MVP Announcements Too Late for Some Fans

Terry PendletonNew York, NY -- Major League Baseball is taking flak for waiting until today to announce Terry Pendleton as the winner of the National League Most Valuable Player Award for 1991.

Some fans seem to think that the long-delayed announcement lacks relevance in the face of the football and young basketball seasons.

“Yeah, Terry Pendleton,” said Peter Griffin, a sports fan who heard the announcement on television at a local Hooters. “He plays for the Colts, right? That team is freakin' sweet.”

Some baseball fans, especially younger ones, complain that they've never heard of Terry Pendleton.

“I was 5 in 1991,” explained Turk Turkleton. “Unless you're going to tell me that Bullwinkle won, I'm not going to know who the heck you're talking about.”

By far, the most common complaint was the long time delay for the announcement.

“You expect me to remember what some guy did in 1991?” asked Dwight Shrut, a salesman. “I can barely remember what the 2005 MVPs did.”

  1. Sadly, I’m not either of those tarts. I think I’d ask about too much actual baseball stuff to have Jimmy cuddle up to me, but I’d love the chance to find out.

    I don’t get it. You’ve got some bona fide hotties over there, but you’d cuddle up with Jimmy? What’s the appeal?

  3. I don’t know; I can’t explain it.

  4. Red Hot Mama says:

    Well, can you explain [url=]this[/url]? I’d like for someone to.

  5. Yes. That is photoshopped. We’ve seen ample examples that Jimmy loooooves the ladies. And, tragically, Bud Light.

  6. Red Hot Mama says:

    Best damn photoshop work I’ve ever seen. I need to track down whoever did it and get them to work on my book cover. Maybe make it look like I have a tan.
