Beat the Streak Report: Wednesday, April 20
Can we get a sad trombone?
That pretty much sums up yesterday’s results, as seven of your top eight selections either rode the 0-fer train back to Zero Town or took a pass due to inclement weather conditions.
More than 10 percent of all Streakers put their eggs into Joey Votto‘s seemingly well-padded basket, only to watch the Reds slugger remove said eggs, crack them into a pan with a pinch of salt and a dollop sour cream and then enjoy himself a heaping helping of scrambled streaks.
Wait, did we just give away the secret ingredient to the creamiest, fluffiest scrambled streaks you’ll ever eat? Eh, you’ll never figure out exactly how much a dollop is anyway.
