Leyland Smokes the Competition


My dear friend Dan Rohde is an elitist...when it comes to baseball entertainment. Just because he grew up in Milwaukee he thinks the Brewers are the pinnacle of Major League Baseball. This elitist attitude also includes MLB entertainment. Apparently, Dan's world came crashing down as he pondered the "fixing" of the sausage race. Read about it on his blog.

Well, Brat Wurst and his sausage brethren have been officially dethroned. The Toledo Mud Hens have unleashed the coup de gras of all mascots: Jim Leyland. Not only will this old geezer whoop up on the sausage trifecta, he'll roll them up after the race and smoke what's left of their sorry mascot selves.

Have you been sitting out by the pool too much and the sun getting to you? The stench from your feet finally fried all of your brain cells? I am sorry but no other mascot in all of professional sports can compete with the Bratwurst (#1), Polish Sausage (#2) the Italian Sausage (#3), Hot Dog (#4) and Chorizo (#5).

On a different note I had a bent rim on my mountain bike so I put a new wheelset on it yesterday...ouch.

Chorizo. Nice. Leyland may not have lungs for an endurance race but he's good for one trip around the bases...as long as oxygen in a can is at home. You need to stop with the jumps and tricks.
See you on the 28th. Oh, wait, that's right. I won't. I'll save some food and mail it your way.

The sausages would beat "The Skipper" - I think not. Now all I need are Mario and Rod mascots and my life will be complete!

The next mascot they should make is the Marlboro Man. Where is the cig hanging out of his mouth?

The Marlboro Man would be perfect because if the race gets out of hand he can use the lasso to trip the competition, stomp them with his horse and blaze the competition in a nicotine-induced state of mind...........
