Old Hoss Radbourn

95 posts in this topic

This shtick is blowing up big time with a mention in Time Magazine. I'd like to think that guy is our very own Old Hoss spawned in the WIS golden age, but probably not.

Whoever is at the controls is also the sponsor of the baseball-reference.com page:

Charley "Old Hoss" Radbourn sponsor(s) this page.

Gaze below at the statistical flibberdigab that supposedly represent the greatness that was my career. But these numbers are useless: there are no columns for pints consumed, harlots bedded, or blades brandished.

:lmao:

Take heart, Kansas. You will always have the legacy of "Bleeding Kansas" and a questionable role in Abolition.

I want to believe it's really him. Edited by Mr. Pickles

Sadly, I cannot claim rightful ownership of this tweeting tomfoolery. I'm too busy sleeping with virgins and drinking the finest homebrew to be on this Twitter thing.

I do admire the man's spirit, and hopefully one day, I'll be able to meet him in a lively drinking establishment and share an ale or two with him. :thumbup:

I have enjoyed Old Hoss over on the Twitters myself. If I had enough ambition, I would start a similar one.

Needed to give this a bump. He's currently counting down ESPN's list of 100 greatest baseball players in his own inimitable way.

Sample: #81: "Duke" Snider. His inclusion is a tribute to the loyal fans of Brooklyn, who mercifully are all dying and can finally shut up

The best outcome of this Alabama-Georgia contest would be if both teams ran into a Union cavalry division.

My favorite so far:

#80: C. Gehringer. A worthy inclusion. Stole the 1937 MVP award from an Italian. Good man and fine patriot.

The best part was that I momentarily thought to myself, "oh man, he's gonna be pissed about that" and then I realized I was talking about a guy who's been dead for 125 years.I think the Mariano Rivera one might be my new favorite.

I've been laughing at my desk all afternoon.

#54: W. Boggs. Enjoyed fornication, beer, chicken, loose women, smashing doubles, invisibility, and his mustache. The consummate team-mate.

#55: R. Jackson. Would be much higher on this list had he killed the queen. Sic semper tyrannis, candy man.

@OldHossRadbourn: I have not seen a Sanchez make this many mistakes since the Mexican-American War.

I once pitched in 23 degree weather. I shot a buffalo, wore its hide, and tossed a complete game without complaint.

@OldHossRadbourn: I'd sooner take back all the poxed blankets we gave to the red man than intentionally walk a batter.

I suggest the following scents for your Man Candle line: Burning Injun Scalp, Perfumed Whore, and Gunpowder.

@OldHossRadbourn

I know a fine way to prevent Y. Puig from hitting a home run.


@OldHossRadbourn

My plan rests on the possibly flawed assumption that a player who hits a ball over the wall but is garroted at 2B has *not* hit a home run.


JFC... :lmao: :lmao:
