The New Substitute for Smokeless Tobacco …..Really!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Well, okay, not really.  But haven’t you noticed that ever since MLB “recommended” limiting use of tobacco on the field and in the dugout there’s been ever so slight a change?   Some day they’re going to ban tobacco in any form much the same as they’ve banned those nasty PED’s, and that’s a good thing.

But, in the meantime, here’s a few guys that have decided to do something about it and it looks like they’re thoroughly enjoying themselves in the process, setting an example for the youngsters to boot.  It must feel pretty good to sit without having that can of crud sticking you in the behind and following you everywhere you go.   And imagine having to walk through that nasty dugout with spit and chew and spit sticking to your cleats, not to mention the smell.    Have at it boys ~ it’s bubblicious all the way!  And that’s a good thing.

Farewell my little Friend …..

A tribute to my little Pomeranian, Snoopitu, who went to heaven today.  My heart is grieving.

“My pain and suffering came to an end, 
so don’t cry for me, my person my friend.

But think of the living –
those souls with fur 
(some who bark and some who purr)- 
And though our bond can’t be broken apart, 
make room for another in your home and your heart.”

Snoopitu was named after his predecessor, Snoopy I.  He was 12 1/2 years old and the smartest, most loving and kind dog in the world.  He ate like a little pig to the end and if it hadn’t been for his collapsing trachea and little useless bum back legs, he could have lived forever.   No words can express the grief of losing him, but if you’ve ever gone through this, no words are necessary.

Farewell my dear, dear friend.
