Quantcast

Among the reasons you should be on Twitter? Sometimes humorous interactions pop up unexpectedly.

Example: perhaps you make a joke about Cubs prospect Javier Baez breaking every window in sight, and someone follows up with a crack about Safelite. And then they respond quite seriously:

And sometimes Keith Law confirms a fake Joe Mauer account, and you crack wise about Law being the real deal …

The Internet, man. It’s a funny place. Join Twitter to get in on some of the fun.

    I can hear Pat in September this year:

    “Another home run by Javier Baez. As a reminder, all of Baez’s home runs are brought to you by Safelite. Just too bad there are no cars anywhere near Wrigley for them to sponsor a broken windshield.

    Good time to check in on today’s Attendance Game. Today’s figure is 8. We guessed 7 fans, so Theo from Chicago, you are our big winner today!”

      “I can hear Pat in September this year: ‘Another home run by Javier Baez.’”

      I can’t wait to hear that. Again and again and again and again.

      • miggy80

        Only after watching him jack a few out of Sec Taylor

    • Noah_I

      They’re just going to have Baez aim for the rooftops that have been the biggest troublemakers in the Wrigley renovations/expansion deal.

    • cavemancubbie

      I believe 8 was the number of fans in the bleachers, when I would cut class at Lane, to see my Cubbies play in September in the early 1950′s. Yes, I would get detention for my truancy but it was worth it! Sort of hard to hide yourself in 8 dedicated fans.

      If Pat is saying “Another home run by Javier Baez” with any frequency in September, there’s going to be a whole lot more than 8 people in the stands ;-)

    Twitter is indeed awesome. Btw, did some shopping at Amazon today, used the link. That’s pretty awesome too.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      And now you are awesome.

      • DarthHater

        Hey, I gave you an Amazon plug yesterday and you didn’t say I was awesome. :-( (Begin Death Star activation…)

        • Patrick W.

          You should know by now that Brett makes evidence based decisions and doesn’t rely on small sample sizes.

          I’ve gotta order something today, but I’m not going to until I get a preemptive “you’re awesome”.

          • DarthHater

            Your awesome. ;-)

          • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

            awesome

            • TWC

              K, I’ll buy it now, but only because it’s not a cat meme.

              • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

                I went back and forth between what you would prefer, and what would make me chuckle.

                • TWC

                  I appreciate you taking three seconds out of your day for that consideration.

                  • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

                    I’ll never get them back.

        • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

          That’s the risk of tossing out ‘you’re awesomes’ – I must have totally missed it. My bad. You are, and have usually always been, awesome.

          • Patrick W.

            Can I just say I’m enjoying this relationship where we are both helping pay each others’ salary? Because I am.

            • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

              Totes dittos.

          • http://www.michigangoat.blogspot.com MichiganGoat

            Hey I’ve order all my diapers and other Jr essentials through Amazon since this happened. I DEMAND MY AWESOME!

            • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

              awesome

              • http://www.michigangoat.blogspot.com MichiganGoat

                Sure give me the cut off meme… I’m going back to diapers.com!

    • hansman

      You know what’s NOT awesome…

      A roast beef and cheese sandwhich on a cinnamon raison bagel with pickeled onions and lettuce.

      Worst idea, EVER.

      • Tommy

        Have another hamburger, Hansman!

        REMEMBER THAT! HAHAHAHAHA! Ahh, good times, good memories there!

        • hansman

          HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA (as in an insane person laugh)

      • DarthHater

        I know how fact-based all your opinions are, Joe. So, I assume you tried that sandwich, before condemning it.

        • DarthHater

          Also, I’m pretty sure it would be even worse if you substituted an Ann Sather cinnamon roll in place of the bagel.

        • hansman

          I am choking it down as we speak.

          THIS IS WHY I STICK TO CHEESEBURGERS!!!!!!!!!!

          • DarthHater

            yikes

      • hansman

        and horseradish sauce

        • Katie

          I’m hungry now.

          • http://www.michigangoat.blogspot.com MichiganGoat

            Figured any sandwich you like would have to have strong bite to it.

  • brainiac

    i’ll just say it. i’m awesome.

    • DarthHater

      You’re awe inspiring, brains.

      • Patrick W.

        “You’re awww inspiring, brains.” FTFY

    • brainiac

      you guys, more than anyone, understand the two faces of janus

  • miggy80

    I got all of my fiance’s Valentines gifts from amazons Health and Personal Care section from the BNamazon link

  • Karl Groucho

    Slightly disappointed; I had hoped you were referring to the Carlos Martinez situation.

    Twitter “fun” indeed down in Cardland.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      That’d be SCardenfreude, and it’ll come soon enough …

  • Jim

    And now, Safelite follows me on twitter. Can’t make this stuff up.

    • DarthHater

      heh

      • Jim

        It did double my followers though. So I’ve got that going for me. Which is nice.

  • Patrick W.

    On the subject of Twitter, if you’re not following me on Twitter, you really shouldn’t be, so carry on.

    • TWC

      I heartily agree.

      • Patrick W.

        BLOCKED!

        • Patrick W.

          who am I kidding, I can’t afford to block anybody.
