See this cartoon here to the right? Remember how I drew it last year because Iron Chef Mooneyham had a kitchen mishap and was out for the year?
Now it’s irrelevant because Mooney is back and better than ever.
He’s technically a red shirt junior now even though he’s in his senior year of college due to his injury last season, but we’re not going to hold that sort of thing against him. He’s good at baseball, and that’s what matters.
He may or may not also be working on a senior thesis, and as a fellow history major I know how much time those consume, so be especially nice to him, okay? He may be under pressure right now if he didn’t do his thesis last semester.
If he is under pressure, though, he didn’t show it during the six innings he pitched today. He gave up three runs – two on a homer in the sixth, his last inning – and struck out eight. It was a return to his former glory.
We missed you, Mooney. You’re the best history major in the world besides me.
Here, check out this box score via CBSSports.com GameTracker (which I prefer vastly to having a Baseball Boyfriend, although if I had one I’d pick Mooney since we have things in common). Look at how dominant Stanford is. It’s insane.
This is a screencap. I took it. If you click on it, it will enlarge and become more legible.
Yeah. We’re good at baseball this year. Utter domination.
Here’s that Battle of Yavin .gif again, since I know it’s more likely than not that people reading this site know what the Battle of Yavin actually was:
