You know when it’s going to be a bad day when:::::
As you leave the bullpen the crowd behind you starts singing.
“we’ll all gather by the river…….the beautiful, beautiful river..”
“your backstop asks if you want a blindfold or a cigarette?”
You take the mound as a reliever and your coach keeps referring to you
in the past tense!
The scoreboard operator signals the chief umpire that their just about out
Your joker of a catcher visits you on the mound and gets the notion to give
you a cup check… and you’re not wearing one.
One of your teammates from the dugout makes a mound visit and you ask
where’s the coach? To which he answers “ Oh, he wanted to get to the
package store before it closes!”
Your catcher walks out to you on the mound and gives you a ball and says,
“the ump says try not to lose this one –ok?”
