Marshals under investigation for protecting Buck and McCarver

A clinic in pitching
The story on Tabata

Sometimes the jokes just write themselves. An acting U.S. Marshal in Boston is under investigation for allegedly having her deputies guard and chauffeur Joe Buck and Tim McCarver around Boston during the World Series last year. These two deputies may also have watched games one and two of the World Series from the broadcast booth. The punch lines are limitless.

    If the punchlines are so limitless, why don’t you write one?

    I agree. It is not clear here whether or not you are trying to make a joke about Buck and McCarver, a joke about the US Marshall, or a (yawn) joke about the Red Sox. This is not Yankee news, this is not Yankee commenting… It is either 1) a national news story, 2) an ESPN-type sideline drama story, or 3) a strange, indirect way to throw ambiguous criticism at your rival. So I guess my question is… Really?

    And, in response, let us sit back and consider how many complete tools get premium Yankees tickets daily through dubious means. I’ve lived in New York long enough to know that it is the heart of bullshit elitism and “favor”-centric culture, and if anything it is downright unusual that a story like that would find itself taking place anywhere BUT New York. Is that the joke you were trying to make?

    wow. you cite a story about Boston and they come outta the woodwork. i lived in Boston long enough to know that this isn’t surprising. i’m not even sure what ‘bullshit elitism’ means but it sounds closer to a typical Bostonian.

    as to the story, they SHOULD have protection, as plenty of people would like to hurt them (rightly so).

      Dude, you don’t have to be a moron to be a Yankee fan. Denizens of the Boston area don’t have a monopoly on poly-syllabic words or advanced degrees. Elitism is a perfectly fine word and people use it. Just because your vocabulary is limited doesn’t mean you have to breakout the pitchforks and go on a pogrom.
