Patrick Corbin is good. Really damn good. He’s had a couple solid, above-average seasons in the past. But when he was assigned to be our opening day starter, did anyone see THIS coming?
Side note: Corbin is a very attractive young man. You better be careful, or he might steal yo girl.
In other news, off days suck. I feel like we’ve had way too many of them. On one hand, hooray rest! On the other hand, I want to keep our foot on the gas pedal and keep up this glorious ride we’ve been on.
Completely unrelated, just-curious-I-don’t-know-the-answer-to-this-question question: Does anybody know how many series we’ve won so far this year?
Today’s Meme Lesson
I think I should give some meme lessons in these threads. After all, not everyone is hip and up-to-speed with the amazing Dbacks memes out there. Today, I am going to introduce a very popular Dbacks meme, especially from the r/azdiamondbacks subreddit:
“No Step On Snek”
This meme originated back around 2015 and 2016, as a play on the famous Thomas Jefferson political cartoon (the “join, or die” flag with the quartered snake) and the follow-up Gadsden Flag: “Don’t Tread On Me”.

This has been spun-off countless times and was even adopted by the Libertarian/Tea Party Movement. However, the usage of the “no step on snek” meme for the Diamondbacks has no merit to the political adoption.
The users down at the Diamondbacks subreddit have done a pretty great job with this meme. Every Dbacks win, they will type out “no step on snek” via emojis in three separate replies. They also make some pretty great memes:
So, that is today’s Meme Lesson: No Step On Snek!
