There's Only One Bob ROHRman ... Jersey!

Joe Kelly does us a favor again — sending us more of the ol' coveted blog fodder — by passing the following image along with the comment "There's only one Bob Rohrman … jersey."

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:

Nor Wanted

Joe Kelly, owner of Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox and SLPL's leader in the Overall Standings, took some time out of his overall leading to direct our attention to a story that has since gone viral. Here it is.

The title of Joe's email was "No comment needed …"

We agree.

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.

Nacho Hero

Overall Standings leader Joe Kelly, owner of Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox, sent us this link touting the heroism of a fan who saved nachos. Impressive, sure, but we are even more impressed at the nachos delivery device deployed at Atlanta's ballpark. Check out the size of that thing. Even more impressive, you can later put that helmet on, though you should grab a few extra napkins to wipe all the excessive nachos cheese and jalapeño juice out of your hair.

How Are Things Working Out for You?

Lots and lots of trades while we were away — are you guys waiting for us to leave before making trades or is our blog fodder just so entertaining that you can't help but be distracted from making the big decisions? — but we are now up and running and all caught up.

So, how are you doing this season? Everything working out the way you had hoped?

We Are Going Dark Again

We are hitting the road — Toronto this time; I wonder of the Blue Jays are in town? — and will be without the ability to update the website until Monday morning. If you make trades, you'll have to wait until we get back for us to process them, which we will do retroactively to the date they should go into effect.

As has become our want, here's a nice video for you to enjoy until we get back.

Boog's Grandson?

Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox owner Joe Kelly, who is still the league's Overall Standings leader, sent us this link to remind us that past-MLB star Boog Powell may have reproduced … and his offspring may, too, have reproduced.

We Are Going Dark

Speaking of the road to nowhere, we will be on the road and without the ability to update the website until Wednesday morning. If you make trades, you'll have to wait until we get back for us to process them, which will do retroactively to the date it should go into effect.

Epic Rant Is Epic

We here at the front offices of the Santa Lechuga Power League can go through an entire season without hearing a peep from our owners about how the league runs, what we might do to improve, what's top-of-mind about the league, what folks hate about the league, just how much folks hate us, etc. Heck, we have gone multiple seasons in a row without any commentary being shared with us, which is fine by us 'cause, you know, our egos are impenetrable and we wouldn't listen to what you're saying anyway. "Waaa. Waaa. Waaa. Is Charlie Brown's teacher talking or something?"

But then, last night happens, in what we imagine is the after-effect of many shots of some choice libations. This rant happens:
View post on imgur.com
Boy, howdy, that's so awesome. With all the earmarks of the Unabomber stumbling upon three cases of lost Scotch in a cabin with spotty Wifi connection that he is somehow compelled to use, this is a rant so excellent that we can honestly say that it reinvigorates our desire to have owners share their honest if unhinged thoughts about us with us more often. This is pure beauty. But, please, other owners, before you rant, use this template: Alcohol + Observations about League + Random Slams of Fellow Owners + Send Button. Anything less than that will fall very flat and not tickle us nearly as much.

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.

In this week's edition of Sunday Morning WTF?!, comes courtesy of Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox owner Joe Kelly who somehow still has time leading the league to send us fun stuff like this …

As Joe says, rules are rules.

Behold the Bobblehead Museum at Marlins Park


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!
