In one day, we had references to Larry Sheets, Pete LaCock (the son of Hollywood Squares host Peter Marshall, by the way), the heckling of Darrr-rrrryl, hitting on Hooters girls, and taking a pop fly off the noggin. Just to name a few. Find that kind of diversity on The Onion.
Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of the death of one of my best friends, one of my old college roommates. And I definitely needed a laugh or two. And my regulars -- and some newbies -- sure came through. Toby Keith is right after all. I love this bar. Absolutely great stuff, people.
Patron Joe suggested that one, and it was a beauty. We are in the process of setting up a way that will allow you to send me some of your own daily think special ideas whenever you want. Stay tuned for that.
My 9-year-old son wanted to get into the action, so this one is coming from him, though I tweaked it a little bit. I know, technically, I could lose my license if a third-grader was found in the bar. But lucky for me today just happens to be "Bring your real child to cyber-fake-work day."
What luck, huh?
Anyway, my son, Alex, wants to know, 'Who is the best pitcher of all time in a World Series?' We'll go with that one, but tweak it some. You know, dads can't totally give in to their sons. Next thing you know he'll want a Porsche and a night out on the town with TriHill and a gaggle of Hooters girls.
This one is a two-parter for today. And for those of you who get easily confused when we bring up math, that means we want you to answer both questions in one statement.
Daily Think Special: If your team were in the seventh game of the World Series, -- could be the Orioles, could be anyone -- who would you want on the mound to start that game? Go with your gut. Who is the guy that will give you his best on the biggest stage, even if you haven't seen it before? Give me someone who is retired (or dead) and also someone who is currently pitching.
