For some reason, that State Farm commercial where Kerry Wood finds The Hawk in the ivy at Wrigley Field cracks me up every time.
But if he made this face, it would be terrifying.
Fun fact, I own this card and actually wrote Griffey’s rookie year stats into the grid on the back. Great job!
Thanks to Griffey, this game exists.
Gold medal winner in Seoul, current Pale Hose skipper, owner of the longest hitting streak in Division I college history, punching bag to Nolan Ryan and deliverer of dramatic walk-off
grand slams singles in the playoffs, Robin Ventura has already lived a full baseball life at the age of 45.
Surprised to see he only made two All-Star teams as a player.
Yesterday, the oldest player still active in MLB.

Omar Vizquel, 45, became the oldest player to play shortstop in major-league history earlier this month.
Guess you can get away with that if you won 11 Gold Gloves back in the day.
Bad job by the Mariners to trade him to Cleveland for Felix Fermin and Reggie Jefferson. Can’t even blame the suits at Nintendo for that blunder.
KEITH: Ya know I hate to brag but, uh, I did win eleven straight golden gloves.
KEITH: I wouldn’t have brought it up but since you mentioned it.
ELAINE: Ha, I didn’t mention it.
KEITH: Well I won them anyway.
ELAINE: Well so what. I mean you played first base. I mean they always put the worst
player on first base. That’s were they put me and I stunk.
KEITH: Elaine. you don’t know the first thing about first base.
ELAINE: ha ha well I know something about getting to first base. And I know you’ll
never be there.
KEITH: The way I figure it I’ve already been there and I plan on rounding second
tonight at around eleven o’clock.
ELAINE: Well, uh, I’d watch the third base coach if I were you ‘cause I don’t think he’s
waving you in. You know I hate to say this but I think we’re really hitting it off. Get
it? Get it?
