3 of the 4 are football...?
The original OP title was explicitly "non-football."
Do we really need to cram all these topics into one thread? Especially if people want to talk about more than one of these items.
It's a hip hop world

Let's make this a Wednesday night drinking thread too. I am at the wolverine state brewery tap room waiting for trivia to start. I am drinking a mug of a brown IPL called "the sins of carlito."
How do you like the beer? I'm hoping to try some at the beer festival this weekend in Ypsi.
I'll be cracking a Lucky U IPA from Breckenridge after I get a bit more studying done.
Also: I'm pretty sure my GF is MC-ing your trivia game tonight in place of the normal guy- though she may be at a different location.
If you have access to Breckenridge beers, I highly recommend the small batch 471 double IPA. I just went to their tasting room last week and it was delicious off the tap ($3 for a pint too).
I'll keep an eye out for sure, thanks for the tip! Here in Chicago we get some, but it's limited beyond the basics.
Wolverine's darks are great. They do a great IPA. The Gulo series of IPL are my fave.
not sure what X did to earn automatic neg-bombs (& yes, I am too lazy to try & find out), but I can't hardly view anything he says ... how come when I click to expand his post, it automatically collapses back down a moment later? anyone else experience that? maybe it's a chrome thing. er ... sorry for the OT ramblings.
Set and save your threshold on -1 for the thread settings, between the OP and the comments. No annoying post collapses.
ah righto, thanks man. I didn't think about that.
Hope this helps!
Dragon: If you want to be able to click to view negbombed posts without them recollapsing instantly, it's always worked for me to simply refresh the page (just so you know, in the likely event that your F5 key has been reduced to smoking rubble during recruiting season, CTL+R also works)
What?!?! There's been trivia there this entire time I've lived within walking distance to that place? I love bar trivia. It satifies my urge to show off my knowledge of utterly useless things as well as my urge to drink during the week without feeling like an alcoholic...
Oh, I've just come to terms with the mid-week drinking. That feeling passes with time. You should go over there- the beers are good as is the trivia- they go on for awhile and the winning team gets a mug club membership, IIRC.
They make good beers there too. I dig the Gulo, but I've not had as much an opportunity to have the various types dark lagers. Seems like whenever I'm back in AA (no pun intended re: first sentence of this entry) we never made it over there. I just hate the idea of having to drive back after imbibing for a couple hours.
Pint Night (keep the glass) of Maredsous Brune at the Gingerman in Rice Village (Houston, TX) after 3 days of Jury Duty in Mandarin.
Didnt know that national tequila day was yesterday until I woke up this morning. Going to be a belated celebration
I'm at 35,000 feet drinking a beer while crammed into seat on Delta... good times.
For those interested Matt Barkley is doing an AMA on reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/CFB/comments/x5lrk/iam_matt_barkley_quarterback_of_the_usc_trojans/
One question he was asked what stadium he'd most like to play at. His response?
"Wanted to play at the Big House!! And rock out to "Seven Nation Army" haha.. MY song.."
I just got done reading it, and checked for mention of it here before posting it myself. There are several good mentions of UM and OSU, as well as him proving that he knows how to Reddit. I'm impressed.
this is ... fascinating. seems like an all right guy.
I am settling down to some Leffe and the Tigers game, having breathed a huge sigh of relief that I made it through my mid-year review with phrases like "encourages a spirit of collaboration" and "uses continuous improvement principles to drive change". I always go into these with some anxiety, but I feel good about myself tonight, so good beer is only appropriate.
congrats! *clinking of glasses*

Pancaked? Does that mean guys were in pads already even though it's only July?
Drinking Yuengling, waiting for my beach volleyball league game to start.
730 AM patient, thus means I have to wake up at 530. No booze :(
Will start Civ5 while wife watches her DVRd tv shows.
Drinking Natty Light and wondering if I will ever get too old for it.
Natty and keystone got me through high school.
Me too. And college. And most of grad school. . .
I atleast graduated from Natty to Busch light when I got to college. No offense to anyone outside of college who still drinks it, but I'm at the age where if I can't (or don't want to) spend the money to get something better than Natty ice/light and Busch, I don't think I should be drinking beer at all at that time or place.
Of course, if it's not a monetary thing at all and you just prefer the taste of said adult beverages over others, that is a whole nother weird issue unto itself.
I have the next two days off. Anyone have any beer suggestions that are available throughout the midwest?
Oh sure, where are you located and what sort of beers are you into/dont like?
I'm pretty sure I'd enjoy making sweet sweet love to that girl.
so I could watch Futurama at the same time. No sense in wasting that awesome restraint job on the chair.
Brannigan's Law is like Brannigan's love, hard and fast.
Um...it seems to me that this very nice, respectable looking lady has somehow mistaken her belt for her undergarments...
Is that a chastity belt? The guy on the TV is wearing the same one. She must be a big fan.
Chastity belt? That's going to chafe the willie.
I'm drinking a glass of cold milk while studying for my tax final tomorrow. Wooooo!!!
Early, mid, and late week drinking prevail. Labatt, Jimmy B. Classy? No. Good enough to do the job while watching the tigers till "The Best Sammich in America" on Travel Chanel comes on, featuring the Yardbird from Slow's comes on? Absolutely.
I just had my first dogfish head 120 IPA.... It was awesome
How much did you pay?
My local store has it for $11.99.....for a freaking bottle.
Would rather pay the $9.99 for a 4-pack of 90 minute...
It was $9.99 for the bottle last one they had left...decided to pull the trigger since I never see it or have never had one.
At least we for sure got 1 this year.
There goes the lead
I had a few coronas with my dinner tonight. Enjoying the Tigers game with my Grandpa right now.
On another topic, anyone read about the 14 year old QB that just committed to the Washington Huskies? Recruiting in football appears like it's heading down the same path as basketball recruiting with earlier and earlier commits every year. This just seems absolutely crazy to me.
Tonight's beer list:
Started with a Roy Pitz Mind Your P's and Q's (trippel)
Next up, Old Engine Oil (old ale)
Alba Scots Pine Ale (pine ale)
ended with a Fraoch Heather Ale
Old Engine Oil carried the day.
No, I'm not a college student!

Essays are reaching acceptable draft form, except for one really horrible topic that only lives in outline form. You all have inspired me to drive to the gas station and pick up some tall boys.
Tigers hang on and we get a monumental win for American soccer.
Spent the evening at Dominick's which means I am hot and grumpy. That place was so charming when I was less of an old hag. Now, not so much.
Long, sweaty day at work followed up by hanging out in air conditioning and getting at least a little buzzed this evening.
High Life is better than I remembered from those college days up north. Next on deck: Yuengling.
Not drinking anything tonight because i ate so much that I don't have any room for some beer. I took my mom out to Mancy's Steakhouse in Toledo for a double celebration. Today was her birthday, and yesterday she found out that she was cancer free after being diagnosed with the most aggressive type of breast cancer a year and a half ago. Couldn't be happier right now.
Awesome. Just, awesome. Congrats.
That is so great to hear.
Yeah, Yuengling is way better than High Life.
what "you" means.
Also, for anyone interested, what's the difference between avaian flu and swine flu?
I'm watching our glorious wins over JoePa. They seem extra sweet these days.
Thanks to recent NCAA sanctions against Ohyo and Psu RR's record at Michigan has improved to 15-18. Awww yeah.
Darn. Thanks for the clarification.
