Summertime

One of my colleagues on the editorial staff complained to me yesterday about the increasing Tumblrification of this fair blog. He's got a point.

But we have a plan. The school year is almost over, and with it, the hibernation of Summer Dave. We love Summer Dave and his blog epics. This year, he's planning to write a serialized novel in addition to his usual Atavist-style declaiming. Like Bart Scott, we can't wait.

Until then, enjoy Snoop listening to the Gourds.



***FLASH UPDATE***

We have a photo of rob shortly before today's altercation at his softball game.

So I just went to the fridge, saw a row of Sprites, pulled one out, cracked it open, took a sip. A jarring result. Tucked in that row, apparently, was one Bud Light. I have to start drinking now, right? The Lord works in mysterious ways.

rob said...

got in a fight at my softball game this afternoon. more of a shoving match, really. oh, and my daughter was there. father of the year.

Igor said...

That is awesome. Hard slide? Hitting up the middle? Short jokes?

Igor said...

Watching the Straight Outta L.A. 30 for 30. Al Davis just made my dead pool. Lordy, he looks bad.

other team had 7 guys, wouldn't forfeit, claiming their 8th was on the way - for 45 minutes. one of my buddies went out to talk to them, and they got mouthy. i went out to intervene, stepped between my teammate and a particularly mouthy dude, and toughguy got in my face. and, moron that i am, i chose to go back at him instead of walking away.

after someone pointed out the fact that katy was upset, i went back to the dugout. at which point she said to me, dad, you're 40!'. awesome when your 9 year-old is more mature than you.

In Field of Dreams, Ray Kinsella and Terence Mann get two beers and two dogs at Fenway for $7. In the remake they're putting out next year (starring Brad Garrett and Malcolm-Jamal Warner), it'll probably be $25.

That's the Rob I met in 1988. The little scrapper who busted a much bigger guy's nose when they squared off on the hall one drunken night. We've kind of missed that hothead since he's gone missing over the years. (We kind of haven't missed him.)

rob said...

the rumors of my maturity have been greatly exaggerated.

T.J. said...

I like when rob gets mad at softball games.

Mark said...

I just checked G:TB for the first time today. And Rob made my day. Good for you. As a fellow sub 6 footer I applaud your lack of maturity and backdown.

rob said...

i would never wear that watch.

TR said...

I wish I knew what tumblrification was. Or tumble, for that matter.

In other news, this Jorge/Laura Posada story is about to break Twiiter. People will point to this event when the Yanks shit the bed this year, but the team has been awful for a couple weeks.

There's probably a yappy twat joke to be made here but I can't come up with it. If this is the year that the wheels completely come off for the Yankees, I blame it on Minka Kelly.

Mark said...

Don't ever blame anything on Minka Kelly, Z.

Dave said...

congratulations rob-- you figured out a way to make adult league softball entertaining for 9 year olds!

Dave said...

oh-- and what did katy do to receive her punishment? (having to watch adult league softball)

I think David Gregory knocked Newt Gingrich out of the 2012 election. Newt admitted that he needs to be a lot more Gheorghe, although he didn't use those exact words.

Danimal said...

108 days 'til college football.

Gheorghe: The Wheelhouse.
