Hey friends. I’m trying to knock a cold out so I’m a little whatever-y on Nyquil. And I’m posting this way before midnight because. Just because.
Here’s some fun stuff.
Fred and Lar, BFFles forever: One of the best things to happen to Braves fans in the last few years was something that didn’t actually take place on the diamond. Instead, it happened on a frigid, snowy night in Atlanta, on a crowded highway.
It was 2014. Poor Freddie Freeman was stranded. He was running out of gas, stuck in the middle of nowhere in the cold, no way to get home. He tweets for help, and help he received, in the form of the man, the myth, the legend. The one and only Larry Wayne Jones.
Chipper rescued the South’s favorite friendly Freeman!
To celebrate this moment in history, the Braves are going to give away Freddie and Chipper on an ATV bobbleheads this year.
I need this bobble, friends. I need it. It would have a special place of honor next to my Chipper flashing the I Love You hand gesture bobble, my Roy Oswalt in a wizard hat bobble, and my Scooter Gennett bobble that I traded a stuffed animal for.
Guess I’m gonna have to eBay this awesome thing.
I Now Pronounce You Husband and Wife. You May Kiss The Mascot: My dream wedding was going to be at a baseball field, with my nuptials taking place on the pitcher’s mound. Sadly, that didn’t happen. But this bride and groom took their awesomeness to the next level.
The fact that a mascot rallied the wedding crowd is freakin’ rad. The fact that the mascot was wearing tails and walked a bride down the aisle is even better.
I’m officially jealous, and I don’t even like the White Sox.
All I know is that I would totally invite Orbit to any future life event I have a ceremony for.
