A plea for penance

Let us pray.

O Readers! Thou art so patient when we spend the better part of a day helping to promote the nascent media careers of attractive concession workers. And thou art merciful when we suck all of the fun out of things.

We beseech thee to accept our humble offerings of baseball-related links as penance for our trespasses.

O Readers! We are not worthy to receive you, but only say the word (in the comments section) and we shall be healed.

For thine is the computer, the browser, and the high speed connection, for ever and ever. Play ball!

Doc Day Link Dump!
-Lloyd/Drew at the Ghostrunners goes totally serene in an introspective digression. Also, he guests on the Walkoff Walk podcast and promises Jays content.

-Neate at Out of Left Field passes on the news that Demitri Martin ("Ladies...") is going to portray Paul DePodesta in the Moneyball movie. (No word on who will portray Brant Colamarino, and whether if they will have titties.) Lloyd the Barber better hurry the eff up and finish that book before the movie comes out, or else the ending's going to be ruined for him.

-The Blue Jay Hunter gets hisself ready for a slugfest at the old ballyard tonight. Also, he loves George Bush.

-Mop Up Duty's got no love for Alex Rios and his GIDPs.

-Bart Given ditches the Inside the Majors blog to write on the problem with baseball's disciplinary system on Sportsnet.ca. (We figured that kid had potential.)

-The Te of Inglett sends out prayer offerings for Michael Barrett and his once-broken junk.

-Rob Neyer, who was hidden from us for the past few years behind the dark menacing wall of the ESPN Insider site, has now got a blog called the SweetSpot on the four-letter net's public site. We'd forgotten how much we enjoyed his take on things since they tucked him away.

I'd prefer a plea for pennants myself.

I too require forgiveness, and as my penance I shall humbly take leave until next week.

I knew Ian loved Dubya...

Penance first. Pennants later.

Darren Priest said...

I like it when you dish about hotties. Maybe you should start using MS Paint to add some spurting cocks etc.

Ian Hunter said...

Tao, how did you know that I held Dubya in such high respect? Actually - I prefer George Sr., he had actually a sense of humour to show up on The Simpsons.

You're forgiven Tao, so long as you stick to doing what you do best. For the sake of your fellow Taoists, please do not stray into the vapid culture of z-list celebrity mongering (though you may be tempted by a hot piece of ass, resist). Your duty is to provide fruitful analysis of the Jays. STICK TO IT!

Voodoo Matt said...

All right fess up Tao, that was you that caught that pop-foul with your face wasn't it? And what was up with the coverage by Sportsnet? 3 out of 4 stations were carrying the Yankees game. I blame that piss-tank Jamie Campbell. He couldn't bring in his quart of gin so they had to show the Yankees game.

Tao of Stieb said...

Noticed that about Sportsnet, although it was actually two of the four that were showing other games. (Ontario and Pacific were showing the Jays).

It's a good thing we've got all four regions.

And no, it wasn't us that got hit with a ball. We have the good sense to duck and squeal like a girl when a ball comes our way.

Joanna said...

thanks for the uh, shout out...

Tao of Stieb said...


We actually went to your blog, but the latest post was on the girlie things with the microphones, and we were just trying to forget that thing even happened.

Next time.
