In Which I Purchase and Wear The Greatest Shirt of All Time

It's no secret that the Mighty Ducks Trilogy have had a great impact on me. So when my buddy Singer linked me to this site I freaked out. Originally they only had 5 or 6 Ducks shirts, which I fantasized about buying. Then, I checked a week or so ago and saw the ultimate:

Gunnar fucking Stahl, the greatest Junior Goodwill Games Hockey player of all time. I love Gunnar. My fantasy baseball team name was The Gunnar Stahl Experience one year, it's been a trivia team name as well. The guy's a legend. He dominated, showed deference when getting stoned by Julie "The Cat" Gaffney, pwned Wolf "The Dentist" Stansson, secretly moved to America under the name of Scooter, matriculated into Eden Hall, won the position of Varsity goaltender, then hooked up with Julie "The Cat" Gaffney.

Naturally, I bought the shirt and had to wear it out.

Originally we went to this plush douchefest in some snazzy lounge and I was woefully underdressed and totally uncomfortable drinking $10 G&T's in a tshirt. Things got better as we headed to an epic Irish bar with damn good Guinness and normal clientele. I was home.

As I was getting drinks, a guy came up to me and freaked out about the shirt. He said he originally wondered if Stahl was my last name or something, then saw the Iceland logo and knew. Throughout the night as we all progressively got drunker he kept calling me "GUNNAR!" and towards the end, Katelyn remembered he would follow me to the jukebox and suggest that I play Icelandic music. I was naturally flummoxed.

Moral of the story: Stahl jersey rules. I cant wait to buy this new Adam Banks one they just made.

God, I'm a fucking loser.

According to Google, I am an Expert in all things "Phish + Fenway"

Ask me anything you need to know, phriends.

Sample Q & A:

Q - Will this show happen?
A - Maybe

Q - What's the holdup with the announcement?
A - Didn't want to steal the thunder of Summer Tour '09. It's not happening and this is all made up.

Q - What could go wrong?
A - A lot... Phish fans are the worst (and I'm one of them) and they could trash Fenway, destroy the neighborhood, leave babies in the dugout, dose Terry Francona's chewing tobacco in addition to no less than 12 other devious acts that would cause Red Sox team members to fail P.E.D. tests.

Q - What could go right?
A - Phish at fucking FENWAY PARK! That's insane. They are a band that would understand the magnitude of the situation and run with it. Yes, they are from Vermont, but Boston is their home city. Plus it would allow everyone seeing DMB that same weekend to enjoy a real band.

Phish @ Fenway

Rumors are everywhere. Message Boards, Twitter, Hippie Communes (maybe). Phish @ Fenway on May 31. DMB will play 5/29 & 30.

Boston Globe printed something on this, mostly on the rumors, today:

Phish at Fenway?
Could Phish be gigging at Fenway? Neither Live Nation nor the band's rep would confirm it yesterday, but there's a lot of online chatter about a possible Phish fest at Fenway. The band, which is about to head out on the road for the first time in five years, is slated to kick things off at Jones Beach in New York June 4 and 5, followed by a show at the Comcast Center June 6. But we're hearing that Trey Anastasio, et al., may be bound for Boston May 31, which is the night after the Dave Matthews Band wraps up its two-night stand at the ballpark

I've also heard that the Fenway neighborhood signed off on the concert yesterday at 3pm.

Sounds a bit too good to be true, but info's coming in from so many angles, that I'd like to believe it's happening, massive fall apart not withstanding.

In summation:

Although I Much Prefer Macroblogging...

I have joined the microblogging world of Twitter. I have 'tweeted' the last B's game I attended, and the Barrister's Ball feat. Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Enjoy.
