The Hot Club

Somewhere in Wisconsin, one-time Hot Club regular ME (Mary Ellen) is rooting for her Green Bay Packers.

Last week, we were talking about the AFC Championship game and I was shocked to learn that both Mike Module and his brother Kevin were rooting for the Jets against the Steelers. No, No, Nooooooo. Mike Module did note to me that the Jets played man-to-man on the Pats’ outside receivers and zone in the middle of the field.

Fleet Feet Pete and I were talking about how none of us wants to read Jim Donaldson of the Pro Jo because he is so negative. I mentioned a recent Donaldson downer column about the young PC Friars. Fleet Feet likened Donaldson to the Globe’s Dan Shaughnessy. “Yeah” I said. “He’s the Rhode Island Shaughnessy.”

The Hot Club’s ‘Asshole Cook’ (his own nickname!) was talking to his friend Liam, who was reading Sportzine. Liam noticed the quote about 3D porn. Liam said he wouldn’t want to see Ron Jeremy in 3D. Becky said she wouldn’t want to see Ron Jeremy in 2D. Of Ron Jeremy, Bags said “There’s hope for us.” Liam agreed and said that Jeremy was in there for us, this could be you, but with a 10-inch cock. Asshole Cook said “Most women wouldn’t want a 10-inch cock. Torn uterus?”

Kelley told the Bear (in from his cave) and I that Tom Brady is the spokesperson for male Uggs (‘Muggs’). She said this very disapprovingly, feeling that this is not a good thing.

We have to check this out. Maybe Gisele is behind this.

Yep, if you Google ‘male Uggs’, Tom Brady comes up as the first ever spokesperson for male Uggs, the shoe/boot company out of Australia. There is no mention of money, but this quote from Tom: “"I have worn and loved the UGG brand for a long time," (Nick Coman/NESN- 11/30/10)

Charlie Clancy told me that the Jets beat the Patriots “at the point of attack”. The offensive and defensive lines. “It’s good basic football, added Charles at Large. Jimmy Chelo, Dr. John and I all agreed.

The Hot Club

Mike Module and Fleet Feet Pete are working on a new song for when they play out as Mike and The Professor. The song is called “Pretty Good at Drinking Beer”. Hey, I’ll raise a pint glass to that.

The Hot Club recently had its employees’ Christmas Party on a Sunday. We hear that Patti Quimby and Brittan Bates returned to bartend for their former co-workers. CJ said Tom Bates didn’t want any current employees to have to work at their own party. Salute!

Fleet Feet Pete has a challenge for all Boston Red Sox fans – come up with the starting lineup of the Red Sox on opening day, including position. Mr. Feet added, “Who do you put where and why?” Mine starts with LF Carl Crawford and ends with CF Jacoby Ellsbury.

The Fleet One wants to have Carl Crawford batting in front of David Ortiz so that you take away the shift used against Ortiz. Hmmm. Very interesting.

The Wizard was talking about a Major League pitcher named Tom Simpson. I remembered him vaguely as a relief pitcher in the NL, maybe Cincinnati. The Wiz said he pitched for the Cubs.

In the background the Hot Club jukebox was playing Rod Stewart doing Reason to Believe”. I told Wiz that I loved early Rod Stewart and he pointed out it was sung while Stewart was with the Faces. Wiz said Reason to Believe was written by Ty Hardin. I said “Maybe Glen Hardin”. It was Tim Hardin, who wrote the song and recorded it in 1965.

Pal Al says that there is good fishing and great fishing. Good fishing is when you go and great fishing is when you catch something.

Fleet Feet Pete said that his mother not only threw out all the family LP records, but also all of Pete’s baseball card collection, including Ted Williams’ rookie card (1939).

Asked Kelly if she had a good time at the Narragansett Beer anniversary party at The Met. Kelly had a great time and met one of the original four “Hi Neighbor girls’. Each of the girls got the use of a Cadillac convertible for four months. The woman, now a grandmother, had pictures (black and white) of her stint in 1963.

Told the guys I saw Piranha 3D. Our Pal wondered if there was a market for 3D porn.
