Triple-A Team Unveils Funnel-Cake Burger

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, the Triple-A affiliate of the Brewers, are doin' it REAL BIG this season. Check out the absurdity of these two new burgers they're bustin' out with for 2015.

Gotta be careful while eating that funnel-cake burger. That's the type of thing that if you eat it while wearing a black shirt, you might just look like you just got done snorting a mountain of cocaine after you're finished.

Jeff Samardzija Not Happy With His Cable Bill


We all know that these Cable companies are scumbags. Decent deal for the bundle for a year, then it goes through the roof. Call 'em to cancel, they beg you back for a lower price. How about just not raising the price in the first place?

Anyway, pretty awesome for The Shark to call out Comcast, while being interviewed on Comcast. But at least The Shark is rich. Think about all the poor schlubs in New York, paying Optimum an asinine amount of money for cable, only to have it go to a asshole like James Dolan, who the proceeds to consistently run the Knicks into the fucking ground with the money of the hard-working fans.

'Saved by the Bell' jerseys for Brooklyn Cyclones

After hosting a wildly-successful Seinfeld night last season, the Brooklyn Cyclones are back at it again, as they announced that they'll hold a salute to "Saved By the Bell" night on June 24th when the Mets' Short-Season Class A affiliate takes on the Tri-City ValleyCats.

According to the team's website the entire evening will focus on Bayside High’s favorite Tigers: Zack, Kelly, Slater, Jessie, Screech and Lisa. And it's not just a coincidence that the opponent is the ValleyCats, a strategic move made to play up the heated Bayside-Valley High rivalry.

Here’s a look at some of the fun that’s in store:

  • Pre-game “Sprain” Dancing Competition
  • A.C. Slater’s Sitting Backwards Musical Chairs
  • I’m So Excited Fan Cam
  • Mr. Tuttle’s Learner’s Permit On-Field Obstacle Course
  • Screech Powers Chess Tournament on the Concourse Level
  • Kiss Cam complete with the usual “WOOOOOOOOOOOW” sounds since our game will also be taped in front of a live studio audience
  • Anyone named Johnny Dakota is banned from the ballpark because we “Say Nope to Dope”
  • Oldest Cell Phone in the Ballpark Competition
  • Friendship bracelet station on the concourse...singing “Friends Forever” will be optional.
  • Zack Morris TIMEOUT Race Around the Bases – kids will race around the bases, but most stop in their tracks every time they hear TIMEOUT.
  • After the game, fans with perms or wearing stonewashed jeans will be allowed to run the bases.

The Cyclones will wear special jerseys with old-school Zack Morris cell phones, sunglasses and flaminogos printed on them, and the team will offer fans a special “Baseball to the MAX” ticket package, in honor of Bayside's favorite eatery. The deal includes a ticket to the game, pre-game picnic and commemorative t-shirt.

Topps Has 50 Cent Insert In New 2015 Set

Check out this 50 Cent card, which Topps will include as a "First Pitch" insert in the new 2015 set commemorating his infamous moment at Citi Field last year.

My favorite baseball-card related rap line of all-time was when Mos Def said "The kids better by my rookie card now, cause after this year the price ain't comin' down." But, that of course, is the only baseball-card related rap line I've ever heard.

'Mr. Cub' Ernie Banks passes away at 83

Very, very sad stuff. The passing of a legend. Maybe MLB will change up the schedule and have the Cubbies "play two" on Opening Day in honor of the all-time great.

Here's a video from MLB which takes look back at the Hall of Famer's career and jovial personality:
