Observed: Ben Revere Hit a Homer and We’re All Doomed

Can’t talk. Grabbing my go bag. Gotta lay low for a while, until this shit blows over. Stay frosty. Trust no one. Remember your training. I’ll see you on the other side.

I’ve seen Ben Revere hit batting practice home runs back when he was a Twin, and they all pretty much looked identical to this one.

You’re not Jeff Sullivan. But that’s okay. It’s cool.

I recognize two of the phrases as being from the Bourne Trilogy. Is one from Star Wars? The rest escape me.

Stay frosty is Call of Duty IIRC, trying to figure out the rest still.

“I’ll see you on the other side” is Lost.

‘Stay Frosty’ is used often in the Battle Royale manga, though I’ve no clue if it originates there.

It’s a military term

I’m sure it’s been used before, but when I read ‘Remember your training’ I kept thinking of Patches O’Houlihan in ‘Dodgeball’.

I’m sure young Ben Revere dreamed of this moment. Atta boy.

“It’s a good feeling,” Revere said. “When I got to second base, I didn’t know what to do. I was trying not to smile but some guys got on me. It was fun. I’ll try to hit 400 more.”

I will be at the game tonite, at which I expect Revere to go 7-9 with 3 HRs and 19 RBI in a 21-20 Phillies loss.

That’s okay, Ben. Most of us didn’t know what to do when we got to 2nd base either.

No need to panic. According to the prophesies this is only like the third seal. Big whup. Wake me up when a Dodgers pitcher finally has a no-hitter.

The third seal…that’s hilarious! Good one!

He may have missed his one opportunity for a post-HR bat flip.

Swear allegiance to the flag
Whatever flag they offer
Never hint at what you really feel
Teach the children quietly
For some day sons and daughters
Will rise up and fight while we stood still
