Whip it!


What the hell is this Nike ad campaign about?  Did they catch Mariano Rivera leaving a Chelsea sex club?  Is Mariano’s 2005 season being sponsored by an athletic goods maker or by Toys in Babeland?  Is Mo a sociopath who eats human livers?  Are Marsellus and Butch just outside the frame?  Someone help me out here…

  • It’s for Nike’s new optometry line. Mo gets bored out there in the bullpen, so he’s opening a Lenscrafters next to Monument Park next season. Anyone with a Stadium Club pass gets 50 percent off their first pair of frames.

  • Is it me, or does “Sox Fan” protesteth too much, in the Ophilia fashion. Me thinketh he does. As a five year survivor of the *real* Evil Empire (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology) I hereby recommend reprogramming for this obviously malfunctioning RedSuxCyborg[tm]. In the words of Eric Cartman: STOP YER BITCHIN!

  • What does that have to do with Mariano dressing up like a 21st century dominatrix?

  • I think you’re on the right track with the eating human livers angle. I’ve often suspected something like that about him. That evil glare of his always said “cannibalistic liver lover” to me.

  • Leave it to an MIT grad to write a brilliant response that completely misses the point …
