Let Them Eat Cookies – Charleston River Dogs

Wednesday, July 26, 2006

The Charleston RiverDogs are ticked off (rightly so) at Sesame Street’s decision to force Cookie Monster to cut back on his cookie consumption. The RiverDogs will protest the decision by forming a picket line outside the gates, passing out free cookies and holding a cookie eating competition. Sesame Street felt America’s childhood obesity problem necessitated Cookie’s better eating habits. Charleston counters by having children wear inflatable sumo wrestler outfits and chase cookies around the infield. Think about it.

Tribute to Ed Gaedel – St. Paul Saints

Saturday, July 22, 2006

The Saints will play small ball by honoring midget Ed Gaedel, who wore the number 1/8 as a major league pinch hitter. Midgets were subsequently banned from baseball in the “best interest of the game.” The Saints will test that assertion by bringing a team of midgets to play a simulated three-inning game before the Saints’ American Association game against St. Joseph. What to do with 1/8? What to do…

We predict this will become a trend in the coming years.
