A marvelous piece, although your segue into MALB analysis after the opening’s rich and descriptive travel writing ALMOST made me suspicious that you did not, in fact, post this from Malaysia, durian in hand.
Regardless, I am filled with wanderlust and thrilled at my newfound potential to be a professional baseball player for the Nazghuls. The line “Oh, I used to play professional baseball for the Nazghuls” would work on such a wide variety of female bar patrons, I incorrectly suspect.
Upon further review, I believe the BFM must have destroyed the MALB with the It’s evil powers. It is obvious the BFM dabbles with the dark side, as the first of its blog roll compatriots is a Sith Lord.
