God Said No, Breathe, Osama in Obamaland, Black Tornado, Marilyn...I could go on. Been a fan since '97 -- I'll be there Wednesday night -- and you should be, too.
Dude, getting reprimanded for using the word "fart"? Sounds like Nutting drinks the same Kool-Aid that the Scaifes (Tribune-Review) do...I won't give the Pirates my money -- for anything. I kind of have the same love-hate relationship with the Yankees -- I worked in the front office from '84 to '92 (no, we weren't very good then, but nothing like these under-achievers)...you tend to always love the uniform, the stadium, the experience of your first baseball team, but the business of baseball is pathetic...The Angels sign Pujols & Hamilton in consecutive years? A fake salary cap (if you can exceed it with penalties it ain't a cap), but , more importantly, no minimum payroll. I actually read a column in the Boston Globe the other day in which they advocated for a uniformity of rules between the leagues -- and, get this, insisted that the NL add the DH! The DH is pointless. We already saw the return to "small ball" after the steroid ban and the game is just better when a manager has to consider pulling his pitcher every 9 batters. Anyway, I used to beat on Huntingdon (calling him their 12 year old G.M.) until a long-time fan asked me if I could do any better working for the Nuttings...'nuf said.
Somehow, back in April or May, I got run off the road -- in Ligonier, on the diamond (our town center), where people normally show politeness when alternating turns to enter the circle...i was traveling east on the southwest quadrant and slowed for a truck to enter the circle...i proceeded, only to be ignored by the next entry, a woman who didn't see me (i guess) and steered her car right at me, i swerved, hit the curb, and was launched onto the grass, narrowly missing the stone pathway...i was mad, and i was really only riding to school to be a good role model for my students -- i've ridden to town a number of times this summer, no incidents, but i sure as hell know that many drivers don't "recognize" our rights as riders...keep up the fight, amigos
