World Series Prompts More Baseball Letters

It seems, with the baseball playoffs, now concluded, and the World Series starting up tonight, a number of visitors have visited The Garlic, to bone-up on the Special Essay we published this past Spring, and read “Could You Please Tell Me, What Is This Thing Called Baseball?”.

As you can see (with links below), we’ve gotten quite a few letters on the piece, a new batch has flowed in this week and we’ll share a few with you ... Enjoy!

Maf54: Dear Garlic
Maf54: I just recently had the time, and opportunity to read your baseball piece ...
Maf54: You like baseball, don’t you?
Maf54: Do you like those cute batboys? ...
Maf54: Or Is it the tight uniforms? I like the tight uniforms.
Maf54: And those big bats ...
Maf54: Do you have a big bat?
Maf54: How old are you?...
Maf54: Maybe, we can get together, with both of us wearing tight baseball uniforms and we can both bring our big bats ...
Maf54: Would you like to do that?



Just read your Could You Please Tell Me, What Is This Thing Called Baseball? ... Impressive ... You must have done a lot of research for it.

Can you tell me, in your research, did you discover if any of the baseball players were married to each other? If so, get in touch with me. We’d like to document that information for a project we’re working on.

Dear The Garlic

Great baseball piece ... Sure took the sting out of watching the FBI raid my daughter’s house...

Rep. Curt Weldon (R-PA)

Dear Garlic

First off, sorry for this note, in the margins of the New York Times... Just an old habit of mine.

Really enjoyed Could You Please Tell Me, What Is This Thing Called Baseball? ...

My aide, David Addington read it also and believes we can cite the Infield Fly Rule as our position to the courts for keeping our Visitor Logs private.

Thanks for the tip

Vice President, United States of America


Just read your baseball piece.

Got an idea for you, that will help you get boatloads of free publicity for it.

Just plug in pictures of Osama bin Laden, and some other terrorists and make up some vague threat about how they’re going to blow-up baseball or something and blame the Democrats. Then all the news and cable news outlets will do stories on you and the baseball piece.

Let me know if you need any help with it

Ken Mehlman
Chairman, Republican National Committee

Dear The Garlic

This letter is to inform you that your writing, Could You Please Tell Me, What Is This Thing Called Baseball?, will be included in an amendment that we submit to the court, as part of the $5.5-Million settlement matter. We need to clarify to the courts, and add that I didn’t beat any baseball players either.

Rep. Don Sherwood (R-PA)

Dear Garlic

That is a great baseball piece you have there. I like it so much, I think I will mail out another letter, to let all the Hispanics know about it (You know how much they love baseball).

Tan D. Nguyen (R-CA)
Candidate For Congress

These are hysterical ... Especially the Weldon and Sherwood quips ... You should do a book of these things ...
