Skip, Barry, Bluto and Jawline. "Oh, My God!"

Guys! I want the video of what happens just off screen, to the left. What we see are all those sad sack Indians fans fighting (hey, I can empathize … this was a brutal weekend). As Skip, Barry, and Bluto tumble and crumble down the aisles, a sad sack cop takes a spill into a seat just to the lower left of us. One minute it's an empty seat with sunglasses on the ground, the next second it's Sergeant Jawline, dazed and confused after slamming his ass into the folding seat. Where's video of that, I ask you?

It's A Shame

The worst part of these Drunk People Falling videos is that the people recording them are often just as drunk, which means we get some horrific camera work. C'mon, people, keep the damn camera still!

Unexpectedly Dark

Sorry about the unexpected darkness. All the trade received have been processed, backdated to their correct dates, so all y'all should be good to go.

So Long, Paul

The Santa Lechuga Power League bids a sad goodbye to Paul Ladurini, father to league mainstay Sue Klinkhamer, father-in-law to former owner Dan Klinkhamer, and grandfather to owner Kevin Klinkhamer and former owner Julie (Klinkhamer) Pankoke. Paul, who passed on August 3, was a big-hearted, loving man who adored his family. From Sue:

So long, Paul.

Cooler Heads Need to Prevail

We missed a bit while we were away and sick. Let's start with our favorite thing we missed, which was Amir Garrett taking on the entirety of the Pirates team, a thing to behold.

We're Going Dark Again

With apologies for the spotty coverage this season — it's been quite a year — we were dark for too long recently and now we're going dark again, maybe through next Tuesday. Having said that, we will try to update the stats and standings when we're on the road (we can't update this blog), so please check there every now and again.

The Lettuce Curtain

What the hell?! The Lettuce Curtain opens on Broadway-In-Santa Lechuga during the same week that the Koch-funded industrial curtain factory opens on Arroyo Loco Way in Santa Lechuga? I can't wait to read Voices of Monterey Bay's investigative report on this "coincidence"!

Deep Dive On Gaylord

It's either nostalgia or it's CSI-ing a long-ago train wreck, but I have found myself even more intrigued by Gaylord Perry's career after watching that Letterman interview. This here article is a nice recap to his infamous legacy. My only quibble is the use of the word "allegedly." I mean, just look at the subtitle of his book:

Speaking of Gaylord Perry

An hour or two after we posted yesterday's snark about "Ball Four" not being as good as "Me and the Spitter," we saw this fascinating article posted by SI. Interestingly, this article about Gaylord Perry starts with a quote from Jim Bouton's "Ball Four." The universe, man. The universe.
