Moderator: Baseball Moderators

What did you watch when the games were head-to-head?

The Canadian Olympic experience is less than ideal, at least pythagorically

Well if someone wrote a book about it, it must be true.

And if your legal residence is in Canada you must have your finger on the pulse of the nation. How could I have been so wrong. I don't know how I can argue against such a well crafted position.



Can we change the poll to ask what the chances are of me getting the last word in?

Not as creative as your other insults. But it's cool.


Well if someone wrote a book about it, it must be true.

The point of showing the book wasn't to show how true the position is (though it is true, you should probably read the book Mookie), it was to show the public perception (and particularly, the perception among the people that are actually paying attention). The author is attempting to capitalize on that public perception in writing this book.

Not good. But it never hurts to try.

I'd say the odds are quite good. All he has to do is post something and lock the thread. But that would ruin all the fun.

Richard Dawson, of course. Although the J Peterman dude is awesome because he's a caricature of the Peterman character, almost like Sean Connery on the SNL Jeopardy skits.

How do you come out with these pronouncements that are just plain wrong?

Is that a rhetorical question, or did you just recently start reading mwier145?

I just hate it when ex-Canadians like you rag on their former country. Go ahead and be an American but you've lost your right to criticize.

Don't go trying to dump him on us. You're stuck with him.



He lives in Kansas or Nebraska or some farming state. He has one Canadian parent, that's it. He's American. Accept it.
