In Response to Re: harness, forum Jesus
(Sigh.) Why can't we all just get along? Why does the Internet bring out the best and the worst in us? I am friends with Burrito and harness, and would like to remain so. But I think Yaz had a good point - let's bury the hatchet - and not in each other's necks - and enjoy the moment. Maybe try to keep the ad hominem stuff to a low chatter. Think about it: Sox up with best record in the AL - ahead of the Yankees by two games and up by one game in the loss column - all of this after an absymal start that shook the faith of many (not me, btw). Laser Show only has a bruise on his knee, won't need surgery. The universe is proceeding as it should. This season could be even better than 2007. Or 2004. Or even last year, when the team and the FO showed True Grit while making the year thrilling and fun. Despite the utlimate outcome. I was thankful for last season. I am afraid that the First Amendment contains the right to speak freely, which is consistent with the right to be illogical, curmudgeonly, snarky or just plain wrong. But it doesn't mean we have to hate each other. We can agree to disagree. And we can agree to not be OCD about disagreeing. Please. To paraphrase fivekatz, "just my two cents." And make it a seltzer, which as everyone in New York knows, a two-cents plain . But I digress.

Summer of 67,
First, I was 4 years old at the time, & I still remember playing 1/2 ball on the streats of Allston. Great summer! :)
To the point.... Well said! The personal ad hominem attacks BY EVERYONE are getting out of control! Last night, I responded quite harshly to bettered, SoldRed, GM, Softy, ? .... Funny! It didn't make me feel better!!!!!!!! Even though what I said was correct. Frankly, it made me feel like (rap!
I guess it's the anonymity of the internet that allows us to go to the extremes!
When we start personally attacking eachother, even betterred / SoldRed, he wins!!!!! It seems clear to me that the guy is simply here to stir up trouble & make RSN look bad. I personally know how hard it is not to respond when Softball starts with the attacks & juxtaposed moralizing. It's weird! It's infuriating! It's so hypocritical that you feel duty bound to respond in kind! YET........... IT NEVER DOES ANY GOOD! YOU CAN'T CALL SOMEBODY OUT WHO IS TRYING TO STIR THINGS UP BY ANY MEANS P0SSIBLE!
Anyway...... Let's try getting back to baseball! Let's try having some rockus yet semi - civil honest debates!
HEY!!!! 1st place!!!!!! +10 over .500 :) :) :) Who would have believed it after such a disastrous start!!!! :) :)
Let's enjoy this incredible season! Like a 4 year old in the summer of 67 :)
