Great Moments in Championship CelebrationsThis has nothing to do with baseball at all, but this story sent to me by MooseinOhio is so cool that I gotta post it somewhere.*
After the Celtics won the 1986 championship, [Bill] Walton sat alone in Bird’s kitchen drinking Wild Turkey until after the sun came up.
Drinking Wild Turkey in a kitchen until dawn > spraying champagne all over sweaty guys in a locker room. Though, yeah, I suppose those things aren't mutually exclusive activities after cutting down the nets.
*As an FYI, after the switchover to NBC, I'm probably going to revive my old dead personal blog for stuff that I can't really post over there, non-baseball stuff, and what have you. As of now there's only some old remembrances and a road trip diary. It might serve as a nice hangout going forward, though.

I like the idea of a blog where Shysterites can hide from the rabble.
Otherwise I’ll have nowhere to go for a daily dose of popular culture and other ramblings.

Sounds great, and thanks for the link to your old stuff. I hadn’t read anything except Shyster before.

Thanks for this quote. I recently decided to put some of my own thoughts in a blog. After I posted them, I thought “why did I do this?” People most likely won’t stumble across it and I’m not going to try to promote my stuff somewhere on the interwebs (although you might call this exactly that). But really, there is something satisfying in taking your internal thoughts and transferring them to something readable, or on my case, “visible” is probably the more appropriate word.

See, proving “visible” as opposed to “readable”

Thank you, Mr. Shyster. I’ve actually read your old dead personal blog in the past and enjoyed it almost as much as Shysterball.
