Making the LLM Blush

Among my e-mail was a message from a Reds staffer with this beautiful sentence:

Got down here in Sarasota a couple days ago. Everyone looks great. Griffey is in very good shape. Just worked with Bubba - nice guy. Told Javy he's the Latin Love Machine on the web - he was quite embarrassed.

And to think just a year and a half later, our favorite little catcher would discover what we so affectionately call him.

2007 is the year, baby.

I wonder though: if he was embarrassed by being called “the Latin Love Machine,” how would he respond to seeing the bouncing Javy head?

    I’m guessing you got full credit for the nickname too… :rolleyes:

    It’s one of the benefits I get for maintaining a blog. 😀

    Actually, it didn’t sound like anyone really got credit, which is good I think. Calling him LLM is in the collective conciousness now.

    I will give you credit for sticking around for almost 2 years now. That’s truly impressive. I barely made it 1 year before crapping out. It’s probably a good thing too, better to burn out than fade away.

    Seriously though, it is kind of amazing how a throwaway comment describing your first Human League entry morphed into the coolest nickname on the Reds. This internet is a weird beast. 😉
