Throwback Thursday indeed


[Scene: last night at the First Fan Family’s house]

MC: Did you see the promo pic for the game?
BSC: I saw that there was one, but I didn’t really look at it.
MC: Uh huh. Here, look at the awesomeness and tell me what you see. [hands laptop to BSC] BSC: Whoa! Well… you got Brickhouse (retired).
MC: Uh huh.
BSC: You got Molly (retired).
MC: Uh huh.
BSC: You got… is Dot flipping us off?
MC: I think so. I’m pretty sure Cahill is too, though, so maybe it’s a thing.
BSC: #22? who? that’s?
MC: #22’s Hollandberg1 now.
BSC: But that’s [in PA announcer voice] Patty Hefferman (baby-retired).
MC: Yeah. Why’s she so short, though?
BSC: ‘Cause giant Cahill.
MC: …throwing one of the two IWFL balls depicted in the WFA playoff promo.
BSC: Awesome! Why didn’t I notice that?
MC: I dunno. ‘Cause giant Cahill?
BSC: [serious face] Wait a second.

[Stands on chair, gets stack of old Boston Militia program books. Flips through and stops at 2009.]

BSC: Whoa ho! Looks like some serious recycling happened here.
MC: Yeah, man! There’s the same Cahill, and Alpo, and Dot, and…Dot again. Huh. Double Dot. D to the fourth power.
BSC: And yet they didn’t use Bri, right there, who actually IS still on the team.
MC: Oh oh oh! The city! In the background! It’s the same!
BSC: That’s what I was saying – they just recycled the same photo.
MC: And had some art student recreate it in colored beans?
BSC: That’s a photoshop filter, babe.
MC: That’s a BEAN filter is what that is.

1That will only make sense if you saw my Facebook post about it. Sorry if you didn’t. Back to top

    How about that throwback IWFL ball?
    The promo video is pretty much the same too (inset new team, delete brawl in background)
