Today’s the day — it’s National Pumpkin Day and to some of you it means being tortured by your wife/girlfriend who wants a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. Screw that. Let’s kick it up a notch and hit the hooch in the form of Captain Morgan’s limited edition Jack-O Blast spiced rum. I’m talking fresh pumpkin, cinnamon and other autumnal spices (whatever the hell autumnal spices are). Now I’m talking your language.
Get to your store and get some Jack-O. Pull out a couple of shot glasses and get the wife/girlfriend loosened up for a wild Halloween weekend. The World Series is lit. College football is hitting its stride and the NFL has to get good at some point. You’ll be doing shots with the wife/girlfriend, screaming at the TV and she’ll think you’re the greatest.
Do your thing, boys. Make sure to send pics.
