A happy Tuesday to y’all. This is Eric filling in for Becca for today’s links. We are one day away from the summer solstice AKA the longest day of the year and there is some warmer weather predicted ahead later this week in the Seattle area (hopefully), so it’s time to fully accept the summer into our lives.

In Mariners news:

  • Friendly reminder that if you are in the Seattle are next Saturday, you simply must come watch the Mariners play the Orioles with all of your goofy LL buddies at Growler Guys on Lake City Way. It’s a good ol’ time and you can be as social or not social as you wanna be, but sometimes it’s just fulfilling to watch this dumb team with folks on similar wavelengths as you. Hope to see ya there!

  • Die young or live long enough to become Coach McGuirk:
