As we have a tendency to do here at D4L, we like to deflect any and all negativity. LOOK HOW TERRIBLE THIS IAN KINSLER SLIDE WAS LAST NIGHT [via DShep25]:   Here's how our Friday morning coffee-maker convo will go, okay?  Hungover fan: Did you see the Verlander-Darvish game last night?  Still-drunk fan:  Yeah, dude - oh man, did you seeeee that Kinsler slide??  Hungover fan who wants everyone to know just how hungover he really is: [laughs] Yeah. What an iiiiiiiiidiot! Just like we were idiots for ordering that last round of peppermint patties, right guys?  Still-drunk fan: It's, like, ex-squeeze me, have you ever done a headfirst slide before?  Hungover fan: Head definitely first. How does an athlete do that? I mean, I understand how Still-drunk fan fell like that last night, but Ian ******' Kinsler? Still drunk fan: [laughs] Yeah... wait, what?  Hungover fan who wants everyone to know just how hungover he really is:  [laughs] You fell last night... you know what, guys? My head hurts ...  Hungover fan: [laughs] Ian Kinsler probably too.  [They all share a good laugh] [Co-worker everyone hates approaches; laughter dies down; everyone's uncomfortable; co-worker everyone hates steps between the Hungover fan and Hungover fan who wants everyone to know just how hungover he really is to grab a cup of coffee] Hungover fan who wants everyone to know just how hungover he really is:  Excuse you, Steve. Too early and HUNGOVER to be pushed aside like that.  Co-worker everyone hates: [pulls coffee cup out and up slowly to his stupid ******* lips, stops before sipping and looks up] Sorry, mang ... hey, what the **** is wrong with Verlander, you guys?
