Pissing Matches & Red Sox Fans

Note~ This post was written specifically for the Sawxheads.com blog and posted there August 22, 2008.

I’m a relative newcomer to this site. There’s only one of my ‘friends’ that I have actually met. Since I now live about 3k miles from Fenway, it makes it difficult to actually meet any of you in person, although I wouldn’t mind that at all, not at all. I started posting on the News & Rumors Board, only to discover the Blogs Board later and that it was a better forum for some of what I wrote. Then I started reading some of the other blogs.

I’m not liking what I’m reading, folks. I have no idea who started what, who’s at fault, who didn’t turn the other cheek, who threw more fuel on the flames, or who broke out the fan, and I don’t want to know, but IT ALL SUCKS! This bullshit has to stop or else there will be a lot of us not checking in quite so often to this site. (Sawxhead.com administration~ Are you paying attention?) I know I have my favorite blogs elsewhere, and I’m sure most of you know where to get your Sox info elsewhere, as well. I have no desire to see one fan spamming another’s post to death. I’m tired of seeing heartfelt posts getting hammered to death. I’m tired of seeing fans posting to no end, fans that need to get away from their computer a little more often. Yeah, there are a lot of crappy posts that go up and should get dinged, but I’m mostly referring to these pissing contests. You guys know who you are. It’s time to call a truce, or you just may see a lot more ‘blocked users’ and a lot less traffic here, taboot. If you really feel like you need to say something that’s inflammatory, spiteful, and hateful, send it off the public boards! Send it directly to that one fan. Crap on the yanks all you want, but don’t be wastin’ the time of the rest of us by crappin' on fellow fans! I see 152 comments to a blog and think that it’s a thought provoking post, only to find out some jackass has been sending the same stoopid comment over and over and over again!

Christ, you guys are making us look worse than Yankee fans! Get a life already, step away from the keyboard, take a deep breath, and go do something else for a while! Come back after you pulled that stick out of your butt and go delete all those gdfn ridiculous comments. Let’s make this a little more pleasant for all of us. To paraphrase Rodney King, “Can’t we all just get along?” I mean this is the Red Sox ferkrissakes! Not some hot-button political issue. Just be glad the skanks 200 miles to the south are below the Sox and freefalling!

OK, now go get your shovels and start cleaning up.
