Apr 11, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

Tiffany and I talk about those three early season surprises, Jered Weaver and whether Phil Hughes or John Lackey is a bigger concern for their respective teams

      Ditto

    Define “for real”. Could any of the three break .500? Sure. Could any of the three win the World Series? No.

    The Orioles are for real, it just sucks for them to be in that division. And Tiffany seems even more beautiful than normal today. Did I just just type that? oh well. [post comment]

      JONNY!!!!!!!! What are you doing on here?!? You are supposed to be regrouting that new tile, dammit!!!!! And STOP looking at other women!

      That’s it. Tile is all you’ll be laying for a LOOOOOONNNNG time!!!!!

      • frankvzappa - Apr 11, 2011 at 2:57 PM

        Hilarity at its finest.

      • Jonny 5 - Apr 11, 2011 at 3:08 PM

        Listen here you W…………. Errrr, I mean you wonderful person, you. I was framed and stuff. It was the beer talking, yeah, the two I had yesterday are still talking…. And the tile has BEEN done, sure it’s not sealed like I was supposed to do a month ago, but it’s on my list. The very top of the list. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

        I wonder who gave “my wife” a thumbs down? High fives!!!!

      • Mrs. Jonny 5 - Apr 11, 2011 at 3:29 PM

        If it wasn’t for that humongous deck, you would SO be replaced by that Utley’s Hair character—he’s dreamier than that DC Wolfman, and that pasty dream of a blogger Calcaterra.

        Or, hell, maybe you’ll be replaced by Tiffany….

      • Jonny 5 - Apr 11, 2011 at 3:40 PM

        Should I start dinner as soon as I get home? Tonight is my butt kissing night anyway with no Phillies game… Uh oh, did I type that?

      • Mrs. Jonny 5 - Apr 11, 2011 at 3:47 PM

        EVERY night is butt-kissing night, so pucker up, Buttercup!!!!

        And I want a side of beef, extra rare and bloody. Don’t screw it up like you did last time, do you hear me?!?!?

      • Jonny 5 - Apr 11, 2011 at 3:56 PM

        Ha!!! You’re busted! No woman wants their meat bloody. It must always be well done. If it’s still juicy it reminds them it was once the leg or butt of something living, which never really bothers us men for some reason… Dog house averted!
        mmmmmmm rare side of beef……. guhhhhhhh..

      • Mark Buerhle - Apr 11, 2011 at 4:00 PM

        Damn…the jig is up. Now, I’ll have to take you out with my crossbow.

      • Jonny 5 - Apr 11, 2011 at 4:28 PM

        Wait!! I’m actually a dog. And I’m definitely not a bear.

      • Mark Buerhle - Apr 11, 2011 at 4:43 PM

        If I had a dollar for every time a bear tried to pass itself off as a dog to me….

        Let me confer with my most bestest buddy in the world…hey, Mike Vick, I need a word….

    • Panda Claus - Apr 11, 2011 at 3:28 PM

      I can’t agree with you here Jonny, as much as I’d love to. I’m hearing rumors that Alan Alda wants as job as the O’s team doctor because he wants a good challenge.

      • Utley's Hair - Apr 11, 2011 at 3:34 PM

        Would Klinger be the clubhouse manager? And Winchester would be the stadium announcer? And Col. Potter would be a broadcaster—just think, he would be calling every umpire’s blown call horse hockey.

      • Jonny 5 - Apr 11, 2011 at 3:38 PM

        I know this mentality all too well Panda. You’re just making sure it doesn’t hurt too bad when your team drops you on your head after lifting you up. I have been there. Not that I expect them to finish in front of the Yanks or Sox. I expect them to demand respect from them though.

      • Panda Claus - Apr 11, 2011 at 4:02 PM

        You’re dead right. Elevator going down… Oh crud, I just got on the Tower of Terror ride again.

      • Panda Claus - Apr 11, 2011 at 4:08 PM

        And here I was secretly hoping for a 1983 WS rematch.

      • Utley's Hair - Apr 11, 2011 at 4:12 PM

        With a different outcome, of course.

  4. cur68 - Apr 11, 2011 at 4:02 PM

    How quickly all forget how well the O’s did last season when Showalter took over. Stick that in there with their start this year and you know what you got? A very similar trend to the one Jose Bautista showed end of the 2009 season. Finished strong and put up league leading numbers the next season. That’s what the O’s are going to do. And since Craig can’t think of another pitcher as underrated as Weaver let me help him; Ricky Romero, the Jay’s #1 guy. Keep dismissing the O’s and forgetting Ricky everybody. I’ll look like a genius by the end of the season and you’ll all be begging me for betting advice. And Mrs Jonny 5? I’m an Ace with the tile laying…

    heh, heh, heh…she said laying…heh, heh, heh

    • Jonny 5 - Apr 11, 2011 at 4:23 PM

      DUDE! I finished tiling the floor!!! lol!

      • cur68 - Apr 11, 2011 at 4:36 PM

        Bet you didn’t do it right…

      • Mrs. Jonny 5 - Apr 11, 2011 at 4:47 PM

        Nothing to worry about here…he’s Canadian…with a dog named Josephine. But what I wouldn’t do to Utley’s Hair…oh, yeah…

      • cur68 - Apr 11, 2011 at 5:11 PM

        We all know it’s you Utley’s Hair. Stop it with the self gratification. You’ll go blind.

      • Utley's Hair - Apr 11, 2011 at 5:26 PM

        A little narcissism never hurt anyone. Or is it self delusion? —sigh—
