Thread: Introducing another baseball nerd

    Default Introducing another baseball nerd

    How did you find CS?

    Searching for information about Mormons in Baseball and other sports

    How did you choose your moniker?

    I wanted to promote my site: Mormon Baseball (mormonbaseball.com)

    What do you do (other than read CS)?

    Publish books.

    How many time zones have you lived in?

    3

    What are your sports loyalties?

    New York Yankees
    New York Redbulls
    Real Salt Lake
    FCPorto
    Flamengo (Rio de Janeiro)
    and I follow Mormons in various sports


    Are you looking forward to wuap's welcome question and what do you think it will be?

    I dunno. I may just ignore it.


    What's your standing in the church? (this was originally meant as a joke but it stuck)

    I'm an active, Liahona Mormon. Currently teaching seminary.

    Why are you so creepy? How long have you been lurking?

    Ask my wife. I've really only lurked occasionally -- perhaps an hour or so total.

    Do you expect anyone to respond to this thread?

    no.

    Voros McCracken used to be in my internet baseball league. Welcome, nerd.

    Welcome baseball nerd. A quick suggestion: that would make an excellent board name.

    Quick but important question: who is your 2012 AL MVP?

    Cabrera seemed like the right pick to me, esp. given how well the Tigers did.

    Or maybe you can brag about watching Trout hit a 2 run homer in the same thread where you argue that RBIs are a worthless stat.

    You will probably be really jealous of me because I know Eric Sogard's wife and in-laws personally. I also have a bat signed by Dale Murphy. Basically all the Mormons I know.

    Welcome.

    Welcome.
    Summer after my mission my YA ward went to Mormon Night at Dodger Stadium. Cory Snyder was on the team at the time and he addressed the crowd briefly. I never met him but we did sit near some people that seemed to know him.

    My mission president wasn't Dale Murphy, but I served in the Boston mission.

    He's a great guy. He was in my ward and used to let my little brother come over and hit in the batting cage he had in his backyard.

    I served with his little brother, who was a heck of a nice guy.

    Welcome, MormonBaseball. I am pleased you chose the pellegrino-approved template to introduce yourself. Expect a doozy from wuap.

    I played Little league with this Giants Pitcher.

    Welcome.
    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    I believe religion has much inherent good and has born many good fruits.

    Is that your brother's wife or your wife's sister?

    I went to highschool, with Wally Backman. I've sworn to keep his secret just that.
