Fun Friday Feature … on Thursday

From his new digs in San Francisco, former Mariner Omar Vizquel relaxes by painting. But he won’t do landscapes or baseball pictures, since those would block his path to inner peace. Or something.

Which is too bad: maybe he could airbrush the wrinkles off of Moises Alou and paint the Giants into the wild card race. So what, pray tell, does he paint?

[T]he walls and floors are covered with his works in progress: a tribute to the pope, a Christlike figure and a reclining nude.

No word on whether the reclining nude is one of the “Older Women For Omar.”

    #42 and #44 Thanks. Best laughs I’ve had all week. We really need a baseball game around here though.

    #46 That’s cool, I didn’t realize his photographer jones went all the way back to college.

    And yes I’ve seen some of his work, it’s actually pretty good. I believe he did a calender when he was pitching for the M’s and the proceeds went to some charity. I actually ( and almost literally) ran into him at Ivey Searight once when he was picking up some prints. The dude is way tall.

    Vinny the fiddler, I remember him. Another Calabro nickname. Is he still at Portland?
