Love Letters by Larry Mahnken
Some people just don't get satire. Here's an actual email I got this morning:
You complete moron. I can understand the fact that you like the Yankees, but EVEN WRITING that Miguel Cairo, a scrub who should start for Columbus, is BETTER than the fourth best second baseman in the MLB is fucking insane. Rating JON LIEBER, WHO WENT 6-17 WHEN HE LAST PITCHED, ahead of THE best pitcher of our era is the most amazingly idiotic statement that a person can make. I know why you even write for an internet publication. You were a mistake who has a hole through his chest from the coathanger your mother tried to stab you with when you were unborn. I believe that you are the WORST writer in the HISTORY of the sports world, and nobody loves you because of your closed-minded statements, such as HIDEKI MATSUI is better than MANNY RAMIREZ? YOU LIVE IN A SHITTY APARTMENT IN THE BRONX AND SNEAK INTO YANKEE GAMES YOU GIGANTIC FAGGOT. PLEASE DO US ALL A FAVOR AND KILL YOURSELF BY HANGING YOURSELF FROM THE LIGHT IN YOUR SHITTY CLOSET. YOU HOMO.
YOU FAIRY. I DONT EVEN KNOW YOU, AND I HOPE THAT EVERYTHING BAD IN THE WORLD HAPPENS TO YOU AND YOU ALONE. I HATE YOU. YOU DESERVE TO BE PISSED UPON.
SIGNED, THE PERSON WHO THINKS YOu'RE A GIGANTIC FAGGOT
