Everyone has "those friends" right? Those friends where you watch a show or movie together and you can turn to them and say "that's you dude!". Sometimes the references are compliments and flattering, other times you're being compared Fat Bastard from Austin Powers. The good, the bad and the ugly I took sometime to compare some of the Free Parking Podcast game to everyone's favorite sports movie characters. Some of these I've had in my head for years - other I came up with for the purpose of this blog but I think they're all pretty dang good. Take a peak and if you know the boys, let me know how I did!
DJ Nater – Brickma from Rookie of the Year
The glasses, the facial hair, the clubhouse moral booster. Not to mention him quoting Mr. Brickma perfectly word for word, line for line from Rookie of the Year. DJ Nater even has a shirt, claiming “Hot Ice”. Coming full-circle, that’s how I would even describe his music mixing skills. Hot ice; the perfect combination of ear blasting, dance-provoking beats and cold, “who hurt you” lyrics.
“The key to being a big league pitcher is the 3 R's: readiness, recuperation, and conditioning! You see, after the game, a lot of guys like to ice up their arm. Still, other fellas think that heat is the way to go. But I have discovered the secret, Henry: hot ice! That's right: hot ice. I heat up... the ice cubes! It's the best of both worlds!”

Message from Fundie:
Yeeeeeeooo! D'arcy is gonna learn ya'll some knowledge with this article, this is the first ever Fundie Spotlight. I',m spot lighting my buddy Nick's love for the UFC, and he gives you guys his UFC "State of the Union."
Now, I know what you are probably thinking. Patrick Mahomes was the Superbowl winning quarterback and MVP of the Superbowl. In case you did not know every winning quarterback of the Superbowl game goes to Disney World when they win the big game. But now times are a little different and its no NFL player going to Disney World this time, but instead the NBA is playing the rest of their season in Disney World due to the coronavirus.
In 1994 the final 50 games of the MLB season and the playoffs were canceled due to a strike led by Don Fehr and the MLBPA. The reason for this strike was that Owners wanted a salary cap just like the thriving NFL at the time. The players did not like the idea of a salary cap being implemented and went on strike and did not play. We are now in the year 2020 and are in the middle of pandemic from the Coronavirus and Owners want players to take pay cuts on their salaries. The MLBPA has expressed that they are not happy with this idea whatsoever.
The players that are most affected by this are the players in the MLB that have close to max contracts. All of your superstar players would have to take massive pay cuts because of the amount of revenue that is being lost this year because of the season being shortened and not being able to have fans at the games when the season starts back up. With the MLB’s newest proposal to the players about a pay cuts, the team’s highest paid player is expected to lose a lot of money. Phillies Outfielder Bryce Harper signed a 13-year contract for 330 million dollars in the fall of 2018. Harper makes about 27.5 Million dollars a year just from his MLB contract, and with this new proposal by the MLB, if accepted, Bryce Harper would go from making 27.5 Million dollars a season to 6.5 Million dollars this season. We are talking about someone losing 21 million dollars that Harper has already signed for and is supposed to be getting this season. These players need the money they signed for to keep living the lives that they have right now.
