View Full Version : MLB bans water.

Two signs on the doors leading from the visitors' clubhouse at U.S. Cellular Field to the first-base dugout read, "NO BOTTLED WATER ON THE BENCH."
What's this? Athletes can't drink water? Even in the humid Chicago summers?
Here's the explanation I got:
Gatorade is Major League Baseball's "official sports drink." So instructions were sent that no player could be seen drinking anything but Gatorade in the dugout. Not even Aquafina, which is the "official water" of MLB. Not even bottles of water with the labels removed.
White Sox clubhouse personnel said if players take bottled water onto the bench, all the bottled water will be removed from the clubhouse as punishment.
So remember, the biggest threat to baseball isn't steroids or HGH or amphetamines or runaway ticket prices or four-hour games.
It's water.

I imagine they just have to drink their water out of Gatorade cup or something, still kinda silly. Gatorade: Its got electrolytes.

idiotic. I'd at the very least and bring down a god damn water cooler and make a fuss about this stupid rule. Fuck that cordial stuff, real men drink water.

Unless it was in my multimillion dollar contract, in which case, I will drink water when I get home.

Thank you!!!! Baseball is like Tetris, it's really hard at the highest levels, but it's not a real video game. It's just for wee little girls and fancy pants Russians. Fuck Tetris and baseball!

This thread was over a month old and you're trying to convince us you're not retarded?

I heard an ad for I think taco time or taco bell (one of the shitty taco branches) that was in the style of Powerthirst. I damn near rammed my shitty car into a taco time out of spite.

MEGA-JESUS, you really are just a little emo-kid at the end of the day. I am so VERY disappointed in you. Here I was ready to dive into the depths of your subconscious and came up with splashing in a puddle.

Ozmex walks all over anywhere I've been to. And it's run by an Argentinian. People are supposed to hate Argentinians more than anything, however my real hate lies towards a particular Chilean. No, not Pinochet. Some little greasy backpacker. I hope to break his legs one day at the shin and see how much backpacking he gets in then.

What's the use you learning to do right, when it's troublesome to do right and ain't no trouble to do wrong, and the wages is just the same?

That is the existential dilemma I find myself in.

Now if only I could find some hippies to choke out.

HA! Violent hippy or not, those dreadlocks provide a good handle for headlocks. And a diet deficient in animal proteins makes them weaker than me. Plus if they smoke ganja before the bout they'll be putty in my hands.
