I'm not actually here tonight. (Some would argue I'm never actually "here" at all.) Tonight is the opening evening of baseball at my beloved Nat Bailey Stadium.
I think it's my 27th season selling beer at that venue. Winewife is kinda tired of the whole deal, what with my advanced
Hello there, and welcome back to the Beat, the second-funniest Thursday (normally) running BattleBots review column! This becomes a special two-parter because I realized, "Holy shit, if I just do the re: MARS stream it's still a 3500 word post," Also it was 3 AM because I was finally actually
Welcome back to the Beat! We're back for realsies this time, not just a preview but actual honest to goodness fighting. And for this premiere we've got way too much work for me to do—it's so big we're going to split it into two parts. So let's just get to
IT'S HERE! IT'S FINALLY HERE! Yeah, we already had The Masters (and you know my thoughts about Augusta National), and the PGA Championship was definitely a lot of fun, but, now it's time for the greatest golf tournament of the year. It's the 119th edition of the United States Open

Yes, lizard people, we're covering the Copa América, the CONMEBOL South American lesser footy federation's championship, where 12 teams will square off to be the best in South America. Which is why I'm covering Japan today.

We've got an extra team! It came as a bit of shock when this small country off the coast of South America qualified as a sudden 13th team, but shows how much analysts know! I drew the straw, so I get to uncover the mysteries.

Hola morning people!
Let's start off here, I know nothing of Peruvian football or footballers.
What do I know about Peru? They make Pisco which is a fermented grape alcohol that makes a Pisco Sour and is bloody delicious. They have that, and cocaine. I imagine every Peruvian party to be Pisco,
