Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig embrace their inner mouse and squirrel

8 Comments

Hours before the start of Game 6 of the NLCS between the Dodgers and Cardinals, Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig had some fun in front of the cameras. Gonzalez was presented with a poster portraying himself with Mickey Mouse ears riding atop Dumbo the elephant, with the caption “Dumbo and Dumber” at the bottom. Puig was presented with a poster showing the Cardinals’ rally squirrel, effectively naming Puig as the Dodgers’ squirrel. The Cardinals’ rally squirrel reached peak fame on October 5, 2011 when the Phillies took on the Cardinals in the NLDS.

Between that and tonight’s anthem standoff, both teams are providing lots of laughs as the NLCS nears its end.
