The Weekend Desk Report

This edition of The Weekend Desk Report brought to you by the $2 ($1 on Mondays and Thursdays) 10 oz. mugs of Old Style from the tap at the Two Way, frosted and refrigerated for your enjoyment and always served with the possibility of violence in the general vicinity.

This weekend's Beachwood Radio Hour is still in the works. Topics will include David Carr, Jackie Robinson West and the mayoral campaign. Most depressing yet?

Speaking of Jackie Robinson West - and I hope we stop doing so soon - I consider this weekend's edition of The Beachwood Radio Sports Hour a must-listen for the clarity Jim "Coach" Coffman brings to facts of the case most people seem unaware of and misconceptions that keep getting repeated. Also: Great stuff on the Bulls and Blackhawks - and more!
