Occasionally, while dusting off servers and optimizing routers here at SoSG Worldwide Headquarters, I'll log on to the Bat-computer and take a look at where some of our traffic is coming from. Yesterday I noticed some hits from a site called Manny Ramirez Facts. I had never heard of them, and as far as I know they've never contacted us.
The flavor of MRF can be summed up in this sentence from the site:
Our ability to see Manny is therefore not due to reflected light, but rather is a projection of his innate luminosity.
Get the idea? Although MRF is only in its second month of operation, they have plenty of Manny-isms to offer. For example, here's their very first post:
And...that's it. But sometimes the writers get a little more expansive:
We should be careful when discussing the period of 1993 - 1995 in Manny Ramirez's life.
His role in producing Lush's hit single "Ladykiller" is well known.
His victory over Vladimir Putin in an arm wrestling contest is not.
To this day, both Miki Berenyi and Anatoly Sobchak have offers out on Manny's life.
And to think our mission statement includes the phrase "random rantings and ravings."
One more sample. The site has a musical/scientific bent:
Kanye West and Manny Ramirez met only once...
but the experience so shook the former that he crafted his greatest in a galaxy of hit songs, "RoboCop" off his 2008 album, 808s & Heartbreak.
The chorus, so reminiscent of the romantic maelstrom that lies at the heart of the greatest Euro-Disco hits, was actually based on a computerised breakdown of Manny's swing, converted into wave-form.
Fine work, gentlemen.
