I am really excited about the World Cup, which is coming at a good time for me. Time to learn a new sport. Stopped by the mall on the way from work and picked up a book on soccer fundamentals and a video game, EA’s 2006 FIFA World Cup. Thought I would spend a little time and effort educating myself on the game.
Decided I would sneak a peak at MLBlogs, and, lo and behold, there is a feature on World Cup Soccer! Mad Dog is graciously hosting a site for us, Maddog’s World Cup Reports. And one of the featured bloggers was my good friend, Thomas over at ‘Stros Bro. Couldn’t resist popping in for a peep, considering he keeps needling me that if only I could only write as well as he, I would be as successful at this blogging thing. I admit, I did find an absolute pearl: “Due to my lack of ignorance.. “. I’ve spent a quarter of a century studying Latin, Greek, Shakespeare–you name it–to become a proficient writer, but I could never come up with a gem like that. I’m envious.
Does it strike anybody else as odd he is opining about a subject which he confesses he has absolutely no knowledge of or interest in? And he makes the feature section of MLBlogs!?
Bring in the clowns.
