Seriously, be warned I don't intend on encouraging people to watch their moods or their language here, so keep your kids out if you don't like this kind of exposure, or turn away now if you're easily offended. I'm sure even that I will be the least of the offenders, because I still just don't have the words.
Because the press conference is pissing me the fuck off to high god damned hell. And because we shouldn't be expressing our ire in the same threads that we want to use to honor Bonds. This is for all your swearing, all your nastiest IMGs (no porn, I suppose... even though a nice pic of a testical flogging might accurately represent your feelings right now), all your hate.
Listening to the press conference I could only think two things the whole time. 1) Peter Magowan can go get shit on, and 2) Brian Sabean doesn't like it. He was saying all of Magowan's words, but every now and then I'd hear him say something like "the irony is he's still a great player," or something utterly sincere about Barry, or his pessimism for next year without Bonds that makes me read between the lines. I think Sabean knows it would be better to have Barry, and he's playing Peter's game.
And for that he can go get shit on, too. Fuck. Fuck fuck fucking coward shithead. I've always respected Brian's candor and what I thought was an ability to stick to his own guns, but he's folded like a fucking cheap umbrella with holes in it.
That's a start, anyway. I still can't really put it into words. But if you have a bone to pick, pick it here, and pick it with serious venom.
For once, if you don't have anything not nice to say, for FUCK's sake don't not say it somewhere the fuck else.
