Notre Dame Socks

4

All base runners know they are not alone on those treacherous paths between the bases.  They know they will be guided and  reassured by the calming voices of former combatants, stationed conveniently at first and third base.  Those sage voices will alert them to the current game state, as well as any potential threats and opportunities at hand.

However, shrewd as they may be, to the young men of Notre Dame baseball, these counselors must seem a little comical as well.  How else would you describe a fully- and plumply-grown man wearing such socks?  Imaginative men’s hosiery, like any outlandish fashion contrivance really, is best left to the youngsters.  If your brain will allow it, take note of these seemingly incongruous facts:  Jesse Woods, first base coach and leader of young men, is both an object of reverence and of comic relief.

Things That Could Fit Under Daniel Rockhold

The video above is of the distinctively, and might I say, prodigiously posed Daniel Rockhold, the 6′ 3″ senior third baseman and catcher for the USF Bulls baseball club.  His stance is quite remarkable in that it spans almost all six feet of batter’s box length skillfully outlined by the USF grounds crew and their li’l fluffy white powder wagon.  His wide stance is so remarkable, in fact, the author spent more time than he should have attempting to enumerate humorous objects that might fit or could be rolled underneath Daniel Rockhold while he attempts to strike at a baseball.  To wit:  (1) a flagpole, (b) a car axle, (iii) a skilled limbo dancer confident in his own sexuality, or perhaps, curious about Daniel Rockhold’s.  It should be noted it took the author an exceedingly long time to generate even this modest list and he feels somewhat lacking in creativity at the moment as a result.
