Mondo Bippo.

It started innocently enough. It was a gray, slushy day, and we were happy to see a package from the wildly generous and ever upbeat Troll. Sweet! Right? Well, never take anything for granted in this world, people. This is probably what made us complacent:
An unspeakably beautiful diamond Zito. As in, wow. Right? But no. The refractor had hypnotized us into serenity, even when we saw this:
Nervous? Over this?:
Why would a Darvish and a smile make us in the least bit nervous? Let alone...
Right? We thought it was a joke. Because look how great this is:
What could be better? A back such as this, that's what:
In fact, we didn't get really...
until, like the matey in the crow's nest, we looked out over a sea of cards and spotted this...

Magadan-ipped? What the....[cue up Psycho shower scene violin]:
Aaaaughh!
Good thing this was included as a post-terror palliative:
Whew. All we can say, folks, is, be careful out there.

Its a dangerous world... I had to get revenge on the blogging world somehow, sorry you had to be the victim. I laid 12 envelopes on the floor and closed my eyes and tossed Bip and he CHOSE you... Glad the Moe helped to pacify you...

I'm still confused on all this bip-business, and maybe that's a good thing?

Steve, thanks for the TTM tip. We'll save a few DMs. :)
Wax, the premise is, everyone got too many Bip Roberts cards in their initial collecting days. Now bloggers, being the cards that they are, are sending each other either a) lots of Bip Roberts cards or b) lots of cards of other players you get too many of and very likely don't want. As a joke. Thus, Bip has become a verb, an adjective, and probably also a reverse past perfect subjunctive. We hope we have not badly ruined the Joke by explaining it.

Wombat,
AND if you actually like your victim, you attack them with cards that they might actually enjoy a little... ie TTM fodder of their favorite team

I've long since crossed the line of "being careful" and gone into "no one can hurt me if I roll up in a quivering ball in the corner."

I'm bipped OUT.

what am I seeing with that mets auto card with names crossed off the back? Has that card really been passed around TTM? That is way cool if it has!

Geez. *hides snail mail address* I just had flashbacks of Billy Beane.
