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.

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.
