Last chance to personally buy me a drink for the next couple of weeks.

    Hey, me too. I’ll be out of the country [links to SABR website] all next week.

    Wait a minute! Quick quiz: Does the word “petafile” mean anything to you?

    Would that be a file on the order of > 10^18 bytes? Like a megafile, only much much much bigger?

    I remember Petagine when he played for the Padres. I must admit, I never would have considered him a tertiary topic of commentary.

    You seem to be an MLB fan in some form or fashion. Cheers…

    Another TJ spews:

    No. Please explain.

    I was a regular on a baseball Rob Neyer’s message board way back when, and there was a troll who seemed to delight in suggesting Neyer was… er… into children. However, this troll was so illiterate, he always accused him of being a “petafile.” I thought perhaps you had frequented that board too. It was my way of determining just how small the (online) world really is.

    On the other hand, your reference to Petagine suggests I may have simply chosen a reference too obscure.

    I’ve also frequented Baseball Primer/BTF, but not for a long time.

    Anywho, sorry about the digression. Have fun at the conference and tonight. Hoist one or two for Doug Pappas. He is missed.

    Cynical Idiot @ 7

    Your jealousy is understandable. Ever since your neighbors bricked you inside your house 20 years ago, you’ve been going a little more stir crazy every day.

  7. 13

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Now Roger…is that anyway to welcome me back.

    Try this approach instead–
    Welcome back Cynical. Your witty and intelligent insertions were missed.
    Now Cynical Idiot

    See, it flows much better if you start with something heartfelt and THEN start hurlin’ the shit

    JCH spews:

    Roger and Goldy, Can you pass your welfare checks and food stamps to pay, or do you wait for someone else to pay? After all, you are Democrats, and as Democrats, you are victims, and should not be expected cover your own tab. Someone else should have your bill “redistributed” onto their bill. Perhaps other clients at the bar should have to pay “a little extra” because of yours “needs”.

    Now that’s funny. Well, if you’re a geek.

    christmasghost spews:

    mr.cynical…i truly missed you…..
    your witty and biting observations on life and human foibles always amuse…..
    heh heh heh……glad you are back.

  11. 18

    Mr. Cynical spews:


    Thank you my friend. How nice of you to notice my considerable skills! It never ceases to amaze me how the LEFTIST PINHEADS love to lecture folks about civility, peace & love….yet are downright mean. While my friends who are always RIGHT, while accused of being Right-wing Facists are, by their actions, kind & considerate.

    Upon further review, it doesn’t amaze me since LEFTIST PINHEADS are incapable of effectively “multi-tasking” such difficult issues as breathing and being kind to those with different opinions ALL AT THE SAME TIME!!

    Hey! Mr. Cynical, welcome back!

    Now, take one for the team* and put your head in the oven and turn on the gas.

    How about taking one night off of drinking liberally and sending the proceeds to the Nigerian relief effort?

  14. 21

    JCH spews:

    How can Democrats spend hundreds of dollars on drinking when there are staving children in Niger?

    JCH @ 14

    Apparently you haven’t read this blog for a while or you would know RR has been ill recently and is in no shape to go drinking with his fellow rabble rousers.

    Roger Rabbit spews:


    What, and give up what I love best? Surely you jest. I indeed might live longer in a monastery but I’m temperamentally unable to adjust to clean living.

  17. 26

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Roger Rabbit has long suffered from terminal diarrhea of the mouth. The poop has also obviously leaked into his “blogging glands”. RR is forced to blog in his snuggly fitting DEPENDS diaper. It’s not a pretty sight….or smell.

    Somebody needs to clock that guy. He is like the asshole behind first base yelling and cursing at the opposing team. I smacked one upside the head once.

    Mr Cynical: If you called me a leftist pinhead to my face, I can guarantee you that you’d never say it again. Your bulbous head beet red with anger and as huge as a mylar balloon and as lifeless as one with 3 day old helium would be kicked toward the garbage bin of failed causes as the political remains of Rove and Libby were dragged senseless to rhe same destination.

  20. 29

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Calm down my little hairy-legged one. Is it that time of the month for you lucy??
    I would recommend using shorter sentences…even when you are ranting. Your fellow LEFTIST PINHEADS have a hard time comprehending anything beyond the single word of HATE.

  21. 30

    JCH spews:

    22.RR…. What it Newt or Bush that was responsible for your illness? I KNEW you were a victim!! Maybe it was the evil RR administration that withheld your meds so a rich Republican like Jane Fonda or George Soros or Mrs. John “Fing” Kerry [12% MTR] could ……….er,……..well…….Never mind!!

    Roger Rabbit spews:


    Mr. C, whatever are you talking about? Depends, my ass! Who uses Depends? Where do you think all the rabbit pellets on your lawn came from? (P.S., I know where you live, and I come over and eat your garden and shit on your lawn every night.) Signed, your favorite cute cuddly fluffy little bunny.

    christmasghost spews:

    headless….you are too funny.threatening violence….and this from the “party of love and compassion”????
    careful lucy…your true colors are showing again.
    so to re-cap….if liberals don’t like you they will destroy your property, cause bodily harm [or at least wish it on you] and then childishly call your foul names.
    wow….they are SO intimidating.
    personally….i thank god for the headless lucys of the world every day. keep on talkin’………

    She was obviously being metaphorical, but you’re too dense to figure that out, aren’t out? Although I have no doubt Lucy could kick your blowhard right wing ass if she wanted to.

    christmasghost spews:

    roger…….maybe you should get back on those “meds” you were talking about…maybe THEY weren’t really hurting you after all.
    metaphorical huh? LUCY??? are you kidding?
    well, then if it’s okay for her to do it….what about ann coulter???? Hmmmmm?
    i would love to see you spin this…………

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Ann Coulter isn’t metaphorical, she’s mercenary. She’s just in it for the money. Here’s what her pal David Brock said about her:

    “Ann and I never had a serious conversation about politics, or anything else. Instead, we smoked, drank to excess–Ann seemed to live on nothing but Chardonnay and cigarettes–and vented our anger and cruelty by hurling all manner of epithets at liberals and the disadvantaged among us.”

    Source: David Brock, “Blinded by the Right,” New York: Three Rivers Press, 2002, at p. 198.

    By the way, two pages later — at p. 200 — Brock points out that the never-married Coulter was a sleep-around who bedded, among others, Bob Guccione Jr., scion of the Penthouse Magazine smut-peddling empire.

    “Ann Coulter isn’t metaphorical, she’s mercenary. ”

    David Brock is a mercenary as well. He also wrote “The Real Anita Hill”. I doubt you believe any of the trash Brock wrote about Clinton and Anita Hill. What makes him credible now, other than you agree with his politics?
