I was at the Angels/Red Sox game tonight, so I did not see any of the Tigers game, aside from score updates on the Monster and via my dad’s phone. Sounds like Scott Sizemore was basically AWESOME AWESOMEPANTS (3-for-4 in his first day back!) and clearly deserved acknowledgment.
Here’s the problem: I don’t have any cartoons of Sizemore (he’s present in larger cartoons, but there are none of just him). I also don’t have any photos of Scott Sizemore, which is my usual backup for when I’m too tired/busy/whatever to draw things for the blog.
Additional problems: I got home from the Sox game late, I was already wicked tired, and I am working on a laptop with a trackpad. The vast majority of the drawings you will see around here are drawn old school, with ink on paper, then scanned and colored in Photoshop. But this late at night, this tired, and needing to get up for work tomorrow, I was not about to go through the whole process of drawing something, turning on and hooking up the scanner, scanning the drawing, coloring it in a bunch of layers, etc.
So what could I ‘draw’ in 5 minutes or so, using a laptop trackpad (this is sort of like fingerpainting)?
There you go. Scott Sizemore to the 2B rescue, at least for one game.
Now I am seriously falling asleep. Let us celebrate Scott Sizemore while he’s here with this truly terrible Terrible Cartoon.
