SOMEWHERE AWESOME — There hasn’t been a ribbon cutting ceremony yet for TTBB’s Scorpion Jacket Hall of Excellence…and there never will be. Some of you may already be aware of TTBB’s SJHOE as it has 4 members already but for those of you who are new, let me explain. If a Twins player has a remarkable game in the field, on the mound, or at the plate, and his performance is deemed worthy by the committee, he is given the prestigious Scorpion jacket from the movie Drive. This jacket is only given to those who truly deserve it. After Mel Gibson slaughtered men at Fort Wilderness in the movie “The Patriot” he was given this jacket. It is also rumored that Bruce Chen has the jacket actually tattooed allover his upper body.
Anyways, it is my pleasure to announce the newest addition to the Scorpion Jacket Hall of Excellence…Glen Perkins. Glen should have been given this award during the Angels series when he struck out Albert Pujols with slider making one of the all time greats look like a damn fool. Unfortunately the Hall wasn’t built yet so Mr. Perkins had to prove his worthiness against the Red Sox. He entered in the top of the 8th inning and struck out the side…and no small side. He K’d Adrian Gonzalez, David Ortiz, and Kevin Funnybattingstance. What used to be known around these parts as a “Snapper mow’em down inning” has earned Glen a spot in sports immorality. Well the site of immorality and a place in immortality.
Congrats Mr. Perkins for pretty much killing it.
As this list of prestige and honor grows, their photoshopbusts will be added to the special page found here or by clicking on the menubar where it says “TTBB’s Scorpion Jacket Hall of Excellence”.
