"I'm pretty happy right now."

MLB.com has a nice, brief article on the Original Mr. Blow Pop, Eric O'Flaherty. Do you know what clicked while I was driving to work this morning? That O'Flaherty's intro song is the same song Papelbon danced to in his underpants...



Y'all know I love relief pitchers, but this? This is insane. Pap is crazy. :D

...Can we get our closer to dance in his undies on the field? What are the odds that would EVER happen? ;)

Lauren, I'm not sure your blog could handle the level of traffic if Gonzo appeared in a video dancing in his underwear. We'd all go crazy (not to mention watch over and over and over and over...! :)

Jen said...

I <3 Paps. He's too funny.

Mental image for the rest of the day - Gonzo dancing in his underwear. There goes my work productivity. :D

If our closer danced in his drawers on the field, the dance would be far more sexy and so would the image.

Jessica-

the mere thought... :D

CABravesFan said...

Oh, and I love how the article calls Eric "Bobby's main lefty out of the pen other then Mike GOnzalez"...umm, he's our only lefty other then Mikey!
(and I will now go back to my regularly scheduled daydreaming about Gonzo dancing in his underwear)

Amy said...

I like Pap, too - he's crazy, but the fun sort. ;)

Unrelated, but Gonzo's spot on 96.1 makes me giggle. "Hi, this is Michael Gonzalez, and the Braves are part of the Project."

Jen said...

Amy - I just heard Gonzo's radio spot, too. I imagined him saying it in his underwear. :)

Lauren T. said...

I enjoyed Baby's spot earlier in the game, too. He sounds so bashful!

CABravesFan said...

Michael?!? He is sooo not a Michael! (I know his parents call him that but they are his parents!)

Amy said...

Jen - I don't think I'd hear a word he said in that case.

I like Pete's spot, too, though he was talking so fast it was hard to catch the first time.

Lauren T. said...

I had a little bit of a hard time with Pete's, too. "This is Pay-uh Moylun..." It took me a sec to figure out who "Pay-uh" was! haha

Speaking of Papelbon... he's insane. I really do love him.

Amy said...

Okay, that picture almost resulted in me baptizing my computer with Mountain Dew. :P

Also, Don Sutton was saying a minute ago how nobody in the dugout is cheering harder for the offense today than DLowe, and went on to say he might have some pom-poms... I'd pay to see that.

Amanda said...

LOL @ the number of comments on this. I'm not even going to say anything, everyone else has already said it!

Jen said...

Wow, that pic is awesome! LOL!

For you radio listeners, am I the only one who giggles at Don Sutton's discussions about white socks and loafers?

Lauren T. said...

I missed that discussion, but I did like how earlier, he was trying to say "O'Flaherty" in an Irish accent and "Moylan" in an Australian accent. It...didn't work. Heh.

Amy, high-five for Dew! I would drink nothing else if that was a healthy option. :D

Gonzo's undie dance would be more like a rumba. And the blog would probably melt down.

CABravesFan said...

flbravesgirl-

Gonzo's undie dance would be more like porn...and the blog would probably be banned :)

flbravesgirl said...

Well, the rumba is very steamy. All those slow hip swivels. Suits him well, IMO.

CABravesFan said...

you just had to go with the "slow hip swivels"...happy dreams for me tonight :)

Kolbi said...

Hee hee! I lived in Boston during Papelbon's "Shipping Up to Boston" dance. :) Just so long as they don't ship O'Flaherty anywhere! I like him. :)

Jen said...

Did someone just use Gonzo and porn in the same sentence? I'm not usually in to that type of thing, but... :D

CABravesFan said...

Jen-

blame flbravesgirl...she put the thought there with her "gonzo doing the rumba" thing :)

flbravesgirl said...

Uh-uh! Not my fault. The rumba is a perfectly legitimate Latin dance. Don't you watch Dancing with the Stars?

CABravesFan said...

flbrvesgirl-

totally your fault! There is a big difference between Dancing with the Stars doing the rumba and Gonzo oing the rumba in his undies and you know it :)!!!!

flbravesgirl said...

The next question of course is: what kind of undies?

CABravesFan said...

Boxer Briefs...definitely boxer briefs :)

flbravesgirl said...

I knew you'd be all over that.

CABravesFan said...

like you've never thought about it! :)
