See what I did there? With the title? I was not really looking forward to this because the other three seem pretty recent. But it might be like that kind of thing where you feel like it was pretty recently that you were at Red Lobster and then you start thinking about it and it was actually four years.

And toward the end there’s a New Yawkah bit where it turns out they’re mostly gruff and lovable and kind of heroic and not just rude and over caffeinated. If that doesn’t spell “summer is here” then I don’t know what does. Except maybe a trip to Red Lobster.

Michael Phelps is entered in seven events during next week’s Olympic swimming trials, but his coach says he might not swim them all to the finals.
