Just because: The Hanshin Tigers vs. Colonel Sanders

First, the decidedly “apropos of ies.Newcastle have immediately sent out feelers for potential managerial candidates after announcing Rafa Benitez is leaving the club.TMW says Gattuso is on their shortlist, though is yet to hear from Toon reps.While in charge of Milan, Gattuso was lnothing” backstory … Back in 1985 the Hanshin Tigers of Japan’s Central League won their loop’s equivalent of our World Series (the Japan Championship Series). According to timeless lore, fans of the newly minted champions celebrated by gathering on the Ebisubashi Bridge in Osaka and calling out each player’s name. In keeping with obvious common sense, when each player’s name was called, a fan who at least vaguely resembled that player jumped into the Dotonbori River. 

Anyhow, cosmic affliction was set in motion when the name of American-born first baseman Randy Bass was intoned. You see, no one in attendance quite looked like Mr. Bass. Lucky-happily, there was a nearby Kentucky Fried Chicken dining establishment, and said establishment had on its premises a statue of Colonel Sanders, America’s favorite member of the landed gentry.

These being ebullient Tigers rooters and these also being streets of fire, the mob set upon the statue of Colonel Sanders because of its unassailble resemblance to Mr. Bass. As you’ll soon see, both were bearded men of Western extraction …

Mr. Bass’s half of the photo is more critical of his performance than himself.The United legend is now tasked with leading his beloved club in his first full season as manager.Solskjaer knows there will be a lot of expectation and pressure from fans and pundits.But he believes is helpfuly captioned so as to prevent any (quite understandable) confusion.

Anyhow, these wilding Tigers fans on those aforementioned streets of fire, plucked the good Colonel from his moorings and tossed him into the river, whereupon he sank to the murky depths. Meanwhile, the vengeful spectral presence of the actual Colonel Sanders looked on with mounting contempt. As the story goes, he declared from beyond the grave that thentus midfielder Claudio Marchisio told Paul Pogba he was wrong to quit Turin for Manchester United.Pogba opted to make the move back to Old Trafford after four successful seasons with Italian giants Juve, rejoining United in a club-record £89million Hanshin Tigers would never again win the Series until their fans made redress for befouling his graven image.

For the next quarter century or so, the Tigers failed to win another championship and often finished in last or next-to-last place in the standings. And then finally, in 2009, after several failed attempts at Colonel retrieval, …

Rescue! No more shall the Colonel rest in the briny deepness like a forgotten Spanish galleon! Possible absolution!

As it turns out, though, the Tigers still haven’t won the series since the Colonel was fished out of the Dotonbori. Some might wield this fact as evidence there was never any curse. Right-thinking types, however, will point to it as evidence the Colonel continues to smolder from his heavenly rocking chair and has not yet decided to show mercy.

As for the statue, grainy YouTube footage, which is nothing if not admissible and incontrovertible evidence, suggests . 

Worth noting is that , which in that sense makes it no different from or .

So what have we learned today? This …

LSU outfielder Raph Rhymes set a school record by hitting .431 last year, a performance that earned him SEC Player of the Year and First-Team All-American honors. On Thursday he hit an inside-the-park homer thanks to some shoddy outfield defense, but he had to go through the catcher first:
