…I thought I’d share some of the emails I’ve received since I started this blog.
Not the good ones – the ones from the true fans of the game regardless of their team allegiances. I get many of those and I thank you for them.
Oh no…the fun ones. I’ll spare you all the vile ones that MLB would shut me down for reposting…but I thought it would be interesting for you all to see a bit of what I get just for having this blog. I’m amazed at the people who take the time to write such junk, but what are you going to do?
Here’s the latest one I received today…before the game even started:
"YOU S*CK AND SO DO YOUR RED SOCKS.
Brilliant, isn’t it? Thank you Ryan Jirmasek.
Or how about this gem Joshua Wilmes sent me yesterday:
"Bye, bye red sox. Keep dreaming about a comeback and tell gaffe-nino he s*cks just like red sox nation "
And this one, which either came from a White Sox fan or a Yankees fan…he wasn’t specific, but just like the others, he did send me his name (amazing…write like a 2 year old, yet tell me who you are). Ben Marz, thank you for this enlightening message:
"bosox su x"
Wow. Such poetry.
And these are the ones I can print (although even these I had to edit to get on MLB.com). There are many others which I should print OUT and burn in the street…but I won’t. I understand the frustration other fans can have from watching people actually enjoy baseball.
I’m currently watching the Angels make Randy Johnson look bad. I got to watch my Red Sox play 165 games this year. Life is pretty darn good.
