Aaron Hill and Russ Adams, infielders for the Toronto Blue Jays, noticed that pitchers Roy Halladay was spending a lot of time with A.J. Burnett, his new training partner. So Hill and Adams had them a couple of t-shirts printed up with Burnett’s and Halladay’s pictures on them, and under the pictures were the words “Brokeback Mound.”
That’s not bad. I think the Brokeback Mountain jokes have pretty much run their course, but… you that’s not bad for a couple of Toronto relief pitchers. But it pales in comparison to the revenge had by Halladay and Burnett.
Step 1: Halladay and Burnett hired a plane to fly over the field before a game with a sign that read, “Aaron, will you marry me? I love you. Russ.”
Step 2: They arranged for Hill and Adams to be married. Really. They decorated the clubhouse with wedding decorations, hired a caterer, a DJ, a videographer, had wedding gifts and everything. Hill’s car had blue and white balloons all over it, with signs, including one that said, “Watch us turn two later tonight.”
Step 3: During a game against the Phillies yesterday, a plane flew overhead that said, “Congratulations, Aaron and Russ.”
I might have a new favorite baseball team.
