Spitting in Baseball

16 posts in this topic

Watching the game tonight, and see a shot of Gardy sitting in the dugout, arms crossed looking quite relaxed, and spitting. He doesn't chew, except for gum. So that got me wondering, do you suppose when he sits at home in the Lazyboy watching Dancing with the Stars, he spits for no appearant reason? wink

I think the worst though was Garza. That guy spit so much, MY mouth would get dry just watching it.

All I'm saying is that I thought it kinda funny, the visual of Gardy, or any player for that matter, sitting at home with the family, TV on, and every so often, "Pftp", a little spit comes shooting out, and the wife yelling, "SAVE IT FOR THE GAME, RON!! JEEZ!!!"

Could make for a pretty good SNL skit some day, ya think?

I think it is a disgusting site to be honest with you all. It seems like everytime a camara is on them, they are spitting away, from spit, sunflower seeds, chew juice. It is getting worse and worse and more disgusting. Kinda tough to eat and watch sports people on TV lately.

It really doesn't bother me I guess.....but no one human being spits more than Alfonso Soriano.

If you have a chance...watch him bat sometime....I'll bet he spits every 2 seconds. How can anyone have that much saliva in their mouth...he doesn't chew seeds or tobacco...just plain spit. lol

Garza/s disgusting.

I do think SNL could do a pretty funny skit with it.

I'm thinking the house of representatives. Every time someone stands up at the podium or whatever, spit spit spit.

Cut to a courtroom, judge spit spit spit, attorney spit spit spit, prosecutor spit spit spit, jury, spit spit spit. even right before they give their verdict etc.

Cut to a news anchor, spit spit spit. The weatherman spit spit spit.

They could even do the WSOP, have all the guys spitting, getting their spit on the cards, and having to wipe it off, on the chips... it would be rather hilarious/disgustingly so.

Maybe just have Garza, in each. Have him lose his job as a pitcher, and he's auditioning for various other jobs. Announcer, poker player, golfer, congressman etc. Can you see him on the first tee at the Masters, spitting 3 or 4 times between back swings. Lining up his putt, and spitting continuously. Picking up the trophy/check and spitting. Getting spit on everything... including the green jacket.

I think the cup adjustment is worse than the spitting. Big series with my Tigers starts tonight. Watch Cabrerra. Doesn't matter if he's at bat or in the field.

Good luck, Twins, but I have to pull for my Tigers.

    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
