People Who Look Like Their Reputations

Some folks have the gift of hiding their flaws.  Then there are the rest of us.

Mitt Romney.  So fresh and so clean.  Such a good speaker.  Smooth to the max.  He’s as politician as politicians come: smarmy, creepy and full of s***.

How is Lindsay Lohan still getting work again?

And of course, in baseball, it doesn’t get any more pathetic then Mario Mendoza.  Not only is his career .215 BA and dismal .507 OPS a benchmark for awful, but just look at the guy.  Awkward.  Awkward.  And more awkward.

I don’t know this for a fact, but I would also be willing to bet Mendoza is a mouth-breather.

Hate me ‘cuz I’m crass, just don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Jeff

Mr. Krause got married.  YES!  HE GOT MARRIED!  So he’s off with his lovely wife, gallivanting the seven seas or something, til next week.  Until he returns, I’ll be driving the RSBS ship, and I admit, I have had a bit too much to drink.

Well congratulations Jeff! You took the plunge!

No, read more closely, Emma. Mr. Krause took the plunge. I am still happily unattached.

Looking at that baseball card, Mendoza is clearly either a mouth-breather or one of his teammates flashed him just as that photo was taken and it wasn’t pretty.
Congratulations to Allen and his bride, and best wishes for many years of happiness and fun together!

Awkward or not, the ’81 Topps are still one of my favorite sets of all time. Many happy memories of being a little kid and just getting into card collecting.
Congrats to Al! I wish them health and happiness.

Kristen — I wonder if his teammates gave him a hard time for being so bad.
Mike — Those were good cards for sure. The cartoon hat in the corner was copied by me many times.
