Dear national sports media media, each of you writing your own overly intellectualized piece on Buster Posey,

I, a San Francisco Giants fan, understand that Scott Cousins did not break any rule.

I understand that there are decades of precedent of physical plays at the plate.

I am not a moron.

I do not want Cousins suspended, fined, or reprimanded in any way. I do not want him to die.

Most of you preface your arguments with statements to the effect of, “We feel bad for Buster” and, “what happened was horrible,” and that is exactly the point.

What happened was horrible and I have spent every moment since it happened wishing it had not and feeling sick.

Every time you click send on your jackass articles about how the play was “clean” or that “that’s baseball,” that sickening feeling in me is refreshed like someone pressing replay on a DVD of ‘Requiem for a Dream.’

You are not wrong.  You are too loud.

Please shut your mouth.


A Giants Fan

I’m just going to leave this here.

Hello, friends…

Obviously, I haven’t been posting here much, and I’ve been ignoring that personal tumblr I made forever ago entirely.

So, I think I’ll log out of here and hang out over there for a while. The URL is thecolorofmagic.tumblr.com. There will still be baseball, but there will be some other stuff too. Doctor Who, Disney, Sharks, my own pictures, whatever…

I’ll try and log on here once and a while still, so feel free to leave stuff in my ask box or whatever, but I might not check it every day.

Anyhow, come find me if you wish, or I’ll find you. I don’t want to actually lose touch with anyone. You all are awesome.

See you on the other side.

It is with profound sadness that I share with you that my continued battle with esophageal cancer is coming to an end. With the continued love and support of my wife, Nita, I have exhausted all options with respect to controlling this awful disease. My illness has progressed beyond my doctors’ expectation of cure.

I have spent the past decade of my life promoting hospice care and educating people on its benefits. I am very comfortable taking this next step and experiencing the compassionate care that hospice provides.

I am comforted by the fact that I am surrounded by my family and friends. I thank you for the outpouring of concern, prayers and encouragement that you have shown me. I look forward to spending my final days in comfort and peace with Nita by my side.

i just noticed you follow :D thank you!! i love your blog<3

I thought I *was* following you because you’re always on my dash. But no. :( Had to rectify that! Anyways, thanks! And love your stuff too! <3

Aside, Affeldt just walked a guy on 4 pitches. Bah.

I’m sick of hearing Giants fans be so damn cocky. They were by no means the best team in baseball last year, they just got EXTREMELY hot at the right time. And all their talk about winning it all again this year is just ridiculous. They’re a good team. But not THAT good. If they even make the playoffs this year it’s because the west is shittiest division in baseball.

The _L Central says “hello”. 



I don’t care if I don’t win a game all year as long as we win

I never saw a fucking ball go out of a fucking ballpark so fucking fast in my fucking life.

"I’ll always take care of him. I wish him a happy 80 more," said Giants equipment manager Mike Murphy, a bat boy when Mays and the Giants moved west in ‘58. "I think of him as a father, and he thinks of me as a son."…

"Willie walked into the house and figured out the situation immediately," Simmons recalled. "He said, ‘Come here. I need your help. These are my car keys. I need you to go out to the trunk and bring in a dozen baseballs. This is very important. Do you think you can help me?’

"And the kid just lit up. And when Willie walked into the sick kid’s room, that child just lit up, too."…

…”Willie, it’s a lifetime contract. You know what that means, right?” Magowan said.

"I know what it means. I still want an extension," Mays replied.

And so it was that Mays negotiated a deal that stretches into the afterlife. He will be paid one year after he’s gone, as an added extra layer of security for his wife, Mae, who has Alzheimer’s.
