"Caught the game in Los Angeles where Rafael Furcal maimed Derrek Lee. Thunder Matt entered the game late, I think he ended up with two at-bats. I tried numerous times to get a "THUNDER MATT" chant going, but the LA crowd wasn't having it. That's OK though, cause they all left in the 7th inning."And with that horribly brief post from Brant Brown on 4/26/06, the cyber-revolution known as Thunder Matt's Saloon began, and the web has never been the same.
So what do we do to honor that day? We all take the day off and fail to write a single thing. Personally I blame Buzanis. To me, he's become the reason for all of society's ills.
Anyway, hooray to us. With folks starting their own sports blog every minute or so, and with most giving up on it after about a month, I'm happy to see us still trucking along, and actually developing a small readership other than our immediate family and friends. Thanks to you guys for taking time out of your busy day and giving our site a read, even if it could possibly make you dumber after reading it.
All-90's 2B to be up later today. I was in Sioux City all week for a conference so I haven't had time to do it sooner. I had never been to Sioux City before. When I wasn't busy at workshops and conference sessions, I was taking in all the great sites and landmarks SC has to offer. OK that's a lie. When I wasn't busy with the conference, I was busy boozing it up and counting the minutes before I could get the hell out of that God forsaken town. The only positive I can say is thank God for the 4th Street Bar & Grill, which had the MLB package on DirecTV. So I was able to catch both disappointing losses on Monday and Tuesday while drinking them out of PBR.
