THIS JUST IN: Boston is guarranteed goin’ to the play-offs

Grey Kitteh: "…but I don’t have to like it." [Goes back to sleepies]


OK, we made a sports joke with a 90 percent female demographic. ARE YOU HAPPY NOW, Cate F.!?



  1. […] Well n e way I lurve the Sox. Sooo happy.

  2. I’m going to post this in my guy friends’ football forum JUST to confuse and offend them. >:3

  3. fightinfilipino says:

    i am happy since the RED SOX ARE AWESOME!

  4. Von Zeppelin says:

    Hah! In your FACE, Yankees cat!

  5. 90% female?

    are all the guys ashamed to admit they come here too?

  6. Boston Baked Beans?!


  7. Girls like sports too! As a female Angeleno, I fully expect a Dodger kitty tomorrow when they clinch their playoff berth. 😉

  8. I love sox too, as long as they don’t fall down and bunch up. I’m wearing some comfy chenille slipper-sox thingies right now that my mother-out-law gave me for christmas, mmmm, fuzzy! ;D

  9. I aint no Laydee, but I am English and this don’t compute with me.

  10. GO SOX!

  11. *twirls blond curl around finger*

    Um, “Sox”? Like, I don’t get it- are they a like football team, or something?

  12. So who says you need (hair)balls to enjoy sports?

  13. This kitty is clearly a Jays fan…

    You get it? ‘Cause it’s a bird! Ha!

  14. Yay, Bosox! Yay, grey kitteh! With love from a fan of Boston Red Sox and grey kittehs (Mr. Picky is all gray but no stripeys).
    Yay, Meg, too.

  15. Hon Glad and Balamuthia — it’s baseball, actually.

  16. LMAO @ Theo

    Yeah, I know- I was being silly and sarcastic.

  17. That’s the same face I’ll have to put on for the next month or so. Sure, their 1st World Series win was exciting, and the 2nd was kind of fun, but now I’d rather play with my kitties.

  18. 10%! Woo! Take that someone!

  19. soxfandeuce says:

    Go Sox!! This pic truly made me laugh out loud.

  20. Dood. The Rays are totally taking AL East.

    Plus, rays are cuter and look like they’re smiling.

  21. Cubs doggie on the way!

  22. YAY SOX and YAY KITTEH!!!

  23. (the original) Mel says:


    *love hands*


  24. This cat has obviously been Raised Right. One of the first things I did when I got my new kittens was to teach them “Red Sox good, Yankees bad.”

  25. Hey, maybe this cat can be friends with my cat! She’s a Sox fan too. Here’s a pic of my girl during last year’s World Series.

  26. snoopysnake says:

    Grey kittehs for the Red Sox! Yay Red Sox! 2 in a row! And a Yankhissless playoffs – saweeeeet!

    Kitteh is just worried about the health of JD Drew, Mikey Lowell, Josh Beckett, and everyone else. She’s also still a little sad about the Patriots.

  27. hey, some of us 90%ers are baseball fans!!!

    At the Paws house, all seven paws are PAWS UP for the Mets (when we aren’t praying for their very lives)

  28. Thanks Theo, I beleive Baseball is nearly as boring as our Cricket.

    [Yeah well. Wutyagonnado. – Ed.]

  29. As my Mets are circling the drain (again), I am trying to cultivate a “Yeh, whaddever” attitude. [Stephen Colbert style fist-shaking] NOOOOOOOOOO!!!

  30. Go Sox, and go 9 girls for each guy! <3

  31. ThreeCatNight says:

    “They’re closing Yankee Stadium, they’re closing Shea, and now THIS! Too depressing! Why don’t you just replace my cat litter with cotton balls! Sheesh!”

  32. Lifetime Yankee fan here (sniff). But heck, the Yankees lost fair and square by being terrible, so let me say loud and clear:

    Go Sox!
    Go Mets!

    I’m behind ya, now that my boys are out of it.

  33. Dexter Fishmore says:

    I demand Dodger Cat!

    GO BLUE!!!

  34. WickedWendy says:

    Go….A’s? Oh well….there’s always next year!

  35. scooterpants says:

    red is NOT that kittehs color, he needs to pick a team who’s colors are pink, or maybe a nice minty green?

  36. The Braves did not have a great year, so for the longshot world series match up I a.m. going to say: Cubs and Rays

    It could happen…

  37. Pffft. Go Rays!

  38. Jane – Gotta teach those pets right from wrong! I still can’t manage to teach her to bark at the Yankees on TV or passers-by in pinstriped jerseys… I even named her Tessie! Maybe cats are just smahter with their team loyalties?

  39. Oh, it may *appear* to be a 90% female demographic, until you factor in all of the boyfriends and husbands peering over their shoulders going “squee!” I know, my husband’s a CO addict and never even logs on with his own browser.

