October 2nd Game Meetup — The Back of My Pickup Truck

partytruck

Sorry for the late notice, fair NotGraphs readers, but if you are in the vicinity of my truck this evening, I’m hosting an impromptu NotGraphs meetup. See, I planned on watching tonight’s Wild Card game at my house on my TV, but I got in a little bit of a tiff with the old ball and chain about a totally misinterpreted text message from her SECOND cousin. Things got out of hand, as it happens.

But, this will not stop me from enjoying what is promising to be a great pitching matchup and an exciting playoff game. And since my schedule has cleared up quite a bit, I figured I’d invite some of my adoring fans to watch as well. Trust me, this is not some sort of needing-to-be-surrounded-by-people-because-I-shouldn’t-be-alone-right-now situations. I’m doing great, you guys.

We won’t have a TV, but I will have Postseason.TV playing on my iPad. It’s an iPad Mini, so things might get a little tight, but it’s really more about the hang, right guys? Also, I’ve run into a bit of a cash flow problem right now. I need to move some money around, and, at the moment, am fairly cash poor. So if you could supply some beverages, that would be great. Make sure to get there early as space is limited, and the shocks on the truck are kind of shot so there’s a weight restriction as well.

When: 7:00 pm CT.

Where: The back of my 2000 Chevy Silverado

Confirmed attendees:

David Temple (NotGraphs/FanGraphs that one time)

My labradoodle Jeff (He’s hypoallergenic and totally chill)

Whatever belongings I could grab before my wife changed the locks.

 

Just some beers, buds, and baseball. What could be better?

So effectively you have eliminated the chance that Shaq won’t be shacking up in your home away from home.

Because that would only happen in your other car the Chevy Lakers Tahoe.

And if you’re going to make such a bold claim, you should use bold. Not italics. Italics are for pussies. And Carson.

Also, the buttmunch score for pickup owners (wOBUTT) is calculated using z-scores of several key statistical indicators:

– window stickers
– lift kit
– rims/tires
– bumper nuts
– bass

Clearly, this truck is well below replacement level. That’s a good thing.

Sincerely,
Fellow plain pickup owner.

I’ll be watching at the McDonald’s off the interstate. That’s the place for hot Wild Card action.

I’ll bring what’s left of my growler of Alesmith Speedway Stout, but there’s only enough for me.
