Rick Sutcliffe On Bill Murray's Bet That Got Him The Lone Stolen Base Of His Career
Tuesday, May 27, 2008
Rick Sutcliffe is back in full swing as an announcer and every paper out there is trying to get an interview with him following his bout with Cancer. I'm pretty sure the ones that follow the one in the KC Star won't be able to top this tidbit that the paper got when asking Sut about his friendship with Bill Murray....
Sitting in the booth, [Steve] Stone and [Bill] Murray had to stall while a new pitcher warmed up. Murray looked at Stone and said, “I betcha a case of beer Sutcliffe steals second.”
Stone laughed and pointed out Sutcliffe had never even attempted to steal a base. He pointed out Sutcliffe had a bad hamstring. He pointed out Sutcliffe was not exactly the world’s fastest human being.
“But,” Sutcliffe remembered Stone saying, “I’ll take the bet because I’d like to win a case of beer from you.”
The pitcher was still warming up when word spreads and a fan yelled, “Hey Sut, Murray just bet Steve Stone a case of beer you’ll steal second!”
Standing on first base, Sutcliffe decided: Screw it. I’m going.
“All of a sudden the pitcher comes down and I tell my mind to go but my body won’t move and I literally almost fell down,” he said.
Then Expos manager Buck Rodgers yelled to first baseman Andres Galarraga, ‘Play behind him, he ain’t frickin’ going anywhere!’ ”
Sutcliffe took off running. All 6-7 of the Red Baron hauling *** for second base just to mess with Cubs announcer Steve Stone.
“I am gone,” Sutcliffe said. “He comes down and looks over. Well I’m halfway to second. I’m going, ‘Ah, he got me.’ Well the dummy goes to home so now I’ve got to get going again. But there’s still a play. That’s how slow I am.”
The throw. The slide. He’s safe.
“I look up into the booth and Murray’s going crazy and I kind of gave him a little whatever,” Sutcliffe said, reenacting a manly head bob. “I throw a shutout, I steal a base, and we were locked for life.”
How awesome is that? What happened to the days in Baseball when there was drinking and betting in the booth??? I would certainly poke fun at it, but I'd rather have those type of play-by-players over people who don't care about their job as an announcer. Good times.
I think we have a legend here at Bolttalk and that legend when it comes to friends is Shammy. :icon_toast: :icon_banana: :bow:
Congrats on the 108 friends and counting. :icon_toast:
That is impressive. :icon_toast:
Like I told Thumper .....
He spent a lot of time upgrading the place to make it fun and friendly, so I thought I'd help people to explore it a little by sending out a ton of friend requests. Nothing more than that and to just have fun.
..... and I got to coin a new term ..... friend ho :lol:
Easy now, if you keep this up he'll never get that head of his back into the cab.
He got a real housecleaning: Nude maid steals $40,000
10:06 PM EDT, May 27, 2008
TAMPA - A nude maid cleaned up good at a Florida man's home.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says the maid stole more than $40,000 from a Cheval home despite not wearing any clothes.
The 50-year-old man hired the maid from the Internet on Friday to clean his suburban Tampa home.
Authorities say the woman arrived at the home in a one-piece, light colored dress. She took off the dress and cleaned the house for $100-per-hour.
Sheriff's office spokeswoman Debbie Carter says the man told deputies he left the maid alone in the bedroom to clean.
When the man's wife came home from vacation, she discovered $40,000 in jewelry missing from their bedroom.
Police are investigating.
I think there are some parts to this story that are missing .... :lol:
Gotta look back in the "obits" section.
$100/hr nekkid maids?
She stole the wife's jewels?
The husband now has had to admit to his wife about having a $100/hr nekkid maid who stole her jewels. That conversation probably didn't go over very well.
What was he doing that he missed seeing the nekkid maid leaving with $40,000 worth of stuff?
That dude is toast. :lol:
Oh that guy is having a BAD day. Hopefully he has good homeowners insurance.
I'm soooo tired... Don't know why... Might have to hit the hay early tonight and it's only about 8:30 here. :icon_shrug: :lol:
Who wants some reps before I turn in?? :icon_banana:
THE HILLBILLY MIRROR!!!
After living in the remote wilderness of West Virginia all his life, an
old Hillbilly decided it was time to visit the big city. In one of the
stores he picks up a mirror and looks in it. Not ever having seen one
before, he remarked at the image staring back at him, "How about that!
Here's a picture of my daddy.
"He bought the 'picture', but on the way home he remembered his wife, didn't
like his father. So he hung it in the barn and every morning before leaving
for the fields, he would go there and look at it.
His wife began to get suspicious of these many trips to the barn. One day
after he left, she searched the barn and found the mirror. As she looked
into the glass, she fumed, "So that's the ugly ***** he's runnin around
Just how do you write that claim up without the agent laughing in your face? Do insurance companies pay off for stupid guys who get ripped off by hookers undressed as nekkid $100/hr maids?
This is a really *****in site-
This is a challenging test given to seniors and freshmen of several American universities. Harvard seniors do better than anyone, and they score a D, according to the website. I always thought 69% was an F. That's the average score of Harvard seniors.
Take the test youreslves. It is challenging. There are 60 multiple choice questions, so it takes a little time.
I suspect most of us, regardless of our educational levels, will do better than the Harvard senior class.
My single neighbor just came over and asked me to cook for him.... Fried him up some good Mahi Mahi. Then I gave him $20 and sent him to the store to pick up some supplies for a little project I'm doing in my BR. Little does he know that Carrie plans for him to do the project too. :icon_banana: :lol:
Head cold kickin my arse today...
Man, my kids need to stop being generous with the germs!
TOTALLY cool site, Toby.........brings back a lotta memories from the old days. Of course, I was a mere slip of a girl back then:yes:
Thanks for the link!
Brought back alotta memories for me too, Darlin, when I was jes a snot-nosed punk kid :yes: :lol:
Someone musta felt sorry for me and donated 1000 Boltbucks :icon_eek:
Much thanx to whomever y'all are
Man, the fuq'in Pads and Spurs are killin me :icon_sad: :icon_evil:
That's a scary thought!
I scored 75%, which according to the site is slightly above average. Whoopee............I thought I knew more than that. I have an undergrad degree and have lived in this nation for nearly half a century, so I guess I expected better from myself.
Thanks, Toby.......very thought-provoking.
