The Nationals tryouts are very, very early this off-season.

So whose side are we on here?  Is she a hero because she's attacking the police or is she a traitor because she thinks the election was stolen?

We'll know soon.....

Yes, we all have the urge to put a Louisville Slugger through the teeth of our enemies.

It is the ability to resist that urge that in part civilizes us.

Personally, I like the little souvenir sized ones. They're still really sturdy, and you can get a nice whack with them. More of a baton than a bat.

It never says she hit anyone, maybe she was a Giants player w/ men on base?

I'm assuming you hold the opposite positions to the above, but I just wanna say I like them, and I'm rooting for an answer to your imaginary question!

Police identified the woman as 25-year-old Olivia Romero. Charges are pending.

I'd bet that's a Faces of Meth mugshot right there.

Unless she was using the bat to knock an officer off of someone's neck while they're helpless on the ground, I'm going with #2.

Officers tried to take the bat from her, and during the scuffle she bit one of the officers

Yay.  Now a zombie apocalypse

She tried to check-swing, but the First Base umpire called it a strike

This is a great answer. So good that I think I should steal it for future use.
Thanks!

Uh oh...last time a bat carrier bit someone, we got a global pandemic.

Time to stock up on TP again!

She had a séance and the voices so directed her.  But for some reason, all her girls went to the beach where they danced and the people in the background flipped them off.

I can't get over the fact I never saw that moustache when I was a kid.

But definitely the best camp Joker.

Unsung_Hero: I can't get over the fact I never saw that moustache when I was a kid.


As kids we only had those small screen tube tv's with band reception. I never noticed until recently watching a repeat on ME TV on 65 inch HDTV screen.

Then DVD's and better picture quality came out and his moustache is now visible.

Its been rumored that Caesar didn't want to shave it off and therefore, they tried to hide it best they could.

I thought he was a good Joker...campy?  I never thought so because Joker is supposed to be wacky and insane.  Even today I can still hear that cackle/laugh and it reminds me of poor evil.

What was campy?  The stupid traps he would set for batman and robin....

I digress.

I prefer a 7 iron myself.  And you can use the head of the club as a handgrip and it doubles as a cane!

When I was in my 20s and living with a bunch of roommates, we had a fictional character called "Bat Boy". We'd fantasize him showing up and cracking someone in the head when they said or did something particularly stupid. Poor guy would have been worked to exhaustion in the past couple years.

When did the police start using beekeeper helmets on arrestees? If COVID is going around, its not going to keep it out or keep it in.

They've been using them (or something similar) for decades on people who spit at them, nothing to do with covid.

So an anti-Biden protester, but from an anti-pipeline, pro Native American angle. Quite the swerve. Support the cause but don't see how a baseball bat would help the situation. If you want to take a direct action block traffic or have a sit in in Congress or something.
