06:57 AM ET 04.23 | Credit the fans in Anaheim for their long memories and hearty lungs. The boos reined down on A.J. Pierzynski at Angels Stadium. They seemingly always have and always will. On Monday, he gave the announced crowd of 36,192 fans -- actual attendance was much smaller -- plenty of reason to boo their lungs out. His two-out, ninth-inning homer gave the Rangers a 7-6 win over Los Angeles. ... Ostensibly fans in Anaheim boo Pierzynski for his part in several controversial calls during the 2005 AL Championship Series while he was with Chicago. ... [Said Pierzynski:] "Everybody always ask about it, but that was so long ago, I don't thinks anybody really remembers it. They all boo because others are booing. It's OK. I love the atmosphere here."

He loves every second of it.

Of course he is.

Does he have a choice? Booing at sporting events is an American prerogative.

Let's take the path of least resistance and just hijack this one.

I'm surprised there isn't a thread about Ron Washington being caught smoking in the dug out. That's a no-no.

I'm sorry, but I must correct you because you are using the incorrect term in this instance and that just not fly here on FN. ;P
