If I were an editorial artist, I'd do the following illustrations about this STUPID MLB lockout that has a very good chance of wrecking SO MANY THINGS BESIDES MISSING A COUPLE SPRING TRAINING BASEBALL GAMES.
I don't even know how I was dumb enough to believe that each side would earnestly try to save this thing before parts of the season are threatened to go away.
And now Spring Training is delayed, and we didn't get that wonderful mental picture of Cubs Pitchers and Catchers Reporting.
They want to expand the base audience and attract a younger crowd?
TRY PLAYING BASEBALL!
That a lockout is the headline rather than things like the DH coming to the NL is just. so. dumb.
I read awhile ago that the Cards may have interest in Kyle Schwarber as a DH.
Can you imagine him hitting one on top of the scoreboard at Wrigley as a CARDINAL?
Anyway, please baseball, figure yourself out.
I'm unclear on if I'll be able to continue this blog.
It turns out that being an artist means expanding your visual universe beyond baseball, and hilariously... being an artist is actually way more time consuming than my old job.
So, I may stop.
I may do just a weekly thing (once baseball starts). Not sure.
I'm buying a tent, by the way.
A tent and tables and stuff to make myself a booth that'll look like this:
And I'll be one of those artists at an art fair.
Hope it is.
Last thing, I went into my local fish market, Hagen's.
You know those deli counter tickets with the numbers? I realized it would make a perfect bathing suit for a sarcastic cat.
