The 17th perfect game in baseball history, and it was thrown by AZ's own Randy Johnson!
I dont know if anyone cares about baseball, but I think its cool!

Anyone see him talking to media last week and said he wouldn't even come watch an Diamondbacks game-he would rather take his family to the movies

Baseball is only sits only one level lower on the lamemeter.
It's only slightly lamer than golf.

J/K.
Thats cool I guess.
[edit: i really do think baseball and golf are the two sports of the sports that should be wiped from the face of the earth, but that's just me.]

Incorrect quote. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

He said, in response to how he felt about the low attendance, that with the way the D-backs have been playing he wouldn't even come to a game. With the cost of tickets, he'd rather take his family to a movie.
Nothing wrong with that, I fully agree. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif to his first perfect game.

Re: Randy threw a perfect game! (volklover)

you gotta think about how much time he spends away from his family every year, & baseball games would be the last place i'd spend precious time with my wife & children if i were him....anyways, i've always been a 'Big Unit' fan, so http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif to one of the greatest ever.....and he's a mariner, not a diamondback

exactly, I agree too. I have MUCH better things to do with $50. When I say $50 that of course is for DECENT seats and no drinks, snacks, or parking.
If the team were exciting, scoring runs, and pitching well, I might consider it. As long as they are in contention with the Montreal Expos, I will stay away (unless its free.)

Wins a title with the D-Backs, who's jersey do you think he'll be wearing in the Hall of Fame? D-Backs not Seattle... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Randy threw a perfect game! (Perfekt)

I got great tickets to see the SF Gaints on the 31st and got Dodger tickets for later in the year and got them for $13ea! Yes I'm 17 rows up but right past the 1st base line
Its not the price its the talent there putting out there-Terrible bullpen, extremely young infield. Your actually paying to see Finley and Gonzo and thats it
Thats why I don't go to there games- Lack of talent
The Expos have more talent then the Dbacks-and thats sad

At least someone finally got a brain and sent Mantei to the minors.
Hey, I like mantei. He isnt a winner, yet, but he is a crowd pleaser. He is just fun to watch. If they had a team full of fun guys like mantei, people might attend a game or two.

You mean guys who repeatedly give up game-winning homeruns in the 9th? How does that make a game crowd-pleasing?

in that aspect, he isnt a crowd pleaser.
Hi is one in the sense that he has a fun personality, is fun to watch on the mound, and is a fairly charismatic guy. He just is thought of like that guy you knew in high school who everyone loved, even though he was uncoordinated.

everyone who becomes a major star starts out as an Expo.
It's ridiculous. They have to have the best farm system in the world, yet they are a last place team year after year!
