Page 132 is on extended haitus

Due to my professional and personal life, I will no longer be updating this blog until further notice. None of the other writers appear to be writing either, so Page 132 is on extended hiatus.

Thank you for reading and corresponding with the writers.

We hope to be back in the future, but I don't know when that will be.

Feel free to contact me at baseball_fan4life AT hotmail if you wish to continue the conversation.

Sebelius was pro-choice AND decreased abortions

I'm quickly coming to love Matthew 25 Network as the place for progressive evangelicals to discuss issues of faith and politics.

Check out their post on Gov. Sebelius' efforts to reduce abortions in Kansas while being pro-choice.

Brilliant stuff.

Totally agree

With OMB Director Peter Orszag - "I just reject the theory that the only thing that drives economic performance is the marginal tax rate on wealthy Americans as the only way of being pro-market is to funnel billions and billions of dollars of subsidies to corporations."

Obama may use 50-vote tactic on energy, healthcare

I hope we hear more Democrats saying this same sort of thing!

Before I go any further, you have to understand something. I live in a time lapse. By that I mean that the "city" in which I dwell is about 10 years behind most other places. Therefore, I find out about stuff much later than most other people. So, if you've already seen or heard what I'm about to share with you, please humor me. Anyway, you should check out cooliris. It's quite, well, cool.


So, I used to actually write somewhat original content...

But, now I'm relegated to bringing you stuff like this.

I'm still trying to figure out what was meant by this. This plan is not helpful to any baby making efforts.

And one of the tech dudes shared this with me today. I was laughing so hard I was crying in my office. Seriously, I was bent over my workstation with my sandwich over over my head and convulsing with laughter.

This is so funny on many layers. First, what are the two dudes in the front of the boat doing? Second, the dude in the back!?! If I didn't know better, I'd think it was my dad! Third, what kind of ride are you going to get behind that boat while on that tube?

Page 132's godfather autographs book

Grant landed me Donald Miller's autograph and on Page 132 too! on TwitPic

My buddy, Grant, helped Donald Miller and his photographer when they were here for the inauguration. I'm plenty pleased.

Will MLB become another WWF?

After 40+ years of creative cooperation between National Football League officials and their Players’ Union, the NFL dominates the American professional sports landscape at a level of popularity that is the envy of all other sports leagues. Throughout the same 40+ years most of what we’ve seen between the Office of MLB and their Players’ Union is contention, distrust, legal wrangling, player strikes, bad leadership, bad management, scapegoating, finger-pointing, and media spin. Is it any wonder that one of the major consequences of this uncooperative history is that the former “national pastime” is well on its way to a level of credibility rivaling that of professional wrestling? MLB officials have been so spineless that the US government has had to threaten intervention to get them to do drug testing to save their own sport. Then, when MLB finally does drug testing there are no uniform and consistent consequences for those who fail. When evidence of drug abuse does surface, what is the reaction of the MLB Players’ Union? To work WITH the league to discipline offenders and clean up the sport? Not hardly. The MLBPA is much more concerned to protect the guilty than it is in supporting the clean players and protecting the health, reputation, and public regard of the sport. How long will MLB survive when its leaders remain more interested in juiced homer run hitters than a clearly legitimate sport? What are today’s young parents supposed to say to their baseball-fan-kids in the future about this era? “Well son, many of the most famous players cheated, they took drugs, the league looked the other way, many of the career statistics for this era are bogus, but the league never wanted to figure out who was clean and who was not and so there is no way to know which players, which teams, and which statistics are honest and which ones are not?” I can’t imagine an answer like that is going to inspire a next generation of fans (other than those who follow professional wrestling.) How heartbreaking for lifelong baseball fans, like me.
