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…

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….


Let Us Remember a September to Forget

This is it for the Mets. With 17 to play. Or, as Reigning Swami Stewart K likes to say, 17 TO PRAY, we take a painful look back at Yesterday’s Backpages. This is best experienced by slowly scrolling down, letting the full impact of each heartbreaking defeat hit you one at a time. A warning to those with heart conditions or young children at home: Graphic images of Jorge Sosa and Tom Glavine follow.

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.
