Speaking of THE LEGEND OF SAM FULD, my 13 year old little sister (WHO HATES SPORTS) was feeling down this past week, so I told her she should follow Sam Fuld on Twitter, and that she would like him cause he's 5'9" (she likes short dudes for some reason). Of course, she wasn't into the idea at all. So I asked Sam for a retweet on his Twitter account, so she would become a Rays fan, which he did, and I showed her, which caused her to start looking up his biography and looking up highlights of him laying out for diving catches and robbing guys of homers. Now, she's all stoked about baseball, has been diving in on how to formulate batting averages, who's the all-time home run hitter (I told her Hank Aaron), why she's supposed to hate the Yankees and Red Sox (they suck balls) and now she's buying baseball cards. It's crazy. Did I mention that she HATES sports? And now, she was jumping up and down about Longoria's homer tonight against the Rangers, and it's all thanks to that short, diabetic, Jewish dude from Stanford.
This story is wonderful. Thank you for sharing this with me. :)
When are you taking her to a game to meet ~the Legend~ in person?
As I was creeping on your page (yet again, I can't stay away) I saw the anon about Sam's picture thingy, it's posted on FYLOSF a while ago, but it's not that serious, I don't care if they reposted it as their own as long as the love of the legend spreads.
Here you go, anon. :)
Not sure why this was an issue with me, and not the person who originally posted that picture who didn’t choose to reblog you to begin with. Maybe he/she found it elsewhere and wasn’t aware as well. It’s whateverr.
I was scrolling through your archives and I noticed that the picture of Sam fuld, the one where he has his hand on his chin, was posted a while ago the the fylegend of Sam fuld tumblr, the original picture is a much lighter coloring, one would think that the person who got it off that tumblr would at least credit the peson who took the time to do the coloring. I bet whoever runs that blog might be slightly ticked off.
If anyone would let me know where this came from, I would gladly credit it. For now, I suppose I will just remove it.
“I don’t know about that, but I wouldn’t mind switching contracts with him.”—Rays outfielder Matt Joyce (who makes $426,500), when asked if, after two triples Friday, he was the “new” Carl Crawford (who got a 7-year, $142 million deal in Boston). Matt also leads the MLB in batting average at .355 (via battingcleanup)
