"Last Night Was a Bitch," Other Mothereffing Moments From Rangers' Pre-Game 7 Pep Talks

Categories: Sports
For sports bootleg collectors, this is pure gold: six minutes of motivational cursing from the Texas Rangers' locker room in the moments before Game 7 World Series. Dozens of copies, all from Joe Sports Fan, landed in the Unfair Park in-box overnight, and for most the takeaway is skipper Ron Washington's foul mouth -- as though you'd expect anything less from The OSB the night after The Biggest Sports Disaster in Dallas-Fort Worth History, some of it his doing. But his isn't the only voice you hear on the tape; among others, there's Michael Young too -- The Face of the Franchise, The Butcher of First Base.

Better waker-upper than 12 cups of coffee, but if you haven't figured it out by now, Not Safe For Work. Good Lord, no. No.

Update at 12:54 p.m.: From ESPNDallas's Richard Durrett:
The Texas Rangers are investigating who recorded and then leaked manager Ron Washington's speech prior to Game 7 of the World Series.

"It's unacceptable for this type of thing to be out there," Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Monday. "It was a private moment for the team, not meant for anyone else's ears. We're looking into it, probably won't have additional comments until we've finished that process."

A lot of good that did for the team.  They didn't knock Carpenter anywhere.  Just goes to prove that the classier team won.  I'd bet dimes to dollars that Larussa never had to make a "speech" like this to get his team going.

Wow, it's like ESPN produced a bonus episode of "Deadwood".

"He pitch ball, and ball cross plate, we gonna knock the shit out of it!" (4:07) 

Consider this one vote for this as the Rangers 2012 marketing slogan.

I mean ... I could always open threads when, say, the Stars win, the Cowboys lost or Tyson Chandler speaks. Give you guys a place to play ...?

First of all, I see Ron Washington is stealing my bitM. He didn't say anything about the media or the Cardinals that I haven't said about Joe Tone.

Secondly, did Mr. Tone happen to catch Tony La Russa's most recent career move? Just a thought...

Right when I think I can't love him any more than I already do, he motherfuckin' does this.

Greatness.On a side note, can we open up the Sportatorium or a sports section by a different name? If you posted once a day it would be more than Whitt does on his new Sportatorium blog, and I'm tired of going there and getting asswhipped with junk emails from their other writers. You know we bring the page clicks, cater to the mob already.

We really can handle things if it's just presented in an open-thread format. It's not like Whitt wrote more than 3 sentences for 50% of his posts--we took it from there anyway.

Just quick hit a relevant sports topic and we'll handle the rest.

Case in point, what did Chandler say? Missed that one.

And speaking of Tyson Chandler, I really like that he is calling bullshit on the NBA after all the years of lakers winning and re-signing players now the NBA wants to fug the mavs, total bullsh.  Cubes might want to start his own league if so.  Take all the the big markets and let the NBA have and worry about its small matrket teams.  Id rather watch NYC LA Miami Chicago Dallas and Houston 10 times a year than see Sac and Utah and Minny charlotte even once

yes please, just give us a headline like "Stars Win 5-2, Go"  and then we can write the story with our comments.

Whitt has another blog? Kergo could draw a better audience with a recipe blog.

I'd welcome the doors of the Sportatorium being cracked open and allowing us to step back in the ring with the ghost of almost every Von Erich and Terry Funk. If you could get Lacey Von Erich there I'd proclaim my undying dedication to the Observer for eternity, but I digress.

I still wonder how City of Ate gets like 15 posts a day and sports gets less attention than Rick Perry gave Texas the past month or two. Don't let one lazy-ass former writer ruin it for all of us.

Right there with ya brutha..can't understand how they (Observer proper) would wish to turn away all of our bidness. I don't want to use my clicks over on Whitt's shit, I want to use them over here. 

I've also noticed that the average comment count on a City of Ate post is about 1.5, when we were all over there they were getting 25 or so..and we like to talk sports and eating..Robert, make it sporty eating talk of the greater North Texas region, and kill two Philly yardbirds with one stone..or somesuch.

In all fairness, other than the NFL and college football, there isn't alot of sports going on..(sorry 1st place Stars)....but those two sports do add up to more eyes on the tele than all the other sports combined.

I'll see what we can do. Probably won't be soon, but won't be never either. Promise.

We havent even been screwing around over at the City of Ate that much.  We have been good boys and girls.  We want our sandbox of insanity back.

I'm hoping there will be a reenactment. If you find one, please post the link here.

and instead of the sportatorium we could name it after another lost knocked venue, "Reunion"

Here is a quote  ""For years, the Lakers have been able to win championships and re-sign their players and keep them there so they can go out for another title," Chandler said. "Now, to put that deal in place after we win ours, I don't like it one bit."

and here is the link (sorry RW and tone, not trying to pimp another site)

Kergo continues to fight the good fight over on City of Ate.  I agree wholeheartedly about a Kergo recipe blog too.

All we can do is hit any sports topics hard and maybe, just maybe, we'll get lucky. I can't even humor myself with City of Ate anymore. If I have to try that hard to summon the power to reply, not worth it to me.

They're no fun anymore. When you get called out by Joe Tone to stop commenting in there, slaps you in the face a little.

Just put a Gov. Perry jab in your comment and you'll be sure to ward off any Joe Tone reprimands.
