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…

Big night last night in Backpage nation, and just about all of the Heroes got sucked into game story guesses. OH, WHAT A KNIGHT! GOOD KNIGHT, DOUBLE BELT, SAVED BY THE BEL, and BELT-WAY. But the Pros went big picture, and rightly so. Here they are, fresh off their Lexus Platinum Experience… Your Backpages…


10 Reasons to Believe

by Backpageman on September 16, 2008

If you look hard enough, the Backpages will tell you exactly what you want to hear. Here are 10 reasons why the 2008 Mets are not the 2007 Mets…

1. Johan’s Here

2. Willie Always Believed In His Guys

3. Jerry Knows Which Ones Stink

4. Carlos Dos Is Back

5. Glav Is Not

6. David Wright Is Still David Wright

7. Mike Pelfrey Is Now Big Pelf

8. The Luck of the Irish Is On Their Side

9. No Sosa. No Mota. No Wags.*

10. Did I Mention Johan?

*Backpageman is choosing not to remember Heilman, Sanchez, Ayala et al…

Brett and the Jets dominate the Troika — and Backpageman has to wonder if Favre ever got this kind of reception in the Green Bay Press Gazette. The good news in all of this is that it pushed another Met bullpen collapse off the Backpages. Is a brutal Met loss not news anymore? Could be. Be nice. They have a case of the Mondays… Your Backpages….


Sending It Up to Having No Shame

by Backpageman on August 21, 2008

Backpageman sends it up to the Daily News for taking a page from the Post with the Women of the Games and the Men of the Games picture galleries. The women are here and the men here. Be prepared to shake your head in disappointment again and again. Oh, and yes, that woman is indeed wearing the Traditional Dress of Brazil… The wedgie…

As a Ph.D in Backpageology, there are not too many mornings when Backpageman is truly surprised by the Backpages. Today is one of those mornings. An admiring tip of the Swami turban to the Post for not only the slightly lascivious HAPPY ENDING Backpage but a picture of Mike Pelfrey getting spanked. Hey now. Also, please note that just as A-Rod = all things bad in Yankeeland, Jeter = all things good. And, yes, Jeter has totally got an Edge. Thank you , Sir, may I have another… Backpage.

Johan dominated the eyepatch-less Bucs and the Backpages. Does this mean that with Phelps out of the water, the Backpages are back to normal? Could be. Then again, when’s the Steeple Chase final? And one more Olympic note. If it’s not bad enough that Alicia Sacramone has watched all her Olympic dreams come crashing down, it’s downright cruel to make her have to talk to Cris “I’m so smug I don’t even need an H in my name” Collinsworth. Let them off the train, Heroes. Here they are.

All Phelps all the time. He’s ruling the Olympics — and the Troika kisses the golden ring. A side note, Backpageman maintains that the Backpages detest A-Rod, so you’ll see his picture whenever the Yanks are struggling. Last night, he wins the game with an A-bomb. And what’s on the Backpage? A freakin’ swimmer. No wonder why the dude needs the Kabbalah. Nice try to Mike from Massapequa for his guess GOLDEN SHOWER. We’ll see that one the same day Duaner gets the DIRTY SANCHEZ Backpage. Hands on your hearts, Heroes. Here they are..

The Post and News go with Yankee loss in Minnesota, while Newsday opts for Phelps mania. A little Backpageology 101 for the kids at home. Note the picture on the Post. When in doubt, call A-Rod out.


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…



Bleeeeep, Indeed
