Tim Byrdak’s Robust Commentary on Role of Disguise

In his important work on the nature of play, Man, Play, and Games, late French sociologist Roger Caillois argues that, in those societies where simulation and disguise are utilized, they are often done so as a means to ecstasy of some sort.

This footage of left-handed reliever and newish New York Met Tim Byrdak dressed as wrestler Hulk Hogan does little to dispel that notion — on account of all the ecstasy present in it, I mean.

Do you have a urine sample that confirms ecstasy was present? In light of all that has transpired these last two weeks, please have all your ducks in a row before bandying about accusations. Possession of MDMA is a serious crime. Plus, people that have a y in their last name where an i should be, and a lone k, where a ck should be, are often persecuted.
