This is one of those awesome-yet-incredibly-sad stories.

Good on him.
 
2013-02-19 02:37:17 PM  
Good to see when sports stars who make a ton of money put it to use, and get personally involved.  Clayton Kershaw spends the offseasons with his wife in Zambia, and of course Roberto Clemente died while delivering relief supplies to Nicaragua.  I wouldn't be at all surprised if Dickey wins the Clemente award this year.

It's nice to see a Christian acting the part.
 
2013-02-19 02:58:11 PM  
yeah, and the Mets got rid of him.  damn it to hell!

Ordinarily I get a little upset when I see the Hero tag in the sports tab.

This time it is well-deserved.  Good man, R.A., good man.

I don't think that Indian sex slaves should be sold as Asian sex slaves, that's just dishonest.
 
2013-02-19 03:24:05 PM  
Is there a limit on how many can be ordered?  Is there a backlog?

India is in Asia.  Be sure to specify "East Asian"

yeah, asking a lot of questions upfront is a lot better than running around india looking for someone to honor a return policy. just ask RA dickey

They were so cheap that I returned the one I bought with no troubles. The little brown guy with the whipping stick was so polite.  I didn't even ask for my 1400 Rupee back. I was trying to specify what I meant by Asian and I almost didn't succeed until I pulled on the corners of my eyes and said "Ah So" with a slight bow.

Then he knew what I meant and just kept shaking his head. He didn't have any in stock.

The best part was when that crazy "Kali-maaa" heart-stealing guy was chasing R.A. Dickey onto a rope bridge, but then he ingeniously cut the ropes, sending henchmen into the river below and dispatching his foe with an expertly-placed knuckleball while they were both clinging to a sheer rock face. And then R.A. Dickey freed the children of India, who weren't forced to scratch at the walls of a tunnel with pickaxes anymore.

no the best part was when ra dickey got on the phone with the sex slave trafficker and told him about his "particular set of skills" which devolved into a detailed description of the mechanics and efficacy of the knuckleball

Dickey is my favorite player who shares his name with an article of clothing.

I can't think of a single instance when the tag has been used unironically to describe on-the-field exploits.  If it's in the sports tab, I would expect to see it accompany an article about, I dunno, the guy who invented those yellow lines you see on the screen to show where the first down marker is, or the top-rated beer vendor at Miller Park in Milwaukee.  And I would realize it was meant tongue-in-cheek.  This is not always a completely serious website, you know.

Well yes, my reply was sort of the equivalent of a "welcome to Fark" macro, which sometimes gets directed at people who have been around a while (I'm telling you this since you're new and all).

He's a pretty cool guy from the interviews I've heard.


He was also a victim of sexual abuse so the issue is near and dear to him.

Total double standard.
When I tell the officials in Bombay that I'm there to "rescue" teen sex slaves, I get arrested and lose my passport.

It's okay to laugh at racism when you realize my naivete.
I've actually never had a sex slave.

Okay, seriously.  Did you guys really believe that when I said "since you're new and all" -- right after I compared it to a "welcome to Fark" image -- that I was serious about that?  Damn, I just threw in that parenthetical after I had written it out, thinking I would add a touch of irony and... ah, fark it all, man.

Their loss is Toronto's gain...He's showing himself to be a class act on/off the field. He's also brought an excitement to the fans that hasn't been seen in a while. Opening game is already sold out and dozens are expected for game 2.
