April 18, 2006...Best Day Ever?: What a great bunch of FPPs today. Really a pleasure to drop in and luxuriate in all that SportsFilter can be. Kudos justgary, rcade, lilnemo, rocket88, and dusted for some excellent posts that were so Anti-Yahoo it made the world seem like a better place. Not that the other posts today were bad, but those five really did the trick for me. Viva SportsFilter!

I see you have not given up on the stretching a new muscle in our presence. No it was a good day. Yay team and stuff!

whatever. this place sucks now. i remember when i was a n00b, we'd have 10 great FPPs a day in the morning, and 10 in the afternoon...in the snow and barefoot.

This is all because I ended yesterday on a hockey thread.

I'm going to vote best day ever unless someone can think of a better one...

Day's not over, guys. Maybe we should celebrate this tomorrow, lest somebody jumps in with some thread that results in the utter destruction of the site. Didn't you even READ the superstition post?

I see you have not given up on the stretching a new muscle in our presence. I feel vaguely mocked. Didn't you even READ the superstition post? Yeah, but, a la not talking to somebody throwing a no-hitter, we weren't going to jinx it. Way to go, Ballpeen, you've just opened the door for a combo Barry Bonds/Terrell Owens thread.

9 links, none to espn or yahoo, not that there's anything wrong with such links, but you know, it's nice...

I feel vaguely mocked. What? You're saying I need to add more gusto?

What? You're saying I need to add more gusto? I find that swear words work best.

Due to some strange quirk in the world wide web, all of the crappy posts are out there suspended in the ether. I just saw this one float past my office window: Bonds with no homers Are you kidding me steroids tests don't work when Melonhead can't even hit a HOMERUN in the first 12 games??!!?? posted by DodgerFan9999 at 3:30 p.m. CST on April 18

P.S. to the website administrators -- the time stamp for posts and comments incorrectly shows up as standard time (e.g., CST), when it should be daylight time (e.g., CDT).

Kudos justgary, rcade, lilnemo, rocket88, and dusted Thanks, dick.

That's a neat site, holden. Thanks for the link.

Thanks, dick. Feelin' chippy today, eh? Don't worry, as long as you've got the love of a good Ying Yang Mafia, you needn't concern yourself with me.

posted by The_Black_Hand at 06:11 PM on April 18

You're a little chippy today too, TBH. Maybe you both should stretch a certain muscle and relieve some tension. YYM is googling himself so maybe that's what has yerfatma so chippy.

Agreed it was a very good day. And I was worried that it was getting a bit all-detroit around here. also it was my birthday today

posted by Amateur at 09:15 PM on April 18

Happy Birthday dude!

posted by jerseygirl at 09:30 PM on April 18

What a great day to take the day off! (I'm sure there was no correlation whatsoever.) Happy birthday, Amateur!

Happy birthday from the skydive house Amateur!

njsk8r20, don't mistake "old and cranky" for "chippy." Speaking of old, Happy Birthday, Amateur!

Arrgh all the things I've missed this Easter break. Curse rural Kentucky. As for the rest of the above conversation that I just now have read, I think I will walk away from this conversation and find what else I missed.
