Brief Tribute to Batgirl

As many of you probably already know, one of the very best MLB-team-oriented blogs on the planet, Batgirl, has come to an end. This is sad news, to be sure, for those of us (even non-Twins fans) who frequented the endlessly witty blog. The gimmicks (Legovision!) weren't gimmicky, the community of posters was as good as you find, and the constantly innovative and creative blogging about the team through good and bad was always worthwhile.

We can't hope to aspire to the kind of quality that Batgirl brought to least, not until I get kicked off the authorship of Tatonka...but there is no question that she was one of many influences that got us blogging in the first place.

Indeed, I cannot offer as powerful a tribute here as has already been accumulated in hundreds of responses to Batgirl's announcement that she is done blogging, so go read through those, and add your two cents as well.

We salute you, Batgirl, and you will be missed.

"And do Batgirl a favor--when your favorite player strikes out with the bases loaded or muffs a bunt or walks a guy in and the crowd around you boos, I want you to stand up and shout at the top of your lungs, heart bursting with unconditional love, THAT'S MY BOYFRIEND."

Damn funny stuff. I read her blog from time to time as well. It'll definitely be missed.
