Seriously, this smart phone thing drives me nuts.
People walking around in a complete daze, stepping out in front of busses, blocking doorways, stepping on pets...
The other day I'm having lunch with a guy who gets a text, and it's like he stepped into another room.
Big goofy smile, just...lost in the smart phone.
Stupid Fone Face.
Then yesterday Sutter sends me a text.
It's got a link to a story written by Rany Jazayerli over at Grantland.
You read it and suddenly you're the smartest guy in the room just because you're a fan of the Chicago Cubs.
You feel justified... all the crap you've been taking since the wooly mammoth roamed the earth starts to not matter.
You feel elation.
You feel hope.
And you have stupid Fone Face.
I don't have all the links but I'm sure you've been noticing more good press lately.
How about young Kyle Hendricks?
Did you see how bad he made Ryan Braun look?
With the buncha low stuff to get two strikes, then throwing one up in his eyes that he couldn't not swing at?
And the other one where he stayed low and made Braun look almost Alfonso-like.
I was rolling on the ground.
If you don't believe Hendricks by now, you should by the end of the season.
The Orioles, Giants, Blue Jays, Reds, Pirates, Cards, Dodgers, Brewers...
All those teams gotta win.
If Hendricks keeps on knocking these big boys down...
More stupid Fone Face.
ps: After I got done with the art, I noticed an unfair ratio of women to men with the Fone Face. I promise it's pretty even.
