So we had a long extended weekend, and that includes Chez Prof. I’m sure everyone’s seen the little bites I’ve lined up for us tonight, but they were great, and everyone likes leftovers!
The Greatest Gift Of All: Noah Syndergaard loves his teammates, but he especially loves Bartolo Colon. I mean, who doesn’t, but Thor really loves Bartolo. So much so that his entire family celebrated his greatness at Christmastime.
This is what the holidays are all about. Family. Fun. Outfitting everyone you love in Bartolo Colon tees.
Athletes! Just Like You and Me!: We tend to think of athletes as being these specimens of perfection, men and women who are never clumsy, never suffer from spaz attacks, never fall right on their asses doing something dumb.
I know that’s not the case – in fact, Derek Holland alone has broken me from that illusion all by himself – but the newest member of the Clumsy Athlete Club is the legendary Dan Uggla.
Uggs – a man I affectionately call Popeye/Beyonce due to his ample arm and booty – and his children were playing on a hoverboard. You can imagine what happened next. In fact, if the click the above link, you can see the glorious result for yourself. And speaking of children (yes, I know OG, children are horrible – BUT)…
Welcome To Our World: Adam Wainwright and his family have a new peanut.
Sometimes this world is a cold, horrible place, but then you think about the breathtaking promise of new life, the innocence of a child, and all of the hope they hold in the palm of their hands.
Congrats to the Wainwright family.
