Wednesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

September 24, 2008 | Glenn Clark

We have a new internet service provider here at WNST; so this morning was a bit of a struggle for me to get Crabs and Beer together. There are a few things missing, so I apologize for that.

PLEASE join us tonight. I am honestly conflicted, as I want DESPERATELY to root for the Orioles, but part of me wouldn’t mind if the Rays clinched the AL East tonight. I’m just so sick of seeing the Red Sox and Yankees celebrate. The Rays are a good story. If the Orioles are ever relevant again, I will hate the Rays then; but for now, my hate is directed to Boston and New York.

We will be at the Wharf Rat at 5:30, and then we will be sitting in Section 308. And don’t forget to get on the Steelers bus either.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say…..
