Hey Baltimorons!

“My husband went to a conference in Maryland over Mother’s Day and I all I got was this stinkin’ flag with the winking Natty Boh man on it!”

Seriously, it’s not as crappy a present as you would imagine. It’s actually pretty thoughtful.

See, my grandfather worked for Natty Boh. Right off the boat from Germany. And a blue-collar German working in a beer factory was a pretty cool thing back in the day.

Still is.

    You’ve just made me homesick with a logo for a nasty beer. I got drunk for the first time at a minor league ballgame when I was 18 on Natty Bo. Oh, how I miss it.

    Re: blogapoamus’s comment, I also drank Natty Bo at a minor league game, watching the Fredrick Keys.
