"Post" Ipsa Loquitur

Baseball Widow is disappointed to announce that she will be discontinuing her fantasy team, The Eye-Candies, and the blog that chronicles them. Baseball Widow received a cease and desist letter from the representation of Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Randy Johnson. Portions of the letter are excerpted below. . .

". . . by undertaking your identification of visually stimulating baseball players, using such terms as "hot", "attractive", "cute", and "handsome", you intentionally and willfully maligned those members of Major League Baseball who do not meet your requirements. Our client, Mr. Johnson, was specifically injured by your statements that "If God had wanted men to have facial hair, he wouldn't have invented razors" and "mustaches are really ugly."

As Mr. Johnson's legal representation, we must insist that you immediately cease and desist your weblog (hereinafter "blog") entitled "The Eye-Candies", located at hypertext address Failure to do so by 12:00 a.m. (Midnight) Eastern Standard Time on April 1, 2004 will result in legal action on Mr. Johnson's part."

Well, it was fun while it lasted, folks.
