In Memoriam.

On this most solemn Quevedo Day, please take a minute to pay your condolences in the comments -- and, to pay proper tribute to Rubie (the real one, not me), please include your favorite junk food.

I'll go first:

Rubicon Tiberius Quebotsky -- 6'0", 185 lbs. Bold Party Chex Mix. (Also: cheese-filled microwave pretzels.) I'm too emotional to write right now, so I'll let this YouTube clip speak for me:

I'm going to have to go with Potato Skins

if only we knew what Ruben's at bat music was we could play that on an endless loop all day.

In a shocker: it was actually Sarah McLachlan. Huh. How about that?

Do wings count as a junk food? If so, I'll take them.

FPMKE said...

Cookies, my only kryptonite.

Rubie Q said...

Depends what kind of sauce you've got on the wings. What's your poison?

KL Snow said...

The hotter the better.

Taco Bell and lots of it. I'm sure Quevedo dined at one point or another on my personal favorite the 7-Layer Burrito. Which includes pretty much every ingredient imaginable inside the actual burrito (For those of you unaware the 7-Layer Burrito is Taco Bell's meatless option which packs some 600+ calories of rat free goodness.) I think they even thought about throwing a soft drink in there at one point to increase drive through speeds, but were turned down by the FDA for fear of increased biphesenol-A consumption. Sissies.

P.S. Sarah Mclachlan...not so much...

My 2nd favorite Rubie story is the time that SBTG and I went to a random, poorly attended, afternoon game, in 2003 and sat a Friday's table overlooking the bullpen. We attempted to get people to throw a ball up to us from the 'pen, to no avail. Even Marcus Hanel dissed us.

We then had a full order of potato skins delivered to our table. They were delicious and we seriously debated offering a skin to Ruben in exchange for a ball. There is NO doubt he would've taken the deal. But while we discussed it, we accidentally at all the potato skins, and never got to actually make our indecent proposal to Sr. Quevedo. It would've been a way funnier story if we had acutally finished the transaction
