A bit of a hectic week in the real world - filling in as the Mets beat writer and then taking care of some stuff upon my return to New York - meant that the blog didn't receive its standard attention. I already have apologized to the judges for the paucity of dialogue here.
But rules are rules, and we've got medals to distribute:
--The bronze goes to Sandy, who reacted to Donald Trump dissing Alex Rodriguez on "Celebrity Apprentice":
--The silver goes to Whynot, who responded thoughtfully to my question (which, in itself, was thrown in to add a touch of meat to an otherwise empty post) about how he would treat Carlos Beltran upon his return to the Mets' universe:
--And the gold goes to Dennis, who didn't care for JE's assertion that Dennis was the last person to know about a recent news item:
Why did this comment get the gold? While I can't speak for the judges, it is obvious that Dennis intentionally alluded to Pee-Wee Herman's "I meant to do that" scene, from "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure," with his defense.
