Rays cut tension with iPad game We Farm (from Yahoo!Sports)

David Price(notes) needs 20 seconds. TBS wants to talk with him, and so does a whole tangle of other people. He stares down at his iPad screen and asks for 10 seconds to finish up, and all it takes is five more seconds until he can finally follow through on this thing of utmost importance.

“Got to farm my broccoli,” Price says. “Big crop.”

[...]

The rigors of a 162-game season and the stressors of the playoffs send the Rays scurrying for an outlet, and they’ve found it on a 9.7-inch screen and a game that resembles the popular Farmville. The players download the app for free, and then start building their dream farm, replete with everything from broccoli rows to blackberry-surrounded baseball fields.

The We Farm devotees around the clubhouse compare their plots and commence the trash talking. Originally, it bottlenecked toward Shields, who in July started playing the game in the clubhouse so Ashtyn’s crops stayed in good shape. About a month later, he convinced others to join in, and they’ve been trying to match him ever since.

“He’s like 3,000th in the world,” Price says with admiration.


::chokes down laughter:: omg. trash talking. <333 They're so addicted. I CAN SMELL IT ON THEM.

'Cause I am pot and I know a kettle when I see one.
