“I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the Designated Hitter.” – Crash Davis, as part of one of the best movie rants of all time, spawned the name for my new little corner of the Internet:

If you like baseball and don’t like Bull Durham, we probably can’t be friends.  Also, you might not have a soul.  But just watch this clip.  “Let’s have some fun out here! This game’s fun, OK? Fun, goddamnit.” – Crash Davis

Again, Crash had a point.  Sports are supposed to be fun.  I mean, that’s why we’re fans, right?  So, I’m going to hang out here and make fun of things.  Moustaches, beards, terrible fashion, weird things, things that make me laugh, things that make me concerned for the future of our society.

I say things about sports and post pictures of old pieces of cardboard.  Here, you will find nostalgia and shenanigans with some tomfoolery mixed in to fuck shit up.  Also, I’m going to inflict my opinions upon you.  I’m not going to say that I’m always right, but people who know me say that I’m pretty much a blend of Jesus and Einstein.  So brace yourself for that.

AstroTurf is so wrong.

Welcome aboard.
