Noodle Arm Night

One of the many things I love about living in Las Vegas and being from Ohio is finding Midwest deals. Let me define. A Midwest deal is a “special” that a bar or venue has that would resemble something you would find somewhere in the midwest. A popular Midwest “special” would be something along the lines of dollar night. To date, there are 6 “Dollar Beer” nights left at the Las Vegas 51’s games. The 51’s are the triple A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, formerly the Los Angeles Dodgers. It is $9 for a ticket and then all the goodness of Bud and Budlight (Diesel and Unleaded to the college person) you can drink for $1 a beer. I don’t even care if your like baseball, a dollar is a dollar any way you cut it. There isn’t much more you can ask for except for an exceptional ending. For your information I have yet to remember exactly how a game has ended. With that being said, what, you might ask, could make this better? Please let me elaborate…

Last night, I was able to see the 51’s play a great game (I think). The best thing I heard all night was the #3 hitter coming up to bat…a Mr. David Dellucci. The noodle arm himself. Being a Cleveland Indians fan, I found this to be amazing. I thought it unbelievable that I didn’t see on ESPN’s Bottom Line that David Dellucci had been picked up by the Canadian birds of the north (ha). I have always believed that Dellucci’s arm had gone “bye bye” a long time ago, but now I think I know for sure. I saw Dellucci one hop a ball from left field to third base. Third Base! Maybe his bats could redeem him right? Wrong. His 0-4 plate appearance with 2 strike outs was less than stellar to say the least. I was never a fan of David Dellucci’s and now I have to sit through my $1 beer nights and watch him play? That seems a little unfair. If Dellucci loves baseball as much as I do or as much as the surfer in the Red Sox hat that thought he was at a rave does, he has to know its time to hang them up. I don’t see him being more than a liability for any team.

SIDE NOTE: I called Jack Potts, a fellow Fan of the Feather, to tell him of the debacle and his response was “throw something at him, anything you can find, throw it”. I knew I should have done it because there is no way Dellucci could throw back any foriegn object hard enough to hurt someone. Also, I respect the sanctity of the game and all I ask is that he do the same…
