The Hot Club

THE HOT CLUB WHERE HEARTS ARE ON FIRE BUT IT’S NEVER TOO HOT FOR THE DEVIL MAY CARE 575 South Water Street, Prov. Readers of this periodical will have the opportunity to hear a very good local band, The Professors, at your very own Hot Club. The band will play Wednesday, October 3 from 6-9 PM. As Philippe and Jorge say: ‘Be there or be square.’ I will be there ‘God willin’ and the creek don’t rise (thank WBCN’s Charles Laquidara & Hank Williams)’. Britt recently had an anniversary – 23 years tending bar at the Hot Club. According to Britt, it is the most stable relationship that she has ever had. Salute Britt! All hail Britt! Mike Module was reminiscing about Frequent Flyer (RIP Thom). He said they were on FF’s boat once and a woman aboard was stung in the thigh/hip area by a bee. Thom yelled to Mike, “You’ve got to suck out the venom!” Was talking to Jimmy Chelo and Chet about the PawSox’ great season and winning the International League Championship. I told Jimmy and Chet that I turned on the PawSox game against the Reno Aces, the Pacific Coast League champs. It was the 3rd inning and Pawtucket was down 7-0. I turned it back on in the 5th inning. Reno’s starter Trevor Bauer (the 3rd pick in last year’s draft by Arizona) had an 8-2 lead but had the bases loaded and two outs. The Aces’ manager came out and pulled Bauer (7 walks) who didn’t get the win because he hadn’t gotten through the 5th. A lesson learned. Keep your focus, even with a big lead. The Reno Aces’ manager is Brett Butler (Rick Burleson is Hitting Coach). A get well wish to Jimmy and Chet’s friend Mario who just had bi-pass surgery. We were talking about Mark Knopfler opening for Bob Dylan. I told Fleet Feet Pete that Dylan’s voice was never good but now it’s like a croak. Just then a 3rd party commented about not even being able to understand what Dylan was singing, and said Dylan must have taken voice lessons from Linda Blair. Fleet Feet Pete said he endorsed that remark. Poly Sci Steve told me that he brought Bags some DVDs while he’s recovering from knee surgery. Among his choices was Weekend at Bernie’s (I and II), one of my favorites. I told Bags he needs to watch Office Space. FootJoy suggested two possibilities for the soon to be vacant Red Sox managerial position – Arnie Beyeler (PawSox manager) or Ryan Sandberg (Phils’ AAA manager). Good to see the Siren of Syracuse in the HC. Our wishes for a speedy return to health for Mike K. Sportzine is also available at jimdawsonsports.com (Thanks to Buffalo Steve)
