Stop By The Saloon

May 30, 2020

The Saloon continues to provide Irish Sports Daily members with a place to talk about anything and everything, well except football and politics.

jt4dirish started a thread earlier this week that was probably long overdue, asking fellow ISD readers their liquor of choice while offering (ahem) plenty of suggestions of his own.

While The Saloon tends to be more of a jovial atmosphere, oc10spray let everybody know about any absolutely disgusting story about a photography company not only failing to return a deposit to a man whose fiancé passed away before the wedding, but going on to mock his suffering. The company went so far as to hoping the would-be client was sobbing and crying on the day he was scheduled to be married.

A truly unbelievable story.

With Major League Baseball seriously considering mixing American and National League teams for an abbreviated 2020 season, it seemed like a good time to revive the DH/No-DH Debate.

No surprise the arguments ranged from not wanting to watch a pitcher who bats .158 hit to the inherently more interesting decisions managers in the National League need to make regarding double-switches and when to pull their pitcher from the game. The latter is obviously the correct argument, but those non-traditionalists certainly put up a good fight.

Allen Iverson summed up his reasoning for not lifting weights during his playing career the way only Allen Iverson can. Of course, this thread evolved into stories regarding Iverson’s athletic ability in other sports.

The comedy world lost a pair of legends this month with the passing of Fred Willard, who was beloved in various mockumentaries, and Jerry Stiller, who is best known as either Frank Costanza or Arthur Spooner depending on who you ask.

I’m not sure when or if I’ll ever have the time to watch a two-plus-hour interview on YouTube, but when or if I do, it’ll be the one Mike recommended on Sammy The Bull Gravano, which kicked off a discussion on mafia media culture.

There were a great deal of quality responses to one subscriber looking for advice on potentially purchasing a lake cottage somewhere near Michiana.

Stop by The Saloon and join in the discussion.
