Today is my good friend Vincent Antonelli’s 39th birthday. It is a great time of the year, because he and I will be the same age . . . for about five months. Hey, as the old guy in my circle of dysfunctional friends, I’ll take what I can get.
Vinnie and I met in high school, worked at the same deli all through college – it was like Clerks, before there was a Clerks – and have been playing on the same ice hockey line for years. We usually know what the other is thinking on the ice, but still find ways to mess up a play. I was honored to be the best man at his wedding – everyone else must have said no – and I think his wife is the greatest. He’s an all-around good guy, and today is the only day of the year I’ll say that. Heh.
I value his friendship, his taxi service, and his beermeister full o’ Guinness. Happy birthday, Vin!
And now, for your gift. Click the link: .
5PM UPDATE: After a night full of post-hockey game shots, Vinnie just began Round 2 with Guinness and Jaeger Bombs! Mmm . . .
