Jolly Good Theater

Ever so often, I have to take a side street and today it's because my beloved Texas Rangers are wearing on my last nerve. This little scene summoned a memory of Elizabeth Swann's lines from Dead Man's Chest during the three way sword fight on the beach of Isla Cruces:

"This is barbaric! This is no way for grown men to settle- Oh! Fine! Let's just pull out our swords and start banging away at each other!"
Okay, fellas, let's just clear the benches and start pounding away at each other. That will win you a division title. My compliments to Ian Kinsler, Michael Young and Freddy Guzman who took consecutive hits and walked to their base without even glancing at the mound. As for the rest of you --

"I've had it with wobbly-legged, rum-soaked pirates!"
-- or testosterone-soaked Rangers.

Yeah, but I actually just put the shirt on OVER the tank top. No t-shirt is gonna tell me what to do!
