I posted this in the comments on Joe Posnanski's site, after reading several groveling encomiums (encomia?) to Poz by several posters:
"Jeez, people, calm down. Mr. Posnanski is one of America's best sportswriters and what he writes, on sports or not, tends to make sense and be funny. I wish I had his ability, and I respect his opinion.
That said, all this salaaming and "We're not worthy"ism is a bit excessive. We all like Joe's writing; that's why we're here. But please stop gushing.
Rush Limbaugh fans cut through the obeisance by saying, "Dittoes," to show their unconditional love for Rush, before making their point.
Joe Posnanski fans should have their own saying that we use to show our approbation of Joe before making our point.
I suggest "Duanes," since Duane Kuiper is Joe's favorite player. If you're feeling especially enthusiastic, then post 'Megaduanes.'"
