Here We Go Again, Again

Way back in 2010, when men were men, I approached my readers with a simple proposition:

Please create some head shots for me.

The motivation for this request was simple: as one who chronicles the weirdest and wackiest that the Minors have to offer, it seemed necessary to represent myself in a manner that corresponded to the topic matter. And who better to help with this task than those within (or interested in) the industry?

A few of the more memorable submissions, last time around: 

And, of course:

 

But times change, and I’m not sure that these images remain indicative of the Minor League Baseball blogging zeitgeist. So I need some new ones, and again I’m asking for YOUR help. Here are a few pictures to play with, taken within the darkest recesses of MiLB.com HQ.

 

I know that there are a lot of scoreboard graphic wizards out there, as well defacement aficionados and clip art enthusiasts. So, please, take a few minutes out of your day in order to doctor the above photos in any way you see fit. There’s no wrong way to go about this — my ultimate goal is simply to have a bunch of different pictures that I can use throughout the season, images that, in their own way, will help to illuminate the sphere in which I operate.

I’ll be collecting your submissions throughout the remainder of March, with a post highlighting the best (and worst) appearing sometime near Opening Day.

Thank you in advance for your support!

There’s more to come in this series of season-prep blog posts. But, for now, I’ll simply sign off with what I believe to be the greatest photo I’ve ever been involved with.

Excellent roller coaster photo, Ben. Did your significant other fall off the ride earlier?

Yes, she “fell.” That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
