I’m The Loser?
Ok, so someone clicked over to my blog after reading the following article that was posted back in May 2005. I read this garbage and decided to give back to the guys over there. I’ve decided to take down the links I had because upon further review, it seems a feud is going on between MLBlogs and the other site so I’ll pull for the winning team here. I also scrapped everthing else in the article except the comment on me….
Then there’s this late MLB addition: The Deep Fried Fish Blog with Bob Yacuzzo. He’s a chef, and he likes the Florida Marlins. Get it? Follow Bob’s adventures as he: tells us he has three kids. And writes about, uh, baseball games he’s seen on TV. Jesus, give us something we can use, Bob. A recipe would be nice.
Now, the person that wrote this doesn’t even state anything factual about me besides my name. He obviously just skimmed over the profile to find something "uninteresting". At least he didn’t cut on my Grandfather. Here is my overly late response via email, since I couldn’t find a place to do so on the blog.
Funny I didn’t notice the article earlier in the year, but whatever. I just finished reading the 5/19 piece about mlblogs and enjoyed how you personally bashed me and my blog. The person that wrote this article must have been in a serious hurry because they obviously didn’t do their homework properly.
First off, I have two kids, I am no longer a chef by profession and I don’t watch the Marlins on tv as I live in NY and can’t get the games , so I watch them on the net. This was all clearly stated in my profile which hasn’t changed since I started. If you are going to bash someone for doing something they enjoy, to become more reputable, I would recommend being correct with your statements.
Moving on, I find it hillarious how the author complains that we are promoting MLB product and we are paying them for it. Well genius, when you go out and buy those Nike shoes with the Swoosh on it guess what you’re doing? If you claim to be a sports fan and must be by writing about sports…I bet you have a hat or jersey you purchased of your favorite team. Hey, you did it again! Did you go to McDonalds today? Better cover up the golden arches on your cup or you just might be called a hypocrite. The point is that you have a bad argument and well, you ****.
Thanks for the link though. I’m sure it helped the traffic to my site considerably.
Anyway, I really don’t care too much about this. The best thing is that someone actually found my blog interesting enough to at least post a paragraph on.
Have a nice Holiday everyone.
