I PRESSED PLAY JUST AS I WAS TAKING A DRINK AND DIET COKE JUST SHOT OUT MY NOSE. I FEEL LIKE I JUST VOMITED
there are so many layers of humor to appreciate here
the disruption of pleasant relaxing music
the word “sail” being yelled slightly off-beat as if the person filming was planning this and got a little eager
the small child’s laughter in the background
the pianist whispering “shit” to himself as if he only dropped an m&m or something
the foot appearing seemingly out of nowhere
the dedicated pianist falling down with his piano
it’s all so beautiful
the three random notes he falls on at the end
There are a lot of reasons to make fun of Fernando Rodney. The way that he wears his hat crooked is not one of them, though. Things I notice about people that complain about Fernando Rodney’s hat: First, they’re probably white. Second, they probably totally ignore other professional ball players who aren’t black who also wear their caps crooked.
Like when Sonny Gray does it.
Or when Abe Alvarez used to do it.
Hell even Bryce Harper doesn’t wear his totally straight.
But I promise if you Google “controversies” surrounding Major League Baseball players wearing their hats crooked, you’ll mostly see Fernando Rodney, and a few other results for other people of color (like the Yankees Michael Pineda).
Please stop the old, white grumbling over Fernando Rodney’s hat.
