Fat Babies

In a similarly self-deprecating yet accurate manner as he described his more famous (and, frankly, far better) song "Nobody Knows Me" as being about cheating and Mexican food, I once saw Lyle Lovett explain that he wrote "Fat Babies" on the occasion of his realization that, in a friendship, it's far more important to hate the same things than it is to like the same things. This is pre-High Fidelity.

In that spirit, I offer the following evidence that Bethlehem Shoals and I can be friends. Read the whole thing. It's too good to excerpt.

A tip of the cap to Ziller at Sactown Royalty for showing his work regarding one of Dr. Berri's suppositions.

Good read, I loled.

Shoals is a really talented writer. I wasn't a big fan of the column you guys beefed over, but when you are writing almost every weekday you are bound to have a few stinkers.

Honestly, I think it just hurt my feelings to be accused of rote Hawks ignorance. I'm fine with disagreement, but implying that I pay as little attention to the Hawks as most non-ATL fans was a low blow!!!!

In any case, let us all join hands over bigger and better things, whatever that means.
