About Jon
Thank You For Not ...

1) using profanity or any euphemisms for profanity
2) personally attacking other commenters
3) baiting other commenters
4) arguing for the sake of arguing
5) discussing politics
6) using hyperbole when something less will suffice
7) using sarcasm in a way that can be misinterpreted negatively
8) making the same point over and over again
9) typing "no-hitter" or "perfect game" to describe either in progress
10) being annoyed by the existence of this list
11) commenting under the obvious influence
12) claiming your opinion isn't allowed when it's just being disagreed with

I knew I wouldn't make it. I had zero command that day.

If I could only hit a curve.

Or fastball.

Or slider.

Or changeup.

Or upshoot.

Or fadeaway.

Or hesitation pitch.

Or spitter.

Rich Lederer got quicker action on the Clem Labine/Stan Musial situation than I did:

I have a friend that is close friends with a couple named Ned and Stacey.

Love the title, Jon.

May you all get good seats near freshly renovated and speedy hot dog lines and surrounding by smart, beautiful, gracious fans.

Bob won't buy tickets this morning; he'll be too busy nodding sympathetically at Gaylord Buzzard.

Continuing my trip through the Style section this morning, the display ad for The Last King of Scotland has this blurb: "Sexy, Thrilling and Fun."

Exactly the words that come to mind when I think of Idi Amin.

9 Yeah, she's definitely an Autumn. Earthy tones do her justice.
