NY article that got the fans going;

Jonathan Papelbon says he should close All-Star Game instead of Mo

I totally agree with that. I hate the yankees but i am cheering for everybody on the al. I was so mad when they walked morneau! I had a feeling he was gunna win it.

It sure was nice to see Morneau to get in on the winning run though. I too was hoping they wouldn't walk him and he would get the big hit, I guess being the batting champ scared them. LOL

I am always cheering for the AL but after hearing about how the NY media blew what he said out of proportion and how the Yankee fans treated Pap, I was actually hoping Riviera would lose the darn game!

I too will cheer for the AL all the way, but lets say the game is played in Minneapolis and Papelbon says this about Nathan.

The fans in Minnesota BOO him as well. You have to stick up for your players even if Paps comments were taken out of context.

i read an article where papelbon said the NY fans were threatening his pregnant wife during the red carpet parade. if that is true, then NY is truly the home of losers. nice tough guy accents too.

    •   Stayed home for the 4th this year, was amazed how quiet the cities seemed to be. "Is everybody up north?"
    •   I sure like the sites your old campground kept open for weekenders. Best spots in the campground if you ask me.    
    • so leech, does your campground have festivities functions for there permy site people? ours had a big fish fry on the fourth with a little parade. they do a golfing event to. i heard they finally got some decent playground equipment for kids. there theory was theres fishing. they used to do a pot luck with a theme german, mexican..bleah blah.....but that required work and planning from the owners. took away from the beer drinking! 
    •   I have noticed that trend at seasonal campgrounds too. 20 some years ago when we started camping seasonal sites used to be full of folks 60+ but now it seems that there are a lot of young families in these sites.    The other trend I noticed is that lot rental prices have gone through the roof since then. 
    •   Well in the 12 years we have been at this campground it went from mostly old folks where if your Walker wheel was squeaking someone would run out with a can of WD-40 to stop the noise! Now a lot of young families with kids. Most of the year it's not to bad, but the Holidays can get a little crazy with the golf carts and beer flowing!   I don't let folks bother me much, I have two young grandsons so their in the mix!
    • I have definitely come to the conclusion that on those big 3 day holiday weekends its way more quiet and peaceful if i stay put at home.................even up north. hey i can have a fire and have cocktails at home too!!!!!!! the weekends to go are weekends prior to and after them big weekends!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Pretty much the same on enforcing some of the rules. The 4th was a Zoo and I'm sure the managers head was spinning trying to keep track of who all the kids running belonged too!
    • well it didnt help our family has a cabin up in itasca county and have had it since 1965. the camper took time away from there. granted the camper was 30 minutes from home the cabin 3 1/2 hours but there is agood city block of woods between us and the neighbor.............and we have noone on the other side. i dont mind a little socoilizing but that peace and quiet is right up my ally.   so leech does your park charge extra for additional company not your immediate family? the campground we were at did, but they didnt enforce it fairly. some were forced some got to slide. oh and there were alot of other issues i got fed up with!!!!!!!
    • No ones making fun leech. Just made a statement. I've never seen one like that before. I've seen the hand ones curved, but not the powered one. Guess it could be like the hand one. I could be wrong. Be interested to see if they sold one like that, or someone put a power head on it. I'll let you take over now.
