Happy Thursday, GN!

Happy to read that both Sven’s eye and Jack Tatum are healing; moar, please.

=======================

The Gwinnett Stripers (our local Atlanta Braves farm team whose under-performing stadium is being paid-for at gunpoint by us taxpayers) are having a Pride Night next month. This will feature a rainbow flag being flown during the game, rainbow tape on the bats and -- I shit you not -- peoples’ preferred pronouns on their employee name badges.

I wonder if they’re going to have themed concessions that night, too? (I’m demonstrating enormous self-restraint by not providing any of the examples I’ve thought of.)

*Sings*
Take me out to the Pride game
Take me out with the crowd
Sure, this facility runs at a loss
But wait until you taste our new Secret Sauce…

Good morning, Fatwa. Jack Tatum just returned home from a night out doing whatever he does. His head is still healing but no sign of infection, just a bunch of scabs.

I’n getting real tired of eye drops, but for a change I can see clearly now as the rain is gone, er I can clearer now as the blurriness recedes.

Impeachment. It’s what’s for breakfast for the rest of the year apparently. I say go for it, lefties and let the chips fall. Do your duty. For America. For the children.

The video of the man setting himself on fire yesterday is interesting -- how do you do that and just stand there?

Hi, Sven!

Glad to know that Jack’s doing okay and that your eye is, too. (+1 point for the Johnny Nash reference.)

…how do you do that and just stand there?

I’ve got no answer.

SackO’SugarK and I really hope he wasn’t a desperate veteran who was being jacked around by the VA.

BrendaK, after just now being apprised of Gwinnet Stripers Pride night, pondered if vendors were going to be hawking “Tube-shaped meat products, here!”

Which is a lot less crass than anything I came up with. 👿

(I’m sure glad she let me catch her.)

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Pride Night with the Gwinnett Strippers[sic]?
Will they have extra bat boys?
Pre-game pole dancing?
What will the seventh inning stretch look like?
Free @ssless chaps for the first 1000 fans in attendance?
Will the players be autographing balls?
Will they have a designated catcher?

Hi, Paddy and Mac!

I tend to read the new name of our local ball club (formerly Gwinnett Braves) as “Strippers” too, Paddy. The name was inspired by the striped bass at somewhat-nearby Lake Lanier, which is apparently a mecca for that sort of fishing. (The lake also demands multiple human sacrifices every year.)

Will the players be autographing balls?

I RL LOL’d at that one.

Mac --

Glad that kitteh’s safe, but the headline was a little misleading; clearly wasn’t “stuck”. 😉

This is so cat.

Indeed.
