#MUPWATCH: MUPDATE 1

If you are reading this you probably know what #MUPWATCH is. If you don’t you should get a Twitter account and then watch this video. Please also follow @jessespector and @amandarykoff for all your #MUPWATCH needs. 

As of 2:37 ET on Monday, October 7th, there have been 32 instances of baseball related #MUP lightings.

Of those 32 baseball-related #MUPS that were lit over the past week, 24 of those were lit in TBS promo ads. TBS’ #MUP lighting habits are absolutely deplorable and downright disturbing. Here’s a team by team breakdown:

The Pirates lead the pack in lit #MUPS as their storybook season has taken a dangerous turn. Not far behind them are the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals must change their ways before more #MUPS fall to the arson’s torch. The Braves and the Red Sox only have one #MUP lit apiece and have done a fantastic job of keeping #MUPS out of harm’s way. Scientists believe the Navy/Red color scheme might be keeping the #MUPS safe, but I personally think that the #MUP lighters, whomever they may be, tend to stay away from foam tomahawks and beards.

The remaining related baseball #MUPS are as follows:

  • A lit #MUP at PNC park. At least the #MUP’s last memory was in a nice place.
  • A #MUP reportedly lit at Dodger Stadium stuck in post game traffic.
  • A Fenway Park #MUP.
  • I heard a #MUP at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. I will never be the same.
  • A whopping four #MUPS were set ablaze on the Rays Radio Broadcast despite four separate orders from David Price to “SAVE IT NERDS.”
  • Three more unspecified #MUPS. May the families of these unclaimed #MUPS find peace in these troubling days.
