we don't have that in baseball

#PickUpPitch Postcard

The #PickUpPitch Campaign is still going. We are sending letters, postcards, and emails to the content managers at Hulu, Netflix and MLB Network asking them to pick up our team. 

We’ll be releasing this postcard next week sometime and we’ll let you guys know when. Are you all interested in sending postcards again? Let us know by reblogging and leaving comments!

We understand that we have already sent baseballs and postcards before which is why we are asking that you #JustSend3. Consider sending one postcard to each of the platforms we are targeting to keep cost down but still get our message out. 

when your town's urban legends kinda suck
  • Rebellious Teen: My dad used to tell me this legend about a guy from around these parts who wore a pig-mask and was always carrying a baseball bat. He said that if you saw him, he would give you two riddles. If you got one right, he'd whack you with his bat and chase you off. If you got both right, he'd give you anything you desire. And if you get both wrong, well, you'd become a part of his mask.
  • Lethargic Teen: Wow, so was he like magical?
  • Rebellious Teen: I don't know.
  • Lethargic Teen: I mean, he could give you anything you desire so he has to be kinda magical.
  • Rebellious Teen: That's pretty much implied.
  • Lethargic Teen: Then why'd you say you don't know?
  • Rebellious Teen: I don't know.
  • Lethargic Teen: Also, does making you a part of his mask mean that he like shrinks you down so you're a very tiny person and he tapes you to the mask? Or is it more grisly in that he kills you and takes a patch of your skin to be a part of his mask?
  • Rebellious Teen: I don't know. We didn't come out here to talk about the logistics of this dude. We're here to see if he's real.
  • Lethargic Teen: *yawns* But, he's probably not real.
  • Rebellious Teen: Ugh! I know he's probably not real, but it's creepy and fun to think he is. Have you ever heard of fun?
  • Lethargic Teen: If I wanted to have creepy fun, I'd be at home playing Resident Evil which I much prefer to standing out here in these smelly woods.
  • Rebellious Teen: Can you chill for like two seconds and maybe enjoy your time out instead of being so damn pedantic?
  • Lethargic Teen: I don't even know what pedantic means. I'm legitimately too dumb to know.
  • *sound of footsteps on grass*
  • Rebellious Teen: Shit! Hide! *pushes lethargic teen beneath the bushes and peaks out to see who's coming*
  • Lethargic Teen: It sucks down here.
  • Rebellious Teen: *whispering* Shut the fuck up.
  • Lethargic Teen: You have a fat ass. Have we known each other for long enough that I can casually call your ass fat in a non-sexual way. Because you have a really fat ass and I'm only just noticing now.
  • Rebellious Teen: If you don't shut the fuck up right now, I'm going to literally choke you to death. But thanks. My ass is fat.
  • Pig-Mask: *walks by dragging a baseball bat attached to a leash behind him*
  • Rebellious Teen: Oh, fuck. He's real.
  • Lethargic Teen: It's probably just some guy dressed like him.
  • Rebellious Teen: I'm going to confront him!
  • Lethargic Teen: You're gonna get killed maybe. I don't know.
  • Rebellious Teen: *hops out of the bushes* Hey, pig-mask!
  • Pig-Mask: *slightly glances behind him* ...Oh, bother.
  • Rebellious Teen: I know all about you. So... uhh...
  • Pig-Mask: Can we just get this over with. I want to go home.
  • Rebellious Teen: Uhm.
  • Lethargic Teen: *crawls out of the bushes*
  • Rebellious Teen: What do I do?
  • Lethargic Teen: Iunno. You're the one who knows the legend.
  • Rebellious Teen: Yeah, but the legend doesn't really say how you're supposed to go about confronting the guy.
  • Pig-Mask: Oh yeah, I'm supposed to ask you guys two questions.
  • Lethargic Teen: Two questions each?
  • Pig-Mask: I'm really tired so you guys can share two. One for each of you.
  • Rebellious Teen: I'm fucking fired-up! Shoot those damn riddles at me! I don't care! I'm not afraid of you!
  • Pig-Mask: Please don't yetll. Here is my first riddle: Who is the uhh... what is... uhm... what day is it?
  • Lethargic Teen: Wednesday.
  • Pig-Mask: Hmm... is that right? *looks down at baseball bat* Is today Wednesday?
  • Baseball Bat: *wan* *wan*!
  • Pig-Mask: Yeah, today's Wednesday. Congratulations you got it right.
  • Lethargic Teen: That wasn't a riddle.
  • Rebellious Teen: Seriously, that was just a super easy question.
  • Pig-Mask: Oh, bother... I guess your second test will have to be a riddle. Oh, bother. Let me get out my riddle book. *digs in his pants* Bother, bother, bother, bother... here we go.
  • Pig-Mask: *opens his tiny book* Okay, so... this one's not good. This one is kind of racist. I don't think this one is in English. Whatever. *tosses book* Here is your second riddle. What day is it?
  • Rebellious Teen: You asked that already!
  • Pig-Mask: Yeah, I did. Sorry... I guess. *sighs*
  • Lethargic Teen: *yawn* This guys sucks.
  • Rebellious Teen: Yeah, dude! You really fucking suck!
  • Pig-Mask: Sorry, my dad was a lot cooler. I have depression and anxiety and stuff. I haven't really been in any sort of mood recently, y'know. Feels like nothing even matters anymore.
  • Rebellious Teen: It really was a waste of time coming out here. Come on. Let's go home.
  • Lethargic Teen: Finally, can you carry me there?
  • Rebellious Teen: Sure, hop in my arms.
  • Lethargic Teen: *hops on up and smooches rebellious teen right on the cheeks* I'm going to pass out in your arms now. *goes limp*
  • Rebellious Teen: Goddamn, you're heavy. Why did I agree to do this? *waddles away*
  • Pig-Mask: Ah, their relationship is so wholesome. I wonder what it feels like to carry another human?
  • Baseball Bat: *wan* *wan*!
  • Pig-Mask: No, like a living human. Also, since when can you bark like a dog and stuff.
  • Baseball Bat: *gone*
  • Pig-Mask: Oh, you weren't real. *cocks head to the side* I wonder where I got this leash from? Just another of the mysteries of the world, I guess.

