Things that make me giddily excited: a. the Winter Meetings. b. Brownies. c. Big, unexpected trades. Y’all know what I’m talking about. Even Ryan Braun seemed giddily excited. Although I have a semi-irrational suspicion that his management had a knife to his back while he spoke to the press. Because Ryan being that gushy about them is just odd.
Anyway, I hope it goes well for Greinke in Milwaukee. I don’t know the team and division well enough to have an informed opinion (Brewers diehards, come to my rescue!) on whether they could really contend next year, but I obviously hope they do. I was sad to see that Jeremy Jeffress was a part of the trade, because he was the sweet guy who threw me a ball at the Brewers game last year. But I wish him all the best in KC.
And to congratulate Greinke on his trade, he gets some sunglasses. Round/heart-shaped face = square sunglasses. These are by- who else?- Prada.
Which reminded me that at Werth’s Nationals press conference on Wednesday, he debuted a decidedly better look.
Before and After
So, true to my word, I’ve fitted him up with some designer sunglasses.
This pair wouldn’t fit on this picture, but here they are, by Giorgio Armani:
They’re not too big, which would overwhelm his face, but they have soft angles to contrast his angular face. And they’re only $275. Total steal for designer sunglasses. And total steals on designer sunglasses is another thing that makes me giddily excited.
