Continuum Classic: Jen Mac Ramos’ “Baseball Bonds”

As some of you active on Twitter may know, friend-of-the-Continuum Jen Mac Ramos’ family was involved in a horrific car accident this past weekend. A drunk driver struck their car, killing Jen’s husband Josh and leaving Jen with severe injuries. A GoFundMe site has been set up to help pay for Jen’s medical expenses and recovery, and anyone looking to donate is encouraged to head there as soon as possible.

I would not be able to claim that I know Jen, although I have often liked Jen’s Tweets and read Jen’s work, but In some way we can see a piece of Jen by reading the piece they contributed to the 2016 Baseball Continuum Blogathon. Entitled “Baseball Bonds,” it was one of my favorite pieces of that inaugural (and ultimately only, as my real job forced me to cut back) Blogathon. You can find it with only minimal edits (removing things about the Blogathon and updating Jen’s bio to note this was written in 2016) after the jump:

BIZARRE BASEBALL CULTURE PREVIEW

Aside

Well, due to some things getting in the way, I won’t have a Bizarre Baseball Culture up by tomorrow. Instead, it’ll be later in the week.

However, I am willing to give you a preview: It is a comic about Spider-Man and Ghost Rider (both conveniently in Toronto) helping a Blue Jays fan who has been hit by a drunk driver.

I’m hoping it’ll be up by the end of the week.

In the works at the Baseball Continuum….

So, I know I didn’t end up putting my “no explanations given” predictions last Friday, but I swear I am not falling back into one of my long hiatuses. In fact, I have a few things in the works.

These are just things I have in the works- there is nothing stopping me from just writing something spur of the moment, as I did with the Mike Trout and trout post.

DEFINITELY coming this week:

  • “No explanations given” predictions for the 2019 MLB season

PROBABLY coming this week:

  • A “Bizarre Baseball Culture” look at a public domain comic

IN EARLY APRIL:

  • Updated versions of my Shazam/Captain Marvel “Bizarre Baseball Cultures” in honor of the release of the Shazam! movie.
  • A “Famous for Something Else” installment

IN MID APRIL:

  • A “Bizarre Baseball Culture”-adjacent post

IN LATE APRIL:

  • Probably an Avengers-related “Bizarre Baseball Culture”

So, yeah… stuff is in the works.
