I received this stunning piece of hardware from Chris. If your attention span is longer than mine and you are smarter than I am (chances are that if you can feed yourself, you qualify for both), you'll enjoy the hell out of Maugeritaville. Which is not to say that I don't like it, just that - ah, Jesus, I don't know what the hell I am saying. I'm just in a piss-poor mood and trying to be gracious about someone doing me a favor. It's hard, man. Go read his God damned blog. It is outstanding.
But let me be indignant for a minute: This award was hurled like grapeshot at dozens of blogs, and it don't stop there. I think I am supposed to fire off a few rounds, too. Undoubtedly, all of the recipients are fine bloggers, and I am not ungrateful. My problem, however, is that it is called the BEST Blog Award, and as the rueful Scotsman said, "there can be only one." I am sure I am not it. (Whose idea was it to make Sean Connery a gay Spaniard in that movie, anyway?)
Thank you, Chris. And the answer to your peevish query about Yankee and Dodger Stadiums is something akin to "blow me." Unless those teams only have one player in the entire organization, the names should be plural. Because they exist does not make them right. It makes them abominations, as matter of fact, and I will beat Derek Jeter's fidgety ass if you disagree with me, or do anything short of continuing the award...um...awarding on a weekly basis.
