Oakland A’s learn the value of having a strong Colon (headline)
Haha. Yeah, cracking jokes about headline writers cracking jokes about how it’s funny that there is a major league pitcher who has the last name “Colon” is pretty played out, but how else but making a reference to the above headline about a “strong Colon” would have granted me the pleasure of embedding the classic SNL commercial for “Colon Blow”? Because if there’s one thing that would make for a strong Colon, it would be a few bowls of Colon Blow. Perhaps even Super Colon Blow, but that’s a different story altogether.
See? We all win when Phil Hartman makes an appearance.
Note: It warrants mentioning that at one point during his dominant performance, Bartolo Colon threw 38 straight strikes. Impressive.
