So, it's time for my all time favorite trivia question for anyone as bored (or drunk) as me lol:


Tommy Lasorda is the godfather of which former MLB catcher:

A-Alex Avila

B-Mike Piazza



Mike Piazza. Please. :-?

:lol: What? No weed?

Btw, I’m sitting here on my toilet taking a really good dump. Ahhhhhh :meditate:


Na, you're wrong, my brother


I wouldn't waste your guys time with something stupid like a trivia question everyone would know.


Alex Avila's grandfather was a Dodger scout and good friend of Lasorda's. His grandson Alex Thomas Avila is Lasorda's godson and holds a middle name after him.


Mike Piazza's brother, Tommy (named after Lasorda) is also a Godson of his. But he's NOT Mike's godfather

As far as Mike Piazza goes? Gotta tell you guys a true story. When I was in college someone apparently told these 2 HS girls that I was Mike Piazza. So there I am in my dorm room and I hear this knock on the door. I open it and there's these 2 teen girls dressed all tramp like standing at my door. I'm looking at them like "who the heck are you guys" but in a more horn dog sorta way. They ask me if I'm "Mike Piazza". Know I knew who Piazza was at the time, he had just been drafted. So I was like "uh, yeah". Then a whole bunch of other things happened and yeah...funny.

:lol: My man! Details! Video?

My buddies and I would go to a Long Island bar during the summer and pretend we were Mets players. I was Wally Backman. Someone who I thought they wouldn't know. It never worked. :lol:

i was at an upper east side bar and this couple was CONVINCED i was ryan howard. i told them several times that i was not. i was wearing a mets cap and they thought it was a disguise. they wouldn't shut up about it. they started buying rounds and offering to me.

they left me alone after a while but still had the de niro meme look as they left.

to be fair, we are about the same age and build. and i do KIND of look like him. but it was a weird experience.

Ryan Howard? :lol: You must be one big man. I've seen Ryan Howard up close from when I lived in Philly. 6'4" 250+ lbs.

I was at a strip club once and this couple was laughing and pointing at me from across the bar and then bought me a drink. Turns out they thought I looks just like Elliot Spitzer. Maybe it was context in which they saw me. :lol:

:lol: spitzer WOULD be there.

and i think that ryan howard incident might be the only time white folks have given me a "you look like [insert big black man i know of]" and i was like... "ok, you got me there." our dimensions are pretty much exact and i could see the similarity in our faces. we are about the same age. it was understandable to cross their minds... but it made no sense for ryan howard to be in that bar and wearing a mets cap. they thought they had THE SCOOP!

Trade in that Mets hat for a Phillies hat and head down to Philly when you and boys are ready for a weekend away from the women. Let me know when you do in case you need Elliot Spitzer as your wingman. :lol:

the draft is happening right now and the mets are a few picks away from making their selection.

they also have 4 picks in the top 100(19th, 52nd, 69th, and 91st)

so that's good.

Crow-Armstrong was rated the 10th-best prospect in the 2020 draft by Law, who wrote, “Multiple scouts have told me he’s the best defensive outfielder in the class, a future 70 glove in center field who’s also a 60 runner and has a plus arm. At the plate, he’s gotten quite a bit stronger since last summer, and was making consistently hard contact this spring before Harvard-Westlake ended its season.”
