Brian Tallet Born
Brian appeared in yesterday's Yankee game--oh, just like last year, I'm accepting shirts--and being that my family recently entered the twenty-first century and got cable, I got to see Brian Tallet for the first time. Tallet is a tall (6'7") and generally underwhelming left-handed reliever who spent the first three years of his career in
On television however, the true Brian Tallet emerges. I guess the nicest way of putting it is that Tallet has a look going. I don't quite understand what look it's supposed to be, but it's a look either way. In addition to the rather prominent sideburns you can see on Tallet in this photo, he's since added a rather bushy mustache and allowed his rather curly hair to grow out the back of his cap. The overall effect is of a nearly seven-foot Groucho Marx with large sideburns pitching for the Blue Jays. I wish I could explain Brian's decision making in all this, but I'm afraid it's as much of a mystery to me as it to you. We can only stand and admire.
