Can You Say “Epic Chickenfight”?

After the final game of the season, the Mariners as a team made a victory lap, tossing souvenirs to the fans and then they carried Ken Griffey and Ichiro off the field. I’m touched.

Now someone make them fight.

Why America Loves Ken Griffey

beltreIt took some prodding — not in that way — from manager Don Wakamatsu but Mariners third baseman Adrian Beltre finally agreed to wear a cup when he plays in the field. Despite a BLEEDING TESTICLE from taking a grounder off the junk, Beltre still wasn’t convinced that the cup was worthwhile.

“Adrian will wear a cup tonight,” Wakamatsu said before Tuesday’s game.

In a moment of pure comic genius, teammate Ken Griffey Jr. arranged to have Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” play when Adrian strode up to the plate for his first at-bat.

Brilliant.

Ken Griffey is Good at Following Instructions

picasion.com_c425ef58619a6491a4443a53af4ee6beDuring yesterday’s tilt against the Minnesota Twins, Ken Griffey Jr. went deep for the third time this year, and in the process won one lucky fan $25,000 thanks to hitting his homer into the Subway Hit it Here sign hanging in the Metrodome.

Of course, Griffey has practice at this sort of thing like in this commercial from his first tour with the Mariners.

That commercial is so old that he’s hitting balls out of the KINGDOME. Awesome.

Also, apologies on having to use an animated gif, but MLB still doesn’t allow anyone to share or embed their videos at all, which is nothing less of infuriating.
