    What’s he “bereaving”… the loss of being able to throw a baseball?? Baaazzing!

    But, with not being a total jerk… hope the best for him and his fam in dealing with whomever was lost.

    Aaron, Frisaro’s writeup says it’s a death on his wife’s side. But, oddly, it seems to be written in the future—the time stamp is 739pm tonight.
