    Button Bay in a Peterson 80s. Tasty. Need to make a note and stock some more of this back east as well. Keeping an eye on the tornado warnings just east of my place by the rocks. 25C(77F)H55%

    Now there is a post I could not "like". My teams are the O's, the Pirates, and the Nats (in that order). Today was not a good baseball day. Oh well, at least the Nats won, and I was too busy to watch and see the other two lose.

    Anyway, I'm about to head out on the balcony again with some ice coffee (I'm going to need the caffeine if I'm going to finish my project), some Stonehaven (or maybe I should do an American tobacco in honor of the 4th, maybe McClelland Honeydew or H&H Anni Kake), and a pipe to be determined. Again, my first thought was a Ben Wade or a Sav, but in honor of the 4th I should do a good old American brand...either a Kaywoodie, Dr. Grabow, or a MM.

    Since you're an O's and Pirates fan, you might like knowing I once interviewed Jim Palmer on the radio. He was a funny and gracious guy. I asked him about pitching to Roberto Clemente (who was my childhood hero), and Palmer started talking about the homer Roberto hit off of him in the 1971 World Series. "I fooled him with the pitch and he hit it to the opposite field off his front foot. I still can't believe he did that. Nobody does that. He hit it off his front foot." Of course, he meant that Clemente didn't stay back on the pitch and hit the ball with his weight distributed differently than home run hitters normally do.

    This isn't the home run I mentioned, but you can see what Palmer was talking about here:

    I turn 43 in a couple weeks. Jim Palmer was one of my childhood heroes. Actually, so was Roberto Clemente but I was too young at the time to remember seeing him play. Since I don't have a name that really translates into Spanish, when I took Spanish in high school I got to choose what I'd be called in class and I chose Roberto as a tribute to Clemente. I also have 4 or 5 of his baseball cards. Big fan. Major tragedy when he died in that plane crash.

    I'm pretty much trying to stay with an American theme today - so it's been MacC 5100 in the black rock cob, Kansas City (thanks, Rekamepip!) in the Tom Howard pot dog, and now Carter Hall in a Missouri Meerschaum bent Legend. Can't get much more American than that!

    Now to go out for a long walk in this nice little rain that we're finally having in Nashville.

    The day Roberto died was one of the worst days of my life. It's still an emotional thing for me. I can't tell you what it was like to sit in the right field stands just to be near him and watch him play. Neil Walker, the current second baseman for the Bucs, recently told the story of how his father (Tom), who was a good friend of Roberto's, wanted to go with him on the plane. Roberto refused to let him go because he wasn't sure it was safe, thereby unknowingly saving Tom Walker's life.

    In honor of the Great One, I'm smoking Great Outdoors in a 1979 medium bend etch relief meerschaum lined TinderBox Arabesque.

    It's been resting in the jar for 5 months. I don't really know what's in there anymore...scraps of everything I"ve smoked. But I'll say this, I could taste it. Not bad. I'll keep feeding the compost jar, it's starting to get interesting.

    Don't know how Clemente did it really. Nearly defies physics except he keeps his hands back for so long that sufficient power can be generated in spite of where his weight is. Amazing. And Jim Palmer was one of my favorites too.

    Now it's ERR in a Kaywoodie Handmade billiard.
