    I think that I reacted because of the first two words. And I am Agnostic, so it has nothing to do with religion.

    Also, I'm not a prude and, between a frat house and the military, have done my share of cursing.

    Read the post with it, then without it. Each sets a different tone. It was the tone that seemed
    to make it personal.

    I'm OK with moving on.

    I found the comments towards you and the religious references offensive. Neither were appropriate.

    There's no crying in baseball, I know that, but is there crying in whiffle ball?

    I kid, I kid, I'm not accusing anyone of crying. I'm only making a bad joke to try to bring it back to the original topic rather than what we each take offense to.

    We didn't play much whiffle ball in my neighborhood growing up but we played a lot of baseball with tennis balls as the ball instead. You could really send those sailing. They also didn't break windows as easily as baseballs, which is part of why we adopted tennis balls as our official "ball" because we all lost allowance a few times by busting someone's window.

    We primarily played basketball though, it took less people to get a game going. That was the early 90's when the Suns really hit it big in Phoenix and backboards for houses could be spotted on like every third driveway with an independent pole and hoop set up on like 3-4 houses on the street I grew up on. Everyone played basketball.

    A thread with such light hearted intent turns dark... man, do we collectively need some positive news or what.

    How bout them Lakers?

    Playful at someone's expense does not strike me as "humor". That's just my view.

    Don Rickles made a whole career out of it but I get your point.

    Not just you. Don Rickles and Joan Rivers were classic examples of kids we knew in school.

    Not too much confidence in themselves, so their best defense became a strong offense.

    Just a generalization, but I've seen many who fit that MO.

    I love this philosophy. When you talk, don't listen to just what you say . . .
    but, more importantly, to what they are hearing. :)

    But I forget what I wanted to say, and sometimes forget what you are saying! :) What was I saying?
