Butch and Daniel record a pleasantly long Uncast without the help of our beautiful hostess, Victoria. We start off with a bit of baseball as the Padres win their 2nd game of the season and cackle with glee as the Red Sox and Yankees take it 19 innings. We recount Butch’s Unniversary experience and the glory that is our new screen door.
Beer of the Week takes a personal turn as we drink a special beer by a special brewery for a personal cause. Toolbox Brewing made a delicious beer for Beer to the Rescue to raise funds for the Lupus Foundation of Southern California. You all know what this means to us. A special shout out to Brandon Hernandez for creating the organization, to Hollaine Hopkins for running LFSC and of course Spencer and Amanda at Toolbox for making this a truly special moment for me and the show. Rhian love, we miss you dearly, and our lives are better because your heart touched ours and your spirit still dances with ours.
Oh and just for you love, they’ve opened an authentic poutine and Montreal-style bagel shop in San Diego. It’s 3-4 years later than we’d hoped but it’s here and it’s delicious. Hat tip to the folks at Mess Royale in Hillcrest. Go check them out, if you’re in the area.
Now back to sports. Baseball season has started and Daniel is trying to predict shit again. The NHL and NBA playoffs are set to start soon, so we have that going for us, which is nice. Could we have an all Canada Stanley Cup Finals? Could we have 3 teams from the Eastern Conference make the NBA playoffs with a losing record? Time will already be telling by the time this is released.
While we get into Darren Sharper’s sentencing and pause for beer #2, the marathon double-game within a game that was the Red Sox and Yankees, finally comes to a merciful end. That brings us to beer #2 and this Four Seasons is not bad but it’s also not Frankie and the boys.
Last but not least, we “Ask A Black” with a fairly deep question…so deep…you know how it goes.
