Cindy’s fan loves column enough to eat it

In this SR file photo, Noah Krause, 7, of Spokane, Wash., shovels in a mouthful of almond chicken during Pig Out in the Park at Riverfront Park in Spokane.

A man was so impressed by Cindy's column re: Pig Out in the Park that he called the Spokane office to say that he had clipped it out and ate it. “It was delicious,” he said. Then, he admitted that he hadn't eaten the column but he had licked the newsprint. You can hear the phone recording on the link above.

Question: Have you ever had an unabashed fan?

APhoto Of The Day — 8.24.10

Top Cutlines:

  • 1. There’s no crying in baseball. Even if you’re a dork and totally blow catching a foul ball in front of your girlfriend. Even if you get a huge black eye and lose your vision in that eye and your girlfriend leaves you for a guy who can catch. Even then, there’s no crying in baseball — CindyH.
  • 2. Why do you look at the marble in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the baseball in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the marble out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a baseball in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the baseball out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the marble from your brother’s eye — Nic.
  • 3. In an unexpected place, the Mariners find their new left fielder — JohnA.
  • HM: Charlie & Soaf
