Let's not forget this is the Reactionary Hurl

Posted by Ryan Jerz on Tuesday October 16, 2007.

Another installment of the Reactionary Hurl, the series in which I take the easy road to blogging and react to news in short, opinionated, useless snippets. And just to be clear, please read the initial Reactionary Hurl so you can understand the context.

  • David Cross is funny. And Larry the Cable Guy isn’t. Therefore, I am much more inclined to like what David Cross had to say to Larry the Cable Guy than I am to even get what Larry said about David. On a depressing note, did anyone else see the sign behind home plate late in the Rockies-Diamondbacks game last night? It read, “Get R Done.” Finally, no recent Twitter updates from Diamondbacks fans. Wonder where they went. (Kottke)
  • RGJ inundated with letters about…wait for it…football. And they should be. This particular hurling should in no way be construed as an admission of me not understanding any particular issue (although there are actually issues I do not understand, so one should also not assume I claim to know all). It should be taken for what it is, that I noticed that there are letters about football, and that with the game I saw on Sunday night, I believe people should be expressing how they felt about that game through letters to the local newspaper. That is all. (RGJ)
  • Hurry, everyone feel sorry for Scott Boras. I mean, all the guy has ever done is put the integrity and his own love of baseball above all other considerations, especially money. And to think that now his clients who have been linked to steroids are having a hard time? Who would’ve thought. Also, baseball owners are capitalist bastards who don’t care about poor players (or their agents). (Deadspin)
  • Hmmm, not sure what to think of this. Which is worse: that he was busted for outstanding parking tickets in Fernley (no offense to any of my friends in Fernley) or that he was at a conference that went by three different names in an attempt to get certain pundits to recognize its existence only to be largely ignored by those pundits? I’ll go with both. It is now just as embarrassing to get nabbed for outstanding Fernley parking tickets as it is to attend Blogging Man/CLC/Rightoberfest. Man, Ed, now that the conference has passed and I’m thinking about it, we totally should have done that. (Inside Nevada Politics)
  • Official date for Leopard. Cool. So this begs the question, which cat is next. Let me be the first person that I know of to suggest one. Cougar. The marketing possibilities are phenomenal. (Wired)
  • Anyone want to call me to remind me this is on?. I always miss Frontline, the best show I never see. I really, really, really don’t want to miss this. Tonight at 10, on Channel 5 (do you have any idea how many times I’ve heard those words in my life?). (KNPB)
  • Why do you hate quotation marks? In a follow-up to the last Reactionary Hurl, I bring you the Flickr Pool that demonstrates the seemingly irrational hatred of the use of quotation marks in signage. Frankly, I’m saddened by this. How else is someone with a very “important” product supposed to “draw attention” to the fact that they have the product “available”? (Daring Fireball)
  • Every time this happens, I die a little. More on this later. (Reno and Its Discontents)
  • I love this photo. I think the biggest reason is that the person who took it probably did more creative thinking than any other sports photographers did at that media event. I don’t know it, and haven’t seen any other photos from there, but I have seen my share of sports photos. Heck, I’ve taken quite a few basketball photos and never pulled something like this. Well done. (Flickr)
