Brewers Fans Have Suffered For Too Long

You might remember the Brewers fans last year who pledged to pee their pants if the team could actually make the playoffs for the first time since 1982. Or maybe you don’t well, regardless, after yesterday’s victory and subsequent Mets loss, the Brewers were IN, and “Brewers Mike” the creator of peeyourpantsforthebrewers.com lived up to his promise. Joining him so far are another 7206 crazed Brewers fans. To be fair, it’s unclear how many of these fans would have peed their pants irrespective of the outcome thanks to their weekly brat and beer intake. I don’t want to take too much away from the Brewers’ accomplishments and their fans dedication though, so, by all means enjoy this video, one of many that will be up on youtube as the fans live up to their pledge. Congratulations for now Milwaukee.

Jets Fans Party the Best!

Jets fans, already showing poor judgement in actually being JETS fans, are clearly diseased in the brains. Take for example this smart person who parked their car in the Meadowlands’ lot and headed out into the game. Unfortunately for them, they parked their car on top of smoldering coals! Good thing too because I’m almost positive gasoline and charcoal are best buds. I do however LOVE the dude hanging out enjoying his cigar and surveying the scene, now THERE is a man who knows how to enjoy the finer car fires in life.

Continuing the Celebration Mishaps

Here is Phillies erstwhile ace/closer/minor leaguer Brett Myers celebrating the Phillies clinching their playoff spot as the NL East winners. Myers, a noted feminist cum wife-beater, shows how he respects and appreciates women even more by showering local reporter Jamie Apody with a beer bukkake explosion. I love Myers and the other Phillies raiding the tub of beer like they are college sophomores sneaking into a party and putting all the beer in their pockets. Scared to drink champagne boys? Are you concerned that if you don’t pound Bud Lights as you spray them all over your teammates that people might start to talk?

He Was Just Being Friendly

I guess trying to be playful and get in the head of your opponent isn’t always the best tactic. Take for example this boxer who I think immediately regrets kissing his foe.

Tampa Bay Not Experienced at Celebrating

I am very excited by the Tampa Bay Abbadon Rays finally entering the playoffs, and as a divison champ no less! If they weren’t in the AL East I would be a HUGE Rays fan. I lOVE the Rays. But alas, they play my friendly Red Sox and so must be crushed in our wake. For the Sox, a team accustomed to celebrating regular and then post-season success, the celebrations have become expected, and if not for Jonathan Papelbon would be almost stale. The Rays, unsure of how to properly celebrate their moment made some mistakes but hey, they’re new to this so we’ll give them a break. Then again, here they are drinking Bud Light out of a protective cup so…

So, Johnny Gomes likes to drink in the sweat of his teammates’ junk, which is special and I guess helps foster the true spirit of comradery. Also the team managed to persuade the hipster manager, Joe Maddon into taking a healthy swig too, which is all the more impressive since Maddon is such a big oenophile. That means he likes wine a lot smart guys!

F1 Turns on the Lights

I guess F1 racing at night is a super big deal, mostly since before now it has never happened. Enter Singapore who has been prepping for some time now for this historic race. Thanks to a

floodlight system comprising 1,500 light projectors attached to 246 pylons, each 33ft tall, placed at 350-yard intervals around the circuit.

This makes it four times brighter than a floodlit football stadium and so dazzling that the drivers will need to wear special sunglasses.

 Power for the lights, linked by 67 miles of cable, is provided by 48 generators churning out 3,180,000 watts  –  enough to provide electricity for 2,400 apartments.

Anyways the pictures of the course look pretty dope. Like an awesome videogame level that I would love to crash my virtual car into over and over.

Check out the images below and for larger versions go to the original story here and for even nicer and higher-res images, as ever, my favorite picture blog, The Big Picture has a bunch.

Who is Excited for the PLAYOFFS!

I know Prince Fielder is! What is it with the Brewers and the money shot, it’s like, as a team, they have the exact same fetishes. Maybe that’s taking team chemistry a little too far guys.
Anyways it’s PLAYOFFS TIME BABY! I’ll have my full predictions up tomorrow (I know you can’t WAIT) when we finally know who wins the AL Central, so long choking White Sox!
