Pardon our Dust

Like most of you, Rickey occasionally finds himself needing some extra cash to satisfy his cockfighting habit. So in the name of entrepreneurialism (read: unbridled internet shilling), we’re trying out this Google AdSense thing.

For the uninitiated, Google AdSense "is a fast and easy way for website publishers of all sizes to display relevant, unobtrusive Google ads on their website's content pages and earn money." Those are Google’s words, not ours--Rickey isn’t good at writing cheerfully capitalistic prose.

Now legally, Rickey can’t actually tell you to actually click any of the ads that may appear on this site. It’s kind of a no-no. But since the advertisements are automatically generated from keyword content written on this very site, rest assured that any ads that appear here will indeed qualify as “Rickey Approved.” And what might these ads be promoting? Well given the diverse range of topics Rickey likes to delve into, here are some of the products we’re expecting to see listed:

  • Local smoked fish mongers

  • Volvo owners clubs

  • “Fantasy Baseball for Dummies”

  • Meerkat husbandry programs

  • Obscure indie bands

  • History Channel WWII shows

  • Lots and lots of Mets crap

  • Lots and lots of “24” crap

  • Viva PiƱata walkthroughs

  • “How to” books on cockfighting

On a sidenote, let’s take a moment to discuss the whole cockfighting thing. Rickey has already explained this to the police. He doesn’t even live at that house. He’s never there. Unless there’s a cockfight going on. But it’s not as if Rickey organizes that stuff. It’s very spontaneous and free-flowing. Everything clear now? Good.

Assuming Rickey hasn’t already violated Google’s program policies (entirely possible), look for ads to show up here in a few days.

Rickey, I heard you are contemplating a comeback in the big leagues. What gives?

This is the kind of post that makes me happy. Meerkat husbandry. That's something special right there.

Yeah Joe, at the young age of 48, Rickey is considering a comeback. If that schmuck Clemens can do it than so can Rickey.

I forgot to mention the potential downside to Rickey returning to baseball. If he does, he resets the clock on his Hall of Fame induction. And aren't we all waiting for what will be the the best Hall of Fame induction speech ever?

That being said, he should totally sign with the Mets. He's actually a year younger than Julio Franco.
