Greetings. Hope you enjoy reading Pencilstorm as much as we enjoy putting it together. We have been running live now for close to a month and are truly humbled at how many people have been checking in on our little endeavor. In addition to providing you with another option to kill time at work or in the car, we also hope to step out of the basement every once and a while and do actual real-life, flesh-and-blood, human-type stuff by hosting events. Or put another way, as much fun as it is to bash Jeff Hassler reviews on Facebook, wouldn't it be so much cooler to tell him in person that Bon Jovi isn't better than the Stones?
With that thought in mind, between our one-month anniversary and MLB Opening Day, we thought it was time for a celebration. So please join us Monday, April 1, at the legendary Treebar to watch the Cincinnati Reds versus the L.A. Angels. First pitch at 4 p.m. and specials on PBR and Four String Brew the entire game. CD1025 jock/Pencilstorm baseball writer Brain Phillips and myself will be there to judge your fantasy roster. If we approve, we will buy you a beer or at least pass you the peanut bowl.
Haven't you spent enough time staring at a lifeless computer? Why not spend some time staring at cable TV? It's time to step out and talk to actual earthlings. You can do this! Don't be a pussy (talking to you Hassler; It's Opening Day and I'm pretty sure you aren't going to have an Easter hangover), stop by and enjoy some suds with the Pencilstorm crew and watch the Reds win the first of 94 victories on their way to an appearance in the N.L. Championship series. — Colin
