Richard, You Knew the Job was Dangerous When You Took It...

It's been nearly a week, and two scintillating (if I do say so myself) posts since I began contributing to this ever-so-fine blog. And I've learned so much in the interim.

For example, it's less than polite to alter the fonts at a blog you've only recently been invited to contribute to. Yeah, I should've known that, but still...

I confess to using various and sundry fonts that struck my fancy on my initial posts. 'Twon't happen again, be assured. Nonetheless, I offer a brief primer to bloggers looking to expand their staff:

Inviting a stranger to contribute to your website is not unlike asking a chick to move in with you; soon enough, your furniture will be rearranged while you're at work, post-impressionist prints will adorn the walls of your living room, and all those beer coasters you collected from your favorite bar will have been replaced by linen napkins and designer placemats from BedBath&Beyond.

There's no game today, which leaves my heart empty. Not literally empty, as this would insult my beloved wife, Robin. Just a little more empty than on game days.

And for both of you readers, howza 'bout you lettin' us know in the comment section what the Padres oughtta do with Punchless Burroughs? I hear the USA Women's Softball squad needs a utility infielder.

(Richard: Well, Sean is playing better defensive third base than anyone else in the NL...)

The editor has been doing a really nice job on my posts. :-)

Hopefully your readers do not include avid fans of women's softball or else they might take offense at your sarcastic comment and the inference that burroughs should be playing with them.

Mr. Flowers, you must be talking about Richard, as I can't imagine anyone wanting to read my material. In fact, I can't imagine why I would want them to.
Richard is quite good, however.
