This Might Be The Best Ever New York Times Correction

Embedded image permalink

First of all, let’s just go ahead and say that R.A. Dickey is the coolest professional athlete on the planet, right?

Of note, R.A. Dickey is actually a pitcher (famous for his knuckleball), so he doesn’t even bat that often. How many pitchers name their bats? That’s great.

Now I’m thinking about naming my keyboard “Needle” in honor of Arya Stark on Game of Thrones. I pierce you with my words!

  8. Roy Hobbs’ called his Wonder Boy and Babe Ruth’s was War Club. So R. A. has every right to call his bat Orcist the Goblin Cleaver. 🙂

    Another cool thing about Dickey is he recently published an excellent – and very candid – memoir about the struggles in his early life and trying to make it in the big leagues: http://www.amazon.com/Wherever-Wind-Up-Authenticity-Knuckleball-ebook/dp/B005HN2080/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1431526682&sr=1-1&keywords=r.a.+dickey

  12. Not a big baseball fan (other than going to a game once or twice a year) but I enjoyed this video about him I saw a few weeks ago about his life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9FZDcHtAhc
