Thanks to everybody for sending in some great blog name suggestions. There were quite a few good ones, and it made choosing rather difficult. An early favorite was Tales from the Knothole – it perfectly describes what I’m trying to do with this blog. That was until I went searching for a graphic to use as a logo. The first one I stumbled on was a very creepy Francis Dolarhyde (Red Dragon) type character, and that sort of spoiled the name.
That’s right. The Outside Corner was Bob Gibson’s domain. He owned it, and would make a career putting every imaginable pitch right there. If you wanted to challenge him out there, you might find out that he also owned just a wee bit of the inside part as well.
It is in the honor of all of those great hurlers from the 60s (and later) that I will name this blog, On the Outside Corner. Thanks Dathan for the suggestion, it was perfect.
