Today's show was going to be short, but then I got to rambling and well, you'll hear the rest. We covered anniversary parties, favorite moms, fan mail, and a bunch more. Let's get to it!

Pat rambles on a busy weekend (5:08), goes all in on our favorite TV moms (13:21), and shares some of the latest video games (29:55). Plus a tune from Remember Sports (37:11), a little baseball news (40:54), some fan mail (48:23), and more!
I did it! Well, almost did it. This is the first episode recorded in my basement/garage studio, and I feel good about how it sounded. It was super hot, but that is easily fixed. And I know it will sound better once I get the panels up, and that it will look better once I clean the cube walls and add some artwork. It's a process, but I know it'll be great once it's done!
I learned a few things: I am horrendously out of shape. I am not good at cornhole (undefeated, though!). You can't go wrong with pulled pork. And finally, parties in the park are wonderful. Thanks for having me, Tom and Jen!
Favorite TV moms
This was a big one. And I realize that I did not pick a favorite, but it's my show so I get to do that. I don't know why murdering for your children makes you a good TV mom, but it seemed like a good barometer. (Lorelai Gilmore would also definitely murder someone for Rory, by the way. But would Danny Tanner?)
I know the transition from Linda's singing was subdued, but during most breaks I tend to cough a whole lot. My bad. Also I didn't use the version with the music because I think the setup of Tina asking about the song makes it funnier. Anywho, there are a bunch of games here that I hope to play. I may check out one of those racing games, but I think I'm most looking forward to the shadow puppet sword-fighting. Who lives nearby and has a PS4?
Thanks so much to our friends for their sweet tune! You can get it here, and check out their live performance album on bandcamp! Now how long do I need to wait before playing another? Because I should really have them on the show at some point.
Not much in the way of a league update, but the Phillies might be back on track thanks to some bamboo! They swept the Mets (of course they lost the day I recorded) after being trash for the previous week - a good sign heading into the break maybe! Also a note to fans: stop running onto the field. And while we're here: stop reaching over the fence to grab home runs.
I hope we all learned that Pat doesn't do research, which leads to half-assed answers to fan mail. I don't know why baseball is weird, but I do know that if you pester someone enough, he will cave and go along with your poor attempt at humor. Everybody [hits] wins!
Favorite TV dads, a patpeeve on the portapotty, and I don't know what else. Toss me some suggestions, pals!
And that's that, friends! I'm off to try to do DDP Yoga for the 4th time this week, so let's hope I don't fall over!
Until next time, don't do anything I wouldn't do!
Crap open a cold one!
