        At least you aren’t drinking alone…

        It is still early, plenty if time to drink alone after the game.

        If you find yourself drinking with the Borg, you might need to reconsider your priorities.

    His batting line is a lot like Victor’s, it’s kinda low because it took them a month or so to get things going but have been on fire ever since.
