Cory Lidle Flies Into Building - Immediately Canonized

On Wednesday, I briefly had a blog up on the rather odd end of Cory Lidle's planetary existence, but brought it down because I thought it might have read a bit harsh. I've toned down my comments a bit after reading and reflection. My brother's blog post covers most of how I feel and he and I have talked about it a good bit. I owe him for the opportunity to vent! I'll tell you that when I heard it was Lidle, I had 3 basic instincts: A. I hope no one else go hurt. B. So he's no good at flying a plane either. C. Well that makes the trade look a LITTLE better. Harsh, I know, but the guy has become something in death that the never was in life. Here's what he was in life: A. A #5 starting pitcher on most staffs B. A guy who played for 8 teams in 9 years. C. A guy who routinely blasted teammates then relied on buddies in the media to patch it up. D. A scab. Yeah I feel very bad for his 6 year old son and his wife and family. Losing a dad and a husband is a terrible thing, especially so unexpectedly. What bothers me about all this though is that because of his minor celebrity status, the guy has been given a pass on all of his misdeeds and faults. Have a great weekend, C

Hey, Cory Lidle bashed the Phils on his way outta town, so having unfond memories of him is only natural.

I don't think anyone is over-embellishing his on-field accomplishments, it's just a state of shock about a life tragically cut short. At every funeral you've been to, don't people usually limit comments to positive ones? Same goes for famous people. You don't hear "It's a shame Bill died, but he was shit for an accountant."

Ugh, that comment about the trade, that's low, buddy. A man died.

Yeah but we don't go to the funerals of people we dislikes. Thus it's pretty unusual to get funeral bashers.

We're all invited to the media funeral for Cory Lidel. Thus, there will be some bashing.

I guess Cory Lidle CAN hit the broad side of a building.

Chris said...

Yeah - I am not so sure. maybe the instructor was flying.

So, we have a plan with 4 people on it, and I was wondering how much it would cost to upgrade to an iPhone 3G S for just one phone. Is there any way that just that phone could have the data plan?

A young choice you must make is when you would like to accessibility stock trading. In order to become a inactive investor leaving the control for an industry professional, common cash are perfect choices that provide automatic portfolio diversficiation. Should you be a greater portion of a do-it-yourselfer, then deciding on and buying and selling your very own stocks and shares can be done also. Splitting your expense in between equally is actually a choice that some do too. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Microecw2347[/url]
