Now and Zen, it just clicks
This whole Zoltan thing with the Pirates got me thinking. It’s great that the last letter in the alphabet is finally getting some love. Until now, it was best known for putting people to sleep. When you were tired, you had to get your Zs. Check out your old Dennis The Menace comics. That’s the sound good-old Mr. Wilson made when he nodded off on the couch.
The Bucs’ “Z” can have a long life, even after they tire of the connection with “Dude, Where’s My Car?” Even now, you can derive your own meaning from it. Make the “Z” sign and you could be referring to …
- ZZ Top
- “Z,” the one-letter title of a 1969 thriller by famed director Costas-Gravas.
- Your pet zebra.
- Richie Zisk, the Pirates’ 1978 All-Star.
- Zappos, your favorite on-line shoe-shopping site.
If the Pirates have a good game tonight, things could get extremely confusing for the Giants’ pitcher. Barry Zito will be wondering whether they’re trying to tell him something.
