    well almost. Interesting story in WSJ - certainly a different look at things.

    Very good piece. I almost couldn't get past the lede, and certainly had to stop reading about halfway through, out of sheer disgust. But in this case I consider it a sign of respect to the writer for adequately capturing the subject's, shall we say, weird penchant.

    I've lost track of how many sentences I've written over the years.
    Never did write any like this: "Someone pulled something out of their nose and he ate it for $400," Price said.

    That is awesome. And by God do baseball players have too much money.

    Wondered about that myself.

    I remember hearing stories about 20 years ago about Mets picther Julio Machado, who ate all kinds of weird stuff (bugs, etc...). But I think most of that was in a cultural context. You really can't make that kind of argument after eating someone's boogie.

    I would drink a gallon of milk in 12 minutes. For considerably less than $3,000.

    I used to be able to do this or at least come close. Then we had children, and my wife breast-fed. I haven't been able to consider having even a glass of milk for nearly 15 years.

    The part about getting punched in the twig and berries for $50 a pop, with a bonus after 10!, made me both guffaw and cringe.
  11. We once had a guy in the newsroom who would eat anything. Drank a jar of pickle juice in the newsroom and promptly threw up in his trash can. Priceless!

    That was funny.

    What do they get for meal money on the road? If he gets anywhere near what the players get, he can probably live off of that.

    It's also probably where the players' cash comes from.
