Carl Pavano: Minnesota's own Che Guevara?
When I was in college at the University of Texas at Austin, the cool t-shirt to wear among a certain segment of the population was this Che Guevara one, where the revolutionary looks all iconic.
Nowadays in Minnesota, the hepcats are running around with this Carl Pavano shirt, an homage to the famous Che one, even though Carl can't help but look like the knucklehead that he is.
Instead of "Viva La Stache," the shirt should say: "Wanted for stealing $40 million from the Yankees." Not that I'm bitter or anything.
You know, maybe the two have something in common, after all, aside from famous mustaches:
* Guevara traveled to Bolivia, while Pavano spent tons of time in oblivion on the Yankee payroll.
* Che had "The Motorcycle Diaries." Carl could write the "Garbage Truck Diaries," the story about how he crashed his Porsche into a garbage truck, broke a few ribs, then lied to the Yankees about the whole thing.
At any rate, if Pavano manages to best the Yankees tonight (something I'm actually afraid of happening!), he really will be a cult icon!
What do you think? Tell us about it!
