The Dord of Darien

Musings from the Mayor of the Internet


There are no gorillas in baseball!

This blog wasn’t running at the time, so I never got the opportunity to comment on it when it happened, but this AP story about Theo Epstein’s contract negotiations brings it to light again: when Epstein’s previous contract expired, he had a mysterious disagreement with the team president, and ended up leaving Fenway in a gorilla suit to avoid attention from the media.

I repeat: to avoid media attention, he left Fenway in a gorilla suit.

Only in Boston, friends.
