Very Good Blog

Normally, the Daily Nuzzo doesn’t give shout outs to any of our “competitors”, but it is with much thought and admiration that we alert the general public to another phenomenal blog: The Million Dollar Arm

The Pittsburgh Pirates (who?) recently produced a reality TV show in India in order to find athletes who could throw strikes at 85 miles per hour or faster. Apparently the U.S. is lacking such athletes. According to the AP, Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel signed professional baseball contracts with the Pirates for the 2009 season after winning the competition. The two 20-year-old pitchers never picked up a baseball prior to the competition and are believed to be the first athletes from India to sign professional baseball contracts outside their country.

Rinku and Dinesh are not only the best Indian baseball players, but they also may be the world’s best bloggers. Their frequent updates on “Pirate City” (Pittsburgh) provide an outsider’s perspective on American culture and life as a professional athlete. A recent post, “Very Bad Thing Happen To Us,” described their dealings with a Topps sports cards rep:

Yesterday locker room man coming to us from company Topps. He saying we sign contract. We telling him we not reading this english. we say he have talking JB sir. He saying he talking JB sir and JB sir say OK signing. So we signing this thing and he give me and Dinesh $5.00. Then we finding out JB sir not knowing this. Man from company lying to us. We never making same mistake like this again. We giving JB sir the heart pains and we very sorry.

The Million Dollar Arm is truly an inspiration to the Daily Nuzzo. When you think about it, we’re really one in the same as I also encounter similar situations to Rinku and Dinesh: “Fans sending us photo and things Pirate City. Fans asking we signing things. We getting more emails we answering. We trying and writing all we can writing each day.”

So please, keep the Daily Nuzzo fan mail coming. We very appreciate.