Things that confuse me in Fallout 4:

  • you can heal Nick Valentine…with a stimpack??
  • burnt and ruined books, empty lunchboxes and napkins somehow don’t count as “Junk” but functional circuit boards, biometric scanners and distress pulsers do
  • How the Institute hasn’t found the Railroad HQ yet, considering there is a massive red line leading directly to a location that has their fucking logo painted on the outside wall
  • the password is  R-A-I-L-R-O-A-D ffs how has nobody besides some random dude from a vault figured this out before
  • how did Ironsides get on that ship. also where did he get that sweet hat
  • Diamond City people remember what Halloween and Christmas is, but have forgotten how baseball works despite living in an old baseball stadium
  • how can the Bobrovs have a Russian accent when nobody’s had contact with Russia in 200+ years? same for Cait’s Irish accent or Proctor Quinlain’s british
  • “yes I’m sure this 200 year old irradiated canned slop is still good to eat”

Finchel AU: inspired by the movie ‘Never been kissed’ 
↳ Rachel is a journalist who goes undercover as a 17-year old student in her old high school. Unfortunately she didn’t count on falling in love with her teacher, who doesn’t know she’s not actually his student. 

toppdogg as conversations i've overheard at my performance&arts school

  • sangdo: *someone playing amazing grace on the saxophone in the hallway* "do you hear that?" "wow i've been cleansed of all stress" "it's only second period" "i've been cleansed john"

nikioftime replied to your post “now I want to hear your dating advice!”

One time I talked for too long about how I played the bassoon in middle school and also how sucky the baseball game we were at was and now we’ve been going out for 9 months. I don’t know how this happened.

there you have it

just talk about your marching band experience and complain about sports and you’re set

OH MY GOOD FUCK LOOK AT THAT T-REX WITH THE ILL FITTING T-SHIRT AND BASEBALL CAP

THAT MAD SCIENTIST WITH THE SKULL MASK, THE LUCHADOR SHARK, THE SKELLYS, THAT CUTE LADY IN THE DEVIL COSTUME!

Honestly fuck Sun & Moon, YW3 has me by the balls now. We even have a Colonel Sanders Yokai that looks like Hungramps that appeared in the other leaks!

Also Mulder and Scully from X-Files are in the game as well…

OKAY

WE WINNED!!!! 3-1 in 13 against the Cardinals!

My Player of the Game: Smarj for going toe to toe against Carlos Martinez, who was pitching just a little bit better. Also, Christian Arroyo for that two run hit in the 13th. 

I am, however, very disappointed with Buster because you don’t fucking show up a teammate on camera. I know that BB9 did not do a thing after Buster specifically told him to do that thing, but honestly it wasn’t that big a mistake. And even if it was, you yell at him in the dugout, not on the field.

And look, I get that I go a little Mama Giraffe when it comes to BB, but I don’t care who it is, the captain of the team shouldn’t show up one of his players in public.

anonymous asked:

Bet you watched Gohan play sports in SHOCK AND AWE!

