Let The BarGames Begin

Tonight at 8 PM, "The BarGame Games" will begin at a bar called Finnerty's. You see, Finnerty's is a bar on the same block as Professor Thom's on Second Avenue between E. 13th and 14th Streets in the Village. They opened around the same time as Thom's did, and there's been a friendly rivalry between the two saloons. Finnerty's is run by a couple of Yankee fans, while Thom's is the haven for and run by Red Sox fans in New York.

So, in the spirit of the rivalry between Cheers and Gary's Olde Towne Tavern from the classic TV series, "Cheers," there will be a series of five "bargame" competitions between the two establishments to determine Second Avenue Between Thirteenth and Fourteenth superiority.

Tonight's first competition will be darts, over at Finnerty's. It will be a best two out of three, with Greg and Mike of Professor Thom's representing the Good Guys. (God, I sound like Ken Harrelson!) Over the next few weeks, the competition will include video golf, poker, billiards, and MegaTouch.

It should be a lot of fun. Professor Thom's will be defending the honor of Red Sox Nation in New York. Let the BarGames begin!

You guys should call that place "Gary's" from now on. Man, the thought of that Gary still makes my skin crawl. And it was a TV show! I'll never forgive him for what he did to Sammy.

Hey, I never thought of this until right now, but wouldn't the post-2004 season have been a great time for a Cheers reunion show? They could've had everyone come back for the World Series or something, and then have had Lucchino come in and deliver a ring to MayDay Malone. Wait a minute, why didn't Werner think of this?? He could've made it happen, too! Next time I see Werner at Fenway, I'm gonna bring this up.

Stay on him, Jere! That would have been a great idea...
