Most of the blogs here are harmless drivel, but occasionally we trip over one that scares us, quite frankly. In reading Down the Left Field Line; Life, Baseball and Eric Byrnes, we felt kind of the same way we did when seeing Fatal Attractionfor the first time. A little sorry for the rabbit and ultimately glad that Glenn Close didn't have our address.
Down the Left Field Line, authored by a woman in her late 40s, is devoted to the Orioles' Eric Byrnes. And when we say devoted, we mean:
"July 30: The Good News: An RBI double his second time up! The Bad News: He got picked off second two minutes later."
"July 31: The team didn't win. Oh well, it's not Byrnesie's fault the White Sox scored 9 runs."
"Aug. 1: Byrnes left 3 on base, 2 in scoring position."
"Aug. 3: With a runner on first and two out, Byrnes looked at a fastball for strike 3. Oh, how I hate called strike 3!"
There's a fine line between blogging and stalking. When your latest entry reminds people of Kathy Bates in Misery, you may have crossed it.
