I would have paid real money to see Albert Pujols charge the mound on Rich Harden just then. It would have been EPIC.

eta: a handful of screencaps from the 8/11/03 game )
The school's network went down around 12:15 am with something like two innings left to go in the A's game. SO I MISSED THE END OF THE GAME. Which is, of course, probably why the A's finally got the division taken care of.

[Bad username or site: oakchick75 / @ livejournal.com] is far better at sniffing these things out than I, but a look around this morning when I should have been reading for Family Law reveals:

+ Three minutes of raw footage of the clubhouse celebration via Action36 - stream // download. (I have little to say except that I kinda want to put Eric Chavez in my pocket.)
+ Screencaps of the on-the-field celebration here. (Under the story on the clinch is a link).
+ There's an FSN interview with Rich on MSN video, but there seems to be a problem with that site's encoding. I can bring up the vid on comcast but I can't rip from them, because they are smarter than me. Grr. I may take caps later if I can. Or record the video on my camera and put it up that way. Whatever. I'm probably completely overestimating interest in a 1 minute clip of Rich babbling.
+ MLB.com has audio interviews with several players here.

I fail to understand the point of offering people free downloads of the clinch game when mlb.tv couldn't even be bothered to carry the winning team's broadcast of the clincher or the celebration, but ANYWAY. The Seattle broadcast did have a little of the field celebration, so after class I'll see if I can clip more of that than MLB.com did. The stream is craaaaaawling right now. Check this space later if you're interested in that.

Saw some of the FSN footage on ESPN last night and thought to myself, God, Barry looks so sad! In her post, [Bad username or site: roxybritain / @ livejournal.com] characterizes Barry as looking rather "wistful" during the celebration. I like that description better. But I don't know what he's looking all wistful for - no one's MAKING him take a big money contract he can't possibly live up to in New York :( Stay in Oakland, man.

I have, like, no Oakland Athletics communities friended, so if those of you who do spot any of the clubhouse footage floating around those comms - give a sister a heads up? Please and thanks.

eta: Also, the local CBS affiliate had 10 minutes of raw celebration footage (with an amusing warning that it might contain explicit language) on their website -- stream // download. Interviews with Mach, Big Frank, Milton, Jay, and Chavvy.

Two strikeouts in the first (and a walk), and then he struck out the side in the second.

Frodo Rich Harden lives!

Just a public service post, okay? I don't even like his skinned rabbit looking ass like that.

Dan Haren is growing SOMETHING on his face that makes him look like a poor man's Justin Verlander. Dan Haren and I are so over.

ETA: Assuming technology works like it's supposed to, here's an asf of the top of the third. Gaudin's up and throwing, so it doesn't look like Rich will come out again. Which would be good, because I have stuff I should be doing right now.

(Yeah. Asf of Rich checking out like a senior during finals.)

So, on my birthday, someone gifted me with an LJ gift certificate. I didn't say anything at the time, because I thought it was [Bad username or site: johnnybvo / @ livejournal.com], and I was going to see him the next day anyway. But when he and I met up for breakfast, he gave me a hardback of Runaways, volume 1, (which I'm insanely excited about, btw, because I fell in love with the art in that title ages ago), so it must have been someone else. I'm not gonna ask who, since I guess the fact that you sent it anonymously means you don't want me to know, but thank you so much! It was very sweet of you, and I really appreciate it.

Can't hang around long (**ignores cheers from peanut gallery**); have to gather up my things and get back to VA, but:

+ a handful of screencaps from the last few innings of yesterday's LAD @ OAK game. Because I have this thing where I'm as amused by a blown Huston save as I am pleased with an Oakland win, and last night provided both.

And, MLB.com's highlight clip of Crosby's at bat and the walk off:

(asf - 3mbs)

(wmv - 3mbs)

The Marlins swept Toronto, bringing their winning streak to 8 games. If Atlanta loses tonight, the Marlins will be out of last place in the NL East. And because I make no sense, I now begin to feel bad for the Braves, even though I'd be thrilled for someone other than the Fish to finish last in the East, and all the Braves have done for the past 8 years is annoy me. **laughs** What can I say. I like to make my fandom a complicated thing.
