Tevye Can’t Touch THIS Tradition

tevye.jpgI know what you’re thinking, dear readers, and let me assure you: yes, indeed I did just make a Fiddler on the Roof reference.


That’s because, as I write this, Major League pitchers and catchers are reporting to their respective training camps; and after a long, cold, hard winter of Brad Lidge, Milton Bradley and Kyle Farnsworth bashing, we can all finally relax knowing our hallowed game is springing back to life.

A year ago this week, my cynical and oft busy-body colleague Mr. Allen Krause, and I took to the streets of Chicago to proclaim our undying crush on the game of baseball.  Luckily for you there was a film crew following us, not to mention an ebullient David Archuleta, who lent us his tunes, to make a point.

And as we hope will be a long and prosperous tradition of ringing in the new baseball season, we (re)present to you the definitive RSBS tradition:

Hell yes, we love our baseball and no, we aren’t afraid to show it.

Now, aren’t ya glad I didn’t write that Evan Bayh piece I was workin’ on?

Nah. You can’t hate me today. ‘Cuz you know I’m right.

    BTB — Hehehe… I forgot that a lot our newer friends haven’t seen that yet. Good times!
    Cici — You’re right. We haven’t been nice to Brett. And we have no reason to start. LOL.

    Well, that video explains the origin of the “About Me” photo of you two. Cool vid. No, I had not seen it, either (too busy with my Red Sox blogs–the things you miss out on…) 😉
    Thanks for the re-intro of the video. And nah, no reason to let up on Brett Myers! Take care.

    BTB — Like a fine wine…
    Jane — I think that’s everyone’s favorite part. The definition of taking one for the team.
    Prince — Oh no… highly doubt that. I don’t have the right *ahem* look.

    I am still wondering when we might see the RSBS.0 Show on Comedy Central.
    Got to admit, you guys could give Tosh a run for his videos in a New York minute.
    But I digress as I bite into a mountain-sized slice of a pre-prepared Gino’s East deep dish meat quagmire we had shipped down to Florida as my yearly signal for the boys to get ready to take the chilly Florida morning owrkouts tomorrow at 10:30 am in Port Charlotte, Florida.
    No cheesesteaks, no Sabretts dogs, no BBQ. Tonight it was all about the deep dish………Still trying to figure out how you fold one of these slices (lol)…….Where are the forks again?
