Glad the Riley Cooper thing is over. Oh wait, what?

How Far Do Americans Live From Their Sports Teams?

Sorry to say it, but I stopped reading at "Midcoast Maine". It's a personality flaw and I'm working on it.

Mr. Happy Hands teaches two women a lesson about watching a game with your eyes and not with your goddamn phones!

Goddamn it, grum, those gifs made me laugh so hard I woke my goddamn family up! LOL (indeed)

That second GIF almost looks like he did it on purpose...either way, it's one of the worst cases of alcohol abuse I've seen in a while...

Those GIFs were great. I love the ones where you're about three cycles in before you notice what the funniest bit is! I was looking at the second one thinking "aww cool, she got her phone back - that baseball player is nice", and finally I spotted Mr Happy Hands. Brilliant.

My take on the second GIF is that the guy in the blue 'Red Sox' shirt got really tired of listening to the gal behind him yapping on her 'phone all through the game, and finally got his chance to really shut her up and soak the 'phone at the same time. I had the game on TV, saw the play, several replays, and never did spot the great suds attack. Wonderful stuff, grum.
