You know sometimes, to get perspective, I like to think about a spaceman on a star incredibly far away. And, our problems don't matter to him, because we're just a distant point of light. But he feels sorry for me, because he has an incredibly powerful microscope, and he can see my face. I'm okay.

My brother-in-law wrote this article! It comes up every few years. He also worked on Seinfeld, Saturday Night Live, and Law and Order: Criminal Intent.

This is from an old [The Village Voice article.](https://i.imgur.com/f0bKQQV.png) The Village Voice doesn't actually interview baseball players in real life though. Others included: Wally Backman described dinosaurs as "strange and wondrous beasts that stalked the world of ancient Rome." Keith Hernandez reminisced about drawings he made of dinosaurs during games. Dwight Gooden revealed that he discovered a fossil of the late Cretaceous period outside the dugout.

We call one of my co-workers the t-rex. But it's not as cool a nickname as you might think. It's cuz he drives around the shop all day on a cart and he sits super close to the steering wheel and the way his arms are tucked in makes him look like a t-rex. He's an idiot. Fuck you, t-rex. I do not believe in you.

This reminds me of one of my favorite magic card flavor texts from when I was a kid. *"Unicorns don't care if you believe in them any more than you care if they believe in you." -Regal Unicorn* [Link for the curious](http://gatherer.wizards.com/Handlers/Image.ashx?multiverseid=14473&type=card)

And then Bill Buckner made the most inexplicable error in baseball history and Mookie scored to beat the Red Sox in the World Series.

"The Bible never says anything about dinosaurs. You can't say there were dinosaurs when you never saw them. Someone actually saw Adam and Eve. No one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus rex." >What about dinosaur bones? >"Made by man," he says.

I’ve used this mock quote to help motivate some 9-10 year kids I coach in hockey. A few of them were down on themselves because they had not scored in awhile. They all looked at me and were confused by what I was trying to tell them. I explained that they need not worry about it. Just keep playing your best and not to think about the slump that they were in. Goals and points will come if you focus on practicing and playing with effort. I will confess though that when I used it, I did not know it was a fake quote.

I always remember reading a little anecdote in Reader's Digest probably 30 years ago about how Mookie and his wife got married on a baseball field because, as he put it, "She wanted a big diamond."

Ambition is like a frog sitting on a Venus Flytrap. The flytrap can bite and bite, but it won’t bother the frog because it only has little tiny plant teeth. But some other stuff could happen and it could be like ambition.

My old drug dealer was named "Mookie". Obviously not real birth name but, for what it's worth, stand up guy lol Edit: I say 'obviously not real birth name' as I comment on an article about an obvious real birth name of Mookie. :( Feels bad man.

Baseball is the best sport if you are of a certain mind. Back in the 1950's there was a pitcher named Billy Loes who would stop pitching whenever an airplane would fly over the stadium. As it went by, he'd watch it, and presumably the people in the stadium would watch it with him. When it was gone, he'd start pitching again. He also muffed a ground ball and claimed to have lost it in the sun, and may have been telling the truth.
