Looks like the Mariners and As have ads on the right sleeves for the Japan opening series. I really hope ads dont come to MLB uniforms....

 

Teams have been doing that since 2000 for the Japan opening series.   Sometimes they even added helmet ads too.

I'm usually pretty wary of the slippery slope, but after twenty years it seems unlikely that this is a test case or step on the way.

Supposedly the song Dirty Water is the Red Sox victory anthem....Google is your friend.

Considering the chorus, it isn't hard to understand why the Red Sox adopted it.

 

Quote

Well I love that dirty water
Oh, Boston, you're my home

 

Of course, the song was originally a sort of ironic and back-handed.  But given enough time, irony becomes sincerity and jokes about the Boston Strangler are less about the fear of living in a dangerous place and more about "look how tough we are".

Don’t you mean Boston Stranglers? Albert DeSalvo was killed trying to take back his confession, the DNA test was both conclusive and inconclusive, and most FBI profilers agree that there were multiple assailants.

 

I’m sorry, but it’s a pet peeve of mine.

I spent way too long trying to figure out how The Foo Fighters' "Dirty Water" related to Boston in any way. Your song makes more sense.

I think your beef is with the Standells; they’re the ones who wrote it, not me. 😎

True.

 

Back on topic, the Giants' one is delightfully dull. #SFGiants is better than #forevergiant or #evenyear. #SFGiants is less prone to picking apart.
