Brandon Crawford makes it look easy
I’d appreciate some big, early leads in this 4-game series in Colorado (especially after the horrific 2-game series in Toronto). And I hate to say it, but something(s) needs to be done about the poor starting pitching (particularly concerning - but not confined to - Vogey. Mind you, I’ve not given up on him yet).
I like. Very much.
I love a good album cover. So far, Iron & Wine’s Ghost On Ghost is my favorite of the year (that I’ve seen). Apparently, the photo is from Barbara Crane’s Private Views. The album’s pretty great as well.
Absolutely loving this song.
LET’S GO GIANTS!!!
Baseball is back, baby!
ALEX SUMMERS TO THE WORLD: “NO MORE MUTANTS”
From Uncanny Avengers #3 (released March 27, 2013) by Rick Remender, Olivier Coipel, Mark Morales, and Laura Martin with Larry Molinar.
I don’t see myself as born into a mutant cult or religion. Having an X-gene doesn’t bond me to anyone. It doesn’t define me.
In fact, I see the very word “mutant” as divisive. Old thinking that serves to further separate us from our fellow man. We are all humans. Of one tribe. We are defined by our choices, not the makeup of our genes.
So please, don’t call us mutants. The “m” word represents everything I hate.
I can’t say that I agree with Alex’s sentiments here - particularly the last two sentences. I read it as him preaching assimilation, rather than inclusion and acceptance (i.e. integration). Hiding your differences rather than celebrating them.
You’re a mutant. It is just one of many aspects of your character. It doesn’t have to define you, but don’t deny who and what you are.
Embrace your commonalities as well as your differences.
