A couple of baseball things
1)Mets catcher Henry Blanco and legendary movie badass Danny Trejo (From Dusk Til Dawn, Desperado, Con Air) share a similar look. Even though Blanco has been good at throwing out base runners imagine how much more intimidating the Mets would be if Blanco mixed in tossing a couple of throwing knives ( a la Danny Trejo) at opposing base runners. I think it would would throw off the oppositions concentration and maybe the Mets would win a few more games (although at this moment they aren’t doing too bad and are over .500) Look, the Mets are going to have to be creative if they’re going to do well this year, they should at least entertain the idea.
2)Conservative pundit George Will has just released a revised version of his best seller Men At Work and guess what, it’s about baseball. I know George Will as being the author of many best selling books about “new wave” rock bands including; The Arresting Music of Sting and The Police, also Fabulous! The Authorized Fabulous Poodles Story, and Joe “King” Carrasco and the Spicy Tex-Mex Rock Revolution. So I thought Men At Work was going to be about the lads from “Down Under” written by my fave “new wave” rock expert, I had no idea he was a baseball fan. Oh well, live and learn.
