What The Heck Is This?
Parked on 6th Avenue – for what purpose I have no idea – as bad a touch of sportsmanship (no matter how often it might’ve been used) as I’ve ever seen.
And worse, what’s with the Hot Wheels paint job?
Wow. That’s not just unsportsmanlike, but in extremely bad taste.
As for the Hot Wheels paint job? Well, juvenile minds have limited creative ability….
What is the insignia on top of the casket?
Nothing to do with baseball, guys:
From the Gothamist website:
“Coming to an off Broadway stage near you this March: Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison in “27 Heaven”. About, you guessed it, the most prominent members of The 27 Club. No word yet on where the show will run, the press release states that it’s “the featured act at this year?s prestigious National Arts Club annual benefit on March 16 in New York…27 Heaven begins an extended run in New York?s off Broadway District in March 2007”. The National Arts Club?s board members include Martin Scorcese, Uma Thurman and Robert Redford.
The play was written by New York Times “best selling author/award winning writer” Ian Halperin and author Todd Shapiro, and directed by Adam Roebuck (of Wedding Singer and ****** Monologues). “
There was a play running off-Broadway (and later elsewhere in the country) a couple of years ago called “27 Heaven”, based on the imagined conversations in heaven of some of the members of “the 27 Club” (famous rock stars dying at age 27): Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Kurt Cobain. While pulling the car out of mothballs and parking it may be some kind of statement, at least the paint job is explained.
Thanks for the explanation, minky. I’m glad that’s all it is. It’s still rather ugly, but not nearly as ugly as I thought it was before your explanation, if you get my drift.
Sure looks like a Phillies “P” on the casket and wasn’t this the Yanks’ 27th WS win?
Any thoughts on the bizarre Sama Sosa sighting this weekend?
As a Yankee fan, this is just one more of those instances I hate for being lumped–indirectly–with the knuckleheads. Then again–and not to condone this example of poor sportsmanship–with the level of Yankee hate out there, if the Bombers had lost we would’ve probably seen much, much worse than this.
ya just always gotta gripe about something and put others down don’tcha Olbermann? ….get over yourself …people are having fun enjoying this Victory and reveling in harmless fun. give me a freakin break, you perpetual naysayer.
@minkyb63 – Thanks for explaining this. I was wondering what the “27 Heaven” on the car had to do with anything. I’m guessing a lot of people were confused by that monstrosity of a vehicle. 🙂
@tbone – If you’d read minkyb63’s posts, you’d know this customized hearse has nothing to do with any victory or “harmless fun”. Quit spoiling the fun for those of us who enjoy this blog. Go back to Freeperville, Olbywatch, or whichever sewer you emerged from. You’ll be happier among your own kind. 😉
Especially tacky considering the genuine, still-fresh grief Phillies fans are going through over the April death of broadcaster Harry Kalas.
A complaint. I hope the Yankees will pull the plug on the PC Richards whistle after each strike out in a Yankees game. Do you realize that years from now when people watch the World Series of 2009 or any Yankees game of 2009, they will hear whistles after every strike out done at Yankee Stadium. Who’s the idiot that allows a commercial whistle after each strike out? I refuse to buy anything from PC Richards and any company that advertises on the home plate wall at Yankee or any stadium in the MLB.
Good to see the Yanks defeat FAILADELPHIA.
