50 Year-Olds Love Beer, Apparently


ageless.jpgJust when you thought he was done sports fan.  Just when you thought, man Dad can barely get out of bed in the morning, this guy must be washed up.  But the man will not die.  He will not quit.  No, Robert Parish will not be rejoing the Celtics, but Julio Franco is a Brave again. 

Julio has never been shy with the media either, as he talked with an anonymous Atlanta source this evening.  Asked to elaborate on why he wants to keep playing baseball, Franco was quoted as saying:

Baseball been very good to me.  Pancakes have been very good to me as well.  Let me not forget beer, without which, I might still look like I’m 46.

That’s right, Franco rejoined the Bravos hoping that he will score some free tickets for the all you can drink beer nights.  Don’t let the prospect of playing ’til age 50 fool you, this man is just looking for a free drink. 

No more Mad Dog hidden in Gatorade cups on the bench.  He’ll have a waitress delivering cold Coors Light by the tray full down in the dugout.  And what if he has to play first that day?  Big deal.  If he falls over drunk people will just think he had a heart attack.  So we salute Franco for not giving in to public pressure to just hang them up this year.  You keep on playing Julio and play baseball like John Daly plays golf.  Go a beer an inning big dog.

    I’ll save him a seat, but he’s paying for his own AYCD.

    Well, I guess the cop can stop the investigation for a little while longer.
