I usually check out after the national anthem and color bars

 

After that, it is time to find beer, right?

I have a tile contractor coming tomorrow to give me an estimate. I really should clean so his estimate doesn't include hazard pay.

I'm pretty sure someone has used the name "Hazard Pay" for a band before.  Tile Contractor... probably  not.

I think a no-no is pretty likely. The closest the Twins were to a hit so far was Santana's chopper.

He looks like the type that would be in the market for new electronics on an almost daily basis.

I'll leave that one for snepp, but given my current avatar I'm thinking Poisoned Dwarf has a nice ring to it.

I believe that would be bad form.  The next guy up might get beaned.

That would be multiple base runners in the same inning. May as well go unicorn hunting instead.

We digressed into band names long before the idea of a perfect game was ever really brought up.

Why do an organized pub crawl around Northeast when I do my own pub mosey by myself on an almost nightly basis?

If Arcia does it against the shift, the next batter is Suzuki. Oakland would boo Lester if he beaned Zuk...

I didn't see the whole field, but I'm pretty sure they didn't have a chance to get Jaso. Dozier had to move a few steps to his left and then make a long throw to second.

I see Baltimore beat San Francisco 23-3 in the first NFL preseason game of the year.

 

Based on this, I predict the Vikings will miss the playoffs this year.
