Annoyed that the endless loop of Brian Wilson's(notes) Taco Bell commercial was only being broken by some occasional baseball action and Ray Romano's 42,563rd check delivery to the same two women, the Houston Astros pitcher registered his displeasure on Twitter.
Ballplayers, they're just like us!
Hey Bud, why don't you tell us how you really feel?
Some of you might think that a pitcher on a 106-loss team is talking out of turn against a closer who recorded the final out of the 2010 World Series. But Norris speaking out against a colleague really shows how much these relentless postseason ads can wear on a man. While it's true that we initially liked these Brian Wilson ads for their authenticity, we made the mistake of not considering they'd be appearing on TBS more than Peter Griffin and Conan O'Brien.
On the bright side, at least Wilson's relentless chalupa hawking has led to one of the most inspired Dugouts we've read in quite some time. Take note, TBS. Very funny.
