Jesus Wept

Depressingly, traffic on EE has spiked since Johnny Damon’s signing with the New York Yankees. From Orange County, California to Orange County, New York, readers are hitting this April post about the Fever Pitch gala featuring none other than Michelle Damon née Mangan.

I’ll actually miss Michelle’s “In Style” segments. As twitch124 pointed out, she wasn’t the typical baseball wife and sustained much criticism for not conforming to the norm. She was unapologetic about being different and pursuing media attention. In some ways, I prefer that celebrities acknowledge their publicity-seeking impulses rather than disguise their desires behind the pretense of charitable acts.

At least there are two hits for Curtis Leskanic, whose 2004 story should be better publicized. He pitched 1 and 1/3 shutout innings in Game 4 of the ALCS, throwing so hard he ended his career. Perhaps he should hire Michelle’s agent.



Thank god somebody agrees w/ me on the Leskanic story. Honestly, somebody needs to write about that a lot more. He friggin gave up the rest of his career to save the 2004 Red Sox in a sense. Him and Bill Mueller are two heroes that are never talked about.

I first heard about Leskanic's sacrifice in the link you posted on the rsn.net bords, Piney. The announcement of his retirement was overshadowed by ballgate and other media-induced distractions.

Next year, I have a few projects that I want to undertake, and one would be getting in touch with Mr. Leskanic. Another involves getting DiMaggio, Doerr, and Pesky's autograph on my copy of The Teammates.

MIchelle Damon was disgusting. Period. You actually like no talent bimbos? I'm disappointed.
