Today's Top 5

1. Jonathan Sanchez' amazing motherfucking unbelievable no-hitter

So improbable. You know how amazing this is? It's like if you were born in 1982 in Puerto Rico and went to Ohio Dominican University in Columbus and pitched four no-hitters there and then got drafted in 2004 by the Giants and eventually made the club and looked pretty good and then fucked up and got demoted down to the bullpen but then Randy Johnson got hurt and so you got to pitch and you just happened to pull a fucking no-hitter out of the bag. If all that happened, that would be like what happened to Jonathan Sanchez on Friday night.

2. I'm wearing an "I Survived Ikea on a Sunday" t-shirt.

Oh, Billy bookcase. You're worth it.

Sadly as it you might have secretly suspected, Ikea is evil like Wal-Mart. Fuck, can't anything be guilt-free these days?

3. Drinking on Sunday

Underrated.

4. Steaks on the grill

Shout out to my boys at Drewes Bros. for the top-notch flank and hangar steak. 4-6 minutes a side, perfect.

5. Treasure Island lineup announced

We've got the Flaming Lips, Decemberists, Beirut, Grizzly Bear, Yo La Tengo, The Walkmen, Bob Mould, and others. Not bad, but probably not as good as last year (Vampire Weekend! Okkervil River! Spiritualized! Fleet Foxes!). The more electronica day looks pretty good, too, but I'm not going to that, which suck because I'll miss The Streets but whatever. Shit's expensive.

Drewes rocks. I love their new extended hours - 8 PM on Fri and Sat, makes grillcrastination all that much easier. (They still haven't updated the website though...)

And don't forget:

"you just happened to pull a fucking no-hitter out of the bag on the night your dad flew in from Puerto Rico to see you pitch in the majors the first time..."

Oh, man, you're right. I totally forgot about the father-seeing-him-for-the-first-time angle.

You'd have to be all "Now Dad, this doesn't happen EVERY time."
