|Meet ninth-month-old Bode Dockal. Ask him what it's like to see two perfect games. (MLB.com)|
Bode Dockal may be merely nine months old, but already he's accrued, oh, seven or eight lifetimes worth of baseball-going experiences.
How is this possible? Young Bode, you see, has been to two major-league games in his young life, and each time he has witnessed a perfect game. Once more, for appropriate emphasis: He's been to two games, each perfect. He's nine. Months.
Stated another way, Bode Dockal -- who, let us remember, has crawled among us for but nine months -- has experienced in person 8.7% of the perfect games throughout the sprawl of baseball history. "That's all well and good, Mr. Curiosity Rover," Bode Dockal will say at a future dinner party, "but I saw two perfect games. If memory serves, I pooped during both."
So is there any reason for young Master Dockal not to appear in a commercial with Kate Upton? Is there any reason for him not to offer to attend any pitcher's next start provided his Hot Wheels-laden list of demands is satisfied?
