I'm not surprised. How many players from your local baseball team from a few years ago could your name or pick out of a lineup let alone someone from another baseball team?

I could probably name the Giants 2002 Roster, at least half of them, which included Jeff Kent and Berry Bonds. I just find it hard to believe that only one person recognized him, given he was a star baseball player in his career.

Maybe everyone there just aren't die-hard enough baseball fans to know a player on the spot or at the sound of their name?

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

I really liked this episode, I started watching Survivor in the second season so it's good to see Michael back.

Zane should have told someone his plan and not that Russell had the idol, but that he saw Russell doing something. If he had done that, then maybe his plan could have worked.

I think that Lisa/ Blair and Jeff will be gone ASAP. Jeff will be gone due to his knee likely and Lisa is not playing the social game, so she will be gone.

I remember Russell from last season, he was an ass then and an ass now. Last season though they tolerated him a lot more than this group seems to be doing.

It will be interesting seeing three tribes, I guess there will be a merge sooner and possibly be split into two tribes, then a second merge.

Or maybe there's not a lot of overlap between SURVIVOR fans and baseball fans?

I don't know, I mean I can't think of that many people I know who are huge baseball fans or know the names of any players. I would say I am a very casual baseball fan, watching games on TV every now and then and going to a game about once every two years (usually the A's), but I could count the number of players names I know on one hand, including any past and present players. They don't include Jeff Kent, I have no idea who he played for.

I do know Blair though! I watch the Facts of Life on DVD every now and then. It doesn't look like Lisa will be sticking around for long though.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

Enjoyed the 90 minute premiere. Had to laugh at Russell saying he'd let the dummies stand up and be the leader with a target on their back, then turns around and does the leader thing himself. The Zane Strategy was nuts, which surprised me since pre-game buzz seemed to indicate he might be around for a while. Apparently not.

Still not sure it's fair to have Penner there as one of the returnees. Sure he had to be removed for medical reasons in that one season, but he also played Cook Islands long enough to be voted out 14th. Surely they could have chosen another first-timer that had to be evac'd. At least the other two got pulled in their first attempts. And it's great to finally get Skupin back on the show. Now if only they could convince Colleen from Season 1 to return...

I think Mike Skupin might be the second coming of Jesus. It's like watching The Passion every time he's onscreen getting brutally torn to shreds for our sins.

Abi-Maria is a friggin' nutjob. Poor RC must have immediately regretted entering an alliance with that kook.

Angie and Russell sucked ass. At least Russell realized that he blew it.

Angie getting voted off was clearly the wrong choice. I mean... from an eye-candy perspective. From a strategy standpoint it doesn't matter because they'll still be terrible regardless.

It's funny how things changed this week, last week it looked like Lisa was TC fodder and now she's in a pretty strong position with Pete, Abi and the HII. Of course Pete and Abi would turn on her in a second so it's smart for her to be Pete's voting lapdog effectively giving him two votes, he will want to keep her around as long as possible, she has a good chance to make it to the merge but after that she should really try to build an alliance with someone else, Abi can't be trusted, she's too paranoid, that the original alliance of four imploded seems to be only her fault.

Which is why it's kind of foolish to make alliances on day one. I understand the desire to form an alliance quickly, but it can backfire when you don't know what kind of nutjob you're throwing in with.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

Angie was retaaaaaarded. I cringed every time her confused furrowed brow appeared on the television. She didn't even deserve to be there in the first place. Enjoy those back problems.

Russell, you ain't much better dude.

I hope that alliance of Malcom and the older woman who's an amazing diver stick, but it'll be tough once the merge happens.

The Brazilian would be fun to have sex with but the crazy that resides deep within her is pretty discomforting. You'd have to run like hell once you were done. Truth be told, I actually love loose cannons like that on Survivor so I'm enjoying her shenanigans. RC, you fucked up huge.

That Peter guy actually seems like he might have his shit together. Facts of life is nothing more than a floating pawn.

Too bad Jonathon is suspected of having the idol, I get a feeling he might be blindsided unless him and mediocre baseball player Jeff Kent put something together.

Just got around to watching the episode on TiFaux.

Are these people stupid?! Are they not seeing that Russ is their bigger problem than the people they've voted off the last 3 weeks?

I'm waiting for Stephanie to walk out of the woods and start screaming at them. We saw this same thing happen with her tribe.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

That challenge was so well shot, loved the end when they were missing the final jar full of rice and then finally the red team's swings back and breaks the jar.

Blue team just cannot catch a break, but really Russell lost that challenge for them crawling like an idiot to the platform after falling so far behind before Malcolm could go and swing rope at the jars. So glad he's gone, and I'm honestly surprised he's not more used to failure.

Crazy brazilian is still crazy. Loved how the guy (Peter?) planted the clue next to RC, seems like he's really got his shit together. If RC is smart she plays up how crazy the brazilian is to get back in to people's good graces.

Looked like from the previews that the final two from the blue tribe somehow have the clue for the idol, hope one of them finds it. I wonder when the merge will be? We're at 14 players I think, usually it merges around 10-11 I think?

It was nice to have a challenge that didn't involve a puzzle for once.
