[Insert Gay Joke Here] Joe Mauer Is Elton John’s Favorite Catcher

elton-john

I have little to add to this story than what was covered in Charlie Waters’ column in the St. Paul Pioneer Press and later touched on in a post over on Mouthpiece Sports, but here we go.

Apparently, Elton John is a big baseball fan, as (I guess) evidenced by the above photo and this one, and recently he sent word to the Minnesota Twins that he would be happy to exchange a couple of autographs of his in exchange for autographs from Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau.

Rock legend Elton John, a big baseball fan, requested autographed pictures of the Twins’ Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau, and in exchange provided autographed pictures of himself.

John told Mauer he’s the best catcher in the major leagues and said he wished Morneau played for the Atlanta Braves, of whom John is a big fan.

Awk-ward.

I, for one, cannot wait for another re-working of Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind” dedicated to Mauer called “Catcher in My End.”

No, wait. Maybe that wouldn’t be such a good idea.

(shudders)

Let us never speak of this again.
