in honor of the start of baseball season
Just thought I'd remind baseball fans of the hierarchy of suckiness. That is, how to jeer appropriately when hitters are having a multiple-strikeout day.THREE
strikeouts in one game is a hat trick.FOUR
strikeouts in one game is a silver sombrero.FIVE
strikeouts in one game makes you a papal knight (because only the Pope can help you).SIX
strikeouts in one game gets you a toe plate in your locker, because you might as well be a pitcher.
I was reminded of these by Giants announcers Kruk and Kuip, the best local broadcasting team in the business.
