• Torre Not Very PC

    Posted by on February 18th, 2006 · Comments (2)

    From the Journal News -

    Torre has a laptop computer in his office and hopes to learn how to use it. It’s not an order from Steinbrenner, either. Torre’s 9-year-old daughter, Andrea, thinks he should become more computer literate. Can a MySpace.com page be far behind?

    What? Torre’s not reading WasWatching.com?

    Well, he ain’t got no distractions,
    Can’t hear no buzzers and bells.
    Don’t see lights a-flashing,
    He goes by sense of smell.
    Doesn’t have any PC skills,
    Never reads WasWatching at all,
    That deaf, dumb and blind Torre
    Still better win a ring this fall.

      Torre continues to come off like the clueless, doddering old uncle who screams about not being able to figure out how the TV works.

      Which may, of course, be due to the fact that he is often protrayed by the media as a “clueless, doddering old uncle who screams about not being able to figure out how the TV works” – rather than actually being one. That fits the pre-approved storyline, after all.

      Just because that’s how the media paints it doesn’t make the portrait accurate (eg, Kirby Puckett pre-1999, anyone?).
