Shoutout to @YukonRon

These arrived today from @YukonRon
I’ll leave it to @YukonRon to tell the full lore of these but will succinctly say they involve the Kentucky Derby and Mint Juleps. What is most impressive though is that Ron remembered our conversation through an intoxicated haze late Saturday night / Sunday morning of BBIII. Props to you good sir for remembering to send these and for being a man of his word. Thanks

    Just kidding Ron. Looking forward to the story.

    Looks like they would work well as an accessory for BB- the b' plug.  ;)

    My son just opened my package and said that there are a few more than the number I requested (which was 2).

    THANK YOU @YukonRon !!!

    If memory serves me correctly (it doesn’t) it is the core of a Louisville Slugger used as a Mint Julep muddler.

    makes sense now. I figured it was something like that but then perspective is everything. Based on the pictures these could have been the size of Chess pieces and I woulda been way off base saying that.

    Actually they are the nubs from the billet used to turn the Louisville Slugger wood bat.  Each billet is 37" long and depending on the length of bat produced you will have various excess length end pieces (one from each end) which are cut off after the bat is turned and end up as souvenirs.  FWIW-

    Thanks, the whole story was a blur at the time but they looked interesting and Mint Juleps .... must acquire one of these.

    Another shout out to @YukonRon from TX. 


    But be careful of these feisty things... I requested 3 and they multiplied to 12 by the time they got here :)

    And since you were adamant about not accepting reimbursement for these or shipping, I’ll try and make sure that I pay it forward. 

    Much appreciated, brother.

    @TEXASBGE2018
    Send me your address, I will send you some.
    No biggie.
    I had hoped to bring these to Butt Blast 3 so I could hand them out, but could not get them in time.
    Neighbors love them. Hope you will too.
