The Coolest Squirrel Ever, Wreaks Havoc On An Entire Inning Of Baseball

Friday, September 05, 2008

This video via Franky at Denseland just had me rolling this morning. A squirrel got loose on the field during the ninth inning of the White Sox- Indians game yesterday and proceeded to amaze and entertain for most of the frame....

That little guy had to be on acid or something, but I really want him as a pet. Hell, the Indians should turn him into a version of the Rally Monkey and start selling little plush versions of him at the ballpark. Oh and the announcer's comment about him playing third in the shift was hilarious. Good times.


I giggled more at everyone's half ass attempt to stop the acid squirrel. It's like people are embarrassed to get outmaneuvered by wildlife.

I would've been the only asshole putting a whole hearted effort into keeping that squirrel off the field. I would ran full speed, dived, and strangled that little fuck.

Sorry PETA.

Anyway, you're welcome. :)

Yes yes....just fixed it as you sent that in. My bad....I'm still out of it after last night's game.

The play-by-play guy was Matt Underwood and the color guy was Rick Manning, and they are normally good for an enjoyable call. Manning might be moving up, he's had some national exposure the past two seasons and Underwood is obsessed with sending balls to souvenir city.

The best part about Manning though is that guy is like Harry Doyle from Major League. He can put away booze like its nobody's business. Damn good guy though.

And long live the rally squirrel.

Umm, squirrels are a little quicker than that. You can't just pick them up. Plus, they have ridiculously sharp claws that can destroy you (how do you think they climb trees so well?).

But that was a very entertaining video. I liked how he seemed not to notice the presence of the umpire; that was somehow very appropriate.

I would, myself, if I ate at Swingos On The Lake every meal...and made $$ in the same gambling ring he got busted in.
