Friday Funny, Pt. 2    

I have a new favorite minor league team: the Modesto Nuts.  Finally, Modesto makes up for unleashing Gary Condit on the world!

I couldn't stop giggling.  It's so stupid and childish, but I honestly don't give a rat's ass.  I strongly recommend taking a stroll through the News Room, if only to judge your true adulthood.  Never mind that the site is sponsored by Woody's Golf & Industrial Vehicles, but the headlines are pretty excellent.  They try their best, but I can't help but laugh at "Five-run second dooms Nuts."  I keep re-reading it, thinking that it'll eventually reveal itself to be unfunny... but it never is!

My favorite Nut?  Alan Johnson, of course.  Honorable mention: Jose Valdez and David Patton.  There's plenty to enjoy about Patton (Nuts) and Valdez (Nuts).  I tried to get something funny out of Blumenthal but couldn't do it.  I know there's a blueballs joke in there somewhere, dying to get out and be seen.  The closest I came was Blue Menthol Nuts, which is why I stopped.

Finally, I wish they were the property of the Nationals, so that their extended name could be the Nutionals.  If they wanted a fan base of one (me) they'd do that.

Go Nuts!



  • My favorite was "Oaks Beat Nuts in the Rain." Get that man an umbrella!

  • Here's a list of some funny school team names. Well, there aren't actually a lot of funny ones, but the Cornjerkers and Appleknockers are pretty great. And I'm happy about Butte's collective sense of humor.

    It'd be nice to find a website of college and minor league team names, although I'd have a tough time displacing my favorite this one . And the NBDL has some good ones ( here , here , and here . I can't wait to see what Fort Wayne, Iowa and Rio Grande Valley come up with).
