Another great season, this Chase Utley story is great though:

Late last season, with the Dodgers up by seven runs in the eighth inning, a young, inexperienced player stole third base with two outs, infuriating the Milwaukee Brewers. Utley led off the top of the ninth and told Brewers catcher Martin Maldonaldo to have the pitcher drill him with a pitch. “It’s the only way [our] guy is going to learn there are ramifications for every action,” Utley told Maldonado.

I just heard about Halladay's passing. I don't follow baseball but even I know he was a outstanding talent and holds some ridiculous marks (20th perfect game, 2nd postseason no-hitter). R.I.P.

Yea this was a real bummer. I don’t think there was anyone more respected in baseball when he played. One of my favorite athletes ever.

Fucking brutal. Young guy, young family, and it sounded like he had aspirations going forward after a cool down period post-career.

There's a reason everyone outside of Massachusetts refers to those people as "Mass-holes", Kilgore.

One of my favorite sayings. My dad was a Long Island guy who went to and graduated from MIT. He hated all the locals up there as he said most were assholes.

New Yorkers (in the big sense) are not exactly known for their soft edges ...

There's a reason good comics, and bad attitudes emanate from the Northeast ... cold weather sucks.

My dad probably had Aspergers looking back at his life. He was 5’ 10” and 130lbs as a freshman in college. He was an introvert as an adult so I can only guess what he was like when younger. He wasn’t your classic New Yorker.

I on the other hand is a classic NJ fuckbag. I’m normal unless you aren’t then I just let nature do it’s thing with my personality :pacman:

Which should tell you a little something about "Mass-holes".

Eh, I tend to think of it as everyone hates everyone else for one reason or another. Tribalism at its best.

That's a false narrative if there ever was one.
