Let's Have a Love-In

For the struggling Sox, last night the sinker sank and the bats cranked, leading to an 11-0 win over the Rockies …

Bill:
So that's what they fucking mean by the thin air at hitter happy Coors! [Laughs] Now I get it.

 

Doug:
Better, it looks like Derek Lowe finally gets it again … second straight sensational start … extended his run of scoreless innings to 14

 

Bill:
Can the Sox float on this momentum from the thin air of Denver to the patchouli soaked air of Barry Bond's San Francisco?

 

Doug:
Ah, San Francisco, all those gentle people with flowers in their hair … Birthplace of psychedelic rock, birthplace of the gay bathhouse …

 

Bill:
Birthplace of Blogging! [Laughs]

 

Doug:
Fuck blogging. The only thing I hate more than blogs are the fucking papuliferous pretensious puffs known as bloggers. [Laughs]

 

Bill:
Yeah, nobody reads blogs anymore, they're too popular. [Laughs]

 

Author's Notes
Bill's concluding speech is a reference to Yogi Berra's famous line, "Nobody goes to that restaurant anymore, it's too crowded."

Comments

Is that the same restaurant Yogi didn't like because "the food is horrible and the portions are too small"?

Is this proof that the characters' opinions are not your own? B)

"Is this proof that the characters' opinions are not your own?"

Exactly. They often say stuff I don't even think of but is stuff I overhear at the donut shop, on talk radio, or on web message boards, or sometimes just crazy bits I put together from who knows where.

That is not to say there isn't a bit of "me," at least on some level, in what they say. Some of it too is like an alter ego, i.e., things I've maybe thought of but would never say publicly in my own skin.
