Continued Yasiel Puig Bat-Flip Coverage for All America

Despite the fact that we all, each of us, invariably spend our days and nights in pursuit of money and then whores and then more money, rumors abound that, on all of our respective deathbeds, neither money nor whores will be of any great concern. This information might come as a surprise to the reader, who is almost certainly reading this post whilst atop a pile of money and beside a comely whore. However, it’s true: in the throes of death, one is more likely to ask questions like, “Did I exhibit courage?” and “Did I treat my friends and family well?”

As the present author is shuffling off this mortal coil and making an examination of both his works and days, he will undoubtedly have many regrets — like that one time he vomited on his shirt in an Armenian taxi, for example, and also that other time he vomited on his shirt in an Armenian taxi. Anyone who suggests, however, that he didn’t make an effort to record every last one of Yasiel Puig’s televised bat flips, is a goddamn liar.

By way of proof, here’s footage from the seventh inning of Tuesday’s game between the Los Angeles Nationals and Colorado (box):

Puig Flip Probably

And here’s precisely that same footage, except from a different angle:

A fleeting exhibition of pride at one’s accomplishment is no measure of a man’s character.

This is especially true when said accomplishment is remarkable, such as being an elite performer in an extraordinarily competitive field.

You do not have any idea if Yasiel Puig is a ‘douche’.

“Douche” is actually onomatopoeia for the sound Puig’s bat makes when it strikes the ball.

@John: you really shouldn’t refer to yourself that way; it leads to low self-esteem.

Using combative monosyllabic curse words is often correlated with low intelligence, you fulminant cockring.

Correlated, sure, but not likely causative. I dare say, the causal relationship likely flows from the low intelligence to the combative monosyllabic curse words.

Also, I live in constant fear of fulminant cockrings.
