    So tonite im going to Dell Diamond to cover Manny Ramirez return to the MLB fold. Making his debut with the triple A round rock express after being in Taiwan, there is a lot of interest. Any suggestions? 8)

    Fix your caps lock? Otherwise, just set the scene and let the material do its job. Don't try to overwrite it.

    My suggestion? Nuke your profile, learn to spell, properly construct sentences and grow up. Then, and only then, create a new profile and return to join us.

    You've thoroughly embarrassed yourself in 25 posts.

    Is Dell Diamond Dustin's brother?
  6. All of those writers in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre had their chance at a big break this weekend, as well.

    For a weekly, go with a 16-page special section with a ton of grip-and-grins. Maybe add a column on how you witnessed a historical moment and your life will never be the same.

    No, it actually IS Dustin Diamond. He was so hard up for the money and fame that he legally changed his name to shill for Dell, which has desperately searched for someone to replace the "dude, you're getting a Dell!" guy. I presume the Dell guy is now doing porn. Snuff porn, if there's a God.

    Thunder? Mildly interesting story. Manny has to deliver, of course. He might actually talk since he wants something. Otherwise he'll smile and pretend he speaks no English.

    Why is somebody who works at a small daily in West Texas traveling to watch a 41-year-old baseball player participate in a minor league game in the Austin area?

    Because he begged his boss to cover it and is doing it off the clock.

    ...or he has the day off and likes free press-box food.

    If he's gonna drive that far, at least take a look in his locker for any prescription bottles ...
