Sweet Vernon Wells




What happened to the Vernon Wells that inspired Buck Canyon to rewrite and record the big tune above?

I miss that Vernon Wells.

As hope continues to fade, I continue to believe that in August and September Vernon Wells will rise up and deliver.

And, in honour of the return of All Your Base Are Belong To Rios, some Zero Wing. Enjoy ...

Holy fuck. Is this real life? Is this going to last forever?

I am in awe. Speechless really...

Eyebleaf, my dear, you may or may not have a disconnect with reality.

But the Sweet Vernon Wells song is fucking killer.

Let's hope Vernon joins us again for next season. I've lost all hope for him this year...

I doubt Vernon will join us in August and September, however I can see it happening. The reason I can see it happening is because there is no pressure anymore.

I've given up on trying to hate on Vernon. What's the point? It wasn't working for either of us anyway.

Instead, I've taken a new approach. Every time he "pulls a Vernon" - ie: infield pop up, or horrible empty swing at a breaking ball low and away, I just throw my hands up in the air, smile from ear to ear, look around the room and say "That's our Vernon!"

Kind of like a 70's sitcom. Only without the canned laughtrack.

Vernon set up us the bomb

@ Wrap: If we could thank Buck Canyon, we would.

@ Schultzy: I've got a pretty sweet disconnect with reality.

@ Mattt: He'll come back with a monster 2010. Because that's the season that really matters.

@ 25th: You keep on rocking your Vernon Wells jersey, bro. Rock it with pride.

@ The Ack: I like your new approach. "That's our Vernon!"

@ infieldfly: Big tune, eh?
