“Written in the stars ….”

Oct 12, 2011, 3:03 PM EDT

I was getting tired of the those “Legends are born in October” ads, but MLB finally came out with one that really speaks to me.

    This is awesome.

      Take THAT, football.

    That squirrel played harder than the Phillies.

      He has more pride :-)

    Squirrels are disease carrying pains in the ass. They sit there in their little trees, eating tree nuts, acting all cool. I say, screw them….every last one of those little marmot bastards.

      “Nice marmot.”

      • drmonkeyarmy - Oct 12, 2011 at 3:31 PM

        I was thinking of that line as I typed it.

      drmonkeyarmy,
      You are correct. Squirrels are just rats with prettier tails. I have taken to having a pouch on my golf bag filled with peanuts so the little SOBs will quit chewing into my golf bag to get granola bars. It is like paying criminals not to commit crimes.

        Please see below. It’s true, they do take payment to leave your stuff alone. They remind me of the Mafia and their “protection”. You don’t happen to live in NJ do you?

      My dog would agree with you 100%.

      Lil Tony Squirrel don’t care what any of you say. He knows he’s a genius, not just any squirrel/rat with a nicer tail. Did you see the moves on Lil Tony? Some wheels, eh? Yeah, he was gritty. Ayup…he was a rodent.

      Then you, my friend, have never met a squirrel that roams the Penn State campus. They are exceptionally large and want to be your friend. They also like when you feed them people food.

    I’m pretty sure this is the best promotional material MLB has ever produced.

    • drmonkeyarmy - Oct 12, 2011 at 3:36 PM

      You mean this was better than they stuff centered around Brian Wilson’s beard?

      • singingfriar - Oct 12, 2011 at 3:42 PM

        “There’s only one OCTOBER!”

  5. Jonny 5 - Oct 12, 2011 at 3:40 PM

    Somehow that squirrel is a pawn of TLR’s. Damn him! Damn him and his Squirrel minion!!!!! I am now breaking the NJ squirrel treaty that was introduced in 2008. Yes, the treaty which states I will feed the little bastards if they cease to chew holes in my trash cans, shed, gasoline containers, etc….. I will now switch to defcon 4 mode at my residence, and all interlopers of the species seen chewing anything will be shot on sight. Shock and awe baby…..

      My brother employs his 18 year old son, an air pellet gun and a two dollar bounty on ever squirrel that hits the turf in his yard. Last year they had to have about $700 worth of wiring re-done to a trailer, the garage, and assorted tools and equipment thanks to squirrels.

      This season he’s out about 8 bucks and The Boy is known as “Dead Eye”…FYI The Boy reports that he’s willing to help you out providing you pay his air fare and feed him. If you know any 18 year old girls that would like to meet a guy named “Dead Eye” he’d pay you.

      • Jonny 5 - Oct 12, 2011 at 8:47 PM

        LOL! Naaaa, I’ll pass on that one. I think I might just leave them alone for now. (I think one reads the blog. When I got home there was a diagram with a picture of me being dragged from my bed by what appears to be a gang of squirrels next showing me tied to an oak tree all Gulliver style when the little people got him. It was very sloppy with little paw prints on it.) Anyway, I hear a faint scratching sound outside, I’m scared……

    Who knew that network execs had senses of humor?

  7. thefalcon123 - Oct 12, 2011 at 4:11 PM

    Seriously, enough of this squirrel shit. If a bear had run across the field, it would have been amazing and worthy of this much attention. But it’s a squirrel. They’re everywhere. Move on.

    The song MLB is using for their ads is my ringtone.

    ENOUGH with the squirrel!
