Provided for your off-day horror/amusement, an email conversation on the feed between someone from Boeing and me, as I work through the Feed queue.
Where on Capitol Hill is the pizza feed?
I assume its all-you-can-eat for $22!
I had two thoughts: first, for whatever reason, I decided not to give out the location in the announcements. Second, I’m concerned that in ensuring that they get all-you-can-eat, we’re looking at someone more interested in attending to get a lot of pizza for their money, rather than someone who wants to go to a USSM event and hang out. I have visions of someone showing up with the intention of eating all of the top-shelf pizzas as the other 49 people look on in horror.
Plus, I’ve been on the internet a long time, I’ve written for places where you immediately get 100 emails the instant the article goes up, so I’ve developed a fairly good sense for when trouble’s ahead, and it’s telling me this is bad news.
I wouldn’t say it’s all-you-can-eat, but there’s going to be a ton of pizza.
You want to RSVP then?
What is the location of the feed? There are several pizza places I do not
like quality of food. Thus my participation is bsed on quality of place
since teh fee charge is $22.
While this is reasonable, I’d argue $22 for an event is pretty good (I mean really, we paid a ton of money for the Safeco Feeds, and that catering was poor), and again, I’m wary. I set it aside to ponder.
SFB grows impatient quickly:
What is wrong with this group? I previously asked a question about the
location and name of pizza feed and my question was ignored in thereply
I commented but the a—u-can-eat pizza comment posted on the message board
and then the reply states this is not necessarily true!
why is the communication so poor in trying to answer people?
And he quotes us:
Friday, October 13th, ~6pm-8pm+, Capitol Hill, Seattle. About 50 people
total. No announced special guests, just me, Jeff, Dave, you and a good four
dozen or so other Mariner fans. Weâ€™ll probably do some Q&A, Iâ€™ll have some
Q&A for everyoneâ€¦ good times. We may podcast any Q&A we do – Jeffâ€™s
considering how weâ€™d pull this off.
$22 includes all the pizza you can eat (many varieties, lots of it), salad,
soda, and a tip. If you want to order beer, weâ€™ll talk about that at the
feed but itâ€™s not included in that $22. The foodâ€™s going to be great.
I’m a busy guy. Sorry.
You still are so impolite you continue to refuse to answer the questions
below. It’s almost like you work fro Bavassi as he is the most incompetent
baseball trader in the big leagues today!
You can guess my reaction to that.
I’d argue that Bavasi’s actually a pretty good trader compared to his peers. His biggest weakness is free agent signings.
Thanks for writing,
1. You are incorrect as every trade he has made shows no value!
2. Anyone can OVERPAY for a free agent and get a decent palyer. Bavassi
works with 95 million dollar budget and is a failure producing a quality
with a “human rain delay” personality manager!
3. You faield to address the pizza location
4. You have change the intention of the meeting to all-u-can-eat…too
Are you sure you don’t run a small chinese grocery store with outdated items
on the shelf?
Pretty sure, yeah.
That’s just not true, though. He got outstanding value for Garcia, for instance. And my point, and I guess I wasn’t clear about this, was that he does not do a good job with his free agent choices.
Three damn times you ignore questions.
>>3. You faield to address the pizza location
>>4. You have change the intention of the meeting to all-u-can-eat…too
As for Garcia he has NOTHING to show for it has his tupidity to trade for
one catcher resulted in multiple transactions to get another catcher who was
They were going to lose Garcia in free agency anyway. I think you’re neglecting that Jeremy Reed and Mike Morse came over as well. Also, if you’re saying that Johjima is overpaid, you might want to compare his salary with other free agent catchers. He’s quite the bargain, relatively.
Look I do not care about you Mariner diatrine!
Answer teh ONLY questions I asked:
1) where is pizza feed located and name of rest?
2) Why do you advertise all-u-can-eat then change you story?
Your repeated emails are disturbing and if more people are like you and
cannot listen or answer emails competently then it’s worthless to join the
And I reply:
Thanks for your interest in the Feed. Unfortunately, we stopped taking RSVPs yesterday, when we turned in our final head count and food order. Sorry.
You are an ASSHOLE!
For 3 days I try to get answers out fo you and all you do is blab!
Next time I see Q13 sports announcer DeVoe I will tell him your a jerk!
