House of Cards Insults Our Intelligence
Sox Must Take the Season Tickets

The House calls poured into Dennis & Callahan Friday morning from the manager of the Rattlesnake, Tony Castagnozzi, who D&C know personally, and other friends who said they spoke to Chris and House told them he was "waving the runners around... doing the windmill" when he swiped at Gary Sheffield. Problem is, the embattled season ticket holder reportedly told Sox officials he "collided" with Sheffield while attempting to swipe for the ball when he was throwing his arm towards Sheffield's hat/head. He also told his fiancee he was going for the ball, not windmilling the runners around. Chris can't even get his own story straight. How could you be going for a ball on the ground when you're looking toward the plate, so not to be caught, and blindly flailing your arm in the direction of a major league baseball player where you could clip him in the face or knock off his hat at best? At least House finally admits, and the slow-mo videotape confirms, that he made contact with Sheffield. But why does a veteran season ticket holder, who should know better than anyone, try to mess with Sheff, and inject himself into a play which could have possibly cost the Sox the game if Ortiz and Varitek are pulled back a base? No excuses. No mulligans. No more lies. Pull the tickets. Not for life, but maybe half the season should do it.

Bringing Down Chris House

Watch out
You might get what you’re after
Cry babies
It’s strange but he’s no stranger
“He’s an ordinary guy”
Bringing down Chris House

Hold tight wait till the talking’s over
Hold tight we’re in for nasty answers
He has got to go away
Bringing down Chris House

Where’s your ticket? Pack your bag: time for clippin’ players over
Park transformation is near
Close enough you went too far, cheap excuses what they are
Fightin’ Sheffield with beer

All wet
GAP guy might need arraignment
Hey Joe
He’s walking in broad daylight
Three hun-dred six-ty five re-plays
Bringing down Chris House

It was once friendly place A-Rod said the same himself
Some fans are a disgrace
Bozos booze it up at games baby what did you except
Gonna make us ashamed

Chris House
S’out of the ordinary
That night
“Don’t want to hurt nobody”
Some things sure can sweep us off our feet
Bringing down Chris House

No visible means of support and you have not seen nuthin’ yet
Everyone sees it different
I don’t know what you expect staring into the TV set
Fighting Bombers with beer

With the use of high-definition television, the Boston P.D. came to the conclusion that House wasn't reaching for the ball that was hit by Jason Varitek. "They have looked at it a long time, and thanks to HD, it's clear what the fan was up to," a source close to the Boston P.D. told The Post yesterday. "He wasn't going for the ball." -- New York Post
