Boy, Corco, you REALLY had a lot of time on your hands this weekend :-)

I was too busy moving people this weekend to watch the M's, but I did sit down and watch an inning or so of that game. Even in that brief inning, I still could've answered about half of these questions...

I'm telling you (and Munchausen would agree), they're REALLLY struggling to keep the ideology alive. Is this really baseball they're selling? I don't think so...

Thanks for keeping the blog alive this weekend while I was killing myself lifting heavy furniture! I knew I could count on Corco!

Err, PosiPaul, that'd be "Citizen K," not "Munchausen." I know, I know, name changes are a pain to keep straight. Just think about when you changed your name from "Subjugative Saul" how many Greeks couldn't keep it straight...

As far as the broadcast quiz, I'll have to concur with Posi that I was too busy to watch the game (as I tend to be every single day.) I really don't even know who they were playing or whether or not they even won any games (probably not.) But if they're pimping the extracurricular stadium activities that hard I'd have to think the team wasn't doing too well. (Or else more fans than I thought read with clarity my exposé of Major League Baseball's true objectives and it affected them in the manner I intended.)

No, I was indeed keeping the distinction clear. Since we haven't seen "Munchausen's" obituary yet, I'm assuming that Munchausen is very much still on life support. Citizen K, too, would agree of course, but it was Munchausen's discovery (and ultimately the cause of his demise) that I was pointing out. I will, of course, be more likely to get things straight once we know more the status of Munchausen.

I'm not going to give any hints as to where you can find the answers to these questions (for those of you who seriously might obsessively be sending e-mails to Corco to win that autographed baseball), but I have developed a respiratory issue with all that dust I was kicking up this weekend....

And another thing.

Why the ghuck ("gh" pronounced like the "gh" in "rough") don't they spend the money and energy on building a good baseball club (i.e. spending the money they DO spend wisely) instead of shoving a crappy team and their snooty services (which by now the people who are still paying attention to this team regularly -- i.e. poor college students and regular joes who don't have a huge entertainment budget -- would never be able to afford) down our collective throats?


(And, being the antithesis of Corco, that sentence was about as long as you can get. I just wanted people to appreciate the white space between Corco's thoughts, and to let him know that it's OK for him to post several short comments in a row...)
