Where do we go from Here? A Snapshot of the Reds in mid-August


A few things to begin this. This has been a tumultuous season for all of us here. We've lost a lot of folks who have been around since the beginning, and we've been riding Slyde's up-and-down year, and we've been celebrating his graduation to real-personhood. This year has also meant a lot to me, personally, for reasons that I have not yet been able to put into intelligible words. And I won't begin now.

There are plenty of folks here (I think of Brendanukkah, nycredsfan, thevole, and of course Man Mountain) who have far better taste in music than I do. However, on the busride back to my home today, I got to listening to The Silver Jews, and I thought that it fit where we are in the season so far.

I'm sick of the sniping against the other folks who wear red. I'm sick of the wish-we-coulds and oh-if-onlys. And I come not to bury these Reds, but to urge them on. 64-51 with 47 games left? Bring it on. Let's stop with the genitalia-measuring and celebrate what makes this team and our little blog unique with a Planet of the Apes 2 fan vid.

Got an hour or so? Click through my hyperlink anthology of the year (and a bit from last year) so far.

Where's the paper bag that holds the liquor?
Just in case I feel the need to puke.
If we'd known what it'd take to get here,

Would we have chosen to?

Would you have chosen to?



So you wanna build an altar on a summer night,
You wanna smoke the gel off a fentanyl patch.
Aintcha heard the news? Adam and Eve were Jews.
And I always loved you to the max.

I love you to the max

I love you to the max

I love you to the max

I love you to the max

 



If it gets really really bad, if it ever gets really really bad...

Let's not kid ourselves. It gets really really bad.

Punks in the beerlight, burnouts in love.
Punks in the beerlight, Toulouse-Lautrec.
Punks in the beerlight, two burnouts in love.
I always loved you to the max
I love you to the max

I love you to the max

I love you to the max

I love you to the max

I love you to the max

I love you to the max
I love you to the...Max!
