Will Carroll's question about why we blog ("What's in it for me?"), sent me into deep thought over the weekend. Then, I happened to come across a whole list of old SNL Deep Thoughts on Eve Tushnet's site. I think the answer to Will's question is this one:
Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed, and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by Man.
I couldn't have said it better myself. And I encourage you to come back to my site, because Tushnet also posts:
Before a mad scientist goes mad, there's probably a time when he's only partially mad. And this is the time when he's going to throw his best parties.
Speaking of parties, there's a new one starting up today called Hardball Times. Sounds like fun.
The five of you who read my mad scientist essay about our two brain systems will recognize that 99.9% of the baseball blogs out there are trying to talk to our logical System 2 Android Brains. Half of our brains are being neglected by the baseball blogosphere! So when a blog makes the attempt to talk to our System 1 Animal Brain, it should be encouraged.
That's why I encourage you to go check out Mariner Musings, where Peter White has a whole series of haiku about Mariner players.
