With Pat Burrell, Life With The Rays Just Got A Little Less Boring
We don't watch "MTV Cribs" enough to know if the video below is from that show or a knock-off. Either way, we are blessed with a 5 minute look inside Pat Burrell's Clearwater Beach condo and more importantly, we learn a little more about who Pat the Bat really is.

Our favorite parts:
  • When asked if he has ever sat at the desk in his office, Burrell responds "Yeah, I used to have a laptop. I used to play solitaire."
  • Much like his time playing for the Phillies, there is not a glove in sight.
  • When asked about why he wanted to get a telescope, Burrell claims it is not for the senior citizen's water aerobics class held at his building.
  • Burrell puts his pants on just like us, one leg at a time. But after his pants are on, his refrigerator has nothing but Bud Light and water.

haha yeah I saw this a few weeks ago. My fav part is when she asks him about the beer in the fridge, and says, well obviously these arent yours and someone left them here. In responce he says yes and that he couldnt let them go to waste. And then after that moment, he has a beer in his hand the rest of the video.

Too bad this was stolen from another team related website. Pretty low and unfortunate for you that this is second-hand information you are trying to give as "hot off the press".

Another thing, what do you mean by "our"?? That is pretty narcissistic to say something like that? "Our"?? Elaborate on who "our" is?

5 days old and you "think" you are presenting first hand information?! I love America, isn't it a beautiful country? Whoever posted this is a douche because they obviously love their anonymity and wouldn't have a shred of integrity in their body.

Man, some pretty harsh criticism here. The guy pulled a Jayson what?

Wow. Is this a joke? Nobody supports other blogs with links more than I do both here and at MLB Trade Rumors.

In this case which do you think is more likely, that I saw this on another blog or I went to YouTube and searched for Pat Burrell like I do with all the Rays players from time to time. It is standard practice.

And where do I claim that I am the first person to "discover" this?

There is also a video of Pat Burrell saying the word poop. Has that been someplace already? Probably, but I am not going to search every blog to find out. I really don't care.

Finally. There are several people that work on this site. The "we" includes them.

Now, unless you have something intelligent to add, please go away.

jesus people. it is not like Prof took the video and said "hey look at this video i made".

you guys have a lot to learn about how blogs work.

i am sure this video has been on dozens of sites. who is to say that jonahkeri or the other team blog had it first. who the fuck cares. it's not their fucking video.

and all you have to do is check the webtopia here everymorning to see that Prof sends traffic to other blogs by the shit-loads.

don't sweat it Prof. just some jealous little shits.

and Willie P. do you have any clue what Jayson Blair really did? He plagiarized and he made shit up.

tell me exactly how Prof plagiarized and made shit up? were one of those jokes stolen from another site? doubt it. so learn something before you start mouthing off.

Jonah Keri? isn't that the guy the Rays are pissed at right now because he is writing a book about them without their consent? hahahahahhaha

Blogger The Professor said...

that is the same one. i do not read his blog on a regular basis, so I have no idea if he posted this video or not.

he is however the same one who writes a blog i have linked to in the past and who wrote a book that i bought.

so i think i have supported Mr. Keri plenty.

Let's I want to search the world over for Rays news or have the professor find it and collect it all here on one site? HMMMMMMM

To post #5...thankfully, since I have never heard of wtf website you saw this on, I can rely on Rays Index.

To post

To the professor...thanks! That video is great and I didn't have to search all the websites in creation for Rays news.

The Blogosphere typically tends to give credit to other sites when referencing work. It's called a hat tip or a linky, whatever you will.

Anonymous James said...

too funny.

but what is even funnier, is if you go to his blog today. there are a bunch of videos including Joey Gathright jumping over a car.

Keri doesn't say who put that video up first, but i guarantee you that video has been on hundreds of sites and I am pretty sure i saw it either here or another Rays blog at one point, long before Keri posted it.

and yet mr. anon is not over there ripping Keri apart. what a jackass.

to the last Anon, Prof gives hat tips ALL THE TIME. i am sure if he saw this someplace else first, he would have. he has done it in the past and i am sure he will do it in the future. GET OVER IT.

seriously, why are we even talking about this?

Can anyone tell me what year this is from? Looks way old.

Someone on Youtube says 2002-03, but that seems a bit too recent.

i'd bet anything that anonymous up there is one of those 12-year old writers or regular commenters over at DRB. i have read what they all say in the comments section over there. they are just salivating over there praying that Rays Index will screw something up so they can jump all over Prof.

Actually, Prof, this was originally posted by myself when I was at Bugs&Cranks and again when I started The Fightins. Since I originally uploaded it, it's been ripped from me and put on YouTube. I know it's from me because I cut if from it's original airing station, Comcast SportsNet.

I'm not trying to be a dickhead though, I don't mind you using it one bit. Just letting you know that if Jonah Keri, or whatever the fuck his/her name is posted it before, he/she stole it from me.
