Wonder's Pub

Bars, wine, beer, cocktails, drunken escapades

Some sideline reporter for FOX interviewed Stephen King in his seat during one of these games, and the reporter commented that King had a book... ah, fuck it, I'll let this guy tell the story:

During tonight's Red Sox-Indians match-up Fox was flashing to Stephen King reading this book between innings earlier in the broadcast. Then they send Chris Myers down to interview him, and ask him about the book.

King says that he reads around 18 pages over the course of a game with the breaks and such. And then drops this gem: "And now that Fox is doing the games, you can do 27 pages because commercial breaks are longer."

Even if its one TV on CC I could handle it (there is live music scheduled). These games on Fox tend to be marathons, so if I stay at home to watch, I may never make it over.

Thanks!

You should ask the band to play Sweet Caroline after the top of the eight inning.

Probably irrelevant at this point, but Players Sports Bar is across the street from Wonders and The Ideal.

No probs, b-j.
Players is across the street act like a sports bar and stuff. But what interests me is the Best Burger phenom.
You know how certain places have a sign declaring such?
BEST BURGER IN TOWN!
Wrong forum section, I know, but is it?

Dammit, you're right. Players, not Pitchers. I'm all about being incorrect in this thread...
