Mascot

Last night there was a llama at my softball game. Seriously. Some guy was walking his llama around the parking lot of our softball field. We’ve been playing at this field for 6 years now. Just last year someone looked across the street and noticed gigantic birds in this guy’s backyard. He had a flock of Ostriches. Either Ostriches or Emus. Now apparently he’s moved on to llamas. Anyway, he was walking the llama when someone hit a foul ball in it’s direction. The llama freaked out and broke loose. He was running around the field then he noticed one of the guys on the other team had brought his family. The llama ran over and ate the guy’s baby. OK, maybe that’s a lie, but there was seriously a llama at my softball game last night.

I am so gullible. When I read the part about it eating the baby I was like "SHIT!"

This must be why all my friends play tricks on me

Melissa said...

i am a little ashamed to say, but I was exactly the same!! I really thought it ate the baby!

Llamas are really cute in a weird ugly kind of way

Yeah, you had me going there for a minute...

Damn I have never had anything like that happen at any of my games. The worst thing that happens is someone's windshield gets broken. You would think playing 5 nights a week the odds are of something weird happening are high, But nooooooo, boring

Must be nice to have such a revered Buddhist leader visit your game.

they were only going to the dentist.

note: if you didn't grow up with sesame street and don't know the llama dentist song then...my comment means nothing to you.

"Some guy was walking his llama around the parking lot of our softball field."

Is that a euphamism of some sort?

sarah - I really had no story to go along with the fact that there was a llama at my game. Glad I could fool you.

meme - yeah, in a half horse, half dog, half camel kinda way.

chuck - thanks.


ss - you must not be playing at the right places. Aliens abducted us once last year.


jackt - you think it was the dali llama?

iat - nope, don't follow you. But I'm sure I'll learn it soon enough.

pix - No, but I think it was a child predatory lure of some sort.

And people say nothing really happens at softball games - they've no clue.

Melissa said...

Did it eat its food? That stupid, freakin' llama? Did it eat its food? Gosh!

Does that mean we'll probably see the Llama on Dateline's To Catch a Predator?

Brookelina said...

I loved that story. Seriously.

Tim:
I used to live next to Llamas. Don't they spit tobacco? Maybe I'm thinking of camels.

"Tina! Come get some ham!"

Spot the reference anyone?
