Trivia time with the summer boys.

Hey, I’m not going to deny it: fall is my favorite season. Not just because of the baseball postseason (which I’ll ask you about next Saturday), but because we wake up with a slight chill in the air and go to bed with a mild chill from the open windows. And even if it rains, I’d rather be wet from rain than wet from sweat.
