As in, Bronson Arroyo, junkballer extraordinaire.
The most fun you can have as a new parent after performing diaper duty is to take that tightly bundled used diaper and try to pitch it into the waiting trash can. Amazing knuckleball action. Not unlike the lightbulb leaving Arroyo’s hand.
Though the stakes are a bit higher with the used diaper. I learned that the hard way.
For reasons I will not describe, this GIF makes me want to invent a wiffle ball designed for a wood bat league and hire Arroyo as the headline pitcher of said league. And Tim Wakefield. And Jamie Moyer. Let’s get Rickey and Jose Canseco on the field while we’re at it.
Rickey thinks that’s a fantastic idea.
I prefer cursing, and the term shitballer. Maybe there could be another GIFinition with brown shrapnel spewing from an R.A. Dicker offering.
Big bloody f@$#R@%ing chance, that.
I believe the term is “Some Common Phrases GIF-ustrated”, hence the category.
Even his fastball is junky. Nice.
