Man-Love, Baseball, and Unfettered ___-jectivity


A showcase of baseball as metaphor, sport as art, the use of the “everyday” to discuss the “permanent” and, most delightfully for me personally, one of many reasons why I love my husband. No one else I know would “get it” – and my sense of humor – as well as he does. The snippet below (from him, describing a thread he was reading on SOSH)  is gorgeous not only because it is obscure and hyperbolic, but also because it is beautiful and right. It’s excellent.

 

aside: the context: The Sons of Sam Horn (SOSH) is an overly erudite self-aware (self-important, too ;P ) Red Sox super-fan site. The except below is from a conversation online about the stellar Jackie Bradley Jr.
