My kid touched it and damn near killed some people...

My kid just did something to make 2 grown men trip over air while almost causing them to shit their pants and have mini strokes...

Let's take this back a few months or a year, whatevs. It was late October, a team made it into the playoffs on a wild card and they fought hard and wouldn't give in. I am a huge fan, I am sure I damaged my liver drinking and watching every game, the second to the last game about made me loose my mind too, down by two tied, almost every inning and finally winning that game. This team is the St. Louis Cardinals. The 2011 World Series Champions.

They had a piece of memorabilia at the field my son plays at tonight so we decided to go see. There was a little line, we waited the kids were dancing on the tables they were so excited. We watched people take picture after picture but yet no one got too close.

The sales person for large groups was there, in charge of the memorabilia. He was a tiny little squirt so we will call him tiny-smalls. He had a big world series ring. He was mighty impressed with the ring even though he actually did not earn it himself. He reeked of small man complex. He was chatting it up and showing off that huge ass ring on his short man hand. It came up to our turn to take a little peek. We walked up I was telling kids where to stand for the picture and 4 walked right up and touched it. He touched the World Series trophy. That's right my kid fondled the World Series trophy. Like it was a toy, like it was nothing, just rubbed up all over it.

Tiny-smalls and his posse about shit their pants tripping on air while having mini-strokes to stop him... All my kid said "it feels fake". By the way they flipped out it obviously wasn't a fake. Tiny-smalls clearly forgot his DO NOT TOUCH sign and was paying little attention to the trophy itself, more to the accomplishment he didn't earn, the ring.  So there you have it...My kid is probably the only kid who has touched the World Series Trophy and he thinks it's a big pile of fake shit. Have fun polishing the ice cream off it tiny-smalls...

  1. Some people just don't have any sense of humor. And I don't think it's a coincidence that they always seem to be men.

  6. Yes Kellie great comment!
    One would think there would be a big sign, maybe a plexi glass case or a bodyguard of average size...
