So you all remember that time I carried that sign to the Giants-Brewers game, yes? Yes. It is the gift that keeps on giving. Updated:
Bear with my awkward photoshopping. I didn’t have any coffee until 6 this evening and it was sort of cold and watery. I’m not in any state to edit photos.
Also, welcome back, Ramon Ramirez! While the Giants have figured out how to make off with absolutely everyone from the Angel Pagan-Andres Torres-Ramon Ramirez trade, the Mets are, uh, getting a casino. (Incidentally, where does one get a casino? Can I get one? Like, for my living room?) At least they live in New Yor—haha, but it’s Queens. So it doesn’t count. Sorry, guys. Rough times.
Buster Posey is not exactly an avid tweeter. In fact, I’m not really sure he gets the concept. (He signs his tweets, for god’s sake. A love note in kindergarten is sort of what it brings to mind.) He doesn’t treat us to photos of his meals or his pets or his brand-name moisturizers, like the enviably mustached John Axford. And I’m not just complimenting him because his taste in exfoliant aligns with mine. Okay, that’s part of it… but he’s a pretty good tweeter, too.
Anyway, the point of all of this is that Buster gave us a gem on Twitter yesterday. Observe:
@BusterPosey: Offseason in Georgia has officially come to an end. Heading out west with the family for spring training! –Buster
See? See?! Isn’t that a gem? Just by nature of the fact that it says a) Offseason has come an end and b) I’m heading out west and c) the greatest two words known to mankind other than “there’s pizza” and “new shoes”. That is, spring training.
There’s still a bit of time until real Spring Training starts off, but in the meantime there’s the Super Bowl to be excited abou—haha, no. I mean, for all of you who enjoy the Super Bowl, by all means, enjoy it. But I’m excited for a Hyundai commercial with The Flaming Lips and that’s pretty much (entirely) it.
The Flaming Lips. Buster Posey. All that is good and well in this world.
