A Particularly Ill-Advised Attempt At Mimicking The Dugout

Posted in Baseball, Blogged Down at 9:44 pm by

You can decide for yourself whether a scenario in which Cecil Fielder walks by Prince’s bedroom and overhears “awraahhhhh aaaarggghhhh ya girl. Hoooly shit. I’m gonna wax that ass and then let you wash off that big black Louisville Slugger with that mouth” is actually funny.

Given that father and son are hardly on speaking terms, however, it defies plausiblity.

Still, given that it’s not beyond the realm of possibility the author might someday meet Prince Fielder, there’s a slim slice of entertainment value in imagining Milwaukee’s MVP candidate having an open and frank discussion about whether he — or any person on Planet Earth — actually calls their cock a “big black Louisville Slugger”. Out loud, anyway.

    I think what’s more offensive than this is that in another post, our author declares “For every sports blogger out there, no matter how insignifcant their voice on the large scale internet may be; Leitch is our leader.” It’s easy to be a racist, it takes a particular kind of stupid to show that kind of slavish devotion to the Gawker Death Star.

  2. Didn’t try to copy the dugout. My stuff might not be strong by some’s opinion, but it’s always original. Just ‘be cool’. No venom. No hatred. Thanks for taking notice.

  3. All my stuff is 100% original. If I were going to copy anything, it wouldn’t be a site like the Dugout. I find them juvenile. Yes, more juvenile than anything in the Fielder post.

    You really should stop deriving a high percentage of your material by picking at others. It takes a lot of energy to be spiteful, venomous and hateful.

    Or you can just delete my comment again.

    TNM,

    your comment was never deleted. It was, however, held up in the same spam filter as several dozen other messages overnight. As I’m sure you’re aware, blogs with readerships above or equal to a dozen visits a day are generally plagued with comment spam promising enhanced big black louisville sluggers and the like.

    “You really should stop deriving a high percentage of your material by picking at others.”

    Thanks, I greatly appreciate the constructive criticism. I’m trying to run a positive, happy-go-lucky operation around here. I’ve been told that it takes fewer muscles to smile than to frown (though fewer still to hit the delete button).

  5. No harm, no foul then. This isn’t the first time some of my ‘work’ has wound up on here.

    That said, even if I can’t compete with a blog like yours when it comes to hits or readership, I enjoy running my little mom and pops blog that gets slightly over a dozen hits a day (No Joke).

    I guess if I was doing it for hits or readers I’d be doing it for all the wrong reasons. I think it’s good for the mind, and I like having things documented in a sequential order of how they happened. The archiving is great to look back on, no? Locked forever in time on cyberspace. Thanks for the look and link, and keep on keepin on here.

  6. Also, I’d love to know how you take a picture of a web page. For the life of me, I can’t figure out how to do it (like you did w/ Diamond Hoggers). Very cool.

    TNM,

    I’m hardly suggesting CSTB is a worldwide or even a neighborhood leader in terms of traffic. Just that the scourge of comment-spam a) sucks and b) impacts many blogs (this one included). There was no deliberate attempt to censor or delay your comments from appearing.
