Happy Birthday, Commish!

Even though he always has his hands full...

Our faithful PFBL Commissioner always goes the extra mile when it comes to making sure our fantasy baseball league is the best around.

Happy birthday, bro!  Have a great one!

Look who's back in first place...

It's the first place Rockies!

Playoff baseball is here!

At Ford Frick Field, that is.

Go Reds!

Ham looks exactly the same . . .

But I'm not a fan of Squints having tattoos:

Kids, don't do drugs

Wow.  I guess female fertility drugs will do crazy things to a guy.

After he shrank down to normal size, ManRam did this:

Of all the bobbles in this commercial . . .

The one I want the most is the Minnie/Paul bobble at 0:19

That time John Hirschbeck went all Enrico Pallazzo...

On Sunday afternoon I had just settled into my recliner, excited to watch the Washington Nationals. Two members of the Colorado Tumbleweed were in the starting lineup, Bryce Harper and starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez. However, little did I know John Hirschbeck was the starting third base umpire, and he was intent on making that fact well known.

After Bryce Harper flopped his arms in disgust at Hirschbeck who called him out on a checked swing (a clown call if I've ever seen one), Hirschbeck then tossed Harper from the game when he then took off his helmet and dropped it on the ground in disgust. (animated gifs here)

Now witness the firepower . . .

This field stormer is nuts!

OSitF Weekend Highlight(s)

As far as I'm concerned, only one baseball game happened this weekend.  However, MLB Advanced Media's draconian video sharing policy prohibits me from posting the epic highlights from that game at this time.  Rest assured, I will post about it when MLB releases the videos from their dungeon.

Instead, enjoy Captain Kirk going into orbit to rob a homerun:

But even more impressive than that catch, this happened:

Even more creepy than a bobblehead . . .

Stiff competition

Tonight, the Rockies face the Rays.  On the bump for Tampa Bay will be David Price.

Here's how he fared in his last start:


An exciting sporting event will be held at Citi Field!

No, of course it isn't the Mets . . .

When a suicide squeeze goes wrong . . .

. . . try to find a creative way to avoid the tag, like this high school player:

V-Mart, on the other hand, isn't quite as creative:

Yu makin' me crazy!

Tommy Lasorda is not familiar with the type of thing he's seeing . . .

Last night, K-pop star Psy (yu know, the guy who did this much-lampooned song) went to the Rockies/Doyers game.  There, he met the Doyers players and put on the following dance number:

(Pay close attention to Tommy Lasorda, seated on the left)

Uncle Tommy knows exactly how Calculon feels . . .

Thoughts about April

Today is May 1, 2013.  Today, the Colorado Rockies are in first place:

Because of that, recent history says the Rockies have a coin flip's chance of winning the division.  I'll take that!  It's a far cry from what I expected--or anyone else for that matter.

Still, the month of April doesn't mean that much . . .

Does this count as defensive indifference?

The extra base didn't make much difference, as
