I can’t believe I’m writing this, but Dan Shaughnessy’s column today — a parody of Curt Schilling’s Q&A sessions on his blog — is very funny.
Not only does it capture the stereotype of many of the more enthusiastic postings there, but he even refers to himself as the CHB. Will wonders never cease?
Update: Schilling responds to Shaughnessy, and he apparently didn’t see as much humor in it as I did:
The only response I have to Carl Everett’s Curly Haired Boyfriend is this.
“First they ignore you, then they mock you, then they fight you, then you win”
Putting his inherent ’toolness’ on display for all the world to see did far more than I could ever hope to do by trying to explain what a dope he is.
I think Shaughnesy has proved his "toolness" via his writing in far better cases than this one, but AG is right. This is definitely a war in which all of us — including the fans and the bloggers — are spectators.
