We’ll be live-chatting Game 5 tonight

Oct 24, 2011, 5:40 PM EDT


We’re experiencing the best World Series in a good nine years, so let’s make sure we all experience it together.  Tonight we’ll be doing the live chat thing, starting around game time.

Your master of ceremonies will be D.J. Short, who, truth be told, is better at this live chat business than the rest of us.  I’d chalk it up to his youth, but I recently discovered that D.J. is 67-years-old. Was a First Lieutenant in ‘Nam and everything. Owned a muffler shop for 26-years but retired when his son-in-law’s company went public. And you think you know people.

Anyway, suggested topics for this evening: the Cardinals; the Rangers; whether there’s a chance in Hell that “The Rum Diary” is going to be as good as I want it to be and as good as the previews make it seem; and the number of times that Chris Carpenter‘s friendship with Roy Halladay will be mentioned. We’d make it a drinking game, but that last one would cause 75% of our readership to suffer alcohol poisoning.

Be there or be quadrangular.

    I’m worried The Rum Diary is gonna end up being some second-rate Fear and Loathing remake.

      Fear and Loathing was atrocious.

    My liver has been toughen by the criticism of people with PhDs. It can take it.

    Dear HBT,

    Thank you for the Live Chat. And for the backstory on DJ.

    Your Friend,

      The legend of DJ is not complete however. We do not know what DJ stands for.
