Our sports department here at the Register does a great job of telling readers about how the New Haven County Cutters are performing. Right now, the team is the playoffs, and so far, so good.
Chip Malafronte recapped the action last night, with the Cutters pulling out a game filled with offense against the Brockton Rox and taking a one-game lead in the best-of-five series.
But there's something missing from 99 percent of previews for tonight's game.
Yes, like a gift from the gods, the Cutters made the playoffs and have a home game on a Thursday. You know what that means? That's right; it's THIRSTY THURSDAY tonight.
Go support your local pro baseball team and enjoy $1 beers. It's almost too good to be true: cheap beer and baseball.
And you know what else? It's a beautiful day outside. And you'll also probably be home in time to catch most of the NFL opener, or James Blake losing to Roger Federer (although we can hope otherwise).
I can't wait. I thought Thirsty Thursdays were over for the year. See you at Yale Field, and go Cutters.
