  • Our pal 'Duk grabs one of the most intriguing guest bloggers around to do a recurring guest post. Detroit Tigers centerfielder Curtis Granderson will be writing The Grandstand on a semi-regular basis. Let's hope he gives a shoutout to The Big Tilde blog. Big League Stew.

  • Hey, remember the 1991 World Series? Wezen-ball does, and tracks down the pre-season predictions for the Braves and Twins, both coming off last-place finishes. Keep your hopes high, Orioles fans! Not you, Nationals fans. Wezen-ball.

  • Remember when Chipper Jones was drafted #1 overall in 1990? GM-Carson does. Check out the pitchers drafted #1 a year before and a year after ol' Chip. Whoops! More Hardball.

  • Johan Santana has a personalized and unique handshake for each member of the Mets squadron. He's afraid of furries so he has no special handshake for Mr. Met. Mets Blog.

  • Jerkwheat is a rational fan. The Big Tilde.

  • Gary Dexter explains how the book All Quiet on the Western Front got its title. Did you know that Erich Remarque was sharing a flat with Leni Riefenstahl when he wrote the novel? That's like Johan Santana and Mr. Met sharing a loft apartment in Queens. How Books Got Their Titles.

You want to be featured in the Linkpunch? Write well, or put together a nifty video, or capture a funny picture. Otherwise, hit the bricks.

"Hey, remember the 1991 World Series?"
Hell yes I do. Suck it Matt

That was mean. I am sorry.

What are these "hopes" you speak of

Do you think Erich finger-banged Leni? I bet they totally did it. I'm, like, totally telling everyone at Weimar High (Go Fightin' Panzers!) they did it.

HUH ISNT THAT JUST THE MOST INTERESTING STUDY SINCE SLICED BREAD I COULD HAVE TOLD YOU THAT YOUR DUDE CHIP WOULD BE NUMBERO UNO OVER THAT SPAN I MEAN THE-ROD IS IN THERE AND HE IS PRETTY GOOD BUT I DONT THINK HES EVER HIT 400 OR WON A WORLD SERIES OR HUNTED THE DEALIEST GAME IN THE ANTARTIC YOU CAN PUT CHECKMARKS IN CHIP'S' COLUMNS THERE OH AND I AM ALL NATURAL LIKE FRENCHY LIKES TO SAY

I remember it quite well too, BC.
FUCK HRBEK

If Curtis ever made reference to The Big Tilde (in either nickname or blog form) I would fucking scream like a little girl and jizz in my goddamn pants.
