Editor's note: TGP just received a short e-mail (!) this morning from an old friend. After a hastily arranged teleconference with Pat's representatives, Mike and The Guy, during which there were lots of awkward pauses and people talking over each other regarding permission to post its contents, we herewith set forth the agreed-upon contents, and, as usual, provide The Complete Set of Links to previous episodes of Veteran Clubhouse Presence, below.

The TV reporters, they screen for looks, like that hot TV reporter in St. Louis who [redacted].
Anyways, gotta jam. My gloves and hands are all sweaty now., See you this summer. Keep all your important parts warm, you pathetic losers. Ha.
