Young Fellow Madison Bumgarner is signed long-term
This is how I feel about it.
The deal is for five years and $35 million, plus there are club options to extend it for two years after that. So, all told, Bumgarner could be here until 2019 on what looks like a very favorable contract for the Giants. He will be 29 and I, 27—young fellows no more.
While the two young men in the above .gif perfectly encapsulate my—indeed, any—joy, it is the below .gif that best illustrates how I heard the news. I was at work (on the computer at my kitchen table), going through the motions and my day quite normally, when the news ran through blissfully like a certain packet of hot sauce.
You may think it is actually mustard. If so, you are wrong; mustard is the bearer of bad news, and you can put that on your wall of quotes next to “Live, Laugh, Love” and “Keep Calm and Carry On.” Thanks, quote wall.
