A bunch of licking idiots
When we started Talkin' Yanks our goal wasn't to go around and lick everything. If it was, that would have been such a dumb route to take just to lick things.
This is where we have found ourselves though.
It started last offseason when Jake said Bird would go 0/10 off Miller and needed to be pinch hit for. I bet him that if Bird homered off Miller he would have to lick his dog's butt (tail up).
You know what happened next.
Next, I protested Chasen Shreve being on the team after he gave up a walk-off home run after throwing just ONE PITCH. My form of protest.... licking sand.
Shreve stayed on the roster.
Clint down. Shreve stays. Lickin sand. https://t.co/oq1WZLtgcb— Jomboy (@Jomboy_) June 25, 2018
We have just finalized the third act of our sand licking antics. Our writer, Rob Rosene threw this tweet out before a July 24th Tanaka start.
if tanaka doesn't give up a home run i'll lick an armadillo shell— Robert Rosene (@RobRosene) July 24, 2018
Tanaka's line that day?
complete game shutout. 3 hits. 0 homers.
LICK THAT SHIT ROB!
Then Rob pivoted because he decided he was terrified of leprosy, which... I don't know, I've always been a don't knock it til you try it guy but Rob can do what he wants.
He wanted to lick a fish instead.
Final statement: no armadillo will be licked (leprosy). I will lick the entire length of a full size bass once I catch one (soon) and it will posted to @TalkinYanks. In the mean time, read my Tanaka article, rate and review the podcast. Happy licking.— Robert Rosene (@RobRosene) July 25, 2018
And that he did.
