McSweeney’s Internet Tendency: Opening Day Genesis.: “And the Lord God formed, from the dust, a collection of elite players in His own image. The Lord God then breathed the breath of life into His creation. God called this creation the National League.”
Blasphemous? Very possibly, but darn good writing. Thanks to Adam Kalsey for highlighting this poem today, on one of my favorite days of the year. Opening Day.
Of course, no opening day is complete without a little bit of politics, as President Bush declined to throw out the ‘first pitch.’
