Unwritten Rules

Postby Omaha Red Sox » Thu Apr 06, 2006 6:26 pm

Rick Reilly had a fun article to read in this month's SI regarding unwritten rules. I thought it'd be interesting to see some more examples of "unwritten rules" that Cafers live by.

A few from Reilly's article:
Never knock in the tying run in the ninth inning of an exhibition game. Far better to lose than go extra innings in spring training.

Always clear the inside lane for the faster runners.


Never hit the quarterback during practice.


Losers walk.


Rookies shag balls, whether they are millionaires or not.


When a receiver drops a pass, go back to him on the next play.


My own:
Run onto the field, don't jog.

Never draft a QB in the 1st round, I don't care if he did just set the touchdown record


...and for actual sports:

Play hard or don't bother showing up

For life in general: Leave a minimum of 1 urinal between you and the other guy pissing.

For sports: Play defense too.

Likewise, when you go to the movies with your buddy, leave a fag seat between you.

Hey, I'm not a biggot; that's just what it's called.
