moosedenied Should've known it wouldn't be long before the local Legitimate Media started playing both sides of the fence on the Reggie Issue. REG-GIE!

moosedenied Ever find yourself lamenting the fact that you don't own a single funnel? And you're all "S***! How is that even possible?"

MilneMalbrough How dare Reggie not work out 45 hours a day, 9 days a week, 398 days a year to make sure I'm entertained in the Fall? Shame on you Reggie

(HansDat note: nice of Wang to use the contraction "should've" instead of the increasingly common "should of") 

Twitter (continued)

greggrosenthal Sarah Silverman just got bleeped on Fox telecast for saying Masshole twice. Will get criticized but i loved it.

greggrosenthal Loved it if only to see Joe Buck sweat. Also i agree with her: LSD should be allowed as a treat for pitchers.

(HansDat note: I chuckled at the Silverman video, but it was mostly awkward, annoying sports-celeb interview during a game)
