That’s Matt (another Matt, popular name here) in the picture. He thanks his mother and 15 years of soccer for an ass like that.
Irv’s bar transformed from nice slow honky-tonk to show tune karaoke when Matt and his equipment took over. Matt is both the bartender and the DJ. One minute Eric Church is Creepin‘ on the jukebox and the next, Matt is singing Suddenly Seymour with one of the barflies.
I think I was too emotional to sing after many cheap pints of Pabst. I do remember telling everyone that Carrie Underwood just might be the perfect person. “She’s beautiful, she’s talented, she’s married to a hot hockey player, she’s a vegan, and she’s for marriage equality.”
