Well, it’s Ping Pong Ball day in the NBA- where franchises have the chance to rise from the ashes of mediocrity in one fell swoop of David Stern’s hand, but I’d like to focus on something with a touch more importance.
If you haven’t done it already I strongly recommend that you check out PeeYourPantsForTheBrewers.com, a site that encourages all fans of the Crew to join together in urination if, and when, the Brewers clinch the NL Central title this season. It is easily the funniest baseball-related thing I have seen all season. Maybe the funniest ever. I can’t say what would possess people to want to pee their pants in elation, but apparently Brewer fans are just a different breed of people.
The site’s introductory paragraph says it all: “I have never seen a full Brewers season where they make the playoffs. Born in July 1982, I missed that amazing World Series run. It’s been a long 24 years- the longest playoff drought in baseball. With a young team of quality stars and shrewd management, we’re boldly making our move. I get so excited thinking about the Brewers now, a little pee comes out. In fact, when the Brewers make the playoffs I will pee my pants.”
Already 4,822 people have made the pledge to celebrate the Brewers in unison. You, too, could join their ranks, if you’re a Milwaukee fan who is unperturbed by wet, filthy, unsanitary pants, just by going to PeeYourPantsForTheBrewers.com and filling out the registry.
