Naranjaville's He-Hate-Me-Cards ... (listening to Afro Blue)

Ondale … this is my 227th post on (Recycled) Cholo Knows … and I think I’ll hit 715 antes que Barry Bonds breaks Babe Ruth’s home run record de 714 … simon … and I think it's because he's tired of all the bullshit ... what really trips me out is not only the pinche messed-up mainstream publico attitude about Barry Bonds as he reaches a beisbol milestone … simon … every time the vato reaches the plate … fans boo the MUTHA … they hope he K’s … and drops dead like a limp cock … simon … the vato has fans, como yo, entonces the vato has enemies like MLB Commissioner BUD SELIG … pues … maybe enemies is a strong palabra …

Not so long ago ... my old childhood homie and I were pinche crazed beisbol card collectors ... simon ... we'd play poker for cartas ... roll dice and shit for them tambien ... anyways this vato had cards that belong to his hermano who was doing hard time en san quentin ... simon ... he robbed the same tienda twice ... twice ... and in my homie's closet, hung his hermanos Hang Ten and Op camisas, which all had cigaro holes ... these gente worshipped these garas like gold ... and then there was a Los Aces sweatshirt ... simon ... it was a short sleeve dark blue sweatshirt and on the back were the cards with the Ace in the middle ... and with the barrio spelled out in white stetching ...

Entonces right below all this bullshit were shelves with binders ... five binders ... the binders were old county binders from human resources ... simon ... they were orange and had ORANGE COUNTY PERSONNEL written in gold to a firme 1960's retro design ... and inside these pinche binders were beisbol cards ... tons of them all secured in plastic sleeves ... all the classics ... Hank Aaron ... Willie Mays ... Steve Garvey ... Nolan Ryan ... Roberto Clemente ... Jim Fregosi ... ET AL ... and when this vato's hermano came out from hard time ... he told his hermanito ... never sell the cards aqui en Orange County ...

This Chicanito had a firme collection ...

This familia was a trip ... they had a pair of thongs (black with light blue striping) by the back door ... and everyone wore them to go afuera ... yo tambien ... simon they were like size 14, a one size fits all cosa ... pero the apa and pinto hermano were bow legged ... mi amigo fue pigeon toed ... his firme hermana was big boobed pero flat footed and his other firme hermana walked like a pinche ballerina ... entonces la ama just smashed them ... so walking on them was like being on a pinche teeder todder or walking a tight rope por vida ... Y-QUE

BUTT hoy … white-skinned YANKEES like New York Yankee Jason Giambi are cheered as they reach the plate … even though this vato, like EL BARRY, is accused of steroid wrong doing Y-QUE … but when a black vato … or is that CHENATE … MAYATE … o some other HUSH HUSH NOMBRE … when a vato like EL BARRY reaches the plate … it’s bad treatment … all over AGAIN …

ENTONCES … they said it’s porque of steroids … his stuck-up attitude … his stand-offish treatment of the MEDIA … ETC … ETC … ETC … sabes que … puuurrrroooo peeedddoooo

The vato just ain’t liked … simon … check this out … hay unos pinche beisbol/football/basketball/hockey specialty card tienditas aqui en Naranjaville … simon … and the vatos who run these gigs … pues have firme historia alli … simon … a Willie Mays card won’t last one pinche dia in the case without being purchased … simon … a piece of Mickey Mantle’s bat, no wider or bigger than your pretty little cola thumb nail … pues this cosa goes for $125 … simon … ETC … ETC … ETC …

And with the Bonds cosa happening Y-QUE … entonces St. Louis Cardinal’s Albert Pujols leading the league with home runs … entonces … North Carolina’s Vince Williams being the #1 2006 NFL draft pick … followed by USC’s Reggie Bush as #2 … entonces … Texas’ Vince Younge being # tres … pues … if you have one of these cartas … aqui en Naranjaville you might get what they are worth … BUTT do local vendors promote and make them a trading priority to truly establish their value to current card buyers … as they still do for (steriod induced?) Roger Clemens … CHALE … one vato told me he won’t even purchase a EL BARRY card for his tiendita … he won’t waste his time, the vato said … even if the card was unique and in rare mint condition … mismo with the top tres 2006 NFL draft picks …

Pues … so … I purchase a pinche caja de 2006 NFL draftees … and who do I get … pues todos …simon … all top 40 picks and shit … tambien I get Matt Lienart’s autograph … and I sit on it for two weeks … simon ... when he boinks la Hilton, it might go up in value ... quien sabe ... but every time I go to this card tiendita … the vato wants to know who I got … I finally told the vato about Matt … according to him, this is the most sought after card "in OC" … “You’re kidding” … le digo …

Matt Lienart was the 10th pick in the 2006 NFL draft

PERRO sabes que … I don’t expect all things equal … CHALE … what I do know es que since I was en sapetas … these vatos have been shoving Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Tommy John, Rollie Fingers, Joe Namath, Roger Maris, George Brett, Brooks Robinson, Larry Byrd, Joe Montana … ETC … ETC … ETC …down my throat … simon … yet my fidea has always been on Mr. October … Bob Gibson … Clemente … Tony Perez … Vida Blue … and of course other YANKEES ... ETC … pero ... es que these local vendors continue to water down the equilibrium that makes a burrito firme … that holds a hamburgesa together … or that makes deep-throating spectacular …

Simon … the equilibrium still exists en Naranjaville’s THICK local beisbol card POLITICA ECONOMIA … but it's pinche cultura-lite to the max ...
