Around the Sphere

Most people around here in the ‘Sphere will relate to this. If you really want to know the heart and soul of an MLBlogger, just read this. We’re all so different but so alike. And some of us like to have a good time, hehe.

A lot of us were worried about our friend Arielle of Red Sox Teen Nation during the onset of Israel-Lebanon hostilities, and just saw that she posted this photo album from the front there.

How does Tiger Woods win four consecutive golf tournaments?

I can’t even think of a baseball equivalent. Walk-off homer in 16 straight games? He even hit a shot onto a roof of a course-side building during the Firestone, mere bogey. As much as I love baseball, I definitely think we have the privilege of watching the greatest athlete in history.

Back to ball. Our friend Cyn at Red Sox Chick offers up some cool video of Josh Papelbon. How low can you go? This guy’s entire body is almost flat against the ground as he delivers submarine. That was amazing to see and who cares if it’s not a network camera operator.

OK, we asked you all to blog about your bobbleheads, and our friend Joe over at Dugout Diary came through in the clutch. There are a couple of posts there about ’em.

Everyone have a great week blogging…


The root of your writing whilst appearing reasonable at first, did not settle well with me after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a while. I still have a problem with your jumps in logic and you might do nicely to fill in all those breaks. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly end up being impressed.

Mark, Mark, Mark.. Tiger Woods the greatest Athlete ever? I think we should just stick with greatest golfer ever. =)


I just tried to leave a comment on Party Like It’s 1982 and instead got the Typepad message that the comment was not posted because typepad thought it was comment spam.

After reading what they defined as spam, I tried reposting after deleting my blog URL. Same Thing. After Deleting my name. Same Thing. And it was a substantial comment so it didn’t fit the “nice site profile they have.

This is the first time I have run into the problem, commenting on another site.

I haven’t gotten any comments for a couple of days, which now makes me wonder if commenters have been banned as alleged spammers from the Byrnesblog as well.

Would it be possible to make this thing optional? It’s like going after a gnat with an elephant gun. I have had no problems with spam since turning off Trackbacks. I don’t want to lose comments because computer erroneously “thinks” they are spam. And I don’t want to take the time to validate individuals.


Life, Baseball & Eric Byrnes
