Shocking update on the Jhonny Peralta clam chowder saga

Mar 12, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta missed yesterday’s game when he had an allergic reaction to clam chowder after eating the soup without knowing what it was. He was ambushed, really.

This is the type of story you don’t just give up on covering, obviously, so Jason Beck of has an update:

Life in an MLB clubhouse is a lot more exciting than I imagined, assuming you’re really into soup.

    Soup? What is wrong with wings and hot dogs?

      Did you mean beer and fried chicken?

        Wrong clubhouse. It’s soup and good luck cakes in the D.

    Someone tell Peralta no soup for you.

      Someone should also tell him to spell is name correctly or start pronouncing it correctly as J-Honny.

    The shortstop was angry that day my friends. Like an old man trying to send back soup at a deli.

    So its some sort of potato soup? That’s the Daily Dose of Tiger’s Awesomeness? Let me know when they publish the recipe to that “Tiger’s Soup of Awesome”. I’ll have to try it and see if its better than clover, raspberry canes, bark, leaves, the twigs of aspen and willow trees, all sorts of grasses and, the fave, water lily. I somehow doubt it.

      Please don’t belittle the great CCS (Clam Chowder Saga) of 2013. If it were you making repeated emergency runs to the throne room, you wouldn’t laugh so much, would you? Would you? Especially since, as the recent installments of HBT Real Estate have shown, these fellas potentially have to cover hundreds of square footage to reach the nearest facilities. It’s a powerfully hard way to practice your dash, I mean.

      And, on that note, thank you, Aaron, for today’s daily dose of Tigers “awesomeness.” <3

        So it IS potato soup, then? Man. Soup. That’s weak sauce.

    I blame the Tigers for not clearly labeling their clubhouse soups

    All I can think of is this:

    Reminds me of Dumb and Dumber…

    Lloyd Christmas: Excuse me, Flo?!!
    Flo: (sarcastic) Yes…
    Lloyd: Um, whats the Soup Du Jour?
    Flo: Its the soup of the day…
    Lloyd: Mmmmmm, that sounds good. I’ll have that.

    Soup is for 80 year old great grand mothers!

    Last year it was “si or no? Si motherf*cker” this year it’s “no shoup for you”

    Seriously though, if you can’t notice the clams floating in your potato soup, nor the clam flavor permeating it then maybe you deserve the allergic reaction.
