I have no beef with Jose

We should call him Joey Bats. You know, ironically.

Is that incorrect use of irony, or am I missing something ?

i love the irony police

Torgen said...

The Pittsburgh TV guys called him that, even though the fans hated it. Also, his bat isn't that good. If a nickname isn't insulting, you would expect it to be used on a person the speaker cared about. Since the nickname is inaccurate and used on a player we don't much care for, it is an incongruity between what we say and what we know to be true--therefore, irony.

Thanks Torgen !

What was your definition of clutch again ?

Chris said...

Wait, so what's the bright side?

Call me crazy, but you'd think a player with a $2.2 million contract on the line wouldn't have a ponch.
