It’s Memorial Day Saturday, so we lead with Mickey Mantle. What could be more American than that?
In our past, this was a weekend we were in Spring Lake, New Jersey; which is a shore town and there’s truly no better place to kick off your summer. We’re spending it in Ohio this year but it carries the same significance.
It’s officially summer. The kids are out of school. Your neighborhood pool is open. The weather is going to get hot and you aren’t allowed to complain about the humidity. There’s no work Monday at your bullshit job. You should have two solid days of baseball watching on tap + today.
And damnit, this is America. This is our holiday, our weekend. Remember that. Take pride in it. Hold it near and dear.
We are stuck in the 80’s and don’t ever want to leave. This 1980’s song of the week that should be played on a ballpark loudspeaker nearest you is Belinda Carlisle and from 1988. I Get Weak!
So enjoy your Saturday. Fire up your grill or weed whack or something. Or just lay around and be a lazy American slob. It should be great.
Thank you for your continued support of Diamond Hoggers.
