He wasn't even doing it right

So I caught Sportsnet Central this morning and Casey Blake released a statement! :P And basically said what I said about not knowing the meaning of Brian Wilson's gesture and ended with "whatever" haha. Then they showed a clip of him doing it and... he didn't even do it right! He crossed his arms and pointed with both index fingers. Isn't that already an indication he doesn't know what the fuck he's doing?

One of my pet peeves is people who claim to be very devout Christians and apparently what this means is they just get offended all the time or think that people of other religions are going to hell and that they're better than them. I went to a Catholic school for 16 years and have a lot of very religious friends and how they express it is in how they live their lives. The fact that I'm a free thinker has never gotten in the way of our friendship. We had Muslims and Hindus in my school too and it was so not an issue that it wasn't even considered as something accepted/tolerated because it just WAS and there's no need to put the name of acceptance or tolerance on something that IS. Do you accept/tolerate that other people are human?

I can't believe the Giants have a winning record. And that less than half the team is geriatric. And that Pablo Sandoval can't seem to run 90 feet without hurting himself.

I am so excited there's going to be 3 Game 7s!!! This has been the best round 2 I've followed in a long time, but more on an... almost academic level because I'm not rooting strongly for any one team which makes all of this much less stressful, but at the same time I'm not as emotionally invested so I'm not as affected by the games.

I'm rooting strongly AGAINST teams, which makes it sort of stressful, but otherwise I agree. :) It's weird though; before this round started, I was sure Vancouver/Chicago would go 7, and they're the only ones who didn't.

I don't even have anyone to root against! I'm hoping there won't be any more blowouts tonight. :P

I share your pet peeve (if that's okay with you; if not we can just call it a common opinion, ha ha). It's actually pretty hard for me to consider someone a "bad person" and I think my roommate (who's one of the kind of Christians you mentioned) has a hard time getting her mind around it.

Of course her biggest lecture topic lately was that I need to lose weight. I told her this morning that my being a fat person is none of her business and while I realize she doesn't like fat people, she's just going to have to get over it. I'm happy and mostly healthy and I don't see fit to have to buy new clothes I can't afford.

My pet peeve is other people sharing my pet peeve!!!

Haha, j/k. Yeah, in general the need to control other people's lives and change them to fit your own worldview is just a bad thing.

My pet peeve is people kidding with me!!!!! (ha.)

She's very much in need of control over other people. Her son lives, like, three miles away and doesn't talk to her that often. I wonder why.

people who claim to be very devout Christians and apparently what this means is they just get offended all the time or think that people of other religions are going to hell and that they're better than them.

so much yes.

Haha, you're surrounded by them. :P

I actually dated one of those Christians back in the day. :/ Not surprisingly, it didn't work out. He even had problems with my upbringing because it wasn't the same denomination as his (I grew up Catholic, he was Presbyterian.) Bah.

I think my biggest beef with the whole Casey Blake thing was that he did it in the dugout. I mean, if you're gonna mock someone, do it to their face. What he did just seemed like some gutless half-assed thing. And yeah, he didn't even do it right.

I'm not sure where that attitude comes from. Perhaps it's a twisted interpretation of evangelization. "I'm supposed to try to get people to believe what I do, so... that must mean I'm right and they're wrong and I can feel smug about it!"

Really? I think any other way he could have done it would have been worse.
