That’s the most ridiculous photo I could find of Showman and me. I have no clue why he’s sitting on top of me… and I have no clue why I’m sitting on the pavement of a filthy street in Manhattan. I do know that it was after a long day of fun in NYC that started with a Yankees/Padres day game. Anyway, that made me laugh. So there ya have it.
Over this past year, I’ve taken a lot of heat saying that I hide behind the veil of “BP” like it’s my alter ego or something. That’s just silly as I’ve said many times here on Lobshots that my name is Brady Phelps, and even posted pictures of myself. Regardless, I get people giving me crap. So, here’s my coming out party… out of the BP anonymous blogging closet. Myself, and my team of stallions. Because of the scrutiny and because we’ve got nothing to hide… I updated our “about us” page to reflect a little something about each one of us… and a photo. The photos are my favorite, because aside from Showman repping America… the rest of the photos don’t really look anything like us.
My photo is with my wife on Halloween… I was a Bears superfan and she was a cheerleader. Amazing how some shades and a mustache changes the way you look. Showman on the 4th of July. Mac is wide-eyed and in full possessed-fan mode. That’s Caster’s Christmas card photo where he looks just like Doc Holliday. As for Body, well… he’s in the shower with a glass of wine and sheepish grin. Sounds about right. Welp, here we are, as it’s written in our about us page… until we change it to something better.
As long time fans of good blogs… we decided we’re more clever than any sites on the web. Therefore, we felt obligated to start our own. Out of San Diego, we’re pitching a tent at the corner of sports and pop culture. As always, if you lob it up, we’ll take a shot at it…

Mac is tall, handsome and incredibly loyal… but he thinks you’re a real hooker, and will slap you in public.
