    Email to Peter King



    Anyone read MMQB this morning?

    King was commenting on Peyton Manning's consecutive games streak and called it "a Gherig-ian pursuit".

    I emailed Pete with the following:

    Hey Peter,

    Q: What is Gehrig-ian?

    A: Something that Ripken-ian slaughtered by (count 'em) 500 games.


    What a dope.

    Ha!

    King is too grumpy to even respond, I bet.

    For some reason, as I read your post I was reminded of the great Denis Leary rant about how he loves to smoke, and, screw it, we're all going to die someday...

    Babe Ruth, greatest baseball player to ever play the game. He had a voice box. He was the first American to have a voice box. Yeah! "[VB] This is Babe Ruth, the Sultan of Swat, the Bambino, I smoke twenty-five God damn cuban cigars a day. I had meat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I fucked eighteen prostitutes a night! 'course, I'm dead now. I'm up here in heaven. Lou Gehrig is up here with me. God love Lou Gehrig. Jesus Christ, poor Lou Gehrig. Died of Lou Gehrig's disease. How the hell did he not see that coming? You know. We used to tell him, Lou, there's a disease with your name all over it, pal! There ain't no Babe Ruth disease, I'll tell you that much right now. Have a hot dog and a Hummer. Go ahead, it's on me."

    King has good contacts, but that's about it. He's awful at football knowledge.

    He tweets about 20 times a day and sometimes goes at it with people who respond. You might wanna try that approach for a good laugh

    I would have said "Ripken-esque," but that's just me, LOL! Good job though!
