RSN not the only ones booing Teixeira

By

This is pretty damn entertaining, I must say. Notable rhymes: Jeter with Weiters, “take us” with Markakis, and “Boog Powell and his meat” with Eutaw Street.

    LOL That was good

  • http://www.mlbnotebook.com Zach Sanders

    This is great. He’ll shrug it off, and probably smash some bombs against the O’s this season.

  • Expired Milk

    What next the Secetary of the Nationals fanbase puts out that stament that they will Boo Tex also

  • Thomas

    I like how the guy with his hat on sideways that makes the giant O at the end says that Teixeira looks like a dork. The irony.

    • Zack

      Or the guy in the middle with the Ravens hat on.

  • Jesse

    God it must suck to be an Orioles fan. Incidentally, based on CDC statistics 1.5 of the people in this video have a STD.

  • Paulie

    Wow! I don’t know what to say, this is pretty funny. Three nerds signing about how they are going boo boo boo Teixeira and that he looks like a dork. This is just great, haha.

  • Zack

    These guys have way toooo much time on their hands haha. But hey give them credit they did a good job

  • Mike Pop

    Awesome.

    That was awesome. Yankees fan or not, how can you not like that song? I am going to use that for the Custom Music option in The Show.

    @ 1:13 – 1:14 the awkward stare on the two dudes on the left…what the hell is that? :P

    Heh, I found another video in the “Related Videos” section; this was all sorts of awesome: http://tinyurl.com/cdylrz

    NO YOU FUCKING DIDN’T!!!

    Classic.

        Texerrhea? Hmm…

        • Mike Pop

          Dude watch the video he has on A-Rod and steroids. I love this guy, funny as fuck.

          • http://statspeak.net dan

            Oh my god that was so funny. This guy is fucking crazy.

        I love how he tells at Obama for not doing something when Barack wasn’t even president at the time.

        It’s a shame what Michael Rappaport has been reduced to.

        • Mike Pop

          Dude’s got so many issues. He is so angry about everything.

    Props to those guys. Though I’m a guy who was born in NYC and raised a Yankee fan from day 1 of my life and I’m utterly grateful I get to make that claim, I’ve always respected fellow lifelong (or at least, dedicated and die hard) fans of other teams, especially ones whose franchises are going through hard times like The Orioles. It just gets me excited about baseball to see opposing fans talk shit about our guys – its a nice reminder that despite the harsh economy and rough times in general, baseball is never going to go away.

  • http://www.YouTube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

    The video doesn’t bother me (I actually find it quite amusing), but the comments on that video annoy the shit out of me. People can be so stupid sometimes.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Being forced to read the comments posted on a YouTube video is one of the circles of hell. I’m sure of it.

      I have never once seen an intelligent or even useful comment posted on YouTube. I never ever scroll down to look anymore. It’s a wasteland.

  • Brett

    I go to school in Maryland and I though all Orioles fans were idiots, but clearly not all. That was brilliant.

  • http://goldenrule.mlblogs.com/ Bryan V

    1. Teixeira should be upset that he plays with lowly Derek Jeter, instead of playing with Matt Wieters? A guy that’s never stepped foot in MLB? Or are Yankee fans supposed to be jealous?

    2. OH NO! They got Markakis. Whatever shall we do?

    3. Boog Powell was a fine player. But I’ve never heard about 100,000 people celebrating New Year’s Eve outside of his BBQ restaurant.

    Cool song. But it wouldn’t make me think “gee, I wish I played in Baltimore instead of New York”.

    • btour99

      Whoah!!! The song is obviously a joke. No need to break down the lyrics like they were a legitimate argument against the Yankees.

      1. They don’t have a state-of-art ball park opening in April with a ginormous HD overlooking the outfield like we do screen like we do, although Camden is a beautiful park.

      2. Markakis is a good player but he is nothing to write home about when you look at our lineup… (Melky+Nady)/Swisher = Markakis. No need to worry.

      3. True

      The Orioles will blow this year. Just let their suicidal fans have a little fun. Besides, its a pretty catchy tune.

      • http://goldenrule.mlblogs.com/ Bryan V

        Maybe I took it too seriously. When I see three guys that are big enough fans to write a song like that, I tend to think they weren’t totally joking around. But whatever.

        Hope they had fun writing and performing music, because Yankee fans like myself are going to have fun watching our team win.

