I'm so behind.
Darwin Barney won a Gold Glove award!
Besides Starlin Castro and Bryan LaHair's All-Star nods, isn't that about the only award any Cub won in 2012?
Besides whoever won the bunting contest?
I found out from Wikipedia that the award is actually a "glove made from gold lamé-tanned leather and affixed to a walnut base".
So it's not really gold at all.
It's kind of the same stuff (only real stretchy) that people like J Lo wear when they want to attract attention to their bottom, which is pretty much all the time.
I was in Costco and saw a bottle of Gold Bond Powder that could work as a family heirloom.
It was so huge you could pass it down from generation to generation and not run out until the Cubs won a World Series.
And I was reminded of this time a million years ago on a shoot...
It was outside on a really hot day and we had about the worst director I ever worked with and we were doing sort of a music video thing when suddenly the writer who shall remain nameless because he was so shameless suddenly blurts out, "Man do I ever have a bad case of swamp-ass! Can somebody go get some Gold Bond Powder?"
When you're working in the glamour of film production, they don't want people like the writer of the commercial to leave the shoot to go buy something like Gold Bond Powder. You want that guy thinking about the shoot and what could be done to make a shot better or whatever. The production company has production assistants to run out and get stuff you need. One time I had terrible allergies and they got me some Sudafed.
But in this case it was Gold Bond Powder.
So the writer could take care of his swamp-ass.
Yeah, so not too much to talk about, but then again maybe there is I just can't find time to read the sports.
Back to work now!
