Inside Baseball: The IT IS HIGH office party bash


Ohhhhhh! Kaaaaay!

Enough with the e-mails, the letters, the couriers. We give.

Here are the behind-the-scenes shots from our weekly IT IS HIGH tailgate party, staged just before our last dust-up with the Tampa Bay Rays. We went a little overboard, but hey, we deserve it. We've been bustin' tail working on the fundamentals of covering the Yankees, correcitng misschpellings, syntax (heh, heh, we're party animals, get it?) and figuring out who was the sad hack who had to go back to the minors and work at Rays Index for a little more seasoning. (Sorry, Roger, we'll miss ya.)

Anyways, we got so carried away at the tailgate we missed the game! El duque tried a make-up post and used a Blue Jays game picture instead of a Rays game picture, but, hey, who cares!

So call off the lawyers, here are the shots.

This is Whitey Fraud, with a vixen trying to eat his Yankee hat.
This is I'm Bill White, with Mons Meg at his right wearing her mother's homemade cowboy hat. The Jersey girl on his left looks familiar somewhow, but we don't exactly remember the name. Hmmmm.

Wailin' Suzyn is in this photo. We're not saying which one to protect the writer's identity as leader of the IT IS HIGH I-Team.

This is Prince Frankenstein, on the left. What can we say? The guy's livin' the dream in Seattle!

We cleaned up Alphonso a little for this shot. He's the one in the "81" jersey.

Livin' up to his name is BernBabyBern, who got a little too much sun down here, not to mention a hilariously sweet haircut.

And, of course, the guy who spills his guts on these pages for our readers every day, el duque. (Honestly, his ego's not that big.)

(Seriously, looking for a laugh today? Check out Hot Chicks with Douchebags, the place where our party shots are stored for safe keeping.)

Where's the shot you got of Spitzer's whore with Farnsy?

Good thing my wife doesn't use a computer so she won't see that picture of me and my cousin. (We're pretty close.)

I'm a little surprised that we haven't heard from Alphonso.

I'm wondering if the two women he's posing with wore that gummy kind of paint kids use in elementary school or if it was more high class?

Alphonso is still home, sticking his head in the bucket of icewater.

Alphonso is suffering from a burning sensation when he tinkles.

I forget to use sunscreen ONE DAY ... yeesh.

Dr. Ben Dover.

Calling Dr. Ben Dover. Jason Dittle needs assistance in linkage. Jason Dittle needs assistance in linkage.

Dear Suzyn,

It is not paint. It is a combination of honey, carmelized sugar and food dyes.

I concocted it myself.

The caloric content is off the chart. The aroma is intoxicating and irresistable.

It can ony be removed with what we call in the medical profession, "lips and tongues."

But sometimes you just have to give yourself over to something really sweet.

Thanks for asking.
