Third Grade Thursdays

Are your Thursdays just merely the fourth night of the week? Just the day leading up to Friday? Well, fret no more. We’re starting a new tradition up here in Hartford. Thursday nights have now become a launching point for bouts of nostalgia and uncalled for amounts of drinking. You guessed it: Third Grade Thursdays.

What does that mean, you may ask. To that I say, give me your Segas, your Super Nintendos, your huddled Playstations yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming youths. And bring along a case a beer and get ready for the long haul. Work tomorrow may be awful, sure, but I’ll tell you one thing’s for damn sure, I just finished up a two hour round of Twisted Metal 2 and I’m not the least bit mad about it. Responsibility is playing second fiddle because Spectre is running the streets of Paris.

I’m taking a little break from the madness as we speak to put this post up, but I also had to stop because to bear witness to the greatest display of original Super Mario the world has ever seen. My boy is ripping through world 7 with no end in sight. Underwater levels? Ain't no thing. Octupuses? They ain't got shit.

On that note, World 8 is about to start, and this is can't miss TV. After this we’re moving on to Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. And next week we start the journey that is Metal Gear Solid.

All I can say is Thursdays are back...with a vengeance.

    I'm so glad you picked Spectre. I could have also accepted Warthog. Basically anyone but Axel
