Is there a psychiatrist in the house?
My God people! If you don't like Bill's threads just ignore them and move on with your hectic lives!
"Advertising is the rattling of a stick inside a swill bucket."- George Orwell
Haha..seriously Zillagod. You are exactly right. People need to lighten up on this board and pass threads by if they don't like the poster. Stop flagging harmless comments just because they don't like the poster who made them and keep the talk to baseball..rather than all these personal attacks. Yikes..guys are always yacking about how catty women are...I don't know many females who are as catty as some of the men in this forum.
For the record...I crack up when I read Bill's thread titles. They are so obviously meant to be humorous. He reminds me so much of a couple of my Italian uncle's...lol
As far as the OP...Bogie has a lot of fans...especially in those of us who follow minor league ball. It will be nice to seem him play. That doesn't take anything away from Drew...but giving him a rest here and there is a good thing. Isn't that what we heard when Ortiz was given a rest?
I know there will be a lot of people..myself included that will happy to see the kid play...and while I haven't been "praying for it"...lol...it will be nice to see. I think that is all Bill meant by his title.
No offense miscricket, but are you really this slow, or are you just playing???
Now... i don't "hate" billy, but he brings this on himself. I think..... most guys just like sticking it up his posterior, as opposed to really hating the guy. When you hitch your wagon to the likes of Softy, an epically compromised person who is more than fond of demagogically dehumanizing any number & class of people, folks will tend to assume you are like minded. What is it you don't get about that? This is not exactly a difficult concept to follow here. Furthermore...... When you consistently add your own two cents onto the vile racial demagoguery & other various bigotries spewed by your chosen & fully backed 'hero,' it's not much of a stretch to assume that you completely agree with that person. In fact, it goes beyond assumption & becomes a certitude. When you add the love-fest with 67, the case is closed.
Given all this, it's hard not to appreciate the rich irony of these 3 charmers constantly bemoaning the slings & arrows of these unjust & 'hateful attacks.' The most amazing thing to watch in all of this, are the women who buy into the 'Menendez' phenomenon, where the guilty become victims. Sure, they killed their parents, but now they don't even have a mother or father. How can you not feel badly for them?????? :) LOL.... You got to hand it to these guys....... they're smart enough to know that many have difficulty keeping up with logical absurdities, & will therefor take their side as the brutalized victims they tell you they are.
Talk about needing a shrink??? LOL
Having said all this, I don't hate billy, I feel sorry for him. I really don't think he gets any of this. He's just a sad old guy. :(
Oh miss cricket? ;)
sorry for picking on you. Just making a point
