Reading through the highly entertaining non-gamer threads the last couple of days, I realized I haven’t said some things I should have said a long time ago.
1. I love Paul’s posts. He is thorough, always interesting, and committed to writing intriguing, intelligent, balanced articles. However, I dislike Paul personally, because his technical writing skills, overwhelming study of statistics, and the fact I feel like I should be paying money for his insight combine to make me feel like a lazy jackass. Which I am. I would prank call a dozen pizzas to his door right now to make me feel better, except that would take more effort than my lazy ass is willing to… eh screw it. That sentence required too much effort to type.
2. I love Jacoby Ellsbury. I would go to Dr. Nick’s secret island lair clinic to get gender reassignment if it were guaranteed that I could have Jacoby Ellsbury’s babies. But Dr. Nick gives no guarantees.
3. I love Mariano Rivera. But I don’t want to have his babies. My own two-year-old hit me in the head with a golf ball and it hurt like hell, and that was without any cutting action on his fastball.
4. I love that the Yanks have an 84-48 record on 9/2. No other team in the game has cracked 80 wins. Those dark nights spent standing on the railing of a bridge back in June after dropping every game to the Sox seem so far away now.
5. I love that Andy Pettitte doesn’t suck.
6. I love that everyone is always trying to figure out if Derek Jeter is overrated or underrated. Fact is, all everyone wants to do is rate him because he keeps doing totally awesome things year after year, which I guess makes him “over” rated.
7. I love my fitted Yankees cap, and I hate hats. It’s taken more than five years for it to start to fit right, and is one of only two hats I own I do not hate. I hate hats.
8. I love every comment that pretends to say there is some system that lets sox-centric authors get away/commit some perceived atrocity regarding “fairness” that the yanks-centric authors don’t attempt, or any comment that tries to throw the TOS up for discussion. Keep them coming, because…
9. I love a good laugh.
