Yes, someone was selling a Cardboard Cal Ripken. That sound you just heard was Regular Jim Traber getting an erection.
What sucks about this is that Cardboard Cal Ripken has already sold for $30 damn dollars. I would have at least paid $50 for it. I would have done this because Cardboard Jim Traber needs a friend who likes to kick it while drinking beer and wearing tighty-whities underwear.
Seriously, Cardboard Jim gets pretty hot and lonely in my garage. Cardboard Mayor lives there, too, but he doesn't care for Cardboard Jim. We asked him why, but he said there were "more reasons than he can mention." He added "some obvious, some not so obvious."
Anyway, maybe another Cardboard Cal Ripken will surface on the internet. Or maybe there's a Cardboard Bo Van Pelt or Tim Kurkjian out there. If you locate one, let us know.
