Anyhow, Opening Night was tonight, and since it used to be my job to make some comment about baseball, when this wonderful time of year rolled around, let me just say that that was a good comeback by San Diego. As for Brian Wilson, how quickly the mighty have fallen. The "fear the beard" era seems like it was a long time ago.
There are actually a lot of things that seem like they were all a long time ago, particularly things on BZP. Every once in a while, I've decided to go ahead and lurk for an evening on the forums, and just for the fun of it, changed my display name to "Sohcah, Toa of Trig." However, I unfortunately chose to lurk at a time when there was a tense topic about the political incorrectness (whether perceived or actual) of Ninjago. I remember that when I was younger, and first joined BZP, I couldn't have imagined things like that going on, yet in my last days here, it seemed like controversial topics like that was all people cared to talk about. While I miss a lot of things here, there are also quite a few things I'm glad I left behind, and I'm kind of disappointed that that was what I found when I decided to just visit.
However, it is always nice to go through the older posts and see what we had a little more fun discussing. I especially like going through old birthday topics as we tried to find some novel way of wishing somebody happy birthday. I also enjoy seeing that Opinion pieces are more common on the front page now than they used to be. Which is to say, they exist again. As long as that's true, I'll consider it one of my proudest contributions to the community to have dusted off old Pohatu.
Anyhow, it was nice visiting again. If you guys care to comment, I may lurk a little for the next few days to reply, but I do have tests this week to which I'll have to return my attention. Also, go Cubs, go!
I'll try to avoid it. I'd like to finish my time on BZP without getting into a McLintock! style mudfight.
Although the mudfight in McLintock! was actually rather friendly.
For a mudfight.
Unfortunately, I have no time to write about it right now since we're getting ready to leave for a family reunion tomorrow. Plus, I'm busy writing a final editorial for when I retire from the BZP staff, which will be either this Wednesday or the next. Let's just say that when it comes to punishing cheaters, I agree with former Commissioner Fay Vincent. Kennesaw Landis got it right when he banned the Black Sox, and Selig should push Major League Baseball to do the same with cheaters as they do with gamblers.
P.S. I may also kinda sorta slightly be distracted by Pikmin 3. But only kinda sorta slightly.
