He’s Got Big Balls
Well, a big ball.
Saw this photo about a week or so ago, and for the rest of the day had that old 70′s-era AC/DC song stuck in my head. Did you know that none of their songs are available for purchase on iTunes? Annoying but true. They apparently believe that their albums are works of art meant to be heard in their entirety, and that if they allowed them to be sold on iTunes, people would pick and choose just the songs they wanted. Well, duh! Of course we would! There are some artists I could understand that argument from, but AC/DC is not one of them.
But back to the ball.
I didn’t even know Rawlings made them this big. I suppose the larger size does confer certain benefits – more room for autographs, easier to sign a really long name like Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
But how do you display it? It won’t fit in those little plastic cubes. And it’s not exactly the handiest thing to carry around with you – it would be a bit difficult to stow that baby in your pocket.
After yesterday’s off day, the Phils host the Mets tonight, so tomorrow I should (hopefully) have something more substantive to ramble about. :-)
