Prepare yourselves for the Todd Coffey showcase

Sadly, not a variety show:


It sounds so festive. I’m picturing this:

Mixed with this:


If they do that, I’d advocate for signing Coffey to a three-year, $39 million deal.

    Popcorn? Check.

    Lowenbrau Oktoberfest dark special? Check.

    Chocolate covered acai berries? Check.

    Good book? Check – in this case, Richard Meltzer’s The Aesthetics of Rock.

    TV turned orf? Check. No way I’m going to be put to sleep in the middle of the day by that crock of as yet unmineralized coprolite.

    The key question now is: which has more remaining velocity, his fastball or his sprint from the bullpen to the mound?

      He can sprint???

    My coolest experience at an MLB game was during a disastrous Brewers game.

    Todd Coffey sprints in from the OF bullpen and does his pop up slide at the mound. Quite the sight of a man that big sprinting into a pop up slide. He pitched a shutout 8th.

    This led up to Trevor Hoffman entering in the 9th, Hells Bells just blaring, every fan on their feet.

    Coolest experience ever.

    Until Hoffman blew the save, that is. lol

      Coffey is well-known for the bullpen sprint, but isn’t Heath Bell the one who does the pop-up slide? I don’t remember Coffey trying that. But he gets bonus points for being one of the rare non-closers who comes out to his own theme music (used the Ultimate Warrior’s old WWF music).

    What is going through the heads of the Bradys:

    Mike – gotta pay for the time share somehow
    Marcia – You like me! You STILL like me!
    Bobby – No, this is my natural hair color, it was dyed on the show
    Carol – this is the face that can sell a Million units for Sunbeam
    Greg – Hey, Foxy Ladies!
    Peter – Laugh all you want, mo-fo’s! In 30 years, I’ll have the hottest wife ever
    Cindy – I-i-i-i-i-i-…I have become, comfortably numb
    Jan – My God, they have no idea I am not the real Jan
