Edit: Sunday Night Baseball - BSox @ Tigers - Sat Night Drinking/End of Tigers Game Thread

Submitted by LongLiveBo on June 7th, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Imbibing Bud Light and watching the Tigers beat up on the Sox.  One is great, the other is not.  The Tigers are up 8-4 going into the top of 9.


Edit:  I decided to just add on to this thread.  Tigers are down 0-1 on the way to the bottom of 3.  Sanchez vs Lackey

Pretty damn great day at The Palace for me.

All-night party tonight at Dumars and then we shall raid the Steak and Shake at 5am.

I suppose downing 3 Labbatts when I got home counts for the drinking thread portion.

but watch out for the MIP ticket for the 3 brewski's.   you'd be surprised how easy and unexpected it is to get contacted by the cops on one of those.

n.b.  say NO and REFUSE to take the PBT they will offer you unless you are stopped and driving a vehicle.   they need a warrant for that so don't let them brow-beat you or trick you into 'consent'.  be safe, stop drinking (for now), and enjoy your special evening.

That runner doesn't mean anything, there is no double play in order and he will not tie the game. If you think the shift is the best way to get the batter out, you shift. If you want to argue the merits of the defensive shift, great, but it would take an equal number of hits to tie/win even if you allow that guy to steal home.

I've been enjoying the end of the Tigers game (trying to do so, then Joe Nathan) after a rather busy day of recitals and afterparties for my daughter. A summer of calm - relatively speaking - awaits us after her final classes on Monday, and then of course school lets out for the summer on Thursday, so life reverts to swim classes and family trips. To celebrate all this, I have some Angry Orchard cider.

Had a Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA and now it's off to sleep to the sounds of a nice rain storm. Probably going to Gatorland or SeaWorld tomorrow. I need to recharge the batteries before following the kids around in 95 degree heat tomorrow.

as it relates to the tigers this year.  it is hard enough to check up on them with the espn feed.  yeesh, they are desperately trying to give their season away.  fortunately tonight the bosox just couldn't quite come up with that one extra hit.

salmon plus a nothing-fancy white wine with the family after a few hours on the tractor.   also went to a fly-fishing show with some of the kids.  very pleasant.   all quiet on the northern front tonight.

so i'm getting buck wild. jk, gluttonous amounts of sports today.

also, to update on my projector set up:  spent $300 on a projector, $100 on a pair of tower speakers, unreal deal for an open box pioneer 4 hdmi receiver at best buy for $100 (brand new price was $250), $50 for an ikea stand for my projector that also serves as a dock for all my xbox 360 and ps4 controllers and games, and $40 for blackout curtain liners.

This is the result:  

that's 110 inches of quality picture for $600. and it's very serviceable during the day. pretty proud of the set-up--unfortunately blew all my savings.
