Hold that thought, Thom


From columnist Thom Loverro in today's Washington Times:


An examination of this team before the season would have left reasonable people to believe, in such a competitive division, that this was a 75-win team -- an eight-game improvement over the previous season in Montreal. That would have been a noteworthy accomplishment.
To have gotten off to such an exciting start was a gift, and if they manage to stay in competition for the division title or a wild card spot, then it will be Christmas.


Sure, Thom. That sort of describes it, but you need to refine the analogy:

---> You're happy because it's Christmas and you've been given a nice gift.

---> And, for a little while, it functioned exceedingly well and was an enjoyable gift. And there was all kinds of advertising behind it, and guys like Thom Loverro were swearing it was really something special.

---> But then you realized that the gift was missing some bells and whistles, and one of the parts was plainly defective, and another of the parts was old and frayed. Come to think of it, the gift lacked a certain power or potence, and you start to suspect that its designer was an idiot and its preparation was mismanaged.

So, the gift is nice and thoughtful and it engenders satisfaction, but just the same, you're hoping for a better one next Christmas.

That's about how it is, Thom.
