And Your Backpages: September 19, 2008

by Backpageman on September 19, 2008

The Mets win over the Nats dominates the Troika. And the Heroes were on it. Rising Swami Stewart K nabs a coveted Post Backpage for his third Swami Turban with BATTERY POWERED. The News clearly tuned out early as the Met bullpen made it interesting — hardly your traditional laugher. And Newsday reached once more into its shallow bag of cliches and pulled out the uninspired CAPITAL GAIN.

Finally, for those Metropolitan conspiracy theorists who love to tell me our beloved Backpages are Yankee partisans, here is yet more evidence that the Backpages, if anything, are fair weather fans, the newspaper equivalent of Jeter girls. (A Jeter girl is a woman, usually young, often hot, who is a “die hard Yankee fan” (usually since ‘96), who you always end up seeing on the train going to the game in her brand new Jeter jersey, often with a pack of other Jeter girls. As a Backpageologist and a sports nerd, you want to hate her, but, because she’s kinda hot, you give her a pass. Which makes you hate yourself just a little bit more.) They were for it before they were against it… Your Backpages…
