:) "McRib"

Question: Was that researched or was that something you already knew? And, if so...why?

How could the Yankees give him number 24 without him earning it first?

Cleveland just beat the RedSox. I almost wanna give them a bit of a warble. But no. Fuck the explicitly racist Cleveland mongers in their burning river.

I don't think Cashman can take credit for "The Kraken". (Pretty sure I saw that very early on at RAB.) But I do think Cashman is part of the problem that created The McRib.

We're missing Mo and Jeter and Posada more than I ever could have imagined possible.

This post's origins fall somewhere between research and a topic already known. My first McRib experience occurred when Mustang brought them to our house on July 4, 1981--which is two years to the day before Dave Righetti's no-hitter at the Stadium in 1983. Nine years later, Gary Sanchez was born. There are nine segments of compressed pork belly in every McRib and nine innings in a complete baseball game. Multiply that by 10 and you get 90 feet--the distance from home plate to first base, which also happens to be the length of the average McDonald's drive thru straightaway. In a way, therefore, every sprint down the first base line is like running toward a bag of piping hot McRibs. In a perfect world, anyway....

If only that were actually true. We'd see no more lollygagging from Mr. McRib!

I’m suddenly reminded of Fudgie the Whale from the old Carvel commercials. Pretty fitting image for the Kraken gone to seed.