     The first time he played baseball I was pretty stunned, yeah, but sports? Do you know we played football and Gohan scored two goals? Impressive? Would have been if he scored them in the right net. Clearly, I fell for the greatest sports star in history.” 

And on the last game of the 2016 season the Phillies closed it out with a win and an incredible display of respect for Ryan Howard. Fans came out in droves to say goodbye. The Phillies organization held a pregame ceremony and offered gifts and memories. Howard was drafted by the Phillies in 2001 so to spend 15ish years with one team meant for an emotional goodbye. He was NL rookie of the year in 2005 and one year later became the NL MVP in 2006. He was a 3 time all star, 2 time home run leader, 3 time RBI leader and of course a World Series champion. Howard was a vital part of the Phillies during their reign not only for his talent but as his worth of being an extraordinary teammate. That’s the first thing anyone who has played baseball with him will say about him. Ryan Howard is a genuinely good human being and we were all lucky to have him. I personally will miss the hell out of him. My favorite moment of being at a Phillies game came from one of his home runs, I still get chills thinking about it. Good luck Ryan, we hope you know Philly will always love you.

the signs as shit my sister (a virgo) has actually said
  • aries: "These people should have like three statues of me by now, I've saved them so many times. I want statues!"
  • taurus: "I have tiny hands!"
  • gemini: "You have to pay attention or the lizard kills you."
  • cancer: "She's been making tea since the Great Depression, leave her alone."
  • leo: "DO NOT. FUCK. THE DARKSPAWN."
  • virgo: "Animal milk is for babies, nut milk is for grownups."
  • libra: "How deep is too deep?"
  • scorpio: "I don't really have /serious/ intrusive thoughts, because things like murder are things i think about deliberately."
  • sagittarius: "Obi-Wan can force penetrate meeeeeee!"
  • capricorn: "Having noodles without sauce is like having a dick without lube."
  • aquarius: "And then where would we be? Truly and utterly fucked...or not as fucked as we wanted to be."
  • pisces: "There's no looting in baseball!"

imagine Steve and Bucky doing like renovation work around their neighbourhood bc they want to get to know people, and they’re working for a senior citizen but then they discover it’s someone they knew back in the day. Like maybe it’s little suzie who was 8 years old lived down the street and had the biggest crush on 17 year old Steve Rogers and always said hello to him when he passed her house in the morning and Bucky used to tease him about his little not so secret admirer. And then she’d tell him all about the life she had and her family and the things her kids went on to do and when they leave Steve notices Bucky looking kinda sad and he asks him about it and he tries to brush it off as nothing, but then he’s like “you ever think about what if Stevie? like what if things had worked out differently and we’d gone home and had families and grown old together?” and Steve’s quiet and then he goes “We could still have that Buck. A family. If you want to, we could do it all, buy a house, get a yard, adopt 2 little kids. Boy and girl, boy first so our little girl always has someone looking out for her, put up a treehouse and teach them how to play baseball. The whole 9 yards Buck, we can have that. And we already grew old together…but I’m not going anywhere if you ain’t”

DS9/Space Jam parallels (a.k.a “I honestly can’t believe I’m actually doing this”)

So here we have…

… a cast of colorful characters, being tought to play a popular American sport…

… by a black guy with an attitude, to compete against a team…

… of super strong and skilled aliens…

… who’s leader happens to be a real asshole.

Also, might I point out that at one point in Space Jam, Michael Jordan is seen playing baseball himself (which he used to do at the time the film was being filmed).

anonymous asked:

yeah you should totally hit ichi with the bat i mean i have a feeling that he wont feel pain :3c you should totally try it

Ehhhh…

That’s not how we usually play baseball but that could be a cross between baseball and wrestling I guess? I gotta think about it. Only if Nii-san’s up for it though =D But Nii-san is up for many fun things, he’s a great bro! =D

As part of the “Audition Dance” scene in You Were Never Lovelier (1942), Fred Astaire had to jump up on Adolphe Menjou’s desk and hit him over the head his cane on a certain two beats. Talking about the experience in his autobiography, Astaire wrote:

When we got around to shooting the number, Adolphe said to me, “Now, don’t be afraid to really hit me on the head. I’ve got a hard head.” I carried out Dolphe’s wishes that first take when the cameras rolled.

He told me afterward, “I wish I had kept my big mouth shut - I didn’t know that cane was a baseball bat.”

When I told him he should have yelled, “Cut!” or something, he said, “I couldn’t. I was unconcious.”
