#393 (Best Of): Sliding Into a Standup Double (Again)

#393 (Best Of): Sliding Into a Standup Double (Again)

We were going to do a new show this week, but the 6 inches of April snow pretty much sent Ann over the edge. Instead, we’re pretending it’s a normal spring, where we don’t have to shovel out the stadium before the game. This episode originally aired on July 16th, 2016.

Here’s the original write-up:

Ah, summer. The kids are out of school, the pool is ready to go, and hot, hazy days are followed by warm, breezy evenings.  What could be better than a beer, a brat and a ballgame? Mike and Ann are ready to roll back the roof at Safeco Field and talk a little baseball. TBTL baseball, that is. We’ve compiled a collection of clips that involve going to the game, getting on the field, hanging out with Ten friends, and one unfortunate story that probably still has Andrew waking up in a cold sweat.  We promise you don’t need to be a sports fan to enjoy this one.

Nobody’s attended more TBTL events than Christy (except Luke, I guess), so she and Ann get together for this quick minisode to recap the TBTL Night at the Mariners event from September. Hey, it’s our podcast, so we can post an episode whenever we want! It was an evening full of fun moments, including a hilarious Hanna Brooks Olsen, Luke’s fly dance moves, the pursuit of one of Ellie’s life ambitions, and way too much thinking about Andrew’s tongue. Plus, a kid bathroom emergency, fond(?) remembrances of The Mummy’s antics on the Tour de Terrible, and a discussion of the “living hell” that is curriculum night.

Episode #126 (Recap): The Dinner Party Upload

Put down the welding goggles, because (stuff’s) about to get real. Mike, Meredith and Bobby (filling in for an ailing Christy) set the AC to 72 and tuck into a Bloody Mary for breakfast, a Bloody Mary for lunch and a sensible Heggie’s Pizza dinner in your latest TBTL Week in Review. Plus, a Mike health update, an Eddie genetic testing pupdate, and a take on Andrew’s fussy eating so hot the kids (and Stu) would call it “fire.”

Episode #120: This Is Your Captain Speaking

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome aboard LRB Airlines Flight 120, with service to Seattle and continuing on to Chicago.  We have a few safety announcements we’d like to make before departure. First, please ensure that any electronic devices for combating moles are turned off, as they cannot be used in flight. Second, ghost apps are not reliable indicators of spectral activity, so don’t believe the four-star ratings. Third, there will be a surprising amount of MN Twins nostalgia on this flight; remember to drink your cheeseburger-topped Bloody Marys and gently guide your opponent off the bag. Finally, no matter how misty-colored your memories are, those Clark and Lewis radio spots probably aren’t as good as you remember. Please enjoy the trip – it’s our pleasure to serve you!
