To celebrate the acquisition of R.A. Dickey by the Toronto Blue Jays, some friends and I watched the documentary Knuckleball! (recommended) followed by Dickey's destruction of the Orioles last June. It was a fun night.

When we paused the game to get more snacks, we accidentally discovered that Wilson Betemit looks exactly like Grumpy Cat when he strikes out.

I really enjoyed Knuckleball! (and maybe I'll write a review of it later). If you're looking for a primer on what a knuckleball is like and would enjoy seeing a Superhero Origin Story style recounting of R.A. Dickey's long journey to the big leagues, it's worth a rental.

Here is the trailer.
