What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
THE RANGERS WIN!!!!I love to say it: the Rangers will undoubtedly build on this momentum, finish the season a surprising 116-46 (that's effin right b's) and go an unprecedented 1458-0 for the rest of the decade, and win 10 titles. Feliz will shatter Orel's record with 6600 straight scoreless innings and 220 consecutive saves (all of the 3 inning variety of course, b/c nobody will come w/in 3 runs of the Rangers, obviously) without blowing an opportunity. All of this, despite Kinsler never again getting on base, yet anchoring the lineup from the leadoff spot. IT'S INEVITABLE!
Nice one Johnnyranger. We are flying high tonight!
Hello Win Column!
The Rangers will win it all. THE ANGELS SUCK! The Rangers will inevitably win the division and the Series.
What the hell Skeletor, what the hell.
I like the way Snrub thinks. But I also think you're crazy.
You freaking overreactionary people. It's just one win, run differential, stats, blah, blah, blah. Go Rangers!
You are an idiot.
Sorry for the cyber bullying but did you really think johnnyranger was serious?
The point of his post was to make fun of your post. Right?? Sarcasm anyone?
You're an idiot. You make fun of me for not getting sarcasm when you can't tell that I'm being sarcastic. I guess I should have put a wink or something after the post. You owe me an apology
And last time I checked I graduated Summa Cum Laude with 2 Masters Degrees and Summa Cum Laude in undergrad. Definitely not an idiot.
Just as johnny ranger was reversing my post in order to give me a good ribbing, I was acknowledging the ribbing by utilizing the rebuttals of my earlier post in response to johnnyranger. How did you not get that?
You are taking this to a new level of anger. I am sorry that I can't go there with you sir. This is all just not that serious for me.
Congratulations on all of your summa cums and what not.
Not angry. Just stating facts. Joe you are reading stuff into comments that are not there. You're the one that needs to calm down. You criticize me for not picking up on sarcasm when you in fact did not pick up on my sarcasm. That is ironic and quite humorous because you're reading stuff into my posts that are not there. Now you're doing it again. Quit assuming Joe. Take a step back, and you'll see the humor in the situation instead of anger. "New level of anger"? You, good sir, are the one being quite ridiculous.
And thank you for the congratulations. I'm proud of my degrees and summa cum laudes. . . . fyi, I know you're not serious about your congratulations. I'm playfully ribbing you and insincerely offering gratitude . Do you get that? Are you catching it or are you wrongfully assuming something else again?
and Skeletor, arent your degrees in like theology or religious studies?..... i'd say that might give you the authority and guidance for the rest of us regarding Angels correct?.....especially in how bad they SUCK!!
C'mon, guys. This blather is unreadable. Just call each other.
Too much whining/arguing here anymore, over the dumbest of things like grammar, opinions, on and on. Overall a lack of respect for one another. Just because someone does not think or feel exactly as you do, does not make that person wrong or an idiot. Some of the sarcasm is funny, and most people with common sense get it. But all the arguing... GEEZ. This is just sports, and we all are Rangers fans right? So what if someone does not write like Joey, afterall Joey has a unique style that is his own, not everyone can duplicate that. In the earlier days, I swear he taught me a new word everyday. People griped then, that he was too hard to read, I enjoyed it, and enjoy most articles now even with the tone downed version. Not everyone is Joey or of his stylings, or intelligence level, so ease up on your fellow Ranger fans. Some of you act as if you are auditioning to be Joey's next partner. I miss the old days of BBTiA and some of the peeps that use to post here with an actual intelligent view, yes they still exist, but it was NOT like this, people had respect, people said not here pal, we are not LSB. I miss when game chats were game chats, and not a contest of who can spew the most shock value. Just my two cents.
What are your degrees in, and at what institutions?
If they're in particle physics at MIT, sure.
If they're on intelligent design theory at Bob Jones University, maybe not.
Yes because the only valid degree is particle physics, and the only valid university is MIT. Sorry Joey but your Master's degree your working on is worthless. It's not from MIT
You just confirmed the Biblical: All wisdom is folly.
And no one with academic integrity believes in intelligent design.
You have no idea what you're talking about jd121. Nno where does Proverbs say all wisdom is folly. In fact, wisdom is the reverse or folly in Proverbs. If you're referring to the end of Ecclesiastes, you're completely missing the irony in this quote since it is written by a scribe whose job is to teach wisdom, in Wisdom literature. Misquoting your source is a great way to win an argument.
Then again, this whole argument started because certain posters were not astute enough to get irony so why should I be surprised that the theme continues
omg i cant believe this arguement is ongoing;
Joe, youre being sensitive. He didnt call you club foot or short leg or anything mean or F***ed up like that. He was joking around about something you werent even involved in. In the words of the big lebowskie "youre out of your element" take it easy. Now go write a super long post about the trade deadline and how it will effect the rest of the season.
Skeletor, you did kinda pull the education card a little to soon, comes off as a litte douchey. youre supposed to keep that one in your back pocket and only use it when needed. For all you know Joe has the exact same credentials as you, but you didnt ask. One with such credentials as yourself and the degrees that you do have....youre better than that. MNF time. COME ON MAN!
alright end of discussion.... so now to what matters. Who the heck are the rangers gonna bring in here by the deadline?????!!!!!
I was using hyperbolic examples to illustrate my point. My point is that there is a spectrum of degrees that can be used as trump cards to validate a person's claim to intelligence. At no point did I say any degree was "invalid", just that its less correlated with intelligence.
However, Bob Jones University is required by its accreditation council to have the official stance of affirming "the divine work of non-evolutionary creation including persons in God's image". I believe one could reasonably characterize a degree in biological science from that institution as "suspect".
I find it interesting that you neglect to answer the question, Skeletor. Alright, I'll go first. I'm in my final year of Government and Politics and Economics at the University of Maryland. Yourself?