      • Orioles Fan

        Lord, you guys take things too far… and just so you know, the Orioles won’t be bad forever, just like the Yankees weren’t bad despite a rough patch in the 1980s (I guess all the Yankees bandwagon jumpers don’t remember those days because they weren’t watching then), but its cool.

        Things will change soon…

  • Joey

    Haha, props to those guys, funny shit. I’ll think of it when the Yanks (especially Teix) are kickin the shit outta the O’s this season

  • McCaff

    Not bad for fans of a team who is going to battle for 4th place this year in the AL East. That should be a nice race to watch.

  • Harry G

    Hey, is anybody here an ESPN Indisder? Nate Silver of Baseball Prospectus – the inventor of PECOTA – had a peice up there today basically predicting that A-Rod won’t be breaking Bonds’ HR record.. I’m dying to know what he writes to support that, so if anybody out there has an idea, please let me know…

    • Joey

      “The reason boils down to that fine print you ignored when you invested your daughter’s college fund in Citibank stock a few years ago: Past performance is no guarantee of future results.”

      Don’t want to copy and paste the whole thing, but I’ll summarize his points (or just copy and paste parts :-) ):
      -All-around athleticism. “Multidimensional players, generally speaking, age better than unidimensional ones.” A-Rod is multi
      -The Benjamin Button Principle. “This is the concept that the beginning of a player’s life sometimes resembles the end”
      -Perverse Incentives, Part I. “$30 million bonus if he breaks the all-time home run record.”
      -The aging curve. “The steepest part of the aging curve — when a hitter experiences the most decline in his abilities — tends to come between ages 32 and 34.”
      -Injury risk. He’s been fairly healthy, but last season missed a chunk of time (indicator of future?)
      -Perverse Incentives, Part II. By far the longest part getting into PECOTA including comparable players like “Dave Winfield, George Brett, Frank Robinson, Reggie Jackson, Tony Perez and Hank Aaron himself” and “some other players whose careers did not end all that gracefully. First are the guys who succumbed to injury, like Jeff Bagwell and Albert Belle” and Sammy Sosa who is also suspected of using PEDs. It’s summed up in this paragraph:
      “PECOTA’s best guess is that Rodriguez will finish with 730 lifetime home runs, running out of steam after another three or four seasons and leaving him just shy of the marks established by Aaron and Bonds. Of course, there is a lot of uncertainty in this estimate. If Rodriguez follows the path charted by Aaron or Frank Robinson, he could finish with well in excess of 800 home runs (and possibly as many as 900). On the other hand, if he draws Albert Belle’s ping-pong ball, he might not top 600. Overall, the system puts Rodriguez’s chances of surpassing Aaron at only about four in 10 and of surpassing Bonds closer to three in 10.”

      Joe, Ben, Mike, if I did anything I shouldn’t have please delete the post

      • Joey

        It basically praises him as much as saying there is a better chance he doesn’t get there that he does, nothing groundbreaking

  • Mike Z

    I wonder how these guys will feel on opening day when Yankee fans invade Camden Yards once again and take over the ballpark. Go Yanks !!

  • mko

    Funny ;-)
    Is that Schilling in the middle? LOL.

  • LiveFromNewYork

    I’m always amazed (don’t know why) how much energy and attention we get from other team’s fans. Instead of penning Let’s Go O’s, they hate on Texeira. Funny funny guys. I guess Let’s Go O’s wouldn’t have been that amusing. (because they are in a brutal league where only a miracle will pull them up to the top)

  • GoTerpsGo

    If there are so many Yanks fans down here how come I don’t see any walking around? It’s more likely I’d see Steelers fans. That said, I love how the Birdbrains have been put down for the last dozen yrs and will continue for this year.

    Excellent….

  • YankeeScribe

    Mark Teixera grew up near Baltimore and a lot of their fans had their hopes set on him coming to the Orioles and being the next hometown hero like Cal Ripken. They feel betrayed by him choosing the Yankees.

    I live in Baltimore and I will be at Camden Yards for opening day vs the Yankees. Normally Yankee fans outnumber Oriole fans at Oriole park but I doubt that will be the case on opening day. ARod will get booed everywhere but the boos will be louder for Teixera when he shows up to bat in Baltimore.

  • ben

    you’re all a bunch of bandwagon assholes. do me a favor this year and keep all of your drunk obnoxious and rude selves out of our beautiful camden yards
