Lol...

 

bizarre tweet but stoolies are all boston based so it checks out. 

i watched the interview with the kid who caught it. it bounced off the bullpen and then landed in an aisle. this kid grabbed it and just laid down to hold on. he’s some dweeby little kid who’s literally crying in the interview because he’s about to meet Judge.

in terms of value, I don’t think this ball has a ton. The 62nd ball will be the big ticket item, probably worth several million (McGwire’s was worth $3m from what I remember.) 

The Big Mac story was always a funny one. The fan after the game wanted to give the ball to Big Mac in exchange for meeting him and getting a signed baseball in return. But McGwire was a total loser, didn’t like meeting fans, refused outright and the fan went home and listed it on a sports auction the next day. Made $3m, thanks Mac.

3 million? That's wild, that's a much better deal than meeting a guy and getting a signed ball lol..... Also Googled that and turns out Todd McFarlane, the guy who created Spawn, paid for that ball and it's only worth 250k-400k now. What a loss woof...

tanked in value because no baseball fan actually considers that a legitimate record any more since he was taking enough steroids to kill a horse when it happened. 

that’s why Judge’s 62 will be worth such an obscene amount of money. It’ll be the untainted record and it’s hard to imagine it’ll be beat any time soon.

Judge won't get the "official" season record, but he doesn't have to...his achievement will be celebrated like it's the real deal because the other guys who "broke" Maris' mark are so tainted that they can't even get into the Hall of Fame.  When Judge does break it, I'll consider it as official as it can be myself.

If nothing else, greatest audition for next year’s contract in sports history?

MacKinnon's was pretty fvcking great.  Not saying it was better but I'm sure Nate had a helluva summer.

Yup. But he didn’t break any records. 

Highest paid NHLer!

But yes, you're right.  He won a championship though.  Would have been something if he got himself a Conn Smythe too.  I wonder if that would have tacked on an extra $0.2m/yr.

The NHL equivalent would be like Gaudreau (potential UFA, not RFA) broke one of Gretzky's records in an MVP season this year. There's really nothing else like it in sports. Judge is having the best season of any baseball player in any of our lifetimes.

In case anyone wants to get caught up, here's all 60 homers in a one minute video. 

The most effortless swing I've ever seen in my life.

Two things to look for: first -- he uses the whole field. Every hitter is going to have a pull tendency but he sends plenty to dead center and plenty to right field. 

Second: he doesn't have a "hot" zone. Look at where the ball is going. Up, down, inside, outside, it doesn't matter -- he's demolishing it.

Right,  if you discount the steroid home run records (and clearly most people, including Hall of Fame voters, do that), this is THE RECORD, the one nobody ever thought would be broken by anyone. And he's doing it in a walk year. 

It will be so satisfying if he does this and then signs somewhere other than the Yankees as a free agent.

ok google how can i delete a post

 

ironically enough I think this season is going to force the yankees hand in the other direction. There's no way the Steinbrunners can look at their fanbase and move on from Judge -- in ticket sales and marketing alone that would be a ludicrous move.

Well yeah, that’s why I’m rooting for it!

Obviously it can’t happen. Franchise with tons of money and the best player in the league, you have to find some way to make that happen. That way will be ginormous checks.

i've just been poked in my DMs for being inactive lately lol which is true. So here's a little something slightly hockey related / update and also punk rock related, i believe a few people here are into that.

I think i mentioned this before but i'm designing merch for NOFX and Lagwagon, 2 of my all time fav bands and they were both touring in Quebec last week, so i went on a trip to see them in both MTL and Quebec. Got to hangout and catch up a bit with them

But the hockey related thing is that NOFX wanted me to design a Montreal exclusive limited edition poster for them. So i decided to do a drunk/high Youppi lol It sold out pretty quick lol I also did the Lagwagon tour poster which was a spoof of the Animal House poster. Got both signed by the bands, good times.image.thumb.jpeg.2d3eec84bbc4f5b8664324b8e5df0f30.jpeg301176960_10166754664765300_3148802995779529270_n.thumb.jpg.f6e648e673c0a866ca8d7c57f16742ae.jpg302528274_10166754663715300_3133681073506701856_n.thumb.jpg.2bf77efffb0e692cbceb8ac001a13fcf.jpg305035676_10166740576985300_7038636588585294124_n.thumb.jpg.1f508c9f72263bde2a2649a9b013f931.jpgimage.png.200482b1548eb84f2878811c96cc566f.pngimage.thumb.jpeg.28f74b5dbc722d85cf46a68c864dfa8b.jpeg

I don't know if you watched the NOFX Backstage Passport tv show. If you did you saw and know who Kent is lol  their manager lol he's hilarious in the show but he's also fvcking hilarious in real life too. Got to hang a bit with him a few months ago and saw him again last week, he came to the Lagwagon show with his wife and then for the NOFX shows. Terrific dude.
