'09 Souvenir Program

There are clearly thousands of things to discuss with this album, but I need to focus on the "best friend in baseball" question for a moment.

Chipper's BFIB: Baby
Frenchy's BFIB: Baby
Baby's BFIB: Eddie Perez
Eddie Perez's BFIB: Javy Lopez

What a mess of a love triangle, y'all.

Glavine's BFIB: John Smoltz
Huddy's BFIB: Pete Orr!


KJ's BFIB: Blaine, Adam Wainright, Langy, and Pete Orr!

What a fun circle of friends!

Blaine's BFIB: Adam Wainright
Charlie's BFIB: Chuck James and Jo-Jo
Jo-Jo's BFIB: Charlie!

Aww, how sweet. (I still don't like Jo-Jo.)

New Javy's BFIB: Alex Cintron
O'Flaherty's BFIB: Mark Lowe
Jeff Bennett's BFIB: Mike Johnston
Infante's BFIB: Andres Torres

Don't know who any of these BFFs are. :/

Gregor's BFIB: Jose Reyes

Wow, really? Cool!

And Jair's best friend in baseball is... "Everyone". I actually believe that!

Moving on... seriously, Gonzo has a "teacup Pomeranian-Poodle mix named Foxy"? GAAAAAAAY. (Except, he's clearly NOT gay, so I don't know what to make of this!)


Amanda said...

Hahahaahaha those are great! We're going to the game tonight, gonna have to pick up one of these.

I'm surprised that with all the people Chipper knows in baseball and with the age difference that he said Baby Heap, I would've guessed Andruw or somebody. I also like how Baby Heap didn't want to choose between Frenchy and Chipper (or whoever) so he went the safe route with Eddie P. Smart man!

Uh Gonzo first the Gucci luggage and now a little lap dog? It's a good thing you're so darn hot...

CABravesFan said...

Really Gonzo? That's NOT A DOG!! (of course girls loooove the big sexy guy walking the tiny puff ball disgusied as a dog...and the fact that he named it Foxy- great name, by the way! My last name is Fox:D- is just so him!)

Amanda said...

Oh and THANKS for taking the time to scan those. You are the best!

Lauren T. said...

Amanda, the price on the program has gone down from last year, but the content is better than ever. If I recall correctly, it was $5 (down from $7 last April and $8 last July for vol. 2).

Glad you enjoyed it!

CABravesFan said...

I will also send my thanks to you Lauren- those photos are awesome! I love that Yunie thinks nobody would believe he's humble:) and how much of a Mamma's boy is Gonzo? (so cute) And Mac has a dog named Mindy? What happened to Tyson? I liked Tyson:)

Lauren T. said...

I was wondering about Tyson too! I swear, if I ever interview him, I'm going to ask about the brother dogs and exactly how that all happened.

Jen said...

Gonzo, why do you keep doing this to me? A man purse and a froo-froo yippy dog? I don't think my heart can handle much more of this. I'm with Amanda...good thing you're hot! :)

CABravesFan said...


Just picture those eyes giving that smoldering look to a tiny puff ball that he is holding in his arms...as much as I hate little puff balls, there is something really hot about that:)

Amanda said...

^ And THAT'S why he has one, because he knows he can get away with it. LOL!

Amanda said...

I just had a thought...maybe it's the family pet? Like I'm thinking of my son answering this question and yes he would consider my little dog who lives in the house with us as his pet if asked.

Just trying to help restore the studly image we (used to) have of Gonzo...

Leah said...

I was wondering the same thing about Tyson! Jeff still has Brody, apparently. Hmmm. Someone has to ask him that sometime because it's like that poor dog disappeared off the face of the earth. :(

Love the pictures in the program this year! I think they get better (and hotter) each year. Too bad they can't take SportSouth's lead and do a shirtless photoshoot with them or at least like those firemen calendar shoots. He he. 0:D Ok, maybe not with all of the guys in the shoot. That's like never seeing any of the guys shirtless/in a towel (KJ is the exception here) on camera/tv, but Chino gets his time on there with a towel that barely covers half of him. *bleh*

I said the same thing about Gonzo, but then was like, "no, he definitely can't be gay." If Gonzo is gay, that would seriously shock me. He looks too "bad boyish" to be gay, on and off the field. But there are guys that get smaller dogs because the chicks dig it or they prefer small dogs, such as McFrenchy's dogs.

Jen said...

CA -

Point well taken. And if Gonzo is giving me a smoldering look, I guarantee I'm not paying attention to the dog. ;)

Amanda -

I, too, thought about the family pet thing. That would make sense. Besides, who else would take care of his dog while he's on road trips? I think I'm going to stick with this theory. Though if he does need a dog-sitter, I would be more than happy to volunteer for the job. :)

CABravesFan said...

This is why Gonzo needs the man purse ladies! He puts the tiny little dog-like thing in there and takes it with him on road trips. You can't put tiny little dog-like things in suitcases, you need man bags!

Jen said...

LOL! I don't know if it makes me feel better or worse that his man bag might be used to carry a tiny yippy dog a la Paris Hilton. How about a small, but manly, duffel bag instead?

CABravesFan said...

No duffel bags because Foxy's puffiness might cause it to get caught in the zipper and Foxy would end up looking like Mac.
(and for the record, my 3:07 marks the 2nd time in less then a week that I was forced to delete my original thoughts because they were wondering off into the truly inappropriate:D)

Lauren T. said...

Hmmm, somehow my earlier comment didn't register. If I can ever get my video editor working on my home computer, there's a topless Frenchy interview that's just dying to get posted. ;)

One of these days we're going to end up with a topless Baby interview, and this blog is going to explode. :D

CA, notice the rules prohibit excessive cussin', but not excessive drool. Post away! Heh heh.

flbravesgirl said...

Oooo! Thanks, Lauren! Somebody did a great job on the photography, very cool look. One of the best pics of Frenchy I've seen.

CA, the Pomeranian I know is also named Foxy. Too bad she's not the same one, huh?

CABravesFan said...

What is it with Pomeranian's named Foxy?? Can't someone give a real dog that name? That was my nickname in high school...soo do not want people to think of me as a puff of fur trying to pass itself off as a dog!
