Reference to the silly and often lackadaisical behavior of Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez. Although Manny is one of the top players on the team, this phrase is generally not used to describe his good play.
Fan 1: Did you see Manny space out and drop that fly ball last night?
Fan 2: Yep. ::sigh:: Manny being Manny.
Very often, a pro-lifer is a bible beater without a grasp on anything except their futile task of trying scientifically prove a book without risking disproving it. These people can sometimes be seen parading around with the pictures of those who bomb abortion clinics and shoot abortion doctors. It's a good thing they're not Islamic terrorists parading pictures of THEIR "martyrs" around, right? Riiiiiiight.
Some broad:"My mom used to take me to rallies when I was little and we'd block abortion clinics."
Me:"Because my mom probably hit your mom."
A girl that makes you feel AMAZING while you have her, but she always leaves you wanting more and in the end, she disappears.
Snowblind: I think I'm falling for Betty, man.
Straight: Don't, dude. She's a Cocaine Cowgirl. Just enjoy it while it lasts and try not to miss it when it's gone.
The embodiment of the squandered hopes of generations of Red Sox fans. Tony C., born in Revere MA, was the a star player of the Sox' "Impossible Dream" team in 1967 and was hit in the eye with a pitch, taking him out for a year and a half. He made a good comeback the year of his return but because of the injury he was never the same. Later he had a heart attack from which he never recovered fully and died while in a coma in 1990. The Red Sox have since instituted the Tony Conigliaro award for players who have overcome adversity, and Major League Baseball started making helmets with the now standard protective earflap.
Tony Conigliaro broke the American League record as the youngest player to reach 100 home runs.
In America, the word townie is generally used to refer to people who are deeply rooted in their home town and have little or no prospects of leaving it even to go on vacation (except perhaps Aruba or the Bahamas). Generally, they don't go to college except perhaps to community college where they take one or two classes a semester. They or their families probably own a small business, perhaps paving or landscaping. Many of them frequent cheap, dirty bars that have nothing but Bud Light on tap. Some may be heard drunkenly babbling about how Arabs are taking the country by means of their ownership of countless gas stations and convenience stores. The word townie is also sometimes used by hipster douchebags to take shots at people over their accent and how they choose to spend their time.
Sacramentan: So what do you do for fun in Massachusetts?
Me: Red Sox, poker; I'm a bit of a music-
Sacramentan: "Red Sahx"? "Pokah"? What are you, a fucking townie?
Me: Actually, I have a real job, I go to college full-time, my dad doesn't have a landscaping company, and I don't plan to live on the Irish Riviera forever. -You shouldn't be so quick to judge people. I didn't call you a pretentious hipster douchebag just because you wear thick-rimmed glasses and listen to indie music on your iPod while you ride your fixie to the coffee shop.- (- -: I wish I had actually said that part)
Abington, MA is a town no more than twenty miles south of Boston
. Here lieth the working class who have all become landscapers and car salesmen because their manufacturing jobs have been "displaced". A place where you only go if you want some sort of intoxicant or violence. Often the home of stoners and paper gangsters that talk about all those gangbangers in Brockton
that they know that have guns. The stoners are pretty cool, but the suburban thugs are pretty lame. This makes for a VERY mediocre town.
1.A Stoner - Hey, let's go to Two-Twelve in Abington and see Guido. We can smoke joints
and see his pit bull.
2.A Suburban Thug - ABINGTON, WHAT?!?!?! YOU GOT A PROBLEM?!?! THUG LIFE BABY! THIS IS HOW WE DO IN WORKING CLASS SUBURBIA, DAWG!!!
A male who enjoys dancing on podiums whilst drinking raspberry and vodkas. Often seen in random night clubs in the vicinity of westfield southland. A dodgey character at the best of times.
Look at Jubba, slaughtered again and dancing to 'dirty'.
