USS Missouri Night at the K

Boulevard announced a while back that they'd be supporting the commissioning ceremony for the new USS Missouri this summer. The sub, which will enter active duty at the end of this July, will join her Virginia class sister ships in replacing the clearly inferior Los Angeles class subs. I couldn't reach Tom Clancy for a comment so I'm just going to assume this is a significant step forward in the fight against the heartless Commie menace. KC Meesha better watch out.

Tonight's game at the K is officially USS Missouri Night. I don't know exactly what that means, other than a patriotic montage of American flags on the jumbotron and possibly a fly over set to the Scorpion's 1984 hit 'Rock You Like a Hurricane.' There will be a Boulevard presence at the K, hopefully they'll bring some pilsner with them so I get a taste of 'merican freedom while the Royals embarrass themselves in front of the Mariners. Oh, and it's Buck night, so if you're at the game you might see me standing in line for $1 Twinkies...

To help foot the bill for the commissioning ceremony, which will be held in Connecticut, Boulevard is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Boulevard Pilsner during the months of May, June and July to the USS Missouri committee. The committee needs to raise about $300,000, which is a lot of Pilsner... so do your part to help our boys put Uncle Joe and his ice hockey playing bears in their place.

If you're in the market for Boulevard Pilsner, be on the lookout for new pilsner 12 packs coming soon. The new boxes will carry a picture of the new submarine which is sure to elicit jokes about seamen, long tubes and the crisp refreshing taste of pilsner beer.


  1. Pilsner 12 packs are out now. I saw them at Tipsy's last week.

  2. I don't think I should fear anything named Missouri. Kansas - maybe, but MO? I don't think so.

  3. I love the Los Angeles class, especially when they added the VLS tubes to the 719 series. The BSY-1 sonar they put in the last 53 could pick up a minnow fart in the middle of a typhoon.

    But one of the neatest features are the 12 volt battery posts that can be used to jump start a car battery. Apparently some JCOS thought a photo op of a Navy sub jump starting his prized '57 Chevy would be good publicity. See if your fancy-schmancy Virginia class can top that!
