A Bipartisan, U.S. American Plea to Dear Readers Galore

usa-flag-inside-map.jpgVerily!

Our day has come, my fellow Americans.

And now is the time.  Now is the time to be heard. 

Now is the time to count.

So it is with great pride, dear readers, that at this historic moment I shed my Cardinal red in favor of the stars and stripes forever.  I gladly reach across the proverbial aisle and shake the hand of the Cub fan who spit on me, who kicked me, who urinated on my shoe. 

We may not love one another; but we both love the greatest game on earth.

And likewise, our shared passion for making a difference in this great nation will bring us together on November 4th.  For on this day we are not Cardinal fans, Cub fans, Democrats nor Republicans: we’re Americans and we have a duty to fulfill.

So join us, Astros fans.  Join us, Brewers fans.  Tiger fans.  Yankee fans.  Red Sox fans.  Join us in the celebration of what our forefathers fought so hard to provide us.

Get out on November 4th and vote.

It’s your god given right.

You deserve to be heard.

And don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Jeffy

Enouph Phriggin’ Phun with the Phillies “Ph”

phillie phanatic.jpgBelieve me, Philly Phans, I pheel ya.  As a Cardinals phan and White Sox supporter, I know phirst-hand what exuberance and exaltation comes with celebrating a World Series championship.  Indeed, it’s so ecstatically mind-blowing that one can easily phathom losing all sense of grammatic aptitude and phonetic inpherence. 

I’m just sayin’… enouph is enouph.

Because, yeah, we get it.

We understand that the Philly “Ph” is phun to insert into newspaper headlines and crawler teasers phrom the major news organizations.  We understand that, phor Philly phans who have had nothing to cheer phor during the last twenty some odd years, that this is a big phriggin’ deal and you want to make some noise.  We understand that up until that last out was recorded, yours was as phormidable a task as you could possibly phathom and that phear of being unable to phinish would always be phound in the back of your mind. 

We understand.

We’re just tired of it.

Jump up and down.  Knock a few back.  Celebrate to your hearts’ content.

Just cool it with the dumb bastardization of the English language, please.

And make sure you get all the partying in before Tuesday, November 4th; because on that day my city, my home, my people will be the center of the world.

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Jeffy

Let’s Get It Right, Shall We?

baby yawn.jpgAs if the ho-hum disinterest of the 2008 World Series wasn’t enough to slow us down, now we die-hards have to wait and see what happens with mother nature before our venerable King Bud passes down his judgment so that the game can ultimately go on.  Having fully digested this oddity of baseball circumstance, the feeling I have now is eerily similar to that which I had on Election Night 2000 when a clear winner for the White House could not be determined with 100% accuracy.  Instead, I was forced to wait… and wait…

…and then suffer — for eight years.

But in this case, such doom seems unlikely.  In fact, with Hamels out and David Price in (maybe?) I’d say the advantage definitely goes to the Rays; which means there is hope that I will conclusively prove Mr. Krause wrong (yet again)!

I like that.

What I don’t like is public displays of idiocy: GW Bush, Amy Winehouse, MLB.com.

Yeah, I said it. 

Because when I logged on this morning to get an update on the weather situation, the graphic they had blasting over the front page had a couple of big fat ugly typos on it:

pittsburgh.jpgSure, they fixed it about an hour after I first saw it, but in this line of business, there is no excuse for misspelling words — even if it seems like people from Pittsburgh never pay attention to baseball.  And unless the Roots are designing graphics for MLB.com, “Phildelphia” is not a real place.

We here at RSBS have a full staff of highly educated pompous grammar-wh0re proofreaders — and by “full” I mean Mr. Krause and I.  But that seems to –

WE INTERRUPT THIS POST TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE HOPE TO RESUME WRITING SAID POST AS SOON AS THE ELEMENTS ALLOW AND WE’D JUST LIKE TO ADD THAT WE DON’T KNOW WHEN THAT WILL BE EXACTLY BUT WE PROMISE THAT IT WILL ADD TO THE ANTI-CLIMACTIC NATURE CLEARLY EVIDENT IN BASEBALL THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS SO YOU’LL AT LEAST GET WHAT YOU’VE BEEN GETTIN’
