Mammals and amphibians kind of together – UPDATED

To show you just how much cross-species solidarity I’m capable of, I’m actually kind of watching the Yankees and rooting for them.  At least it’s on in the other room, and I intend to consider paying close attention.   I may even wait to go get dinner until the game is decided.

That’s about the most I can spare positive vibe-wise.

Maybe I should have kept my blog shut.  Texas just went ahead 3-1.

UPDATE – sorry, Mr. Cluck.  I tried.  Guess I’ve got to work a little harder on my vibes.  Isn’t it an odd coincidence, though, that the Rangers would win the playoff on the same day as the WikiLeaks dump?  I mean, GWB-wise.

  1. Say it ain’t so, CK. You were pulling for Fuster’s Yanks? C’mon. That’s not going with the good vibes. GWB connection aside, Texas is the feel-good story of the year. Now they’re positioned to have Cliff Lee pitch the first game of the WS. Even if the Phillies get there, they’re vulnerable with Halladay hurt. I’m a Giants fan, but given everything Washington and Hamilton have overcome, I’ll be happy if the Rangers win it all.

  2. You’ll still root for the Gs won’t you? Just for Lincecum’s sake? And now for Cody Ross, who apparently is burning Dodger fan butts (tho I heard that there was really no excuse for how the Phils were pitching him)?

    I was yanking for fuster’s pulls because that’s just the kind of kumbaya, everyone-in-it-together kind of a guy I am, and also because I thought the Goats post was funny but I didn’t really contribute, and also because I’m a sucker for a sob story and Gwen Verdon.

  3. If a group of businessmen choose to play a series of games against each other, that is their privilege. There is no reason for others to care about it–except to hope that nobody gets injured.

  4. See. Scott, wasn’t so bad, and the Wikileaks, if properly framed, boy I am an optimist today, indicates the dimensions of the struggle we face

    We’ll see. It’s part of my natural born liberalism to reserve the right to not only cut and run, but run to another cause for barely any reason at all.

  6. @ CK MacLeod:
    Never in a million years would I ban sports. I believe in liberty. Liberty includes the right to ignore professional sports. It includes the right to think thoughts that nobody else has ever thought. I am the first person in the world who thinks with enough originality to have discovered that professional sports has no importance and is of no interest.

    Hell, a day or two ago, Scott thought that George was me.

    CK wasn’t just marveling at the confusion, he was wondering how I managed to post his quote with miguel’s handle. For my next trick, I’ll pull a mid-level pitcher out of my hat and sell him to the Yanks for twice market value.

  8. @ Scott Miller:
    and I was replying that you had posted a quote from myself with George’s handle. You are a marvel of muddle.

    Good luck with your middling pitcher pitching. I think that your best hope is if the guy is an Iranian/Japanese.

  9. @ fuster:
    Good idea. But I’d think that since everything I came up with last week about baseball played out accordingly, you might consider the possibility that you’re just not appreciating the equal measure of clarity happening with me on other fronts.

  10. He’s got a point there, Cluck. The interesting question – pace the new post – is whether it would work in a betting environment, or whether the very thing that makes it work for him when he has no “clear” material interest would reverse and destroy him (or anyone else seeking to exploit it) when he (anyone else) did.
