This, THIS is AMERICA

The Well-Beered Englishman, a NotGraphs frequenter and tipster, may hail from yonder eastern edges of the pond, but HE KNOWS AN AMERICAN WHEN HE SEES ONE:

That Hero was present during Friday’s Wednesday’s Rangers-Astros contest.

A dose of always-thanks to WBE.

Let’s tally the American on display here:
Busty blond, likely fed on corn (bonus points if this is a Texas ballgame)
Hot dogs being eaten at a ballgame
Chinstrap beards…
…On Brosephs…
Cheap beer being sipped from a canbottle.

Like Richard the Hamster Hammond, he might be from Yurp, but the blood of Bald Eagles runs in his veins.

There’s also a Red Bull can! Or perhaps I should say, a Red-White-And-Blue Bull Ameri-Can.(Red Bull is made by an Austrian company, oops)

But don’t worry, the photos also contain cell phone photography, a backwards baseball cap, and plenty of blue jeans. America.

You’re welcome, America.

Two corrections if I may be so bold…
*not on television; I took the photos in person
*at Wednesday’s game, not Friday’s

This mouse cursor is a splendourous thing!

The only thing more American would be selling the naming rights to the splendorous mouse cursor.

The Kinsler shirt is strange. How can a man enjoy an all-pork hot dog wearing that? Michael Young or Nolan Ryan would have been more appropriate.

This IS absolutely glorious. I do note, however, that the seats right behind him are empty. I can imagine every time he turned right or left, he was totally obstructing the view. Which recalls me to the time I was at Dodger Stadium for one of the WBC games, and some dude in a Jeter jersey sits right in front of me with one of those felt patriotic Uncle Sam hats. He completely blocked my entire view of the damn field.

There is nothing funnier than a Texas booby.
