Which Red Sox prospect are you?


Doug:
Is this cultural obsession with "Which fill-in-the-blank am I?" quizzes something that sprung up as a result of the internet or has it always been with us?

 

Doug:
I mean did people in the Middle Ages walk around wondering "Which Christian martyr am I?"

 

Mike:
Probably. Isn't that the whole idea behind the patron saint concept.

 

Doug:
Yeah, I guess you're right.

 

Doug:
So instead of having a personal daimon such as Joan of Arc the modern person has "I'm most like Bilbo Baggins!!!"

 

Mike:
Yep. Isn't progress wonderful?

 

Doug:
Speaking of progress, Jackie Bradley Jr is already in camp.

 

Mike:
Any sign of Joan of Arc?

 

Doug:
Nope, nor Jenny Dell.

 

Comments

Why I must ask, is it commonly accepted that humans wish to know what larger figure they are "like"? Is it to feel more connected to that person? To draw upon their karma, or is it to escape the notion that a "mere cat" is in charge of one's life, for example.

I'm Herb Clutter!

I'm that guy with a fuck-all fastball:Henry(don't call me Buck)Owens.

So maybe we should call this the year of the bad horse?
