Six Degrees of Chimichangas

Yesterday a comment was posted by Chris for me to find a card that relates to a random word selected by someone.

I challenged my brother to send me a word not relating to anything sports.  My brother, knowing how my brain operates, didn't bother to ask why, but simply responded with Chimichanga.

Excellent choice Lil Brudder.
Now as odd as it may sound I often associate the word Chimichanga to the Merc with the Mouth.  Yup, I'm talking about Deadpool.
For years Deadpool has been associated with the Tex-Mex cuisine in the comics.
For those that don't read the comics, perhaps you may remember the line about Chimichangas in the live action movie portrayed by Ryan Reynolds.

You guys may remember that I posted a 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon post last year.

Well...its back.

Chimichanga Style

So...Ryan Reynolds starred in the movie R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department) with Kevin Bacon
Who played one of his best roles in Patriots Day which briefly featured the beautiful Arissa Page.
Who was in the movie Grown Ups2 with teenage heart throb Taylor Laudner who made girls love werewolves in the Twilight Saga, but also appeared in a movie that took place in Pittsburgh's very own PNC Park that was filmed in 2010.

Lautner was seen wearing a 1979 throwback style jersey with Roberto Clemente's name and number on it.

It's a perfect recap of the face of the franchise from 2010, 1979, and all-time.

Stargell and Cutch are also the only two Pirates to win the Roberto Clemente award.

I wonder if Chimichangas are served in the clubhouse.


  1. Great post. I'm a big fan of chimichangas, Deadpool, and Roberto Clemente.

  2. I knew you cold do it, lol. That triple relic is an incredible card!
