So why Dog and A Beer?
Well, personally I like both. One dog, many brands and types of beers.
But the blog name came from a line in the hugely popular baseball movie, Field of Dreams.
The one-time activist Terrance Mann (James Earl Jones) has been “kidnapped” by dreamer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) to see a baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston (nod to the hometown). At the concession stand when Ray asks his captive what he wants, Mann pontificates about what he doesn’t want anymore. But Ray’s innocent question, misunderstood by Mann, is very simple. Mann laughs. He gets it now. “Dog and a beer.”
Life is so simple. We make it complicated.
So Dog and Beer it is.
