The Midnight Snack – Be Our Guest Edition

Tale as old as time
tune as old as song
fireballers throw hard
wunderkinds go yard
how can you go wrong?

My apologies to Howard Ashman (RIP to you and Jerry Orbach, too), but I’m thinking of my favorite Disney fairy tale adaptation this evening for some reason. Tonight’s Snack will have a more…enchanted flavor to it.

For there’s no man in town half as manly!/Perfect, a pure paragon!:  Noah Syndergaard is not Gaston. He’s not nearly as evil and conceited. But is he super strong and manly? Hell yes he is. Check this out:

There have been 20 pitches in the League that have been 100+ mph so far this year. Noah Syndergaard has thrown 14 of them. And apparently one of them hit poor Kevin Plawecki, the Mets’ catcher, right in the chest protector. I mean, look at that photo in the tweet. There’s a chest protector. Padding. Clothing. And with all of those layers, you STILL get completely branded by the high heat of the Son of Odin.

I, for one, welcome my new Asgardian overlord.

Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young Prince lived in a shining castle: OK, so Baltimore isn’t a faraway land (except for me, but everywhere is far from Cheeselandia), and Camden Yards isn’t necessarily a shining castle, but Manny Machado is a young prince. To follow in the enchantment theme of the evening, look at this home run that was promptly caught by Darren O’Day in the bullpen.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to listen to the ethereally wonderful Dame Angela Lansbury sing a perfect song about love being blind, and finding the true beauty within. (Please save any criticisms you have about Beauty and the Beast for another day; it really is one of my favorite movies of all time and I know it’s problematic, but I still believe that one day, weird bookish me will find her own prince to love who will love her in return).

Good night, fam.

  1. Ok, when do we discuss the nasty habit of chest shaving? Trigger warning before a pic like that, thanks. Gaston does not shave his chest. Nor Beast. It’s all scratchy. Yuck.

    Speaking of, I’m so disappointed, prof, that you didn’t work a gif of an MLB’er expectorating into your manly-beast post. Tsk.

    1. Only muscle heads shave their chests and when they get the acne from ingrown chest hairs…..well….you wouldn’t find that too attractive! Also, the steroids multiply the disgust factor. Source….Slappy the skinny armed guitar player who works out with the non cardio free lifters and watch them sweating all over the equipment and not wipe it off because it’s a weird sheen of pestilence that Madam Currie wouldn’t touch even with a full mops gear! But if you’re into that disgusting bulging muscle mass type shit…well….who am I to judge?

      You are free to be into whatever you are into…..until I get the GOP nomination, then… will be making me So many sandwiches!😉


        1. Maybe you could inform Oklahoma that fracking sucks and this is why you are having catastrophic consequences with earthquakes and your wells catching fire? I’m an ex junkie with delusional feelings of my own self worth, you my dear are someone who’s a professor! Whom do you think that they will listen to? I admit that the democrats haven’t put up the best that they could offer, but I am of the firm belief that Hilary Clinton or Bernie Sanders is a quantum leap forward compared to the blobfish and short fingered vulgarity.


        2. The official geologists told them so — issued a public report and everything. That was an awkward moment. They are still giving oil and gas companies rebates though.
