It’s National Beer Day! YAY!!!!!!!!  Celebrate by enjoying a tap at anyone of our fantastic local breweries and/or #PickYourSix at Trixie’s Liquor on East Wash! I definitely won’t be trying vagina beer.

High school baseball coach Rob Querry told his players that if they win 14 games he’ll let the team name his future baby.  Well, they won 14 games, and the baby shall be named Benny Smalls, a la The Sandlot (one of the best movies ever made!) The wife was SUPER cool about it, and the baby is due in September.

We have received a (non)update on the (supposedly) upcoming Tool record. The guy that runs their website apparently went to their rehearsal space, and shared this nugget with us: “At this stage of the writing/arranging process… there are only a couple of ‘shorter’ songs left to complete (?), along with a segue or two or three.” He added, “Of course, we need to keep in mind any changes that might be needed to accommodate the vocals, etc., once all of the arrangements are finished.”  So….. like I said, it’s a non update. Thanks. This is the worst game of “Just the Tip” ever.

Merle Haggard died, and I wouldn’t ordinarily mention it to you all, but neither Greg nor Johnny knew what his song “Okie from Muskogee” was about….it’s about someone from Muskogee, Oklahoma. Okie. Oklahoma….. oye…. anyway, RIP Merle.
