4/3 @1:10 Kansas City Royals vs Detroit Tigers

Recommended Posts


Another 1:10 start if the rain doesn’t come into play. I like these start times.

It rained last night and there are worms on the patio.  So factor that into the equation however you will.

This would be a great starting sentence for your novel.

Slow down.  We all know I couldn't write a novel if I was spotted the paper and the words.

An excellent *third sentence for your novel.

what I wrote above would be if the novel is POV of an Alex Dularge or Norman Bates character

Incoherent, hateful, rambling. Bloated nonsense. Incomprehensible word sausagery. Pompous drivel. Crapola.

compare to such classics

Quote

“All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”

—Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Quote

“I can feel the heat closing in, feel them out there making their moves, setting up their devil doll stool pigeons, crooning over my spoon and dropper I throw away at Washington Square Station.”

—William S. Burroughs, Naked Lunch

Quote

“It was a *****, sultry summer, the summer they electrocuted the Rosenbergs, and I didn’t know what I was doing in New York.”

—Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

Quote

“A screaming comes across the sky.”

—Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow

Quote

“Your father picks you up from prison in a stolen Dodge Neon, with an 8-ball of coke in the glove compartment and a hooker named Mandy in the back seat.”

—Dennis Lehane, “Until Gwen”

I think its closest to Sylvia Plath of these examples.

Funnily enough, the criticisms I lifted and applied to Casimir were from critics of Gravity's Rainbow.

Also, I use the opening line Anna Karenina to describe any number of FUBAR engineering situations.  I think it is profound.

That's a good one.  I think it needs to be added to the novel.

I like the direction the GDT are going. With the Tigers possibly stinking up the AL, we could easily be at each others throats. Instead we have turned it into a joke and are just being silly. I like it. 😁

Gardy, the grizzled old manager, walked onto the patio carrying his morning coffee.  The warm sun felt good on his bare torso.
