Jane Austen / MLB Fan Fiction Crossover
Did you do the reading? We're talking Goldilocks balls today. We've got Pirates and Royals boyfriends, some shortstop closure, and personal affronts. All this plus literary references, customer service tips, and the overwhelming scent of fried. We say, “MC Hammer pants,” “Day 9: the Waning of the Waft,” and “if you were sliding into third base, your cellphone would probably fall out of your pocket too.”
Are we Team Italy now? Our Royals picks point that way. Pottymouth orders the Italian Breakfast (and former flying monkey) Vinnie Pasquantino and Patti selects Nicky Lopez, who is boots on the ground with his community involvement. Our Pirates guys include a Cleveland favorite, Carlos Santana, and a rookie record-breaker in Oneil Cruz. Dansby Swanson to the Cubs is the last of the top tier shortstop free agents deals this go round, and it gives us a chance to talk about Mallory some more. Pottymouth is taking recent Red Sox decisions as a personal affront, and she may be right. In WBC news Team USA announces more arms, Team Italy announces NCiB boyfriends, and we still can’t get tickets for games in Miami. Bradford William Davis and friend of the pod Dr. Meredith Wills tell a tale of three baseballs which just gets curiouser and curiouser (if we may mix Alice and Goldilocks).
We say, “MC Hammer pants,” “Day 9, the Waning of the Waft,” and “if you were sliding into third base, your cellphone would probably fall out of your pocket too.” Get boosted, fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith, and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at nocryinginbball.com.
