I Once Pitched a Perfect Game in Ken Griffey Baseball for the N64, But No One Was There To See It

I don't care how mad I am...how mediocre the taste is...or how drunk I am...but I would never, ever, just cavalierly throw a slice of pizza at someone. Actually, it's more like some namby-pamby lob with minimal impact upon contact. Which is...come on. If you're going to waste a slice and get ejected, give it all you got. Samus Aran that shit!

Speaking of which, found some excellent YouTube vids courtesy of gametrailers.com.

The Top Ten Best and Worst Games Ever, Pt. 1 and 2--of all the shit games, the only one I can personally attest to is "Pac Man" on Atari. Of the best, no real complaints, but putting Super Mario 64 and Super Mario World together in one ranking...bullshit. Just throw the other ones in there then, give the whole series a spot! Super Mario 64 is the greatest video game ever, bar none. The fact it isn't number one is wrong enough, but to lump it with another Mario game on the list? That's annoying on a Hammer Bros. in world 8-3 level.

The Top Ten Women of Gaming--or as I like to call it, Samus, a couple other worthy women, and TNA with guns.

The Top Ten Video Game Weapons of All Time--Very few folk relate to the "use them in games so you don't use them in real life" argument like me. I've always been uneasy around guns in my personal experience with them, but I'm enamored of the different shooters in the history of video games. The more ludicrous, the better. I mean...the Cerebral Bore? The Gravity Gun? Why would you want to use a toilet as ammo? Well, why not?

Speaking in pure gamer mode now, can't believe that the Golden Gun from "GoldenEye" didn't make it. One shot, one kill, and it's a golden gun, the premier weapon in one of the all-time legendary games. Sigh. I really wish I still had the Nintendo 64.

    It didn't make that much sense to me, but apparently there was some trash-talking before the pizza throwing incident. It was awesome regardless.

  2. Haha, it has backstory! Incredible.

    But I reiterate...no excuse for wasting pizza. Ever.

  3. I don't understand the video. I'm at work and don't have any sound, so that might be the reason. The game is in Boston and the player trying to make the defensive play is from the Angels. The fan doesn't appear to be reaching into the field of play. Should the fans have gotten out of the way of the opposing team's players? Why would other Red Sox fans get pissed about it?

  4. "Jason Sole just wanted to catch a foul ball. Matt Madore was merely trying to eat some pizza.

    Drew lofted a foul toward Box 82, which juts into left field foul territory. Sole stretched for the ball as the Angels’ Garret Anderson reached the stands. They collided, spilling beer everywhere, and the ball bounced away.
    As if the slo-mo spill and requisite grimacing weren’t enough, a large slice of cheese pizza then arced perfectly through the crowd, hitting Sole’s shoulder and face. Once he realized what hit him, he went ballistic while girlfriend Anya Ho, 29, tried to wipe off his face.
    A few rows away, Madore and buddy Danny Kelly beamed. It turns out Sole had given them grief about having a large pizza in the stands just moments before the at-bat. He wanted to know where they got it.
    “He turned around and said something like, ‘Your mother,’ ” Sole said.
    “No,” interjected Ho. “He said, ‘The pizzeria.’ ”
    Either way, all parties were annoyed.
    “They had been giving us (expletive) about it,” Madore said. “Next thing I know, there’s a fly ball to left field and it goes foul and my buddy says, ‘You want some pizza now?’ And he hits him right in the face. Hey, the guy wasn’t paying attention. When you’re in the stands you’ve got to be ready for anything - a foul ball, a flying slice of pizza, everything.”

    from the Boston Herald.

    Had nothing to do with the game, it would seem, just...one guy upset that they had a pizza. Hmm. That makes maybe a little more sense.

  5. I agree, Samus is the best female character in gaming history.
