“Shameless”, is a word that might be used to describe the mental state of the author as he begins constructing this post. “Wholly Unaccomplished in Life”, is an epitaph to which said author will likely be resigned by the end of this same post….
Election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame is a mark — albeit an imprecise one, to say the least — of greatness. While some of the players enshrined in the Hall could hardly have been greater than they actually were (like the newly elected Greg Maddux), I think I speak for at least seven billion people when I say that the perfect set of eyebrows can greatly improve the aura of even the greatest of the greats. Great. So.
Speaking again for those same seven billion people, I say that Branch Rickey’s eyebrows are perfect for affixing under almost any circumstance. Here they are, then, affixed in pixels to the newest inductees to the Hall of Fame.
As we know from various endeavors here at NotGraphs — endeavors to insert baseball-associated names, faces, and themes into what we might otherwise consider non-baseball realms — that super imposing baseball where there is none will always improve matters. Baseball, after all, is better than Not Baseball.
Here are some images, previously not associated with baseball in anyway, that have been drastically improved by affixing to them the best baseball-associated eyebrows in history.
The best foods? Still could be better by adding Branch Rickey’s eyebrows!
Even my cats, whom I generally believe to be flawless, are better when they don Branch Rickey’s eyebrows!
