Since everyone outside of San Diego thinks that we use Anchorman references for everything I'll just go ahead and say it....."Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean, that really got out of hand fast!"
Since my post last night, not only has the site received a flurry of traffic, but Scott & BR talked about the balls on air, I invented a new hashtag on Twitter (#balls), Giants fans and bloggers have gone on the attack against not only Mat, but myself as well, LobShots reignited the inferno this morning, Big League Stew wrote up a piece on it and 2 of all 3 of the balls were sold! One of which was by Twitter follower San Diego Josh that he will sell again at some point with the proceeds going to charity.
Honestly people, it's not that big of a deal. Like I stated before, it's all in good fun and some of the money is going towards a good cause.
With that said, I'd like to place a friendly wager on the season series with Splashing Pumpkins on the 2011 season series between the Padres and Giants. You come up with something that San Francisco is known for (excluding weed, hippies, hacky sacks & tie dye shirts) and I'll come up with something San Diego and we'll ship it off. Or we could always go the "Wear my teams hat or shirt" route. What do you say?
Phew! OK now that that's over (is it?).
In the middle of the Twitter war, I was sent a link to a pretty epic shirt that I felt you guys must know about. The folks over at The-Rec created a new "The Murph" shirt. Avenging Jack Murphy & myself are already lining up to get these. According to the website they'll be available sometime in the Spring of this year.
