Chris Denorfia made a redonkulous catch

Actually, the run Chris Denorfia made to get that would-be home run off the bat of Raul Ibanez in yesterday’s Padres-Phillies game was even more impressive than the catch was.

Either way, pretty tough stuff.

    What was even better was hearing ye applause of the crowd. It’s like Cliff Lee said, greatest games everrr

    Hats off to Denorfia on that one. I had to rewind it and show everyone, including the dog and cat. Kinda like Ryan Howard coming in to pinch hit after being “given a break” by Charlie. First pitch bomb. It’s the stuff legends are made of..

    Dictionary.com spells it “ridonculous”
    Who knew that the pigeon in the movie “Bolt” would have such an effect on our nation’s lexicon?…

      I always used the “Redunkulous” spelling myself.

        Thought you were only allowed to use that spelling referring to basketball.

    Redonkulous?? Did your 90’s lingo float to the top in that flood you had over the weekend? :)

    What’s more amazing is he came in as a late substitute for Maybin who got hurt earlier in the game.

    Yeah Craig- I’m kind of disappointed that you’re using the same verbal garbage that moron Stuart Scott uses.

    Perfect angle on the catch; he had the wall in his peripheral vision all the way. Allowed him to track the ball and know how far he had till he cratered the wall. Nice.

    The real takeaway from this posting is that there needs to be a standardized spelling of ridonculous/redonkulous/redunkulous.
    Priorities, people!
