Just when you thought Lou Piniella couldn’t get any crazier, he sat through a three-hour dinner at the White House on Monday with President George Bush and Tim McCarver. Crazier still is that Piniella did it without punching anyone in the head.
From the link:
First Fan: Fox’s Tim McCarver joined several current and former baseball players, including new Chicago Cubs manager Lou Piniella, for a three-hour private dinner with President Bush at the White House on Monday. McCarver says the ex-Texas Rangers managing partner is studying intelligence on the latest effort to turn around what some consider a lost cause: “He’s very interested in the Cubs and how Lou will do with them. He’d obviously done his homework.”
“George Bush is studying intelligence on the latest effort to turn around what some consider a lost cause.” Where have I heard that before? Oh, I get it. Bravo, USA Today, you snarky little bitch.
Thanks to microrecording technology, Fire Lou Piniella! was able to capture a snippet of conversation between Tim McCarver and Lou Piniella at the dinner.
TIM: I never liked the sirloin that they used to make back when I used to have sirloin that they used to make when I played ball.
TIM: I think this steak may be the greatest steak ever to go through a digestive system as a young steak while learning how to be a steak.
LOU: You are a horse’s ass.
TIM: It’s hard to catch the slurve because when you have your fingers positioned to throw the slurve it’s designed to slurve out of your fingers and slurve downward at a slurvey angle. Slurve.
LOU: Are you going to eat that lobster claw?
