Looking through TC Goggles

I was looking at the pictures of Joe Crede's first day with the Twins in Ft Myers, and I was immediately struck by the fact that Crede got a lot hotter, seemingly overnight.  At first I was amazed, and wondered "did he have work done? Because he looks great!" But after letting it sink in for a few minutes, I realized what was happening.

It's possible that, to bastardize a How I Met Your Mother quote, Joe Crede just stopped being evil, and started being adorable instead.  However, it is far more likely that I was, for the first time, simply looking at Joe Crede through what I can only call "TC Googles."  




It is a scientific fact that an individual looks approximately 38% more attractive when they're wearing the Twins logo.  Joe Crede is living proof.  He wasn't exactly unfortunate before becoming a full-fledged Twin, but NOW....he is definitely 37-39% hotter.  

And obviously, the high-socks don't hurt his case.  In fact, that's one of the major benefits of the Twins signing Crede.  With Neshek out for another season, Joe Crede can help us meet that important high-sock quota.  

I do have a pressing question about the addition of Joe Crede.  What the heck are we going to call him?  We can't call him Joe, because we already have Joe Mauer.  We can't even use the Elementary School method of differentiating between two kids with the same name--using their last initial--because there's only enough room in the Twins universe for ONE Joe C.  I even scoured the internet for any cool nicknames he uses, but I came up empty.  I did find one site that said his nickname is "Joe."  Very unhelpful.  I suppose I can just run his first and last names together, like I do for Brian Buscher.  He is never Brian, nor Buscher.  He is refered to as Brian-Buscher, almost exclusively.  Except, when I run Joe-Crede together, it sounds like "Joke Reedy."  And that's not that cool.  I guess I will just have to be on the lookout for potential nickname material.  Right now I'm thinking "Spanky" or "High Socks McGee," but that's really only because it's late and I'm sleep deprived and a little loopy.

In other news, be sure to check out the latest episode of the Baseball Happy Hour Podcast for a great look at the '09 Brewers with MarioKart Tony.  

It's good to keep up with the Brewers so that we can better know how to annihilate them during Interleague.  ....And root for them the rest of the time.  Also, I say inappropriate things about Bernie Brewer.  Which is like my 12th favorite hobby.

I recently discovered this blog, and have to say I am absolutely addicted. It's nice to hear from some ladies who care about all the little details as much as me! :D Keep it up!

You forget there is also Joe Nathan. I think this our year of "Joe's" apparently. Two years ago is was Jason's...what's next?

Katie said...

Yeah...Joe Nathan is pretty much just Joe-Nathan by default because if you say "Joe" everyone's mind flips immediately to Mauer.

that is true about Joe Nathan. I think I always use his full name when referring to him...unless I see him on tv. In which case, i usually get excited that his beautiful face is in front of me.

My thoughts exactly! Glad someone else appreciates the high socks as much as me!

Yes! A new High-Socker! Brendan Harris had to fill that role last year (with the occasional Gomez), But now it is Crede's role to rock the socks :)

I call Joe Nathan "JoeNate" or maybe "Tall Cool Drink Of Water" or just "Tall Cool" for short...
Joe Mauer has become "JoeMa"...
We definitely need a good nickname for the new "Joe"

I dub Joe Creede "Joe C and the Pussycats!"

i used to refer to Joe Crede by shaking my fist in the air and hissing through my teeth, a la seinfield to newman, "creeedeee"... now with the added 37% hotness factor and the absence of needed loathing, i do believe i'll stick with his last name, minus the hissing and fist shaking. you have to admit, it's a great last name.

Funny, I, too, have just noticed that Joe Crede is cute.
