Anyone else ever prepare for a party by studying?
Years ago I was at a party and someone introduced me to some guy named Kevin McClatchy. Seemed like a nice enough dude. He brought up the topic of Pirate baseball and I made a funny comment about how badly they sucked. Everyone stopped talking. Turns out McClatchy was the team owner. :eek:
I was embarrassed, but he laughed at my gaffe.
Fast forward to tonight. I’m going to a friend’s surprise 60th BD party. He is a good friend who, coincidentally, played for the Steelers during the 70s/80s. He has 4 Super Bowl rings and is in the football hall of fame.
Because of his past, there will be a few “sports legends” at the party. Supposedly there will be hall of famers from football, baseball, and hockey. Me, I watch a game here and there especially if the local team is having a good season.
So here I am studying local sports history. Hope I do not screw things up too badly tonight! I can’t name any names right now, but I can after the party if anyone is interested/curious.
