Hell yes, I read everything he wrote about five years ago. I don't read him much anymore, because my internet spare time is spent here. I still catch an occasional article he writes.
I don't get the reference though. I trust I am unknowingly quoting one of his memes? I know every time I read someone saying, "I just threw up a little in my mouth," I think, "asshole, you are ripping off Bill Simmons." Maybe they don't know that either?
I almost started a thread titled, "Why Do The Mariners Exist?" I didn't because I know we are basically the only baseball fans on the board.
Simmons does the "(Nodding)" thing in his mailbags pretty often. The thread should in fact be called "How many human children would you gut for the opportunity to touch Felix Hernandez?"
I read Simmons when I can catch him. Cleveland sports fans hated him until LeBron left because he kept saying LBJ would go to the Clippers. But now he sort of bashes LBJ, so we don't hate him so much. I think he's funny but I'm sick of the reality TV schtick.
huge baseball fan. i plan on catching the Mariners/Orioles game on the Tuesday night after Sasquatch (5/31) before we fly back to the east coast the next day.
i've been wanting to see that stadium for ages.
I know you'll probably be in pretty bad shape Tuesday night, but you should try to show up for BP so you have some time to walk around the stadium. SAFECO is a pretty awesome place.
A few key notes: You should probably check out the Intentional Wok just because is has the most awesome name ever.
Feel free to make fun of the Mariners, their fans don't care about baseball anyway.
I don't know how tight security is, but see if you can make it to the small second deck. They have padded seats and waiters that bring you food. Just hold your menu in the air and they come down and take your order.
Not sure that you're an O's fan (so this probably doesn't apply to you). DO NOT expect to stand up and clap for the opposing team with 2 outs and 2 strikes in the bottom of the ninth. Some security guard will inevitably have had one too many mochas and pull the Sasquatch Security power trip.
