Too many balls?
« Topic Start: September 18, 2007, 09:42:21 AM »
I'm going to the season ticket holder appreciation event tonight and was planning to bring 3 baseballs. But I've heard that may be waaaay too many. Did any of you attend this past weekend? How many autographs did you get? (Hey, I don't need starters--I'll more than be happy to have a ball signed by the Fickster!)

That line should be pretty empty, so I think you'll be fine w/ 3 balls.

Might have a slight balance problem, however.

Yeah, three balls just doesn't sound natural.

But I figure a ball signed by Fick doesn't carry much weight anyways.

Anytime you start talking about "balls", the potential for locker room humor exists.  Since 2IPA's is female, it's probably not something she is going to recognize as humor either.

Maybe it's just time to call out Salty on this one, and have him explain it to us.... :nono:

You could've just said "Fick's balls"

Most of us forum females are able to pick up on such word play, I suspect, but maybe your point was that we wouldn't think that it's funny?

Please, God, don't let there be visual aids involved... :)

Now you see, I was going for subtle here, nothing really bang you in the face overt.

Well, I remain open to the argument that we men aren't quite a subtle as we think we are sometimes.  But on your second point I agree without reserve, we definitely think we are funnier than women think we are, often.

To quote a certain cable guy: I don't care who you are, that's funny! :lol:

Damn, I leave for a few hours and all hell breaks loose. FYI--I was late to the season ticketholder event yesterday, so those balls will have to wait for spring training (or for the next National Geographic special or Beavis and Butthead rerun).
