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.
