Your 9-Year-Old Self is Terrified of Playing for the Rays

Regard:

The Rays 2013 pregame clubhouse entertainment now includes at least:

• A DJ.
• A magician.
• A meringue band.
• A flock of penguins.
• A cockatoo.
• Bushels of plantains hanging from the lockers.
• A 20-foot python.

I may be forgetting one or two.

Also because when I was 9 years old, the Rays were a terrible team.

Not only were they terrible, but they had ‘Devil’ in their name.

And on 6-6-06 they lost to the Angels after the Angels caught Carl Crawford trying to Steal second base. Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction…

If only Angel Pagan could have been involved in that game…

That would be confusing. Is he a Pagan Angel, or one or the other?

As long as they don’t send in the clowns, my 9 year old self will still happily play for the Devil Rays.

Also, there are like 4 FoxSports1 ads on this page. The 2 giant banners on the sides of the page, the .gif over the “Notgraphs Hot Hotline” link, and the one at the very top of the page next to the Notgraphs logo.

You don’t want me to watch FoxSports1, do you Notgraphs?
