I'm taking my blog where it's never been before, sports. I'm a fair weather sports fan. If a local team is doing well, I get on the bandwagon and start following along.
The Kansas City Royals are in the World Series playing the San Francisco Giants. Of course, I'm cheering for the Royals, but what I've been enjoying about the games is the humor surrounding a Giant's player named Hunter Pence.
Fans have been making signs about him that are kind of benign insults like:
- Hunter Pence has his mom drop him off at the stadium.
- Hunter Pence pours the milk before the cereal.
Why is Hunter Pence a target? According to Salon Magazine:
His throwing motion is weird, his swing is awkward, his tongue hangs out when he chases flyballs. Whatever he’s doing, wide-eyed Hunter Pence often looks out of whack.
These signs were seen in Kansas City:
- Hunter Pence doesn't recycle.
- Hunter Pence orders salad @ Oklahoma Joe's.
FYI: Oklahoma Joe's makes some of the best barbeque in Kansas City, probably the world, so ordering salad is just not done.
A few more that made me giggle.
- reads the Apple Terms and Conditions.
- can't parallel park.
- still has a Blockbuster card.
- brings 13 items to the Express Lane.
Apparently, Pence is all on board and has a great sense of humor as seen in this video:
And why wouldn't he laugh? He has a 5 year, $90 million contract!
NOTE: We'll return to our regular crafting and antiquing posts after the World Series.
