You Call It "Focused." We Call It "Snoring."

"...the 2010 WHAT???" Baseball season? Winter Olympics? Head of the Charles Regatta? Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes Entry Form? American Idol winner?

Former Dodger and intestinal-fortitude-challenged individual Chan Ho Park may be on the cover of the latest issue of KoreAm magazine. But shhhhhhhh! Don't wake him! As Park dreams of a new team to sign him for this season, he says he's still reminiscing about last year's postseason ailments:

Though Park was ill during the Series—infected with swine flu, no less—he was able to maintain his focus while pitching on baseball’s grandest stage. His opponents: the greatest postseason performers in the sport’s history, the New York Yankees.

“I had the swine flu during the World Series, [but] it didn’t matter,” Park recalls. “Sometimes, when you’re not feeling good, mentally you get stronger and you’re able to focus.”

Park used that focus to bounce back during Games 4 to 6, adding to his bulldog mentality and displaying the L-O-V-E he’s generated from his fans and supporters.

Somebody get the Sharpie before he wakes up! I want to make sure he's aware of the L-O-V-E.

He's waiting for the 2010 Los Angeles Superior Court decision in Park vs. Kreuter, obviously.

Based on the other headlines in that screen shot, it looks like they have an editor with a fetish for truncation. Or maybe a very Zen outlook:

Modern Architecture -
Who Among Us Will
Modern Design: NYC's
Ji Lee: The Transformative

What is this witchcraft that has spelled SoSG? BEGONE, DEMONS OF HELL! I COMMAND YOU IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, TIM TEBOW!

But seriously, what's up with the links at the bottom of the posts?

Orel said...

L is for the way you look at me.

Just testing a new widget, MLASF.

Steve Sax said...

Orel, that's not nice to talk about the shorter posts at the bottom like that...

...oh wait, you said widget. My bad.

Steve Sax said...

@Jason 4:09p: I also like how "Who Among Us Will" has a broken link to its picture. Clearly, the answer is "no one".

Orel said...

The preferred term is "little post."

Jason said...

I thought the preferred term was column length challenged. I have been inadvertently offensive for all these years.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They prefer "little person planet."


No wait, that's Pluto.

Is Pluto still a planet? I don't even know any more.
