In this Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, we we tame our default proclivities …
As we have in seasons past, we have decided to be respectful to all the mothers in this league for at least one day of the season by renaming our regular Sunday series “Sunday Morning WTF?!” in honor of Mother’s Day to “Sunday Morning WTH?!?!” As in, “What the heck?!” or, “Whiskey Tango Hotel?” Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there!
We have also decided to revive a league favorite, which former SLPL owner Scott “Scoot Bigs” Allen shared with us way back in ’11. Scott said that it is a tradition in his country of origin to celebrate Mother’s Day by dancing around a scooter. We didn’t believe him until we dug up this video on the Interwebs. (BTW, Scoot’s the one wearing jorts.)
One great outcome of the camel towing auditions mentioned Sunday is that Endive Stadium will now feature cool between-inning entertainment, the Camel Run, where camels race between first and home. This guy looks to be an early favorite.
Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer sent us this message: "Ya know, we've really gotten away from posting instances like these the past couple years so might as well start again with a doozy." Thanks, Kevin!
Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer sent us this awesome Tweet with the comment "People should get 20 points for Céspedes' HR on Saturday night. That is simply amazing...I mean, it's a covered garbage can!?!? And on the fly too, with none of that bounce once or twice Sierra!"
This is bonkers, Cespedes home run went into a garbage can (that does not have a open top) in the bullpen. What are the chances that a ball hit will go into a garbage can that has openings in the front. You have to see it to believe it pic.twitter.com/O4goXPVz6Y
Mike Skoien of Maddog's Maulers moved into first place today. This makes us happy. Mike is one of our most passionate and enthusiastic owners. He spent his first few years trying to get a feel for the league, but now he's playing it like a wily veteran, making adept trades and not spending them all early. Also, he's not chasing mirage players, folks who look good at the beginning of the year but whose home runs dissipate into thin air as you get closer to the end of the season.
In this Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, we ponder our options …
Can I not go into the cage? If I go into the cage, can I keep my back against the back of the cage? Can I prevent the chum from getting in the cage with me? How about I just stay on the boat, eating the all-you-can-eat shark fin soup?
Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, thrill-seekers of the world?! I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!
