And of course the evening would not be complete without a live donkey sex show featuring Bandito the Human Tripod and Bob the Burro.

Probably will have to skip the game, but I will try to get to McSorleys by 3 to have one(or two with you guys). How long do you plan on staying there?
One at McSorley's? That's like having one Lay's potato chip. We plan on meeting at three. It looks like it'll be me, Luke, and Aggs. Then we are meeting Birt at the ballpark. We'll be there at least an hour I imagine.

Well that was fun. Beers at McSorley's and dba with Luke, Aggs, and Niel. Then to the ballpark to meet up with Birt. Great win. Great company. Best part of all is I don't have to work tomorrow.
All too briefly,
Splendid to see you again, Niel,
Birt, a fixed point in an uncertain universe, so many thanks.
NL, the sight of those deep, sad eyes of our beloved Nick are worth any outcome, the 4 and oh is just gravy.
LKB, just a splendid human being in any hemisphere, any world - what more can I add? I just wish I could hold him hostage here. Luke - anything you need while you're here - just ask.

1. The name is spelled N-i-e-u-w-e-n-h-u-i-s.
2. Evelyn Nesbit's jealous lover who killed the great architect Stanford White (of the famous firm McKim, Mead and & White) was Harry K. Thaw.
3. Australia is not really another name for Staten Island.
4. It is possible to win a game in which your starting pitcher lasts less than six innings and both allows ten (or more) hits and racks up eight (or more) strikeouts. Until last night's game, no team in NL history had ever won after that sort of appearance by its starter, at least going back to 1918 (which is as far as the baseball-reference database goes). And given how baseball was played before 1918, it is extermely unlikely there was such a game before 1918 either.
5. THR participants are amusing enough that a guy in the row in front of us turned around at one point and indicated that our running commentary was "the best". He seemed neither deranged nor dangerously drunk. Although soon after, he and his companion departed the premises.
6. Daniel Murphy may not look as smooth in the infield as Ruben Tejada but he can dive for a ground liner as well as anybody.
7. Ruben Tejada is quickly becoming a fan and THR favorite, not replacing Jose R. in our hearts but with a charisma of his own.
8. The suitcase of an Australian family that is traveling for multiple weeks in the US will not fit between the sides of the turnstiles in New York City subway stations.
9. Neither Pie Face meat pies nor Rupert Murdoch are universally beloved in their native Australia.
10. The crowds at Citi are not going to be patient with Jason Bay this season.
11. You can get to your seats down the right field line faster through the Rotunda entrance than through the right field gate indicated on the tickets.
12. David Wright appears, says Aggs, to have a revised batting stance that is proving effective so far (though a look at his first four games in earlier seasons suggests he is hot in the first few games every year, though not quite this hot).
13. The Mets will be in first place in the NL East for at least a couple of more days.
14. THR outings, or mini-outings, continue to be highly entertaining and companionable. Thanks guys, and especially Luke for visiting!
