|Take me out to the ball game
||[Jul. 23rd, 2008|10:15 pm]
Today my team left work early to go to a baseball game. Before you tsk tsk in my general direction, it was a company sponsored event. With food and drinks and everything.|
It was a good game, even though we lost. I wish I had brought my camera, because there was a group of people on the balcony in puma costumes. Not being a good fan of my home team, I didn't get the reference. Someone explained to me that there was a player with the nickname "The Big Puma". And that he choose this nickname for himself, because he didn't like the one other people had given him, which was "Fat Elvis".
Now, I can certainly understand not wanting the nickname "Fat Elvis". But I was disappointed to think I had missed a balcony full of Fat Elvi. (Yes, we decided that the plural of Elvis is Elvi.) And I started imagining how fun it would be if the pumas were in Elvis regalia. And now I think my new favorite garage band name is Fat Puma Elvi.