  40. What is “play-offs”???

  41. I don’t get it…

  42. wagthedogma says:

    “He-ah we go Red Sawwx, he-ah we go!!” /Boston girl

  43. Wuh, chicks can’t like sports? I’m female AND I was at the playoff-clenching game on Tuesday!

    (My Yankees-loving husband took me, and – GASP – had a good time!)

  44. Julie_from_SoCal says:

    As an Angels fan, I must say that our rally monkey will bite you in the butt!

  45. “Clinching”, Scamps.
    Your way makes it sound like a real white-knuckle game, though.

  46. @Scamps, “*clenching*” game? I would have loved to see that!!
    Here we go Red Sawx, here we go! (clench clench)

  47. @Julie, I am SO jealous of the rally monkeh!! ANd the Philly Phanatic.

  48. jinx, Theresa

  49. Theo, les grands esprits se rencontrent. 😉

  50. Wouah! Mon aéroglisseur est plein des anguilles, aussi!

  51. @ Little Red:

    I’ve determined if I ever have a baby, it’s going to be named Tessie. This means I either need to never have kids or make sure to have a daughter.

    @ AmyJ:

    You can’t be a real Yankees fan. Even though they’re out of it, the words “Go Sox” would never leave your mouth! 😉

  52. Theo, I can’t ask you to go to my place bouncy-bouncy. 😛

  53. *whew*

    No offense.

  54. One of the 10%!!!!! If this were a deserted island I would SO be getting laid within the next few years.

    BTW, feel free to direct any and all baseball-related questions to me. I know more about baseball than I know about movies.

    What REALLY REALLY shocks me is that there is NO Chicago Cubs love! There are TONS of Cubs fans and I imagine a few of them are female!

    Also, in an unrelated event, I am having to break off my crush on Mel. Sorry, Mel. My loyalty to the Yankees has its limits. (Though I don’t hate the Red Sox, I’m sure you would hate me for preferring the Yankees).

    Playoff predictions!
    Phllies beat Brewers (sorry Mets fans, you lose out)
    Dodgers beat Cubs
    Phillies beat Dodgers
    Angels beat Red Sox
    Rays beat Twins
    Angels beat Rays

    World Series: Angels beat Phillies

    Ask me tomorrow and you’ll get a different answer.

  55. As long as whoever they play beats the living cr@p out of the Dodgers, I’ve lost interest in 2008 baseball. Hmph. (Curse you, Dan O’Dowd!)

    I’m looking forward to hockey.

    And not that anyone cares, but I was there when the Avalanche won their last Stanley Cup in 2001. (And when the Rockies got their hineys spanked for the next-to-the-last time in 2007.)

  56. @Auntie Mame, I knew there was fighting in hockey, but hiney-spanking? Some of us are gonna have to check this out!

  57. @Berthaservant, HISS!!!
    (I’m afraid you may be partly right though, although there’s NO WAY the Phils are going to the Series)

  58. PS Manny is loving the Red Sox new blue uniforms!

  59. Josh Beckett says:

    Obviously kitteh’s fave player is Josh Beckcat HAW HAW HAW

  60. Hey, I’m a die-hard Met fan and part of that 90%!

  61. Monorail cat despairs that the Mariners will spend the next decade ending last.

  62. @Teho: Anguilles? Veritablement? Aiguilles, peut-etre? Je ne comprends pas.

  63. @mberkie0, aimez-vous Monty Python?

  64. snoopysnake says:

    Les anguilles sont en mon hovercraft, mberkie0.

    Josh Beckcat, love it!

    Hmm…cats also like
    Manxy Ramirez of the 😦 Dodgies
    Dustin Purrdroia
    Dice-K Manxusata
    Alex Calicora
    JD Dmew
    Jacoby Ellspurry
    Jonathan Catpelbon
    Kevin Youkittis
    but no Yankhiss!

  65. snoopysnake says:

    oops,, dans mon hovercraft.

  66. Theresa, I actually meant last year’s baseball Rockies. Who got swept out of the World Series last year by the abovementioned Red Sox (boo hiss!).

  67. Gail (the first one) says:

    Sorry, but whoever is making the “90% female equals non-sports fans” equation is wrong!

    My love of sports started with my mom watching her beloved Cubs…then, despite her best efforts, I went with my dad and switched loyalties to the “right” (White) Sox. If you grow up in Chicagoland, who you root for is a bigger deal than religion or politics.

    For myself, as a product of this mixed marriage, I have come to be a regional fan. Glad if the Cubs/Sox/Brewers make it! But my favorite is Hockey—the Blackhawks do seem to be on the upswing!

    Having said that, if the Cubs win the World Series, it may be a sign of the end of the world!!

  68. Gail (the first one) says:

    P.S. Hon Glad: Just substitute football (soccer) and cute kitteh wearing Manchester United cap (sorry, only team I can think of!)

  69. PS A Gallery of non-human Mets fans:
    Including the adorable Nibbler the Rally Bird!

  70. @ berthas:

    Are you ready to make today’s predictions yet? Y’know, with Boston on top?

