In these trying times let Telly Hughes and a Brewers fan who gave out her number on TV soothe you

Just got back from watching part of the Twins game over at Target Field. It was a small, boo-filled crowd. It was another poorly played game in which the Twins, with various players who have limbs torn asunder and therefore cannot play, looked disinterested in the sport of baseball. It did not help that Nick Blackburn pitched to extremely hard contact, except when he was walking batters. It also didn't help that the bullpen was managed as though it was a one-run game.

But we digress. We are here to spread some cheer. Diddy sent us this item a few days ago, and it is hilarious. Image and story from Yahoo (which did the young lady in question a favor by blocking out the final four digits of her phone number):

Armed with the giant $105 million contract extension he signed last week, Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun had to figure that he'd see an increase in the already-large number of marriage proposals he gets from female fans.

But who knew one woman would try to separate herself from the posterboard-toting pack at Miller Park by printing her cell phone number above her suggestion? And yet that actually happened on Friday night as the fräulein above made sure to place all 10 of her digits on her very earnest offer.

You probably know where this bad idea jeans scenario is going, of course. The fan who said her name was Robin and her sign appeared on FOX Sports Wisconsin, and hilarity ensued as fans from Waukesha to Wauwatosa entertained themselves by flooding her voicemail inbox.

Here is the video of the post-incident interview, which features Telly Hughes! That's all you need to know.
