In honor of three Braves legends having birthdays today (my hero, Greg Maddux; my imaginary little bro Steve Avery, and David Justice), I have OD’d on imaginary birthday cake. Share it with me, fam.
#FlyTheW: CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN! Chicago has their best season opener since 1969. Ah, 1969, that storied year that Fergie Jenkins, Ron Santo (RIP forever), Randy Hundley, Billy Williams and Ernie Banks all played for the same team. This was the year that the Cubs were in first place for 155 days, until it all fell apart at the end of the season when they lost 17 out of 25 games.
But that was forever ago. And Joe Maddon is not Leo Durocher. We’re celebrating Rizzo and Bryant and J-Hey and even poor old Schwarb. And the Cubs keep on winning…
50 Shades of Grey Uniforms: Fun fact: I am colorblind! So I don’t know if this is actually as ugly as people say it is or not. I personally think it’s not so bad, but again, I can’t tell.
I kinda like it. I think it looks kinda futuristic. I’m not the only one, either.
It’s a lot better than those horrible color rush uniforms that the NFL shoved down our throats, the ones that, for many of us, had so little contrast that we couldn’t read the numbers on the back of the jerseys. Maybe they look better in person or something, but I like them. Of course, this is coming from the person who can’t read the numbers on the front of the Dodgers’ away jerseys because the dark blue and the red don’t have enough contrast for me. For real. I have to ask people to tell me what the numbers are.
