This isn’t exactly sports media and you’ve probably seen a fair share of rain delay videos, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t proudly say that I graduated from Davidson College in 2008 and played on the baseball team, so this is near and dear to my heart. I might also be able to add a little something extra on rain delay antics.
First, here’s the video via Tosh.0:
These type of shenanigans never happened while I was at Davidson unfortunately, but we didn’t just sit around and twiddle our thumbs. We’d play pepper, flip, pseudo-pebble tennis or whatever that game with a cup and a fake pebble was called, and other random things. Sometimes we’d tape up an old baseball, start a game of tic-tac-toe or draw up a hypothetical trade, and throw it to the other dugout. They’d either play their turn in tic-tac-toe/counter the trade offer, or just write “No” and toss it back. Good times. But, man, I wish I got a chance to partake in the above. The moose hunting and curling are instant classics, as was Clemson’s tanning bed. If I had a shot at this I’d probably suggest, hmmmm, an aerobics class, a Beyonce music video, mock surgery or … I don’t know?! I don’t think it gets much better than human curling – and it’s less demented than the human centipede.
