  3. I am convinced that the Simpsons ranks with Shakespeare and the King James Bible in its influence on the English language as it is currently spoken.

  14. I contain multitudes, man.

    In all fairness, I complain about a LOT of different things. A couple weeks ago I complained about the second wild card: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.php/two-wild-cards-in-2012-i-hope-not/

    A week before that, I wrote about Prince Fielder coming to Detroit and his strained relationship with his gambling-addicted father: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.php/prince-fielder-his-estranged-father-and-200-million/

    The week before that, I wrote about the retirement of Orlando Cabrera: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.php/orlando-cabrera-once-traded-for-nomar-says-no-mas/

  18. You do realize The Simpsons is a TV show, right? Its not a baseball team

    Comment by Asshole — February 22, 2012 @ 7:54 pm

  19. I seem to recall hearing that once before, from a wizened gentleman in tattered robes, his wild eyes darting left and right and his long, matted hair flowing in the wind. “The Simpsons — yar, it ain’t a baseball team. It’s a TV show. ‘Oo know ‘at, son, don’cha?” At that, he bared his games at me in a dreadful grin, and I ran all the way from 7/11 back to my subdivision .
