I clicked Like on this abhorrent cartoon on behalf of LaBombo, not myself.

It's dark and edgy, and yet it has a beat you can dance to.

 

I am LaBombo, and I approved this Like.

None that I'm aware of. The dogs would probably chomp on them, confusing them with turkey legs.


I need to teach my dogs that.

We lost to a team with players name Melvin Upton Jr. And Bo Schultz? And we countered with Kepler and Kuentzler (sp)? If we had played Grossman, our Germans might have prevailed!

I don't see how Molitor can stay after this season.

if they're going to leave Pressly as a reliever, they gotta shorten that delivery....

 

That's one way to go. But if he keeps pitching like he did today, they could expand his delivery instead.

Our Germans are better than their Germans.

Bremer evened things out a bit by saying 'Bo Schultz' like it was one word, so that it sounded a little like 'Bon Chance'.

The Twins didn't even lose 80 last season. It's still August (33 more to play!). 100 L seems like a slam-dunk now.

So, I was thinking about blue jays (the bird). It's a good-looking bird but it has an obnoxious call and it's an obnoxious bird. Pushes other birds around like it owns nature and a messy eater. Does that carry over to the team that is its namesake and the fans thereof? An opinion on this matter from any qualified observer (for example a resident of a large city in southern Manitoba) would be interesting to read.

I've been to a number of games in Tronno, and the guy next to me always seems to spill his beer and ends up wearing his popcorn. So they got the messy part down.

The sports media there revels in shoving every Tronno sports team down the rest of the country's collective throats, resulting in TSN being colloquially called the Toronto Sports Network. So yeah, they think they run the joint.

The only obnoxious fans are the bandwagon ones who emerge around September with the Jays in contention. They never miss an opportunity you tell you all about how much they love the team and what a great player Edward Encarnacion is :).

Nice stat.

 

Over the past 10 years the Blue Jays and Yankees are top two in winning percentage against a single opponent, both the Twins.

I can't like your post, as it is true and THAT FACT makes me MAD!!!

Good post and I hope Twins see it!

The way Twins are playing is ruining my "there's always next year"  :banghead:
