So you think you know what Dan Shaughnessy is going to write, even before you read his column?Over at Dan Shaughnessy Watch, The Chief likes the idea, adding that contributors should (to achieve the proper frame of mind) "borrow a friend's motorcycle and ride it, helmetless, into a concrete wall. Next, get really, really drunk. Then write your column."
We're going to have a little contest. Next week, the New York Mets come into town, and of course with them will be Pedro Martinez. We know Shaughnessy will write a column about the return of Pedro. You probably have a good idea what it is going to read like.
So write it.
That's right, write Shaughnessy's column about Pedro's return, complete with all the phrases and references he's bound to use. When you're done, email it to me. I'll go through them, and when Dan's column appears, (Right now Pedro is lined up to pitch on Wednesday) whoever's column is the most like Dan's in both style and substance will win a prize. I'm not sure what the prize will be, but it will be a nice prize.
