Whoa. Sidney Ponson’s starting tonight in Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Mets. And who is he starting for? That’s right. The New York Yankees. Hells, yeah. Another hottie pitcher for my team. Unfortunately, Mr. Ponson has slimmed down a bit and had grown that dreaded mullet. He is definitely way woofier with a shaven head. Anyway, you guys can decide for yourself if my mullet-hating ways is justified.
Mr. Ponson, yes, that’s a good pose right there…
…And, yes, turn around for the camera. Good job!
You see? Perfection. Isn’t it? Now, look at the new look:
Mr. Ponson, I think you broke my camera with your 100 mph mullet.
Oh, yeah. Sweat and nipplage action. 😉
Call me strange, but I tend to get excited when a pitcher starts to sweat profusely, especially when he’s about to blow lose a game. Something about his “defeated” expressions that seem to border on my bondage fetish of sorts. Here’s Sidney, sweating it up. Good news for me, bad news for the Orioles fans.
Finally here are some artifacts of the chubbier Sidney Ponson…
One of the reasons why Joba caught my fancy was the fact that he resembles a tall and beefy bear that I’ve been stalking following through the years: Brian Leckner.
You can currently find him as the “losing” contestant in that Round-Up commercial as he’s using an old-fashioned weed-killing pump instead of the easy-to-use Round-Up weed killer spray.* (If anybody could find that commercial, that would be cool.)
* Round-Up, make sure to send the check to..
Here’s a collage of him in the film, Mimic 2. He played a stalking (how’s that for irony) ex-boyfriend who later becomes a victim of the titular mutated insects. It’s not really a spoiler because this collage is basically the only screen time he has in the film.
And to stick with the theme of pesticides and insecticides…
Joba Chamberlain was also a victim of a swarm of insects during Game 2 of the AL Divisional Series at Jacobs Field on October 5, 2007 in Cleveland, Ohio. Upon closer look, these insects appear to be the Chironomus plumosus. And upon even closer look, these Chironomus plumosus were led by a…
And for some strange reason they feasted on Chamberlain, the beefy right-hander who helplessly stood on the rubber struggling to see Posada’s target as the tiny pests buzzed around his head. As some of them stuck to his muscular, sweaty neck and back, Chamberlain came unhinged.
Yeah, yeah. I’m a fan of the Evil Empire. But let’s put down our differences for a moment, and appreciate the fact that the Yankees currently has one of the cutest (yeah, I said, “cutest”) baseball pitchers right now: Joba Chamberlain.
In a couple of hours, he’s playing his third start of the season against the hot-hitting Houston Astros. He didn’t pitch too good in his first start, but showed promise and control in his second start. Will he quiet the Astros’ bats tonight? If I’m a betting man, I’m putting money that Joba will mature into a woofy bear, just like Bob Wickman… Lol. What did you think? I’m putting money on the Yankees? Well, I do live in Las Vegas… -_^
Apparently, we won’t be seeing too much of this excited Joba as the sports
media consider his emotional outbursts to be unprofessional and excessive.
What a shame.
