Patel and Singh have a Blog!

Emma mentioned this in the comments, but it really deserves its own post. The blog by recent Pirates signees Dinesh Patel and Rinku Singh is so fascinating and surreal that it almost reads like a work of fiction, like a Walter Kirn novel or something. These guys are both obviously very bright, and not only are they in a foreign country, they're in an absolutely insane part of that foreign country (Los Angeles, with at least one brief stop in Arizona, which is also a pretty crazy place, for different reasons), and on top of that, they're involved in the rather insane process of trying out to become professional athletes in a sport they don't know very well. Oh, and also, they have cameras following them around all the time. And they take it all in stride. This is just a fantastic blog. I love these guys.
