We hear there will be no softball game at SPX this year. We don’t know why this is. Several people have given us vague explanations, but we haven’t bothered to track down the searing inside story. We also hear that a trip to a pool hall is being proposed as the alternate Sunday afternoon activity.
Now, we like pool, but unless Hurricane Flloyd is hitting, we’d rather stand around outside on a raw October day drinking Heineken and blabbing than be inside playing pool. Liz Baille sent us this communique with an alternative to pool, and frankly we’re not sure what’s up, so we’re just throwing it out there.
If you are going to SPX this year, you’ve probably heard there will be no softball game on the Sunday after the show. Instead, billiards have been proposed.
I hate billiards.
So, my good buddy MK Reed suggested an impromptu SOCCER game on the Sunday after the show instead! Nothing formal, just a bunch of palefaced, out-of-shape cartoonists kicking the ol’ soccer ball around in some kind of local green area. She suggests we all meet in the hotel parking lot on Sunday and those who took buses to SPX can get rides with us nice folks who either own or are renting cars (to the game, of course).
This is, of course, only if the weather turns out to be something other than rain.
We’ll be in the hotel parking lot to leave around 12:30pm on Sunday for anyone who wants to join us.
