Boomer to Mets Player: Real Men Don't Miss Baseball Games for the Birth of their Babies!

4 years ago

I've heard a lot of stupid things in my day, but Boomer Esiason stating that Daniel Murphy, an infielder for the New York Mets, was wrong for taking paternity leave for the birth of his child seems to take the cake. He went so far as to suggest that Murphy's wife should have scheduled a c-section so Murphy wouldn't have to miss the first two games of the year. No, really. I can't even.

I can't—but these memes sure can.

First up, Success Kid! He thinks missing opening day is totally worth it.

NEXT: {INTERESTING...} -->

The Most Interesting Man in the World has some strong feelings about manliness.

NEXT: {CONDESCENDING WONKA IS CONDESCENDING} -->

Condescending Wonka wonders why Boomer Esiason's opinion matters at all.

NEXT: {NO} -->

Grumpy Cat is, well, grumpy.

NEXT: {#FWP} -->

First World Problems Girl is feeling guilty.

NEXT: {YOU'RE AN ASSHOLE, WOODY} -->

Buzz Lightyear has no problem being frank with Woody.

NEXT: {SKEPTICAL LOOK IS SKEPTICAL} -->

Fry's Skeptical Look should be directed at anyone agreeing with Boomer's load of crap.

NEXT: {AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!} -->

Ain't Nobody Got Time For That Lady doesn't even believe in paternity leave for baseball players! I mean, THREE WHOLE GAMES? Who do these big shots think they ARE?

NEXT: {ARE YOU CRYING?} -->

Jimmy Dugan is all riled up. Again. Always.

NEXT: {YOU MADE DAWSON CRY} -->

Dawson Leary just wants to remind everyone that it's a really, really long season... to already be THIS FREAKING STUPID.

Whatever these memes say, I can guarantee you one thing: Murphy and his wife won't be naming this baby—or any future children they might have—Boomer. Obviously.
