  1. I can only assume that Tony, wearing a moomoo and eating cornchips, declared war on random chance. Playing online poker, roulette, sex without condoms, betting on the Jets, and flipping a lonely little quarter, were all things Tony loved doing.

    After flipping that quarter six times and turning up tails every time, he wondered how he could alter his team in a manner that’d afford him a 1.50% of winning it all. He was on a lucky streak after all.

    After calling in the stats guys, Tony realized it was actually a Canadian quarter and a moose was staring him in the face. In a language only the moose and tony could understand, “Deal for Vernon Wells,” was proclaimed.

    With that said, I hope that the Angels absolutely destroy the odds and win it all. I hope that Steve Phillips proclaims Tony’s genius. I hope that the McRib becomes a permanent fixture on the McDonalds menu.

  2. That looks like a bear but I think it conveys the message clearly regardless.

  3. You’re telling me. I told the artist, explicitly: “Give me Tony Reagins in a COYOTE pelt” and then he gives me this. He’s using his artistic license, he tells me.

    Hah! Artistic license! Gimme a break, right?

  4. The first two paragraphs of this response were great.

    The first sentence of the third? Not so much.

  5. Hey, hey, hey… online poker is beatable. It’s not completely luck-based like roulette or hoping Vernon Wells makes this trade not the worst of all time.

  6. In Soviet Russia, Vernon Wells trades for YOU!
