Things I'm Doing To Get Psyched For 2012 Baseball: Laughing At Tim Kurkjian

Deadspin has jumped onto the first post-Linsanity meme: Tim Kurkjian imitations.

Here's the Blue Jays' J.P. Arencibia (which has a nice Kurkjian coda at the end, "my career is over!"):

And here's the Rays' Elliot Johnson, who throws in obscure stats to boot ("step up and imitate the geeky little sportswriter"):

The Red Sox organization has an imitation of its own, as well, but it wasn't nationally televised; and frankly, this meme has already jumped the shark. But it's funny! Even if it's only AL East teams who seem to be in on the gag.

Kruk looks more and more cro magnon with each passing day.
