At first I was upset that no equipment manager stitched “2 Legit” on the back of the jersey, but then after seeing MC Hammer toss up the double peace sign, I finally understood. His uniform number is an answer to the age-old mathematic equation:
2(Legit) + 2(Quit) = 44
Using advanced mathematic formulas, we learn that Legitimacy is equal to eight and Quitnessence is equal to fourteen. Science!
The Hammer even threw out a pretty great first pitch, putting the actual, professional athlete, John Wall, to shame.
So inspired was Conor Jackson by MC Hammer’s appearance that he hit his first career Major League grand slam. Surely after 2,062 Major League at-bats, you can’t claim that it’s mere coincidence that Jackson emptied the bases when Stanley Burrell was was featured.
