it's a major award
I decide to celebrate the USMNT win with a delicious six pack of USA beer. I'm feeling kind of festive tonight so I pick up a 6-pk of Sam Adams Cherry Wheat since they are largest US owned brewery since Bud was sold to those Godless commie bastard Brazilians.
Anyway, I take a reading to the neck label and lo and behold, the cherries used in the beer are said to be Michigan cherries (balaton to be exact). So I call my buddy in traverse city who's married to the daughter of the Cherry Baron of Northern Michigan (kind of like the Beer Baron, but 30% less Rex Banner), and sure enough Jim Koch (owner of Sam Adams) makes yearly trips to TC to find his supplier for cherries for the year. The contract supplier to the brewery per the contract gets the first keg of Cherry Wheat brewed at the Boston brewery for that year and as many cases as requested.
So if you're looking for a way to celebrate our nation, our state, and beer, try a six pack of Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, it's delicious, good for Michigan football (the Cherry Baron's daughter is a Michigan grad and a significaant donor), and good for you.
I read the Jefferson to Pistons post a couple threads down and decided to do some Google searching to see how serious the talks might be. I type in "Al Jefferson Pistons" in the news box and get a decent amount of responses as I expected. The thing I can't figure out is why the Bleacher Report seems to be among the top responses almost across the board, even in front of major news sources like msnbc.com and cnnsi.com. I dabbled a bit in search engine optimization a couple years ago and know a bit about how to get your links noticed, but not enough to fully understand why a crap site like BR constantly finds top responses in Google News. My best guess is simply the high volume of articles they pump out, but even then I am not sure. Anybody know why this might be?
A federal grand jury just indicted former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick on 19 counts of mail fraud, wire fraud, and tax offenses. Here's the indictment: http://download.gannett.edgesuite.net/detnews/2010/pdf/KilpatrickIndictm...
In essence, he used a non-profit "civic fund" to pay his friends, send his kids to summer camp, pay for rounds of golf, a birthday party, etc., and then he neglected to report all this as income on his tax returns.
Or both? Much like this post...
What can I say...I love Jill Wagner.

Welcome to my nightmare. I always, always, ALWAYS knew that one day "consumer advocacy" and "watchdog" groups would set upon the most pure things in the world in the name of protecting us, and today, it is true.
Evidently McDonald's is evil and is intentionally TRYING to make kids fat by offering happy meals with toys in them. You know, since so many 8 year olds drive themselves out to McD's when they want a little Nosh and fork over some cash.
Parents of America! If your kid is a lard-ass, there is somebody to blame, and it's not the goddamn golden arches! Go to hell and get yourselves AWAY from my freakin' childhood. A happy meal with a toy is something for the kid to beg for, and the parent to say "no".
A buncha freakin' zombies out there. Not dead, but definitely not alive. At least not if having an ounce of self respect is required.
