A WoW Warning To All Grownup Rays Fans

What you see here is the replica AL Champions Ring being given to all fans at the April 14 home game. If you are over the age of 13 years and receive one of these, please heed the following.

***DO NOT WEAR THIS RING OUTSIDE OF YOUR BEDROOM***

First off. You weren't on the team. You wouldn't wear your neighbor's class ring, would you? Or your girlfriend's wedding ring? Exactly. So don't wear this.

Secondly, it commemorates the fact that the Rays came in second. I understand what an improvement that was for the club. I have not been in a coma. But they didn't win. That makes the already suspect idea of wearing a replica team ring just totally off limits. Don't do it. I'm looking at you, David Chalk.

If you're a kid and you're a Rays fan, by all means wear this thing out. It probably seems cool. Just beware you're setting yourself up for a lifetime of being happy with almost succeeding. And you know where that gets you doesn't it? Writing a sports blog.

DUDE YOU MADE THE FLASHY TEXT YOU ARE LIKE A JEANIUS.

Can I still wear my commemorative division series winners blue wig and cowbell necklace around town?

As a Phillies fan, I would like all Rays fans and or citizens of the Tampa/St. Pete DMA to know that I will pay HANDSOMELY for one of these beauties. I'm talking upwards of $5 here, people. You pay shipping.

That's almost as cool as seeing your home town team raise their wild card winner banner the year after they got swept out of the playoffs.

All the Mets got was this lousy rock.

Unless you are Iracane and you do this so someone will listen to you finally.

@Honeynut: April 14 is my birthday. This is the most giganticest LOLworthyest gift I could ever receive EVER. I NEED ONE OF THESE RINGS.

The is the promotional equivalent of a "participant" ribbon.

Just give out one of those schedule magnets, people will appreciate it more than a plastic 2nd place ring.

I bought an authentic one off E-bay. It is in near mint condition with the slight flaw of having "J. Gomes" engraved on it.

If ya came in second then you better put a ring on it
oh oh oh

Sadly, 'things adults simply do not do' apparently doesn't include hanging '16-0 regular season' banners.

As a grownup DEVIL Rays fan, I might consider wearing the ring because no team was better than 2nd best in MLB in 2008. The WFC* might not have "won" that World Series without Romero all high on the steroids he TWICE tested positive for during the '08 regular season.

So I bid $6, you pay shipping.

But I'm perfectly happy waiting for my 2009 WFC no asterisk Devil Rays ring.

Yes but Carl Crawford spent the entire season juiced up on applesauce and Quaaludes, so the two crimes cancel each other out.

You know, "We're Number 2!" just doesn't seem quite right...

16-0 Regular Season Record Occurrences in NFL History = 1

Number of AL Champions = 108

Let's not compare apples to plantains here

Second place = First loser

is it me or do you spend a lot of time assuring us you haven't been in a coma?

I figured a screencap of Rosie O'Donnell tripping and falling on her face would make up for it.
