I'm totally bored, totally sick of snow and totally into True Detective right now. Last drinking thread there appeared to be others into it.
What say you people of the MGoBoard? Who watched True Detective? Where do you see it going? Last night they set up the possibility that Cohle is behind some of the murderous happenings down in Louisiana. I'm not seeing it, but can't ignore the possibility.
Other winter distractions?
The Walking Dead has returned with its ever-slowing plots.
House of Cards Season 2 is out. I've never watched it, but I know its big.
We're just six-ish weeks from the return of Game of Thrones.
And, when all else fails, there's beer to discuss. I'm tipping back a Bell's Amber Ale at the moment.
SPOILER PROTOCOL: For the sake of everyone, I propose the following: Talking about anything that's happened in any of these shows, to date, is fair game. Talking about events/characters/plot points that have yet to occur in the shows (Walking Dead and GoT to be specific) should be verboten and considered dirty spoiling.
So, if you are not up to date on the TV shows, tread lightly. If you are a book/comic reader and know future plot happenings, those of us who just watch would appreciate your discretion.
Friday night Thread for the Spreading of Holiday Cheer and Detailing of Consumption of Delicious Alcoholic Beverages
And what is everyone having as we head into the Christmas weekend? I'm getting an earlyish Sam Adams "White Christmas" in and will probably switch later to a half-glass of Sailor Jerry's (can't get too crazy since it's an early start tomorrow on the road to Atlanta for Christmas), all the while enjoying the simple idea of being inside with Christmas music queued up on the stereo with snow on the ground and a breezy wind outside. Beautiful evening.
I have never started this thread before, but I have started drinking. I am honored to have an opportunity to load it up tonight.
For me, a (somewhat embarassing) change from the usual, as Jack Daniel's has been put on the back burner for the cheaper, yet suprisingly decent Evan Williams Black Lable. I am not so ignorant as to think that Evan Williams is better than Jack, but today, for half the price, I can dig it.
Oklahoma @ WVU on Fox, Stanford @ Oregon on ABC at 8, and Kansas St. @ Baylor on ESPN at 8.
It would be best for Michigan if WVU wins, if Oregon wins, and if Kansas St. wins.
