The Posting Process, Explained

attackgerbil has been scarce around these parts as of late.  The holiday season is a hectic time over on the business-side of the habitrail for yours truly.  I’ve also been enjoying the wonder of being a new father as today is baby gerbil’s 21st day on this fine planet.  A *mysterious* 24-hour illness that knocked me completely for a loop was an unwanted distraction, complete with vivid, detailed (lsd-like, really) fever-dreams that involved the Japanese government calling me to say they wanted their flu back.  All these items have limited my posting as of late.

I am thoroughly enjoying the many interesting threads and comments, but haven’t had any opportunity to do any research or had any deep insight as to what has been going on in the baseball world to comment much, let alone top-post.  However, somewhere between my fevered three-AM back-channel conversations with the members of the Lower House of the Japanese Parliament and random web clickety-clicking, I found an insightful, touching, moving, and highly intellectual cineplay that answers all questions as to why the posting process and subsequent fusion of cultural interests is such a good thing for The Game.

  • Strangely, you’re right. The bidding process makes sense now.

  • Thanks, Brad. Uttered in my best Rosann Rosanna Danna voce, “I thought I was gonna die.” But the dreams were COOL. Multiple lucid dreams, wherein I knew I was dreaming. It was a total trip. :)

  • I can not fathom the discipline it must take to stand there, know what is coming, and wait for it.

  • 48 hours and counting until I see Jay Cutler. WOOOOOHHOOOOOO

  • Counting the minutes, Brad. The Cutler Era begins!! I even picked him up on my FF team for the hell of it. Torpedoes be damned.
    The expression on the guy in the green right before he’s about to get his happyberries spatula-ed cracks me up every time.

  • Try and imagine the inner-workings of the mind of the evil genius who thought up a machine to slap a fellow in the pills.

  • These guys have a show where this takes place all of the time. There was a viral video going around of them with (the name escapes me) one of the big Pride fighters, doing a similar game in a library.
    It was awesome.
    I’d love to find out if there are any baseball personalities featured in The Game.

  • Japanese game shows are all insane, spend some time on YouTube searching at it will just blow your mind.

  • Jay Cutler: Jake Plummer without the ‘stache.

  • Hey, c’mon, SF. It was the kid’s first game. If he’s still doing this ten years from now, then I’ll agree with you, but give him a moment to adjust to the spotlight. His arm is about 30x better than Plummer’s. He just needs to get his timing down. Get a little confidence going. Won’t be long, I promise you. Plus, it’s not like he was the only one making mistakes last night for the Broncs. All in all, he showed more promise than Snake ever did. And don’t underestimate the value of not having the porn ‘stache.
