    The things we do for pretty women.

      Y’all are suckers.

        It really is some sort of miracle you ladies haven’t taken over the world yet…

      • losangelesfan - Dec 10, 2013 at 1:48 PM

        Go bake a cake.

      • historiophiliac - Dec 10, 2013 at 1:55 PM

        Oh, except be polite. Apparently, *that* you won’t do. All right, go on with your bitter lame self.

      He married above his station.

      • bigharold - Dec 10, 2013 at 4:33 PM

        Intelligent men usually do, .. he just got lucky.

        Really rockin that Ron Burgundy look!!!

        I believer the term is “over-chicked.”

  2. buddysguys - Dec 10, 2013 at 12:35 PM

    what a chump

  3. pisano - Dec 10, 2013 at 12:37 PM

    Geek !

  4. ejheim62 - Dec 10, 2013 at 12:43 PM

    you can call him a geek and a chump….but he’s got a sense of humor, apparently; a babe for a wife and is making millions. We should all be so lucky!

    • yahmule - Dec 10, 2013 at 12:55 PM

      Actually, I think geek and chump are more appropriate and less insulting than calling him lucky. Are you implying he just fell backwards into success?

      • ejheim62 - Dec 10, 2013 at 1:01 PM

        no, I meant WE should be that lucky in life as to have talent, tons of money, and a hot wife. That better? Never meant to imply that he was lucky and not just good…

    • tuberippin - Dec 10, 2013 at 8:08 PM

      “…a babe for a wife and is making millions”

      pretty sure the two are related.

  5. stackers1 - Dec 10, 2013 at 12:45 PM

    Biggest douche in baseball. Just my opinion.

    • clydeserra - Dec 10, 2013 at 12:53 PM

      he may be, but that is a sweet get up and stash

      • Jason @ IIATMS - Dec 10, 2013 at 1:02 PM

        seconded, clydeserra

    When I read the thread title I thought maybe it would be a picture of him with his mouth closed.

    • bigharold - Dec 10, 2013 at 11:26 PM

      “.. maybe it would be a picture of him with his mouth closed.’

      Yeah, right.

  7. thebadguyswon - Dec 10, 2013 at 12:59 PM

    Awesome stache.

  8. rips08 - Dec 10, 2013 at 1:08 PM

    Is it just me or does he look a lot like Jeff Kent in this picture?

    • thepoolshark - Dec 10, 2013 at 4:13 PM

      Ron Burgandy

  9. tanzkommandant - Dec 10, 2013 at 1:33 PM

    She looks worn out, overly tanned & older than her age. What is this nonsense about her being a babe?

    • mrhojorisin - Dec 10, 2013 at 2:27 PM

      I agree. I think most guys just look at her chest or have married unattractive women. This girl isn’t bad looking but I wouldn’t trade my wife for her.

      • mrhojorisin - Dec 10, 2013 at 2:32 PM

        BTW, looks like the both of them are just having fun. Good for them not taking themselves too seriously.

      • yahmule - Dec 10, 2013 at 2:47 PM

        Pictures or it didn’t happen.

        Don’t try anything clever, either.

    Richie Cunningham called. He wants his look and sweater back

  11. ptfu - Dec 10, 2013 at 1:52 PM

    Arrrggghhh, my eyes!

  12. baldeagle22 - Dec 10, 2013 at 2:22 PM

    I was really hoping to open this page and see Pap in a Yankees uniform (or one of the other uniforms he’s never worn….)

  13. aphillieated - Dec 10, 2013 at 2:27 PM

    She’s alright.

  14. blynch67 - Dec 10, 2013 at 6:29 PM

    “Nice Rack”

  15. woahtoya - Dec 11, 2013 at 12:09 AM

    Apparently no one on Hardball Talk knows what an ugly sweater party is.
