A Rod and Signature significance.

A Rod and Signature significance.

That great baseball analyst (and former Federal Reserve Bank Chairman) Alan Greenspan had the exact term for this. He called it "Irrational Exuberance", and the term seems to fit exactly. Of course, Mr. Greenspan was talking about economic expectations during the "dot com" stock market bubble of the 1990s. The dot com bubble was out at the plate in 2000.

Worthy homeric link, but now I'm awash in Economist banner ads proclaiming "Great Minds Like a Think."

Which calls to mind Braves pitcher Terry Forster, who perennially struggled with weight problems. Perhaps "embraced" is a better word.

Forster was once called "a fat tub of goo" by Letterman. His reply to the ribbing: "A waist is a terrible thing to mind".

The inverse of course being that a hard man is good to find.

Although, it didn't exactly take Kreskin to see that one coming.

Kreskin? Helen Keller could've called that one. McLellan got them up the hill but instead of reaching the peak he stumbled and fell. Ownership not interested in putting Humpty together again.
