I don't like losing in extra innings. I especially don't like losing after making a comeback. I'm going to pretend like that didn't happen.

One thing that did happen was Scott Hairston got tossed for flipping his bat. I've learned through the years that if you're gonna make somebody mad, you should try to make them as mad as possible. Wait... I think it was more that if somebody's gonna make you mad, you should laugh in their face because it shows that you're not mad and that will make the other person more mad, which is satisfying.

Or you can ignore the person, which makes that person mad. Like when they start yelling at you, start up a conversation with somebody nearby and pretend that the instigator is invisible. Like as soon as the ump says something, Scotty could've looked at the sky and said, "Weird how we get blue skies as soon as July hits."

I think the Padres should hire me and jbox as "smart-ass consultants". Between my communication skills and jbox's current standing as The Biggest Smart Ass Mentor Knows, we could teach the Padres how to provide maximum irritation with minimal consequence.
