Next Yankees Crossover: A.J. Burnett Meets Harlem Globetrotters!

| | Comments (12)


Members of the Yankees have been quite busy since winning the World Series last (sigh) November. But while Nick Swisher got to be on How I Met Your Mother, A.J. Burnett only got to meet the Harlem Globetrotters (above).

As you can see, the members of the Globetrotters are all shrugging their shoulders as if to say, "What? We're on a ten-thousand game winning streak here and the best we could get was A.J. Burnett? He had a postseason ERA of 5.27!" Or something like that.

I don't see Flight Time or Big Easy.

A.J. got the Globetrotters B-team.

... I don't know any of the Harlem Globetrotters by name.

Pitchers in the Globetrotter uniform have really gone down hill. We had "Bullet" Bob Gibson, then "Fergie" Jenkins, and now "Average Jones" Burnett.

Sorta makes sense, considering the Generals play out in Flushing.

Today's Globetrotters couldn't carry Meadowlark Lemon's or Curly Neal's jock.

They're also really shitty crime solvers

Colonel outed himself as an Amazing Race watcher, those two were on the show last year. DOWN WITH SAM AND DAN


The Colonel would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those meddling kids!

A lot of people have been complaining about officiating in MLB the last few years. "Oh, Kenny Rogers has black stuff on his hand....that Mauer hit was fair not foul!" But have you guys seen the kind of shit the Globetrotters get away with in their games? Baseball fans should count their lucky stars they don't have the kind of officiating blunders the Generals have had to deal with on a daily basis.

Whew, for a second I was starting to think I was racist...

Whew, for a second I was starting to think I was racist...

That is my new litmus test for racism.

"Name the current starting point guard for the Harlem Globetrotters."

I won't believe this photo is legit until I see Burnett celebrate a game winning hit by throwing a bucket of confetti on a teammate.

A-Rod was going to come until he found out that Sweet Georgia Brown was their entrance music, not a stripper from Augusta.
