Happy Dave Winfield Birth/Bobby Thompson Home Run Anniversary Day

Three score years ago, a New York Giant named Bobby Thompson hit a famous home run to win the pennant. The team went on to lose to the Yankees, but Thompson's clutch home run became one of baseball's most memorable plays from that era. On the same day, in a hospital in Minnesota, a bad-ass brother named David Mark Winfield came into the world.

To clarify, are we saying it's inconsiderate to have a sign saying "N*ggerhead" by our vacation home?

Nice knowing you, Rick Perry!

zman said...

No, I'm not saying it's inconsiderate. I'm saying it's racist. Scratch that. I'm saying it's reprehensibly fucking racist.

rob said...

that's a culturally insensitive statement, z. it's just a way of life for the good folks of rural texas.

Perry's just locking in the base.

I loved that they tried to say his dad did it "way back in 1983 or 1984."

I'm starting to think Mushy Mitt will be the guy. I think Christie ultimately holds off and hopes to be Jeb's VP candidate in '16.

Geoff said...

Christie's people sent an email to a small group of potential backers today saying "we haven't made a decision yet but if we do jump in, please plan on being at an event in Trenton on Thursday."

TR said...

Trenton in October is a magical place.

I think I screwed up zwoman's lone "good" bra. Would it be a bad idea to tell her "Just roll 'tits out'"?

Mark said...

Didn't you ruin her one "good bra" once already? I seem to remember you doing this a month or so ago.

How do all these Internet robots know that I am small and flaccid and target me with all sorts of emails about pIlls to make me large and turgid?
