Let’s take a short jog down memory lane, shall we?
The month was May, and Dan Uggla couldn’t hit a baseball to save his ugly, stupid, annoying faux hawk’s life. Braves fans everywhere were getting pissy about the fact that @fauxfrankwren signed Sir Biceps of the Smedium Jersey to an extension without ever having seen him play in an Atlanta uniform. I took to calling him #struggla, one fan made an ill-advised bet with his buddy. Not a wager involving money, beer, or other such things. No, it was much more serious than that, it was…
A slap bet.
Spoiler alert: dude gets slapped in the face. And that is never not funny.
Thank you, Dan Uggla, for sucking just enough early in the year to give me a reason to post this video. If you had been just a tiny bit better, or earlier in getting hot, maybe the Braves would’ve lost in the first round of the playoffs instead of choking away a chance at the postseason.
Who am I kidding? It was all Fredi’s fault. #managemanagemanagemanage
