    The contrast is fine, but I keep having to adjust the horizontal hold.

    Yeah, I decided to google it and waste my time.

    Typical Boston clown. No respect for anything but Boston. Hates his own life.

    When the Yankees win, I smile first because I love seeing the Yankees win, and I smile second because I love hearing the haters like this cry.

    And Alex Cora is doing a great job at being an asshat manager already. Maybe they can dig more into his fiasco in Houston... Chump.

    Gee, and I can't blame that on my phone since I post on a real computer.

    Alex Cora thinks it sets a bad precedent to not make the Yankees play 10 hours of baseball and cross an international border in a 26 hour span.

    Eh. Alex Cora is just a guy willing to say what he thinks the locals want to hear. There's ZERO chance the Red Sox players feel the same way. He's a whore.

    Patriots Day is a state holiday in Massachusetts - the reason for the 11A start is so the crowd can then get to the finish of the Boston Marathon.

So I'm naturally suspicious whenever that term is trotted out.

    Don't get me wrong, sometimes a conspiracy theory is just a conspiracy theory, but often times its getting dangerously close to a hidden truth some people would much rather keep a secret, so its basically used as an Orwellian shaming tactic.

    BTW its very effective too, thats why its been used for as long as I have been alive and a lot longer, to the point where its essentially a part of the American lexicon. Why stop using something that works?

    Oh and for the record, I do believe ESPN, located in Bristol CT., does have a Red Sox/Patriots bias. I think its obvious.

    Oh I know, I am a Boston University Alum and used to live in Kenmore Square right across from Fenway.
    Was actually a fun day there, big holiday and if weather was nice, everyone was out and about, like a festival. I always enjoyed it and even went to a Patriot's day game once..
    I used to think I was crazy... Now I am sure of it..

    It appears that the Patriots Day games go back to 1903

    I think you mean "de ríen." "Bienvenue " means "welcome" in the sense of "Welcome to New York," but not "you’re welcome."

    It’s the thought that counts, though.

    You are probably right - it took me five years (we started French I in 7th grade) to get my required two years of a foreign language in high school.

    EDIT - I knew I learned it that way growing up. I grew up in northern Vermont and my maternal grandmother was from Trois Rivieres, Quebec.

    In France, “bienvenue” means “welcome” as in “welcome to France” or “welcome to Paris”.

    However, in Québécois French, “bienvenue” is also used to say “you’re welcome”. It’s then used the same way as “de rien”.

George really would have flipped and said that. It is not like he has not said that before he would have put the ball in there court instead of pleading with them he would have told ESPN and MLB if it is not changed we are not going to be there.


    What would ESPN DO? as is ESPN controls what is said during the game but what if no game? You know George would not care and i bet you 1000$ by the next day the game would be changed.


    But this is the new boss not the old boss so it will get moved i would guess but it will get spun as them doing us a favor when the Boss would have made them look silly in the papers.
    Couldn't agree more just as I couldn't agree more with aeromac76's points. I, too, have been dismayed by The Yankees' brass lack of forcefulness (or bluster) on this matter. You have to protect your team, your players - and your team's integrity.

    If those silly asides that interrupt the game every two minutes don't happen - well, that will just be a side-benefit.

    My wife's family is from Montreal and we visit frequently. Walk into any restaurant, department store, or local "dépanneur" to buy a 6-pack, and you'll always hear "bienvenue" as a reply to "merci", so it is also used in the context of "you're welcome".

    "De rien" is also used, but it's considered more of a slang expression - literally means "it's nothing".

    Same with De nada in Spanish.
