The Legend of Sam Fuld

I wrote about the bizarre superhero cape promotion the Tampa Bay Rays are holding in honor of Sam Fuld over on Obstructed View, but this Fuldmania is really taking on a life of its own down there in Tampa.  I blame the humidity.

There is a Twitter meme going around called #LegendofSamFuld and it is entertaining as hell to watch. 
  • @JoeDu - Sam Fuld has appeared in every Star Wars Film. He was the Force. #legendofsamfuld
  •  @JettInTampa - Sam Fuld audits the IRS #LegendOfSamFuld
  •  @guyd10 - San Francisco #Giants requested to be renamed Sam Fuld Giants #legendofsamfuld
  •  @Graymatter11 - In related news, the Red Sox are trying to trade Carl Crawford for Sam Fuld. #LegendofSamFuld
  • @atlasrising - #legendofsamfuld Joe Mauer got hurt so he didn't have to defend home plate against Sam Fuld
  • @JoeDu - When you have a chance to hit for the cycle but decide it's beneath you, you've pulled a Sam Fuld. #legendofsamfuld
  • @richatthetrop - #LegendOfSamFuld auto industry changed the engine power ratings from horse power to fuld power A Nascar is now rated at 1/4 fuld power
  • @billsosports - Sam Fuld's cell phone always has a full charge and 5 bars. #LegendofSamFuld
  • @karenmcallister - When NFL returns, Tim Tebow will write Sam Fuld on his eye black. #LegendofSamFuld
  • @bigbelly55 - What is the meaning of life? The answer is #LegendofSamFuld
  • @TheSportmeister - Sam Fuld doesn't need steroids, steroids actually try to take Sam Fuld to get stronger. #LegendOfSamFuld
And it just keeps going.

Sam Fuld's IQ is higher than everyone else in this photo combined #LegendofSamFuld
Even Rays' team mate David Price is getting in on it:
  • @DAVIDprice14 - I don't WATCH much baseball...but when I do, I watch Sam Fuld! (dos equis guy) #LegendOfSamFuld
I'm so happy Cubs fans aren't the only fanbase to go apeshit over a player that isn't very good.

He's good at one thing
And that's running in to walls
Makes him fun to watch

To be fair, he's made some flashy catches and has been a fairly hot hitter. Some of the hype is deserved. Replacing Chuck Norris with Sam Fuld in Norris jokes? Not so much.

He might not have been very good but he made some plays that were fun to watch. When your team isn't winning, you've got to celebrate something else.
