Boys and Girls...I love you all. I love baseball. I love the Dodgers. I love summertime and remembering eating Carnation chocolate malts at the stadium and flinging the lids towards the field from my mt everest-level seats. I love everything about 1988...


But, it is the best weekend of the year, and I am going to gorge on so much college football that I am going to have to forsake DD, ya'll, and baseball until Tuesday. I hope you understand.


Disclaimer: I love a lot of things but I don't love drugs--hallucinogenic or otherwise.

@BIah I was married 9 months after meeting my wife...21 years later we're still going strong.


So, sure, some people make a mistake marrying the wrong person, but that can happen whether you know them for months or years. For me, I knew very quickly that I had found the person I wanted to to spend the rest of my life with.

I didn't get to watch the game last night, so I'm hoping someone can clarify something for me. Did Ryan Braun inject HGH as part of his on deck ritual, or did he, in the interest of propriety, go back into the dugout between innings to do it?

Reply

@Expressed anal gland @JonathanLingo Negatory. You guys are assuming that talent/production are all that matters. However, you have all worked and so you should know better. How many talented jackasses get fired every year? A lot.


His talent won't be so overwhelming much longer to overcome all things. I don't know what his clubhouse rep is, so that counts for a lot more than his beard. But, if his clubhouse rep is in line with his beard, than it is going to hurt him.

My completely serious tangential comment about this article: Brian Wilson, now that he is old enough that he is starting to lose MPH on his fastball and is starting to fit the description of "journeyman", has reached the point in his career where his beard/hair/reputation is going to start costing him money. Putting up with a "weirdo" is charming when they are the best closer in the game, but once they become a journeyman you start to ask, "Is this really worth the hassle?"


So, the question is: Does Brian "believe" in his image so much that he is willing to take money out of his pocket for it? I'm curious to see what he does

@Mike Petriello @JonathanLingo The major sports in the 30's were horse racing, boxing, and baseball. They had barnstorming football teams but they were very, very minor. Baseball was king.

Baseball Trivia. Around WW2 baseball was basically the only professional sport in the US. How popular was it? Popular enough that in addition to the minor leagues that we know today, they had B, C, and even D leagues.

@Hoze There used to be a women's barnstorming baseball team going around ten years ago or so. They were sponsored by a beer company (Bud Light?). That is the end of my story.

@no opinion bot It shouldn't, but unfortunately it does enter into the equation. The other side of the question is, though, What if you don't tell them and then they find out later in an awful way (say, your child has an awful overbite and a weak chin). Won't they feel betrayed/hurt that you didn't tell them?
