We’re declaring a truce for 48 hours

This Alex Rodriguez stuff is getting a little personal now. Here one of my most recent e-mails:

Dear (bad word):

I read your coverage on Alex Rodriguez and it was (bad word) awful. It’s (bad word) like you who will drive Alex out town.

(More bad words)


So, I am declaring this an Alex Rodriguez-free zone. From now until 3 p.m. on Friday, I will not write the words “Alex Rodriguez” on this blog. Perhaps that will bring a sense of calm to the proceedings.

But there could well be a reason to mention the third baseman. So rather than write his name, I will use the name of beloved cartoon character Underdog.

So I call on you to please refrain from writing you-know-who’s name for 48 hours so that we can have peace in our time.
