More Retching For Fetch

By Loudoun Insider

Another great post by Realloudoun on the very special relationship that the Loudoun Hounds and “their irresistible mascot “Fetch”" have with our 9-0 LCRC BOS and how everyone else loses.  But hey, who the hell cares as long as the Often-Promised-Never-Playing Hounds get what they want.

This is a real photo from the One Loudoun Facebook page.  I didn’t doctor it.  Seriously, I didn’t.  They really must have thought this was cute, just like the rest of the ridiculous Fetch crap.  Good grief.

UPDATE:  A TC reader decides to do some photoshopping with hilarious results!

    That photo is ripe to me memed to death

  • A.E. Gnat says:

    Granted, I don’t know a lot about base-ball, but shouldn’t “Fetch” be holding a bat?

  • edmundburkenator says:

    This whole thing stinks. Perhaps it’s Fetch’s anal glands.

  • BlackOut says:

    No bat needed in this game. It’s Fletch gangnam style.

    I got that via email as well, adding it to the post – awesome work!

  • Joe Budzinski says:

    That photo was really on their page? Boy if someone were of a mind to trumpet the bogosity of the project, simply running that photo over and over would convey the message perfectly.

  • Joe Budzinski says:

    I mean, “Scrub Brush With Utility Towers Of Varied Sorts, And Engine Block (Rusted)” tableau has always been a winning background, but using the action to draw the viewer right into the dry retention pond at the centerpiece is …. Visionary.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Well said Joe!

  • LoudouninNC says:

    A.E.,
    Brilliant!! Thanks for making my morning!

  • LoudouninNC says:

    The caption is perfect since I googled “shake down change” to find that photo. It was meant to be.

  • Linda B says:

    I kind of like the cartoon bumper-sticker version of Fetch, but that mascot version has a bit of the wild-eyed crazies going on. Like maybe he’s been thrown a “fake fetch” one too many times.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    I still can’t understand why they didn’t put a bat in his hands!!! Are they that hard up for cash that they couldn’t afford a freaking bat???

  • BlackOut says:

    LI, you’re assuming this whole thing is about baseball. I thought they mainly just put on community movies in parks around the county.

  • Joe Budzinski says:

    More unsettling than the photo itself is the individual who, upon seeing the raw version of it, decided it would be a good idea to have the words “Fetch taking a swing ….” photoshopped on there, and then posted for all the world to see.

    How high up the chain did that decision go? Because, if this is the calibre of personnel working on the early stages of this project, it does not bode well for public safety and health, much less financial return for the county. Would the same crew of managers who put these people in place, also oversee the ones in charge of food service and construction subcontracting?

    Maybe it would be best for everyone involved if development ended right now, and the Loudoun Hounds turns out to be a bunch of people in dog suits playing sandlot ball in the retention pond, when the weather is dry, without bats. The engine block can be home plate.

    You made my stomach hurt laughing at that, Joe B!

    The second pix depicts what’s happening to the Loudoun Tax payer. This project was approved because it would not cost the tax payers a dime. Now we are finding out Kincora plans to seek a $32M loan from the State CTB and the Board of Supervisors lobbied the VA General Assembly (via the Loudoun Delegation) for new legislation that would give the County the power to either levy an admission fee (tax) and/or create a special tax district.

    Those who are moving or have already moved in to their new home in One Loudoun planned community, you just got screwed by your developers Camberly Homes & NV Homes. Each developer neglected to disclose the fact the Hounds changed location to your back yard. Homeowners in One Loudoun should be royally pissed at the BoS & their developer.

  • [...] than you can say “Klaatu Barada Nikto,” we’ve unearthed the back story for that curious image LI posted of the Loudoun Hounds’ irresistible [...]

  • Shawn Pickrell says:

    @Baron Rosedown, the Hounds have moved to OneLoudoun, so I’m not sure how Kincora’s ineptitude/corruptness are part of the Hounds saga anymore.

    I think by moving, the Hounds leadership are showing they actually want to have a functioning baseball team, and they’ve probably been jerked around by Kincora as much as the rest of us.
