Unless you live in a cave or in North Korea, you probably know that the Winter Olympics are going on right now in Sochi, Russia. While there are 88 different countries participating, there seems to be one country receiving less media attention than the rest: Cuba. Sure, there have been some political kerfuffles, and yes, it’s not that cold in the Caribbean, but the Cuban national Olympic team deserves more recognition. Don’t worry peons, the BBQ is here to offer up unmatched coverage of all things Cuba:
Free agent Kendrys Morales takes some time off from contract negotiations and hits the slopes in the downhill for Team Cuba
Our hero Yoenis Cespedes and his partner Leonys Martin go for the Flying Lotus in figure skating pairs
New White Sox slugger Jose Dariel Abreu catches some air in the men’s ski jumping competition. Who needs a helmet anyway?
Martin, Yasiel Puig, and Yuniesky Betancourt get down and dirty on the ice. Yuni is bringing up the rear of course
The Most Holy of Men

In our last trip to Hagerstown, we watched diminutive second base prospect Tony Renda play the game of baseball. Renda, a part of the Nationals organization, has a healthy crop of players ahead of him at his position. Potentially including top prospect Anthony Rendon. We quickly realized: Rendon renders Renda useless. One thing lead to another and…
…here we have the most beautiful Mount Rushmore you could possible recreate. Tony Renda, Anthony Rendon, Tigers “closer” Bruce Rondon, and the top prospect for the 2014 draft, left-hander Carlos Rodon.
So, after a day and some change of voting, we know who our early leaders for the Final Vote for the All-Star Game are.
IN THE AL BATTLE OF THE SET-UP WE HAVE CHOSEN TO RAISE THE BAR.
AND IN THE NL WE OBVIOUSLY CHOSE YASIEL PU…… WHAT THE HELL FREDDIE FREEMAN IS WINNING ?!
DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE DONE #BARVES FANS? YOU HAVE AWOKEN THE BEAST.
THERE IS NO STOPPING HIS CONQUEST AND REIGN OF TERROR. HE WILL GO UNTIL ALL LIFE IS LONG GONE IN THE PUIGIVERSE, ALL BECAUSE YOU FAIL TO ACCEPT OUR NEW CUBAN OVERLORD.
Looking Pretty Funky There Joe
So I kind of took a break with the whole photo-shopping thing for a couple reasons. I don’t think I’m that good at it, they are extremely cheesy, and they take up a lot of time. Recently, Jordan has been on me about doing more of them so I finally gave in. So without further ado, I present to you the newest Hollywood Blockbuster about one ragtag dreamer who dared to believe: A Puig of Their Own.
