Your Backpages: April 14, 2009

Is there anything more delicious than a blundering Metropolitan loss on a big night? Inspired work from the Troika.


Sending It Up To: Bargain Shopping

Jose, Jose, Jose… Thanks to the Post and B Flat for the link….

Oh! What a night for those Metropolitans — and Backpage Nation. The Mets battled and battled and finally, in dramatic fashion, beat those pesky Iowa Cubs. Lou’s B-team didn’t dampen the spirits of our A-team. You! The Heroes of RING THE BEL! WILD TIE. RAIN MEN. SUPER SOAKER. BEL-LIEVE! All good, but wrong guesses. A special rain-soaked tip of the Swami Turban to The Fedora who snags his second with WET & WILD. They would never suspend their campaign… Your Backpages…

It’s a Sunday of near-Swami-hood. Last night, Backpageman surmised the Backpages would be NIESE COMEBACK or some NIESE pun. Backpageman was not alone. The Heroes came with NIESE & EASY, NIESE WIN, NIESE JOB, NIESE!, NIESELY DONE,

Perhaps it’s a result of a new influx of Swami talent, thanks to the shout-out from our friends at But the you, the Heroes of, have raised the Backpage game to a whole new level. In fact — and I rarely say this — you clearly outclassed some very pedestrian efforts from the Pros. I mean, look at Newsday. A Beltran picture from the third inning and HIT FACTORY. They clearly wrapped it up early and beat the crowds to TGI Fridays. Come on guys, you’re embarrassing Backpageman and his proud County Suffolk brethren. At least the Post made their photographer stay till the end. But MET ‘N’ WILD? Lame. And the News? I know you’re upset about the Yankees being done, but to go to such lengths to deny the Mets the Backpage. Lame. Hold your noses, folks. Your Backpages….

As some of you may recall from my Backpageology ‘07 keynote address , “The Backpages: A Fickle Friend In a Friendless World,” the Backpages are always ready to throw you under the proverbial bus. As I said that magical day in the New Caanan Marriot, if the Backpages were a person they’d be that always-complaining, never-satisfied fair-weather friend who loves to tell you just how wrong you were.The kind of friend who, no matter how hard you try, always tells you your ass looks fat in those jeans. So alas, the Mets, who have owned the Fightin Phils this year, lost a game and got the 48-point shiv from the Trokia. And the great Tom E, who always has a finger on the pulse, knew just what they’d say. NOT AGAIN! That’s the 10th Turban for the 2-sport Swami. Here they are. Backpages you can believe in!

Light trading this holiday weekend — or as several Heroes surmised — this HALLADAY WEEKEND. Mets win. Yanks lose and the poor bastards stuck in the newsroom (and not at the beach shoveling down funnel cake) channeled that bitterness into their pages.

Here they come, in their white pumps for one last time. Your Backpages…

Big night for the Metropolitans — and for the Backpages. After an overall poor performance yesterday, the Post bounces back with TAG & WAG. News and Newsday again mailed it in. Where have all the headline writers gone?


An Open Letter to Carlos Delgado

by Alvaro De La Backpagearocha on July 21, 2008

Hello, Heroes. There’s something I need to say and I thank Backpageman for giving me the opportunity to say it here.

Dear Mr. Delgado,

I am writing you to apologize. On behalf of myself and many others

Tip of the Swami Turban to Russ from Bohemia, Ph.D for his semiotic observation about the Backpages trending toward the Metropolitans. “The Post,” he writes, “is a fickle lady. It’ll go with whoever’s ass looks best in jeans. But when the Daily News, the unofficial mouthpiece for all things Yankees, leans Mets, something is happening.” Only time will tell, Dr. Russ. Thanks for playing, Heroes. No Swamis today.


Backpages are fickle bitches, ain't they?
