Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

I don’t want to push Lou’s post Fantasy Baseball, the 1960s down too far, so I’m going to keep this quick and to the point. Something on the Wide World of the Interwebs got my goat today, and nobody, sir, gets my goat. Keith Law, ESPN dooode, alerted me that Daily Kos called a baseball blogger bourgeois. Alliteration in lieu of wit? Fo sho! Not to mention, only pretentious twits use the word bourgeois. Why the chin music on a baseball blogger? Because the Daily Kos wants someone other than that baseball blogger to win some $10K blogging scholarship that is voted on by you. (What qualifications do you have to award a scholarship? None. Which makes you perfectly qualified, I suppose.) So to all baseball bloggers out there that are reading this, take the initiative and post about this. To all of Razzball Nation that is reading this, you have but one choice in this election, Dave Cameron, who I don’t know from heffin’ Adam, for a $10K blogging scholarship. Vote now and vote often!

    I just voted for Cameron…so, who is he? (Pardon my ignorance, but I haven’t come across his blog).

    @Shogun: Thanks for voting, sorry I don’t have a sticker for you. He’s a Mariners blogger. What’s important, he was insulted because he’s a baseball blogger.

    @Grey: Aha, cool. YES WE CAN, DAVE CAMERON!

  4. To be fair, it was a Daily Kos supporter who called him bourgeois.

    comment goes beyond stupid, though.

    @The Baseball Zealot: See a truly bourgeois blogger would’ve got those facts right.

    @Grey: C’mon Dave!

    Dave’s not here, man.

    limited playing time during two seasons playing for the New Jersey Devils does not always qualify for blogging greatness.

    @Doug Ault: Wow, you’re definitely handling the hockey questions when Razzball plays Trivial Pursuit against other fantasy sites.

  10. If that guy’s work qualifies as bourgeois, what does that make Grey? Marxist? Riff-raff? An untouchable?

    @Grey: Looks like this Dave Cameron doode is gonna win. Props to BBall bloggers everywhere!

    @Rudy Gamble: Grey is an Apteryx, a wingless bird with hairy feathers. Or an Untouchable, if that means he teams up with Eliot Ness to fight the bad guys.

    @BigFatHippo: Doode, the bourgeois pig is still in first from what I’m seeing.

    I’m a Manx cat rubbing my fantasy dander in your eyes!

    @Grey: Yeah I saw that after I was finally able to vote. Vote early and vote often, just like the Irish in Gangs of New York.

    re: Manx cat, at least you have no tail to irritatingly swish in my eyes. Wait a minute, why am I licking a cat’s ass anyway?

    @Grey: I hope that’s a line from Gangs (don’t remember). Otherwise you just lost me doode.

    All I remember from Gangs of New York is Daniel Day Lewis with that big fricken meat cleaver. Does he look at scripts and decide on roles based on : A, Do I get to cleave someone? B, Do I get to bludgeon someone with a bowling pin?

    @BigFatHippo: It was my trash talking. What, no good?

    DDL is a God. That shizz is known throughout the world. Even in Zealand. Ask Steve.

    @Grey: Pretty lame for trash talking, you didn’t mention my mama.

    We don’t need a Kiwi’s opinion to determine the genius of Daniel Day Lewis. But it will be welcome, where you at Steve?

    @BigFatHippo: @Grey: the dude’s got it going on.

    An Irish Russell Crowe, if you will.

    @Steve: Seen the trailer of the new blockbuster “Australia”? Looks pretty good with Hugh Jackman and that saucy wench Kidman. I’m all for a good western, even if it is “down under.”

    When they gonna make “New Zealand” starring Steve?

    @Grey: How many times he gotta tell you man, there are no roos in NZ?

    @BigFatHippo: I’m excited to see Australia, but I worry about that director — Baz Something. I’m not a huge fan of his choices.

    EDIT: But is but.

  22. Steve says:

    @Grey: I just need to clarify something.

    Because I know you’re not the type to labour a joke, put my mind at rest and tell me you have actually looked at a map to see where NZ and Australia are, relative to one another…

    @Grey: I see your point, Moulin Rouge doesn’t exactly make him an expert on westerns. We’ll see.

    @Steve: Ha

    @Steve: Oh, Steve. I tease because I care. There’s obviously at least twenty-two asterisks between you and any ‘roos.

  25. Steve says:

    @Grey: In that case, you need new material ;-)

    @BigFatHippo: Ugh, that Rouge movie and Romeo & Juliet. I had to watch R & J repeatedly in high school to try to get laid with some girl. I blame my extended virginity on Baz.

    @Steve: Bana, you got 15 minutes of Ovaltine! You need to switch it up.

    @Grey: Sorry to disrupt the flow of banter, but what you talking about Willis?

    @Grey: It’s a line from Seinfeld. He’s talking to his standup friend and telling him he needs new material b/c the friend has too much Ovaltine material.

    Bana: Why do they call it Ovaltine? The mug is round; the jar is round… they should call it Roundtine.

    It’s funny in it’s dreadfullness. I was making an allusion.

    @Grey: Thankfully, I didn’t have to watch either one. Might have had to gouge my own eyes out.

    If you don’t treat your girlfriend to Lone Star State of Mind, I might gouge yours out. Virtually of course, but still it might hurt. POKE, ouch.

  31. Steve says:

    @Grey: Gotcha.

    I think maybe next time either of us says something that the other (usually me) doesn’t get, we should just reply ‘Ha!’ and charge on regardless!

    Nothing spoils a joke like an explanation.

    @BigFatHippo: Really? Joshua Jackson? All right, I’ll suggest it. I can see it now, “Sweetie, BigFatHippo says we have to rent this.”

    @Steve: We got a deal.

    @Grey: That’ll prolly work, who can deny a hippo? Besides, she’s a chick, she’ll be all for it. Then you’ll laugh your ass off when it’s not a chick flick.

    Last time I mention it, either you watch it or you don’t. Just be in the right mood. I’m a firm believer in the mood makes the movie. For instance, I watched Talk To Me after a particularly bad day at work and didn’t enjoy it. Months later found it very funny and socially relevant. PTown with Petey Green!!!!!!!!!!!

    @Eric W: Yup – we’re all very short ;-)

    Film was shot here with lots of local cast and crew, was directed by a New Zealander and a the special effects were done here.

    Does it make me proud to be a New Zealander? Not really. But then it doesn’t make me unproud, if you know what I mean.
