Now that I’ve started actually reading the blogs in my blogroll, I’m finding it interesting to see my interests represented in the least likely places.
For example, whoda thunk that Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog would contain a positive review of Battlestar Galactica?
by Johannes Wycliffe
In this boke of science ficcion, a man ycleped Wycliffe is the bishop of the gret chirche of Seynt Paules, the which is lyk vnto a mighty shippe and kan moue thurgh the voyde of the planetes. Al othir chirches on the earth haue ben destroyed by the deuil and his feendes, who haue taken on the visages of men and look exactlie lyk friares. Ther is a mighti ladye of feyth called Margery Starbaxter, who ys a loyal warryour for the chirche and sleyeth the friares. And eek ther ys a traytour named Belshazzar who doth see visions of a sexie friar yn his heed who telleth hym to betraye the goode folke of Seynt Paules. Sum oon nedeth to jump on this sucker and turne hit in to a series of television.
Similarily, Googling God is not the first place I’d expect to see a post on the 1986 Mets. I have to say it warms my heart to learn that Mike Hayes — whom I’ve grown fond of while listening to his work the Busted Halo podcast — states he’s a Mets fan.
I learned a little while back that Josh of Comics Curmudgeon is also a Mets fan. Perhaps that is the undiscovered connection among great bloggers everywhere: a love for the Mets. If so it makes for good tidings for my own efforts.
