MLB photo day, f*ck yeah! And the music stops

The lifelong marathon that MLB photo day has become was going to continue once again this afternoon, but thanks to a cheerful cease and desist letter from some affable lawyers at Getty Images, the party is over.

Someone dropped the fucking beer.

We're not sure if it's because we used their images or if it's
because we commented on them honestly, but we'll leave the guessing to you.

This big, bad blog was just having too much damn fun.  For that alone, we should be ashamed.

Feel free to read through it anyway, nothing like sarcastic captions accompanied by invisible pictures.

And yes, "No Easy Way Out" is now the Hernia anthem for 2009.

Enjoy!

Randy Johnson hasn't been this happy since he killed that bird with a 99 mph fastball.  Kinda sums up MLB photo day in 2009.

Is this the dominant, highly fussed about Tim Lincecum or the kid from the
Mac commercials?  If you can't get a hit off this guy, just put your nuts in your wife's purse.

Brian Giles, one of few players to wisely opt for oral pleasure during photo day.

So this is the guy who squared off against Derek Lee in 2007 and whiffed on 56 consecutive windmill punch-slaps?  Makes perfect sense now.

If MLB fans know one true fact of life, it's certainly:  San Diego + beaches + hot chicks + drunken debauchery + wild Sabertooth arm hair = a brooding David Eckstein.

Field of Dreams starring Nick Schmidt?  Not exactly giving us goosebumps.  At least they got the attendance at PETCO Park right

We're pretty sure if Jerry Manuel was added to the barber shops scenes in "Coming To America", the staff there would welcome him with open arms.

    Geez, what happens when Getty Images gets some GOOD pictures, taken by a TALENTED photographer, of ATTRACTIVE people?

    I’ll bet a vein pops in their lawyer’s skull or something…

    Hey Now – Randy J actually looks better as red text. Keep that one high and tight.

    Getty is a dieing business – you’d think they’d let the bloggers advertise for them with their links. Oh well.

    They could have just ceased. Desisting was excessive.

    Eat a dick, Getty Images.

    And while I’m at it, fuck Estelle Getty, and fuck Irish antiquarian and naturalist Edmund Getty. Fuck his reclaiming of the slob-lands in County Down.

    I feel oddly relieved now that the Andy Pettitte picture no longer ocupies this site. I wonder how many of your readers went and checked on their kids after reading that post last weekend? Crispin Glover thinks that picture is creepy.
