It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!!!
Screw Christmas and Easter and whatever holiday you hold in high esteem because this right here is the real deal, it’s Opening Day folks and that is something worth getting excited over. Like we’ve done with holidays (including James Bond day) before, let’s head to Pinterest and see what goodies it has in store!
Right off the bat (see what I did there?), something weird. A skull made of the baseball cover – odd, but I’d be okay with owning one.
I do not wear high heels. I rarely wear shoes. Even given those two statements, I might be convinced to don a pair of these heels fashioned in the likeness of a baseball. Might. Okay who are we kidding? There is no way in hell I’d wear these but they still look cool.
However if anyone was in the mood to make me a cake (hey, it could happen), I’d be really okay with this one. It’s even got complementary cupcakes down below. So cute.
If you are the overachiever type, then you probably should go ahead and build yourself a baseball themed table to display your baseball themed cake and cupcakes on. I mean anything less would be gauche. You don’t want to be “that woman/guy” do you? Didn’t think so.
If I were planning my wedding now, and could have somehow convinced my mother and husband that this needed to happen, I would have totally gone for the baseball themed reception. As it was we stopped at Busch Stadium for pictures so really baseball invitations were the logical next step. But I’m not and they wouldn’t so it’s a non-issue but still these are pretty cute.
Today might be the greatest day of all but we all know that the dark days without baseball wait for us in the fall. What better way to try and recapture some of that magic than a baseball pumpkin for Halloween?
The best thing about Pinterest is you can find some random things that you might miss otherwise. This would be a great example of that.
If you’ve ever wanted to know how many people were posting pictures to Instagram from various ballparks through May of 2012, well here’s the infographic just for you! I will say I’m sort of surprised that Turner Field is so high on that list but I suppose there really wasn’t a whole lot happening game wise so people had plenty of free time.
There is also quite a bit of fun stuff to be found while perusing various pinterest boards. I came across this one which tickled me, especially the Dodgers “beer”.
It’s a bit small but if you click on this link it will take you to the pin where it is larger. Very funny and probably the most accurate is the Padres. Poor Padres, no one ever really talks about them and they are quite a fun team to watch.
You can also find things that make you shake your head.
Not only did someone think this was a good idea, they got another person to agree it was a good idea, and then I’m assuming yet another person willing to stake their reputation on the production of this ridiculousness. Needless to say, my crew will not be donning baseball uniforms no matter how excited I am by Opening Day.
Then you go from the ridiculous to downright hysterical.
That would be a book about “Baseball’s Great Teams” and it’s about the Chicago Cubs. Because we all know, when you think of great teams, you first think of the Chicago Cubs.
Of course for every truly ludicrous thing found on Pinterest, there is something of beauty.
