Dodgers Fall to Fruitcake Friars

tom petty doesn't like new wave

August 12, 2017 by Shannon Michael Smith

Somewhere, a withered Tom Petty is stretching out his scarecrow arms and whispering, “You got lucky, babe…”

Yep, Los Dogs fell to scuffling San-D…final score: Padres 4, Dodgers 3.

Everyone knows the regular season is already over…bring on Shocktober…

The rascalsoftheravine staff may dress as The Heartbreakers again for Halloween…

Tom’s video for “You Got Lucky” was insane…inspired by The Road Warrior, right?

Yeah, like many other videos of the time…“Synchronicity 2” by The Police is an example…Escape From New York influenced a lot too…

‘80s videos are extremely paranoid, it’s hard to find one that isn’t. “Pressure” by Billy Joel, “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell, “Twilight Zone” by Golden Earring…the list goes on and on…I wonder why?

Perhaps it was the copious amounts of cocaine everyone was snorting…pair that up with Nuke fears and you have a hell of a stew…

Does Tom loathe video games? He sure took umbrage to the presence of Astro Invader…

Yeah, he seems like a Brit-New Wave hater too…yet there’s a synth that dominates “You got lucky”…bloody hypocrite…

Who’s pitching tonight?

Oh, that. Noodles will take the hill for Los Dogs.

What about for the Friars?

Jhoulys Chacin…the only thing he’ll be chasin’ during the off-season is a bullet train out of the smoking crater that is the San Diego sports scene…

You don’t think Bolts fans will make the trek to—

No.

But they’re going to sell out Home Depot Corner or Der Weinerschnitzel Center or whatever they’re calling that bandbox now…

Yeah, bandbox says it, it seats about 899 people…

True, this is Ram country, everyone knows it…will Raider fans be able to watch the Las Vegas team from their jail cells?

Unless there’s some kind of lock down again…

Where can i get some long Dickie shorts, little boy socks, black Vans, and a Howie Long jersey?

It’s pretty much the standard uniform at most correctional facilities…

Until next time, mirth-seekers!!!
