2010 Card-vent Calendar: December 14

2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes #99 Robin Yount Purple Parallel (12/25)

Anybody out there watching Survivor this season? You might know a little about it, just because former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson was a contestant for a few shows before being given the boot. Well, I'm knee-deep in this season, and I've found that the producers made a grave mistake from the get-go. First of all, They actually had two guys named "Jimmy." The other one was a loudmouth douchebag from Jersey or something. Everyone actually hated him more than Johnson, but the threat of celebrity made them keep the nobody Jimmy around for a week or two longer.
Second, there were also two women named "Kelly" on the show. One of the Kellys had one real leg and one fake leg, and the other Kelly had two real legs. For some asinine reason, they called One-Leg Kelly "Kelly B." (or something like that, some initial not worth looking up), and they called Two-Leg Kelly "Purple Kelly" because at the show's onset, she had a small amount of purple color in her blonde hair. Show developments led to One-Leg Kelly being voted off, leaving Two-Leg Kelly as the lone Kelly in the game. For some stupid reason, host Jeff Probst continues to refer to Two-Leg Kelly as "Purple Kelly," even though there is no longer any reason to do so. Just call her "Kelly."

All of this leads, naturally, to the purple glory to behold that is ROBIN YOUNT. Damn... motherfucker looks great in purple. Great! GRRRRRRRRR-REAT!
There have only been a small handful of men throughout history that could pull off purple:
*Alexander the Great
*Kobe Bryant
*Rutherford B. Hayes
*Menachem Begin
*Danny Glover

Robin Yount, you are a purple god among men. I promise not to call you "Purple Robin."

P.S. If you didn't just about piss yourself at Danny Glover, you completely lack any sense of humor.

I get the Danny Glover reference, but Rutherford B. Hayes...

Is that a play on words? Purple Hayes?

I would add Alan Page, but that might be frowned upon.
