The rule uses some maths based on the numeric value of each of your first, middle and last initials. To simplify things, I threw together a form that will calculate what should bring. The form is found at marsupialgurgle.com/lrbpicnic.
I have also posted the code for the form online in a public Git repository that you can take and play around with if you would like.
Update: Jen “Flash” Andrews has set up an action and donation portal to help Emily out with the recent passing of Mike Frizzell. The auction ends on 23 November 2021.
Little Red Bandwagon‘s Mike Frizzell and his wife Emily have run into some unfortunate life road bumps and pot holes in recent times. A GoFundMe campaign was started and the goal was successfully met to help them out financially.
Back on April 14th, the guys and gal behind the Little Red Bandwagon podcart (they discuss topics and discussions from TBTL and the sTens Facebook group page, plus bring on other Tens to talk about favorite moments, etc.) asked me if I was interested in being on next episode of the podcart to talk about this site, Marsupial Gurgle, my history with and favorite segment from TBTL.
My interview was published in the second half of LRB Episode 5 at around the 1:16:15 mark, which was posted on April 20th. I’ve embedded the episode below, but you can check out the podcart and additional notes at:
One thing to note is that I mentioned that I would not be able to go to the TBTL Night with the Seattle Mariners on May 28th due to work related stuff. Well, I found out that I wasn’t correct about being on-call that week and thus will be going to the match. Looking forward to seeing the Tens!
