Why Is Clint Hurdle Orange?

Clint Hurdle.jpgLong a bothersome subject of the baseball world, RSBS and our talented staff of interns have finally decided to delve into this curiously confounding query: Why is Clint Hurdle orange?  While the definitive answer may elude us still, we continue to take great pride in narrowing it down to the following reasons:

Finally realized Matt Holliday wasn’t safe

He’s actually part Oompa loompa

Wished the Cash for Clunkers program existed when looking to trade in Danny Ardoin and J.D. Closser for the $145.64 they were worth

Just read Ann Coulter’s blog

Being shown up by Jim Tracy caused him to overcompensate by excessive tanning

But in the end, we are all fairly certain that the actual reason that Clint Hurdle is orange is because:

He’s addicted to Tang.

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Maybe he’s got that glow that Charlie Murphy saw when he met Rick James. Maybe Hurdle’s SI coverboy status made him the new Super Freak.

You maybe right, but I think he auditioned for the english ‘Tango’ commercial in england, which could be why he’s addicted to Tang here… check it out

needless to say they were eventually banned, due to the continued need for the average person to copy it when they saw someone drinking ‘Tango’

I vote Oompa Loompa.

Prince — Ha ha. Didn’t SI call him a “phenom”? Wow. Had to be a Super Freak.
Devilabrit — I will check it out when I’m at home… I have a feeling you’re leading me to something not suitable for work ;-)
Julia — I’m with ya. It’s not just the skin… it’s the hair and the round face too.

Jeff- I wouldn’t do that, unless they frown upon you watching funny vids on there time… it’s not obscene, the ads were on prime time tv….

lol. He is trying to attract the ladies with his best Don Johnson ‘Miami Vice’ look. Much cooler than the Colin Ferrel – Jaime Foxx attempt.

Just watched it, Peter. Spot on. I knew it.
Homer — MUCH cooler. You’re right… but less entertaining than both versions, that’s for sure.

Maybe he’s channeling his inner Cary Grant and is down with tanning. I mean c’mon now, fat old men want to look good too, ya know? [gag] I wouldn’t doubt that Don Johnson was an inspiration either.

So does this mean the Washington Nationals only have until Friday to try and get something for their “clunkers” in the Bullpen?
Man, that is a shame. Thought they at least had another month before surrendering all hope in 2009.

But isn’t that the rage at Oscar time in Cali. Orange skin that makes you look like a human carrot stick. Brought to you by anyone over 18 with an airbrush gun and a smile.

Don to mess with the Oompa Loompas. they were cannibals until they lost their stepladder and began eating chicken wings. Willy Wonka was lucky he looked like a freak, or he would have been victim number 8.

Lisa — Yes, Don Johnson seems to be at fault somehow, someway. We’ll get him.
RR — LOL. Oompa Loompas as cannibals… as if they weren’t scary enough already!
–Jeff

I’m with Steve. It’s definitely the carrots.

Steve — I had no idea. I thought eating carrots was to ward off blindness, or counter the effects of — nevermind.
Jane — See how I stopped myself there? tee hee.
–Jeff

another possible reason for you… looked at a bunch of pics of this guy and it seems when he is in the shade he’s orange when he’s not he has almost normal coloring… theory, is he has a solar cell in his head, when it gets dark his orange glow turns on…. just a thought…

Peter — That seems way too complicated for the golden boy from Floridia. I’m beginning to think it may be that god awful accent of his too straining his pigment levels.
–Jeff

Is he wearing an orange jacket too? Or are my eyes playing tricks on me (entirely possible)? If so, TOO MUCH ORANGE, CLINT!!! Actually, his face is too much orange. His skin color reminds me way too much of this girl I went to high school with. Too much tanning made her orange and she was an idiot. One of those “dear God my IQ is falling listening to her talk” people.

Jen — Totally know what you’re talking about. Happens to me every time I talk to a Cubs fan.
–Jeff

I’m personally voting for the oompa loompa, though maybe he’s been eating carrots nonstop. Certainly looks like he’s been eating something…

IBDB — Yes. A LOT of something :-)
