FIRE JOE MORGAN: Mike Seate Is My New Favorite Writer


Where Bad Sports Journalism Came To Die

FJM has gone dark for the foreseeable future. Sorry folks. We may post once in a while, but it's pretty much over. You can still e-mail dak, Ken Tremendous, Junior, Matthew Murbles, or Coach.

Mike Seate Is My New Favorite Writer

I say that because of an email from Kevin, directing us to this photo:

found on this blog, accompanied by a heartwarming story about Mr. Seate's reaction to receiving an award. [Edit: it also includes the first ever recorded use of the term "clenching the pennant. Remember where you were.]

Mike Seate is my new favorite sportswriter.

Did any of you read the section of that blog post wherein Big Mike Seate says:

many of the men in the audience are dressed like they're on their way to a high school prom and slapping each other on the back like the New York Yankees after clenching the pennant...


I missed the malaprop entirely. But Tyler didn't:

A) Never mind the sound a mouse erection makes - I have NO desire to know what the New York Yankees look like "slapping each other on the back...after clenching the pennant

B) I submit that "clenching the pennant" needs to be a new tag.

Also - I'm having that photo of Big Mike enlarged and mounted. And possibly clenched.

Tyler, in honor of your excellent eye, and your slavish devotion to all things Mike Seate, I am hereby establishing the "clenching the pennant" tag.

Well done.

I am as always sir your most humble and devoted servant etc.
