The Universe is Expanding, Just Like the Legend of Sam Fuld
You got to give it up to the creative
minds and tongue-in-cheek crafty devils that migrate towards the many
social media channels all over this big blue marble. Give them a
little leeway and the quick-witted mongrels could/should/would rule
Even before the conclusion of last
night’s Rays versus Red Sox contest, the always expanding “Legend”
of Rays outfielder Sam Fuld was further reaching into the
Twitterverse and beyond to make Fuld now an eternal part of the Web,
and Fantasy baseball owners scrambling to gain the services of the
feisty left-handed hitter for their squads.
Some of the 140-letter spurts about the
5’10″ new MLB sensation has made him a giant overnight. So it is
only right that I post a few of the comments/Tweets?blips and we can
all enjoy them. The following is from just one account @RaysRepublic,
which is the “official” Rays Twitter feed manned by a few
creative Rays employees:
More proof Sam Fuld is a budding folk
hero: his Wikipedia page ( 5,029 words) is longer than HOF’er Hank
Aaron’s ( 4,868).
Sam Fuld once allowed a fly ball to
drop in the outfield just to see what it was like…He was not a fan.
Sam once threw an A’s player out at
home from the warning track…at Yankee Stadium
The movie “Eight Men Out” is
actually based on Sam Fuld’s first unassisted octupal play.
5 Hour Energy is Sam Fuld’s blood
watered down. Straight up, it’s 5 Month Energy.
The highest point value you can achieve
in Scrabble is spelling SAMFULD.
Thanks to Mr. Fuld, Costco is now a
member of Sam’s Club.
Sam Fuld Can touch MCHammer
Instead of saying “Winning”,
Charlie Sheen is now claiming he is “Fulding”
These are just a few of the Tweets
hitting the kiddie pool under the hashtag #LegendofSamFuld. It is
currently the 3rd highest topic in Tampa Bay. I would not
be surprised if it is a US wide topic by midnight. But then again,
when the President dials the red phone, Sam Fuld’s cellphone plays
the Batman theme.
