Let's forget that basketball game and focus on getting drunk. Hopslam finally made its way over to Wisconsin so I'm enjoying some of that tonight.
Drown your sorrows. Saturday night drinking thread
I am drinking key lime-flavored sparkling beverage and mulling my plans for the evening.
If you had gone up to BGSU with justingoblue, you wouldn't have to mull any plans.
I turn left by the mosque and continue up 23 to Ann Arbor. Or I stop at the convenient rest stop by the highway.
My best friend is from Ohio (Akron) and he wanted no part of driving to Bowling Green. Apparently he really dislikes the area; I've never been so I have no idea what it's like.
Well, that and his first ever hockey game was the Frozen Diamond, which probably scared him away from the sport forever. Great day for the one of us who was wearing blue, though.
May need some quantity today.
and bought a newcastle mini keg. I'm setting my over under for pints at 7. I'm taking the over.
Rum and coke. As the only fan of the NBA left standing, I will be thoroughly intoxicated by the end of these all-star festivities.
Forecast: The dunk contest *isn't* back, baby.
To send the seniors out like that. Hopefully this just motivates the team to another level, and who knows maybe we get some breaks from state and ohio and still have a shot at the regular season title. Anything is possible. Go blue.
I think the bigger problem is...
"Could have been B1G Champions"
"Now we're going to be in 3rd place"
I guess, but a year ago we were a team that barely made the tournament. This year we were a win away from a b1g title (which is pretty meaningless in college bball, FWIW).
I can't afford the real Rothschild, so the cousin will have to do...
As a fellow wino, I cracked an 05 Pic Saint Loup this evening. The French do know how to make them.
What if we aren't old enough to drink? I going to resort to saying Fuck over and over again and banging my head against a wall
1) Are you 19 or older?
2) Do you have a valid passport?
3) Are you within driving distance to Canada?
If you answered "yes" to each question, then problem solved. May the fucking and banging cease.
Jack & coke till the Jack ran out. Thank Bo i have vodka. Ill take our situation concidering i just wanted to finish top 5 in the B1G this year. Still a putrid performance.
Pretty brave drinking dark and white my friend. Hope you don't have anything productive to do tomorrow.
Well, Columbus is chilly tonight. Looks like I'll need some layers.
So I've rounded up my signature bottle Maker's Mark (you know, superb blood warmer)
I will then suit up in my randomly acquired Bucky costume, blast some House of Pain, and proceed to jump around.
Maybe I'll upload the whole experience, but I plan on jumping around till I vomit or actually GET jumped, whichever comes first.
Oh, and I know what you're thinking:
1.) Yes, I will be "retarded"
2.) Yes, I am one block away from Lane Ave.
Oh well, to each his own. Go Me, Go You, Go Blue. I despise Columbus.
Who is he even referring to? Rivals' top 5 WRs don't seem to have much interest in OSU.
and talking about WR Robert Foster. He is very good but that doesn't make their class better than ours. They think he is a lock to them but he is enamored with MSU and has a lot of interest in local schools Pitt and PSU.
Not that it's so uncommon, but coumbus fans like to walk around with an undeserved sense of achievement.
That's not the worst I've heard on Ohio blogs. Most posters say Michigan's haul is nothing and they would take their 4 "dynamic" players over our "guys". No logic or rationale what so ever but what do you expect.
OT, but does this site need a new server? It has been going down much, much more lately. I don't know about you guys, but personally I would be willing to donate some cash if Brian started some sort of "server drive."
Having a 503 Error on a Tuesday night against Northwestern probably shows that this site might need a new server. =/
So are you implying that we didn't get a 4 star halfback today named "Monkey Bread?"
If we're going to keep having Hoke, Beilein, and Berenson as coaches, we're going to need a bigger server.
Oban, with four icecubes! then another oban with three icecubes! then another oban with two icecubes! then another oban with one icecube! then oban out of the bottle!
I'm going to sip on this Pepsi and chill out.
To match the internal bitterness I'm feeling right now.
Is a very drastic measure indeed.
Just got myself another 6-pack of Hopslam today, enjoying that right now.
gonna get absolutely shit faced on stroh's and old milwaukee
Pretty solid into a bottle of wine over here. Even thinking about watching the rest of season 1 of Downton Abbey.
Just one to take the edge off.
Enjoying some VA cab franc, will transition to hop slam and nugget nectar when the bottle runs out.
Jesus, when it goes south it REALLY goes south.
The WIngs have their home streak snapped on a goal by the Canucks with 15 seconds left and then lose in OT. UM hockey loses to Bowling Green--BOWLING GREEN!! on Friday night. UM B-ball coughs up a hairball on senior night AT HOME, just when the B10 title was up for grabs. Now the Wings are down 3-0 to the Av's at home--AT HOME! Last I checked UM hockey was scoreless in the 2nd at Bowling Green--BOWLING GREEN!
When does football start?
Absolut Vodka, chilled, straight up. In my Michigan shot glass of course.
Jesus. Is this what happens when Hoke goes on vacation? WTF. Off to find some cider.
Have a burger & sober up:
Remember how good last Saturday was? This Saturday almost sucks that much.
Vodka. Grapefruit juice. Bitter and boozy is the way for tonight.
I think the better question is "what am I not drinking?"
But on a night like this few can truly drown the sorrows. The following is one of them:
Pabst Blue Ribbon (in the bottle obv classy) and Jager.....drowning the sorrows of sending Novak and Stuey out on that note
Sailor Jerry and diet in Fla. Heading down to the pool now - takes the sting out of losing... Somewhat
and lots of it. Still very proud of this team.
Finishing a case of Shiner Bock then margaritas here
Drove by a place in Naples today called Mr. Tequila. Heading there after a swim
Also found out my mother in law buys special matches for when she goes to the bathroom. Trying to drink this out of my memory
In 22 oz. bottles. Hoppy hoppy hoppy!
Well, this is just fantastic. I go with my wife to a sad ass movie (You know the one; Tom Hanks dies in WTC, his kid with asperger's goes nuts...) then I come home to check scores and see all this crap. Wings, Wolverines, WTF?
Damnit. This is what I get for spending time with my wife and not watching sports.
listening to a very good singing group,while enjoying my third purple shot...more to come!!!
Gloom, despair, and agony on me,
Deep, dark, depression,
If it weren't for bad luck,
I'd have no luck at all.
Gloom, despair, and agony on me.
We should be 2nd place in the big ten if we win our next two.
Duvel, Stone IPA, Southern Tier Choklat, and Oliver Creeper.
I'm drinking a drink I like to call a Blind Referee, which is short for Fuck These Fucking Jackwipe Referees Who Think Every Fucking Thing On Earth Is A Foul. It's just a scotch, but I drink it extra angrily.
Like last Saturday and every other day of the year, it's still great to be a Wolverine. Drinking water right now, trying to decide on a night cap. I've got some Zubrowka that my wife brought from Poland, but I'll probably save that for a special occasion and go with red wine out of a box (I know, it's kind of like saying I'm trying to decide between filet mignon and a McDonald's--but hell, they're both good in their own way).
Chocolate Milkshake with my 4yr old, who just told me Urban Meyer is big stupid butt. I may have to take her shopping tomorrow!!!
Homemade ginger ale, Alton Brown recipe. Tastes great and full of energy to get over last night's loss. Going to be a great day.
