Normally I don't go in for "Weird stuff on teh internets!" posts. Longtime readers know that I approach this site with a singleminded devotion to just two topics: the Atlanta Braves, and the coming Robocalypse. But I just couldn't resist. It turns out that former Philadelphia Phillie and 1993 NL Champion Darren Daulton, whose Ugly All-Stars* beat the Braves in the LCS with a .914 OPS in 25 PA, has re-emerged. He's got a new book out and a website to promote it. Allow me to quote liberally:
My book ìIf They Only Knewî provides basic information regarding metaphysics, kind of a starter kit to introduce what is happening and what to expect as December 21, 2012 approaches. This site is in the process of providing guests and opportunity to interact with other people, including myself, regarding these two synonymous topics.
I have evaluated several options as to best provide interaction amongst my guests and have decided on utilizing Facebook (Darren Dutch Daulton). Just to think several years ago I could not turn on a cyber machine (computer), now I am utilizing this technology to reach out to people who have experienced different phenomenon, and to let you know that it is perfectly normal and you are not alone.
Sports Illustrated reported on his desire to write this book back in 2006, portraying him in a negative light.
"Reality is created and guarded by numeric patterns that overlap and awaken human consciousness, like a giant matrix or hologram," writes the .245 lifetime hitter. "They are created by sacred geometry -- numbers, the language of the universe, codes of awakening -- such as 11:11, which represent twin strands of DNA about to return to balance. Eleven equals BALANCE."
Earth, Daulton believes, is entering a quadrant of space in which the "vibrational energy" will increase dramatically. "The Mayan calendar stops at Dec. 21, 2012 -- the date the Mayans believed the world would end," he says. "On that day, at 11:11 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time, those who are ready to ascend will vanish from this plane of existence, like the crew of the Enterprise in Star Trek."
It already has a 4-star rating on Amazon. Just $17.99, and it's in time for Christmas! Buy one for yourself, and one for someone special.
* Ugly All-Stars isn't pejorative, it's descriptive. In the words of this random internet commentator: "no all-ugly team is complete without a representative of the 1927 Yankees of ugly, the 1993 Phillies. How gross? Curt Schilling was one of the good-looking Phils. John Kruk, Lenny Dykstra, Mitch Williams, Mickey Morandini, David West, Jim Eisenreich... the parade of homeliness through that locker room still frightens even the most seasoned of beat reporters."
