Classic Quotes from the Upper Deck – August 10th, 2010

Actual comments from fans in the 500 Level during Toronto’s 7-5 loss to Boston:

  • “What I don’t want you to do is chug it.  But…I can’t sell you another one ’til you’re done” – beer vendor in section 534, while winking
  • “Double it up!  Oh you idiot!  Why wouldn’t he go for the double play?” – guy behind me after Johnny Mac flipped the ball to Aaron Hill with 2 outs to end the inning
  • “Boo!  Get him back to the minors!” – after Travis Snider struck out to end the 6th
  • “Come on!  Russ Adams would have made that play.” – said after Hill successfully turned a double play.  I didn’t understand…

The following are all from the same group of guys who moved behind us in the 7th inning.  Enjoy.

  • “Way to go Cito!” – after Shawn Camp allowed  HR to Lowell in the 8th

  • “Stieb?  I thought it was Dave Steve.” – yep, these people sit in the 500’s…
  • Idiot 1: “Why isn’t Kelly Gruber on the wall of fame”  Idiot 2: “Dude, I think Gruber’s still playing.”
