Those of you not from Chicago likely don't get the reference, so here's a peak into the big, bad, grand, awesome, nifty, omnipresent world of Bob Rohrman:
The title of Joe's email was "No comment needed …"
Except: The organist, with that little dramatic organ sting about two seconds after the ball makes contact, is the funniest thing I have heard in my lifetime. I could watch and listen to that consecutively for the next week and never tire of it.
So, how are you doing this season? Everything working out the way you had hoped?
As has become our want, here's a nice video for you to enjoy until we get back.
This is what went through my mind the first time I saw the GIF below: "Oooooo, beautiful. That's spectacular. What a wondef— HOLD STILL YOU MFING DIPWADDED ALPHAHOLE! I HOPE THE PLANE GOES DOWN AND YOUR BODY SLOWLY BOILS IN THE TRANSPARENT BLUE FLAME OF BURNING JET FUEL WHILE YOU MAINTAIN CONSCIOUSNESS WONDERING WHY YOU COULDN'T JUST STAY STILL WHILE YOU RECORDED THAT NIFTY NATURAL WONDER!!!
But then, last night happens, in what we imagine is the after-effect of many shots of some choice libations. This rant happens:
While we will not disclose who shared this rant with us — we'll just say he wears jorts to dance around his moped every Mother's Day — we will say it is fun to see one of our owners rip this fantasy league apart while indiscriminately throwing other owners (well, just one other owner, to be fair) under the bus. Thanks, dancing jorts momma's boy, we needed that.

As Joe says, rules are rules.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, every other minor league baseball team, why can't you all have this rule? I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!
Sometimes, I seriously love the Internet:
Maddog Mauler's owner Michael Schoien sent us this link with the note that there's no commentary needed. Sorry, Maddog, but there's a ton of commentary needed, starting with how it is that no one reached out to us to include the last remaining Bobblehead-of-Lettuce! The single most notorious bobblehead in world history of bobbleheads doesn't get included in the Bobblehead Museum! That is an outrage!
