Anatomy of a Page Six Scoop about Joba & Jason

This is what the Daily Murdoch had to say today on its Page Six, which generally does to journalism each day what Joe Lieberman is planning to do to the Democratic Party next week. (Our analysis in italics, like this. Get it?)

"IT would be tough for average Joes to beat a couple of Yankees at baseball," (The writer must not be following the Yanks this year.)

"... but slamming them in a game of beer pong was no sweat." (If Edwar Ramirez had been pitching, grand slamming them would have been no sweat.)

"Last week, Jason Giambi and Joba Chamberlain were celebrating their win against the Kansas City Royals at Southern Hospitality, on Second Avenue..." (This says it all: The Yanks "celebrating" a win at home against Kansas City?)

"... when a table of fans challenged them to a game of the college drinking sport." (Let's guess: Did a couple of those fans happen to have have wandering, bulbous, fleshy, nippled cholumbes protruding from their unholstered upper torsos?)

"Our spy said, "The fans gave them a beating. Toward the end Chamberlain and Giambi got really competitive, but it wasn't enough." (Sounds like a recap of the general season, eh?)

(Thanks to that mystery man, Anonymous, for the tip.)
