First round of MLB Playoffs a real trip


Tripping out on the Twins

Tripping out on the Twins

Despite all but one of the series being three-and-done, the first round of the MLB Playoffs had its share of highlights: Mark Texeira’s walk-off, Vladimir Guerrero’s game-winning single off the legendary Jonathan Papelbon, a pair of gems from Cliff “he’s no Halladay” Lee and a career’s worth of clutch hits by A-Rod. Still, the moment that stood out most to me was the above screen cap from TBS’ coverage of the Yankees-Twins finale. And here I thought I’d never find a fan that could outshine Facepaint Guy, who was a regular during Philly’s World Series run last season (but oddly wasn’t in attendance in this year’s NLDS, from what I could tell).

(Note: According to some online investigators, the Twins fan is Chris Mars, who used to play the drums in a Minneapolis band called The Replacements. Apparently he’s now an artist that fetches up to $30,000 for his work. He also likes going to baseball games and eating baked potatoes.)
