With Quinnah, You're a Winnah!

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
I had the pleasure last night of hanging in Professor Thom's with Nick Stevens, who is best known for his alter ego Paul "Fitzy" Fitzgerald, and his terrific web site, "Townie News."
Nick is also currently working for MLB Network, and he's doing some short vignettes that will air during the Friday night games on the network. I've known Nick for some time, as we go back to Professor Thom's days of doing "Kayreoke" together. (That is when fans were allowed to call the action on games involving the Red Sox in the bar on a mic. Nick and I did it one night together and he was simply hysterical.)
He asked me if I'd like to be part of a one minute video he was putting together for the Red Sox-Yankees game on Friday night. Me being the media whore I am, quickly agreed. So last night, Nick and his crew came in and we sat at the bar, and he asked me a few questions about my Red Sox fandom, being a Brooklyn-born fan. (I always answer that question with: "I was raised by Yankee haters...")
It was a fun few minutes, and Nick also chatted with a few other Red Sox fans in the bar. He had his camera crew film my opening of Trivia Night when we got started, and we also shot a scene that maybe the conclusion of the video, with Nick picking up a brewski at a table with me sitting next to him, uttering the phrase: "With Quinnah, you're a winnah!" And then he and I high-fived.
But there is an irony to filming the video last night. It is that I will not see it, as the MLB Network broadcast of the game will be blacked out in New York and New England, because it will be shown on both the Red Sox and Yankee cable stations.
Well, you can't win them all I guess, even if you are a media whore.
Here is Nick/Fitzy at his best, back in 2008. Enjoy:
