If you were hanging out by the player’s exit at Yankee Stadium yesterday evening, you were in for quite a treat. Sadly, I live a good 3 hours away (by plane) and was not able to be there, but alas, there is a thing called the internet that let me enjoy this moment of humiliation as much as the next person. I always thought hazing was for college students trying to become part of a sorority or fraternity, but this is a wonderful example of how hazing goes beyond the classroom and into the ball park.
As White Sox players began to come out of the stadium and enter their bus, along came other players dressed in very incriminating outfits. Lance Broadway, a right handed rookie pitcher, was unfortunate enough to be dawned the wearer of the voluptuous lifeguard with severe pubic hair issues. Alexei Ramirez was dressed as a US track and field athlete. Other rookies sported a Tinkie Winkie (Of the Teletubbies) costume and a Raggedy Anne outfit.

Any relation to Woody Woodpecker? Carlos Quetnin is either in dire need of a head examination or has a sad and frightening fixation with wood. However, it’s completely excusable because the 25 year old left fielder for the Chicago White Sox is leading the MLB in home runs. Keep chomping on that maple, buddy!
Quentin likes his wood polished.
Yesterday, when I got out of bed, I had a good feeling that it was going to be the day that I say hello to my new Jeter’s and Hanley’s; but by the time I got out of work, I had completely forgotten about all the cards. Cut me some slack, people. I was exhausted! After work, I had to run some errands, you know, go to the bank, pick up the munchkin, so on and so forth; and then I get a call from my husband. “Babe, you better hurry, there is a package here for you.” My eyes lit up, I dropped everything! I almost forgot to go pick up my son!!!
When I got home, I ran to the counter… and there was no envelope. I ran to the dresser in our bedroom… nothing. “Hi honey, I was just kidding about the package.” I had never been so sad and mad at the same time. I felt like a little kid. I was pretty bitter. Within minutes, after my little temper tantrum, Mario came up next to me with my Jeter binder and a nice bulk package from WhiteSox Cards. I was beyond thrilled! …and I felt a bit guilty for the tantrum; but boy! I’ve never torn through an envelope so fast!
Just want to say thank you for the awesome Jeter’s. Just one double, but everything else I didn’t have. Now, to complete the Jeter puzzle from 2006 Upper Deck “Play Ball With Jeter”. I have the letter E, I need the other 4 letters! If anyone has them and doesn’t want to hold on to thm any longer… send me an email! 🙂

Thanks, again for contributing to my collection. ❤
After reading WhiteSoxCards’ blog two days ago, I have been coming home anticipating the arrival of my Hanley’s and Jeter’s. And for the last two days, I have run to my mailbox and have been faced with disappointment. Damn, my post office for being so lame! I can’t help but to get excited. As soon as these cards come in, my collection will have grown a little bit more and my smile will have widened. I can’t wait to get my hands on the 2007 – Allen & Ginter Dick Perez Sketch Card! Hell, I can’t wait to get my hands on any of them! Hopefully, when I go running down my drive way today to grab the mail, there will be more awaiting me than a few bills and Mario’s XBOX360 subscription.
