…Because “Sundry Sunday” sounds a hell of a lot better than “I only made two new customs this week and the rest are customs I’ve been meaning to share for varying amounts of time”.
I just came up with “Sundry Sunday”, but I quite like it. Must keep this in mind…
Last night, Keegan-Michael Key threw out the first pitch at the Dodgers game. He’s been doing the talk show circuit to promote the new movie “Don’t Think Twice” – which I think I’ll have to check out because the cast features several people I like, plus it’s gotten good reviews.
Key is possibly best known as half of Key & Peele… And I created another custom of Heisman winner Jammie Jammie-Jammie, one of my favorite players from Key & Peele’s East/West Collegiate Bowl.
For technical reasons I don’t do embedded videos, but you can check out the 2013 East West Collegiate Bowl here.
This TSRchives custom was built around the photo… it looked so much like a photo from 1973 Topps that I could not resist.
From left to right that’s Michael Conforto, Asdrubal Cabrera and David Wright…. Wright’s presence tells you that this was not a recent photo.
This next photo caught my eye because… OK, I’ll be honest, Morgan Pressel’s skirt caught my eye, because that’s what this skirt was designed to do. Anyway, I stumbled upon it shortly after making a “Faux Set” template for another post, so I figured “What the heck”.
I don’t follow golf at all, so all I can tell you about Morgan Pressel is that she’s an American, she’s currently ranked 30th in the world, and her career earnings are a lot higher than my career earnings.
Proof that Chris Sale is not opposed to throwbacks in general:
Wrapping up with an All-Star custom for Mark Melancon, who was recently traded to the Nationals, a move that left me disappointed and encouraged.
Disappointed: I like Melancon, and I’m not happy that he’s with the Nats now.
Encouraged: I’m starting to wonder if the Nationals front office is a little deficient on understanding the whole “managing people” thing. Last year, Drew Storen was their closer and they picked up Jonathan Papelbon, which did a number on Storen’s confidence and also brought in a guy who would have an (*ahem*) altercation with Face-Of-The-Franchise Bryce Harper. So this year, they’ve decided that changing their closer midseason worked out so well that they’re going to do it again. Good luck with that, guys…. (and by “Good luck with that”, I really mean “Let’s Go Mets!”)
