Hey vets I have a question for you

Postby perlick29 » Wed Sep 01, 2004 1:01 am

I just wanted to know what some of you thought of the article I wrote for the cafe called Bill Bavasi Strikes Gold.

I know, I know shameless self-promoting posts as I would say may not be worthy of a Mazel Tov, but that's not really what I'm looking for. I could really use some good, honest opinions on what you thought of it, it is the second article from the top on this site, currently Ryan Fay's 6th entry is the newest. My sincerest gratitude goes to anyone who will respond and I will take any constructive criticism into consideration for the future. I also knew that many of the frequent posters come here (all of whom I respect) so maybe you guys will see it and help me out. Thanks guys.

Had it really stunk, I probably would have told you that in my reply in the thread. :-D

I thought it was a good article, and something that a few of us (myself included) probably didn't pay much attention to. ;-D Sure, we all payed attention to Garcia, but the other players involved could matter next year. ;-)

Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

Since you are pleading for responses I figure I could give you my input. :-b

Truthfully I don't really read the articles here, but I found yours to be interesting and worth the time. ;-D

Although I'm not sure how much my opinion counts, I dont think I could ever write an article. Not that my writing skills are poor, its just I don't think I would be able to compose a lot of quality thoughts into a piece of work.

But good job, I finally know what perlick means. :-D

now its your turn to help me out

Sorry I didn't comment in the other thread.. :-/

I thought you had a very well written article... ;-D ...I disagree with a couple of points you made in it...but you do make a compelling argument....and definately something worth thinking about.... :-)

but, I really did like your last line... ;-D

I think this is definitely a very promising debut piece, and I'm hopeful we'll be able to feature more of Paul's work in the future. ;-D

Just out of curiosity, why not? :-)
