Past Josh Thole Comes Back To Save Present Josh Thole

Or something like that. Jason Isringhausen — take that, beat writers. Twelve years later and I can still spell that name without looking it up — from the past looks a lot like Josh Thole from the present. I twote thus this morn’, and Ted Berg posted further visual evidence this afternoon, in the above link.

I really want to come up with a backstory about why Josh Thole needed to travel back in time to 1993 and become a middling relief pitcher, only to meet himself again in 2011, but I can’t come up with one. And I’m not just saying “I can’t come up with one” just to say it. I’ve spent chunks of time today thinking about this, and honestly cannot come up with a good reason that makes sense or doesn’t devolve into a paradox. I never could have written The Terminator.

  1. personally, i believe “twote” is a much better verbiage than “tweeted”. i understand that twitter has become engrained in the sports journalism world, but the notion of middle aged dudes “tweeting” on their blackberries is still a bit funny to me.

  2. Don’t sell yourself short. I fully believe you could write the Terminator. Especially now that it already exists.
