I'm pretty relaxed, bro, just making an observation. If I took my life very seriously I would do something with it instead of commenting about trolls on the internet.

I'm not really talking about co-ed beer-league softball, really. Certainly has nothing to do with being manly. If you want to take a walk then I think it's lame and borderline angleshooting, but whatever. The thing that struck me was how proud of yourself you were, and clearly still are based on the way you told the story. Congrats, you knew the basic rules of the game and nitted your way to victory! Again, I'm not criticizing because it's unmanly or non-alpha-male but the extent to which you are patting yourself on the back.

Then there's the troll's freeroll. You took the game seriously enough to draw a walk without swinging the bat in co-ed beer-league softball yet your enjoyment was in mocking people who took the game too seriously. I'm fine with trolling, and certainly talking **** in something like intramural softball, but taking the who-so-serious line when you clearly care just as much, if not more, is just stupid and annoying. Why do you think epi was so unpopular?



Interesting that you lead with a bragging tone and then when you got called out you switched to this.

Lol at anyone being offended by your actions.

People laugh at that story because they are laughing at you.

saying people were offended was sarcasm making fun of how seriously they are taking it, obviously.

Jumping up and down to first yelling "We win! We win! We win!" isn't taking it seriously? It's like you wanted everyone to know how smart you were by knowing some obscure co-ed softball rule that is in no way obscure by shouting out "we win!" before anyone else realized. How awesome and smart and competetive of you!

Well he told the story with an air of pride, which makes him a douche. Since it was a lame story and it basically just made him look bad. Now he's telling the haterz they are too serious. lol ok.

Being drunk and fat doesn't excuse anything. Do you think bystanders were like "Oh look at the douche, he thinks it's the world series." "No - it's OK, he's drunk and really fat!" "Oh, yeah, you're right nevermind. He's not an obnoxious douche. If he lost 80 pounds and got sober I bet there's no way he'd act the same!" "Exactly, see, you get it." And people aren't laughing at the story they are cringing for you on the inside so as not to hurt your fat feelings. And probably really glad they weren't present at the time.

This. lol Karak as usual.

Also, I want to add I do not have a problem with you taking a walk. Especially if you aren't very good and you don't expect the girl behind you to knock in the winning run but the part that I think makes you a douche is jumping up and down shouting "We win!" I mean that's straight up assburger behavior right there.

By far the most lol thing about karak is him digging himself into a deeper hole over the last couple of pages. I suppose we could write that off as his modding-style.

I'm not sure what's scary about it. I thought it was particularly illustrative story, started writing my post and a bad college essay spilled out. You might notice that many of my posts go on and on, I often have a bad writing style.

Quote:
Apparently, however, the walkoff double walk is something you have found great offense to. I apologize for that.
As evidence for my bad writing, I was trying to make it clear that the walkoff double was not the slightest bit offensive to me. It's mildly douchey and somewhat an angleshoot, but whatever.

Certainly can't deny that being an awful post. If only Sethy had made his "that guy" post before I wrote that monstrosity...

I had a lot of free time that week, and was curious if I could apply the same thing to dealing with moderation, rather than using the infraction/callout method, as well as dealing with personal trolling or whatever.
Others can correct me if I'm wrong, but neither of these describe me at all. But go ahead and keep on with the haters-gonna-hate stuff and ignore that they might have a reason to. I obviously chose one poster at random to hate on exclusively as part of a social experiment. Sucks that it happened to be you.

thankfully i dont find my self worth in the actions i took 5 years ago when playing co-ed drunk rec softball.

it was supposed to be for your entertainment. yes i realize i looked really dumb doing it, but i have enough self-confidence that my ego can handle a little self-deprecating humor! if you cant laugh at yourself, you cant enjoy life. it doesnt make me a pathetic person . Other things might, but certainly not this!

if i posted that i did coke off a hooker's ass while hitting a home run, would that be better!
If you'd told the story in this way, it wouldn't have been a big deal but I'm sure it's on us haters that we read it as "here's this awesome and hilarious thing I did" when you meant it as "here's this dumb but funny thing I did".

1,000 'Bleacher Report' Writers Descend On Super Bowl Media Day

INDIANAPOLIS—Sports journalists and television crews were pushed aside during Super Bowl Media Day on Tuesday as more than 1,000 writers for the website BleacherReport.com entered Lucas Oil Stadium to acquire material for their trademark style of reportage. "I asked Tom Bardy [sic] where he thought he should be on my list of the top 10 guys to ever play in the Super Bowl, and he said it didn't sound like I had anyone who played before 2005," said Bleacher Report writer Darron Nasty, 16, whose credentials identified him as "Writer, Top 10 Carolina and Miami Hurricanes Writer, June 2011." "I think we got a lot of good answers, though, and our Super Bowl analysis lists are going to give a lot of insight to the fans and coaching staffs." Also at Media Day for the first time was the sports and culture web magazine Grantland, which sent Vin Scully to narrate the proceedings so that editors could sit at home listening to him on the radio while drinking cognac.

The actual act isn't any more of a ***** move than say, being a grown ass man and regularly drinking vodka cranberries. What is a ***** move, is that as soon as people criticized you, you got defensive and tried to re frame the story as "look at this stupid thing I did while drunk in college" when it's really "one time my cousin was going to beat me in monopoly so i cheated".
