Baseball Over Here
Thursday, October 15, 2009
Killing time until 8:07 tonightWith a question raised in a St. Louis Post-Dispatch mailbag: if you were the Cardinals, would you trade Albert Pujols for Clayton Kershaw and Matt Kemp?
No, no one is really suggesting it. It's more of a "would you rather . . ." kind of game. And for the record, my usual answers to these things are Veronica over Betty; Betty over Wilma; Bailey over Jennifer; and Mary Ann over Ginger.

Veronica over Betty? Really? You’re the first I’ve heard say that.
The others are no-brainers.

It’s a purely physical thing. I like brunettes. I’m sure Betty is better marriage material, but I’m already married, if you see what I’m sayin’ here . . .

Xena or Gabrielle?

Gabrielle. In that instance, my fear of Lucy Lawless trumps my normal preference for brunettes.

Over on the left coast game’s on at 5, and it still seems to far off for me.

I go Jennifer over Bailey myself. Maybe its just receptionist > intern (or whatever you call Bailey’s job)...

Oh no, Bailey over Jennifer, and it’s not even close.
Never thought extensively about Veronica/Betty, but I’d probably lean Veronica as well. And, of course, Mary Ann over Ginger.
As for Wilma/Betty, I’d probably give it a pass altogether and have another drink.

Bailey for the repressed sexuality that you would think overflow once given the chance, but don’t underestimate Jennifer—she wasn’t a dumb blonde ... I personally prefer Bailey, but that is the closest of the four. So with you on Veronica!
Posted 10/15 at 04:58 PM
The problem I see with Veronica is just that she’s too obvious. Same with Jennifer - it’s not that I think she’s a dumb blonde, it that I think she’s too much the trite cliche.
Of course, to turn the discussion back to baseball, that’s my problem with the Yankees: Too much the obvious trite cliche!

How about a more recent show: Jackie, Donna, or Eric’s Sister?
Posted 10/15 at 05:22 PM
Probably Jackie. She may be a spoiled brat but Donna is a little too “Lumberjack” and Eric’s sister is a controlling little *bleep* to say the least.

If you statheads didn’t live in your Mom’s basement maybe you could find a real girl.

Donna v. Jackie - Used to be Donna, until I saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

I’d say Xena & Donna.
Thing for tall broads.

Okay, here is a total Mom’s basement question: Marge Simpson or Lois Griffin?

Veronica and Xena…who ironically, kind of look alike now that I think of it.
Posted 10/15 at 08:37 PM
Chrissy or Janet?
Posted 10/15 at 11:13 PM
Janet, not even close.
