Welcome back for another episode of Soylent Green is People. The SGiP bandwagon is really filling up quickly here.
We actually go to press on Friday, but I'm loving the enthusiasm.
What? No. I want people to be excited. The fact that I've made it this far into the season without having been taken off the air just makes me want to sing.
Um, that wasn't exactly the song that I had in mind, truth be told. Not much of a musical guy.
They're free to listen to whatever they like. I'm not here to tell people what music to prefer.
Exactly. While I consider my taste in music impeccable, I can allow for variations in preference.
I'm sorry, but I'm a sucker for a good Sufjan Stevens reference. His work is a staple around my house, especially around Christmas time. Throw on some Sufjan, maybe flick over to the Browns for background noise...
My goodness, if you're not just too cool for school, I don't know who is. I can't wait until European soccer gets too "mainstream" for you and you have to switch over to something else nobody has heard of yet. Ethiopian camel racing or something. Scripted shows on sports channels, maybe.
Fine. I'm sure too many other people would be watching for you to be interested in it anyway. Speaking of other people watching, occasionally one of the senior members of the site will rise above the cloud layer to drop a knowledge bomb of mythic proportions on all of us. Members don't get much more senior than our resident Methuselah, and Chuck unleashed a knowledge MOAB on the discussion about attendance this week.
Nailed it. I once high fived a wheelchair-bound man who was still holding his glass eye in his other hand because he had taken it out to polish it (or whatever) right before Albert Belle went deep. You (probably) don't get that kind of experience in your living room. If you can, go to a game. Here's the rest of your week in green.
I now realize we have been debating semantics all along.
Do you mean in this conversation, or for the whole history of LGT?

Instead of writing an ending for this week's column, I'm empowering you each to write your own.
