SHORT TIME, LOW ATTENDANCE, CHANGE OF VENUE, XMAS RULES!

  |   Philly Chapter   |   13 Comments

Hello All,

 

The Monday is back and with an Eagles loss and ND loss its really, really painful, but we need Monday to get back to Friday!

 

Well let’s have a look at the week that was, Friday night we had full attendance at the Clubhouse.  Now I had been in the Clubhouse earlier but had left for the night or so I thought. The Bride and I hit our hot tub for a bit then as we were floating around she looked at me and said, wanna go to the Clubhouse? I looked at her and said, sure twist my arm why don’t ya! Then it was out of the Hot Tub, cover on, shower and off to the Clubhouse. I’m really glad I headed back, it was one of those really fun Friday Nights, we had Dutch using the Hair of X and XA to make it look like his hair and take photos of it. Will that be on the site Dutch? Now I would be remiss if I did not mention a Judybox Incident that took place Friday Night. Now there is a rule at the Clubhouse specifically given to the team where every week we can get 10 bucks a day up to 20 bucks total for the Judybox from the Clubhouse owner. We had asked for this little perk being the amount of time, effort and money we expend at the Clubhouse. Well Friday night came and the Team Judybox cash was requested and we were told no Judybox money for it was given to a non-team member earlier in the day? What? (PUZZLED LOOKS ON SOME FACES) . Well this set off a bit of a firestorm with some bar maids and team members, there was a little anger about the money going to a non-team member. Personally I agree with the angst, this is a team perk, not a bar wide perk.  Well after a few barbs cooler heads prevailed and all went back to being right with the world and Friday night continued to be really fun.

 

So this Sunday was truly a different one, we did NOT have full attendance at the Clubhouse, heck we didn’t even go to the Clubhouse on Sunday. The only team members out when I was out were Dutch and I, all other members had other things to accomplish on Sunday. This is the first time in a long time where I did not see Eric on Sunday.  Being it was only Dutch and I we decided to change venue’s on Sunday go to E’s and look up our gal PAL Liza! The day started with an invite from Dutch to enter the Hallowed halls of the Furious Pub which was let me say a true honor. Once there as noted more in foody news below we had some Hot Dogs and beverages of choice then it was off to Clubhouse #2. At Clubhouse #2 we were greeted by the Liza smile and all was right with the world. Now not a lot of big moments yesterday being I had to leave by noon but we did have one item of note. I am a huge XMAS guy (SANTA PHOTO ON SITE IS MY SUN ROOM, IT LOOKS THAT WAY ALL YEAR ROUND, NO LIE) and have been telling all that I play XMAS tunes at home now even though it’s not Thanksgiving yet. Apparently Dutch disagrees with this philosophy and thinks no XMAS tunes till at least Thanksgiving. So we are sitting at Clubhouse #2 chatting it up with Liza when Dutch breaks conversation and says, “LIZA, LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION, WHEN IS IT OK TO PLAY XMAS TUNES”. Knowing Dutch, he surely thought Liza would say after Thanksgiving thus breaking my shoes, well NO! Liza quick as wink responds, NOW, I AM ALREADY PLAYING THEM”. Uh-Oh was written all over Dutch’s face, his plan backfired, Liza is a huge XMAS fan just like me and loves all things XMAS. Liza noted she had already bought gifts and decorations for the house. Well if you think I loved LIZA before this conversation, well you can only imagine how much more I love her now. Well I jumped out of my seat and hopped around doing a victory dance and basking in Dutch’s defeat and my pure victory. Well Dutch further sealed his doom by booing Liza and I for liking XMAS so much, this didn’t sit well with Liza then out of that cute little face Liza has came, “Dutch you’re a summer douche!” Yes, Liza said it, Dutch knew he was cooked and now Dutch can be known by Dutch, El Dutche’ or SD. So even though the time for me at Clubhouse #2 was short, it we well worth it!    So with Victory in hand and the clock striking noon I had to bid ado to my gal Liza and Pal Dutch or SD and take off to get my seat for the Eagles wrapping up a good day. Now I see X and XA showed up at E’s later with Dutch for a I was getting texts so Dutch was not lonely on Sunday.

 

 

ATTA BOY – The ATTA GIRL this week goes to the lady at 7-11 who hooked Dutch up with Hot Dogs. When Dutch went into 7-11 Sunday for some Dogs the shelf was empty, bummer no dogs right? NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND. The nice lady work at 7-11 asked Dutch what he needed, Dutch said Hot Dogs. Well we don’t have any she noted but said she could sell him the Dogs 7-11 cooks on their Grill. So with that she sold Dutch 4 dogs for 2 bucks, NICE! So for going above and beyond in Customer Service the nameless yet super awesome 7-11 worker gets the ATTA GIRL!  ATTA GIRL 7-11 WORKER.