  71. momof2kitties says:

    OOH, OOH, is it hockey smack talk season already?? \o/

    Well then, Gail (1) and AuntieMame, your pathetic, weeny Av’s and BlackHawks are goin’ down! Red WIngs for the Stanley Cup repeat! Go Wings!

    ::dodges return volley of puddingks::

  72. Theresa- that is just wonderful! I especially love the big picture of the goggie! Just wonderful, thanks for that. I have a sad Yankees Fan over here and well, it isn’t Muddville, but it isn’t pretty.

    Best wishes on your sportslife! I don bring up the bad demographis side, don’t I”

    (Shhh, I do somethings well, we have 35 musicians now!) How’s the choir doing?

    OH, momof2kitties, can you teach me how to talk like that so I can speak “Palin”?
    Purely a defensive act, I’m lost when it comes to sports, I’m sorry, but that is the harsh truth.

  73. snoopysnake says:

    Red Sox kitties also miss Nomewr Garciapurra. The Dodgers are where Theo’s scapegoats wind up. snoopysnake does not like Theo Epstein. Hiss! Hiss!
    If the Red Sox don’t get in the World Series this year snoopysnake is rooting for the Cubs, and then the Dodgers! No Diamondbacks thissss time, either 😦

  74. snoopysnake says:

    p.s. rumor has it that this is really a white kitty who went swimming in the Dirty Water! Maybe her name is Sweet Caroline Tessie.

  75. Mais, but oui, j’aime, excusez-moi, I lof ze Montie Pythons! I deed not comprend. Eet haz been so longue since I haf seen dem, ze Montie Pythons, and you know ze memorie, she fades. Desolee d’avoir fait un terrible meestake. Pardonnez, tous.

  76. momof2kitties says:

    Oh, sorry Katrina, I am only a Red WIngs fan. Well, and U-M too, but that’s beside the point. I don’t think I am such a big Palin fan. Just ‘cuz she’s into hockey and I am too doesn’t make us likethis.

    Pretty much all you have to do is throw out terms like “hat trick” (three goals in one game by a single player, very hard to achieve) and “five-hole” (the area between a goalie’s knees) and people will think you know what you’re talking about. Some random hooting and hollering helps, too.

    Thus endeth the lesson. 🙂

  77. @momof2kitties, the joke about the Atlanta Flames (late NHL franchise) fans was “they would applaud icing.”

    When I heard that Palin was going to be on a Presidential ticket, it had to be a letdown, since it wasn’t Michael.

  78. @Theo, Theresa: Yeah, I was too lazy to fix it.

    But really, backlash for a simple spelling error? Yet none for the slight sexist overtones of this post?

    For the first time in my life, CO has annoyed me a wee bit. Let’s hope it’s the last.

  79. What’s sports?

    …and who’s this other Theo dude who plays them?

  80. @Scamps, the only *really* incorrect thing in your posting was the part about “Yankee-loving.” Ew. 😉

    Otherwise, the idea of 40,000 pairs of buttocks clenching in their seats was just too funny (for me) to pass up.

  81. Gail (the first one) says:

    @Momof2: I root for the Red Wings, too. You’ve got my favorite, Chris Chelios (who is also the best looking guy in hockey–IMHO). He is a HUGE Cubs fan. On his day with the Stanley Cup, he brought it to Wrigley Field, where he threw out the first pitch and sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”.

  82. snoopysnake says:

    Theo Epstein is a stupid little boy who was made executive VP of the Red Sox. He is jealous of all popular Red Sox players (e.g. Nomar Garciaparra, Johnny Damon, Pedro Martinez, Manny Ramirez, Bronson Arroyo, and unfortunately probably more of my current favorites) and does everything in his evil power to run them out of town.

  83. momof2kitties says:

    Chelly is THE MAN. Anybody who can still play NHL level hockey at 42 years old (or whatever is he is exactly) is a serious dude, and should be respected.

    As for our house, we have one Draper lover (that’s me!) and one Yzerman lover (my daughter). Yeah, I know he’s retired and a team president in the front office now, but no matter. She loves him anyway. Her room is a shrine to Red Wings adoration, just this side of creepy. Some girls follow the Jonas Brothers. My daughter? Red Wings trivia nut. God love her.

  84. momof2kitties-it is very fun commenting with you. I learn so much reading CO, and the other thing? Yeah, it is lousy to be stereotyped, and lousy to stereotype- what was I thinking? It was not intentional, please accept my apologies. Happy Hockey season!

  85. momof2kitties says:

    Oh No! No offense taken! It’s all good. Always happy to joust with a fellow CO’er.

    Here. Have a pasickie. Wif sum puddin’, too.

    And…Go Wings!!

  86. @Snoopysnake, look at it this way, you don’t have to watch Pedro’s clock running down. I am crazy about Pedro, but this is like watching a lion getting taken down by hyenas.

  87. momof2kittes-uuuuummmmmmm,thanks!
