I think I typed that yesterday too.....


I think so too. Fortunately the rules on trolling tend to be a little more relaxed here in the game threads. :)

I think sampleSize was referring to this story:

The Elephant's Child

Do you like Kipling?


Kipling? Not so much.

I'm more a fan of Rudyard.

Was that trolling? Sorry, totally meant to be more orcing.....

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Based on the ESPN gamecast, I don't think Pelf would have given up a single walk if the ump had more than a 6 sq. in. strike zone. You essentially have to groove one, or it's a ball.

I think you forgot to click your Ruby Slippers when you repeat that.

and another reason for technology to call balls and strikes. Screw tradition. Let the strike zone be standard

For future reference, that was a setup for "I don't know. I've never Kipled." You'll find the opportunity comes up all the time. Real Life Of The Party stuff there. :)

LOL... As you know... Sometimes you take the dog for a walk and it goes right past the fire hydrant.

You can lead a dog to water but you can't make him pee?
