SOM(E?) Kind of Psycho

Carl Hands

”I want to become an architect,” he said. ”I want to design things.

via our favorite architecture gossip fact sheet The Gutter, we learn that everyone’s favorite crackpot Carl Everett harbors (what are no longer secret) ambitions to join the design world.  This leads us to what is, for us, an obvious question: can Carl please design his way back to the Planet Zartron…

  • hahahah. Maybe while there, he’ll run into some of those imaginary dinosaur remnants. Oh wait, is the planet Zartron mentioned in the Bible? My guess is no. You know what the man said – If it’s not in the Bible…

  • From a 2000 S.I. article on old Carl:
    …A conversation with Everett can go in any direction and can bludgeon anyone who’s the least bit sensitive. Even teammates take precautions, lest Everett — as he did last week on the bench at Pro Player Stadium, home of the Florida Marlins — launch into a 20-minute disquisition on the balk rule. “The guy can yap,” righthander Pedro Martinez says. “But he can back it up. It’s a good thing he is this good.”
    “I guess I’m the brave one,” righthander Bret Saberhagen says. “I sit next to him on the bus. Carl can talk to me and carry on a conversation on his cell phone at the same time. That’s talent.”
    “My locker is next to his,” shortstop Nomar Garciaparra says, “so I try not to get into long conversations with him. I’ll just say, ‘Uh, gotta go, Carl.'”

  • I wish, John. I wish. The G’sniper’s inbox has got to be filled with great, sordid, semi-provable stuff. Unlike my own, which contains mostly emails from clients wondering when the f*ck their contractor is going to finish their seemingly endless construction.
    (And where did you read that rumor, by the way!? I have to say I am a bit flattered!)
