Inflatable PED?  What do they plan to do next?

Fans of trolling their opponents are a longstanding tradition and one of the why going to the game is more fun than staying at home and watching it on television. Whether it’s the creative chants shouted in unison during a Premier League match or the Sharks fans shouted “You suck!” before their opponents at the conclusion of the national anthem, the creative banter made the fan experience all the more memorable. Well, Dodger fans just set a new standard.

This is beautiful! It’s remarkable! I hate the Dodgers, and I can’t help but smile, clap, and nod in approval at the great genius of this trolling game.

Apparently, this has to do with the fact that Fernando Tatís Jr. Padres’s are suspended for 80 games for violating MLB’s performance-enhancing drugs policy less than a month ago. While many items have been thrown onto baseball diamonds over the years (beach balls, the batteryfood, etc.), the inflatable PED stands out because not only does it specifically target the team the Dodgers are playing against, but it doesn’t harm anyone, can’t hurt anyone, and it really easy to replicate.

I love to appreciate the Astros for their 2017 cheating scandal, followed by Trash bins are constantly being thrown into the field against the ‘Stros not so much fun. For one person, the trash is a small part of the whole cheating scandal, not really representing the whole scandal. Second, imagine that a trash can slips out of the hand of a fan while he/she is trying to throw it. That might knock another fan out. An inflatable PED does not have that problem. It’s soft, but still gets the message across.

I mean, take a look at the video again. That’s just a plastic bag filled with air, and covered in a little duct tape. Throw in a little sharpie for labeling and BAM, you’ve got yourself an effective troll. It’s also way cheaper than buying a bottle of the real stuff and throwing that onto the field. Sure, maybe the Padres’ broadcast won’t show the ball girl picking it up, but the home team will, because they know just how solid a taunt that is.

Now, of course, as is the case with any insult, if it gets overused, it loses its luster. So, I’m not saying I want to see an inflatable steroid at every Padres’ game for the rest of the season, but maybe one more this year, one when Tatís returns next year, and one at the end of next year when the Padres are competing for a playoff spot again? That would be *chef’s kiss* perfect.
