Good thing that the chairs are bolted to the floor.

It's the players that should be wearing masks.

So help me understand this: Does Arizona want more Mexicans or less?

The team handed out 20,000 luchador masks for their 2nd annual 'Lucha Libre' night at the ballpark. It was a compliment to this season's debut of the D-Backs Luchador, an actual wrestler by day, team mascot by night (no worries, Baxter fans. The Luchador isn't about to piledrive him into the scrap heap. They are tag-team partners when entertaining the home crowd).

Fark Baxter. One of the stupidest, most annoying mascots I've ever seen. The stupid thing has an actual "punchable face", it's like the James O'Keefe of sports mascots. The Luchador makes more freakin' sense, but Jesus, they should have thought about this whole mascot thing when coming up with the team name, or not had one at all. That's acceptable, too, but for God's sake, if you ARE going to have a desert cat of some kind, don't have one that would make people want to swerve and hit if the guy were standing on the side of the road.

It also helps:

1) husbands playing hooky;
2) employees and pupils ditto ditto;
3) criminals being looked for by the police, FBI, NSA, IRS, etc;
4) anybody else who has a good reason to be camera shy.

And what the hey!

5) the television audience.

I don't follow baseball very closely, so I had to look this up to be sure:  San Francisco, where this article originates, has the SF Giants in last place in the Western Division, 11 games behind, and has lost 5 in a row.  Arizona is in 2nd place in the Western Division, 3.5 games behind, and has lost 3 in a row.

I didn't read the whole article, was the last line something like "...so send us the masks."?

I really don't care how well they do. I just enjoy going to the games. The cinnamon sugar almonds are awesome.

Rand's lacy underwear: So help me understand this: Does Arizona want more Mexicans or less?


Arizona wants the Mexicans' money (see: all the Mexicans that go to Nogales, AZ to shop on the weekend) but they don't want the Mexicans themselves (see: SB 1070, even in its current weakened state).

I would also think it would be a great time to wear one of these masks and a team jersey, and rob the crap out of everyone in sight.
