... Was Better Than the Real One

And Even That Guy Had More on His Fastball Than Beckett
Remy Should Get an Emmy for His Colorful Commentary

Don Orsillo: This is episode three [of NESN’s Sox Appeal] that you’re looking in on… how do you think this is going Jerry?

Remy: … Umm… he’s talking like crazy and she seems to be listening. He’s a leaner… I don’t know… he looks like Dan Roche.

Orsillo: I don’t think Dan wears an earring. I don’t know, I haven’t seen him wear one before, but I guess it’s possible.

Remy: I think he’s nervous, he looks very fidgety.

Orsillo: He’s a leaner..

Remy: He’s a leaner, and his head shakes a lot. I think he’s nervous because he’s on television… I thought that was a phony smile, did you?

Orsillo: Yeah, I think it’s very fake… I don’t think he cares at all what she’s saying…

Remy: I think he cares too much, I think he’s just very nervous… … What’s all this stuff he’s got in front of him? There’s gifts…

Orsillo: He’s got a lot of stuff… look he’s still leaning, you’re right about the leaning… it’s incredible how you picked that out right away

Remy: Look at his head, he’s up, he’s down, he’s all over the place. If you were one of those people, you read faces and all that, I think you’d read that this guy’s very nervous

Orsillo: Too much…

Remy: You gotta sit and you just gotta look deep into their eyes…

Orsillo: Ooooow! [big laughter breaks out]… that was quite a move [see photo above]. Can we get that back in replay, that was…

Remy: Did you see that head move?

Orsillo: Yeah, very nervous. And more drinking!

Remy: And drinking quickly, too …

Orsillo: This isn’t going very well

Remy: Well he thinks it is … … What do they call those people that they read body language all the time, you see them on O’Reilly all the time, he has somebody on there that reads body language, boy they’d be going nuts with that guy, there’s all kinds of stuff going on…

Orsillo: Lots of stuff going on…

Remy: I swear to God Don, I think the best approach is you sit there calmly, look deep into her eyes and say ‘How you doin’?’ and then let it go…

Orsillo: Well, wait a minute, you’re going to have two long innings and then you throw that out there in the beginning of the next inning too, I mean, you gotta have something more than that? [laughing]

Remy: You can always fall back on ‘How you doin’?’, because she’s might be doing different like, three minutes from now than she was doing two minutes ago, you know I mean? …But you gotta look straight into here eyes, you can’t be bobbing and weaving because she can’t focus on you if you’re doing that.

Orsillo: How you doin’? …

Remy: It’s hard to follow this guy…

Orsillo: You just sit back, and become mysterious

Remy: You drop that famous line, ‘I noticed you were sitting here alone, you shouldn’t of been…’ [laughter]

Orsillo: ‘Are your legs tired? Because you’ve been running around in my mind all day…’ [bust out laughter]… [snort] …