 

COME ON MAN –   Well this week’s recipient of the Come On Man is the Clubhouse and giving away the Judybox money to non-members. That is a perk the team earns weekly, so for not getting Judybox money the Clubhouse gets COME ON MAN!

 

MUSIC NEWS – SEE ABOVE for the Music Issue but otherwise the tunes that did get on the Judybox Fri and Saturday were good, I also think Rolling Rock used his own cash again. Did anyone play the Chipmunks XMAS song?

 

FOODY NEWS – It was a double dose of Crab Legs for the bride, being at the Clubhouse Thursday and Saturday the bride did the Crab Leg special. I did some really good pizza. Also much to my surprise Hot Dogs were on the menu Sunday. Yes, upon my arrival at the Furious Pub Hot Dogs were being cooked up by Dutch. Now there were not just any Hot Dogs, these were the Hot Dogs cooked by 7-11 on their grill. On a sad note, Dutch had some really bad fried pickles this week, he gave them a double thumbs down.

 

PARTY NEWS – We are creeping ever closer to the 3rd annual XMAS party, keep an eye on all those catalogs coming in team. Need to decide where it will be held this year, Furious Pub Maybe?

 

DYK – (did you know)- No Brainer here but Tomorrow is Election Day, GO VOTE FOLKS

 

Well no late night texts again today, so I will ask, anyone Double Dip, or hang in there to see BECK-BECK (CALL ME)?

 

Ok then lads, I will once again be short time this week, Eagles at 1 PM again this coming Sunday, as noted its painful today being Monday but try to have a good week!

    2 $2.00 burgers, 2 hot dogs, plate a wings. XA and I tore it up!! I was able to change the clock in my car by telling it to change the time, it was the easiest it has ever been but that is an EXCELLENT question! That seat was mine fair and square 🙂 . Everybody wants you on Furious Radio soon! Good job messing with Tony’s phone yesterday! I asked more people about what day was correct to play Xmas music and THEY ALL said the day after Thanksgiving, Liza witnessed it so it is now 2 – 6 in favor of day after Thanksgiving :0

    I am gonna see if I can make it the entire week without stopping in the clubhouse :).

    I’ll keep everyone posted on the new logo (which has already been seen in snapchat, add us if you haven’t)

  • Frank | Nov 7, 2016 at 2:43 PM

    hmmm, out of the Clubhouse all week eh,, doubt I can match that

    Come On Dude, I only witnessed your loss so that is all that counts

    • Dutch | Nov 7, 2016 at 3:03 PM

      Hmmmm I guess we will find out. Look on the right underneath the pictures 🙂

  • Frank | Nov 7, 2016 at 5:07 PM

    I voted but one optiony was missing- ALL YEAR ROUND

  • S1N | Nov 7, 2016 at 6:18 PM

    How did you hear my voice? You are always welcome to do a show with me! We should plan it. Fight Thru It show?! Sounds like a plan.

    Wait, you were at the Pub and I didn’t get a Facetime? I am so jealous I couldn’t be there with you guys despite razzing Dutch about the Eagles failing. BTW My dad picked them for the pool this week so he was sad!

    Blog commercials are being worked on tonight!

    BTW…..Xmas = After Thanksgiving……no sooner!

  • Frank | Nov 8, 2016 at 5:31 AM

    I heard your voice at the Furious Pub while I was invited there Sunday.

    I feel bad for you Dad, we were not happy here in the City of Brotherly love!

    Can’t wait to hear the commercial, YEE-HA

  • Loppy | Nov 8, 2016 at 11:21 PM

    • Dutch | Nov 9, 2016 at 9:00 AM

      Aww c’mon Loppy! That’s not enough time to soak it up. Although I am very happy with it being over absolutely no later than New Years Eve. 🙂 Frank is probably sad now cause we are talking about it already being over 🙁

  • Frank | Nov 9, 2016 at 9:00 AM

    BOO!!!!

  • X | Nov 13, 2016 at 1:56 PM

    The only happy moments at work on Sundays are FaceTime with Frank! I witnessed the xmas music Q&A Frank- you lose!

    High fives over frank! CHIPS AND A PICKLE!!!

  • Eric | Nov 13, 2016 at 7:35 PM

    It was a strange day not seeing you guys last Sunday, but this week made up for it. Frank does love Christmas.
