LaRussa No Einstein

Jason Isringhausen, aka the human blowtorch, blows yet another 2 run lead last night. That's twice in the last 4 games.
Okay, I'm not Einstein either. But LaRussa keeps contradicting the troll-coifed-one so mightily, he is a one man tribute to Albert's definition of insanity:
"Insanity- doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
Let's use it in a sentence, shall we?
"LaRussa demonstrates insanity by continually bringing Jason Isringhausen in to the 9th inning of games the Cardinals are leading."
LaRussa reminds me of Mr. Krabs. In the SpongeBob Episode "Clams." In it, the money-loving tight-wad Krabs earns his millionth dollar, takes Squidward and SpongeBob on a fishing trip, and promptly loses his millionth dollar in the sea. Which causes him to go mad in the process of trying to recover it.
"I'm wasting more and more of me money at Busch Stadium."- Mr. Krabs 2006.
As Mr. Krabs is seen pulling his elongated eyes out of their sockets and skipping them like jump rope (a visual that just must be seen to be believed- too funny), Squidward utters the immortal line:
"Have you noticed that Mr. Krabs...has gone COMPLETELY INSANE?!"
Well, I have the same question. Just substitute the word Krabs with LaRussa. And then you can call me "Squidward" Maximus.
And for those of you who never thought it possible to tie in Jason Isringhausen to Albert Einstein to Tony LaRussa to SpongeBob Square Pants, I'll leave you with this thought...in this world, everything is intertwined. You just have to find the common thread.
