A Week Of Customs: Calling Dr. Funk

Another week’s worth of customs which were originally out on Twitter (#DailyTSRcustom)

The Cubs recently claimed Wade Miley on waivers, and since he threw a no-hitter and won 12 games in 2021, it could be a salary dump on the part of the Reds… or maybe a wager that he won’t be able to duplicate it in 2022.

This custom displeases me a little… I wish I’d either did a better job on the bill of Miley’s cap, or did it as an intentionally-not-great fake airbrushing job.

Alex Ovechkin was named the NHL’s 1st Star for the week of 11/8 – 11/14.  During that week Ovi had 2 goals and 6 assists and moved past Brett Hull into the 4th spot in career goals.

True confessions: Ovechkin gets an uninteresting head shot because I don’t like him.

Gabe Kapler guided the Giants to a franchise-best 107 wins and was named 2021 NL Manager of the Year (and yes, he knows where the team logo is)

The Rays won 100 games for the first time in franchise history and Kevin Cash was named the 2021 AL Manager of the Year.

I saw Lance Reddick on an episode of Young Sheldon, thought of everything he’s been in – John Wick, Fringe, The Wire, Lost, The Blacklist, etc. – and I decided he’s deserving of a TSR Random custom (free on boxes of Shlabotnik’s Snack Cakes!)

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a series of customs featuring those actors who you see in a show and think “Hey, it’s the guy from… Oh… Damn, where have I seen him before?” This may or may not kick off that series.

Another Seattle Kraken… Jeremy Lauzon was drafted from the Bruins and has played in nearly every game this season.

Writing the text for some of these players is turning out to be harder than I thought. A bunch of these guys on the Kraken can be summed up as “Well, he’s shown promise but hadn’t accomplished enough to be protected in an expansion draft”.

Vince Guaraldi achieved much of his fame for two things: 1) His Grammy-winning 1963 song “Cast Your Fate To The Wind” and 2) His scores for the Peanuts specials up through 1976. This song falls into neither category, but the title caught my attention.

  1. Yeah, as a big fan of Fringe it was nice to see Broyles show up on Young Sheldon. He’s quite a good actor.

    I had no idea Ovechkin had gotten so grey!
