Wily Mo Pena Is Still Alive an Still Murdering Baseballs

I loved this video for two reasons:

1.) Not only is former Cincinnati Red Wily Mo Pena still alive, he’s still mashing baseballs 400 feet. Who cares if it’s in some weirdo Japanese league? Wily Mo is still getting paid to play ball while the rest of us rot away in an uncomfortable chair copy/pasting all day. Never stop chasing the dream, Wily.

2.) Japanese baseball looks a billion times more fun than America’s pastime. The crazy Asian gameshow graphics, pink stuffed teddy bears, the giant flags in the stands, announcers shouting at the top of their lungs. Am I watching a mid August baseball game or a World Cup final? Maybe I’m being a wet blanket because I haven’t been that excited for a Reds baseball game in months, but the Japanese game looks about as fun as every baseball game I’ve ever been to combined.

About Q-Ball

Owner, operator Queencitybeerleague.com. AKA The Commish. Q-Ball is that asshole at the office who refuses to brew a fresh pot of coffee. Not because he doesn't want to, he's just too embarrassed to admit that he doesn't know how.
