I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Tony Pierce is the blogmaster in G-major. If blogging was basketball, he'd be Michael Jordan combined with Shaq, but without the advanced age and fucked up knees (even though he IS 109) of MJ, and the post-KaZaam stigma of Shaq. If blogging was Football, he'd be like a cross between Bo Jackson (pre-horrific-injury) and Jerry Rice, but with the kicking leg of say, a Morton Anderson. If blogging was chess, he'd be Boris Spassky or that Russian guy that is really good, um, combined with that Bobby Fisher guy and that giant computer Deep Blue. If he was an actor, he'd be Adam West in his Batman prime - that is the HIGHEST compliment possible, to those laughing in the background. No disrespecting of Mr. West will be allowed here.
Wait, I know - Tony's a big baseball fan, so, um, how bout Tony is the blogging equivalent of Fernando Valenzuela and Orel Hersheiser in their glorious Chavez Ravine peaks? Howz that? But instead of throwing heat he's tossing verbal grenades, simultaneously keeping it real and so not true.
Anyway, Tony continues to amaze, entertain, inspire, and challenge the internet world, and from what it sounds like on his blog and those of others that know him in the land of the real people, his own actual world as well.
Rock on dude!!
