Amiço and Chiwawa Boy

Hey Amiço! Did you hear the news??

No. What?

There will be no strike in baseball!

Wouldn't that make the game pretty boring?

No no! I mean, the labor kind of strike. There won't be a baseball strike!

Oh. So?



How can you say that??

Chiwawa Boy, who cares? When was the last time baseball was any good? After Maguire broke the home run record, did anyone keep watching it?

Sure they did! I've been trying to follow the Yankees.

They're still around? I thought they had to close down after Steinenberrenner found the heroin stashed in his conference room chairs.


C.B., do you know how much money baseball makes every year? $3.5 billion!

Wow. That's a lot.

I know! Do you have that much money?

Hang on. Let me check.


No. I have two dollars....and a Casio.

Well, I don't have that much money, either. Baseball is doing just fine without my help, so I don't need to hear about the woes of some guy who makes over two million a year to play a game.

Hey...you got that from that HBO movie!

Si. Anthony Michael Hall kicks ass!


Oh, you know....remember that guy that stole your ATM card?

Si. I almost lost my Casio.

I was, though, kinda disappointed to see Bruce McGill look like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.

So Amiço, what kinds of sports do you like?

I'm more of a golfer.

What?? You?

Si, why?

But...you're not an Anglo yuppie in his 60's.

I know, but it just really relaxes me....


Si. Chasing gophers down holes and zinging wisecracks with Chevy Chase.

So, you only like golf? What about basketball?

Too pointless.


Too bloody.


Too many criminals.


No, C.B. I like women.


You try to tell any housewife that she's doing a "sport."

Okay, I give up. You hate everything except golf.

That's not true. I like Slingo.

Huh? Oh si, me too!

You have no idea how to play it, right?


That's okay. Nobody does.

You mean that whole Tournament of Champions thing was a sham?

Si. A spectacular sham. All of those players were paid off.

I wonder when they will go on strike?
