Rally Specs

I’ve gotta be honest here. If you saw my last post, you’ll see that I may or may not have gotten a little time on MLB. I won’t lie; I don’t hate the tv time. Finally! ESG: making a name for myself, doing big things, saving eyes lives. I mean, I’m not expecting a call from Steven Spielberg anytime soon {Stevie, baby, have your people call my people}, but it is definitely nice to be recognized.

On another note, it has come to my attention that there is a growing trend amongst A’s (and Eric Sogard) fans. It may not be as big as the Bernie *yet*, but it’s much, much better than planking. Rally Specs. Remember that silly thing you used to do with your hands as a kid? Where you flip your hands upside down and give yourself glasses? Welp, it turns out that mindless little hand gesture has become a legit way to show your Sogard support! While slightly less dangerous and much less exhausting than “Balfour Raging”, the Rally Specs are slowly making their mark at the Coliseum.

Seriously, the A’s have the BEST fans! My face and I can’t wait to get back to the Coliseum to see all of the Rally Specs, and of course to win some baseball games. Tweet Eric (or Kaycee) your best Rally Specs pictures and his favorites may make their way into a future post!

Until next time, keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Unless that enemy’s a Giants fan.
