Announcing the unprecedented first season of NotGraphs Sunday Night Baseball presented by Purina, Imodium, and, the Internet’s exclusive, inclusive, and occlusive (it will gum up your Internet) game of the week, showcasing baseball-related products from Rawlings, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Blue Cross Blue Shield, and, oh, maybe some baseball players too, as they hit and pitch and devour new edible delights from Sonic throughout the 2014 season. The season will begin with a once-in-a-lifetime intramural softball game between the folks at Skippy Peanut Butter and Smucker’s Jam (will be rebroadcast three more times, so don’t worry if you miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance), presented by our friends at Bread: Makers of Bread, the exclusive bread bakers for NotGraphs and all of our affiliates, including the National Mustache Society. Preceding the webcast will be a special 4-hour Salute to Actual Tweets, presented by Banco Unpopular, Frito-Lay, the National Wildlife Foundation, and Progesterone, the official hormone of our Sunday Night Baseball presentations.

“Did you make sure to include all of our sponsors in the press release?”

“Yeah, I think so.”

“Great. Don’t forget Swiffer.”

“Oh, okay.”
