I'm not so sure you'll be sleeping at 3 am GMT. I found a converter. 03:00 am GMT Saturday is 7 pm Friday evening in my time zone. In which case I'll probably be watching the World Series.

Hey Griff...you ever heard about the "sour toe" cocktail they used to serve at the Red Dawg Saloon? Seems as though some old prospector had got frostbite on his toes and they had to cut em off...this back in the 1800's I think. Anyway they saved his big toe and put it in a jar of formaldahyde and anybody order the sour toe cocktail..they pull the toe out of the jar and throw it in a shot glass and dump whiskey on it...and you drink the whiskey and leave the toe..then they put the toe back in the jar till somebody order the drink again. Well some idiot accidentally swallowed the toe..so they had to take that drink off the menu. That come out on Paul Harvey several years back. Bound to be true huh?

Some Friday nights that would be the case.

BW, you have your facts wrong. Steve's right. It's at the Downtown Hotel, Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada. A nicer little town you'll never find.

Pretty close to 50-50, maybe a slight edge to the Tigers since the AL Mariners are the closest team. Assuming there is a game on Saturday, we'll definately be rooting for the Tigers. Charlie, my huntin' and fishin' buddy, is coming over to watch the game. His dad played for the Tigers in the '45 World Series.

His last name was Hostetler. I think his sole claim to fame was that he stumbled, fell and got put out between third and home. The real bummer is that years ago someone stole my friend's dad's World Series ring.
