A little anti-Yanks bias

By

As commenter barry notes, we seem to be getting some ads for Yankees and Mets ringtones. Now, I have no clue what these ringtones are — possibly “New York, New York” for the Yanks and “Meet the Mets” for our cross-town rivals, but beyond that, I’m not sure what else they could do. But that’s not what has me scratching my head. Check out the Mets ringtones ad:

They’re all gathered around the plate, apparently awaiting whoever hit a walk-off homer. Everyone looks excited, but more importantly, almost everyone is there. Reyes, Beltran, Wagner, Delgado, Wright…hell, I even see LoDuca off to the right.

Now let’s look at the Yanks ad:

So we get Johnny Damon slapping hands with…Nick Green. What the hell? And Melky’s in the middle of it, looking as awkward as we’ve ever seen him — well, without a bat in his hands, at least. And is that a camera dude in the background? He kinda reminds me of Bob Golic.

Seriously, who’s going to buy Yanks ringtones when Damon, Melky, and Nick friggin’ Green are advertising them?

    Lol. That picture for the Yankees is hilarious now that you point it out. It’s like they picked the first image that popped up after searching “Nick Green Yankees” on Google Image.

    I have two Yankee ringtones: John Sterling vibrating to the Yankees Win and Bill White’s call of the Bucky Dent HR. It gives me extra joy when the latter goes off in the company of a Red Sox fan.

    lol the guy in the back makes it tho i never even noticed him before.

  • mg

    Damon looks very excited there too.

  • Jeff

    I was more impressed by a GAY looking Melkman holding his invisible cell phone to call his mom.

  • blah

    LMAO.

    By the way, I hate Bob Golic.

      And what, pray tell, do you have against Saved By The Bell: The College Years?

        Why did they cancel that show again?

        Actually, it wasn’t half bad for a Saved by the Bell spinoff. Of course, I loved that stuff growing up.

          There will be no blaspheme ‘gainst “The Bell” as long as I draw breath on this Earth.

          I’m so excited…..I’m so excited…..I’m….so…..scared………

    It’s Melky’s fault.

    I have to say the blog has really taken on a woe is me attitude. I mean its getting a little ridiculous. I realize the whole post is half a joke. But its a little much

  • RobertGKramer

    OK, I’ll venture a guess on which Met hit the walkoff. With so many leadfoots already gathered at the plate it’s either the ancient Alou or the crippled Floyd. If either is in the picture, my excuse is I don’t watch the Mets much.

  • bummy

    Oh, c’mon Steve! That is a funny post man. It’s not a conspiracy, just really funny!

  • Mark

    Yeah, come on Steve, it’s funny!! Dont be a douche
