Happy 4th of July
I’m out of town and moderately off the grid and I just heard that a hurricane passed by or through North Carolina. I swear to God, the first thing I thought of was “good thing that fuckin’ clown decided to raise his house after the last one.” I checked the comments in the last thread, sounds like he’s ok and he broke off one of the great one-liners in Flap history:
“Living along the Hurricane Belt is kinda like being a Giants fan: You pay the price and you get to ride the ride.”
If he was able to generate that type of gold with a maelstrom swirling around, I’m assuming he’s just fine.
Today we play a team with the worst offense in the league and will be facing a starting pitcher that is one of the worst in the league. We should roll tide today, right? 11-3? Something like that?
Or lose 3-1 because we suck.
Happy 4th to all you guys and anyone else even loosely associated with Flavor Nation. This is my favorite holiday of the year and no, I don’t light shit on fire. Just love the day. Gonna go bone up on the contestants in this year’s hot dog eating contest. I’m guessing that is NOT one of Loo’s favorite competitions to watch. 🙂
31 years ago today, this happened. Was there anything more “4th of July” than this? Raggs throws a no hitter striking out Wade Boggs while Billy Martin does a quiet, nervous burn on the bench during the final out. You know, nowadays we just don’t seem to have moments like this anymore. I guess that’s why they’re *moments* you never forget……
