BASEBALL: Click The Link

I cannot do this justice with words. Just click the link. But consider yourself warned that I am not responsible for what you will see.

It reminds me of a few album covers from the psychedelic era, with cheesiness (fishiness?)substituted for artisitic/chemical inspiration.

Crank,

I didn't heed your warning, and now I am permanently scarred. I can understand some cheesy artist designing it, but I can't understand a MLB team actually choosing it for their ballpark. Someone should be fired. Unless the fan base is my 8-month-old daughter, no one is going to find that appealing.

My first 2 thoughts, apart from the psychedelic era, were:

(1) a graphic from a Monty Python movie

(2) the ending picture from Sesame Street's pinball counting song:

Sound like the Ozzie Guillan show is in full swing already.

Eh. In time, it will be as beloved in Miami as the Mets' Apple is in NY. Or, would be as beloved, if Miami were a baseball town, which it isn't.

Good comparison MVH. I hadn't thought of the Sesame Street pinball. On the other hand, it made me think of Montgomery Burns' casino from the $pringfield episode of "The Simpsons."

There is only one word that came to mind -- contraction.

hey crank, any post coming on the Democrat mayors ordering beatdowns of occupy protestors, the occupy protestors being a mix of good intentions with bad execution, the occupy protestors raping women or shouting anti-semitic chants, or other occupy shenanigans? I like the idea fo breaking up the too big to fail banks and winding down assets/writing down debt, but the messangers are hurting the message.
