Missing The Bigger Story...


As many of you know, historic Yankee Stadium hosted its last ever baseball game Sunday night. I saw THIS article on the internets and it struck me that there is something much bigger going on than some final game in some baseball stadium. Somewhere out there is a baseball that can talk!

Read the headline again. I want to know who is in possession of this talking baseball. Whoever they are, they're gonna be a fucking millionaire! I mean, shit, I think it's pretty amazing when a bird can talk, but an inanimate object? That's incredible! I wonder if the talking baseball has representation yet. It needs to have its own act in Vegas at a minimum - maybe its own reality show.

I wonder how big its vocabulary is. Can it say more than "goodbye"? Can it carry on a conversation or just mimic what its owner says? As usual, the media in this country is asleep at the wheel. I haven't heard word one about this shit. Seriously, a talking baseball is WAY bigger than some economic crisis or presidential campaign.

Of course, it could be a baseball that's like one of those dolls where you pull the string and it says something, in which case I'd look pretty fucking stupid.

It ain't bigger than TBY. That's all I know.

Also, when Yankee Stadium retired, did the PA system echo a lot like during the Lou Gehrig farewell speech?

Did anyone see a transcript of what Yankee Stadium said? Bet it was cool, like WTF people? Why tear me down?!?

I think the ball only sings the second verse of that " Hello my baby, hello my honey" song that fucking frog sings.

There was that movie from a couple years about about the talking baseball and stuff...I thought it was fictional...until I read this.

When a baseball talks in the forest, does anyone hear it?

It must be that ball they always show on the Jumbotron, who screams when someone hits a home run.

You really have a nose for news.

It looks like what you are saying is baseballs are not what they seam.

First of all, you really shouldn't pay attention to anything the ball says, because he's "juiced." Second? He was the byproduct of this unholy union.
