didn't Pedro call Jorge Soler "ding dong Johnson" during the 2015 NLDS?

oh wait, he is still saying it? I thought the clip was from 2015 which is why I was wondering how he came across it now.

I seem to distinctly remember him reacting to Jorge's 2015 home run and saying "You know what I call that? I like to call that a ding dong johnson", so this is definitely something new and it seems he's continued to say that. Which is amazing.

Several years ago my wife brought me home something called - "The Hottest Sauce in the Universe" - from Pepper Palace in TN - https://pepperpalace.com/collections/hot-sauce-extreme - guess its been replaced by something called - "The Hottest Sauce in the Universe, 2nd Dimension" - which I cannot even imagine its potency. For, even today, my original sauce is the hottest thing I've ever eaten, its awesome with chili, guacamole, chorizo and eggs, crawfish etouffee, jambalaya, paella, literally, just a drop is all that required to have your nose running and lips burning. Had some today with chili and an Old Nation Boss Tweed (I'm 25 - 30 minutes from Old Nation), I love IPA's with spicy food. For me, the hops, cut right through the spiciness guess that's the main point, there something about hoppy brews and spicy food. Anyone agree?

When we used to attend food/beer pairing things when we were younger, spicy and hoppy was a popular combo. To this day it's my go to taco beer.

Hop Slam' a good choice, for me Bells best brew continues to be Two Hearted Ale , over the years its been consistence in its excellence also, big fan of Founders Centennial IPA, they both have big pine notes makes sense, as the hop in both is Centennial. Whereas Boss Tweed leans more towards grapefruit nevertheless, all four would accompany spicy quite well.

It put me in Jackson, MS, which makes sense I guess since I was raised in Arkansas and lived in NOLA for twenty years. I’ve never heard of some of those terms.

I got Rockford/Aurora/Grand Rapids, and I grew up right next to Rockford.

It gave me Des Moines and Denver, even though I grew up in mostly Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

I DID spend 13 years in Chicago, though

The strongest it had for me was suburban Chicago, which is accurate. But orange was the best it could do for me and there was a lot of it. I basically fit in everywhere except the south.

Which makes sense given that I've lived all over the place.

Blinding red all over the Midwest, which confirms that my 6 years in South Carolina did not stick with me at all.

Blinding red in both Chicago and NYC. Mixed dialect from having a mother from The Bronx and father from Chicago.
