The Endless Debate, with Arthur Schopenhauer


The time ZWR sat down for coffee with Arthur Schopenhauer and got him to offer his opinion on a topic of debate amongst certain Phillies fans.
ZWR: Good Morning, Art!

AS: Hello. Big fan, by the way. I loved that bit you did about Dr. Seuss.

ZWR: Oh, thanks! That was a ways ago.

AS: I know. I'm retro.

ZWR: Very quickly, as I know you're busy. There's been a lot of debate amongst the Phillies blogosphere and twitterverse...

AS: Pardon?

ZWR: Dork stuff.

AS: Ahhhhh, yes, of it I know all too well. I mean, I did live in Weimar! (He laughs)

[Fist bump!]

ZWR: Anyway, folks are getting nasty with this whole stats vs. not-stats thing. What are your thoughts? Are you a Sabermetrician? Old school? Combo guard?

AS: Like Mookie Blaylock?

ZWR: Dude you rule.

AS: My boy, opinion is like a pendulum and obeys the same law. If it goes past the centre of gravity on one side, it must go a like distance on the other; and it is only after a certain time that it finds the true point at which it can remain at rest.

  1. WOW, I'm blown away by this Mookie Blaylock reference. I don't possess the vocabulary to say how incredible it is

  2. Pearl Jam Ten was named after Mookie Blaylock. Because Mookie Blaylock rules.
