People Are Retroactively Stealing My Ideas and Doing Them Better
Posted By David G Temple On August 15, 2012 @ 1:55 pm In Discovery,Everything's Amazing | 8 Comments
I had a great idea for a post, where I would assemble a baseball team using only members of the Wu-Tang Clan, and fictionalize a team meeting in the club house.
A great idea, no doubt. And so original! Surely, no one had considered transplanting hip-hop artists into a baseball team. What brilliance!
However, just to make sure, I did what any good writer in constant fear of being called a plagiarizer does. I Googled it.
Lo and behold, someone had thought of this premise before. Also, they executed it far better than I could have.
I have been a voyeur of Flip Flop Fly Ball for some time, though this post slipped through my fingers.
This infographic, outlining a fictitious game between the aforementioned Clan and Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, is beyond terrific. Clicking the above hyperlink will bring you to the original post, complete with play-by-play. Take note that the umpires are the members of Led Zeppelin.
I love this so much, you guys. Bless you, baseball nerds.
