For the record, this is the SECOND TO LAST EPISODE of the Brotherly Love series. Sniff.
Remember my plan to rid the world of misdirected emails? Every time I get something good sent to me by mistake, I’m sharing it. Right here. In a segment called Check Your Email, Dude (CYED).

[ Brotherly Love – Ep. 9 ]
They let us back into the ball park with our own personal set of ground rules – the biggest one being not to rip off Scooter’s attire anymore. And the night went almost without incident until we managed to provoke the removal of three mothers in their 40’s along with three kids. I was starting to get a headache because one of them was talking about ten decibels above the crowd, and really annoying Buddy and me. After a little thought, I had a solution in mind so, after cluing Billy in, I put my plan in motion. First, I turned to the woman and told her that her kid kicked me three times and asked her to please stop him. And I said it loud enough so the people around could hear me. Then, I leaned over and said very quietly that if she would get the beer bottle out of her mouth for a few minutes she could do a better job of controlling her kid. With that, she yelled out a few F words then threw her full beer bottle at me. Now, normally, I would have caught it and had a free beer on her but this wasn’t in the plan so I side stepped it. Guess who got hit with the beer? My good friend, Scooter, of course, who looked up at me and I pointed to the lady behind me who was screaming at the top of her lungs by now. The police came from across the street in two minutes flat and removed all six of them. I told Buddy that we killed two birds with one stone here: (1) first, we enjoyed the rest of the game without headaches and (2) second, we became friends with Scooter again. And we learned that a game can be enjoyed even when you are losing 16-0. It is pool time. Talk to you soon.
