Five years ago yesterday, Jacoby Ellsbury stole the first base in the World Series and won every person in America a free Taco Bell taco.

As you might imagine, this was a pretty big deal here in Boston. Five years later, people still talk about it when listing Ellsbury’s accomplishments.
In fact, at the time I created this LOLcat with Jake’s brother Gun-Hee, based on this hilarious on-air dugout conversation, and this classic LOLcat.
And when Jacoby was a kitten, I had to get him catnip taco toys.
So…when I saw this taco costume on sale at BaxterBoo…yeah, I had to get it.
The mistake I made, though, was taking Jake out into the hallway to photograph him.
And you know what happens when he’s out on the hallway carpet! He rolls.
At least he’s comfortable in whatever he’s wearing, wherever he’s wearing it.
Craiglist is having an Aby explosion lately. There was an Aby pair on Baltimore’s Craigslist, but happily, they were adopted this morning and are on their way to their new homes now.
But there’s another pair of Abys looking for a home on on Vancouver, BC’s Craigslist.
I love the description: Brother and Sister 3 years old. Must be adopted together. They are great cats. Very loving and affectionate. Quirky and a lot of fun. If you know this breed then I don’t need to explain. They are both very healthy indoor cats. Never been outside. Need a home where they will be cherished as they will be your little shadows. They are both fixed and have all shots and vet check ups up to date. These cats have been babied. Only serious cat lovers need apply. We will be very picky as to who we will allow to adopt these characters. Thanks for your interest.
These two are so amazing! I wish I lived closer…
And then we have Bella, in the East Bay :
