Kevin Slowey is set to pitch today! After spending some time on the DL and in Rochester, he avoided the trade monster and is now back pitching for the Twins, even if only for awhile. In honor of this I decided to make a pic or two using the Hipster Slowey meme that I was going to post in the game thread today. But after making a few, they became addicting and I realized I would be clogging the game thread up, so here's my crummy fanpost instead.
If you haven't seen Karlee Kanz's excellent Hipster Slowey post on her OMGTwins blog, you should. I tried to copy her style, but as you see, I made it look like Kevin is buried up to his neck in the turf, and also, my pics can't hold a candle to Karlee's, but here they are anyway. My apologies to Karlee in advance.
By the way, I like Kevin Slowey, this was just meant in fun, if I offended anybody, it was not my intention.
These two need some explanation, I think;
I looked it up, Radke, whom I always think of as #22, wore #59 in 1995. Of course a hipster would want a rare find like that!
This pic below is from Kevin's old MLBlog. If you are on Twitter or Facebook, you probably know what "owling" and "planking" are, if not you probably don't care anyway. Side note about his blog, I just noticed he hardly ever capitalized anything.
Here's the rest, in no particular order.
Ready to try your own? Here's a blank one. Just keep it real, nothing corporate or bourgeois please!
