Delino and Sax's Big Day Out

In order to protect the wartime succession of SoSG, we Sons tend to stay in undisclosed locations far away from one another (despite some of the Sons being relatives and friends for over three decades). But in a rare summit of SoSGers, myself and Mr. Sax spent part of the afternoon in close (but not too close) proximity.

Before the BBQ, red wine, and DeDog Delino getting mouthy with Son of Sax, we found ourselves waiting for my low-end luxury car at an anonymous high-end dealership. (If they want to give us some cash, I'll give their name).

While enjoying the dealership's cappuccino machine and putting green, we philosophized on everything from our zero percent shock that Big Papi juiced, the genius of the Mets using a 2-for-18 batter as a pinch hitter, and our deep-seeded belief that Manny would wait sixteen years to try the 'roids only one single time (poor, poor, unlucky Manny). Fortunately, our whereabouts stayed on the down low, and we are now safely tucked away in our different area codes. Until the next screening of The Room.

P.S. - Lasorda's location and identity is available upon request.

Apparently my past references about Lasorda were met with "odd" responses my the SONS. So...why don't you "out" him already.

And, did you get the Infinity or the Lexus?

OK, someone explain "The Room" to me. Satire, right?

And, who's Lasorda?

"The Room" is a real movie. A really awful movie. It makes "Plan 9 From Outer Space" look like Citizen Kane.

The "Room" is a modern day Rocky Horror Movie. It's a cult classic that has been dubbed the best Worst movie of all time.

I owe my experience seeing The Room to Delino, about five years ago. Delino may not be the most discriminating purveyor of convenience store fare on a roadtrip, but he is one of the most avant-garde gentlemen when it comes to high culture.

For the record Sax, I did not get the beef lips that time. Though the warm nuts was all me.

THE ROOM - I might have to just do a special column on this - to transform all you SoSG-maniacs into part of the Room Nation.

Okay, I tried to protect him enough.
Lasorda is really...
Tommy Lasorda.
