A Shelf-Clearing Brawl

Man, I sure wish that the Yankees-Rays game had been broadcast on today. Don't you?'re in luck.

I've gone all DIY again. It's no Leg0-Vision...but just remember that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Allow me to present:

Knick-Knack Attack

A precise re-creation of the infamous Yankees-Rays Brawl of '08.

Yankee Shelley Duncan (played by my A.J. Pierzynski bobble-head...fittingly), slides into second base.

But then, like a bitch, Duncan decided to get revenge on the Rays for a sliding mishap last week by trying to spike Akinori Iwamura in the groin.

"ちょっと彼は穹稜の私を打ちつけることを試みた!!!" Aki yelled.

Jonny Gomez heard Aki's cry, and flew in from the outfield to smack Duncan around a little.

"Hey you punk ass Yankee, take this!"

Soon there was full-blown fisticuffs, and Gomes was making Duncan cry like a little girl with skinned knees.

So Jason Bartlett (played by, who else, my Little Piranha Finger Puppet) came over to try to keep Gomes from committing homicide.

"If you keep this up, I'm gonna have to fight too, and I'm way too pretty to die!" yelled Bartlett, pulling Gomes off Duncan.

But it was too late, and it quickly errupted into a bench-clearer. The Doug Mientkiewicz bobble-head (AKA Rays pitcher Andy Sonnanstine) tried to break things up, but it took a while.

Once the dust settled, the umpire gave Yankee manager Joe Girardi (the whiny baby Cabbage Patch Doll) and coach Tony Pena a stern talking to, after ejecting a bazillion players and coaches from the game.

I saw a clip of it on the Florida news was epic. Barty was awesome.

The last panel is especially a stroke of genius. I laughed so hard at the pic even before I knew who they represented. Good work!
