Yes Torii, Times Are Indeed Hard

America is dealing with some of the hardest economic times she has seen in recent years. Although professional baseball players tend to make a decent amount of coin, even they can’t remain blissfully aware of the plights of us plebeians. Observe the sight which befell Torii Hunter yesterday:

  1. Based on that chair, I’m imagining a seat belt MacGyver’d out of a yard stick, shoe laces, a Tomagotchi and some Elmers glue.

    And maybe it IS just society, but how does one lose the initial front seat? Isn’t it sort of, I don’t know, “latched in” there?

    Any chance the fender had a “My Other Car is a Magic School Bus” bumper sticker?

      I don’t see an increase in performance when the chair slides into the back seat after he hit the throttle. But the seat must be much easier to adjust.
