If you’ve been reading this blog for any stretch of time, you know the Truck Day drill. A joke about the song “Convoy.” A reference to the Sam Peckinpah flick of the same name (which co-stars, as the box proudly proclaims, Burt Young and Ernest Borgnine). But deep down inside, I know that Truck Day is a promise. A promise that the snow’s gonna melt. The lawn will grow green. And the soothing tones of Jerry Remy and Don Orsillo will soon be here to guide me gently through those thick, steamy summer nights.

Pants optional today, people. It’s f@#kin’ Truck Day!
