08/05/2004: Thought for the Day:
[W]ell, you ever see some guy mess with a dog? The dog will be all eager to play fetch, and the guy will fake-throw a tennis ball or something like that. The dog will take off running, then come back, confused, after she figures out the guy is still holding the ball. So then the guy will again rear back like he's gonna throw the ball, and again the dog will take off, tongue happily hanging out, before she realizes she's been duped again. By the third time the guy can't fake her out so easily. He'll rear back to throw, but the dog will cock her head and give him a look, half-hopeful, half-wary, not really sure if she should play along or not. That's how I feel with Rick Ankiel. He's the guy with the ball; I'm the dog.
