Hello Twin’s Daily Participants,

As the representative for the family of Bark’s Lounge, after his death, I was given the task of sorting through his personal affairs and tying them up. I guess that is why I am submitting this. I suppose it is some form of closure, but this is what I am paid to do.

After reading through some of the material Mr. Lounge submitted on this website, I am under the impression he was a not so well liked member of this community.

A big part of my job is to be objective, but after reading some of the stuff he chose to put out there and also having access to his personal journal, I reached the conclusion that he had no business being a member of a Sport’s team based internet chat site, his mindset and personal views, in my opinion, were not a missing puzzle piece for Twin’s Daily.

Mr. Lounge has definitely made some mistakes, and I would say this is on that list. His family requests that I send you their apologies. They have been concerned for him for a long time and unfortunately the thing they feared the most became a reality.

In his journal, he alluded to the fact that he was not well received on this site and seemed to be regretful. My feeling is that he enjoyed baseball quite a bit, but baseball mixed with his other interests and his mode of expression were not meant to pan out for him on this site.

One last note, I found this poem in Mr. Lounge’s journal. It was dated November 21, 2012. This is the note I leave upon you:

Twin’s Daily

An orgy of malcontents
In this brackish water
Too much love and hate

The mix is intoxicating
The hangover is consuming
Pitches, hits, errors and open wounds

The salt has been this past season
I sense the agony in the whole
The offseason manhandles us

Can we be found anew?

    It's sad when an antagonist dies, but even sadder when:
    "In a twist of irony, Bark's Lounge, after being accused of being a racist by unknown sources on an internet chat site, was murdered in Kagoshima, Japan by Yakuza hitmen hired by the Klu Klux Klan."
    Sure hope no one on an internet chat site accuses me of racism.
    Goodnight, Bark's.

    I don't think that he was disliked. It's just that no one thought he was as funny as he did.

    I like Bark... He stepped out on the limb every once in awhile and sometimes the limb snapped on him.
