CC: Pretty Pyewping Beautiful Patch

A lot has happened since I made my last appearance. The school year finally ended, with Tuesday being the last day with students and Wednesday being "Pack Up your Stuff Day." The Milwaukee Brewers have completed a wild sweep of the Cleveland Indians, a series that included a 14-12 game, Trevor Hoffman blowing a 4-run lead, and an 11-inning thriller. And most importantly, my wife and our two best friends steamrolled the competition in our first ever attempt at Pub Trivia, earning us a $40 gift card at Firefly, a nearby eatery and drinkery. My wife nailed the final and decisive question by correctly identifying "With a Little Help From My Friends" as the only song on Sgt. Pepper in which Ringo sang the lead vocals. I, on the other hand, am sort of embarrassed that I was the one who, through a painstaking rifling through the file cabinets of my brain, could name the monkey that Ross owned on the sitcom Friends, when some people on my team (ahem) own the entire series on DVD. Great job, Team Pyewp. (And my goodness, wasn't it fun to hear the hostess call that name several times, oblivious to its true meaning. The term is on the verge of celebrating its first birthday, so be sure to spread the pyewp in your posts this week.)

Today I have a CC Sabathia patch card to show you. It is nice.

Leaving for Minnesota tomorrow, but I'll try to post-date some posts so I don't leave anyone hanging in the coming week. Spread the pyewp.

The fact that you called your trivia team Team Pyewp bumped that patch card down to the second most entertaining part of your post.
