That’s the bumper sticker I want on my car. If I had a car. Dream car, by the way, is a BMW, like the one in The Ghost Writer. Beautiful car and the GPS system can take you to the last place the predecessor at your job, who was murdered, visited. It might even lead you to the same fate. One more reason to want that car.
Anyway, my point is: I © Tim Flannery. He won my heart forever when he told the story about him and Bochy on Inside the Clubhouse, Spring 2010. “I’m 1-0, buddy. Where’s the press conference?” Great story.
So my fondness for Flann has led me to notice that when the base coaches are announced (for the Giants, Roberto Kelly and Tim Flannery), no one cheers. Except me, of course. If you’re at the park sometime and hear someone cheering when the names are announced, look for me. Or one of my family members or friends, smirking and clapping, in honor of my absence.
I know some people have a problem with Flannery’s coaching, but as Mychael Urban said, “he’s too entertaining to move.” So for unbelievers, I suggest turning him into a cheerleader. As you probably know, I am pioneering an idea for traditional, female cheerleaders in baseball, but MLB may not be ready for women in sparkly outfits to be on the field, so former coaches might be a good alternative. Tim gets really into it and I think he’d be a fantastic cheerleader.
However you feel about it, please cheer next time the base coaches are announced. In honor of me. Thank you.
And about the new Giants new ad campaign, “It’s September Inside”? You don’t say. Last I checked it was September outside, too.
p.s. Just to finish up on the fashion topic, CJ Wilson said, “I normally wear black [...] I just feel like if you’re going to look bad, you don’t stick it out in black.” We have found our MLB player with the best fashion sense. Best hair, best fashion sense. I think he’s going to win it all, along with his team.
