It has never been the case, nor will it ever be — so far as NotGraphs is concerned — that the reader’s wish is the present author’s command. Having been introduced even in the most cursory of ways to the sordid interior lives of this site’s readership, it is patently obvious that to put my wellbeing in the hands of such a group of psychological ruffians would be an exercise in folly.
This bit of common sense having been established, I’ll hasten to add that, as a reasonable gentleman, I’m more than willing to entertain reasonable requests — like this reasonable internet request, courtesy a man whose middle name appears literally to be Funk, for a GIF of Adrian Beltre mostly sliding, kinda, into second base on a double during the fourth inning of the Rangers’ 2-1 loss to Boston on Tuesday night (box).
Regard, from NESN’s broadcast of the same Red Sox-Rangers game:
Carson Cistulli has published a book of aphorisms called Spirited Ejaculations of a New Enthusiast.
