Tim Marchman writes a hell of a fucking good paragraph today:

This leaves the second point, which would be that New York is world capital of politics, finance, the arts and baseball while Seattle is a miserable shithole full of sad, small people living unimportant lives, so that what happens in one place counts for more than what happens in the other. I don’t know if this is a position you can really argue someone out of. The best you can do is encourage them to really own it. (Incidentally, people who argue this point, no matter how many euphemisms they use, always sound to me like Mark E. Smith in ‘The Classical’: ‘HEY THERE FUCKFACE!! HEY THERE FUCKFACE!! There are twelve people in the world! The rest are paste!’)

Now just reading that you don’t have the foggiest idea what he’s talking about, but isn’t it fun to read anyway?

If you care, he’s talking about why Carsten Charles Sabathia is better than Felix Abraham Hernandez.

    I’m not a baseball fan, but you’re right, it was a fun read and a great paragraph!
