Your Backpages — And Our First Extreme Swami

by Backpageman on July 31, 2008

When the Yankees pulled the trigger on Farnsworth for Pudge, you knew they would own the Backpages, and they did. A clean sweep of the Troika, and rightly so. But only one man had the foresight to think fast and guess fast. At 4:51 PM yesterday, hours before the Pros even convened to discuss the Backpages, B. Flat of New York, NY made history as our first Extreme Swami. Doff your turbans, Heroes, greatness is among us. And your backpages…

Sending It Up to Bobbers

by Backpageman on July 30, 2008

Backpageman sends it up to fishing with bobbers, because, as far as he knows, a bobber has never killed a man. Unlike lead sinkers, which brained and killed a poor bastard yesterday. Newsday has the story.

And Your Backpages: July 30, 2008

by Backpageman on July 30, 2008

A sad day for Backpageology. Newsday fell asleep at the wheel and is still featuring yesterday’s Backpage on its site. The game must go on, so the Troika is more like a Doika today. Big Met win and big Yankee loss resulted in a Backpage split. Nice efforts from Pros, and the Heroes of TomorrowsBackpage.com, but nothing even close. Tomorrow’s another day. Check your teeth. Here they come…

Both Mets and Yanks spit the bit last night — and the Trokia split the difference. Post and Newsday go for the Moose loss and the News for the Maine injury. Pretty mediocre stuff from the So-Called Backpage Pros — and the Heroes. Get out the hair gel. Here they come.

Sending It Up to Goose Gossage

by Backpageman on July 28, 2008

Backpageman sends it up to the newest Hall of Famer and this Hall of Fame performance. He calls out both the “greasy c*!&suckers” of the NYC Press Corps and the “dumb mothereffers in the seats.” Welcome to Cooperstown, Goose. (Contains profanity, lots of delicious profanity).

A clean sweep for the Yanks. And, if Backpageman does say so himself, a fine display of Backpagery. Three very different, and very good Backpages. The Heroes were miles away, and who can blame them. Pencils down, Heroes, here they come.

A little catch-up for Backpageman. Yanks put a hurting on the Sox. Again. Yet in a bit of a shocker, the News goes with the Mets. Several Backpageologists have asked me to look into the clam that the News is a Yankee paper. An investigation is underway. Take your seats, Heroes. Here they come.

Big night for Yankees — and Backpageologists. Not only did they beat the Sox in Fenway but they also acquired two players with great Backpage potential. Xavier Nady. THE X-MAN COMETH. X MARKS THE SPOT. And Damaso Marte. MARTE! Reigning Swami James S of St. Charles, Illinois learned how hard it is to repeat. Tomorrow’s another day, kid.

Put on your striped shirts, Heroes. Here they come and they’re looking fine…

It’s Game On for Yankee Backpageologists

by Backpageman on July 25, 2008

The stage is yours with Yankees-Sox at Fenway. As always, posts will be light but Swamihood is yours for the taking. Good luck, Heroes.
