Jon Lester's No-Hitter Celebration Complete With NESN F-Bomb

Monday, May 19, 2008


Jon Lester dominated the Royals earlier tonight to the tune of 9.0IP, 9 K's, 2 Walks, 0 Hits which is Algonquin for a no hitter. Enjoy the celebration and the subsequent f-bomb at the 1:25 mark.....



You know what? Good for whoever said that on-air (my guess is Timlin). No hitters are unfuckingbelivable and should be described as such. Good times in Boston as Cancer Survivor Jon Lester completes one of the most exciting feats in Baseball.

(P.S.- In announcing news Rem Dog and Orsillo had yet another epic night. I got word that Remy's mic was left on during the commercial and he started bitching about American Airlines and I witnessed them making of a girl with "Dolly Parton-like Hair" at one point. Good times.)

With the gross number of these you find, how do you not have an "F-Bomb Alert" tag, or something like that?

I heard it during ESPN's NESN simulcast of the 9th inning but I didn't even think twice because:
A. it happens so often now that its pretty much commonplace
B. I agreed with whoever said it.

That wasn't Timlin dropping the F-bomb, it was Manny Delcarmen. :)

I know the cancer angle is pretty played out, but it's still pretty gd impressive.

Imagine being in your early twenties and about to get to the majors and finding out you have cancer, then still being able to beat it and come back to throw a no-hitter.

Sure the angle has been beaten to death, but it's still crazy.

The blonde chick section was hilarious. It was some random blonde with giant hair (so giant I feel bad for the people behind her), and they were trying to figure out if she was Dolly Parton or not.

The Red Sox should have been aborted.

Actually, it doesn't even sound like "unfuckingbelivable" to me. It sounds like he's saying something else, maybe even "unbloodybelievable" (though I can't imagine a Sox player saying that.)

I think the best part of Remy and Orsillo's calling of the game was that they didn't mention the term "no hitter" at all. Joe Buck would've said it eight times by the 3rd inning.

You know what would have really impressed me? If he had beaten cancer while pitching a no-hitter. That really would have been something.

Yeah well Orsillo and Remy not mentioning the actual words "no hitter"... fine, they did everything BUT say those words, and the camera panning the scoreboard 0 - 0 - every 20 seconds, the showing of Bucholtz highlights, again without saying the actual "no hitter" words... "Lester is alone with his thoughts". I know you don't say the words for fear of jinxing, but geeze, it was creepy.

Regarding the cancer aspect being overplayed...WTF? Cancer blows and anytime you beat it, that is a big frickin' deal. Period.

I knew it was going to be a great night when at the beginning of the game, NESN was having audio/video problems and thought they'd gone to commercial when in fact Remy and Orsillo were broadcast having a personal conversation. remy took a dump all over American Airlines for some reason, but refrained from the proverbial F-bomb.

A truly wonderful accomplishment for Jon Lester. Tremendous story.


And thank goodness it happened to Red Sox Nation - that fanbase hasn't had much go right for it in a long time. Wait. What?

I have a good friend who had cancer at a young age. Many more are struggling with it right now. That any of them can look at this guy, as one in a million as he is, and derive hope and comfort and optimism is a great thing. Good for him, good for us, good for everybody.

ZING!

I dunno though. The Royals are pretty dang good contact hitters this year, but lack power, so I think it was pretty impressive.
