Breaking: someone was smokin’ weed in San Francisco last night

Oct 28, 2010, 12:58 PM EDT

“People hanging around in San Francisco smoking weed” is the ultimate dog-bites-man story, but it was apparently pretty shocking for one newsman from Dallas reporting from the game last night.

But don’t laugh too hard, Northern Californians. I got even money on a San Francisco reporter going crazy outside of the Ballpark at Arlington when people there start shooting and praying and grilling meat at her and stuff.

    Worse yet, Giant fans in Texas will encounter all kinds of people named something like Newsy Scruggs. Billy Bob loves his Lone Star!

    ‘Scruggs didn’t do any real trash talking, unless you consider saying Giants fans are high on pot. He quickly added that we were “nice people,” but said that was in part because we were “half buzzed out.”‘

    …and this is yet another reason to legalize it next week. Call ‘em stoners, potheads, half buzzed out, etc., but they’re still nice people. Has anyone ever met a “mean stoner” as you would a “mean drunk”? No. Sure isn’t the crazed reefer madness they talked about a century ago…

      Seriously though, and I’m not saying this because I’m a pot head or anything. From a economical standpoint alone it only makes sense. billions are wasted fighting marijuana use in this country. Billions of Tax dollars could be generated through the legal sale of it. California is hurting enough in the revenue dept. to make this change happen. The problem still remains with the Feds though, so until it’s federally acceptable, there will still be a problem. And as you said. Potheads are not killing people with their cars like drunks do, they don’t start big brawls, they rarely get into any trouble. The worst we can say is they drive too slow and say duuuude way too much. not too bad imo.

        duuuuude, thats why i say im a buddhist, duuuude….

      • Jonny 5 - Oct 28, 2010 at 1:38 PM

        A buddhist, or a Bud-ist ?

        The proper title is Endochrondologist.

      • Jonny 5 - Oct 28, 2010 at 4:26 PM

        Think you could help me out? I think one of my endocrines is misfiring….

        I agree….and it would stimulate the economy and help the market, too. Frito Lay and Hostess Twinkies stock could soar.

    What a lightweight. If he wanted to make a worthy story, he’d have joined them in their fun. It was already obvious that half of the Giants staff began the game high as a kite. Must not have been the Hydro though, since they would have been hiding in the dugout if that were the case….

    • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Oct 28, 2010 at 1:19 PM

      I doubt it. The San Franciscans are quite used to the hydrochronix. It’s cheaper, better and damn unfair that Illinois is behind the pro-schmaat curve. If you or I hit the hydro, on the other hand, that would be a different story.

      I “remember” my trip to Amsterdam in ’02 started by sitting in one coffee shop for something like 48 hours w/o moving (owner said the stuff would “plant you in the chair”, bastard didn’t say I’d turn into a plant and grow roots into the floor). BUT, after 4 days there, my tolerance turned me into a regular Dutch dude that could actually perform day-to-day tasks (eating and wandering through museums mainly) while under the influence.

    It was medical marijuana.

      Of course, it was! The sick and shut-ins are some of MLB biggest fans! The next thing the reporter will tells you that couples of the same sex with seen kissing around the ballgame.

      • Utley's Hair - Oct 28, 2010 at 11:31 PM

        Well, as long as that’s not captured on the kiss cam and no kids ask their parents why those two are kissing, we should all be fine.

    THAT’S what was wrong with Cliffy last night!!! His ERA got baked!!!

    Referring (or reefering, as it were) to Newy Scruggs as a “newsman” is more than just a bit of a stretch. He is one of the less respected sports guys in the market. All the radio guys poke fun at him all the time, and not always in a good-natured way. So much so, that he almost never does sports talk radio any more. If you see a report from Mike Doocey or Dale Hansen or Max Morgam, it’s gonna be more insightful than anything you get from Newy…
    And on that subject matter, I’d guess that Hansen or Doocey wouldn’t report on it, but would be likely to join the subjects.

    Yes on Weed!!! No on giants.

    And Journey.
