Let's see, 21 years old, from out of state, inebriated. Looks like she is the typical Wrigley fan. Best fans in the world.

Her souvenir is a headband stained by grass that she never plans on washing :tongue:

So Mark Buerhle is the only person that has ever slid on a rain filled tarp?

Orioles cathcer Rick Dempsey used to tarp slide back in the day.

Thursday's pinhead in the "Pinheads and Patriots" segment of The O'Reilly Factor streaked at Citi field and slid into second base.

Maybe the guy in the picture was going for the French pronunciation of "Morans".

I saw the video of the guy streaking that his best friend made (I say that because the entire time, the guy taking the video was shouting "THAT'S MY BEST FRIEND! WOOOOO!"). It was HILARIOUS. Then they went around and interviewed people's reactions, everyone loved it.

The slide into second was the greatest thing I've seen in a while.

Diversions are fun. Especially when they add absolutely nothing to the joke at hand. Congratulations.

I wish I could find the video again but I used to have one of those "baseball blooper" videos and it showed two players that came out on the tarp during a rain delay. One of them went to the mound and one stood at the plate.

The pitcher when through the motion of pitching and the batter acted like it was a brushback pitch and fell over. Then he did it again and hit a homerun. Then he trotted around the bases and slid into home.

I do remember that one of the players was wearing somebody else's jersey and one looked like he had a pillow stuffed under his jersey.

Les Lancaster slid on the tarp during the rain delay on what was supposed to be the evening of the cubs first-ever home night game.

I thought it was more amusing that those morons spent a ton of $$$$ to be there to see it.

It turned out to be the highlight of the evening. A journeyman pitcher sliding on the tarp and the first ever night game in wrigley was cancelled due to rain.

August 8, 1988. My ex had a tshirt from what was supposed to be that game. I remember using it as a mop up rag :tongue:
