    I love it. Just fantastic.

    What would you do as an editor, though, if you had a 900-word hole and 423 came back?

    I really hate Plaschke.

    But this column is kinda funny.

    Not funny. Not professional. Totally lame.

    I disagree. For not "giving his best effort," I thought it was clever as hell...

    For anyone that doesn't think that was his best effort and intentional, wow, how are you missing the boat. Great column.

    it would have looked even better with the white space in the column rail. That would have rocked.
  8. That was a great, great column...whomever said this wasn't professional simply isn't playing attention. great idea, great execution, great column.

    This is why he's one of the best writers in the biz. Clever angle with a tone that matches the teams' play and what fans witnessed. Outstanding, I think.
