In other news, I am embarrassed to admit that I am rather partial to the fish tank at the Miami Marlins new stadium. Although knowing my fish, who is the most antisocial creature I have ever come across in my life, I can’t imagine the fishies are all that good company at the ballgame.
Also worth noting: yesterday’s starter for the Brewers, Marco Estrada, has been placed on the Disabled List today, following an injury against the Giants in the first inning when he hurt his leg, running out a 2-run double. I don’t have any stats to back this up but he must be, oh, the five millionth player to head to the DL after facing the Giants. A lot of people have discussed the Giants being cursed this year — something about handing over their souls to win the 2010 World Series — but if we’re really talking curses? Talk to the myriad of guys San Francisco has injured, in some way or other. I am sure they would be happy to spill, through their full body casts or whatever.
Said with no glee whatsoever. Injures are terrible, whether or not it’s the opposing team or even a player I detest. But it is a trend worth raising an eyebrow and poking one’s voodoo dolls about, perhaps.
Vogelstrong or, as I like to call him, Baby Lemur, is on the mound tonight. I think I have a good feeling about this. (To be removed from post promptly after game if the Giants lose. Feel free to screen-grab for posterity in the meantime.)
If you get past the fact that there is no resemblance, isn’t there totally a resemblance?
