One of the things I love about Twitter is it’s ability to connect people that would never normally have a chance to cross paths. I realize that can be a curse at times, but it’s been a huge blessing for someone, like me, who is fairly introverted and doesn’t really enjoy interacting with people on a regular basis.
Finding other Oakland A’s fans on twitter and connecting with them, as the A’s had that incredible 2012 season, has brought a lot of people into my life that I now would call friends. Some I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Others, not yet. The song posted below comes from a man that certainly falls into that later category.
@ is one of the funniest people I follow. His sense of humor is a bit off the wall, but never mean. I like that. You usually can’t help but smile after seeing one of his tweets. So when he told A’s beat writer Susan Slusser he had a no place to post the song he had written for her, I offered some space.
I’m glad I did.
You should also go buy Susan’s book 100 Things A’s Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die. She’s a pretty good writer too.
You’ll be glad you did.
