Smokey Things and Santa Hats

Beer, babies in slings, and pop culture drive our Twins BF picks, while Pottymouth smartly sticks with a forever BF on the Nationals and Patti goes against type and all in on New Guy. There's crosstraining with cover-ups and COVID, and we say drag queens, 420, “that hair stays in town,” and use “Max Scherzer” as a verb.

NCiB is 100% Boosted! A photo of Pottymouth’s Twins BF pick, Mitch Garver, drinking a beer while wearing his baby in a sling, has us waxing nostalgic and digging for similar photos from our own collections, while Brent Rooker’s Twitter feed is like a visit to the pop culture aisle in Patti’s brain. Showing her excellent judgment, Pottymouth sticks with Juan Soto as her forever BF when we get to the Nationals, while Patti goes hard against type with end of season breakout star Lane Thomas, son of a professional drag racer.

Yasiel Puig and WFT owner Daniel Snyder lead us to cross-train with sexual abuse/harrassment cover-ups. The Mets hope that Buck Showalter, older than dirt in baseball years, will bring some stability. Congrats to some of our favorite women in baseball, Paloma Benach, named a captain of her high school baseball team, and Justine Segal, back to Mexico to coach in the LMP, and to run baseball clinics for girls. Hard to tell if Pottymouth is more excited about women’s baseball returning to Japan, former BF Ildelmaro Vargas breaking the LVBP record for hits in consecutive games by a Venezuelan and signing a minor league contract with the Cubs, or her Leones playoff chances in LIDOM. One final bit of cross training as we look at the impact of COVID on both the NHL and NFL.

We say drag queens, 420, “that hair stays in town,” and use “Max Scherzer” as a verb.
