Walk Like an Egyptian

I called the guy at the warehouse today, told him to get those 35,000 ancient Egyptian headdresses out of mothballs and up to the Stadium, pronto.

I also renewed my exclusive rights to Steve Martin's "King Tut" and the Bangles' "Walk Like an Egyptian" videos.

Thairo the Pharaoh is coming!

Seriously, I mean, the guy got shot, and now he's playing for the Yankees.

How great is that?

We've never had a player who got shot before.  Except for that time in 1925, of course, when Babe Ruth took a double shotgun blast from Ty Cobb, right in the gut.

The Babe played both ends of a doubleheader the next day, and knocked in the winning run in both of them. They knew how to play through the small hurts back then.

Holy shit. This team is total crap now.

Maybe the Pharoah will surprise us. They got the bullet out, I read.

Jake Barrett, slagheaper extraordinaire. We can never have too many 5+ ERAs.

So the guy " that got shot " meets the guy who shot up his girlfriend's garage?

Too perfect.
