Another New Addition to the Saloon

January 23, 2007 | Comments (0) | by Jake the Terrible Cubs Fan

Thunder Matt's would like to welcome onto staff Jimmy Johnson's confidante and all-around douchebag, Tommy Buzanis. Tommy drinks hard liquor on the rocks and scoffs at men who eat anything other than steak. Tommy is your drunk uncle that makes inappropriate comments at family gatherings. He refers to himself in the third person and also owns a houseboat with a crude sexual name, which he has lived on since his his thrid wife kicked him out of the house for making passes at his mother-in-law. He is a loyal friend with a firm, almost painful handshake, but if you stab him in the back, it's quite possible that your family could turn up missing, or worse, dead.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome Tommy Buzanis to the Saloon. He would prefer you stand up and clap.
