Oh, holy freaking kittens.
I have officially achieved Barry Sanders' numberdom.
I AM OLD.
So, yeah, since I have 13 hours of class tomorrow, effectively squashing any and all pretense of fun, could everyone just, I dunno, win tomorrow? Because I'd appreciate it. And it would be nice.
Also, A-Rod is launching his own MLB-sponsored website, complete with journal. I laughed so hard I could barely see to type. Oh, Alex. When the Flash animation at the top kicked in, I literally started crying, I was laughing so hard. The floating photos (including one of his face, grimacing, as though someone has a death grip on his testicles), the signature writing itself... the ridiculous brushstroke lines in that logo he's using... I can't even get into it in proper detail. I just.. I keep laughing. And the fact that the whole thing is embedded in the official MLB site... tears. In. My eyes.
AROD.com. Man, I'm surprised the domain name hadn't already been taken by a porn site.
I mean, Manny's website has some serious, serious issues (chief among them the pointless intro, the bouncing text, the extraordinarily poor graphics, and the fact that the entire thing appears to have been designed by a budding goth 5 year old with dark rage in his soul and a fetish for gradients), but at least its particular horrors are not officially sponsored by Major League Baseball.
