Fuck So Called, "Timbers" Bars!

I'm fascinated because I can't decide what word you meant when you wrote "curtailing." "Pandering" would make sense, but it's spelled nothing like curtailing. "Curtsying"? Doesn't make sense, but the spellings are at least similar. I don't know, it's gonna bother me for a while.

This one cannot be serious. It just can't be.

That was one hell of a great baseball game today.
WORLD SERIES BITCH.
America's pastime. We invented the game.
And you know what? It is a FAR SUPERIOR game than soccer.
Keep crying. I'll be laughing.

FYI frank, baseball isn't even an American pastime. The sport is said to have originated in France as far back as the 1300's, with a similar variation played by the Saxons in what is now modern day U.K.

So while you're laughing, you might do well to brush up on your history.

...and there is cricket, etc etc.
BASEBALL is born here.

I'm with you, Todd. My best guess is that the author was looking for "kowtowing," as it has the right meaning for the context of the sentence, and has the same k and t sounds as "curtailing."

You sound like one of the new idiots who became Timbers fans a year or two ago... if you want to see a Timbers match, go to The Bitter End, Thirsty Lion,442 or Beaulahland....or just go wherever there are a bunch of wanna be hooligan idiots with fake British accents. "local teams not even in it......". We don't have one (I'm sure you're aware), and who cares, its the Fucking World Series You are probably one of those aholes who wants to see a meaningless Blazer game during the NFL playoffs

Fuck the Timbers AND the Blazers

By Jove, spudboy, I think you've got it!

what is with the unnecessary commas?
11
@ cheetoface- People, quite often, don't know how to use them. If you are referring to Mecklem, he is using them correctly, biotch...
12
@ConflictArtist: A cheeto looks like a comma, so cheetoface must be unusually sensitive about seeing commas everywhere, even when they're used correctly. It's similar to how people who've had proctocolectomies feel about semi-colons.
13
@ dmitrir- I see. That makes perfect sense. I should have thought of that. Thanks for pointing it out...
14
i would NEVER say anything negative directed toward todd mecklem! i LOVE him! my annoyance was for anonymous. it's not only unnecessary but actually wrong how he/she put a comma before the words in quotations. it's a HUGE pet peeve of mine!

Gotcha cheeto :D

I once got yelled at by a bunch of hipsters at a dive bar in SE Portland for getting the bartender to change the channel to the 4th quarter of a Blazer game over a broadcast of the Clint Eastwood-orangutan buddy pic "Every Way Which But Loose." True story. Maybe not the same thing as the World Series preempting a Timbers game, but at the same time I can understand the OPs frustration.

@Deezus: I agree that primate bars should find a better way to identify themselves...at the very least, posters for "Space Chimp," Dunston Checks In," and "The Ape."

A "Banana Republic" flag above the door might be good too...

IM ANGRY ENOUGH ABOUT MORE POPULAR SPORTS TO POST ON THE INTERNET ABOUT MY RAGE.

Get over it. If you really want to see the game on TV, get an ESPN 3 membership or head down to 4-4-2 on Hawthorn and watch the game. You know should know by now the real Timbers Support Bars between the fairweather support bars. This is what you get for going to Buffalo Wild Wings.

catering?
21
You know, I think the Anonie was going for "trying to curry favor with..." but who the fuck knows? I'm against this one because it employed the phrase "frig off."
22
"Frig off" is Michiganian if I'm not mistaken. I think the author meant cater, but pander would have been correct. Todd Mecklem is the shit. Excessive commas are one of my weaknesses. Sorry frankieb.
23
Doncha mean "Michigander?"

I'm just waiting for the day that a hardcore Timbers fan hangs themselves from the ridiculous scarves they wear. That'd be awesome.
