have YOU ever had a mustache sandwich?

For the Mustache Tweak of the Day, click here.

(You may have to watch a brief 30 second commercial, but it's worth it. His mustache is groomed quite well)

Lately Maxwell has been professing the "funky fresh" tunes of his Lincoln. Well, (not that we're going to have a funk-off) but the Neon is capable of thumpin' as well. I prefer a more..."silky smoothe" adventure whilst cruisin' in style. Playlist:

"Sweet Talkin' Woman"-ELO
"Peg"-Steely Dan
"Ebony Eyes"-Stevie Wonder
"Multiply"-Jamie Lidell
"Make Me Smile"-Chicago

I recommend listening to all of these while you hit the road. It will be well worth it!

Tonight I worked. As a telemarketer, we sit at a computer, a name pops up on the screen, and we have to immediately say "Hello, may I please speak to Mr/Mrs ______?" Obviously, it's a bit more polite to ask for Mr./Mrs., but occasionally you have a name that you just can't pronounce. So you are forced to ask their first name. (very rude) I called a lady who was quite Japanese. I didn't know how to pronounce her first name, and had NO idea on her last name. It was something to the effect of "Shikakorganawa." So I decided to say "May I please speak to Ms. (last name)?" Instead of saying "Shikakorganawa" I just said it REALLY fast and it sounded close to "Shee-can-oh-wa." The lady was like, "Wow! That's the first time anyone has pronounced my name correct!" What a clever, CLEVER mustache!

I've been hearing rumors that Pelk is back in the hospital. Can anyone back this up? I must know!

Sam, do you work at Grizzly's?

I saw this on SC and it's the best thing I have ever seen relating to baseball

No - why would you think I work at Grizzlies?

My step-dads name is Yde. It's pronounced like 'wide'. Every telemarketer who has ever called has asked for him by his first name.

Hmm... I think you can officially categorize that as the longest, most absurd tirade in the history of baseball.

And no Kubas, Pelk is not at the hospital, but rather soaking it up in the morgue.
