Howdy, folks. And how is everyone today?
Well, yeah, I know. Pretty awful game last night, wasn't it? Tough one to swallow, that.
Anyhow, I actually though we might do something a little bit different today, something that, as far as I know, we've never done here at Viva El Birdos. See, I took a couple of days of from work, yesterday and today, for a personal matter, and so I find myself with a couple of spare hours today before I have to be anywhere. I'm done with my RFT work (if you would like to read my full thoughts on the game last night, you can check them out here and here; the original article was really long, so my editor split it into two. Probably not a bad idea for me just pretty much all the time), and so I've got these extra hours to spend on VEB.
Well, rather than write up some rant about Tony (mostly because I've already done that), or do some more scouting reports (I just don't feel like it), I thought maybe we could just have sort of an impromptu chat.
So let's chat, people. I'll be here until right around two o' clock, at which point I'll put up a game thread and everyone can just read through whatever we got to here and add to it if they like.
Feel free to ask me anything; I may not know something, but I am wicked good with the bullshit. Don't feel confined to baseball, either, if you don't want. We can talk about records, or the weird crush that I have on the girl from the Esurance commercials, or my favourite 8 bit video games, my sex life (sadly, pretty much a dead end street there nowadays), or pretty much anything else you would like.
I have no idea if this is going to work or not; in fact, I'm almost anticipating it being a huge failure. Even if it is, though, it's going to be a glorious failure, and that's the best kind.
