That should get an award right there. Made me choke just a little on my apple jacks.
Not to digress, but I have a couple of quibbles with Jim Day's reportage last night...
First of all, he said it was Mark Belanger's birthday yesterday. Umm, no. We don't have birthdays anymore after we die. RIP MB 10-6-98.
Also, no one should ever use the word "jubilant' unless they can pronounce it. Its JUBILANT, not JUBULANT. Points to Welsh on the same broadcast for pronouncing it correctly.
And lastly, does the Reds reliever honor his heritage and pronounce his name Lih-Cure' or how Jim day pronounces it, Lick'-er? Just askin'.
mmmmmmm, Apple jacks
Haha, I rather like Sam Licker! Thats pretty good. I can hear Thom after a strikeout now, "Sam LIcked him good!"
***SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT***
I nominate my very own "Pog??? Where Are You Buddy?" thread. It has some epic Reds/Cardinal trolling going on it it.
I have to nominate the thread where redfactor was seeking help getting his very own aviator. Then he went all redfactor on us in that same thread. That was a classic.
I'll nominate it, but in the end I might have to cast my vote for Gene's meltdown live thread.
I'm charmed beyond words.
I don't actually want to start these threads, but here are my contributions for today:

As a Hoosier I take offense to that comment... we all know that Indiana women love the long ball!
There's the redfactor thread. He went all redfactor and got himself banned, so his posts are gone. He started the thread with something like this: "Am I missing something? I am trying to get an aviator but I can't seem to get it up."
The good posts weren't from him, anyway.
