Mario Lopez Fabulously Throws out First Pitch

I’m not going to say Mario Lopez looks like he throws like a girl because that would demean AC Slater, from whom I learned much of how to approach the world. I’d say 90% of my social interactions and understandings about life are guided by or from episodes of Saved by the Bell. Besides I don’t need to SAY he throws like a girl, just look at the photographic evidence. Interesting side note, once, while playing catch in the backyard with my Dad, my sister came out and threw the ball to me, I told her she threw like a girl; she took it well, she beat me up later.

Also, peep the left wrist in the third photo in the gallery, I’m just saying…

I also really enjoy the picture of him batting where the ball is clearly already passed him.

A Metaphor for the Mets Season?

gold-plated-toilet_48An unnamed woman at last Wednesday’s Mets/Braves game at Citi Field in the bathroom when, somehow, her gold tooth fell out and into the toilet bowl. With advertisements for USCoins.com, a company that buys gold sprinkled around the new stadium, this woman knew she was flushing cold hard cash down the toilet. So she did the only reasonable thing; try to make a diving catch only to find her arm wedged and be completely stuck. Trapped in the toilet for some time, stadium security guards eventually heard her screams and called for emergency services, but they were unable to free her. Meanwhile the toilet continued to flush over her hand again and again. Finally, a plumber was called who freed her as a crowd formed around her, watching the spectacle.

The tooth went not recovered.

According to an anonymous Queens plumber, “The truth is, this kind of thing happens all the time — usually with wedding rings or cellphones. People have probably been getting their hands stuck in toilets as long as there have been toilets.”
