This little piece of larceny is blowing up the Internet right now, with 4.2 million hits in just a few days.

While I appreciate Bo and Matthew’s ingenuity, dedication and cheapness, I can’t for the life of me imagine getting this physically close to one of my idiot buddies just to save the price of a movie ticket. So on that note, I have two words for these guys: Bargain Matinees. And here are two more: Landscape Mode. Nothing is more unnecessarily maddening than holding your phone vertically when you video. Clean that up, fellas.

A video posted by Mookie Betts (@mookiebetts) on

I don’t know if I’ve ever felt more positive about the future of a young Boston superstar than I do about Mookie Betts, right here, right now. That “€œ3 bills” hashtag is his way of saying he rolled a perfect 300, his second in just the last couple of weeks. Not only does that mean 12 consecutive strikes, he actually had 20 straight.

Now, you might be sitting there saying “Sure, Jer. That’s mighty impressive. But what does being a great bowler have to do with playing baseball?” And if you are, then clearly you know nothing about bowling. You’ve never stood at the top of the lane, your back to those hard, plastic seat, feeling the heft of the ball in your hand while your fingers find the grip, staring down that alley and calculating your attack on that head pin. You’ve never known the pressure of the gallery’s eyes upon you. The pins mocking you. The peril of the foul line beckoning as you make your approach.

If you can handle that kind of pressure, then standing in the batter’s box with the tying run on base facing some closer with a nasty fastball-splitter mix is child’s play. Betts has mastered the Sport of Kings, which tells us everything we need to know about his psyche, his makeup and his heart. If you can make it the alleys, you can make it anywhere.

Mookie Betts. Champion at bowling, a champion at life, and it’s only a matter of time before he’s a champion in baseball.
