    Let's just check in.

    With only the nhl playoffs (pens gone) to finish and the molasses they call baseball happening, what are you doing to hold you over from minicamp to Latrobe (so nice to type that again).

    What is your bummer of the summer sports fix?
    Ingest all things Steelers?
    Look at the paint dry?
    Recap and rehash the draft? The coulda should woulda if you will?

    Or looking forward to speaking on the season.
    How we have a D that is over paid and an O that is underpaid?
    How Minkah can't live up the the contract?
    Maybe take a dump in your jorts from some of Jim's delicious ribs causing some serious meat-sweats followed by mudbutt!?


    What's your deal for the next 2 months?!?!



    I think maybe I should make it a poll with mudbutt as an option.

    I figured boxing?
    Id assume a title fight? What is the best weight class now? I knew a few years ago there was some fun in the welterweight.

    Either way enjoy the fight!

    Not like asking for an address but are you near a nascar event?
    To that, have you been?

    As a kid, in the middle of PA driving we stumbled upon a nascar race ( probably not top tier ot anything). It was cool because we kinda trespassed by walking up to the backside fence. After about 15 mins we were told we had to go by some dude walking around. Still have no idea where or what but was neat

    Additionally, this isn't and attack but curiosity.

    How do you ingest baseball?

    The only time I have ever gotten "into" baseball was when I was hanging in a garage with the game being background sound.
    As in, we'd be sitting and tune in when there was a noise "jolt."

    Do you find yourself actively or passively watching?

    I guess I’ve been going to games for so long it’s just normal for me. I definitely don’t go to or watch as many games as I used to. I pay attention when I’m at the game. When I’m watching on tv not as much.

    The dirt track races with the box-y looking cars? Aren't they flying all over the place? It's like a quarter the size isn't it?

    As a former Chicago-ian? I'm assuming your closely following the cards? You've been up to Wrigley for a game?

    I ask because I lived next door for years and during covid, for the first time ever, I missed that game traffic during game day.

    You went to east St Louis and survived??

    I was in St Louis on business, rented a car, drove across the bridge to East St Louis at about 1am in the morning and was soon pulled over by a cop. He asked if I was an out of towner or something. I said yes and he told me to immediately go right back over the bridge not to stop for any stop light or stop sign and go now. I did a double take and asked him if he (a cop) said to go thru all the stop lights and stop signs to get out. And he said yes.

    I wouldn’t golf with serious golfers we just pissed each other off

    Now I had two buddies and we played 9 every Tuesday

    Everyone took a six pack no one took a score card if the ball went in the woods you looked for 30 seconds if you found one someone else lost you played it

    Regarding baseball DishNetwork dropped Pirates baseball telecasts so I’m back to listening on the radio like 50 years ago

    I think I like radio better

    I went to the Dirt track races last weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks. They had the Winged and non winged sprint cars. It was a blast. I’m not exactly sure which cars you’re talking about as they run several different styles at these tracks.

    I think it's because the left field has all the "structure"

    You're there and can see **** unless you're n your seat.
    Or it's a playoff joke...

    Am I wrong?
    I'm not a Chicago native nor currently live but would love the lore.

    Crazy speeds on a small track.

    It was a rough crowd

    People in right field didn’t like the people in left field and vice versa

    Chants of left field sucks would be followed by chants from left field that right field sucks

    You sat in one or the other but you didn’t change allegiance
